I took Wranngar to Burning Steeps today and helped Yonezoe do some quests there. We were able to burn right through them. We had to kill some Ogres, some Dragonkin and some Wolves, pretty easy stuff. I logged off early tonight because I was pretty tired.
The daily battleground today was Eye of the Storm. I did it Wranngar and we won the first battle I was in. We owned the Horde, it was a fast easy win. I went straight to FRR when the battle started and about 5 people came with me. FRR was pretty heavily guarded but we just ran right over them and took it away. We started with MT, FRR and BET, then took DR. We had the horde trapped on their rock and just ran the flag until we won, it took less than 5 minutes. The daily battleground pays 11g99s and 419 honor.
I did the daily cooking quest on Wranngar. It was Soup for the Soul again. I got the Clefthoof I needed for it while I was doing Gaining the Advantage. I picked Barrel of Fish for my reward and got some fish but no recipe :(. The daily cooking quest pays 7g95s plus the reward.
I did all my Shattered Sun daily's on Wranngar today. It took me about an hour and I made about 120 gold. It feels good to be sending gold to the bank again instead of taking it out. I also did Gaining the Advantage. I got 9 Heavy Clefthoof Leather doing that quest which I use to make the Clefthide Leg Armor.
I fought in 8 more AV's tonight on Wranngar, 3 wins and 5 losses. The major problem tonight was the amount of AFK in the battleground. In the last battle I was in more than 1/4 of our team was AFK. It is time for Blizzard to step up to the plate and take some kind of action to deter this. I think a first offense should be a week ban from battlegrounds, second offense, within a certain timeframe, a one month ban from battlegrounds and loss of any accumulated honor, third offense, within a certain timeframe, banned from battlegrounds for life and loss of all honor rewards and honor. I am sick of losing battles because so many people are AFK, they are taking a slot from someone who could be fighting. I get pretty aggravated by repeat AFK offenders and tend to go for harsh penalties, but something really needs to be done about the problem. Whatever is being done now does not seem to be deterring the same people from going AFK day after day.
