Problem is, I don't do arenas or RBG's. Honey hasn't arena'd since TBC, when I was begrudgingly dragged to 24 of them with a good buddy. Aynslie ran about 26 this tier, but it was solely for mogging purposes. She needed a hat!
Other than wanting the mount, I had no real intention of trying to get a group together. Saturday afternoon, two of my friends/guildies brought it up in guild chat that they were interested in going. One had a mage, one had a warrior. I originally offered Aynslie, but withdrew very quickly since she doesn't heal :p I offered Greenleigh since she had some fresh Tyrannical resto gear, and we proceeded to grind the day away.
Aside from being rusty with resto in general, and overall having no clue what to do in arenas, we toughed it out. All three of us only had Tyrannical gear to start, so we geared up with our huge CP caps all while doing them lol. I've always had a bad stigma regarding arenas from past experiences, but Cakezilla and Shunshin made the experience the best it could have been. They were patient while I learned my abilities, made macro's as we went, and were incredibly encouraging the whole time. One hell of a grind over the weekend and we were done. You guys are amazing and I love my mount! I did have a little trouble deciding who it should go to after I got it. I sure as heck wasn't going to use it on Greenleigh, but I really wanted one for Aynslie. Honeypants is my main though, and after sleeping on it I'm happy she has it. Next season, Aynslie!
Love you guys! <3
