The verdant Valley of the Four Winds has long enriched the continent of Pandaria with bountiful fruit, fields of grain, grandiose vegetables, and¡gold
Deepwind Gorge dips below even the Valley¡¯s normal depth, and it¡¯s here that the pandaren have turned the earth, exposing rich veins of gold. Ever since they freed themselves from the tyrannical mogu, the inhabitants of the Valley have made careful, cautious use of these riches, taking only what they need and paying attention to the limits of their land.
But the Alliance and Horde have their own plans for the gleaming metals of the Gorge. Amidst the quarry, filled with dislodged rock and connected by makeshift wooden bridges, both factions will rush for a bonanza of riches that only one can walk away with.
This battleground is extremely fluid. Your team needs to hold two mine flags while defending against enemy carts and perhaps occasionally running a cart of your own.
The simple plan:
Depending on how that works out, reallocate the groups to hold two flags and put pressure on the other team's attempts to run carts.
PUG ON PUG
The clueless players will end up in a big melee over the center mine.
The team that controls the outer mines for the longest time AND prevents the other team from successfully running gold carts home will probably win.
Unlike the other flag battlegrounds, it's difficult in DWG to "D up" a flag and "call incomings". There's too much stuff going on for this to work well. If your team is good enough to hold the center mine permanently and run groups from there to defend the other two, then you are going to win in any case. If the center mine is contested, then the congestion there will block any attempt at coordinated defense.
PUG ON PRO
While it's early, it seems clear that pro teams will destroy pug teams in this battleground. Pros will cap two mines and guard them while running carts through for additional points. Unless the PUG team is tightly organized, which seldom happens, it will not be able to react fast enough to gain an advantage.
Too new to know yet.
