I have been running For The Horde groups for months now. These groups as most of you know are just thrown together through trade in my attempt to get every horde on the server a Black War Bear. Now of course this has spawned people coming on extremely low levels, every alt they have, and of course people who want to just come for kicks. The one thing that has been lacking is the attempt to stop me. I was beginning to think that the alliance was letting me go in and do my thing. I have even tried to stir up trouble. Killing the auctioneers, the NPCs, and even kiting the Gnome King to The Undercity. The alliance must have known I was coming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. How could they not? I am not saying there was never any defence, because there has been. These small groups of resistance were nothing. I have been wanting for them to throw an army at me.
Saturday it started. Gimmlette our good friend from Spectacular Death had got some people to Ironforge. It was a smaller force and was a little late. They didn't pull off the wipe, but they downed me not too long after the king had fallen. That was just the beginning. Yesterday, Gimm had messaged me while I was setting up the raid, "see you in Ironforge" was the plan. I saw here on the docks in Auberdine and thought nothing of it. That was my mistake. Darnasuss and Exodar went off like a hitch, Stormwind though was another story. I ran into that keep like it was any other day. Let's just say I had never seen so many alliance in the keep at one time. I was not prepared, as Illidan would say. I was taken and made to kiss the floor without a kill. The game was on as I saw it. I was expecting the defence to be in Ironforge and not Stormwind. Therefore I had not prepared the group for anything other than 20 defenders.
We were moving to Ironforge and we would be ready. I would not fail twice in one day, it wouldn't happen. From Badlands we rode. Stormed through the gates. Of course running through the front gates isn't the most stealth thing to do and we were discovered quickly. We ended up having 5 waves of alliance all controlled and killed perfectly. Sure it was the slowest boss burn I have ever had, but they came to defend their king. How I have waited for this kind of fight. King went down, and looking at the doors and I knew we were done for. What to do at a time like this? Charge the bastards screaming Pi. If I am going down I am taking some with me.
So thanks Gimm for getting people to put up a fight. It makes the runs so much more excited. Getting 200+ kills in Ironforge taking down the king is the way it should be. Nothing should be easy, and I won't make the mistake of not being ready again.
Another reminder to send me your snowball targets. You only have till Wednesday night because of Christmas. Happy Winter Veil!
