Premade fever

We did some guild premades Saturday and the group ranged from eight to 12 people. Not all were guildies (Hai2u Aryx and Xblue!), but friends of guild are always welcome here :) Don’t hesitate to ask to join us in PVP.

Anyway, we initially were going to just do AV. As a perverted test, I was going to see how long it would really take us to get into the other battlegrounds.  To my intense surprise, we got in near immediately to Basin:

The same happened for a few WSG games, and it seemed premades were back. Unfortunately we were fighting pugs the whole time. It made me wonder if Blizzard had stealth fixed it.

Alas, we queued for WSG again, and the timer climbed from 23 minutes to 38 minutes to more than an hour.

We didn’t take the queue, which to me explains why we had faced so many pugs in the previous games. Poor pugs. They’re still getting stomped by premades because the premades don’t like waiting an hour or more to kill people. Man, I really feel for those puggers…. Oh wait… Hmm.. This isn’t working…

You can’t expect me to feel sorry for them can you? I didn’t think so.

We went into AV to mix it up old school style! First we defended Galv, which always breaks up the Alliance charge.

PVP with Pirates day!

EDIT: Better download link to pirate mod here.

Since the 2.4 patch we’ve had to be creative to enjoy ourselves as a guild in PVP.

I thought I’d combine our love for fishing with PVP. Today and for the past few day’s I’ve fished up about 100 Deviate fish and sent them to Xorena to cook Savory Deviate Delights. These fish, when consumed, turn you either into a pirate or a ninja. We are aiming for pirates.

To complete the pirate disguise, everyone should get a parrot pet from Booty Bay or farm one somehow, AH or what have you. Please also download the Talk like a Pirate mod from curse, here.

If anyone can think of other ways to make us more pirate-y, post on the forums. I’m aiming for Saturday afternoon for this event.

Hope to see you there!

Patch 2.4 is live! PVP and fishing improvements

Some great changes for PVP and for fishing! Have a look. Fishing is below the fold.

Here are the PVP related changes, from the patch downloader, some bolded for emphasis:

  PvP
– Diminishing returns on honor for kills is being eliminated.
- Honor will now be instantly calculated, and available for player use.

- Players that have the resurrection sickness debuff will be worth no
honor.
– Added new PvP daily quests that send players to Halaa and the Spirit Towers of the Bone Wastes. These quests are available for Alliance and Horde at their respective local quest hubs.

- Arenas
- Personal Rating: The amount a player’s personal rating can climb
above his or her team’s rating is now limited.
- The benefits of drinking out of combat have been delayed while in the Arena. It will now take four seconds before the full benefit of the
mana regeneration will come into effect.
– Queue times for arena matches have been reduced. Players will now be able to enter matches faster than previously.
- Shadow Sight now increases damage taken by 5% rather than dealing damage over time. Duration has been reduced from 21 seconds to 15 seconds.
- Players feared outside of the Arena (through the world or outside
the arena walls) will now be teleported back to the center of the
arena map.

- Battlegrounds
- If a player dies 50 times or more in a battleground, they will no
longer be worth honor for the remainder of that battle.
- When you first enter a battleground, messages about other players
joining the battleground will be linked together for the first
minute. You will see a message in AV like “28 players joined” rather
than a line for each player that joined. After the first minute, it
will work as it always has. In addition, all of the messages about
other players leaving the battleground and getting marks of honor
once the battleground is complete have been removed.
- Battleground Rune Buffs:Speed, Restoration, and Berserking buffs
received from battleground runes will no longer cause Stealth or
Prowl to break.
- Alterac Valley
-Captain Balinda Stonehearthnow Stonehearth can no longer be
interrupted, silenced, or have her spells slowed. In addition, her
water elemental cannot be banished, and does increased damage.
Vanndar Stormpike and Captain Balinda Stonehearth have had their
health totals reduced to match the health totals of Drek’Thar and
Captain Galvangar.
- Warmasters/marshals in Alterac Valley now increase each other’s
maximum health and damage by 25%. This is a stacking effect.
Horde players will now start the battle closer to Drek’Thar and
Frostwolf Keep.
- There is now a Join as Party option.

- Warsong Gulch
- When both flags are held, the flag carriers will receive 50% increased damage done to them after approximately 10 minutes and 100% increased damage after approximately 15 minutes.
- Flag carriers can now be tracked 45 seconds after picking up the
flag.

Saturday WSG and fishing report

We had a rather impressive performance for the few games we played Saturday.

Y’all killed tons of people!

We also won pretty quickly too, with Kinare and Aahz running flags.

That’s some fast honor!

Finally we’re being noticed for another of our talents:

Nice catch, Chandra!

FYI My old car died, so I’ve been doing a lot of research to get a new (to me) one. My apologies for not being online very much.

“I am a fishing GOD” — Organdonar

Goofing off and being his usual self, Organdonar was jumping around on the rock formations outside of the Org PVP queue spot. He went to talk on vent to Pylith when suddenly he heard a noise…. “Zzzzzzzz… PLOP!”

Yes, boys and girls, apparently you can fish from the rock formation across the road from the pond! Considering our recent obsession with fishing I thought this was appropriate.

You can submit your own screenshots and descriptions, just ask Perle in game for her e-mail address. (Sorry not going to post here!).

AB weekend update, Friday action

After a long, hard day of working all week, many of us were eager to kill some Alliance. We banded together and headed to AB. This is some of our favorite battlegrounds. Why? Because when you use teamwork, you can accomplish anything, even beating a BG that the horde usually loses through stupidity and inattention.

At first the queues were a bit long. We usually queue from Orgrimmar to prevent Organdonar from having fishing withdrawals. The queues at one point were around 7 minutes, so many of us took up the practice.

When the going gets tough, the tough… fish

But eventually we got into AB and after that we won every game, usually with a 4-5 cap.
