Today's daily was Arathi Basin, I got it done on Wranngar on the second try. In the first battle I got grouped with a really bad group and it was all we could do to hold one node. In the second battle we did better and held 3 nodes the whole time and 4 nodes for part of the time. We ended up winning by around 600. I got the 11g99s, 419 honor and 3 Arathi Basin Mark of Honor for completing it. Then I went and did some AV's. That was kind of a mistake. I was in 7 battles, 2 wins and 5 losses. Stupidity was running rampant in AV today between capping and holding SHGY and going for Galv first. I have given up on people learning that when half the offense goes for Galv at the start, and the Horde are guarding the choke point by IBGY, the rest of the offense falls apart. I guess they will never learn. For some reason they are willing to give up 600+ honor for a win to kill Galv and get his 63 honor, it boggles the mind. To give you an idea of the caliber of players in there today, there was a lot of calling to take down Drek when we had 3 and 4 towers still up. That should give you an idea of how much of a clue these people had. It is weird, this is WSG weekend but from the quality of people in AV you would swear it was AV weekend. We won both of our battle by killing Drek while the Horde won most of theirs on reinforcements due to the turtle that resulted from either going for Galv first or holding SHGY. As usual we were plagued by AFK in all the AV battlegrounds. Blizzard really needs to get on the ball and do something about this problem. On the plus side I got a Gold Medallion in my mailbox today. It is a pet based on Competition I guess. I have attached a screen shot of it.
