First off the boat


In Strand of the Ancients  you can stand on the prow of the Alliance boat on a pointy bit  and jump off the boat and onto the dock before most of the other people,  and often into the arms of the waiting horde,  or if your lucky straight into a demo.

Most people wait until the boat stops before getting off,  and then are seconds behind you,  while you,  the ‘cowboy’ is looking left to right wondering where their back up is.

(The horde side doesn’t have that kind of prow on the front of their boat,  so they are all forced to wait untill it docks to disembark, or if they are a DK jump off early)

When in the Battle for Gilneas if you run to Waterworks from the Alliance side,  you can either go the shorter way in front of that  house nearest the flag at WW  and water or you can go behind it.  If you go in front,  it is faster,  but again your often the first one there,  and will get targeted first by the horde and have died by the time everyone has caught up.

It happens to me in Eye of the storm as well  if taking FRR or BET  that even taking into consideration the lag difference that makes me appear in front of everyone else,   my many many hours of PVP mean I have learned the more efficient ways of getting places that little bit faster. If I don’t wait for everyone to catch up I will die.

Being ‘first’ off the boat or the eager Bever isn’t ideal.  Best case you’re a distraction,  and might last long enough to give your team time to get there while you play the pinata, so it’s safer to run with the pack,  even if the pack is a little slower,  otherwise you’re not doing anyone favours by being the first to die.

    As a Healer and Paladin? If those fools want to spend 15-20 seconds killing me while the vehicles drive off? Great.

    Horde *can* do something very similar in SotA. I frequently do when I want to make sure I’m driving.
