Maybe its the battlegroup, luck, or the bracket 60-70 but the BG’s I have been slotting in-between dungeons on my Warrior have been great xp gain ventures for me, and have proven better for XP then Random Dungeons. I also seem to be winning more then loosing – 5/5 AV victories. 8/13 AB and not shown on that table is 1/2 wsg.
One AB match we held 3 bases for a long time. We defended the onslaught of the horde – pushed back their offense, and while they abandoned BS to try to take LM from us, we snuck in behind, and capped it – forcing them back to defend their position. It was a slow victory, but we won, and we did it by teamwork, and communication.
I am seeing a hunger to win in these lower level BG’s that I don’t see much in level 80′s ones. Besides getting positive – gooey – I kicked the horde butt feeling you get from winning a BG. Lobie Bg’s give you Honor, Rep, and XP, while at 80 your just after honor and rep. We level faster when we win.
My first pvp experience in WSG as a Prot Warrior when I was under 20 was rather depressing. Run up to target getting pummelled by range. Have no rage – smack them once, and die. Getting charge in Prot stance has made Bging a lot more fun.
I had a purpose for doing BG’s . I had my first lust for Shield – 13k honor Grand Marshals Aegis not only does it seem to be an awesome stat’d shield for my level 65 now – It is shiny. As in Really shiny. In the sunlight in game it has this sheen to it that is dazzling. It’s rather factionotic ( I know this is not a word, but was trying to come up with something similar to patriotic.) and see I am keeping my Victory count on the side of my shield.
