Holy Dogdoddles Batman.
I was tired of having my arse handed to me on a plate over the last week in Battlegrounds…
Did you know you can purchase nearly all of the Wrathful PvP gear with honor alone?
Any gear that requires 1800 or less less than 2,000 rating can now be purchased with honor, no rating required.
At 1st glance this seems like cheating… and well, I guess it kind of is, except for…
… the fact that the game is so unbalanced at the moment anyway.
They have buffed resilience because we are all so OP, so if you don’t have it, or just have non-Arena-rating levels, you are butter to the Wrathful Gladiator’s hot knives.
And ohhh boy are those knives hot!
Arena season has ended… all these arena geared psychos with nothing warm-blooded to kill… but…
… Rated BGs will be here soon…
… might as well go slice some Relentless and Furious players into little pieces, then spread them all over the Battlegrounds.
So, if you have been spread all over a battleground lately and have any honor in the “bank”, pop down to the Arena vendors in the sewers for the set pieces, weapons and off-hands, and of course the vendors in Stormwind or Orgrimmar for the off-set pieces.
Spend that apparently small amount of honor you have, on all your Xmas presents now!
Right… I’m off… I’ve got some Horde that need to be taught a lesson or two about trying to spread resilient Gnomes.
Sun has just risen, I have just left the Raid from the Heart.. it was awesome!
Sleeping through 2 alarms didn’t keep me from the event.
I want to make a special mention of a stranger that I bumped into yesterday on Kael’thas-US. It is literally the story of a “dog” (OK, Ghost wolf) following me home and me keeping him.
You know those times when you are rushing about only to discover someone following your (like I think he was literally on auto-follow). I’m incredibly happy that I didn’t go the path of the Grumpy Gnome, because this Shaman, Paradoxz, turned out to be truly EPIC!
You see, our Alliance Rent-a-Port didn’t appear… but Paradoxz had a nobler, more Magely side… yes he is a level 80 Mage.
He swapped over to Épíc (with the funny things over the E & I) and saved the day. Poor guy was a bit overwhelmed when we left the ‘Span, don’t know whether he will ever regain the courage to cast a Portal ever again. Some of his guildies & mates also rode shogun through the wetlands, leaving roadkill to either side of our path.
I was a bit surprised to discover that you don’t eat your roadkill up north… but someone pointed out there was no need to eat roadkill while there were Gnomes to eat! This coming from the Alliance side…
So apart from the expected thanks to BBB, Cassie and all the other people that made this such a great event (I know there are quite a few of you, but don’t know names, feel free to out yourselves), I’d like to give special thanks to Épíc for not just coming for the ride, but getting us all to where we needed to be.
That and something special for another post, where I show (Well, Epic provided the evidence) that BBB’s fears of a NewMageOrder are well founded.
Ohh if you were at the event, and now have a harddisk full of screenshots, you can email them to BBB over the next week.
