Not a great arena player by any stretch but just wondering what happened when a non-geared monk beat us in 2s 1 v 2.
My team resto druid boomkin. Resto is geared with upgraded malevs 3 Tyr pieces and Tyr weapons. 68% resil. Boom is in honor malev/tyr gear with Tyr weapon.
His team WW monk. he has 2k exp in 2s from a few years ago. His gear equal to the boomkin.
Match took a while and this guy never went below 80% HP with the boomkin dotting him up, blowing cooldowns and laying into him for 6 million damage and me also dpsing him for a few hundred thousand. Somehow this DP class healed himself through all that damage all the while putting out over 16 million damage and incredible pressure.
He was never in danger of dying. When he was not controlled with cc he would immediately take my boomkin down to under 20%. I have never had an opponent put that much DPS pressure on my partner in 2s, not even fully geared T2 hero of the horde warriors and DKs.
I could not drink if I stopped healing for even 5 seconds he would have killed my partner who has about 66% resil and knows how to stay alive when under pressure and I am controlled.
Monk got a kill when I went oom and stopped to drink. Blew the boomkin up through barkskin with full hots running etc in probably 7 seconds. WTF?
After drinking I had full mana and I can generally torture players 1 on 1 with my ability to run away and heal myself. Not this guy. He got on me and blew me up in about 15 seconds through tree form with all cooldowns up and running.
Was it a glitch? Was he hacking/cheating? Is he simply the greatest player I have ever run into in 2s (even though his best rating is 2k)? Heck I fought fully BIS geared 2700 players who were carrying someone through 2s and had an easier time keeping my partner up than in this match.
I do not play a monk but I honestly did not think there was any 1 player in WoW who could beat my 2s team focusing on my dps partner while letting me free cast heals. I could see a great player controlling me and blowing up my partner while I was cc'd, but this guy just flat out brute forced us. What the heck can monks do to heal themselves through 6 million damage? And how hard should fist of fury hit on 68% resil?
Just looking for the why. Any insight appreciated.
