“The rules are, there are no rules” –

My somewhat Gank free status seems to have been revoked. I have been getting a little cocky. Not wandering the world in my Pvp gear Doing stuff in the same place for a long time. Standing on the shore **and not levitating in the middle of the water while fishing. Not being as aware of my surroundings, and I have been dying because of it.
Sometimes they wait for me to finish doing what ever I am doing, and then attack. Sometimes they attack me anyway – hunt me down when I rez and do it all over again. If they look like they are going to hang around – it’s easier to log.
There was a rogue in southshore when I was fishing for Oily Blackmouths to see if making Free action pots for Pvp was going to be easy to do. I killed him. He wasn’t a very good rogue, cause they normally kidney jab me to death quite easily in Bgs. He didn’t come back which surprised me, because the DK another time that got the drop on me, and killed me while I doing a daily came back after he had done his, and tried to kill me again. He failed twice. I was in Pvp gear then, and more cautious.
The most – “I’m a gonna tear my hair out” experience was a Pally in my eternal fire cave, mostly the pallys that go there are bots. They run around in circles, if they happen to attack you, it’s because you got in their way. I meld, and they skip right over me, I thought he was a bot untill he made a beeline for me, killed me, and again, and again. I managed to kill him once. Then he just camped me – because I was counting on him getting bored and giving, up I kept rezing. Nope.
I know it’s a Pvp server, but surely why can’t everyone be like the three horde I found in a nother cave in various intervals. They didn’t attack me, I didn’t attack them – and we all went about our business. Sure I had more health, and was in pvp gear, but one of them was even nice enough to wave at me.
Even though it hasn’t been too bad, I just don’t have the urge to gank. ( though a flight master killer spree in the Barrens one time when we were bored was fun. ) I do not attack first – but I will defend and try and outlive you by any means necessary. I will run, meld, disperse, fear you into other mobs. Pot – heal what ever it takes to not die.
Please though if you do want to try and gank me.
1. Let me change into my Pvp gear. I have 1000 resilience and will be able to put up much more of a fight
2. Let me finish what ever I was doing – Eg killing my mob
3. Wait untill I’m full health and mana – so the fight is fair.
4. Then we must bow to each other, as respectful opponents –
and then only then shall the World Pvp commence .
Because I implore you – surely a victory tastes sweeter if you are against a worthy opponent. Ganking people when you have an unfair advantage is not honorable conduct outside a battleground. ( Said with tounge in cheek.. )
I’m getting there! – slowly.. Surely..
