So Happy Holidays to everyone! I hope you have a great end to this old year and an even better start to the new one.
On to WOW topics, I started rocking in the Arenas with a Holy Pala recently. I must say, Warriors are still pretty decent with a healer shoved up their behinds. The thing is, a lot has changed in this new season and the people who whine the most are the ones who are likely having troubles adapting. That's the thing, you need to adapt and use new playstyles to be effective.
For example, having Recklessness, Retaliation and Shield Wall on a 5-min cooldown (and a 10 sec cooldown in between using each of the abilities) is a huge boost in the Arenas. When used correctly (with, say, Bladestorm AFTER the other team has blown their major defensive cooldowns), it's quite, quite effective.
Warriors are still monsters in there, I'm etching towards 1700 with no major snags along the way. The biggest difference, however, is that I can't simply fire off a Mortal Strike and forget. I need to think about my cooldowns and how I blow them. We are a lot more dependent on big CDs than we ever were before. That's not necessarily a bad thing.
As for the Battlegrounds, it's a different story, mostly because I don't have my cooldowns as readily accessible. In that sense, we are not as good as we were in BGs, but to me, Arenas are where it's at anyway.
As for this latest episode, the white rat is Trevor's... OMG!
