    On a differing perspective, I deem this true twinking. Pwning levelers of all breeds.

    I'll concede on that note.

    appreciate the feedback so far guys, thanks to some of you, i now have holy shock and bestow faith as large icons near my portrait, this has improved my effectiveness a lot, as you can imagine now that i cast both of them off CD.

    yes, this build only works against about 80% of players in this bracket (95% of levelers and about 50% of twinks), but it may be the most effective solo-queue build.

    you built it specifically to not die and to hold/take nodes yet you died an average amount of times relative to your team, didnt take a node and failed to defend one.

    You did 10k dmg and 47k healing, 46k of which was on yourself.

    Even by your own skewed metrics, it wasnt particularly effective.

    somehow you think I posted the best game of my life? i was being very clear about my suboptimal play in that BG.

    also your math is off

    1, i died twice that game, so that accounts for 9k damage taken that was not healed.

    2, runeblade healing is not recorded.

    so i only healed myself about 30k: 28k healing + 9k runeblade + 9k for two deaths, that's 46k damage taken.

    so i healed my teammates for about 18~20k (47-28)

    anyways, my healing has been around 80~100k per game lately.

    To be fair you can't account for all of the runeblade's healing during the duration of the total bg to your total healing as some would count as overhealing since you were/are already at full hp. Overhealing doesn't count as healing, that's just not how healing works unfortunately.

    i agree with you, which is why i am already being conservative, the 9k from runeblade i am assuming represents less than 5 min of passive regen, out of a 10 min game. anyways, i think we are getting side-tracked here a bit...

    Interesting video, I have disagreed with your gearing choices in the past, but you seem like a cool guy and as long as you are having fun on the game nothing else really matters. Nice video buddy.

    Thanks for all the encouragement, I have updated OP with episode 2 where I go over how to make gold and also showcased a really close AB where I did my thing.

    Thanks for posting the videos!

    I will be honest, I don't think the build is effective. I see where you are coming from with your logic of distracting people so that they waste time trying to kill you (slowly) instead of killing others or taking objectives (fast). I agree that this kind of worked in the video. But I think there are serious limits to it. Essentially, it only works vs levelers, because they don't do damage and are taken by surprise by you distracting them. It won't work vs twinks, they will just shut you down if they can do this quickly (hunter / warlock / mage + rogue / paladin / anything with a stun will do this easily), and, more importantly, if they ever find that they cannot, they will move to do something more productive. Any twink that will be successfully duped by you once won't be duped again. Sooner or later most of the twinks will just recognize your character and will know what to do with you.

    But vs levelers, the build will still work. So, if you find it fun, why not.

    I'm very confused as to why all these fotm min max plebs are hating on someone else's gear choice and playstyle choice glance is there to have fun with a build he enjoys it's not your char so stop whining like a bitch log off your survival hunter n find some friends

    Not yet, but I will for sure.

    (Also, fwiw, I found your accent just fine, was able to understand everything you said with no effort at all. :))

    Its not the "this build is fun and enjoyable to me because I like this particular gimmick/playstyle/aesthetic" people find bothersome. Its the "this is the best solo que build in the bracket" thing people take issue with.

    He said "it may be the best" that means it's his opinion and for him it might be the best build he's experienced whilst playing holy pala, also I think he was referring to the best build for self sustaining against 2 or more attackers. By no means is it the most effective solo queue build for healing or for holy tanking but for him its the most effective build he can play

    Im not going to argue with you about what someone else means when its apparent you maybe missed the past several months of context.

    You're not "arguing" because you're ignorant to the fact English is not his first language and as an American (despite not even speaking the language properly yourself) your instant reaction is to take everything as its dictionary definition rather than accommodating someone's language barrier and being able to understand what he's saying. You're clearly a next level spanner who has no valid opinion on anything other than sucking dick and playing f2p warrior
