Having played since vanilla, I was always into PVE first. Raids, raids, and more raids. I was often raid assist or formed the raids, and I even raid led in Cata.
But here it is…the end of 2013, and I have become a PVP junkie.
Rated BG in Gulch
I have always PVPd on the side. A lot at first because I was on a RPPVP server, but even after I went to PVE servers I still was in the BGs and sometimes arenas.
Now though, I have my Oqueue every time I am on, my PVP addons, and my PVP friends on the real ID. Not many PVP on my server, but I can always find the few and true to go into BGs with if nothing else.
I am a bit behind right now having only two pieces of grievous. I had taken a break from rateds and lost my arena partners, so I have mainly been hanging out doing whatever I can. But even in tyrannical gear, I am topping regular BGs in heals consistently. Check out how much I overhealed everyone in this Alterac Valley- 10,250,219! (plus my DPS was 1,485,608)….
Also, I got the End of the Line achievement recently by single-handedly taking a mine cart in Silvershard Mines away from a SHADOW priest right before she was going to cap it. I literally went HA out loud. (then kicked myself for not getting it on FRAPS or screenshot) I am also known to take on DKs, hunters, and boomkins by myself if completely bored in a battleground.
To announce my PVP-love to the world, I have now even transmogged my PVE gear (still low on the charts) to old PVP gear. Since I was honor capped, I converted my honor to justice points and bought Lich King level PVP gear. Here is what I came up with:
PVE to PVP
This outfit is basically level 80 PVP gear I got in Dalaran with a few other pieces:
Relentless Gladiator’s Mooncloth Robe
Relentless Gladiator’s Mooncloth Helm
I THINK I used the Relentless gloves and belt
Tyrannical Gladiator’s Energy Staff
I have now started working on my first PVP video, and I hope to post it soon!
