A repost of something I wrote on our guild forums, mostly to keep MW amused with her recent PvP forum drama.
So there I was, minding my own business in Tanaris. I was peacefully riding along avoiding the local wildlife when a flagged Nightelf hunter rode up beside me and started making rude gestures. I tactfully ignored him and rode on.
He followed, making ever more persistent attempts to annoy me. I stopped for a bit and looked at him. I rode around him in circles. I even lowered myself to his level and taunted him. I had him follow me for a bit, and then I circled once more and gave out one final taunt....... and then Bleedingclaw ran over the top of him, killing in 2 shots. I barely had time to get an attack in!
I was 56 Rogue. Bleedingclaw is a post-kara 70 Shamman. The poor fool nightelf was a 56 hunter.
Ok, so sure there was elements of schoolyard bullying "(I'll get my big brother to bash you up!)" and I could have taken him easily enough alone but it was just so funny to mislead him into a suicidal attack.
A lesson for all you pvpers out there: Sometimes, your victim will pull a bait and switch and you will bite off far more than you can chew. In this case, BC, Donkey and I were grouped together to do some exploring along the coast of tanaris and I had gone on ahead due to slower mount. BC was following along about 30 seconds behind. All I had to do was delay long enough for the cavalry to arrive.
