I was in Nagrand tonight on Wranngar farming leather from Clefthoof Bull's when the Horde decided to attack Halaa. I decided to join in defending and get some Halaa Battle Token's. That was a lot of fun. I got 12 kills and 10 tokens. I wasn't in the raid group for the first 2 so I didn't get any tokens. There were a few Horde milling around but most of them weren't flagged, the ones that were didn't last long :). I was sitting flagged in the middle of a group of 3 or 4 Horde that weren't flagged when a 70 Tauren hunter landed and decided to attack me. In typical Horde fashion after he took a shot at me a 65 Blood Elf hunter decided to join in. I figured the rest of them would too and it would be all over for me fast but they didn't, it was just me and the 2 hunters and their 2 pets. I killed the 70 first, it was too easy, he must have been wearing all greens, maybe a couple whites. The 2 of them shooting me with arrows and their pets on me only got me down to about 60% by the time I killed the 70. I took out the 65 in 3 shots and came out of it with 45% of my health left. The others just sat there and never joined in. I healed myself and calmly sat down in the middle of them to drink. By that time a couple Alliance players showed up so I wasn't in much danger anyway. Then we had a reset and when we logged back in no one had Halaa, lol, so it was all for nothing :). I had 12 kills and 0 deaths :D
After we got the daily battleground out of the way we did some Warsong Gulch, Axeelina and me on Wranngar. Axeelina stayed for a couple battles, both were wins, then she had to go. I needed 13 WSG marks, or so I thought, so I stayed in and fought in 3 more battles, all wins. I had a good time in WSG today despite that fact I hate WSG. I got to run and capture the flag a few times. When I had the 30 WSG marks I thought I needed I headed to Champions Hall and found out that I only needed 20. Anyway I got Vindicator's Leather Bracers and a couple gems, Bold Ornate Ruby and Smooth Ornate Dawnstone to socket the bracer's and replace a cheap gem I had socketed. Now everything I have on Wranngar with the exception of Staff of Natural Fury are PvP rewards. I got Staff of Natural Fury as a drop from a fire elemental on the elemental plateau in Nagrand. We also did a battle in Arathi Basin but it was a loss. Heimdahl joined us for that one. After Axeelina logged off I went and did some more AV's. The Alliance had a pretty good day in AV today along with WSG. I was in a total of 9 AV's today, 6 wins, 3 losses. Alliance was running around 66% in AV tonight in the battles I was in. We won one of our battles on reinforcements and all the others we got by either rushing IBGY or FWGY, both were working well. The Alliance was working well together with a minimum of bickering in AV tonight.
The daily battleground today was Alterac Valley. I did it on Wranngar. Axeelina was in a few of them with me. She had 3 or 4 losses I think she said before I joined her. Our first battle was a loss but our second was a win. In the first battle we were just moving too slow or the Horde were moving too fast, either way they killed Vann before we even had the Frostwolf Towers Capped. In the win some of us went to IBGY and some went to FWGY. We got both and capped the towers. We also had SHGY and SFGY. The Horde were rezzing at the FWRH. Eventually they got SHGY but by then it was too late for them, we had TP & IBT capped and were working on E & W FWT's and had FWRH capped. We took down Drek for the win. The daily battleground quest pays 11g99s and 419 honor.
I did all my Shattered Sun daily's on Gomorra and my Shattered Sun and all the others on Wranngar. It took me a little while but I got them all done and made 340g all together. I was able to give Axeelina 1000 gold towards the money she lent me for my 300 riding skill on Gomorra. I figure another 6 or 7 days at this rate and I will be able to pay off the remaining 2000 gold.
