I am currently working on gathering around 25k honor points in order to pick up the S2 caster staff once S4 hits and S2 will be purchasable through honor points. This morning I was at around 18.5k, with about 7-8k still to go.
– forget Warsong Gulch. It is not winnable unless you are in a pre-made. If they know what needs to be done.
– forget Arathi Basin. Same reasons.
– Eye of the Storm: meh. Sometimes I am in good groups that actually win (I have even seen 4-caps OMG), but not enough honor points. Takes too long.
Which leaves Alterac Valley. This one is usually a hit-or-miss. Either you win the BG in the first 10 minutes or you have a 90% chance of wasting your time and losing it. There is the slim chance that the tables can be turned so Alliance wins an AV by reinforcements, but that is a rare case. I was lucky and have been part of some really good PuGs that just kill Galv, take IBT, TP while another group rushes to RH and takes the Frostwolf towers as well, then we gather and kill Drek. I think that happens to me about 1 in 5 games, so it is not the worst ratio. And you get between 350 and 550 honor points, so this seems to be the fastest and most efficient way to rack up the points I need.
I am still looking forward to getting all the points I need though and then to be done with it. This gets old pretty quick.
On other news, my guild merged with another guild. This resulted in almost 30 70s to be online last night with one SSC run and 1 ZA run going at the same time. Wow. This is definitely promising and I am looking forward to us getting the details hashed out (run schedule etc).
I personally did not like the fact that officers decided to run SSC and ZA at the same time. I for example would love to run SSC and other 25 man raids, but I need badges, and ZA drops way more in terms of that.
I would say that it would make more sense to have the ‘cool’ runs going on dedicated nights.. 25 man raid and 10 mans separated. Sure you can have 2 10 mans going at the same time, but don’t mix 25 mans with 10 mans.. A 25 man raid is much more srs bsns, and I think people would rather go do 10 mans then 25 mans, so if given the choice, the 25 man raid loses out. My theory.
Either way. More people means more chances to do things in the first place, so let us just see where this is heading.
