The Highmaul Coliseum

"GUGH NGNUMPH AAUUGG!" - Cung Le's post-fight interview.

“GUGH NGNUMPH AAUUGG!” – Cung Le’s post-fight interview.

PVP is fun. It’s even more fun when it’s in-game, due to the lack of broken things like skin, teeth, and bones. The level of brain damage that can result is arguably comparable.

Master Rokk here. The Highmaul Coliseum is a PVP feature that is unlocked when you reach Level 3 with your Gladiator’s Sanctum. Basically you’re thrown into a big pit with a bunch of other players and have to fight it out, “last player standing” style. There’s thrills, gear, titles, achievement, and all types of wonderful violence and mayhem.

Zumio, he of my last couple of posts (so click there to get to his Youtube channel) has created yet another helpful video. This one outlines a strategy for winning the Highmaul Coliseum. “Easily” win it, he claims. I don’t see it as easy, but it is definitely doable and will not cause me to suffer excessive blood loss. Therefore, I am down with his line of thinking.

So try this out, and post in the comments if you have a strategy of your own that might help, uh, other people. Not me because Master Rokk is a master in fist-to-face combat. But, like, maybe other people who may read this blog and say “Hey, I wonder if someone has a great strategy for winning the Highmaul Coliseum. Also, I am not Master Rokk.”

Be that guy (or gal). Be the one to help me someone else out.

Garrison Building for PVP

Back in November (last Thursday to be exact) I took my passport and my wallet for a little trip to America. There was Christmas shopping to be done, and oddly enough I found some excellent Black Friday deals on Thursday night. Needless to say, by the time the feeding frenzy of Black Friday shopping began at six a.m., I was still in bed sound asleep. Why? Because I had decided that I would rather sleep in than get up at 5am, hover around the four Monster High Doll Houses (or whatever the Hell that thing was) that went on sale at 6am, and fight a bunch of rabid parents just to save twenty bucks. Besides, the thing was already cheaper than I could have gotten it for back home (even with the exchange rate.) So, yeah. Go me.

Go go me.

Work smarter, not harder. Determine just how much your time is worth. For some people, twenty bucks might have been worth the effort of getting up early and fighting the masses for the CHANCE at getting what they wanted. I opted for settling for a good deal and spent my day not fighting any crowds while I finished up my shopping. At some point I ended up in Las Vegas for some reason and tweeted about it (#WarlordsOfVegas). I chose to enjoy my time. Can’t put a price on that.

Speaking of Black Friday Shopping and burying hookers in the desert, The World of Warcraft’s PVP season started today. Bring on the rated BG’s and arenas and such! If you are one who enjoys dabbling in the digital violence, you’ll probably want to make sure you have plenty of honor and gear to get yourself set up. Maybe some gold too because why not? Bajheera discusses the WoD Garrison building that is a must-have for anyone who enjoys PVP – the Gladiator’s Sanctum. This is a building that will help get you set up for PVP quite quickly by providing honor, gear, and gold. Not to mention some potential epic titles and gear in the Colosseum. Enjoy your time while getting max gains from it.

The Gladiator Sanctum – It’s like Black Friday shopping in Vegas!
