Another fairly uneventful Weekend of Warcraft. Ran through the Blood Furnace without too much trouble, undoubtedly due to my inspiring leadership and masterful tactics (either that, or because we averaged level 66 for a level 61-63 dungeon. I’m thinking it was the tactics, though, we wouldn’t have had a chance without me running around periodically shouting “engage kill mode: EXTREME!”) Only a couple of stealth detecting mobs, so I was merrily sapping away, only coming ever-so-slightly unstuck once when the druid said “You do know you’re not in stealth, right?”, just as the three Orcs who’d been watching my decidedly unsubtle approach started poking me with spears.
I also popped into the new Battleground, Eye of the Storm, for the first time as it was bonus honour weekend. It’s essentially Arathi Basin (there are four towers to capture, the more towers you hold the faster you acquire “victory points”, first team to a certain number of points (2000, possibly) wins) with a dash of Warsong Gulch (there’s also a flag that spawns in the middle of the ground, taking it back to one of your towers gains extra points). It’ll be interesting to see how this one plays; first impressions are that it’s nicely frenetic, but that might just be the novelty as both teams run around randomly shouting “AAAAAAAAHHHHHH!” and falling off cliffs. I’ll certainly head back there in a couple of levels time for a bit more tower-capturing fun.
