Let’s Get Back in the Game Maverick!
What a difference a battlegroup can make.
In three months on the Retaliation Battlegroup, I managed to pick up a little over 3,000 honorable kills.
In one week back on the Nightfall Battlegroup, I picked up 2,000 honorable kills.
My PVP spree this week saw me cross the 30,000 HK threshhold, and earn the following PVP achievements:
City Defender; and
This week also marked my best friend Chris’ return to the game after a month-long hiatus. (Although Karinthanis and Wrathien haven’t made the jump from Retaliation back to Nightfall just yet, Chris still has a few level 80s on Undermine that he can play.)
I also want to say thank you, thank you, thank you to my 2s partner Fayé for coming over to Undermine with me when I decided to leave Area-52. PVPing just wouldn’t be quite the same without you.
All in all it was a freakin awesome week for me in the World of Warcraft.
I also got confirmation that my decision to leave my raiding guild was the right choice for me. My ex-guildies spent several nights in the Ruby Sanctum on both 10 and 25 man (RealID stalking ftw!), and the fact that I wasn’t there really didn’t bother me. Truth be told, I was actually happy that I wasn’t there banging my head against the new bosses.
(I did jump in a 10-man pug on Undermine just to see the new raid though. We managed to clear all of the mini bosses, but called it after about 4 attempts on the big boss. Having seen the fights, I strongly suspect that I won’t be going back there again.)
For the next 10 days however, I am going to be AFK while on vacation in the foothills of Southwestern Pennsylvania. I am looking forward to spending a week with my best friends, and enjoying some good food, good beer, good conversation, and some good cigars too. Rest assured, when I get back from vacation, I will be very very ready to get back in the game.
