My Tarren Mill Terror Title

Tarren Mill Versus Southshore

My First Experience With The Tarren Mill Versus Southshore Battleground

Tarren Mill Versus Southshore

Gotta say, I’m not a fan.  The battleground design is very reminiscent of a world PvP battle.  Like Alterac Valley, each team has a several hundred (300 in this case) point goal.  Unlike Alterac Valley, the only way to score points is to score kills.  So you have to slog through 300 enemy kills, or the full 30 minutes.  Both games went to 30 minutes for me.  On top of this, I had to wait two hours in queue before each queue popped.  Ugh.  The 30 minutes is just too long, or the 300 kills is just too much.  When I queue for a battleground, I want it to be over and done in 15 minutes.  That’s just my personal preference.  The Tarren Mill Versus Southshore BG is a very lifelike creation though, complete with low level animal mobs to kill, and guards to deal with.

Even though this BG goes away forever on January 6th, 2015, I hope never to get it again. The Feat of Strength achievement and ‘Tarren Mill Terror’ title that comes with it are enough for me.

  1. I think the intention here was to replicate wPvP in what used to be the Southshore area. Agreed, for a BG it’s a mindless TDM, but it did exactly what it should have done since wPvP is basically just TDM anyway.

    • I think you’re right about their intention. I guess they wanted to bring back that nostalgia, which is fine. I just would have liked to see a little something added to make it different. Tarren Mill was never more memorable for me than Tol Barad, or Undercity, or anywhere else I could wPvP. Creative differences!

Feel like adding something?
