World PvP

And now for something completely different, I went ahead and moved my shadow priest over to a PvP server and have been participating in a decent amount of World PvP.  Raiding each other's shrines and capital cities, battling on the Isle of Thunder.  That kind of thing.

It's something that I haven't really done before at all, so it's been a nice change of pace.  There seems to be a huge amount of drama between the various guilds on the server that do a lot of World PvP, but it's more entertaining than anything as long as you try not to get too caught up in it.

I'm continuing to run LFR each week on my warlock and am anxious to see the final wing of Throne of Thunder when it opens up later today.  I'm just hoping there's no Durumu equivalent where the whole raid dies at a certain point in each fight with everyone left wondering what the hell just happened.

New LFR Wing

So I tried the new LFR wing as soon as it was released last week.  Like most people, I found the Durumu fight to be utterly frustrating.  My group finally got it down after accumulating 8 stacks of determination.  We essentially burned him to the point that the 4 or 5 people that were actually able to see the safe spots on the floor were able to get him the rest of the way down.  After a quick poll, we determined that those five people were all running very current machines with super upgraded graphics cards, so they were somehow able to make out the purple discs of death, within the purple smoke on the purple floor and find the spots where none of that stuff was. 

The rest of us just got to stare at our release buttons.

Primordius and Dark Animus ended up being totally fine.  Of course, no gear for me, but that's OK.  It's just fun to see the content.  I'm really hoping Durumu gets fixed somehow.

In the meantime, I've been doing more PvP on my shadow priest.  I've moved him over to an actual PvP realm to try my hand at some world PvP.  So far, that's going pretty well, and I'm finding I still enjoy the PvP side of things a lot.  Especially after the frustrations of LFR.

My monk is still stuck in Outland and not feeling any love at all.  I will finish him up at some point, but no big rush.
