It's not often I get achievements in PvP anymore, but I was surprised to land not one but TWO on Friday night!
I was actually just 33 points short of Grievous Conquest at the end of last week as I hit conquest cap so I was itching to do some sort of PvP to get those last points. My attempts at random BGs were horrible earlier in the week, so I was looking forward to Friday where I could get some. Sev, Shab and I were joined by Triarchi and we did one BG - I think it was Battle for Gilneas - and I got my achievement.
We did a few arenas and did quite well for a Friday - maybe it's because we had dropped a bracket and had some easier teams. But then we went back to BGs, and got into Eye of the Storm (wow haven't done that for ages) and I had this warlock whisper me and saying "If you want to win this BG, heal the DK". I noticed they were from the same server, so I decided to see what he was like. Wow, that DK could churn out some damage, and then the warlock asked if I would please heal him as well, so I did. I stayed with the two of them until someone said in the BGchat "Do I cap the flag or hold it?" and the warlock replied "Who the fuck cares dumbass". I said to the lock that the comment was not cool, and I left them and ran to the middle to get him to cap, but the flag carrier died. It turned good in the end because that BG won with a 4 cap, and I got the last 4 cap win I needed for my achievement. Woo!
There was some bugginess as well. Sev and Shab switched to their healers, and we queued for BGs - always a bad move because we inevitably end up with lousy DPS and losing. It was a Twin Peaks and I ended up picking up the flag and Shab and Sev took turns healing me - and it was buggy because I never got the stacking debuff. Unfortunately for us our DPS didn't work on the rogue who was the EFC and so it was a dreadful draw - probably just as well, since we did have an unfair advantage, and I don't particularly like cheating.
I picked up my last Tyrannical item (trinket) and now any extra conquest will be used for... oh I don't know... a feral PvP set perhaps? I need to learn to play first though!
