Saturday night Lilac “discovered” Arathi Basin. It sucks. It makes us mad. It makes me want to pound things and throw them across the room. It makes me cuss. I made it through 3 of them before I gave it up, logged off and went to bed to fume about how freaking stupid it is to play a battleground where I get repeatedly camped into my freaking graveyard and how they can all just eat my freaking shorts!!!!
Sunday Lilac “discovered” Altarac Valley. It sucked less. It made me less mad. It did confuse me. There’s just too many darn things to do. The explanation of AV in one minute boils down to “run south, stop and kill Galv, then go to the south-most point and wait until someone says ‘all in’ then kill Drek”. But there seems to be a bunch of other things you -could- do in there.. that I’m not entirely sure you should do.. I mean.. all those towers on the way down.. is anyone supposed to capture them? I was told “don’t stop there and cature that graveyard ’cause it’ll cause a Turtle”. Ok.. Turtles bad.. what are turtles? I found AV lots less frustrating.
Why am I doing this?
– In order to do Mount Hyjal, specifically Winterchill everyone should have the PVP trinket to get out of snares (otherwise you get iceblocked and die). So both Lilac and Tatia each need 8k honor.
– The summer olympics seasonal event is offering a tabard and a chance at a non-combat pet when you win a battleground. I suspect that because the non-combat pet is a little chinese dragon.. that it will only be available this year.. and will never be available again. So if I want it.. (which I kind of do) then I need to PVP now, and get it before the 25th.
Between Saturday and Sunday Lilac got about 7k honor and the tabard. No pet yet but I’ll keep trying. Then I’ll do the same thing with Tatia. Wheee.
