This setup is one of the most viable for holy paladins and resto shamans in 3v3 bracket. Basically this setup lacks on CC but both Shaman and Paladin can play the outlast game very well. Coordinate drinkings, avoid CC, kiting, Interrupts on CD by the Shaman and burst dmg by the healers when Bloodlust/Heroism is up are the keys for this team to succeed!
Holy Paladin: 41/20/0
The basic talent build for a PVP holy palading with 20 points in Protection Tree for Stoicism and Improved Concentration Aura.
Resto Shaman: 0/9/52
A full resto build with Improved Ghost Wolf from the enhancement tree.
Arms Warrior: 35/23/3 or 33/28/0
Very difficult matchup as you can easily get CC’ed. Some basic points that may help:
- Early Blessing of Protection on Shaman when the rogue is on him,
- Blessing of Sacrifice to avoid sheeps/blind,
- The warrior must go for the priest and the shaman must spam purge him,
- Fake healing to avoid CS and Kick,
- Kite as much as possible, use Blessing of Freedom to their target
Don’t play the outlast game with this setup. Early Bloodlust/Heroism, Judgement of Justice, and burst dps by Shaman and Paladin on their druid for a gib is the way to go.
Usually the rogue and warlock will just buy the druid time the entire fight. Gibbing the felhunter before the druid pops out is key. Bouncing back and forth b.w the warlock and druid while keeping snares on their rogue is important. Getting that druid to shift to bear with Judgement of Justice on him constantly will drop his mana quick. Landing every interrupt on the druid is extremely necessary too.
vs Melee Zerg
Possible teams are Druid/Rogue/Warrior and Druid/Retri Paladin/Warrior. Always go for the druid with Judgement of Justice Up. The shaman will be their target most of the time. Their team lacks on CC too, so you won’t have problems healing their target. This setup is basically why Shaman/Holy Paladin/Warrior can succeed in 3v3s.
