Whenever I have some free WoW time, I have been doing some quests on my latest character Fuchsia, the pink haired Deathknight. I have been playing her with my brother’s Deathknight and lately while questing in Hellfire something funny happened that I wanted to share.
We were doing some of the quests north of Thrallmar to kill cannons and things when this Orc Shaman ran up and /slapped me. I hadn’t stolen any kills from him and didn’t recognize his name as someone I may know, so I /questioned his actions. He then /spit on me, so my brother followed him around making rude gestures until he eventually flew away. I figured he was probably just one of those players who really gets into the whole Alliance vs Horde thing and shrugged it off, but hoped that maybe someday I would meet him again in a PvP setting, and be able to teach him a lesson.
A few hours later we picked up the quest to capture the 3 Hellfire PvP spots. It was the middle of the night so we figured we’d probably be safe from level 80+ characters hanging around the zone, so we flew on over and flagged to capture. We didn’t run into any defending Hordies on the first two, but as we sat on our mounts at the third, my brother noticed he was getting dotted. It was just a Warlock a few levels higher than ourselves, so we both dismounted and she was dead in a few seconds. (For anyone who doesn’t know, Deathknights are a bit OP starting out, lol). I felt a little bad for the little lock, but she had attacked us!
We waited around to see if she’d be back for more, and sure enough, she was! We aren’t on a PvP server, so there’s always the option to just wait until your PvP flag wears off before resurrecting, but maybe she didn’t realize that. After we’d killed her a couple times I guess she asked for help in general because who flies in on their tawny wind rider but the nasty Orc Shaman from before!
I shouted on skype, “Oh it’s him! From before! GET HIM!” and we both laughed and laughed as we destroyed him. I felt justice had been served, and we both /pointed and /laughed at him until he released. We then camped him a little, but as I mentioned before if someone ever doesn’t want to PvP, then can just wait until their flag drops and go about their business, but he and the Warlock submitted themselves to Deathknight ownage over and over.
The Orc was taking his sweet time rezing after dieing about 7 times at our hands and we noticed the Warlock had rezed and was no where to be found. I suggested letting her go because she wasn’t the one who had so rudely /slapped me earlier, but as we were discussing that she ran up to me and /laughed! I /laughed back, a bit confused about what she found so humorous, as I killed her yet again, and then mounted back up to look for that nasty Shaman.
A few seconds later we found out what the crazy Warlock had been laughing about, because who should show up but a level 80 Orc Shaman of the same name as the level 62 Shaman (only spelled correctly). Unfortunately for him we were both in flight so he couldn’t kill us, and even more unfortunate for him is the fact that being a level 80 is no longer intimidating. I quickly logged onto my level 85 Paladin and was in Hellfire in about a minute.
He was sitting on his flyer at the Overlook when I found him taunting my brother’s level 61 Deathknight who was keeping an eye on him from a safe distance until I got there. He saw me and started to fly away, but I caught him with a Hammer of Wrath and he was toast. When he rezed, he mounted, flew up to where I was, flame shocked me and fell to his death, which made me laugh so hard I nearly peed myself. I killed him a couple times until a level 85 Warlock showed up.
My Paladin has no gear, so I kept at a safe distance until my brother’s nicely geared Rogue arrived, and he took her out as I kept an eye out for the Shaman.
Anyway we killed them for a while, but then as I was waiting for the Shaman to rez, I got a tell from an Alliance asking if I could quit killing him. I asked if he was the Orc Shaman and he said that he was and that he was just trying to get some quests done when these two Deathknights showed up and wouldn’t stop killing him. I explained that I was one of the Deathknights and that I would continue to kill him because he’d /slapped and /spit on me without reason earlier. He seemed to have a bit of a nerdrage and tried to say something along the lines of he’d been questing in that area first, which is why he’d been all rude with his emotes, but he logged off before I could reply.
He logged back onto his level 62 Shaman and stood in front of my 85 Pally, still flagged PvP and said /sorry. I am much more forgiving than my brother, so when I said I was going to let the guy go do his quests, my brother quickly left his one-sided battle with the Warlock and headed over to where we were. I said /sorry to the Shaman as my brother’s Rogue backstab one-shotted him and then danced on his corpse. That was the last we saw of him.
We killed the Warlock a lot more, confused as to why she didn’t just leave. My brother logged over to his Horde character to check to see if our Shaman buddy was still online, but he wasn’t, so he messaged the Warlock to see what her story was because we were both starting to feel a bit bad about slaughtering her. She was the low level Lock we’d been killing earlier, and she said she was just trying to leave at this point but kept getting attacked by a Rogue. My brother promised to leave her alone, explaining that we’d really only been interested in enacting revenge on the Shaman. She laughed and understood and commented that he’d seemed like a bit of an idiot. Then, after two hours of hilarious PvP in which neither of us had died, my brother and I went back to questing.
As I’m writing this I am only now realizing that these players were leveling alts that were the same class as their mains… Lol, wtf?
I like to think of myself as a pretty kind and courteous player, but some people deserve a good camping now and again! You know what they say, Hell hath no fury like a Night Elf Chick scorned!
