I aim to misbehave.
As a Rank 6 Brawler (impressive, right?), I know a thing or two about throwing down. (Literally. Like maybe two things. I don’t know how I’ve lived this long.) So when I heard that this weekend’s bonus event was Arena Skirmishes, I was naturally all over it. I pull decent deeps, have a good iLevel, and have some pvp experience. Time to farm some honor, baby!
Yeah, about that. I got a win or two, but for the most part my arena time looked like this:
*rush into the room*
HASTA LA VISTA SUCK-*dead*
Uh, okay guys let’s disc-*dead*
Leave me alon-*dead*
Now there’s many ways to approach a situation like that. You can tuck tail and run, or you can learn. Reddit’s PVP Page didn’t offer too much help, but it did point me in the right direction. I don’t know if it’ll make much difference for me this weekend, but I intend on checking sites and videos to see if I can lessen the suck and increase the pwn.
If you’ve ever been curious about getting into arenas, this is the time to do it. It’s fast 2v2 action, a wide cross-section of player experience will be doing it, it won’t take up much of your time, and usually the other person has already bailed out before they can tell you that you suck. At the very least, it’s 24 honor for a loss. Even losses add up if you get enough of them. Silver lining and all that.
Seriously, if you’ve ever even remotely considered it, this weekend is a good time to get your feet wet.
Do you do the pvp dance? Are you trying the skirmishes this weekend, or would you rather pull out your fingernails with pliers?
