This post is really not informative or fun or anything at all, it’s just a happy one for me, because this tint, and this weapon, represents something for me in game, that I worked hard to obtain.
It’s something that reminds me, that despite not being “up there” with all the hardcore raiders anymore, I still find ways to improve and put my skills to good use.
Having no time for raiding anymore can leave one feeling a little “out of the loop” overall, at least for me, but these solo challenges are really something I look forward to do.
It’s just the way I am wired. I cannot walk away, until I beat it. If the game tells me it’s possible, then I want to do it. I have to. If some say it cannot be done without the right item level, I don’t care, I find a way; Proving Grounds, Mage Tower Challenge, Deaths of Chromie.
It’s been a while, since I completed the Mage Tower Challenge, but I have had my eye on this particular tint, since it got datamined; back when we didn’t even know, where from or how it would be obtained.
The tint I like the most of all 4 versions. Well, I like all of them. But variety is good, and I am very fond of purple. Even though its not exactly that Druidish. Anyway!
Here are all four version of the weapon is. Bottom left is the original. Upper left is from killing every Legion Dungeon Boss. Upper right is from killing Heroic Kil’Jaeden. And lower right is from winning 10 rated Battlegrounds.
I thought I would never get to obtain that one, though; The one that requires 10 rated Battleground wins. (The one that just requires you to kill every Legion Dungeon Boss is here)
See, I used to love PvP, but time is short now, and it’s no longer something, I prioritize. My Prestige Level is just at level 1 too, so…Yeah.
But, I ran into a very friendly player in a Random Battleground by coinsidence, another healer, and we started to team up. What a difference it made.
Two healers looking after each other, I was done dying right away; in fact, I spotted several enormous Tauren who just bounced back and forth between us, not knowing which one to focus.
That really got my taste for Battlegrounds back, and I got courageous enough to enter the rated Battleground scene. It was not easy to get accepted into groups, and the groups that did invite me, didn’t exactly screen well, obviously 😉
But long (and frustrated…) story short, I just managed the 10 wins. Something I thought would have been impossible to achieve, without higher Prestige levels and what not. #LegionPvPNewb…I know.
But here we are, and I made it!
And how I adore it so…So excuse me, while I go a little crazy on the screenshot sharing.
Now I can take a deep breath, and step back from the rated Battleground environment for a while…
Sometimes, it was like adventuring back 10 years; People yelling in CAPS at each other, leaving in the middle, absolute mayhem. Well, just like the Random Battkegrounds I guess, just a little less of it :p
Oh, good times…
I just have to add this; during some of my…struggles, in the Rated Battlegrounds, I came across the most weirdest of bugs. No one spoke up about it, so I originally thought, it was just some kind of new PvP Brawl. But is it!?
I’m not sure how visible it is here, it’s the only screnshot of it I took, but somehow, I got transfered over to the Horde team, ressurected at their graveyard – even my travel form version was that of Taurens.
You can see me at their graveyard in this screenshot, as well as the red icon, showing I am Horde. What is that!?
As said, no one in my team spoke up about it, it only happened in Warsong Gulch and only two times. But it sure got me puzzled.
Oh, I actually did manage to take another screenshot (not sure why I didn’t think of that, I was just focused on winning!) and even though its a bit dark, you can see me in travelform here. NOT the Alliance version is it. now? So weird.
And I was fighting Night Elves, Dwarves, what not. And when the Alliance won, I lost.
I don’t get it!
Anyone can enlighten me? Bug? Intended? Me?!
Gosh…Ok. (Odd though, it says, that it does not count in Rated Battlegrounds, but it sure did the other night…)
It could easily be a PvP Brawl though! I was so confused having to capture the other flag and run to the opposite site and what not, since it has been so long, since I PvP’ed on any serious level.
Now I know what caused it! Pretty funny to try actually…Oh, no, now I have to go back, because reasons…
Anyway…Off track…Good night and thank you so for visiting 🙂
