    Your arena partner and why?

    As a Retri Pala im going with a Rogue for the huge burst damage. Stun lock someone and nuke em down. Don't really need a healer as our heals are pretty good as it is as retri spec and should only need the odd heal now and then if all goes tits up.

    What class will you have for your arena partner and why?

    I'll be doing arenas on my Ret Paladin with my friend's Dreamstate Druid.

    Then, my Resto Shaman will 2v2 with his MS Warrior.

    It'll be fun leveling together when we always have a tank and a healer as well. ;D

    Anywho, as a ret, i play with a rogue, due to great burst, and great CC in repentance, blind, sap, KS and all that good stuff....its a great combo, just all about timing, and a lot of fun to play.

    Games are over in like a minute
    I think you'd be surprised how many people have always wanted to play a Ret Paladin but were so garbage that they had to respec/reroll. Now that Ret is going to be a viable spec you'll see a lot more Ret around.

    I am quitting playing my holy. I have been trying arena today but...god damn, there is nothing I can do. Either I get hit by 5 instant cast pyroblasts and die, or I get feared/silenced/stunned and I am again dead.

    I've never once been holy or prot for any period longer than to see how cool my offset gear is.

    I do 2's with a rogue because he has everything I lack for pvp.

    LOL you lie! ret doesnt work!

    In wrath, if I decide to do 2's it will almost undoubtably be a rogue.

    Whatever class my friends decide to lvl :P. I have more fun playing with friends than competing at a high level, plus its more fun for me trying to make a unpopular comp work.

    The most fun I've ever had in an arena was during Season 2.

    I borrowed a friend's Warlock and went into 2v2s alone. First, I would Life Tap until I was nearly dead. Then, I would run out and die instantly. I got down to a ~900 rating.

    After that, I put my Paladin on the team. It was fairly amusing soloing 2v2 teams in those brackets.

    Re: Your arena partner and why?

    Lol, now that's just mean. Despite that fact, it's still one of the best ideas I've heard recently. I've heard of people intentionally getting low, but not going in and solo'ing teams. Wish I woulda done that before they changed how ratings worked :P.

    Re: Your arena partner and why?

    A friend and I are going Ret Pally / Enhance Shaman 2's. I forsee it being the new "Druid/Warrior ezmode" combo. Double DPS. Double healer (spellpower ftw). Both have CC (Hex/Repent/HoJ). Neither CAN be CC'd (HoSac/Cleanse/Bubble). Both can remove snares (Earthbind/HoF). Shaman provides snares / interrupts for the Pally, Pally provides extra defense for the Shaman.

    Stroooooong god damned combo.

    Re: Your arena partner and why?

    I'm a hunter and my partner is a fire mage.

    I chose him because nobody wants to do with arena with a hunter.

    Re: Your arena partner and why?

    its ret + caster or you've got a wasted bop. i roll with a mage who swaps specs all the time, usually works best with pom itd seem.

    and plate

    and no oom-ness

    and all melee spell damage.


    I hereby patent this 2's team setup, and require 50 euros per team made with the setup.
    You're generous, Ret/UH might be the ultimate 2 dps.

    Amen to that I personally leveled ret, geared ret, put up with all the bitching and pvp'd and raided ret all the way to BT and Hyjal, and the most I ever respecced for was friends sayin we rlly need a tank or healer so I threw on the off spec gear specced it ran it and respecced.
    Neway that isn't the point to this forum at 70 I would actually do 2s with another ret pally when this next patch comes out(currently resto shammy for the wf totem and respectable heals) cuz they have good armor, self sustained healing, and can cc but at level 80 I am still not sure cuz I know a lot of things are different.
