The best part of this was the horde who tried to sneak into Honor Hold to kill stuff. That belf got the surprise of her life when we all jumped her. Her death added to our 83,361 horde kills toward the 100,000 needed for the achievement.
From here, we flew to Blade's Edge and Gruul's Lair. The first fight, with High King Mulgar, gave us fits as we were learning it. I remember coming back at least 5 times before we got the council down. Gruul, after that, is something of a pushover.
Seven of 9 people got the Magtheridon achievement and 8 of 10 got the Gruul achievement. If you are lacking a Burning Crusade raid for the meta achievement, let me know. We can schedule one in September.
Along for the fun were Rolandgilead (tank), Malpracticer (healer), Volixy, Loenides, Minaithelan, Starrefyre, Slugslinger, Unthur, Nounours and me.
Remember this event from February? Spectacular Death hosted a "Take over Halaa" all server event.
Horde and Alliance met in Halaa and took turns beating each other up for battle tokens. We are going to host again on Thursday night, beginning at 8 p.m. All toons capable of getting to Halaa without Mass Summon are welcome to come. That would generally be level 65 and up.
The whole point of this event is to earn Halaa Battle Tokens. You need them, plus Halaa Research Tokens, to purchase two mounts available only when your faction holds Halaa; the Dark War and Dark Riding Talbuks. You must be exalted with the Kurenai to purchase these mounts. The Research Tokens are acquired by killing things in Nagrand and getting crystal powder. That gets turned in for Research Tokens when your faction holds Halaa. During BC, this was quite the place to beat each other up. Now, however, unless we actually schedule an event, it's hard to find people here to kill for the tokens.
This will be one big party. Costumes are welcome. I may have to hop onto my cow to coordinate the event. We will attack for about 10 minutes, stop, and let the horde attack for 10 minutes and vice versa until everyone who needs tokens has them. It usually takes about an hour. It does get kind of silly after about 30 minutes.
Everyone's welcome to come. This is a great event even if you don't like PvP. Mark your calendars for Thursday, September 1st beginning at 8 p.m. server.
