Musings of a dedicated player on the state of the World of Warcraft
As I previously blogged, I recently took my warrior and joined an all Dwarf PvP guild, <Clan Battlehammer>, on Emerald Dream-US, an RP-PvP server. So far it’s been an incredible experience. Twice a week we have “Call to Arms” events which range from full on city raids to patrolling lowbie zones to defend levelers from gankers.
We are primarily a PvP guild, but since we are also on an RP server, we like to start off our events with a little Pomp and Circumstance. Usually this means lining up in formation in Ironforge and marching off to the Deeprun Tram to Stormwind and then continuing our march to the gates of Stormwind before either porting to our destination, or mounting our flyers.
For the most part, the denizens of IF and SW like it when we do this. We usually are cheered and a lot of lowbies like to run alongside us as we march. However, this is not always the case. We are generally well liked on our server by Alliance and Horde guilds alike. Two of the most prominent world PvP Horde guilds on the server, The Crew and HK Army, usually have positive things to say about us when people inquire about Alliance PvP guilds on our realm forums, and we do the same for them. We are competitive but respect each other.
However, there is one Alliance guild on our server that is well known for their love of griefing, and they made an appearance at our CTA event last night. 37 Battlehammers assembled last night to take down Cairne Bloodhoof, after taking out the Blood Elf leader the previous week.
After engaging Cairne, an Alliance bear druid showed up and kept taunting him and forcing him to reset on us. He did this 3 times, and by that time a good number of Horde had showed up and we were no match for their combined forces as well as Cairne 2 shotting non tanks.
While the actions of that druid are annoying, it didn’t stop us from having fun that night and later on, we logged onto some alts on Moon Guard to visit another all Dwarf guild. We even ventured into the den of iniquity that is the Moon Guard Goldshire Inn. I’ll post about that adventure later today or tomorrow.
