Musings of a dedicated player on the state of the World of Warcraft
Last night, <Clan Battlehammer> of Emerald Dream-US, assembled for some World PvP goodness. Our 30+ strong Dwarven mob began the evening with our usual pre-battle march from Ironforge to Stormwind, via the Deeprun Tram. We ported to Theramore and then, knowing it was a suicide mission, dive-bombed into Orgrimmar, killing quite a few NPC’s and players before being overwhelmed by Horde.
That was just the beginning. After regrouping, we decided that we wanted to own Undercity. Our intentions were not to kill Sylvanas, but rather to lock down the city and claim it as our own. Our first move was to secure the portal area, so that we could take out anyone porting in to defend the city. We then moved to the center of the city and held it down.
Apparently both of the major Horde side PvP guilds were doing rated BG’s at the time, so we didn’t get much of a reaction, which was dissapointing, so we ended up killing Sylvanas and leaving.
This was the first time that I have done any world PvP on Emerald Dream where Horde didn’t show up en masse to defend a city. There were a few people who tried to repel us, and I salute them, but there wasn’t enough of them to turn the tide of the battle.
On an individual note, I dropped both of my professions on my Hunter and Warrior this weekend. I decided to make my Hunter a gatherer, picking up Mining and Herbalism, and my Warrior (my main), is a Jewelcrafter and Alchemist (Xmute spec for gems). I am hoping to have both professions maxed out by Sunday, but depending on how many RBG’s I run this week, I may not have the time.
I also plan on creating a Troll Warrior on Ysondre to join up with some fellow Tumblies in the guild <Dashboard>.
Finally, I think I am going to start a PvP arc for my next few posts. Topics will include, PvP basics, Surviving a PvP server, Battlegrounds, and how I think each class is faring in Season 11 so far.
