No WoW for a week, as I went back to the States to visit my family. (Well, to be completely honest, I did buy a copy to try to get them hooked, but since they’re on dialup, we couldn’t download the patch.)
Since my return, aside from taking Ravven to Naxx a couple of times, I’ve mainly been PvPing in Alterac Valley with Kitsunecho. God, do I love AV. Part of it probably has to do with the fact that for some reason Alliance tends to win in AV and lose in WSG and AB, which naturally affects my enjoyment of it, but it’s also because this is what raiding should feel like, and never does. I love the mad dash, the feeling of being in real battles…if you could bring a premade and have TeamSpeak, I’d be in heaven. There’s not enough communication, too many leaders and not enough followers, but still it’s the most fun that I’ve had in ages. Yesterday I was in a battle that lasted almost two hours, and I had to leave the battleground as Naxx was starting in five minutes – disappointing, but I had something like 546 HKs.
I need to start grinding on Ravven…Naxx repair bills of 25+g per raid night are going to wipe me out awfully fast.
