Fog said at the last AvA Club that we could move our home campaign to Volendrung if we wanted to. I have made the decision to do so and all my activity will now be on Volendrung.
PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU CHANGE YOUR HOME CAMPAIGN YOU LOSE YOUR LEADERBOARD AND CREDITS TOWARDS END OF CAMPAIGN REWARDS. YOU ARE BASICALLY HITTING THE RESET BUTTON ON BOTH OF THOSE!
That being said, I've had a LOT of fun on Volendrung the last two days! There is good activity in all three alliances. Many of the Ebonheart Players are low level (sub-veteran), but they play with skill and knowledge. I was in a pick-up group yesterday with 4 other veterans and myself along with about 18 non-veteran players. We held off a mostly-veteran DC group twice our size on two different occasions. Later we lost several keeps to them but seriously delayed them each time for at least 30-45 minutes.
Some keys to how these sub-veteran players are being viable against veteran players:
1. First and foremost, LOTS of heals. at least 1/3 of the team members at any given time are using Resto staff and poppling heals.
2. Crowd Control - knock downs, negate fields, etc.
3. Staying together as a slightly spread group and staying at range from enemies.
If you see me in one of the sub-rooms of AvA Hopesfire on Raidcall, that means I'm in Volendrung AvA. Feel free to join me when you see me there. I encourage any of you that have been frustrated with the Hopesfire action to come over to Volendrung and try it out as your guest campaign. It's up to you if you later decide to change your home campaign or not.
