Today this article is all about tips and tricks I have learned through the years playing Arena . First of all let me start off by saying I am not the best Arena player out their but I can hold my own in ranked matches and I know each and every class really well. Which is very important in pvp actually probably the most important thing. I hope you take away the easier to learn and more basic tricks of arena pvp.
COMMUNICATION – Sometimes voice chat is not needed but I would recommend it. It’s easy to Call out heals that our going out, CC that is going out, CC that is coming in, damage taken, kill opportunities, etc. I cannot stress enough how important it is that you and your teammates communicate with each other. It is hard especially in tough situations for a player to know what every other player is doing this is why communication is vital.
MAPS – Get to know your maps. It might seem sometimes like it doesn’t matter which one your on because you think they all have the same advantages. That’s absolutely not true, Whether your team is melee or ranged line of sight is always crucial for taking enemies out before they have time to react.
Help the Team – Your not just a dpser or a healer your also a CCer and a distraction don’t get tunnel vision on one person. Help the team when the need it.
KEYBINDINGS AND MACROS – Their our tons of ways to do this on your toons I recommend doing Arena with one character at first to get the feel of using them . Look up some of the best ways for your class, and make sure you get familiarized with it before you start Ranked Arenas. Having at least a 8 button mouse will help a lot with setting up very fast reaction time.
Timing – Work on your timing if you go in guns blazing the other team will just try to out last you, and you will be easy targets to take out one by one. Have your cooldowns ready when your enemies make a mistake you have been waiting for. This is were communication comes in, your team can call out when to start ccing and hitting those cooldowns.
In conclusion try not to be afraid of losing. Everyone has a learning curve. In the box below our some more detailed guides with video tutorials.
