The evening started out with a group invite over Ventrillo with a few guys in the guild, Volatile. I have friends within the guild and am hoping to become part of them. Of course I am up for PvP; anytime.
We headed out to Morgan's Vigil in the Burning Steppes, an Alliance hot spot with no guards and a flight master. Unfortunately, I missed the major action. By the time I got there, the Horde had already been overrun by about fifteen alliance. We were only four strong so we stuck out and about trying to get what we could. What we ended up with was a bunch of Alliance steam rolling us for thirty minutes. We managed to get about eight kills in.
Anyways, we lost two people and it was down to just my shaman and a warlock. We started by chasing down some solo runners here and there. Then we headed back to Morgan's Vigil. Luck was on our side and there was only three Alliance left; two hunters and a priest. A tough two on three fight, but I had confidence we could get it done.
The priest was first up and he proved little more than a spam healer. He went down. The warlock had feared one hunter off, but the second was laying waste to the warlock. A few heals and the warlock started unleashing some massive damage. I will never doubt a warlock's damage potential again. Two critical hits in a row and the first hunter went down. The second hunter was a pushover at this point. We finished at about 25% health each. A good fight and good contribution points for us.
Dinner called and I was gone.
This is why WoW still holds me. For all the times I am ready to smash my keyboard, there is an equally good number of times that I feel like I've just conquered the world. With a slim hope that PvP rewards will be worth the time I am spending, I will stick with WoW. WoW PvP is not perfect, but it sure can be fun when it wants to be.
