Coming from the perspective of a 3 foot squishy Mage, Gnomeaggedon could never understand why anyone would want to heal in Battlegrounds.
They are scary places where often the cloth wearer is the 1st to die. If you have any interest in PvP you would have read or heard that the Healer should always be the priority #1 target.
PvE sounds much safer
It sounds that way… Nice “controlled” damage coming from a bunch of scripted foes.
In reality I think I have more deaths in instances than I do in BGs. I probably lose relatively more healing targets in PvE than I do in PvP.
PvE sounds much more exciting
Yeah, nothing beats the thrill of a boss kill. It’s a shame that there is snoozefest between bosses and often those bosses are tuned to stress healers more than DPS or tanks.
Battlegrounds are non stop action. You will dream of the day you has O5SR mana regen. Heal, run, heal, heal, heal, run, decurse, cheer.
For Teh Horde, For the Alliance!
If you have even the slightest ounce of RP in you, you will be aware that we are at war.
Sure there is that bunny Arthas around to distract you, but that’s all he is, a minor distraction.
Cataclysm is shaping up to remind us of our true reason for being.
Varian Wrynn is a nut bag, that would take a pot shot at a Hordie while dangling over a cliff with the only thing between him and certain doom being the Hordie holding his hand.
Garrosh… Well I think Garrosh hates his own mother, hopefully she hates him. He not only hates the Alliance with a passion, but he hates 1/2 the Horde too!
When Garrosh replaces Thrall, it will be all out war between the factions. The question is why wait?
Have some pride in your faction and kill a Hordie today!
I’ve played both factions over the years, dabbling in a bit of battlegrounds as I have gone along. When I am PvEing, questing etc I am overcome with the need to help another character in trouble, no matter what the faction.
After a bit of time in the battlegrounds your perspective changes. They really do become the enemy, you no longer dream of an alliance between the Horde and Alliance.
You dream of repelling the offensive scum!
For Teh Experience(s)
If you are a healer, especially if you are leveling, I recommend you wet your feet in a BG.
- You will learn all sort of skills and tactics
- You will save the day for your faction
- You will open the doors to a new range of gear that doesn’t cost emblems
- You will gain XP.
I now find myself queuing for a BG, joining LFG and then questing and grinding. It creates a great mix of activities for an evening and a steady flow of XP.
If you are dual spec, you will get enough time from when the BG invite pops to change spec before the invite elapses… If you are quick.
- Don’t be scared
- Don’t wet your pants.
- Heal the Battlegrounds!
