Fussypants: I’ve recently got sucked into brawling. Right now, I’m at rank 8, stuck on Hexos (don’t give me hints, I wanna figure it out by myself!). I have to say, I’m enjoying it way more than I thought I would.
The first bosses were ridiculously easy, as they should be. I got all the way up to Rank 4 Ixx before I had my first death, and then up to Rank 7, the GG guys, where I got stuck for a while.
And I have to say, excepting the first few ranks, the Brawler’s Guild is surprisingly challenging. The fights require strategy, instead of brute force and high DPS. I totally expected to be able to crush with my high (as compared to when the Guild was introduced) ilvl, but I instead struggled on some.
I also really loved the sense of community. When I was there, there was always some one else there, and usually, they would encourage, buff, rez, or give tips to me. I actually managed to pass the GG guys with the help of another warlock.
The Brawler’s Guild was a fun, and unexpected challenge. I really hope WoD has something like it, and I plan to beat my dad to rank 10!
By the way, you have no idea how tempted I was to just post the title, and leave the article blank, as per the first rule of Brawler’s Guild. 😛
Yotaan: Brawler’s guild, is, for me, one of those things to do that I totally forgot. Then, a few weeks ago, I had picked up a quest item where you need to turn it in to try one of the optional bosses. So, I’m thinking I’m a pretty good player. Figuring my PvP experience of responding to challenges on the fly would keep out of the worst of the bad. Boy, was I wrong. The goal was not clear, I think I need to dps some towers in the corner or something and the main boss had well over a million health too! I was flattened almost immediately.
Of course, I loved the challenge and changed to another toon and jumped right in. That’s how Fussypants found out about it, she saw my achievements light up.
Now, let’s see how far I can get….
