The spirit of competition

Blizzard is paying homage to the Olympics, in their own in-game way. Simply put, if you can keep winning in the BGs consistently, you get a new pet.

Now, the issue with BGs is that the lvls are n0-n9 (n = 1to6), and 70. So, if you are a low level, lets say 24 like my druid, then going into the BG is not really helpful. You lower the standards of the other players. So, since my lock was near to 38, i just leveller her a couple of bars and started the BGs.

Won the first - which was the weekend BG - Warsong Gulch. Got the 3 flags. The reward - the competitors tabard.

Lost the next few (who says horde does not loose?).

Then today, zerged the arathi basin BG (5-0) ! Got the medallion which would help summon the spirit right after that.

All hail the Olympics !

Reroll Horde

Ok. Finally I am a horde. I rerolled as one cause
- Just not getting time to play my hunter as the rest of the guild is into raiding, and I just don't have time for it (yeah, work sucks). Raid timings are quite ok actually : 6:30pm IST, but my office never ever lets me go before 7.
- It gets boring levelling another alliance character (though I got my shaman to 60).
- after much dilly dalying finally reached agreement that many indians will play on Deathwing.

So, here I am, as a druid contemplating the adventures across the barrens.
