So i have played wow for many a year, and have quit and been clean for about 18 months now. do i dare come back? I dont have a lot of time, but i do say i miss pummeling scrubs in the arena. Is pvp any good at the moment? my friend was trying to tell me they have really "dumbed it down" and their is just so little skill to classes now.
looking for your thoughts an opinions. I'm really asking for anything 1800+.
A few things changed, most are still the same when it comes to PvP. What changed is that top-tier PvP gear is now a lot easier to get then it was before. Up to 1600 or so you will meet all sorts of random teams made up just for the 5 wins it takes to reach the conquest points weekly cap, so it's a walk through la-la land. Once out of that everything is the same as before, the pillars are still there for people to abuse, the OP combos are still there ...
Also new are the rated BGs, which in my experience show clearly that WoW mechanics are not designed for large scale PvP. If you play certain classes/specs you will be assist-trained on sight and there is little you or your healers can do about it.
If you managed to get away from WoW I wouldn't advice coming back for PvP alone, it's the same old shit just with larger health pools.
