Have I mentioned today how much Shadow Priests Pwn?

Well then, here you go – at 43 in a BG with mostly lvl 47, 48, and 49 I’m the #3 death dealer, and with only one death on my own. Can you say Pwnd?

STV gankfest (Benny Hill style)!

The next time one of my characters gets gang-ganked in Stranglethorn Vale, I’m just going to smile and think of it all as it might be set to Benny Hill music (like so):

Thanks for the laugh, rustedgate.com! (Here’s the link to the bigger, badder Google Video page version.)

Death Before Dishonor?

It takes a long time to climb the honor ladder, and these days, most people seem to count on Battlegrounds to give them the boost needed for higher rank, nicer gear and, I guess, realmwide fame (or infamy). But many of those among us who remember what it was like before the so-called honor system was installed miss the days of random world PvP — when giant raids of roaming troublemakers would pick fights in an opposing faction’s hub.

Sure, it still happens, but not to the extent it once did. Why? The concept of the Dishonorable Kill (or DK, which, in this case, doesn’t stand for Dead Kennedys) throws a little disincentive into the mix. Blizzard warns that a DK, existing as a sort of intangible mark on your permanent record, is a bad thing, and that it will count against you when honor is tallied. But how much does killing a random civilian here and there really matter?

Here’s a guy who aimed to find out that exact thing. To slip from rank 11 to rank 1: How long does it take? Complete with an assessment of the current state of world PvP and what Blizzard should do about it.

16 vs. 4 in AB? What the deuce?

As if we weren’t outnumbered enough, I guess Blizzard figured The Alliance just needed that extra push to defeat us poor Horde-ites in 6 minutes instead of 7 (even though AB is supposed to be capped at 15):

Come to think of it…6 minutes? How did we even last that long against such odds? I’m betting on our pure might. Hey! Look! I (Mawdryn) actually managed to kill someone on the opposing team! We’ll forget that I had to die three times for that kind of pleasure.
