PvE, or player versus environment, is one of the two major fighting styles as opposed to player versus player. Some WoW lovers swear by it, while others find it far less engaging than facing the challenge faced by every single PvP-friendly player out there. What’s hard to deny though is that this mode has particular appeal for those who value the ability to learn through repetitive and predictable situations rather than encounters that vary highly in spite of similar settings. But how do you make the most of your PvE experience in World of Warcraft?
There are many ways in which a player can expand their potential with a focus on playing against computer-controlled enemies rather than other players. From exploring the many dungeons that require special keystones such as mythic 15 to investing in your gear and skills, you have many options to try. Here are some viable progress strategies for those who like it PvE style.
Choose the Right Class
A lot will depend on what class you choose for your character, no matter whether you stick to PvE exclusively or like to switch between different modes. The capabilities of each class and, most importantly, their specs range what makes certain classes stand out in PvE settings. While opinions do differ, the Warlock is widely considered to be great for PvE-only players. Those who’d appreciate some variance should look into the Titan.
Classes and specs can be confusing, especially for beginner players. Paid class coaching is an investment that might pay off beyond expectations when done by a pro since it leaves you equipped with in-depth knowledge and skills that pertain to your particular hero.
Don’t Ignore Dungeons and Raids
If we were to put it shortly, practice, practice, and practice would be the motto. You can’t have too much practice when it comes to PvE playing as a specialty because virtually any encounter that you engage in is bound to add to your skill as well as your stats. The key to expanding your scope here is to go social by regularly participating in dungeons and raids as soon as you reach the necessary levels.
Please note that not all classes allow for spec switching, so your initial choice might prove somewhat limiting. This is especially true with dungeons where the number of players and their roles are fixed. You should take into account the fact that tanks and healers are usually in greater demand as compared to DPSers.
Make Sure You Don’t Miss Out on Big Opportunities
Player versus environment is essentially about mastering the skill of killing your enemies without exposing yourself to the additional stress that’s associated with being attacked by other players. This shouldn’t be misinterpreted as a mode that precludes social interactions, though. Do try and explore raiding and dungeon fights with other players who are there to play with rather than against you to truly enjoy the PvE aspect of WoW.
