When I first started PvPing, I eyed the achievement lists and found one at the bottom that gave me pause: Battlemaster. A title well beyond even Justicar, one that shows complete mastery of the battlegrounds through the Burning Crusade. Okay, there’s a goal to work towards, I thought.
Then I started working towards it, and holy moly, is that one hard achievement. Alterac Valley was the easiest of the lot for me to get started on, what with being in my 50s and the Alliance owning that bracket. Warsong Gulch was much worse for me as a Warlock, being a squishy cloth wearer. As I started grinding out the reputation and trying to run the flag, I realized how long of a haul I was in for to get the Battlemaster title.
When I started playing a Death Knight, the situation in Warsong Gulch improved dramatically. Achievements which formerly seemed impossible (Iron Man) were trivial, and I could romp through the field with impunity. The experience really opened my eyes as to how some things that are easy with one class can be seemingly impossible for another.
But “seemingly impossible,” much like the “mathematically impossible” Yogg+0 kill, doesn’t mean “impossible.” It just means “really fucking hard.”
So it’s with some awe that I congratulate Jagoex on reaching the pinnacle of battlegrounds with his Warlock. Serious, heartfelt congratulations!
Someday I hope to join you. It’s just a matter of time. 🙂
