Recruitment - For the Horde!

It saddens me to read all of your posts about your Alliance quests. They will all be for naught once the mighty Horde completes its assimilation of all remaining lands.

That and I'm very lonely over here.

Seriously, I never pictured this lot being all goody goody Alliance lovers. I knew a few of you were soft and had to live in The Mushroom Forest or Camp Frozen Lakes or whatever your fluffy happy zones are called. But I'm surprised at others of you. Some of you own personal firearms for goodness sake! You obviously thirst for power and glory and respect, all of which The Horde can offer in abundance. Yet it seems Robear, Strekos, and myself are the only ones worthy of the mantle.

I know what you're thinking, "But I have a Horde character, too!" That's going to be small consolation for me as I try to gather up a party for the Wailing Caverns tonight. I need some comrades who will follow or even lead me into certain death. I need someone who can hand me down their old, tattered gloves and I will still be low of a level to wear. I need...well...some friends, please.

So if you haven't picked up the game yet or you're realizing that all of the Alliance pants make your bum look big, please consider joining GWJ Horde on the Central server BlackHand. Just send Sway a tell

If you werent lvl 20 the rest of us might be able to play with you :)... I managed to get the Undead Mage up to 15 but I have to go nite nite so i can be nice and rested for work tonight.... Some really nifty quests in Silverpine and the area is a crafters dream herb, ore, darn near everything is skinnable - now if only I could find a mob that drops wool....

I have a Tauren Druid there... of course it is only level 1

I need to get back to my troll hunter, but he''s only lvl 7. You''re right, though, there''s a ton of ppl in GWJ Alliance.

Horde just doesnt'' appeal to me really. I don''t like any of the races except perhaps the Tauren. With the alliance I pretty much like all the characters so thats what I play the most.

I like both sides Sway and I want to play both. But, I want to get into the meat of the game ASAP and I think right now that can be done on Alliance side since the majority of the people are there. I also made the promise to help with armor and weapons via my blacksmithing skill so I don''t want to dissapoint on that either.

I was pushing for the Horde guild on these boards the entire time during beta and it seems like the Alliance thing just happened.

Well, I think the problem for me is that my main, unfortunately, can''t be with GWJ. So, I had to pick either Horde or Alliance, and decided on Horde because my main was Alliance (God bless the Paladin!).

Well, I''m all about the Horde. I tried a Night Elf but they''re just too common. Didn''t want to play a human and wasn''t all that interested in playing a short person either.

However, I think what''s going to keep me out of most of these official get togethers is timing, the bane of living on the west coast. On week nights I don''t get on the PC until around 8:30 pm my time which is 10:30 central/11:30 eastern. You guys will be pretty much done when I''m just getting started.

I''m really enjoying the Horde, moreso than Alliance so far. Could be that I sort of OD''d on the Alliance races in the stress test and beta. I have a level 12 Tauren Hunter that I''m really enjoying (so much so that I went past the level 10 target for Tue/Wed), and just started an Orc Rogue.

Down with the pretty races! Up with the ugly horde!

Been wondering where you''ve been Marlin. Haven''t seen you in Azeroth yet. Maybe we''ll hook on the Horde side.

I really didnt like the 6+ quest area for the Trolls and Orcs. Im assuming this is also the same area for the Taurens. The Undead area is great but noone else is around when I played.

All in all I only put in time this weekend, almost exclusively on the Horde side. That damned queue kills my ability to get in and play because I''m always logging in during peak hours. I''m looking forward to questing up with you and more GWJers!

So far the Orc area is a little dull. The Tauren area has been fun, if only because I''ve played a lot of it with Spleen -- far better than doing it solo. I briefly tried the Undead area in the first stress test and thought it was pretty cool, so I''m looking forward to trying more of it but plan on pacing myself -- no need to get WoW''d out in such a short period of time, I''ve got 7 months to go on my subscription!

Undead areas are very cool amd with the ease of travel to the other Horde lands - it is ideal... Also, look up Undreth if you need bags or caster armor... Had a blast playing with RichyRambo last night...

