Cookie Cutter comps

Permalink Closed

What's the general idea of what most people are rolling? Might be a bit early in the season, but we can start putting together a thread with info on it.

I've never been fond of overly defensive comps. I'd much rather run something DPS heavy. Not that I'm up for FOTM or cheese comps, but meh... :x

You said cookie cutter, I just put the 'best' options for each in there (imo).

 

Balance Shadow would be alright, just a little inferior imo. Not by leagues or anything.

 

Edit: ofc I think hybrids of either class are probably better than pure Balance, but that's largely opinion. Too much utility in Telekinetics and Infil to not do it imo.

I know, I was just qqing. Also, stealth makes it a good contendor I think... Ive seen some teams use a Balance Shadow properly and wield good results.

I don't think they're bad at all and I could definitely see carving a niche for them in a team.

 

I think that's one thing we need to consider more - team synergy. Each person we put into a rated group should have a purpose for being there, more than just "We need healz" or "We need a tank".

On Drooga's Pleasure Barge, from my experience seems the most effective comp seems to be

1 jugg/guardian tank

1 23/1/17 or 31/0/10 sin offtank (dps gear)

2 pyro pts/vanguards

1 mara/sent

2 hybrid sorc/sage healers (21/20)

1 op/scoundrel healer

Variations usually involve swapping out the op/scoundrel healer for a BH/Comm healer or another hybrid sorc/sage.  My guild swaps out one PT/Vang for a sniper/GS. Right now, hybrid sorcs/sages are really strong as they can put up strong heals with good utility/survivability while being able to dps well on the side. PT/vang for obvious reasons, mara as well, sin tank just for the utility and a 2nd guard. Jugg/guard tank simply because they're the best right now.

I still believe that every group needs at least one stealth.

I think Shadows are probably being a bit underrated right now - mostly due to the nerfs they just received (that's the general reaction to a nerf - assume they're now below average). Shadows still bring a lot to a team.

 

I think a KC as a node-holder is about as good of an investment as you can get for a single slot on a team. I wouldn't consider them 'cookie-cutter', but they're really good.
