Cool Disengage Uses & Abuses

Posted: by Frostheim in PvP, Videos

Some sweet Disengage PvP moves from Zumio. Depending on how you look at it this is either a bunch of sweet uses of Disengage, or this is game abuse and the reason we can’t have nice things. Either way it’s a lot of fun to watch!  

Hunter PvP

Posted: by Frostheim in General, PvP

The WHU and PvP have had a pretty rocky relationship over the years. While I do pvp, I just do it for fun and I don’t feel I’m good enough or a strategic enough pvp thinker to write about it intelligently. I haven’t done serious arenas since BC and my battleground strategy is usually something [...]

Thought I might release something before the arrival of the new expansion, Mists of Pandaria. Another movie is currently in the works, as well as a rogue video, featuring some high rated RPS (Spriest/Rogue(tap)/Rshaman) action. The next movie will consists of more duels against the top players of Saurfang, and 2v2 and 3v3 arena. Hope [...]

This week I’ll be bringing to you two Skillcapped videos to your attention, both of which are free to view. Tosan’s How To Use Traps. Tosan’s Tips and Tricks. These two will probably be the last Skillcapped videos I link. They’re both done by a magnificent hunter and are well worth the watch. I would [...]

Hello once again my fellow readers of WHU! It’s been a while since I’ve roamed around this site. I was starting to forget what delicious mage tears tasted like. I’ve been struggling with my… Hunter urges for some time, and the call to PvP of season 11 has brought me back… It’s like out there [...]

Rated Battleground Class Balance

Posted: by Frostheim in PvP

MMO-Champion has an interesting post on rated battleground balance, in which they look at the average win percentage for each class with different minimum gear levels. Unsurprisingly for anyone familiar with the state of Cataclysm hunter pvp, hunters have the lowest win percentage of any class in every minimum gear level examined. What I found [...]

Hunter 5v5 Arena

Posted: by Frostheim in PvP

Reader Yamajii sent in this fun video of an all hunter 5v5 arena team. It looks like they only played 7 games with the all hunter team just for fun (won 5 of 7) so this doesn’t mean this is a viable team with so little games played, but whether or not they’re competitively viable, [...]
