That Pvp Experience – now on my realm.

So I have done something wild and unpredictable.

I am now Zahraah on Blackrock – I transferred my Main and my herb/alch alt off Dath’remar, a safe  PVE realm to a dangerous PVP realm.  If anything I might be able to now document via blog the trails and tribulations of a coddled  Shadowpriest  who finds herself in in a gankfest of a PVP realm.   My little hunter  on Jubie is stuck hiding in Tanaris Inn at 42 because that pvp world was a very dangerous place. “I’m just trying to level man!”  /dies for the 100th time. 

It’s a US realm,  and I have no idea what guild  – if any I will be apping too.  I am determined this time to take my time and do the right thing for the right reasons.  Will feel out my options,  try and do some pugs – do some dailys see how bad a Pvp realm can be.   Merlins robe emptied my coffers a little, and I don’t have the capital to do any Gdkp yet.    Give me a little time, and maybe a little patience and I shall be ok. 

If I don’t like the new realm  I’ll transfer elsewhere.  I have no guilt leaving my newest guild – I didn’t have any attachments,  I tried to feel a little attached over the weekend but it didn’t work, and there is enough on Blackrock/going to Blackrock from my guild that disbanded to make it a better place to be. 

I’ve been rather flakey – I put it down to too much choice – waiting to see what choices other people made.   It’s a measuring cup,  if A, B and C  stays,  but B goes horde on the same server,  and D, E and F go to one server, and G talks about going, and H only has an Alt here.  However then I & J talk about transferring server, K is definitely staying and L  is going to stop raiding.    Who do I stay for ?  Who do I leave for.  “Do what makes you happy” a good friend tells me.  Forcing change is what is making me happy at the moment.

Am I up to standard of a hard cord raiding realm – uh I don’t know.. but I want to see!

My loyalties though  lie with myself.  I got fracked around a little back in early guild hopping days trying to follow the people I had leveled with – and when it came down to it their reasons for leaving didn’t always suit me, and out of some dumb loyalty I still followed –  I found the better experiences when I did my own thing.  So why have I moved servers to be with people I liked playing with? When I have left behind people I liked playing with?

Be the change! 

It’s done though. I’m comitted  for 3 days at the least, looking forward to some attempted gankage – but how about I leave you alone,  and you leave me alone eh?

I managed to do some  Ebon dailys quite safely,  in my Pvp gear however with 940 resil just in case. My first PVP experience was herbing on my alt in the wee hours of the server morning.  A Orc Warlock spotted me and ran through the minefield in Icecrown.  His pet got a smack off before a mine catapolted him backwards, and I mounted up, and watched him bounce around the minefield a little bit.   My mage has no Pvp gear, I can see this herbing thing becoming a problem…..  I think I need to work on her looking a little more intimidating.

    If you have some friends who also transferred to Blackrock then I think you’ll feel more at home there.

    That doesn’t mean you should necessarily join the same guilds that they do. Especially if, as you say, that had not always been the best choice for you and you’re acting out of loyalty only.

    I highly recommend you splurge with Emblems of Conquest and buy a full Deadly Gladiator’s pvp resilience set. Wear that if you want to do dailies or gather herbs. People are much more likely to leave you alone. And if they do attack, you probably won’t die so quickly.

      @Cassandri – Yeah better show my helm again in my pvp set. just so I’m clearly in pvp gear! Am glad I have a decent set. I made a little Alt on there first and sat in trade ‘listening’ too, and noticed everyone got round in their pvp gear – Looking forward to being at War!

    I grew up on Blackrock, as it was originally the default Aussie PvP server, before they introduced the oceanic servers.

    So…. There are heaps of aussie based top shelf raiding guilds there 🙂

    There is a bit of an attitude there as well, I think that just comes with being one of the original and most progressed realms available. You will see what I mean if you haven’t already.
