LOLRENER

Oh man, was last night awesome or what? We hadn’t jumped into the arena this week (reset was Tuesday) and finally we were both available to rape some faces.

Our first match was against a Holy Pally and a Frost Mage. I sapped the pally, we raped the mage/interrupted the pally, and voila, easy win. Mage only did 16k damage and pally healed for 100k.

The second match was against two Shamans. I think they were both “Windfury” spec which is I think Enhancement? This fight started off as a big clusterfuck. Once the shammies both dropped all of their totems, had their big cow asses everywhere with their big flags in the shit, and mix us in there as well which lead to neither of us being able to tell wtf was going on. So we moved away from their totems (after I used cheap shot on one! YEAH FUCK YOU TOTEM) and toward the boxes. This was in the Dalaran Sewers arena. They were going for my friend who was now doing laps around the box and I was too far behind to get to one of the shams so I sprinted and then realized I could just turn around and go the other way, so I did that too. My friend also decided to turn around to let me catch up lol so we were just havin a fun ring around the rosey party. I caught up to one of the shamans and stunned him, I was laying into him and my friend came back around to join. He was low, he ran away and I chased as my friend fought the other. We dropped the first, my friend was real low so I blinded the shaman, he trinketed before I could get in range to stun lock and finished my friend off. I ran him down eventually and ended him.

The third match was against an Arms Warrior and a Shadow Priest. I sapped the Warrior who didn’t charge when he should have and ruined my chance to sap him. We focused on the priest, I fell off like a dumbass, my friend stayed on them. I caught back up and we laid into the Priest pretty easily. After that we went to the warrior and got him to half HP when he started to run. I did a Deadly Throw (throwing finishing move that slows them) and the scoreboard popped up. Apparently the warrior typed /afk to leave lol. Victory!

The fourth match we have trouble remembering. We are pretty sure it was a Frost Mage and either a Rogue, Feral Druid, or Warrior. Part of me thinks it was a Feral Druid because I kinda remember sapping him (though that could be a memory from another match a week or two ago). Anyways, we won!

The fifth match was the closest of them all. We were against an Enhancement Shaman and a Rogue. I couldn’t find the rogue and we both realized, pretty much no matter what the stealthed guy is, we’re going shaman first, which is what we did. When the rogue came into play I either blinded him or my friend warrior feared him. These guys were quite the handful and before we killed the shaman, my friend died 😦 I was able to finish the shaman off and then it was rogue v rogue. He had full HP (112k) and I had around 80k. I tried to disarm but he dodged it. I popped my evade and I think I tried to disarm him a couple more times out of habit. I wasn’t hitting him and shit was not good. I had around 20k HP with him at 80k and that’s when I was like, we’re fuckin 4-0, I do not want to lose this one. I vanished, cheap shotted him, and started doing my thing. I wasn’t watching our health pools, I was watching my hotbar, hitting those goddamn buttons! The scoreboard popped up and my friend was cheering in vent, I didn’t even know I had killed him, but I had. That was definitely my best feeling yet in Arena and it is some great fuel to keep me chuggin along.

I think we’re going to try a few more today even though we’ve capped our CP for the week. Once you get over 1500 rating your cap starts to increase gradually up to a max of around 3k (we currently cap at 1343).

Good times.

edit– Whoops forgot a link to our 2v2 team page.

So my 2v2 team was doing okay in good ol reners there, you know, not quite 1:1 ratio but close, we had made it over 1k rating and we only played 2 days so we felt good. A little too good apparently. One night I was drunk and we were winning in arenas and started chatting up /g chat about how we’re winning. Well a guildy mentions that he’d like to rener sometime, so I was like, shit, join our team! He is a rogue, just like me! Needless to say the next day when him and I stepped into the reners, we went 0-3, and of course then he had some family thing to tend to (lolright). I didn’t take any offense because it’s half expected at that point lol, personally I can just keep doing it over and over and I bet eventually I’d break 1:1 but that’s just how I do every game.

Well that guildy hasn’t returned to the arena, at least 2v2 with our team, since. Tuesday was CP reset day so me and my buddy jumped in with the good ol Warrior/Rogue combo. We won our first one, lost our 2nd, and won our 3rd. On the third one we had eliminated one of their players and then my buddy died right after that which meant me with full hp vs. a druid with full hp. Well, I won and only took 3k damage lol. I was left standing 102k/105k hp, man it felt great. After that second win we lost 7 in a row. Talk about shitty lol. We called it a night rener-wise.

Recently I’ve been feeling weak as shit on my rogue, its frustrating at times when you put everything you have into killing one guy and then he just kinda sits there at 10% while youre mashing buttons and it doesn’t seem like anythings happening and then you lose. I’ve almost got 3k resilience which I think now is more of the “good norm” with 3.5k+ being the “good good”. I’ve not capped CP yet for this week but I did spend the first points I got on my Ranged slot, ilvl 359 ranged weapon ftw! PURPOLZ ARE COO-EWLZ!

Last night we decided to step back into the arena to give it another go. We first fought a Rogue/Feral Druid combo, both starting stealthed. We were able to kick their little butts perdy good. I saw the rogue while he was stealthed and sapped him which meant we were now going to double team rape him since he was the first guy we could see, plus Mr Feral druid wasn’t about to heal anyone lol, that would be dumb! After that match we were up against a DK and a Rogue. Again I was able to sap the rogue like the newb he is and we double teamed the DK. We ended up both of us switching targets a few times during this fight, we were all over the road, and we both got close to dying. We killed the Rogue first and focused on the DK, my friend had to run away to live so the DK focused on me, then I had to run away to live and my friend came back to whack him. I came back for another stab or two and the DK focused his attention on me again. I was under 10k hp and damn was this going to be close! But, we got him, before either of us died. That was it for last night, quit while you’re ahead and all.

It’s more fun spreading your rener out across the week, but I still love knockin it all out at once like a champ.
