Growing Up Horde, Part III

So my undead mage hit 60 this weekend, along with the priest I have levelled with every day since level 1. We dinged turning in our Ramstein quest to Nathanos Blightcaller, went to train, and came back to practice our mad duo skills on Duskwing and Bolegore (aka The Corpulent One).

The journey to 60 as Horde has been incredibly fun, but I’m not sure if it’s because of the faction switch or the class switch. Both made a huge impact on the game for me, and I’m very happy with where I’ve ended up as far as both of those things are concerned. I guess the big question for me now is PvP or PvE — where do I want to focus? Only time will tell.

We’re guildless right now because we just can’t seem to find a place where we fit, although our departure ends up being a matter of principle rather than personality (the first had leadership which made decisions affecting the guild as a whole with no discussion with guild members, which I wholeheartedly disagree with; the second decided that bugging out a ZG boss to beat him was worth a shot, and I have no desire to progress through endgame content with a guild who thinks that cheesing an encounter — IN ZG — for free epix is all right). I guess you run into that no matter what side you’re on, though.

Regardless, I’m Horde for good. The little challenge that Jonas presented ended up completely changing the way I see and play the game, and so I thank you. (You could work on that delivery a little, though.)

    I think I’m facing the admission that I like it on Horde. Although I only have a low-level character right now, I love her, I love the “feel” on that side, and I think I want to stay. Not that I’d abandon two high-level Alliance characters, but the ones I play, and new ones I roll, will be Horde.

    Although, there is the Draenei…damn cool race. Hmmmn.

    Once you go Troll, you never reroll

    Strength, Honour, Blood, Thunder, Wisdom and Might.

    For the Horde!

    I started Alliance on the day the game came out but that was ONLY because my IRL friends rolled Alliance. I knew, in my heart, that I was Horde.

    I paused on leveling my Orc Shaman at 47 to avoid burnout when I moved my Dwarven Warrior over to a PvE server with some co-workers and began raiding and honour leveling. It was a lot of fun getting back into Warrior, tanking and pwning Shamans and Rogues in PvP.

    But once I hit Knight in a matter of weeks and once I got decent gear (enough to MT Ony, AQ, ZG and MC), that is all I play my Warrior for.

    Now I am back to my Shaman. As great as my guild is, there is something wonderful about the Horde. I ding twice on Monday after two successful ZF runs. It will be a matter of time until I can honour grind in AV from 51 to 70, pwning squishies and being scared of MS Warriors.

    May your blades never dull.
