Been in-active in pvp and RBG for a while. Which classes and specs are the best FCs in RBG at the moment?
Its a choice between mobility/survival.
Full out mobility -> WW monk
Insane survival -> Demo Lock
Bit of both worlds -> Feral Druid
P.S. In case you didnt notice, tank specs are irrelevant atm
feral druid nothing comes close
also demo lock is not viable they receive the 50% tank damage taken bonus.
Rogues are actually pretty solid flag carriers right now - like Malgru said
Ideally if possible - run 6 DPS, 3 Healers, and one switch - depending on the battleground, it can be advantageous to have 4 healers rather than 7 DPS (like Silvershard). Alternately you never want to be the team short a DPS relatively on BGs like EotS or Gilneas - since getting a first kill in a big battle (EotS mid, or Gilneas WW) can be decisive in an otherwise close/balanced match: having 1 more DPS than your opponent during your respective initial bursts can be a critical advantage.
my group are considering going four healers on ctf map with mw as fc.
Are tanks obsolete now? I'm kind of glad they did away with the required 1 Tank model but it's always a shitty thing to have a gimped spec in anything.
I hope someone finds a niche for tank specs in RBGs.
i vote mistweaver. stuns are useless on them.
You can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish.
Feral druid - easy to pick the flag and transport it to own base. Problem gets bigger when defending against larger number of opponents.
Mistweaver - needs team effort and coordination during picking the flag and moving to own base. But when it is done, it's much easier to avoid damage from attacking team, especially in WSG. The key is teleport of course. We use to have defensive team consisting of MW, lock and (not always) resto druid. All can teleport.
I tried both, druid and mistweaver, and my personal preference is MW. We love to play against team having tank-specced flag carrier, easy win
