Pretty cool new in-game video, featuring the Battle at the Wrath Gate / The Battle for Undercity. This video reminds me a lot of the the very popular Tales of the Past videos. It really is very well done, though the voice acting was a bit “meh” in my opinion.
I won’t say much more than that fear fear of spoiling the video / story for everyone. Please note, the following video reveals many of the story elements regarding wotlk and arathas. If you want to save all the surprises for expansion then don’t watch this video.
On a side note…am I the only one that thinks this looks like a LotR rip off? wrath gate…black gate, drakes flying in at the end…eagles flying in at the end. Maybe it’s just me, but it’s very similar in many ways.
As some of you may already know I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus this season as far as arena has been concerned. Part of this is due to all of my partners retiring / breaking till expansion at the end of S3 and partly due to just flat our boredom. After a couple of months without any serious arena I’m finally starting to get back into the swing of things and I’ve found myself a new partner.
Rogue / Restokin Druid Is Here!
My new 2v2 team, which will be my primary arena focus, is a rogue / restokin druid (that’s him to the right!). So far we’ve played 2 nights and quickly made it to 2055 rating. It’s a very interesting combo to play and truly unlike anything I’ve ever played before. More than anything else this combo requires a much higher level of communication. The more and more we play the more I really am starting to understand the absolute important of continual communication, target switching and well timed crowd control. It’s a great experience and I can’t wait to see how far we can take this team.
I’ve been hinting at Zuggy 3 for sometime, and I feel like I’ve finally got the right setup I’ve been looking for this video.
What Will Be In Zuggy 3?
- Rogue / Restokin Druid 2v2 Arena Matches
- High level strategy discussion and comp breakdown
- Detailed strategy write up to go along with the video
- Audio explanations of all fights

There aren’t many games on the market currently that even come close to competing with World of Warcraft. However, it looks like WoW’s number one competitor might have finally developed their game play enough to start putting a dent into the MMO giant that is World of Warcraft.
Zuggy 2 – Return of the Troll…
This is my 2nd arena video and features myself in all 3 arena brackets. The footage showcases clips from my rogue / priest 2v2 team, rogue / mage / priest 3v3 team, and rogue / hunter / elemental shaman / druid / priest 5v5 team.
All clips were filmed at or above 2300 rating during season 3.
Rogue Arena Addons / User Interfaces Used

Other U.I. notes, because several people asked this question about my last video. The large bar which shows cast bars towards the middle of my screen is a focus casting bar. You can see the focus frame to the left of my screen.
I use it to watch for incoming crowd controls / heals so I can adjust before they land.
- Queen – Another One Bites the Dust (intro only)
- Nightwish – Dark Chest of Wonders
- Muse – Assassin
- Trivium – Ascendancy
- The Arcade Fire – Rebellion
- Motely Crue – Kick Start My Heart

For those of you that have been even vaguely aware of the
rogue community then the name Buddhist should sound very familiar. Previously Buddhist has been known for his humorous videos, but I hope his most recent release is a sign of things to come.
Without question, this is one of the best moonkin / rogue 2v2 videos I’ve seen. In addition to be quite entertaining, Buddhist has included textual commentary throughout the video. These notes, though brief, give a some great insights into each strategy on a team by team basis.
If you’re having some trouble really finding success with druid / rogue 2v2 I’d strongly suggest checking out this video. It’s got great pointers and a wide variety of matchups.
