Stuck behind the boxes in WSG with you.

A few of the rated BG’s I have been in we have been having issues with a fear bug, and our team has been getting feared into walls/stuck behind various things.  The only solution has been to life grip the person out.

I feel like I should at least spread this solution around because I don’t think some priests are aware of this. ( Shouldn’t be bugged in the first place!!)

We were doing a Rated BG, and a Horde Pally was feared by myself into the boxes in the horde flag room. My team started to kill him while laughing at him.   I told them stop ( killing him).  We left him there, and I can imagine the raging he would have been doing on his vent. We were two flags down anyway,  we weren’t going to win.

We could have killed him, and at least let him respawn,  but I figured the times I’ve needed to life grip my team out of walls, and gotten no quarter for that, there was no reason to help them.

I could have gone so far to demonstrate a life grip in front of him to put the idea in his head, but no. I could have been a better person, I assumed eventually their priest would figure it out like I had to, but knew,  that  when she left him alone,  and ran out of that room, that she didn’t know.

He was still there one horde flag room visit a few min later.

It’s kind of on moral/cheating grey ground.  The bug in this case could have been to our advantage,  and if we had won because of that I would not have felt good about it.  I will take responsibility because I verbally stopped actions that would have eventually free’d him by default, and  I explained the consequences to my team of leaving him there,  that he was stuck.

There is also this faction difference.  He was the enemy,  freeing him from the bug would have been a mercy, and I doubt he would have responded kindly by refusing to kill or heal when it came to it.  How could I free  him knowing that he could be the instrument of my own death. ( yes very melodramatic)

Would you pass a person in distress?  No

Would you look a Horde pally in the eye, knowing you could free him from his confines, and then leave him. Alone?

You may now address me as Corporal Zahraah. Obtained from BG’s that I didn’t have moral grey areas I needed to consider.

    That’s an interesting dilemma! I mean, it’s not like you purposefully knocked him back there…it just happened.And sometimes in PVP it IS actually better not to kill someone. Quite the quandary!

    It reminds me of PVP in another MMO I used to play, Ragnarok Online, where my class (Wizard) was able to freeze enemy players in a block of ice for up to 15-20 seconds. Once frozen, I could then use a powerful Lightning spell and kill them. One time I was defending a node solo and an enemy player entered, I froze him, and then decided to just keep freezing him for the rest of the battle. Sure, I could have killed him, but he would just come back and possibly kill me. This way, I could lock him down safely for the rest of the fight. Cheap? I guess. But it let me win. >:D

    As a horde priest, I’ve Life gripped my friends out of sticky situations. They love me for me 😛 BUT there is one spot in the Horde Flag room of WSG, where I cannot Life Grip my friends out of. If you are looking at the Horde Flag, it is in the left corner of the room (not the nook where the flag is).

    I had a rogue friend got feared there, and stood there the entire game. No one could target him to kill him, and I couldn’t life grip him out. He was so pissed XD

      Hi,I love the new star wars background! But, I think that a betetr one could be on like the Shire one where you guys could put pictures of Tython at the top and bottom and connect it with grass.Not to be a downer, but I like the ones that have an actual image in the center that is really simple, rather than a solid black or like the other one, a weird blue Sorry
