World of Warcraft Brawl: Temple of Hotmogu
This week we are blessed with another fun World of Warcraft Brawl to keep us entertained. For those who do not know, the WoW brawls are basically fun PvP modes which use the same old maps we know and love but with some extra twists along the way. The first brawl that was launched was the Arathi Basin map but the twist was that everything happened during a blizzard. The blizzard meant that visibility was extremely low and surfaces were slippery as well. This type of brawls come each and every week and this week we have the Temple of Hotmogu.
This mode is quite simple but it can become quite hectic. This mode happens on the Temple of Kotmogu map and the extra modifiers are as follows:
- Haste increased
- Movement speed increased
- Respawn times decreased
This basically means faster melee hits / spells, increased movement speed so you can move around faster or get back into the fight and also decreased respawn times which will make everyone just go in blindly into the battlefield as they can return really, really fast with a 5 second respawn time.
This brawl also has an extra twist. Once you have an Orb in your possession, a spell will appear in the middle of your screen, right above the action bars. This spell allows you to throw the Orb to a friendly target. This basically allows you to throw the Orb to another player if you are close to dying. This can ensure that your team gets a lot more points and ultimately win the match.
At first glance it seemed like a pretty relaxed brawl but once I got into it, it quickly became a crazy ride. The increased movement speed combined with the decreased respawn time makes everything super fast paced as everyone just goes in, dies, gets back up and repeats the whole process. This combined with the fact that you need to have an eye on your HP at all times so you can throw the Orb if needed or the fact that you need to pay attention if someone threw the Orb on you, so you can prepare yourself for the enemies which will surely focus you. For a casual player like me, it was quite hectic but I throughly enjoyed it as it kept me on my toes and it felt so good to win it after several attempts.
Below you can find a video of me playing on my enhancement shaman in this wonderful brawl. The video is about 8 minutes long and it does not contain any commentary, it was simply recoreded so you can see how hectic this brawl can get.
