Hey everyone! After finally grinding 90k echoes, to obtain enough infinite stars to have 675 Corruption (before resistance) in Arena, we are going to see just how powerful this is!
The way to grind all the echoes needed is definitely 3v3 without a healer. A good rate is about 1k Echoes an hour.

The reason Protection is so solid with this is because we have a lot of immunities, which makes us able to survive the 495% damage taken increase from Corruption. We have Divine Shield
, as well as 2x Guardian of the Forgotten Queen
when we use the essence Touch of the Everlasting
Sometimes we are also able to live long enough to use Blessing of Spellwarding
We want to stack Haste and Versatility. During Seraphim
and trinket I have about 48% Versatility and 42% haste. On average 80% of my Arenas lead to a proc of Infinite Stars
. With that said, if the enemy got some kind of defensive up and the stars doesn't crit, it might not one shot them (only do 80-90% of their HP).
Pets are also an issue, since the Infinite Stars
hit random targets. This makes each pet add an additional layer of RNG.
I would suggest you queue with teammates that are good at 1v1, since you are really squishy and can't heal yourself. (A healer can easily 2 shot you).
Also, a red transmog can help to conceal the amount of Corruption you have, since some people doesn't check your debuffs at the start of the Arena and might not target you.
