Me and my friend we recently re-subscribed to wow and since the expansion is on the end and there is no point gearing for pve we thought to try something different for fun! We are pve guys for many years now but we wanna try our luck in arena and get some pvp experience.
I play holy paladin and he play enh shaman. We grinded some Bgs and dungeons and got some 522 honor gear and some 522 pve gear with valor. We are also aiming for the 522 pvp weapons and then we are gonna try in arena...Is this team viable? We have lot of experience in pve and we know to play our classes very good although I understand that the pvp is a different philosophy where cc and surviving takes priority.
Also how does rating works? If we keep losing at start, will we match up with other of same personal rating? or it is completely random now that there are no arena teams? Also what would be a good strategy to follow? cc one (healer if there is one) and then my friend try to burst down the other as I keep stun/repentance/interrupt the healer/other team member?
