TLDR: will locks provide me a good challenge for small scale arenas and BG's? (class forever screwed =/= challenge)
Let me start off by saying I do NOT enjoy playing any class/spec that is fotm. I run mostly 2v2 arena w/ my bro, sometimes 3v3 with a friend.
Have a druid, was resto only during s1, then feral/moonkin for the rest of the seasons. Was a good challenge.
Have a shaman, ran him enhance for the last season. Only broke 1750 but started late in the season.
Got a pally up to 70, then bliz buffed the crap out of them. I do not enjoy playing a pally now, its too ez-mode.
I could easily run boomkin, feral, resto sham, ret or holy pally with my brother's DK (or priest), but c'mon that's just retarded right now. Screw fotm, my bro and I enjoy a challenge. That said, its not really a challenge if there is no hope (i.e. elem sham in 2's).
Right now I'm stuck choosing between enhance sham and rolling a lock. I love classes that have tons of tools, and that have a high skill cap.
I have to believe bliz will fix this arena crap, or that they are magically right and full pvp gear will solve the problem (heh). I do not believe that bliz will let an entire class languish in the arena cespool its in now. I knew they wouldn't fix elem or enhance in past seasons because they had a viable spec (resto). Locks don't right now it seems, so I have to believe something will get changed.
Anyway, will locks provide me a good (not impossible) challenge for small scale arenas and BG's?
