You need to get yourself a decent partner Tea =P. Even you should be able to get a 500 rating.
I have an awesome partner. And he's not bad at arena either.
I never said we couldn't get 500, which I believe you can get just by showing up and drooling, which I can do okay. Last season I think we were at a thousand, but I only did our 10 matches for 3 weeks before I was all meh, not tonight honey, I have a headache. So it probably would've gone up a little from there, although I don't think we'd ever hit Aethien's 1550 (let alone whatever he gets on his hunter).

I can't survive that way, though, against someone with a good weapon, or someone who is good at PVP, or both. Which you find more in arena than on battlegrounds.
Bah, I'm sure we could do okay if I'd get in there. The rating requirements for the lower tier gear are really low this season. I just haetz arena the way Aethien hates battlegrounds, and the way Moz hates Holy.
