I was standing in Goldshire on Navitas, watching all the duels, when I get a challenge from a Rogue named Deraine. Since I have DuelResponse active, the request is blocked. But that doesn’t stop Deraine trying again … and again … and again. I lost count after the fifth challenge.
At first, I tried to stop her challenging me without resorting to ignore. I just told her that I wasn’t getting any challenges appearing on my screen. I lost that part of the conversation due to the large number of people in Goldshire.
However, I got the rest of it.
I’m not sure if blocking trades also blocks duel requests. I don’t see how that would work, given that they’re completely different. But Deraine still wants to duel me. I decide to go to plan B and tell her that I have an anti-duel addon.
Right, I’ve told her. Perhaps now she’ll go away and bother someone else.
Whenever I get a duel request, I always inspect the person who issued it. Nine times out of ten, they are fully PvP geared. Deraine didn’t have full PvP, but she still had more resilience than I did – so any duel would have been a waste of (my) time. And her PvE gear was superior to mine as well.
Full epic gear is hardly ‘crap’.
I have three pieces of PvP gear. She had gear with far better stats than mine. So again, any duel would have been pointless.
What does your dagger have to do with anything? You’ve got two of them, I don’t.
Clearly, Deraine only wanted to duel me so she could beat me with minimum effort. She challenged me, a (mostly) PvE geared player with crap gear to a duel against her, a (mostly) PvP geared player with full epics. Yet another case of Elitism. “Your gear isn’t as great as mine, and for that I want to duel you.”
I put Deraine on ignore and continue watching the other duels going on. A few minutes later, I get another whisper.
Holy crap. I told her I had an ANTI-DUEL ADDON. If that doesn’t scream “I don’t want to duel” loudly and clearly, I don’t know what does.
After sending this whisper, Deraine logged back onto her Rogue. So I decided to explain things to her in a way she’d (hopefully) understand.
When I tried to convey this fact to her from my only Alliance alt, she stuck THAT on ignore as well. In fact, just to tell her about this blog, I had to create a whole new character. I hope you’re reading this Deraine. As I said, apologise to me and I’ll take this down.
Your choice, fool.
