For those who have been reading and following me for a short or extended period of time, they will have probably noticed that I essentially ignore the PVP aspects of WOW. I’ve always been a fan of PVE and achievements as described in my about me section, you could say I’m a PVE Hero, PVP Zero (har har). The problem for me is, being as that I am an achievement whore, I have essentially exhausted majority of places to obtain more points which has left me with nothing left but to do PVP achievements, specifically Arena.
It doesn’t help that my battlegroup (Retaliation) is god awful and Alliance seem to lose majority of bg’s. It’s really not a fun or happy place to be as it tends to generate more stress then it relieves. While I did do the PVP grind way back in the day, that was a very long time ago, and the game was very different back then. Since then, PVP has evolved and Arena has emerged within the game and quite frankly I have no experience, desire or interest to participate in them. However, I digress as I have no choice but to try and figure out how to Arena if I want to continue pursuing my whoring of achievement points. It feels completely foreign and I have no flippin clue what I’m doing half the time which is quite strange considering I’ve played this game for almost 6 years.
So last week, we started a 5’s team (no daddy not there, no it wasn’t my idea for a name) and so far so good. Perhaps its just that the popularity of Arena has died out but it really seemed to me like the quantity of teams were few and far (probably a 5’s thing). Really good or really bad, there didn’t really seem to be a happy medium. I assume it is probably better in 3’s which is where most people play these days. First week has netted Hot Streak, Mercilessly Dedicated and Last Man Standing.
If anyone has any suggestions on information resources feel free to drop me a shout in a comment. Any advice would be welcome.
Time to teach a kitty new tricks!
ps. Playing as a Resto Druid! Feral PVP will have to wait another day…
