14.11.2022 at 20:30 by Philipp Sattler – If 40 Alliance fighters team up to raid a Horde city, they should perhaps be careful that they don’t all go up in one elevator together. Because otherwise they go down again quickly, but without an elevator.
WoW has changed a lot over time. New features and mechanics have come and gone, and many a tradition has fallen by the wayside. One of them are the regular raids on the capitals of the enemy faction. Hardly a weekend in Classic hasn’t gone by a 40-man squad to smash bosses in Stormwind, Orgrimmar, Ironforge, or Thunder Bluff.
In WoW (buy now) Classic, this tradition has risen again and again, albeit rather rarely. Because apart from fame and glory there was little to gain for the brave heroes of the Horde and Alliance. Nevertheless, it happened from time to time that 40 players got together to set off towards enemy territory. Most of the time they were more successful than this brave bunch of Allianceers.

40 Alliance against a Shaman
Each capital in WoW has its own pitfalls when attacking. Stormwind and Orgrimmar have large gates that you have to go through (because you can’t fly there 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 go up in one of the elevators.
If each hero moves up individually, then the defending Hordler have an easy time. Now you might think it would be a particularly clever idea if the entire raid simply went up together. Well, it might sound logical in theory, but in practice it’s rather semi good. But see for yourself:
A single shaman was enough to stop the Alliance advance 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 up their sleeves at the fall of so many Alliance members.
