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.
ok i thought as much just wasn't sure. thank you
Helping your teammates in arena or anywhere else by slowing or CC'ing opponents.
My wife calls skinning "peeling".
Just FYI ;-P
Basically means to get a player off of your teammate by any means necessary (stuns, roots, silences, fears, etc)
Thank you for the mental image of a nelf peeling a dragon with a potato peeler. I'll grin like a moron all day now^^

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