Positioning – One Step Away From Victory or Defeat

by Pontifex // March 10, 2010

Proper positioning is possibly the most overlooked aspect of arena by new players. When used properly, it will allow you a greater amount of control over the flow of the match, giving you an advantage over the opposing team. The main benefits of good positioning are avoiding CC and damage, forcing swaps, and making swaps to you much more difficult. Once you can apply good positioning into your gameplay, you’ll feel more in control of the match and will find yourself winning more frequently. While this guide is written by a holy paladin with other holy paladins in mind, ALL of the concepts in this guide will apply to all healers/ranged dps, and is very useful to know as melee dps as well.
