    Lightbulb PvP warfront tactics to increase wins

    Anyone care to share their tactics or ideas used?

    The obvious:
    • Valor gear
    • Stay with group
    • Spec for PvP
    • Marking healers
    • Communicating objectives
    • Using power up buffs (orbs in warfronts)
    • Pre-made grouping

    Are there others I have missed or ideas to share?

    specify that healers should be marked for both sides. low numbers for enemy, high numbers for friendly

    Stand near the front lines, take off underwear, and tear it above your head for intimidation

    i would suggest eating the underwear instead of putting it on your head... because the head could be dirty.

    I'll freely admit that I wish the Warhammer IP had done better, since the image of a giant green Orc sword/board tank doing this with his giant underpants sounds promising.

    Mark target #1 - Everyone destroys. Mark new target #1 - Everyone destroys. Repeat until other team is dead.

    That seems to work best for me, pug or premade. Marking 5-6 healers seems to confuse people and they just pick any of the numbers and attack them. With 2 people attacking each number and all that cross healing, no one is going to die. But, 12 people all on one target, healing can't handle it.

    Make use of the /yell command. Make sure yours is a macro. This will often provoke a response and the opponent will not be able to 11111122 you because they will be typing in a chat window.

    If you have a team that knows how to assist and focus fire, you don't need tactics, and classes are mostly irrelevant too.
    I have a photoshopic memory. I remember everything you say or do exactly the way I want to.

    Make an assist macro and find the person who looks the most competent (gear can be misleading 90% of the time). Bind that macro to whatever is easiest to spam the entire fight

    Kindly ask whichever rogues are not bards to warp out so you may get another war/cleric/mage in their place.

    How to increase your chances at winning in pvp:
    1. Communicate
    2. Communicate
    3. Communicate

    Voice com isn't even needed to do this effectively. Report everything you see to your team. "2 inc statue" will get the respawner's attention and you can ward off the attack. "Kill the ones with blue bars under their health first" If everyone listens/responds warfronts will go much smoother.

    Another thing I do is try to be the first one to enter the WF so I get lead. Then I give everyone assist and announce "I gave everyone assist. Let's see some healers marked."

    I've heard about this but haven't stumbled on how. Care to share?
