I'm SO Digging Wintergrasp

As those of you who know me (or listened to my interview on TNB) are aware, I should never PvP. Ever. I'm the world's worst sport.

The only thing I'm worse at than losing: winning.

Well, compadres, I have discovered Wintergrasp.

*queue harp music*

And omfg is this fun! I still have no clue what I'm doing, but it seems to matter less than in the standard Battlegrounds. My strategy thus far varies little from Offense to Defense. While the Horde is attempting to take the keep, I'm typically on the back of someone's vehicle spamming Seeds into the crowd. If the vehicle blows up - I Howl and run.

On Defense, however, I'm even sneakier. I'll edge out onto a balcony and start dropping DoTs on the heads of the Alliance below, giggling madly. While I may be baiting the enemy away from the good players on my side, I'm unconvinced that I'm making any kind of a difference in the outcome of battle. I'm enjoying myself profusely. And isn't that what really matters?

No. Not even I believe that. Epics, that's what matters. I've only hit up maybe 6 battles total, and just last night I was able to go drop 15 WG Marks of Honor on new boots. Since I was shopping, I also hit up the PvP vendor in Orgrimmar and discovered some nice bracers on sale for only 31.6k honor. Bargain!

I'm loving the buff we get from winning, I'm digging the Eternals farmed up afterwards, and I'm totally considering actually learning how to defend myself against the other classes in one-on-one combat. Yeah... I just might.

Congratulations on your new items! :)

I like wintergrasp too, but I don't get very much done as a protection warrior.

I found your blog through the twisted nether blogcast and I mostly just wanted to say that I think it's great. :)
