My guild on Vek’nilash had a few weeks off. This was due to the holiday season and most of the members were going out of town or taking a small holiday break. This paused our end-game progression until the start of the new year and left me to do some solo stuff (i.e. PVP, dailies, quest, etc) or start leveling my alt.
At first I continued my PVP grind to obtain the rest of my retribution PVP gear (Rings, boots, etc) since I have majority of the season one gear. However obtaining the gear has brought a little struggle with the Alliance AV boycott (Battlegroup 9: Bloodlust) and pre-mades from the other BGs left me to do the bare minimum. Just get enough honor points (1-2K) and complete the daily PVP for that day. However the battlegrounds have always been a “side-quest” and I often get bored to do other things.
So after a few days of the PVP grind and getting bored of the grind I decided to resurrect my first human Paladin that I started over 2 years ago on a PVP server (Boulderfist). Plus I recently got in touch with an old friend that I’ve known for a long time.
After a few days of leveling there is one element that eluded me about a PVP server. People PVP … a lot. No matter what your level is they will attack. It sounds funny for me to say but I’ve been playing on a PVE server for some time and I don’t worry about PVP unless I am in the battlegrounds or I am flagged. But after awhile I got use to it and accepted my defeat, prevailed in victory or bubble hearth.
Overall leveling on a PVP server has brought a new rush of excitement, which is making my leveling enjoyable with every “Ding!”
