Arathi Basin. My second attempt at dominating the PvP playing field. Let’s see how it goes!
Okay, I’ve got my Psychic Scream hotkeyed to the Z key (I switched it with Fear Ward on my toolbar for the excursion). I’m all buffed, mounted, ready to rock.
Oh yeah, what’s the objective, again? Flags? No, no, it’s bases in AB! Yeah, that’s right. There are five: the Farm, Lumbermill, Mine, Stables, and Blacksmith. The way the map is set up, the Farm is closest to our base, while the Stables are furthest. There are some great strategy tips here.
I no sooner join the Battlegroup (already in progress) than I see this:
Then a Horde player posts what looks to be a reasonable strategy – we already hold 4 bases, let’s go for the fifth! Apparently they call that a “five-cap” and it’s really good.
I rush the Stables, right into the chaos of fighting at the banner. I start dotting up everyone I can target, until a rogue notices me – BOOM, I fear off the lot of them. By now, other players have been inspired by my bravery and dedication to teamwork and have joined me in the fray. They jump in and finish off the Alliance players I’ve feared, clearing our way. Well, most of our way. Seems they’ve neglected to take care of the rogue who is Backstabbing me mercilessly.
Ah well, it’s part of war, right? Sure it is. Anyway, doesn’t matter. After only 14 minutes of battle, the Horde dominated and Prin walked away with 587 honor (it was also the daily!) and 3x Arathi Basin Mark of Honor. A pretty solid showing by our favorite Shadow Priestess, if I do say so myself.
So, tell me guys, which is your favorite BG? And how do you like to play? I’m a fan of defense & dirty tricks, so far.
