On Saturday night the WHU Dwarven Hunter Guild rocked out and marched on Blackrock Mountain to take down Overmaster Pyron. This was our first event with access to mounts, which was awesome.
Many, many thanks to everyone who showed up and participated! Most epic-looking charge across the landscape yet, I think.
Way back after the very first WHU event, I was talking with Arust about potential targets to hit, and one of the ideas was Overmaster Pyron. The problem was at level 1 we killed a world dragon. Clearly Pyron was too easy.
But the idea stuck in my head and wouldn’t go away. I knew we’d slaughter him in no time now at level 30, but I just loved the idea of the WHU army marching on Blackrock Mountain. I thought that would look so cool.
Finally I decided to do it, and if we were going to do it, sooner is better. After all, the level cap is just going to keep going up. So I scrapped the original intended target in favor of marching on Blackrock Mountain. I’m certainly glad I did, ’cause I think it looks cool as all hell, but I do apologize to anyone who felt it was insufficiently challenging.
The level cap has been raised to 35. It was a small boost, because we’re going to have several events close together over the next couple of months.
