Woot! First hordie down!
PvP is happening! Sure getting ganked a few times is irritating but the first time you stomp that Orc that tried moving in on your questing area everything becomes alright.
I was in Desolace doing the Kodo Roundup quest. Which by itself is a fun little diversion from the usual “Kill 10 of X and bring me their gal-bladders..etc” When this Orc started taking my kodos from me, being the druid I am, those kodos are like my children. So of course I couldn’t let the horde move in on them.
Now here’s where my nubness of pvp comes into play, I don’t really know how low level pvp works but I figured as a druid the control of when and where the fight took place belongs to me. So I did hit and run tactics since the warrior was doing a surprising amount of damage to me. Bleeds are awesome by the way, and I think they ignore armor once they start applying their DoT damage but I’ll have to check on that.
Well the coup de gras was done with an entangling root and some moonfire action (just cause I could)
Since I don’t like the idea of corpse camping or griefing people, I figured I beat him, he’ll leave me be to quest and that would be that….of course the Horde doesn’t know when its beaten.
Funny thing that I found out about the kodo quest during all this. If you have a kodo tamed, and you stealth trying to get away from a warrior, the kodo follows you so the warrior knows where you are at all times. I mean not that it helped him the second time he had to get whooped either.
But like the ganking incident I talked about last week, this feels like another step in my druids evolution into becoming part of a PvP server. And a druid seems to be the perfect fit for someone who is new to leveling on one. They are versatile enough to handle many situations or if the need be escape since travel form works while in combat. Hot is slowly but surely becoming one of my favorite characters to play and I can’t wait to get him to max level and start doing some serious pvp’ing or raiding, whichever suits me at the time.