I''m liking Horde more than Alliance too, probably because Marlin and I hooked up pretty close to the start. My Tauren Shaman is definitely my favourite and was a perfect match for Marlin''s Hunter, play wise. I''m level 11 tho and nowhere near the Undead lands so will likely be too powerful for starting GWJ night tomorrow with Certis n'' Hoochie?

Fang- I don''t care for the 6+ area for Orc/Troll very much either, but the Tauren 6+ area is a lot of fun. I soloed to 10 on Thanksgiving and had a blast. Flux and I have been playing our Pally/Rogue combo a lot the last few days, but he has a 10 Tauren Shaman and I have a 12 Tauren Warrior over there. If anyone needs some newbie mail armor on the Horde side, PM me and we will work something out.

I am also really enjoying the Horde, probably more than Alliance. Especially my Undead Priest, which I can''t play right now because the servers melted as soon as I got my kids to bed. Grrrrrr.

Well thats good to know that the Tauren 6-10 area isnt the same as the Orc/Troll. Might Have to get a Tauren out of the newbie area.

I started Horde because I thought that''s what we agreed upon. I stayed because there is just so much to do, and it''s so much fun. I do wish others would follow the path of honor and strength, rather than tarty walks and stretch pants. Heck, even our undead brethren are paragons of freedom and decency!

Horde need friends. Thag need friends. Thag make tasty umbrella drinks for friends. Please, not make Thag cry like Paladin in Undead starter area! Join Horde and see what real Azeroth like!

If you werent lvl 20 the rest of us might be able to play with you

Ditto. I''m almost level 12, though. Or is it 13? The levels just sort of happen, it''s really cool.

I will play horde, probably Tauren. Playing a gnome first just appealled to me, for obvious reasons.

I''m Horde all the way baby but only up to level 12 with a Tauren Hunter.

Perhaps if Sway started another character he could play with the rest of US!

I will try to keep up with you guys in anticipation of playing together next week... Had fun with Richy and we knocked out some quests in less than an hour - the ones in Silverpine are nice as well and the silver rolled in quickly as I went from quest to quest... Made lvl 15 and have my first gold piece... The 10% chance of stunning on fire spells is nice Richy if you havent used your talent points yet... I am stunning about every 3rd mob in combat and i spent another couple in extending the range of the fireball - pretty potent outdoors with room... Oh and if you see ""Son of Azural"" or something close near The Sepulcher - uhhh stay away - he shows up as ? for lvl and will kill you in a heartbeat - nasty bugger.

It amazing how much less downtime you have when running with teammate. My shining moment with Spy was demonstrating my leet skillz by falling to my death in the elevator in the Undercity. I also loved that quest in mage quarter focusing on the lich which ended with a reward of shield! WTF is a mage going to do with that...

There often is some pretty entertaining and puzzling loot on some of the corpses. On the side of ""what the heck was that thing carrying"" department, when Spleen and I were playing on Saturday we were hunting cougars and we found a lot of them with collars (what are they, domesticated cougars on the prowl?) and one even with a sword (what was it, stuck in the collar?). Still not as funny as adventuring during the stress test and trying to find teeth. Couldn''t find any teeth on the creatures (they all evidently were gumming their food), but I did find milk on one of them. Good to know the beasts understand good nutrition.

Help your sad armor rating and hopefully allow you to live .5 second longer when I stab you?

but I did find milk on one of them. Good to know the beasts understand good nutrition.

That was teat milk.

Ice cold teat milk, yum!

I''ve got you beat by a long shot, Marlin.
Last night I was killing ""zebras"" and I had a tough time with one of them. Turns out he was carrying some cool ""shotgun"". Yes, a shotgun. Green. With stats I think.

On a zebra. Oh, Gary Larson, how we love you!

Well I''ll play GWJ Horde... but not on Blackhand. I''ve gone with Shadowsong - unless another official backup server is chosen. Look for Cro, the Orcen Fighter.

My main character is an Undead Warrior and I''ve had fun playing with spy and richy a couple of times so far. I tried all the races during beta and liked the Undead the best.

Sway - won''t don''t you play an alt for a couple of days so we can catch up? Several of us should be cracking lvl 20 soon!

Where the heck is Elysium? Is he not playing WoW? How is that possible?

If any Horde folks on Blackhand need potions let me know!
