@Kalash: +1 lol you hit the nail on the head
@Whoeversaidnottousecertainskillstokillpeopleeasily (GL reading that ahuehue): Every class is capable of countering every class. I play in 80 arena on my AM and i find it 'newb' of players that dont know what to do when i use my class skills. ie. SS that gets exhausted freaks out and doesnt know what to do and runs or just stands there (erm hello a smart SS will continue normal attacking in hopes to proc a gun so that when exhaust runs out they can do something), Temp that gets rooted or stopped just stands there and does nothing (dude sleep hammer realm of eternity and cure spam until you get close), WL that tries to attack a heavily geared archmage in sleep hammer and realm of eternity in mage tank mode (your class is a damage dealer dude deal damage tanking and doing pitiful damage will not help you kill an AM you gotta go balls deep from the get go your yellow set will tank for you), Mystic that only wolfs (bro you have other forns that help you wolf if thats all you wanna do), Prophet that doesnt help its team (your a support class enough said), DS that prays for the bit to kill (watch xLito he knows how to use the bit), DM that doesnt know who to target ( this is simply an experience problem and depends arena to arena overall DM's just need to tank misfortune and cycle skills well imo), AM that doesnt use most of its skills ( AMs can completely dismantle physical classes against magic though its just sleep debuff and pew pew).
that reminds me of two pallies i have faced in HoJ with my 50 wizard. both were well fort (not +18 but better than me) and i had the pleaseure of facing both twice.
the first one i simply killed him in three rounds. he was a push over. after rooting/stunning hold a got him to 25% health before he had the bright idea to heal himself. he never encouraged himself either.
second round the next day he had wolf rage combat mount. now this was difficult but certainly not impossible for the pally hadn't improved at all. same tactics but just with a higher movement speed, for this round i had to go all out and use my teleport spell. he was whining the whole time "stop running around" "coward" and what not. i'm a wizard you think i'm just going to sit there and take it? i may be fearless but i'm not stupid enough to slug it out in close range with a tank. 3-2 my way, that mount was a pain.
the other pally was different, he was a blast! i was shaking from excitment when the matches were over. round one; he was useing silence on me and every stun he knew. he even used terra ripple to slow me down. we ran cicles around the field and since i had lega i was hard to catch. he nearly killed me every time but i won all 3 rounds.
after that i didn't see him in HoJ. we played WSB togeather and i helped him earn his pvp gear. pleaseant fellow if quiet.
second round was completely different. i, at first, had my health at 90%. realizing i couldn't win like that i put it at 100%. well i didn't win, he had lost some speed but his armor was much better and had improved his tactics. my own tactics had also improved and using tele was more natural now that is was a main part of my fight plans. the ast 4 rounds we tied, he spamed healed and i spamed rooting and we just couldn't kill each other. 4th round he nearly managed to kill me but time ran out, 5th and last round i did something new; i ran towards him instead of giving ground, i pinned him to the wall away from those annoying health crystals. 1 loss and 4 ties. man he was fun
long story short, there are many that don't know how to use their class and some just arn't good at battlefields. try HoJ out, you might fare better when it's 1 on 1.
