I commented while streaming not that long ago that I wished we could repeat the 200 kills quest in Ashran, and that the dominance could be reduced from 1 boss kill and 4 events to 1 boss kill and 2 events.
Didn’t get that exactly but the dominance quest now give 750 cp, up from 500. So that’s basically 2 (and a half!) extra events! My wish is.. someones command?
Did some wpvp with my Alliance Vanguard guild, but there was no real opposition in Orgrimmar, or Warspear. We just kind of rolled over everything.
All those players standing around the Alliance turn in are doing that to premade any ore being turned in at all. Now, that’s a valid strategy generally but you will never, ever, see a pug group doing that. Pugs do their fighting at the entrances.
I did 2’s with Deacon, the warrior who sorta recruited me over to Bleeding Hollow on my druid, into the Alliance Vanguard guild. They were the ones who had a few people come to our Stormpike Militia games. Which… huh. Don’t know if I explained that here. So first of all, got the Hot Streak achievement.
As for the SM thing, it started out when regular form-goers wanted to play together, and managed by Smellybeard, a dwarf shaman, we did wargames together for a few months. When that went under because of drama from a few people, Mizriz and Barrym took over in the fight against Hydra, to do premades in AV. We started calling ourselves the Forum Militia, but since everyone didn’t haunt the forums, we went with Stormpike Militia (SM). When we had even numbers, we stomped Hydra with DAS BOOT, which I streamed for posterity. That’s where we’re at now, doing premade AV mostly trying to ferret out Hydra, but since they specifically said they wouldn’t queue on the days WE queue, it’s been harder to run into them.
However one night we SURPRISE-QUEUED into them on a Monday, and gave them a stomping. Boosh. Anyway.
So back to arena, got 10 or 11 wins in a row with Deacon, then got exploded by a hunter/boomie team and went to play AV. Not because of the loss, mind you, but I had to do some thinking about my play.
And bless the chat in Ashran.
THIS IS WHY YOU DIDN’T GET A HEAL
I’d like to think, that other than ranting and raving here, I’m pretty calm in game. I don’t throw things or scream or whatever. But man. When someone pulls an Ironclaw/Cinor/Frostrated I see red so fast my head spins.
Someone named Danish in my new guild was forming a group for Ashran, I left mine and joined them. Only… one person was doing arena. One was in a bg. Uh, looks like we’re not ready.
He says to queue as merc, so I do. None of the party is in there, and about 60 seconds later Danish decides to leave and starts forming up for battlegrounds.
I’ll run losing bgs/pvp with people for a decent amount of time, but holy fuck if you rage quit on me, we’re going to have problems.
