The other night a group of 3 guildies decided to go farm whatever world dragons were up for gold - with a small enough group, you get a large chunk of gold for the effort. They tracked down Emeriss in Ashenvale, started on him, wiped once due to not remembering all his abilities and accounting for them, and when they ran back, found themselves faced with a group of Horde... including one of our former guildies who had faction changed.Both groups put out the call for reinforcements, although it was the middle of the night, so I found myself trekking out to Bough Shadow in my PVP gear. Each group wiped the other during a dragon attempt once, we fought and camped each other away from the dragon while our debuffs were up, and generally made each other miserable for an hour or so before we managed to send in one of our druids to cyclone the healers, thwart the Horde attempt entirely and kill Emeriss ourselves before they came back. We then sent out a few people to check the other spawn locations, and found Taerar in Feralas, but the Horde didn't come to join our party there.It brought back so many memories of pre-BC world dragon attempts that became almost as much about PVP as about the dragon and its loot. Nothing like seeing that zone-wide yell while leveling an alt in Duskwood and announcing in gchat "Lethon is up! Twilight Grove, go go go!"... scrambling to assemble whoever was on, pulling in friends from other guilds, and rushing to battle against players that had made a name for themselves in battlegrounds and world PVP over time. Sure, there may be issues with implementation to make them both relevant and accessible... but dang, the world dragons were FUN. I would love to see them in Cataclysm.
