Hunter With a Blue Dress On

Robes of the Lich

Or is that purplish..? Hard to tell…

When I rolled this character it was out of desire to explore the lore and different zones from a Horde point of view. While I have done my share of that, I’ve actually been having more fun just wreaking havoc in Warsong Gulch and Arathi Basin.

Last night I had the urge to scratch my PvP itch, only this time I did it For the Horde, and in the playground of the 30-39 bracket. I love low level PvP. Success in the lower levels relies so much more upon maneuvering and strategy than it does in end-game PvP. Gear and burst damage isn’t as much of a factor, which allows you to still be competitive as long as you play your class effectively and are mindful of the terrain. Now that twinks are largely absent from the experience rewarding BGs, it’s a pretty level playing field. Well, pretty level as long as the dress-wearing Orc isn’t your BG. 😉

I’ve fully explored the joy that is BG leveling, having gone from 25-29 and 34-39 mainly via BG experience. I just can’t get enough of it. 😀 Even though it’s the same old terrain and objective, it’s a new and exciting instance of play every single time. It’s also a nice way to get some decent gear as you level, especially since finding a Mara PuG isn’t always so easy, at least on my server.

As for me, I’ve been stockpiling my badges for the next bracket. The only item I’ve purchased so far has been the WSG staff. I’m thinking of going semi-big in the 40-49 bracket and hoping to surprise some would-be gankers in world PvP.

Knight of Arathor

I was hoping for a very heroic portrait of me solo defending the stables versus three attackers, but alas that didn’t happen. Along with “Knight of Arathor”, I was also earning the “Dirt Nap” achievement. 😉 Let’s face it… most of the achievements are pretty ridiculous. Yet, it’s always a fun surprise when that familiar sound plays, along with the …

Patchy Goodness

Well, what do you guys think of the patch so far? I don’t have too much to report. My evening consisted mostly of battlegrounds, including a rough series of games in which the Alliance acted as if Warsong Gulch was a new BG introduced in 3.2. It wasn’t until my fifth WSG that I finally got into a game where …
