Welcome to the World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King PvP 2v2 arena team comp tier list! We will be ranking some of the strongest and most popular 2v2 arena team comps in the game, as well as explaining their position in the tier list.

We rate each comp by taking the following factors into consideration:

  • Overall Power: How strong the comp is in the broadest terms possible.
  • Counters: How many counters the comp has, along with how popular these counters are. For instance, a comp with a poor match-up against Arms Warrior / Holy Paladin, the most popular comp in the game, would be rated unfavourably.
  • Surprise Factor: How likely the comp is to sneak a few victories by surprising the enemy team, due to being an uncommon or unpredictable comp. Teams with a high surprise factor can win games when the enemy team doesn’t expect their gimmick, but they tend to do worse when you fight the same team over and over, as they adapt to your tricks.
  • Difficulty: How difficulty the comp is to pilot. Comps that do okay but take significant effort to play well will be rated slightly unfavourably.

Note that this Tier List covers classes and specs in their patch 3.3.5 state. This works just like in previous Classic expansions: although we’re doing content starting with the very first phase, our spells, talents, and equipment are already in their finalized states, which has great implications on the metagame.

Furthermore, this tier list ranks all the comps for their overall performance through the expansion’s duration — we do not rank them for 1 specific phase. Arms Warrior / Holy Paladin is typically considered to be stronger in latter phases and weaker in earlier phases, for example, which would change how it is placed slightly.
