I am getting really close! 65k renown to go. I sound like a pie loving hobbit junkie. Not apologizing.
This past weekend, it was all peaceful and quiet in Ridder’s Ettenmoors for the first ten minutes after logging in. However, the action picked up really quickly when news broke out that members of an infamous Tribe had returned for the weekend. The rumors were true, the Freeps mustered to meet them, and it was a glorious weekend of fighting. Let’s jump right into the highlights.
Dancing With Wargs
Have you ever had to hit retreat after being defeated, ride out alone from the rez circle back to the battle, and get the feeling that you’re being stalked? You release the W key. You wait. Nothing happens. You relax, hit the auto run key and reach for the soda. And then they pounce.
Wargs man, they’re everywhere! Riddermark’s Warg population has gone up considerably since the last expansion. They bite, they stun, they silence, they drop yellow goo on the ground..Wargs have been a thorn in my side this weekend. They have really pushed me to play at my ultimate best, not to mention forcing me to spend a whole lot of commendations to buy the PvMP fear and stun pots. The normal ones don’t work for me. There were two particular moments regarding Wargs that comes clearly to mind this weekend. Firstly, when our raid engaged the above mentioned Tribe, a good friend of mine was on his Warg. He pointed out that I was the only Captain doing the healing/bubbles, so all Wargs should focus their jaws on me. That worked well for them as all the kiting in the world couldn’t save me from getting hauled back to the rez circle.
Secondly, later on in the day, we got to exact our revenge on the Wargs. Two jumped me while I was trying to revive our Minstrel, and they really liked the way I tasted, completely ignoring the Loremaster standing nearby, Commander Raven. I would explain in detail what happened next, but I think the picture below should take care of that. Simply beautiful. I think I just dropped down a few places on the Warg food chain.
Rising KB Tally
Not sure if it’s down to pure luck, timing or greed. I’m just going to reiterate the value of Captain bleeds just like I’ve done in the previous two Moors Reports.
It’s all about fun in the end. This weekend was filled with frustrating moments, “holy crap!” moments, virtual high fives, trash talking and adrenaline rushes – a combination of emotions that ultimately makes the Moors fun for me and that’s why I keep coming back. It’s a unique competitive experience that I will enjoy for a long time to come.
Obsession With Bling
Hey, Isildur was a junkie, so was Gollum, and even Frodo. Us Freeps are no exceptions. The relics..our precious. Having the relics not only gives us bragging rights and bonuses, but initiating a ‘relic-heist’ usually starts great fights in DG, across the map and in OR. If you ever wanted to know where the Creeps are, take a relic. They’ll show up alright!
In conclusion, it’s been a fantastic weekend out in the Moors. I hope the amount of action the server has been getting during weekends never cease. Special mention to the Wargs of Riddermark – You pups offered a howltastic challenge this weekend. May we clash again. Just remember that I have Loremasters extraordinaire Wiga and Calenion on speed-dial, and recently added to that list, is Commander Raven (GIF Celebrity above).
