Starting Arena – guide rec

Okay this is a double rec – but I reckon this is one of the best Arena PVP guides I have ever gotten my hands on about starting arenas: WoWcast episode 34 (and 33 but I would start with ep 34.)

What was good? well:

  • Points out that 3v3 is the way to go for starting groups
  • Outlines what you can expect from beginning fights
  • Explores group dynamics
  • Mentions LOS (pillar humping in ep 33)
  • Mentions recommended addons
  • Speaks about the importance of /assist and group strategy
  • Speaks of focus macros
  • Speaks of switching targets
  • Speaks of macros and key bindings
  • Speaks of the importance of drinking and guerrilla warfare
  • Gives you some strategies to start practicing as a group
  • Looks at the different seasons

…& thats just part of the discussion.

Better yet the podcast has been done by someone who really enjoys BGs and PVP – it’s a nice and positive take on it and pretty encouraging despite the acknowledgement that season four will be a tough season. The website also has a nice number of arena videos to compliment. This be a damn nice starter guide and you can listen to it while killing mobs for primals :p.
