(01/12-2022) -Meet “Olexis”, a notorious ganker in Freewind Post. He goes by many different names – Olexis (druid), Olegsis (death knight), Olestraza (priest), and Olexa (rogue – his Horde spy). I don’t know for sure if he has more. He had a mage character too, which I killed a couple of times, but haven’t seen him in a long time.
What all these characters have in common is that they are all well-geared (though not necessarily “Best in Slot”) and they are all ganking in Freewind Post. It’s obvious that the player behind these characters is an experienced deviant and a total noob when it comes to playing these classes.
For some reason, Olexis has stationed all these characters near the inn in Freewind Post. He targets low-level players, and can’t kill anyone at level 80 unless they are AFK or badly-geared. He usually ganks with his druid, the lowest-geared character.
If I’m online, I’ll come and put an end to Olexis’ reign of terror and kill him with my rogue.
He logs off with a triumphant feeling after attempting to kill a couple of low-level monsters with the means of a ganker, as described in the article Life and Death of a Ganker.
But he’s not done yet! He has one more weapon in his arsenal – his death knight, Olegsis, who proudly wields his Wrathful gear, obtained through hard-earned euros from mom and dad and bought in the shop.
Oh! Yes! Olegsis is a force to be reckoned with, and the perfect weapon to finish the job!
So, it goes like this: if I kill his shitty druid, he takes out his shitty death knight. Sometimes he takes out his army of death to “trash the place”. That means killing people of low level that might be here and the flight master who is level 65 (but elite, that’s right). You surely need to be best in slot and use your most powerful abilities for that… Especially when you are a noob.
I have gone on his death knight with my rogue. Not to kill him, as it is impossible since he is blood (tank) and often has over 40k HP, but just to see how far down I could get him.
I managed to get him down to half health before I had to run away. It’s clear that he isn’t a good player – he buys gear to make himself hard to kill and then just mashes some random abilities to take out unsuspecting opponents. But even with that, I’m still impressed that I was able to make it as far as I did.
Now, I used to stay away while he was with his death knight, except if we were more than one. But now I have moved my paladin down there too. So if he switches to his death knight, I switch to my paladin and kill him.
You can here see me kill his druid and later, his death knight with my paladin. Actually, I was 1 v 1 against him and at the last moment when he was trying to run away from me, another player joined me.
Yes, because his tactic when he comes with his death noob is to run around and kill the low levels while I am hitting on him and then to run away.
Since his ganking tactics have been failing him. He now comes with his priest or druid, only to get quickly killed for his lack of prowess. Then, he switches to his Horde rogue and waits for us to log off to mount a new ganking party.
We usually log off too when he is away.
As a typical ganker, he hasn’t yet realized that his opponents may have spies of their own. We are always watching, and know when he gets back online. We have the advantage, as we know exactly who to bring with us to take him out.
It might take some time for him to understand, given his two-digit IQ, but in the meantime, we can keep gathering honor. (Scorpyo)
