Contrary to my tag line I like hordies. I play on the Alliance side and have no desire to be horde, but thankfully there are those who play horde. I play on Anetheron, a Player vs Player (PVP) server. Think how boring WoW would be if there weren’t two fractions competing? That’s why I like hordies. Both the Alliance and the Horde bring a variety of fun to game for the other side that I’m sure just isn’t there on a Player vs Environment server. Playing on a PVP server keeps you on your toes. Danger lurks around every corner.
Any how I don’t do a great deal of PVP per say. I do battle grounds in my PVE gear and do relatively well. I don’t do Arena PVP. However I do like fighting hordies out and about. That’s when it counts because you have to go to gave yard and do that miserable ghost thing bumping into trees on the way back to your body if you get killed. In battlegrounds and arena you quickly respawn intact.
Generally speaking I attack hordies on sight; if I think it’s a fight I can win. 🙂 Now I don’t attack low level hordies nor do I camp. Really its not fun killing someone who can’t put up a fight. Once my 22 lvl alt lock was killed by lvl 72 hordie camping on the rooftops in Darkmore; completely uncool. I got my main and I did camp him for a bit for the obvious reasons. The exception to my code of conduct is Death Knights. I kill them regardless of level for no reason other than they are DKs. (Yes, I have issues with Blizzard and their pet DK class. Another post perhaps.)
On my server the relationship between the horde and alliance is funny. Sometimes it is all out war and other times peaceful. For example many times when doing the fishing daily I’ve stood right next to hordies and fished. When you finished the quest you left, no problems. Perhaps it’s the fisherman’s code. However there are two hordies, a lock and a rogue, who seem to follow the fishing daily around to attack alliance fishermen. I guess they need someone to forget to switch from their pole to their weapon to win a fight. When they do this it generally erupts into a war for both alliance and horde players trying to do the daily.
So for all you horde players, thanks for being horde!
Oh speaking of horde I finally got around to doing the quest “For the Alliance.” It was great fun. We had a full raid of 60 and went into the deepest darkest holes in horde cities and brought the light to Warchief Thrall in Orgrimmar, Cairne Bloodhoof in Thunder Bluff, Sylvanas Windrunnr in the Under City and Lor’themar Theron in Silvermon. By the time we got to the last boss in Silvermoon we were getting a little sloppy and lazy. No longer worried about hordies sending an alarm our rally point was right in front of the entrance to Silvermoon. A level 5 horde rogue came out and saw us. I wonder what he thought seeing 60 alliance players at the front gate lol.
Oh, this Monday we are taking our first shot at downing the Lich King in 10-man ICC!!!!! His rein of tyranny will finally come to an end. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Don’t suffer the horde!
