TTIF

Thank Thrall it’s Friday!

In fact, I thank Thrall for being awesome every day.  I really do!

Anyway, as some of you may have guessed from my last post, I have been leveling my hunter.  And although I did manage to tame an awesome monkey last weekend, I also had a couple of WTF moments.

Also from my last post, I had indicated that I was going to do some adventuring in Winterspring.  I’m not entirely sure why, but I enjoy the zone for the most part.  Of course, some of the quests that you’re doing involve the Timbermaw.  And some of your quests, although given in Winterspring, take you back through Timbermaw Hold and into Northern Felwood.  Okay, no problem! 

Well, no problem, if you ignore the fact that all the mobs you need are dead because there’s a level 80 Warrior farming rep.  He told me to “Quest elsewhere,” but considering the zone if for questing and not farming rep, I just kept going.  Fortunately, as a hunter, tracking humanoids gave me a bit of an advantage finding mobs before the warrior would one-shot them.  So I would send my pet in and tag the bad Furbolgs.  This aggrivated the warrior because I was clearly tagging “his” mobs:

Quest rewards are now a ban, apparently.

You can’t tell from the screenshot, but I was quivering in my boots.  Honest.  No sarcasm here.  I definitely didn’t /ignore him and I surely didn’t stay there until I had finished my quest.

Well, moving along…

One of the other things I dabble in while I’m questing is some good ol’ fashioned PvP.  I’m not very good, but I enjoy the change of pace.  I usually just play in Alterac Valley.  I’m not sure if it’s because of Drek’Thar is almost as awesome as Thrall, or if I just like scale of the battleground because it feels more epic.  Anyway, if you haven’t played, there are two ways to win:  Kill the opposion faction’s General or kill all their reinforcements.  There are some finer aspects of the battleground, but that’s neither here nor there.  The point is, if the battle is resulting in a stalemate of sorts – that is, neither faction is really advancing and both are fighting in one of the zone’s bottlenecks – the only means of victory is through killing the reinforcements.  And if your faction has 120 reinforcements and the opposing faction has 60, the chances are that your faction will be victorious.  But not always:

Let's cut it closer, next time.

Ah well, can’t win them all, I suppose.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend, all ye faithful readers! 🙂
