Two weeks ago I needed 853 WSG flag caps to get to exalted with the Silverwing Sentinels for my Justicar achievement. As of this morning I need 700 and I thank Warsong Gulch weekend for a good chunk of that. With the renewed vigor with which I’m going after Justicar I set a goal of getting 50 WSG flag caps each week last weekend, which I’d gotten this week by Friday. But between Friday afternoon and this morning I got an additional 50 flag caps as WSG matches were queuing in less than a minute. If Warsong Gulch weekend were every weekend I’d be able to finish off the rep grind for the Silverwing in seven weeks or less, instead of three months. Of course I could probably do it faster if I did nothing else but ran WSG matches but I find that if I get that single-minded about something it can lead to heavy burn-out long before I achieve a long term goal such as this.
It might sound like a bit of a stretch to achieve 50 flag caps week after week, yet it’s really not a daunting prospect. Three winning matches a day after I get home from work and before my wife gets home and maybe the off flag cap if I still need it. And whatever I feel like doing on off-raid nights is all it takes. I’d easily attained the 50 I needed for this week by Friday which still gives me plenty of time on the weekends to do dailies and continue work toward Loremaster.
