Thread: Peeling

  1. #1


    noob question but i have been reading thru some of the threads and people keep mentioning peeling. What is peeling? and how do you effectively "peel" someone?

    When a healer is in distress, like has a dk and pally with cooldowns beating on them, the healer's ally can "peel" them off by slowing/stunning/rooting them.

    Basically means to get a player off of your teammate by any means necessary (stuns, roots, silences, fears, etc)

    Basically what everyone else said, snares, roots, stun etc.

    When you see a warrior pop avatar or a ret with wings up etc is when you want to start peeling.
