↖ Solo Shuffle PvP Introduction
Solo Shuffle is a unique type of PvP arena where six players compete in six rounds of 3v3 arena matches. The teams are shuffled at the end of each round, adding an exciting twist to traditional PvP gameplay. The objective is for a team to be the first to eliminate an opponent player, securing victory for that round. Solo Shuffle is primarily a rated PvP activity, and players are wow gold rewarded based on the number of rounds won per game.

↖ Solo Shuffle Basics
- Specializations and Ratings: Unlike other Rated PvP activities, Solo Shuffle has a separate rating for each of your character's specializations. This means that your rating may vary depending on the role you choose to play (DPS, Healer, or Tank).
- Cross-Faction Play: In Solo Shuffle, cross-faction play is enabled, allowing you to team up with players from the opposite faction.
- Team Composition: Each Solo Shuffle team consists of one Healer and two DPS players. Tanks can also queue for Solo Shuffle, but they are counted as DPS in this mode, except for Protection Paladins, who are considered Healers.
- Penalties for Leaving: Leaving a rated Solo Shuffle match prematurely will result in receiving the Deserter debuff and losing the rating as if you had lost all six rounds.
↖ Arena PvP Fundamentals:
- Coordinated Defensive Play: Use defensive cooldowns when your opponents use their offensive cooldowns to survive longer and thwart enemy attacks effectively.
- Utilize Class Toolkit: Familiarize yourself with your class's abilities, including mobility skills to escape danger (e.g., Divine Steed), crowd control to interrupt healing or shut down offense (e.g., Polymorph), and utility spells (e.g., Innervate or Thorns) to support your team.
- Track Cooldowns: Keep track of important cooldowns used by your opponents, so you know when they can pose a significant threat or when you have the opportunity to secure a kill.
- Teamwork: Communicate and collaborate with your teammates to focus on a common target for offensive strategies and use crowd control to help keep your allies alive during challenging situations.
- Casting Mind Games: If you're a caster, consider "fake casting" by intentionally cancelling a cast to bait out an opponent's interrupt, giving you an opening to cast uninterrupted later.
↖ Gearing for Solo Shuffle PvP
- PvP Item Level Requirement: In Dragonflight Season 1, a PvP item level of 408 is necessary to queue for Solo Shuffle matches.

↖ Solo Shuffle Rewards
- Standard Rated PvP Rewards: Participating in Solo Shuffle PvP allows you to earn standard Rated PvP rewards, including Conquest points, progress in the Great Vault for better loot options, credit towards vicious mounts, and other seasonal rewards.
