Attack Frenzy

Okay, so here I am doing all the grind things you have to do – cooking, fishing, first aid, alchemy, herbs, etc.  for MY char – at Tarren Mill.  I was there because that is to be the next jumping-off point for our joint leveling (Ally, Bourg, myself).

Minding my own business, catching sagefish in the pond down the hill when the “Tarren Mill is under attack!” message appears.  As you know, that appears for one location or another continually, and you just sort of ignore it unless you happen to be involved.  It went on for a while, and I asked Bourg and Ally if I should try to help.  Since it was just up the hill and all.  They laughed (we are at Level 31 now with these characters.)…. said they would all be 80s.

BUT … the attack message went on for 15, 20, 25, 30 … finally,almost 45 minutes!  So,I went up into town to see what was what, and the Alliance bunch was killing everyone and waiting for each to rez, and then, killing them again.  They would just gang up in the center of town and wait for most to rez, then blast them all again.  This went on two or three times, and I told Ally and Bourg.

They assembled all of you who could come help at that time, and I just sat back and watched.  What a bloodbath.  What a firestorm.  I got to see incredible spells, sure, including finally understanding what use shaman totems (maxxed out) are, and what a draenei shadow priest does.  A bunch of assorted alliance, including and most especially a killer shaman,  shadow priest, death knight and rogue wiped out everybody several times, until reinforcements arrived.

It was a terrific battle, yes, and it was incredible to watch, but why would those people do this?   It was shooting fish in a barrel.  Bourg and Ally said they do this intentionally BECAUSE they know a bunch like DN will come to the rescue, and that it’s FUN.   Just the battle itself.  It that’s your goal, it seems a rather uncertain and disorganized modus operandi to me, but I guess it’s the unknown factor of the thing – if, when and who will come – that is the draw.

I especially liked the part where you all hightailed it to Southshore and retaliated, so that they went running back there when they rezzed!  I cannot wait!
