Every now and then it happens.
I’ll be tending my auctions in Darnassus when the cry goes out: Darnassus is under attack!
Usually I ignore it so as to not disrupt the flow of my auction-tending, but occasionally it takes place while I’m in between tasks, and, for whatever reason, I wander off to see what’s what.
This time of year, of course, all the little scrubs come dribbling in from the portal and make a beeline for Tyrande. Usually. On one or two occasions it’s been a coordinated raid, which it’s wise to stay out of the way of unless they make nuisances of themselves. But the little solo raiding divas … well, that’s another matter.
Especially if they’re dicks.
Yesterday, for example, some douche canoe Shaman decided to camp the flight master. He wasn’t’ looking to bounce Tyrande. He was just sitting there, waiting for the flight master to respawn, then killing him again, rinse repeat, /spit.
This sort of scumbag gets my dander up, so I’ll often give them a pop or three, regardless of whether they pwn my priestly butt or not. But more often than not, at least lately, I’ve noticed that I’ve had a better than expected success rate, and that gets me thinking about putting together a moderate crafted PvP set (I’m a tailor after all). This is Probably A Bad Idea.
I don’t do well in high-pressure personal confrontations like world PvP. I can’t explain that in any way other than the adrenaline kicks in, I get jittery and shaky, and my heart rate ratchets up by an order of magnitude. Battlegrounds and Arenas are a different matter, mentally, for some reason. That world PvP just … pushes a button, I guess. So it’s overall an unpleasant experience.
Still, I do it. And while it is small potatoes to most PvPers, getting [That Takes Class] on the Shammy is gratifying.
(Forgetting about his self-rez … not so much)
