BM PvP discussion
Return to board index
I have been trying to PvP as BM and I am running in to all the issues I had before. I see that a lot of people are preferring BM in PvP, but I am still have issues with tracking, getting KC off, and my pet is CCed an awful lot, rendering a majority of my attacks useless.
How are people managing to use BM so successfully when you rely on your pet this much? Even on nights when my latency is really good (my connection is hit or miss), I am finding that when I hit KC, for whatever reason, it's not going off.
KC - Your pet charges in to make the attack if it's within a reasonable distance. Pathing and melee range are no longer issues. If you are having trouble with KC in PvP, it is most likely because your pet is CC'd or dead.
CC - Bestial Wrath no longer makes your pet immune to CC. BW now breaks CC on you and your pet. Due to this change, your play style must change. This was the biggest nerf when 5.1 went live. It is usually a good idea to apply pressure, wait for CC, and then pop BW and burst hard. This is often better because it saves your trinket, but the game feels slower because you wait on BW a lot.
CDs - Hold BW after popping Stampede until they CC your pets or their defensive cooldown expires. Note that Rapid Fire gives a substantial PvP Power boost due to your set bonus, and use that when appropriate. RF remains a weak DPS cooldown for PvE, but it is pretty powerful in PvP (assuming you have your set bonus).
Readiness - Readiness resets the cooldown on both Silencing Shot and Intimidation. Against casters, this is a ridiculous amount of CC. Vs melee, you'd use Disengage and Intimidation. Either way, it's incredibly useful when you need an extra edge---easily worth 6-10 seconds of free pain. Don't pop it just to feel badass with some extra burst. Use it on a fight where you really need it.
Yay, someone has a question about
This has everything you need to get the best things needed for BM and Marksmen PvP.
