Argent Tournament: Jousting Strategies

In the PTR the jousting in the Argent Tournament was very difficult, but since it went live they’ve nerfed the NPC’s quite a bit making the jousts very winnable.  Here’s how I’ve been doing it. Hopefully it’ll work for you too.

  1. Stack your shields to +3 BEFORE challenging an opponent. I don’t know how many times I’ve forgotten to do this.
  2. Whenever the NPC opens the distance between you, wait until he’s in charge range and then charge. This should remove one shield from him.
  3. Once you’ve charged, veer off to the side in a tight loop. When you’re at the apex of the loop do a shield breaker and then close the distance. This is tricky and you wont get one off every time. But when you do it’ll take another shield off your opponent.
  4. If you’re behind don’t bother with charges, when your NPC opens the distance just do a shield breaker and then close the distance before he can charge you.  This will let you wail on him with one shield off and let you catch up.
  5. Be very aware of your shields and keep them at +3 , the max. Some opponents can take your shields away very quickly and you need to put them back really fast or you will lose.
