The Underbog and a New Guild!

I was playing Keystone (and the Auction House) this weekend when I realized that I was almost level 67 and I've only done TWO of all these new 5-man instances added with the expansion. I decided to try for a group for Coilfang Reservoir since I was in Zangarmarsh anyways running quest.

I found a group pretty quickly and proceeded my way to the instance. Upon my arrival, I noticed our level 68 Human Paladin was dancing nude in front of a group of level 70 Horde. She claimed she was buying us time to get into the instance, but you never know with those Paladins...

I was impressed by the design of the Underbog and it's linear, yet open terrain. I like how it's a path from one end to the other, but it's an open enough environment to not seem like you're walking down a corridor the whole instance (Sunken Temple is a nightmare!)

I also like that Herbalist can make a killing from all the herbs inside, especially when you're the only herbalist in the group! I don't know about other servers, but Anchent Lichen is selling for 2g a piece on Sargeras!

Aside from the new instance run, I joined a new guild this weekend. I was in the 2nd largest guild on the server, but they had no organization, no purpose, nothing...
It seemed like a sespool for anyone to join and hangout, but that brought plenty of bad apples, and guildmates that didn't know eachother well enough.

I joined a smaller guild with very friendly members that like to help eachother. The momement I joined there was a couple of members being camped by some horde, so I ran to the aid of my new brethen.

I'll end this post here, since if I start to discuss the PvP that ensued, we'll all be here way too long =)

There were (2) level 62 Blood Elf Hunters and (1) level 63 Undead Rogue; there was a guild message stating that (2) of our level 60 members were being camped by this trivial trio. I never turn down a fight, so I teleported to Shatterah, then hopped on the griffon headed towards Zangarmarsh.

I arrived in Zangarmarsh right behind (2) level 70's from the guild that had shown up to help defend the camped guild members. At first we strung in there one at a time (they had flying mounts, I was on the ground) and took deaths before calling for a regroup. I myself ran up on the three of them and took out a Hunter, and 1/2 the health of the other two before I died. I checked the combat log and they had some serious crits.

Finally our group members finished their quest and I moved on to the Arenas where I had a 2 v 2 that ended with a 20 minute battle against a rogue...

It was myself (Mage) and a Paladin fighting against a level 69 Undead Warrior & Rogue combo. I tried to sheep the Warrior since the Paladin was hitting the Rogue, but he kept knocking him out of sheep, so I just unleashed the DPS on the Warrior since he was low, and the Paladin looked like he was ok, but the Paladin and Warrior died at the same time, then the rogue vanished and it was on...

So it's now a level 69 Undead Rogue vs.. a level 66 Human Mage, I figured the fight would go quick since Frost Mages make mince meat out of Rogues, but this guy was sneaky. He would start to lose the battle, stun me, then run off to stealth. It was frustrating, and my dead teammate kept telling me to just take the loss since I couldn't beat him.

I wasn't about to take a loss just to speed things up, I was enjoying the challenge. After about 20 minutes I finally was able to take the Rogue down, and it probably would have been longer if not for the Stealth Detection Buff that pops up about 5 minutes into the arena...

I'll add screenshots later...
