On sunday we stumbled across the first winter zone in TERA, Westonia. Since I love winter zones in games I was really happy to see it. The area of the zone I so far enjoyed the most is called Tempest Reach and is more or less a dried up sea bed that has frozen over due to a surge of magic. There are old shipwrecks and weird sea creatures. Really neat.

While in that zone we ended up in a few challenging fights. One of them got really intense, to the point where it reminded me of PvP. And it made me think, if I can manage this I’m probably in shape to do some PvP.
So the next day me and the hubby did some 2v2 arenas in Warcraft to see if that was the case. And even though my gear is out of date it went okey and we had a lot of fun on our priest + hunter combo. This gives me things to do in WoW once again. So the plan to have my account frozen has been scrapped!
With the arena games going well I decided to give some focus to another PvP project that I have been putting off for a long time: getting parts of the Grievous set for Zazzy to use for a transmog.
Zazzy has not PvPed since mid-WotLK, so her PvP gear is really crappy. I started out with 485 iLvL and just 1,13% PvP power. But I decided to try anyway. So far is has gone really well. I’ve had a lot of luck with the teams I’ve ended up in. And now I have 3 out of the 4 pices I need for the transmog, after just two nights of Battle Grounds.
However, I think the best experience from having done BGs on Zazzy so far is that I have totally re-evaluated shamans in PvP. Even though I know they are good these days, many top healers in arena teams are shamans, I havent’ wanted to PvP on my shamans. Back in WotLK, when I did PvP on Zazzy, I didn’t really like it. They were so squishy compared to my other healers. But now, I was suprised at how long I managed to stay alive in my crappy gear. Not squishy at all.

Oh and another great Warcraft thing happened. My ally warlock finally dinged 69! You might think it is an odd level to be so excited about, but it really isn’t. I love Demonology. It’s been my favorite lock spec since vanilla. But these days Demo isn’t any fun until you get the Molten Core talent, which you get at lvl 69. Now the little lock is back to Demonology and can happily set the world on fire with her Soul Fire!
