This is about low level pvp by the way...so dont flame,and this is my first post as well
Well, to introduce ,i played this game quite some time ago so i am not new to it..i never really did low level pvp before,maybe 1 or 2 bgs but this is actually the time were i looked into it....and i was shocked.Now i see why people were bitching at some low level classes
long story short, i saw the ad on google while browsing, decided to download it and needless to say i was back in the game
This is "TRIAL" STARTER lvl 20 edition btw, let me explain how it works.Basically, you can do everything, go to any zone, kill any mob, get anything you want, enter any dungeon.But the system turns your exp off automatically ,you cant level past level 20.You cant use the AH, you cant whisper/talk(unelss they are added on your friends list),and you cant trade. But ,if you need something, say, you can pick up your own profession, make it, then drop it and pick up something else.Say i need enchants for my weapons,i farm the mats and items, d/e them until i get the needed level, make the enchants, drop enchanting, pick up another profession(say i need LW for armor kits or something else).You can even get BoA items through Honor points by switching them to Justice.So in theory,and in reality you can have a well-rounded twink
It might sound difficult killing a lvl 30 mob with a lvl 20 for a profession but it is not, you are "twinked"(dont know if these trials can be called twinks, they dont have a max lvl supporting them),but in reality its not.You can basically gear best in slot in roughly a week or 2 of playtime if you dedicate
I read the pvp twink guides ranging from 2007 to 2011 on what gear to pick, spec to choose(some seem outdated,but still hold good info)
I geared mine out to basically best in slot, took me roughly 15 days
And i was ready to do battlegrounds,only to be horrified.....i literally cannot go toe to toe against any class 1vs1, even with my gear unless the opponent is severly lagging/bad geared and skill or all of the above.It got much better now since i respeced from arms to protection, and this patch gave a 25% higher damage shield slam. Even if my racial is up(only cd i have basically) i dont really stand a chance...
Say for example a hunter spots me in mid.Sure, they do not hit as much now..( i remember low level hunters 1shotting),now Arcane shot only hits ~110dmg and 40 autoshot on me , and his pet hits 70 damage claw/20 white hits. Now it doesnt sound like alot but i only have 1700hp so i can go down quite fast.
I on the other hand hit 500-550,and 1000 criticals with Shield slam.Now,sure that sounds like alot but the thing is....
Let me tell you what abilities hunters have are Concussive shot,pet ability(they like disarm,both shield/weapon, spider can web i think, bat is another stun, etc), pet intimidationstun, pet charge root, disengage , scatter shot and Narrow escape talent.Problem is,once i charge in there, i cant go past his stuns, and i already have concussive shot applied to me which equals slow but sure death.How is this fair?He has like 10 abilities to work with, and i dont have any!
Oh, and i dont even have a damn snare. Hamstring requires level 36 now.THIRTY SIX for melee ,his Concussive shot is lvl 8 and he is ranged. Oh, and now i looked at the tooltip it says 5 second cooldown 6 second duration and it requires now mana to cast....what is this fallacy?He can practically keep me slowed infinitely!
Oh, and another thing.Hunter pets can Charge too, so i can find myself interrupted in a middle of a charge animaton if we open up at the same time which basically means i am effed....and any type can specced charge now, the rank system seems to be competelty gone.What also baffles me is what HE CAN FIRE AUTOSHOT AND STEADY SHOT WHILE MOVING...(isnt it called a steady shot?)....practically,sure i can Charge incombat, but its a 25 yard rage, and his ranged shots are FORTY....WTF IS THIS......
No deadzone too now i noticed as i died right next to hunters and they kept on shooting..So,if i have no snare at this level, he can basically stay at 6 yards, were it will spam me "Target is too close" to deny Charge,yet it will spam me "Target is too far away" for basic melee
Or,if a rogue opens up on me,i die as well, its 50/50 if he has his evaison up Find Weakness as well i had a 1300 evis critical coming from a trial rogue on a protection warrior..how is this fair, he has ambush, armor ignore capabilities and evasion....and i dont have Overpower.....so i basically have to tank him for the duration of evasion hearing "dodge and miss" rage starving me
Whats also OP is their crippling poisons, rogues always seem to deny you your charge ,so it says "target is too close". And Thisle tea is op too, i had a rogue ambush me , build up combo points, thisle tea and kill me in seconds. What.the.eff just happened i am a mail wearing class
Wait i do have abilities....Thunderclap which is useless, it no longer slows the target),
Sunder Armor which costs FIFTEEN RAGE and is 4% while the rogue one is instant appliation and is 70%, Victory rush (useless as well,i barely get any kills),
Exexute (which is stupid as well,once they are in execute state they are pretty much dead seconds later, and 2.5k armor paladins were able to survive my executes as well),oh and i have Taunt.Yea man,ima taunt you mofos for killing me so easy. Who was the designer for giving out these abilities, i swear...makes me literally rage right now
I wont even go into paladins with infinite heals and long stuns, mass armor, druids with powershifting out of snares and infinite heals with Rejuv/mana/ and insane damage and mobility, or priests with mass bubbles and high-damage penance and fears
The only damn class i can fight are other warriors right now, others.....well i just.freaking.cant. I had a warlock disarm me, fear and conflagate spam me.Sure,he was weak but all the dots added up...........and i died.WHAT THE EFF, I DONT HAVE A SINGLE SPELL INTERRUPT while other classes get to cast all sorts of abilities .......my Pummel ability requires level 24 >.<
And rogues get theirr kick. I did roll a Blood Elf for the racial, but it is on a 2 minute cooldown and i think i used to up in prior fight.
How do other classes get access to their advanced abilities at such low level and i dont even have a basic controlled stun or a snare
