Well, I didn't know it was released. No surprise there for any of you I guess. :P Can't see myself playing till BC, considering I couldn't care less for a tower with a flag on top.

Well, what are cross-realm BGs like then?

Probably why we will still lose with Shamans on our side in BC, because they will have Paladins anyway. Our lack of anything at all will get us killed anyway.

Paladins are just more annoying than deadly - at least in AV. "Oh noes! Someone's coming to attack me!" < bubble-hearth >

Yes I've done it a few times in order to save my skin from stupid unwinnable battles such as 30 on 5 guarding SH GY.

Heh, lucky pimp.

I only managed to save myself from certain death once.
Level 52, attacked Taurajo. Saw a 60 orc shaman coming to answer the newb cries for help, so I Shadowmelded. I watched this huge tauren mother walk around, play with some smelting skills, and ride off. I killed the guy who probably reported me, mounted up and left.
Scarriest moment of my playing time, hide and seek with horrible possible outcome...
Only time EVER that Shadowmeld worked. Think they've nerfed it since that time.

What I'm talking about is stuff like this (I mainly did AV on my Orc Warrior):

Fighting upside the hill at Snowfall GY. I target a Paladin and use charge. Paladin bubbles, then uses Stormpike thingy to hearth to base. This in the midst of like 30 other players.

-_-

I mean if you are outnumbered that is one thing. I do that too on my Rogue (Vanish + get away + hearth). But in a fair fight, it's kind of rediculous :P

1.12 killed my server, everyone is complaining about immense lag.
I've always lagged like hell, which is one of the main reasons I stopped playing, but everyone else complaining about lag?
Must be the depths of infernal hell.

Investigated and I was right, DCed about 10 times first 10 minutes, then couldn't enter the world with my char and gave up.

Gwahahaha, it used to be more useful when you could cast it indoors. Having someone escape like that is just so funny, and sometimes they would even chase the player down way back in the first AV.

The simply best thing to do in AV is to mega-aoe, period. Nothing beats seeing like 50 damage indicators on your screen at the same time.

When the only aoe you can do is the worst one in the game, you tend to avoid using it.

Ride to enemy, unmount, PoM+Fireblast, Frostnova, Blastwave, AE, AE, AE....

Thats a pretty good strategy.

I'm quite sure a Hunter's Volley AoE is the worst in the game. It's just totally useless that it doesn't even kill crappy Elwynn mobs.

Consecration (Rank 5)
565 Mana
Instant cast 8 sec cooldown
Consecrates the land beneath Paladin, doing 384 Holy damage over 8 sec to enemies who enter the area.

VS

Volley (Rank 3)
490 Mana 8-35 yd range
Channeled 1 min cooldown
Requires Ranged Weapon
Continuously fires a volley of ammo at the target area, causing 80 Arcane damage to enemy targets within 8 yards every second for 6 sec.

Volley does more damage, for less mana, at range.

Consecration has a lower cooldown, and is instant.

Interrupt, Slow, whatever. The Thing that makes your Casting Bar go backwards.

Of which the Paladin has 0 of, unless you count Holy Shock a 31 point talent, or Judgeing Righteousness or Command which is a ten second cooldown for less then 200 damage.
