Some how I had a team get a rez off on a 3's team I joined from trade chat a few weeks ago. I had 4 KB's that game.
I was very confused on how to take that match. :/
Priests are nonexistant in the arena teams i meet but man if i get aoe feared down the ramps falling thru the world i bet the priest can ress his mate up easily with haste.
There really isn't any reason for res to be in Arena. It's kinda cheesy. The only time it could ever be pulled off is if there was a cross-kill in a 3v3 game and it went down to 2v2.
If 2 people left alive were a Mage + Healer, Rogue + Healer and maybe even Hunter + Healer, then it is possible to 8s CC one and stun lock the other for your healer to get off a hasted resurrection. It'd force trinkets on the other team and you could just rinse repeat a little while later.
I've(Feral druid) been successfully res'd in two's(At 90) at 1590 rating by my partner(hpally), was fighting a hunter/ret pally combo. They got lucky with crits and got me down and my partner ran away and managed to get mounted. Spent the next 2-3min running around trolling them, so they each went to one side of the arena and waited for him. He dismounted in midfield and res'd me before they got back to stop him. One minute later we won the match(all my cd's had come up again) and I then spent the next 10minutes wiping the tears streaming down my face from laughing so hard.
Also previously res'd someone back in TBC but yeah it's pretty damn infrequent.
Overall I don't mind resurrection in arena except when a shaman casts it and then kites around a pillar for 8sec while still getting the res off.
Spirit walker's grace is stupid. In fact I don't get why every caster now have ways to run and cast spells.
I've pulled off some wins with ressing in 3v3 games before (2.1k mmr or so). All I had to do was get the 2 people left (It was a 2v2 at that point) to focus me while the shaman started getting a spiritwalker's grace ress off going LoS then I'd get a clutch howl of terror on both of them. If one of them had a trinket I'd just fear him for half followed by a death coil/blanket spell lock
Edit: Also if you were a Night elf disc priest in s8 you could just get a double fear then power infusion into shadowmeld and start casting a fear instantly with a 6 sec cast time
ive been rezzed 3 times in a 3s game once lol. they were awful but it was fucking hilarious. we still lost. i died a 4th time.
ive also pulled off a spiritwalker's rez AND shocked the other team's rez before he got it off. most epic 2v2 game of my life.
By the time you can't kill a person, or simply get to a person every 15.5 seconds to stop a rez, then you shouldn't even play arena xD
Why not lol? Seriously?
