WAR RvR and WoW PvE rockin'!
Part of Keen's
adventure in Adventure Logs, MMORPG, WAR, WoW
I've had a lot of playtime during the Thanksgiving break thus far and
I've spent it between WAR and WoW. It's time for a bit of an
update/adventure log of my experiences in these two very different games.
Online Adventure Log: WAR is finally everywhere!
Happy Fun Guyz and my Shaman have been officially moved to Dark Crag.
Many members of HFG returned to play together on our new server over the past
couple of days with hopes that it would reignite our excitement for the our
Destruction characters. Most of us abadoned our characters in the T4 range
when we made the switch to Phoenix Throne Order. While we still like those
characters, and some of us still play them on occasion, we've always yearned for
the opportunity to continue our Destruction roots.
Dark Crag is full of players! The T4 RvR areas have all been populated
very heavily with players. This afternoon I was in Dragonwake trying to
take back our keep when we recieved word that another zerg of Destruction was
planning to push Kadrin Valley and flip it into Fortress contention. To
have the numbers we had RvRing in Dragonwake AND another group large enough to
begin flipping another region like that was realy cool to hear. We had a
war going, for the first time, on two fronts.
An interesting observation is that scenarios seem to be popping very slowly
on Dark Crag. This is actually a good sign because of how populated the
RvR areas have become. A buddy of mine (Teleth) pointed out that
it's probably due to the low renown earned by players severel RR's higher than
those they kill. This makes players more enclined to open RvR where they
can get chunks of renown.
Unfortunately, HFG has still not received its transfer level/renown.
I'm quite frustrated by this and hope that after the CSR's are back from their
holiday they'll see to it everything is worked out. This is but a blemish
on the overall positive experience on Dark Crag. With the RvR changes
coming soon things should really start to look up in WAR. I'm anxious for
RvR itemization changes to go in so that I can stop having to worry about this
nagging feeling in the back of my mind to PvE to gear-up.
World of Warcraft Adventure Log: Atmosphere wins
Morkeen in Hellfire
I'm up to level 64 now in WoW and making my way through the content quite
nicely. My partner in crime (Bartlebe, aka Volkmaar) and I started our
experience as newbie DK's (lvl 55) and have worked our way so far through all of
Hellfire Penninsula and almost all of Zangarmarsh. We were around level
62.5 by the time we finished Hellfire and honestly weren't at all sad to see it
behind us. The overall leveling experience there was very painless but the
scenery did grow a bit old... and red... and old. The questing there was
extremely generous to us and we walked away with a few gear upgrades.
