This is my sixth World of Warcraft Druid PvP Video, and the second since the launch of the expansion.
I highly suggest downloading the high quality commentary version. This movie was edited to fit the commentary and non commentary versions may seem slower paced as a result.
There are three versions available:
2) Non Commentary (final cut of the video)
3) Alternate Non Commentary (early cut of the video)
The commentary gets slightly odd sounding at points where my mic was clipping my voice slightly, so if it suddenly sounds like I have a lisp or something - that'd be why. Also note that two fights in the video were recorded at half size, so that's the reason why they look a little fuzzy. In addition there is an alternate version without commentary available, which is an old cut and features one fight not in the final version.
This movie features my highly rated (2400+) 2v2 balance druid/ShS rogue team (clips 1900-2300), 5v5 4dps content (2100ish), and a pinch of 3v3 3dps content (2100ish). The footage is mostly from our climb to our current rating and thus features opponents from the 1900 to 2300 range. As far as I know we are one of the highest, if not the highest, pure balance/rogue team in the world.
As with my last movie, "Back to Basics: Double Druid Gambit," I have chosen a mix of fights where we make mistakes as well as our opponents. The result is hopefully an enlightening experience of what arena is like as a pure balance druid. Unlike Double Druid Gambit, the clips in this movie are not necessarily in chronological order - so noticing the differences in our gameplay will be a bit more difficult. The video is even outdated at this point; since we have progressed into the 2400+ bracket we have improved considerably.
If you ever catch yourself thinking "He should have done xxx instead," imagine how we feel when that realization comes to us! Arena is about learning from your mistakes and predicting your opponents actions, and hopefully this video will be useful in addition to providing entertainment, which is its primary goal.
