No screenshots for this one, folks, because I forgot to take them. /facepalm
I was on my Rogue, Brohoof, whom I am gearing for PvP. He hasn’t got the best gear yet, but we all had to start somewhere (something those PvP elitists don’t seem to understand).
I was in Elwynn Forest when I saw a few messages in the LocalDefense channel. Five, to be precise. I knew where the attack was taking place, and headed over to where Guard Thomas is to check it out. I stealthed as I approached, whereupon I saw a Level 69 Undead named Spaiderhunt-Anachronos — who was flagged.
Anyone who has read this blog will understand what my feelings are about PvP and flagging. But if you’re not familiar with said feelings, then put simply they are: If you flag for PvP, you are giving anyone and everyone permission to attack and/or kill you.
In Spaiderhunt’s case, it was the latter. I quickly flagged myself – on account of the fact you now need to do that before attacking another flagged player – and delivered a fatal blow with a quick Ambush. I then killed her again for good measure when she ressed.
As I waited for her to respawn, her corpse disappeared. Thinking she had ressed, I looked around for her, but to no avail. I was about to leave when a Level 100 Night Elf Druid turned up, also from Anachronos. Thinking it was someone else there to investigate the attack, I was about to tell them that it had been dealt with when they said ‘Can you stop.’
It was Spaiderhunt, and she had logged onto an Alliance character to berate me.
I was quick to point out that she flagged first, meaning that anyone had free reign to attack her, but she kept whining about me killing her and flat out begged me to stop.
I said I would — then killed her twice more when she relogged her Undead.
This was probably a dick move, but consider it like this.
Flagging for PvP is basically saying ‘come get some.’ There are no rules on world PvP, meaning that a Level 69 who flags can just as easily be jumped by a Level 100. If Spaiderhunt wanted a fair fight, she should have gone into a battleground.
Anyway, that’s all. Spaiderhunt then did the sensible thing and waited for her PvP to go off before she ressed. Then she hearthed away — with Brohoofs mocking laughter no doubt ringing in her rotten ears.
