Master of Eye of the Storm

Well, not really… but I did get the achievement last night. πŸ˜‰


Funny thing with PvP achievements – you just don’t know when you’re going to get some of them. Such was the case with Stormtrooper. When I decided I was going to try for the Battlemaster meta-achievement, Stormtrooper became one of the toughies (for me anyway) to knock down.Β To earn the Stormtrooper achievement, one must kill 5 enemy flag carriers in a single battle. You’re not required to land the killing blow, you just need to qualify for the honor kill. I’d reached 4 many times, but never 5.

Garwulf of the Alliance

Update: This post is an example of me being guilty of a BUI (blogging under the influence). It’s playful in nature, so I’ll leave it unedited, but here are a few additional thoughts and clarifications from the following afternoon…

Just so you know… I do think this is a pretty cool achievement. I’m pretty apathetic towards WoW achievements for the most part, but this one feels pretty cool. Not to mention, less than 5% of players worldwide have it. πŸ™‚

Sieze the Day!

This is your last chance to catch a glimpse of the Old World as we know it, for after tomorrow… all hell will hath broken loose.

A couple of months ago I decided it was time for a good ol’ fashioned Azerothian vacation, so is set out to explore its vast reaches. What I found that was even after 4 1/2 years of playing World of Warcraft, there were still quite a few areas of the world I had never encountered.

Steady Hands

I have sent multitudes of players to the graveyard without succumbing to death myself

I have been an All-Star in both Arathi Basin and Alterac Valley

I have repeatedly braved the field of battle with the strength and cunning of an invincible Ironman

I have slain consecutive opponents in the battle arena – – without mercy and without defeat

Nearly 100,000 horde foes have fallen to my arrows, bullets and big red pet…

But for the life of me… I cannot disarm five f***king Seaforium Charges in one f***king SotA battle. 😑

Apart from Stromtrooper and Resilient Victory, which I figure are just a matter of time since I’ve been very close with both, Steady Hands is pretty much the only BG achievement standing between me and Battlemaster.

Honestly… I thought Ironman was tough, but Steady Hands is just flat-out nonsense. I’d read somewhere that it used to be you could disarm the charges from the turret platforms, which obviously was poor design on Blizz’s part. However, I wished I’d have known then what I know now. πŸ™ I could have taken the easy road…

Alterac Valley All-Star

I’ve never been so glad to see a Death Knight in a BG, that’s for sure. πŸ™‚

Alterac Valley All-Star

That achievement I recently earned is one of the more frustrating BG achievements in the game. The necessary steps aren’t overly difficult, however, trying to get them all done in time requires some hustle and a little luck.

Since trying for this one over the past week, I managed three times to get 4/5 during the span of the game. Regardless of which task I still had yet to complete, I could never finish in time. The other night it went like clockwork though… well, aside from the part where I was riding around in the Field of Strife, waiting for what seemed like an eternity, for a soon-to-be-victim.
