Newsflash! I encountered a new asshat in WoW!
Truthfully, I’d about gotten to the point that I thought they were all gone… went to play Rift or something, maybe. I honestly hadn’t personally met a true asshat for, well… months.
Seriously, not even in pugs. Maybe some players with poor skills, but not really… well, asshats.
Thankfully, that has changed! I was starting to wonder if there were only nice people in WoW. It worried me, because I personally would consider that to be one of the key signs of the coming apocalypse. You know, right after the rains of frogs.
So, I’d like to have everyone take a moment in silent reflection to thank Ihascookies of Dragon Guardians on the Kael’thas server. He has single handedly pulled me back from the brink and reminded me that, yes, true asshats are still alive and well.
I hadn’t heard anything bad about Dragon Guardians before, but you see them around the Horde side of the server. At least now I have a face to go with the guild tag… that of a dick.
The guy managed to perfectly nail my one criterion for an idiot; engaging in PvP against targets that cannot possibly hurt them back, as far away from possible threats like level 85s being called in as he could get.
Laugh at this one with me…
I’ve got a new DK on the server, level 60. I’m tooling around Un’goro Crater doing the last leveling of Skinning/Mining before hitting Hellfire.
I’ve completed 300 Mining, so I’m working on Skinning. I’m attacking the plentiful raptors.
Ihascookies has himself flagged, and spends 5 minutes following me around, on his drake, standing on top of me and wiggling, in the hopes I’d accidentally hit him while trying to loot/skin.
I went around doing my own business, figuring he’d HAVE to get bored at some point.
Nope, over 5 minutes on top of me while I ran around. And hey, it really was a massive pain to keep trying to click on the mbs instead of him, his method was very, very successful.
Finally, I gave up. I went ahead, clicked on him, and he instantly dismounted and killed me. Then he camped on me.
That’s right. He camped me.
I logged, not in anger, but just because I figured he’d get bored after about 10 minutes.
I logged back in, and he was in an instance, so I guess I was right.
Isn’t that amazing? On a non-PvP server, camping a 60 with an 85, in a zone as far as humanly possible from being interrupted by another level 85. How badly must your PvP skills suck if you are that desperate to kill someone else, but that afraid to fight someone on equal footing?
Anyway, grats to Ihascookies, and grats to Dragon Guardians, player tool of the week and guild tools of the week.
You have restored my lack of faith in humanity.
