WoW Battleground Weekend: Isle of Conquest

Share this post on reddit.

Last time I did this sort of update it was Alterac Valley weekend, this week it's Isle of Conquest and there's still a few hours left before the event is closed. So even though I've been playing mostly Diablo 3 beta giveaway for the past two days, I have some tips on how to win this one. 


Simmilarly to Alterac Valley the key here is speed and organization. As Allience usually what we do is head straight for the docks. As soon as we've captured those, one part goes with the catapults to jump the enemy's gates and start placing bombs on the left door of the keep, the other uses the glaives to finish the gate off.

If we're lucky the Horde will not be defending too much, and their gate will fall a few seconds before ours does. Then all rush in to kill the boss and we win. The problem is that while we do that the Horde are getting siege engines which have a lot more health than the glaives. Two or three hordies fighting a glaive can kill it within a few seconds. So really, everybody has to pull their weight in defending them if we stand any chance to win.

There's a few other gimmicks in this Battleground that can be used to nerf the enemy's gates, like an air-ship that can be used to bomb if you have the map control point, or the aforementioned siege engines (tanks). Point is as Allience for some reason we always go for the docks, because it seems the easiest way to win, although we lose more than half the time, mostly because people don't take the time to defend the flimsy glaives properly.

The armour in the screenshots is the lvl 60 PvP set for mage/priest (Leutenant Commander's Investure PvP set) and IMO is one of the best looking armour sets in game. Unfortunately, because of the low level requirement, you can't use it for Transmogrification. So I bought it to take some screenshots and had to return it immediately, for a refund of my precious Honour Points.

  1. Interesting, it has been forever since I have played WoW, several years in fact, but I still do have buddies that play. Almost makes me want to get back into it.
