    Brawler's Guild!

    Is anyone else really really excited about Brawler's guild? Info here:

    http://www.mmo-champion.com/content/2961-Patch-5-1-on-PTR-Official-Patch-Notes


    Excerpt:

    Brawler's Guild

    Underground fighting rings have sprung up in Stormwind and Orgrimmar that will give brawlers a chance to earn bragging rights by testing their solo PvE mettle against some of the toughest creatures found in World of Warcraft.
    Players will prove their skill, and increase their rank with the Brawler's Guild, as they win matches against some of the most difficult solo encounters in World of Warcraft.
    As their Brawler's Guild rank increases, players will unlock additional rewards and activities within the Brawler’s Guild.
    Brawlers on a realm will gather together into the blood spattered ring to watch as their peers face down their own opponents. They can watch the battles in progress to learn from hardened Brawler's Guild veterans as they wait for their own turn to fight.
    If this is your first night at Brawler's Guild, you have to fight.

    I smiled ear to ear when I read this! Sounds really fun to me. I enjoy soloing difficult raid bosses (being a paladin *cough*) so it will be nice to get something out of it! I am a little worried that they say "wait their own turn to fight." I hope this isn't a queue...

    Im so looking forward to this, but i hope that being Blood DK i wont faceroll it, that would be a HUGE disappointment if the top 100 players on an server was all blood DKs and prot paladins ^^
    I put the laughter in manslaughter
    Blood DK problems: to many ppl at daily place, cant pull 8packs *cries*

    Yeah, it might as well be called the Blood DK's guild.

    Yeh this sounds pretty awesome, I hope it turns out ok. I dont raid anymore and enjoy solo content so this could be right up my alley.
    I'm thinking it will be like one of the last firelands dailies where you kill one of four(or 5?) named elites that have specific abilities to avoid except much harder of course.

    It'll probably be varied from spec to spec.

    I have a feeling this will be as much like soloing old content as scenarios are like doing a dungeon >.<

    I did think it sounded kind've neat. Sounded like an easier way to solo powerful mobs than tracking down and camping rares.

    tbh I'd love it just for that last line

    but even with that aside I still think it's a great idea and my Brewmaster can't wait to get in there and pwn some faces!
    Reading the A song of Ice and Fire series is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere and shoots the puppy, then punches you in the face

    i wonder how it will work? is it just a pure dps thing? will things be different for tanks? can healers do it too?

    It's about time we got something that was like a solo PvE challenege.

    I just hope that you can do it as much as you want to every day.
    A storm is on the horizon, and I’m standing here alone
    Got a pistol on my hip an' it's gon' be some shit, so if you want it then bring it on
    See, I'm a motherfuckin' soldier and I’mma be here 'til it’s done
    And when they asking who I'm is, shit, you just tell them that I’m the one

    I hope this won't be fun only for dps/tanks.

    This is something I'm concerned about as well. Some classes are just plain better at soloing than others, so how are they going to balance this?

    it probably would be. it's not called the medic's guild or anything.
    Nelf Druid. Tank/Melee/Feral PVP. Dreadmaul

    They will likely have mechanics that make them more than just a "use your abilities wisely" fight. At least, if Blizz decides to do it right. They can easily make fights where you have to use the environment, movement, item or situationally given abilities, etc.

    Of course, it seems inevitable that some specs/classes end up consistently on top. They can't balance every spec around 1v1 fights, I don't think.
    Win and live. Lose and die.
    Rule of life. No change rule.
    Running worse than losing.
    Random casual stuff now

    Perhaps put either healing absorption effects or enrage timers.
