Hey everyone! I’m a new member to Skill-Capped and wanted to start my adventure here with this article. This article will begin very general and get specific as it progresses.

Arena Mentality

Arena mentality is a specific way of thinking that a player develops, adapts and builds after gaining more experience and playing more games. It’s important to play a lot of games to improve as a player and a team.

Studying all the classes, specializations and compositions is vital to your success in PVP. Once you learn and understand all the abilities and how they function together you can then practice how to adapt to the meta game and have your mind more focused on important decisions during a game. These decisions include defensive cool down management, offensive cool down management, crowd control and positioning.

Generally there are 3 categories of compositions;


  1. Cleaves
  2. Caster Cleaves
  3. Melee/Caster/Healer


All of these categories will require different decisions to achieve victory against.

From Bad to Glad: The First Step

by Archive // January 21, 2011

This is the first installment in a series of articles and videos that will document my attempt to start an entirely new class (Hunter) and become a Gladiator in less than one full arena season. Because I will be pursuing this end in a calculated and deliberate manner, I hope that my own experience and insight during this process will help others to achieve similar goals in the future. To be more concise, this series is intended to create a system that will help aspiring Gladiators reach their goals as effectively and efficiently as possible.

The Fundamentals of Crowd Controlling – Part 3/3: Stuns

by Archive // September 1, 2010

Crowd controlling (CCing) has one of the greatest roles in arena game play, so understanding the best ways to utilize your team’s CC and putting it into action puts your team in a good position in the arena match. CC can be separated into three categories: interrupts, casted CC, and stuns, with the first two already being covered in parts 1 and 2 of this article series. Stuns are unique compared to other CCs, because although they have both offensive and defensive capabilities, their offensive potential is shown by providing an opportunity to focus damage into a target for an immense amount of pressure for even the kill.
