Lord Ahune strategy and walkthrough {WoW}

Jun 22nd 2008 7:41PM I did this today with a Shaman healing (well geared), a well geared tank (17k health unbuffed), a decent SPriest, myself (a decently geared Mage), and another mage in Outlands PVP gear. To be honest, the fight was a real bitch. Either our shaman was bad at healing, or our spriest didn't put out enough damage or something, but mana was a serious issue for both myself and the other mage. We were basically the only two doing damage to him during the core phase (I have no idea what the spriests deal was), and we simply did not have the mana to handle the 4th wave. It seems to be that more and more adds spawn as the fight goes on. Anyway, I would have killed to have had a paladin tank or some sort of melee DPS. I imagine that a well geared combat rogue could make fairly short work of the adds. Anyway, as our group was, we simply were not able to take him down before our mana pools were exhausted. Major bummer.

WoW Rookie: Welcome to PvP {WoW}

Dec 24th 2007 11:38PM Great tips!

I did the same thing, I leveled my old pre-TBC main on a PvE server, then moved to a PvP server when things got stagnant. I have to say, it adds an integral level of unpredictability that makes that game that much more enjoyable.

As for people complaining that its "impossible to level" or "that you always have to watch your back"...it really isn't true. PvP happens, but not constantly. Days would go by when I was leveling where I wouldn't be ganked once.

Beyond that, I firmly believe that playing on a PvP server forces you to really get the most out of your character. You really learn well what you can and can't do in certain situations. The experience you can gain from having to fight other characters your own level in world pvp is really invaluable to both PvE and PvP.

It can be scary getting started, especially if you come from a PvE realm, but the reality of the matter is, ganking gets old. It just does. Experienced 70s usually have better things to do than go around and gank lowbies. Key word being usually. When I first moved to PvP I looked for opportunities to gank constantly. Now, not so much. You can only take over Astraanar so many times before it gets boring.

Also, I think everyone can agree that the 20s-40s are the worst. Once you are in your mid 40s you are in zones that gankers simply don't think to go to. Also, in the outlands, I've found that most people tend to just leave eachother alone while questing. Most people realize that starting a fight will just end up costing you time, and therefore avoid it.

So....go roll PVP!
