I only did the daily's on Wranngar today. I did all my daily's in Shattered Sun Staging Area, Throne of Kil'Jaeden and Shadowmoon valley. It didn't take me too long and I made 137g72s. Getting closer to my 300 riding skill :).
Well today's daily battleground was WSG and I just wasn't in the mood to deal with that. I ended up doing 7 AV's on Wranngar. We had 2 wins and 5 losses :(. You can tell it's spring break and the kids are home from school. We had a major turtle at DB in one battle and in another about 25 people went for Galv first. Needless to say those 2 were losses. We had another turtle at SH which also resulted in a loss. One person actually said that the reason the Horde were rezzing at IBGY was because they were defending it and not because it was their forward GY due to the fact that we had SF and the rest of the Alliance were turtling at SH..... Another one said the troops get upgraded by handing in Ram Hides, not armor scraps..... Yep the kiddies are out in force this week. Anyway in that battle the Alliance turtled at SH and gave the Horde DB. And they weren't even defending SH Bunker, Balinda and IWB, they were only defending SH GY. We won one battle on reinforcements and the other by killing Drek. In the one where killed Drek we used the tried and proven rush FWGY capping towers on the way, then we got FWRH, the towers and finally killed Drek after the towers capped. The one we won on reinforcements we capped all the towers but didn't have time to kill Drek although we almost summoned Ivus the Forest Lord but couldn't get enough people to work together to summon. All in all a pretty bad day for the Alliance. Axeelina needs to get another trinket from honor and said she will be doing battlegrounds with me tomorrow after the daily's. I will let you know how we make out in those.
I went back for more :). I did another 5 AB's, 2 wins and 3 losses on Wranngar. It is strange how the Alliance works, on the ones that we won we won by a lot, on the ones we lost we lost by a lot. It really is sad the Alliance can't get it together and achieve some kind of consistency. In one of our wins we had a 4 cap for the whole battle and had a 5 cap for part of it. The other win we had a 3 cap and held it for the whole battle. In AB I usually help capture something then I defend it. I usually go for the Gold Mine or Lumber Mill and in of our wins I helped capture then defended the LM and in the other I helped capture then defended the GM. The Alliance really needs to work on their defense, I saw people ride into a node, claim it, then mount up and ride out, I just can't figure out the logic behind that. In the last battle I was in the only thing we held for any amount of time was the Stables. We had the GM and BS for a little bit but it was mostly ST. Some people wanted to give up and let the Horde win in that one but I have never just let the Horde win anything and I never will. They were worried that they wouldn't get their mark because the server was shutting down for maintenance. I would rather lose the mark than give up and stand there and let the Horde win. The only hope I had in that battle was that no one, Horde or Alliance, would get a mark. Unfortunately the battle ended with 45 seconds left :(. Anyway we had some really good fights and I got a bunch of kills :).
