In WoW, if 40 Alliance fighters team up to raid a Horde city, they might have to be careful not to all go in one elevator together. Because otherwise they quickly go down again, but without an elevator.
WoW has changed a lot over time. New features and mechanics have come and gone, and many traditions have been cast aside. One of them is the regular attacks on the capitals of the enemy faction. Hardly a weekend in Classic has gone by for a 40-man team to take down bosses in Stormwind, Orgrimmar, Ironforge or Thunder Bluff.
InWoW (buy now ) Classically, this tradition returns again and again, albeit quite rarely. For beyond fame and glory, there was little to gain for the brave heroes of the Horde and Alliance. Still, it happened from time to time that 40 players got together to make their way into enemy territory. Usually they were more successful than this brave pair of Alliance members.
40 Alliance against a shaman
Each capital in WoW has its own pitfalls when attacking. Stormwind and Orgrimmar have big gates that you have to go through (because you can’t fly to them in Classic). The same goes for Ironforge as well. Donnerfels, on the other hand, is a different house number. There are several paths to leadership here. However, they all have one thing in common. To get there, our heroes have to take one of the elevators up.
If each hero goes up individually, the defending Hordler has it easy. Now you might think it would be a particularly smart idea if the whole heist just went together. Well, it might sound logical in theory, but in practice it’s kinda half right. But see for yourself:
A single shaman (yes, it could have been both the druid on and the shaman on the ledge) was enough to stop the Alliance and wipe out half of it. Granted, there were plenty of other Hordlers waiting in Thunder Bluff. So the shaman would not have been alone. But they didn’t have to intervene and could laugh at the fall of so many Alliance members.
