This is Serennia from Tichondrius server on BG9 Bloodlust. I transferred from BG1 Reckoning on Frostmane server, where I was relatively unknown, yet holding the top ranked 2v2 team in the battlegroup at the time all of season 2. There wasn't much of a supporting cast available for the other brackets on the battlegroup, and even still, we did well in both season one and two there. Coming to Tichondrius and playing on the most competitive battlegroup has been game-changing for me, and I definitely never regret the move. It has taught me a lot about the upper levels of competition, pitting me against some of the best players and teams the game has to offer. Never did I fully understand the meaning of "warrior gib" until I played on bg9.
With that being said, I will be the first one to say that arena is not a solo competition, no one individual can carry a team, and I certainly don't consider myself the "best warrior in the game." Warrior isn't the most complex class to play, although I feel there are many aspects of playing one that can seperate a good one from a great one. That isn't to say that I don't play with some of the best teammates I could possibly ask for, however. I've also learned and adapted to countless things after making the move to this battlegroup, where the competition is much more stiff. I make mistakes just like anyone else, our teams lose just like any other, we have team drama just like other teams, and we ocasionally tank ratings just like any other team because we're not perfect. But we never stay down; we get back up and keep on fighting.
All of arena season one and season two, I've used a 33/28/0 talent spec, as seen here: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=LV0xdGbqMbzbZE0zuMxRc
I much prefer flurry over tactical mastery in all brackets for a variety of reasons, although my spec for season 3 is yet to be determined.
This video was meant to be short and sweet, without any long, drawn-out fights to bore anyone. For that reason, I left out 2v2 matches, as warrior/druid isn't exactly the most appealing comp to watch, considering it's made to outlast. With that in mind, this video does include:
My only regret in making this video was not truncating my spell alert mods before the recordings took place, so it tends to get a bit spammy in 5v5. I eventually fixed it, but not in time for this, so I'll apologize for that in advance.
Finally, I would like to do some shout outs to my teammates, whom I feel deserve as much credit as I do for the success of our arena teams:
Spoh - Known you forever. I feel it was some twist of fate to re-unite us on Tich and not just coincedental. Hope you don't go anywhere for S3.
Kasj - I'll never fully understand your abstract personalities but your skill and knowledge is undeniable.
Brazetina (aka Rafterman) - Known you a long time, had plenty of our drama and always stuck it out. Best priest I've played with.
Azazael - I never thought playing a warlock in arena took any sort of modicum of skill until I played with you. It's like night and day with other warlocks.
Kollektiv - Amazing shaman that covers my ass when I miss mana burn pummels, lawl. Wouldn't trade him for anyone.
Kurlanz - Pretty much terrible and carried by racials and PvE gear. In all seriousness though, awesome paladin that doesn't get enough credit as he should.
That's pretty much it. I put a lot of time in compiling the footage to this video, and Albis from Darkspear server put a tremendous amount of effort editting this together for me (whom I owe an unending debt of gratitude for his effort and patience; all editting compliments/inquiries should be directed toward him, as well). Hopefully this project was worth the time we both put into it, and people will enjoy it. All comments and feedback, positive or otherwise, are always welcome.
