I realised I probably have mentioned “Having fun” too many times lately. I could just be saying” It’s all fun” because if I say it enough I can convince myself that I am having fun, but no there are still things I am genuinely feeling ‘gleeful’ about. So I should explain.
I enjoy a challenge, however, fun, rip snorting, unbridled passionate glee that brings out a very predator nature in myself.
That is currently Pvp at the moment for me - it aint got nothing on no boss kill.
As much as I like winning ( and I need those HK’s 73k/100k Hk’s for “Of the Alliance title” ) It’s not fun beating on people more than a few times when your obviously the superior party. When we are winning I don’t stand underneath the graveyard often for the farm. I’m on my bike slightly midfield looking for escapees, or as I called out the other night. ” They are leaking!”
I love hunting down errant strays that try to escape the initial zerg clean up. I have fun locking you up as you try to sneak up the side. I will mindvision you to see what corner you are hiding in, if you’re comming down tunnel or graveyard, and I will hunt you down, and eat into your health pool. It makes me feel powerful, like a goddess, holding a squishy bug in the palm of your hands. I AM SHADOW PRIEST HEAR ME………..

This special ‘fightclub’ ( can I talk about fight club?) of a chat channel that was lucky enough to get invited to is cross guild /includes randoms like myself, and when a call to arms ” Who wants to do WSG” gets asked.
I get more from the challenge of a good game where they fight back, and queqing as a server based premade means that your more likely to face full, or partial premades, and we have had some awesome games because of it. Fun for me has never been about getting top damage, or killing blows, or honor farming. It’s using all your tools of your party at your disposal, Dps, heals, dispels, cc – being an intricate web of destruction and communication.
Of course I don’t always win a 1v1 - I don’t have much arena skill, and most of my arena experience was done as disc, but I am doing ok, its also been good to know as well when you need help your team will come running and vice versa.
The irony is that most of these people doing the server based premades are from pve guilds, and I have seen more requests for retro runs from people in my guild then pvp requests and we are supposed to be a pvp guild. Maybe when cata comes out it will all be sorted out.
