World of Warcraft is the most popular and one of the oldest MMORPGs in the world. This is the videogame that sets the standard for this genre. It was first released in 2004 and since then, it has had seven expansions excluding the latest one, Shadowlands that still has not been released. Over the years, or those 16 years, World of Warcraft has seen hundreds of millions of different players. With a game so old, it can be very difficult to battle in PVP arenas with hardcore, veteran players.
However, these users are not immortal and can be beaten in their own game too. Do not think that you cannot reach the same level of skill as those older players. With enough game time and enough experience, I believe that you can become a true PVP legend.
You will need to invest a lot of your free time and a lot of effort if you want to reach that level. You will need to frequent the arenas and you also have to go to raids and dungeons to ensure that you have the right here to fight against other users in World of Warcraft. To speed up this process of learning, I decided to write this article and give you all the tips I could find for improving your PVP skills in WoW.
Have fun and relax
This is probably one of the most important things I can tell you about player versus player arenas. I think that this applies to almost every game. The point is that you need to stay relaxed always to just have fun while gaming. I know, at times, arenas can be very frustrating and certain classes can feel very unfair, but once you get used to all those unbalanced characters, you can start having a lot more fun.
I imagine that you do not have a lot of experience on this side of the World of Warcraft. So, I do not really think there is a reason to become frustrated. This is a brand-new experience for you, so why not enjoy it?
Understand the fact that you will probably be more than a thousand times in a PVP Arena in the next few months or even weeks. Getting angry at all those matches will only bring disadvantages.
If you want to stay focused, if you want to be good, you will need to stay calm and relaxed. You should never let your emotions control you.
Get the proper gear
Entering the PVP world without the right equipment is not a good idea. Even if you sent the best players in the world to fight against an average user with good equipment will end up losing. In other words, there really is no point in fighting other players if you do not have the right gear.
To obtain the proper gear and to reach the right level, you will need to grind a lot more in dungeons and raids. I know, raids can be very boring sometimes in comparison to PVP, but this is simply how the game works. Although, there is always the option of paying for boosting services. With these services, your character will be equipped with the best PVP gear possible in a very short amount of time. If you are interested in all the different boosting methods and prices, you should probably do some research first to learn more about this subject.
After you pay for the boost and you have your gear, you can start fighting against other users and showing them the power of your well-equipped character.
Change your keybind layout
It seems like a lot of people have still not figure out that you simply cannot play PVP with the same key binds as PVE. You will probably have to make some readjustments for your toolbar and you also need to change some keybinds. Yes, I know that it can be very difficult to change your keyboard habits, but if you want to get good at this game, you will probably have to do that.
Keep in mind, if you do not feel like making changes to your keyboard commands, you could also get a mouse with multiple buttons. Right now, the most popular option for most World of Warcraft players is the Razer Naga. Simply because it has around 12 buttons on the side which you can edit them in any way you want.
Do not forget about macros
If you think that the best PVP legends in World of Warcraft press every single button by themselves, you are very wrong. Almost every experienced PVP player in World of Warcraft has at least a dozen macros ready.
Keep in mind that most macros are not arena specific, they are usually specific to certain classes. So, if you make your change from a hunter to a warlock, you will have to completely change your macros.
However, setting them up is quite easy. Most of the time, you can easily find any kind of macro online. All you have to do is just copy and paste. That is about it.
Find a team
Playing solo can be definitely beneficial. That is probably why thousands of people are gathering around Orgrimmar and dueling for hours and hours. But, if you want to spend your time learning more efficiently, I suggest finding a proper team for PVP arenas. You can either ask your friends whether any of them are willing to help you learn more about PVP in WoW or you could ask around different forms on the Internet. The community of World of Warcraft is huge, so I imagine that you will not have any kind of trouble finding experienced players that will be willing to help you.
Once you start regularly doing arenas with your new team, I am sure that your skill will grow considerably during that time.
I hope that these several tips will be more than enough to guide you in the right direction and to help you master the skills of PVP in World of Warcraft.
