Not a good night for the Alliance in AV tonight. AV was the daily today and I did it on Wranngar. It took 4 battles to get a win so I could complete the daily and it was the last win I saw. I fought in 14 battles, 1 win and 13 losses. I am not sure what was going on tonight, if I was just getting bad groups or what but it was some of the saddest playing I have ever seen. I am not going to go into detail except to say that someone asked if you get your honor as soon as you earn it now. The answer to that is yes, it has been like that for 6 months or more so that tells you how much battleground experience they have. Maybe they waited until 70 to do battlegrounds. I only had 257 lifetime kills on Wranngar when I hit level 70 but I had a lot of experience from playing Gomorra in the battlegrounds. And yes, when I started on Gomorra I was just as green as they are lol. I guess it is too easy to be critical. Anyway the groups and players were really bad so I just tried to come out on the top of the damage/kill list. I am always in the top 10 and usually in the top 5 in AV.
Not too bad a night for the Alliance in EoS tonight. I fought in 15 battles on Wranngar, 11 wins and 4 losses. It was back the way it should be with us winning all the time in there :). The 4 losses were just 4 really bad groups I got into. We were lucky to hold one tower in those 4 battles and a few times we ended up on the rock. In the 11 wins we were dominating. I think there were only one or 2 where it was even close and by close I mean 400 points or so. We had four or five 4 caps in those battles. We had the Horde trapped on their rock and held them there. It was also the daily battleground today but it actually took me 3 battles to get it done, we lost the first 2 I was in. I also did 2 AV's, 1 win, 1 loss. We got the win on reinforcements and it wasn't really a good Alliance group, it was just a bad Horde group. Someone took SHGY in both battles if that tells you anything.
I helped a guildy, Arkantose, out tonight on Wranngar to get his level 60 Epic Paladin mount. To do that we had to go into Stratholme to get some holy water, from there, after he turned in and got the next quest, we went into Dire Maul West and killed the big tree in there. From there we had to go into Scholomance for the last part of the quest chain. In Scholo we had to summon and defeat a Deathknight to complete the chain at which time he received his mount. It took about half the night but was a lot of fun. Any of the old 60 instances are a lot of fun when you are 70 :). He was lucky, he got his right at 60, Gomorra didn't do his Dreadsteed (Warlock Epic Mount) quest until he was level 70, I just got the Reins of the Black War Tiger from the battlegrounds for him at level 62. I only did the Dreadsteed quest to have it because, as a Warlock, I should. I don't ride it much, I prefer the Tiger. For Wranngar it was a lot easier, his level 60 racial mount is also a tiger and I just went and bought one.
