I was with Mazal (my Blood-Elf rogue on Arathor) and after I got exalted with the Shado Pan, I went to the Isle of Thunder to do my daily PvP-quest-chain.
Everything went fine. I hardly met a soul.
On my way back, when I arrived in Horde’s camp, I saw an Alliance Death Knight fighting some of the guards. He had direction towards the Fel Reaver Robot (Made for War daily). As usual, I just stealthed and went all the way around to hand in my quest and not to disturb him.
From an other server where I have hordes, a RPPvP-realm (Defias Brotherhood), we kind of let each other quest without bothering each other. There is a kind of truce on Isle of Thunder so we can quest without ganking each other. It happens, of course, but it’s rare.
On Arathor, it has mostly been like that too. But in fact, especially lately, I have been attacked several times, sometimes with a happy end (for me) sometimes not.
So my first thought was to hand in my quests and go on. I did so. Handed in my Moganite and everything and I was about to leave, but then, I thought: Hell no! Alliance has become more ganky here around, so he is going to pay for the others. Pity for him!
I stealthed and went back to Bloodý who was taking his Army of Deads out to fight the big robot. Exactly the best situation: I could use the robot to my advantage and backstab him to death without him understanding what hit him! Hahaha! He will be really surprised!
So I did: got behind him, Ambush, Ambush, garrote, kidney shot, backstab, backstab… back… How comes the dude almost doesn’t lose any health? Am I hitting him at all?
Yes I was, and had a dps at around 20k.
It looked like he didn’t notice me at all. He was just fighting the robot with me on his back like a mosquito going <backstab, eviscerate, backstab, backstab — checking my daggers to see if they are still working — checking lag – checking dps — eviscerate, backstab, back…>
And then, the robot was down and I had him at about 1/3 health down…
Erh… No, not like you think: I got about 1/3 down, he still had… well… 2/3. Right now, on armory, he has 545k HP, but back then, maybe he was buffed or had other gear on, he had a bit over 610k… I should maybe have noticed that before I went on his back. And 2/3 of 610k is… well… 406k wich is more than me… Plate… and… Ho? He? Runetap! Back at 100% health… How handy… and such a nice animation!
Then he turned around, a bit like he just noticed me and was going like: “Your turn, now, baby!”.
Erh… Gotta go!
I ran away with the Death Knight on my back, smoke-bombed his death grip (wasn’t really interested in a close encounter with this giant). So I was kind of going: “ShitShitShitShitShitShitShitShit” and running away, burning almost every cooldown I had left. Whatever could help. If I had, I would even have taken a mana-potion! He had a couple of spells on me, but nothing I couldn’t live through and definitely nothing I wanted to stop to check on.
He finally gave up… Well… I was halfway to Pandaria.
Ha! He couldn’t catch me! Wasn’t I cool, he? He? HA!
Anyway, I put him on my Kill on Sight list with a note: “I tried to kill him and failed miserably. He might be mad at me, now. Get off his way”.
And this is EXACTLY what I intend to do: Get off his way!
P.S.: Later on, I killed an Alliance warrior questing there. That’ll teach him!
