I dont care what this holiday really is called, I now dub it the cooking holiday. Able to go from 1-300 cooking just from these dailies? Yep..its the cooking holiday. (Or the travel just about everywhere 45times holiday, but cooking holiday rolls off the tongue easier)
Anyway, Sugar, Blood and I were attempting to get the horde towns portion of the cooking holiday done. The only town to give us any issues was Undercity, where I think every horde was hanging out in the court yard for this reason. Blood was playing his mage and had already gotten UC done earlier, so he attempted to act as decoy for me. Sugar was playing her rogue so she was mostly protected with the stealth, especially with our flashy decoy..and me? Well, I’m extremely squishy. I swear, in pvp, if someone looks at me, I’m instantly dead. How well did this work out? Ooooh, lets see…Blood rushes in and gets frost trapped right at the doorway, I blast in just inside of the court yard to see about 20 snake traps and die. Make the 15 mile run from the graveyard up by SM, res right on the chair but cant sit down, i’m stun locked by another 5 snake traps and frost trap. Sugar couldnt help laughing because she said I didnt even get health on her screen. Next time around, I was far enough in that I could got to the otherside of where I died, waited for both of them to res on the opposite side. Worked that time, and I even managed to get a hunter down to 50% before the rest of them turned and looked at me. Ended up spirit resurrecting and waiting for Blood and Sugar to come out.
The rest of the night was spent playing around with pvp (le gasp!). Now before you start wondering if I decided to work on my pvp-nubness, I didnt. We decided to go down to SW and return the favor to any of the horde trying to get the achievement. Well…that plan was foiled by the fact no horde were trying for it. I suspected it was because they were all defending UC. Suger wanted to find out how much a couple abilities hit for in different circumstances. She kept attacking Blood’s mage in varying defensiveness. I decided that her trying it out on my priest was just cruel and unusual punishment, and dusted off the ol’tank Cadfall. I figured with being over raid def capped would be close to having some resil in a dps spec. After that some pally decided to come and kick my ass. Amazingly with serious button-smashing and complete luck, I killed him despite him getting his bubble off. Now mind you, I think I had somewhere between 300-500hp, but still! And after that he had to duel me again until he killed me. I didnt try so hard the next time since I didnt want pvp any more. Winning 1 duel is an acomplishment that will be thought of with a happy feeling and a twinkle in my eye for many months to come. Hell, I might even conciter pvping with Cadfall now that he’s mostly getting ignored.
