Technically PVP Show Notes

 

Episode 78 - Fury Warrior 8.1.5

 

12:00 - Upcoming WoW PVP Events

 

24:34 - Subject of Analysis

Today we will discuss, Fury Warriors.

 

Talents

  • War Machine vs Endless Rage vs Fresh Meat
    • Endless Rage (situationally Fresh Meat against RM or if you are having trouble surviving)
  • Double Time vs Impending Victory vs Storm Bolt
    • Stormbolt - Due to Furys mobility with Thirst for battle I never take double charge though some warriors play this talent into certain comps.
  • Inner Rage vs Sudden Death vs Furious Slash
    • Sudden Death (execute procs hit for a lot of damage)
  • Furious Charge vs Bounding Stride vs Warpaint
    • Warpaint (situationally Furious Charge which synergizes with fresh meat to make your bloodthirst heal for a lot)
  • Carnage vs Massacre vs Frothing Beserker
    • Carnage
  • Meat Cleaver vs Dragon Roar vs Bladestorm
    • Dragon Roar (this is the most burst, but situationally will take bladestorm against RM or other comps that can root)
  • Reckless Abandon vs Anger Management vs Siegebreaker
    • Siegebreaker

PVP Talents

  • Most comps you will want Gladiator’s Medallion, however you can play relentless into CC heavy teams where you are not afraid of dying (i.e. God comp)
  • Thirst for battle - This talent gives fury all it’s mobility and is why I enjoy the fury playstyle. Clears all snares (such as chains of ice) and increases movement speed by 15% for 2 sec.
  • Battle trance - Two raging blows on the same target in a row will give you battle trance which gives self healing + slight increase rage regen.
  • Master and Commander - Additional 15% from rally and lowers CD from 3min to 1 min (I usually take this over battle trance in comps that kill in high burst goes such as Rogue Mage, or a comp that never goes me and I need to help my partners suive)
  • Spell Reflect - Due to sinister gladiators maledict I almost always take this talent now.
  • Enduring Rage -  Increases the duration of your enrage, it is good for extra damage but I often don’t play this since the other talents are so important. Could consider replacing battle trance for this in some matchups.
  • Disarm - Could sometimes be useful but I think the other talents are more important.

I was standing right in front of the flag so I couldn’t miss him. This must be a bug! “

  • Dev Q&As

      • Why aren't there more currencies and vendors for gear, similar to buying Azerite? A: It's not something they've completely moved away from; there's a place for loot you get randomly from a boss, and for guaranteed progression from other sources. Titanite Residuum helps, but they could probably do more for the raid and dungeons, while Conquest serves that purpose for PvP, allowing you to work toward guaranteed rewards which complement end of match and weekly chest loot.
      • Seeing as the War Mode bonus has been at 30% for the Alliance, does this team feel like this has been a failure at balancing? A:They wouldn't be surprised to see it tick down to 25% for the Alliance. They've seen it very effective for the underrepresented faction and they feel this is a success as the faction imbalance is half of what is was.
      • What is being done about server stability and lag?  A:It's a top priority. But it's not a single problem and it's death by a thousand cuts. They've fixed some problems but they're still investigating and its an ongoing process. Specific reports help, especially with time stamps so that the engineers can look at the logs.
      • Can PvP please get some sort of vendor?  A:The way vendors worked out in the past, there was an order in which you bought pieces off the vendor. But they understand there is a value in the vendor of Control. The system that they're creating that is more transparent and offers those choice. One of the things they're improving is a choice of 4 Azerite Pieces in Season 2, so that every trait occurs at least once. When you cap your Conquest, you also get a Quartermaster's Coin which allows you to upgrade those pieces in the long term. Certain weeks you'll be able to choose between say 2 Bracers and 2 Pants with different stats. You can pick the best one for you and then upgrade it in the long term with a Trophy bought form a Quartermaster's Coin.  In the past, when they had vendors, they had PvP stats like PvP Power and Resilience and because that doesn't exist anymore they need to take into account the rest of the game. There's no such thing as a Raid Vendor and PvP already offers a lot of control. PvP currently offers the most selection as to what piece of gear you want.

1:39:40 - Trivia question

Previous episode question was: What was spell-batching and why did it matter to PVP? A: Spell batching was how WOW used to process abilities.  They were processed in batches or stacks by the servers, so if spells were cast close enough in real time, they would happen simultaneously by server time.

    • Their review says, “This podcast is great and one of the best for player versus player.  I would have given this a five star rating easy a few months ago. However, lately the main host seems like he is miserable discussing WOW PVP lately. I haven’t been able to listen for long as it doesn’t seem like his heart is in it anymore.  Anyway, keep up the good work and I’ll check back in 2019 and re-review.”
