For instance: MS Warrior vs Warlock, the MS warrior will win 99% of the time, that last 1% is when the MS warrior is AFK or retarded to the point that they're trying to come at you with a fishing pole
Warlocks survive off 3 things: Fear, drain-tanking and high stamina
Warriors have many fear breaks and even more skills that make them immune to fear to begin with, MS reduces the healing you get by 50% so drain tanking is nearly nullified completely, and the high stamina counts for nothing vs a melee class while wearing cloth.
Warlocks survive off of SL/SL spec to mitigate damage, and heal back through damage. Warlocks only have 1 true enemy, thats a sub-swords rogue. They get royally flushed by them.
If u get a similar geared warrior vs an SL/SL spec lock the lock will win..... They have alot of dps and mitigation, not to mention the heal back they get through talents in aff. The lock still has DC.....beserker doesnt last all the time and warriors can still be feared reliably. If u are to be good in pvp u need to be intimate with the all the viable pvp specs of other classes, their cds, burst indicators/potential set ups, and that kind of stuffzz.
Mortal strike isnt that much of an issue to locks, healing is healing and still works as a form of mitigation from sustained white and burst yellow.
Fuck 5v5 comps btw, 3v3 is all up n this. Its the same as when u go to game tournies for fighting games. There are characters who perform better against other characters, and chars who are just higher tier overall. The point is, in competitive wow, u can switch up comps in your 3s team to win against a mirror match or just an anti-comp.
