I'm gonna defend Madcow. Cow's second point is kinda right -- often, gankers gank because it brings out the opposing 70s and then the real fun starts. It's like the Alliance raiding the XRoads: just a way to start an impromptu battle.MAdcow's first point is right too -- IF you keep in mind the difference between ganking and griefing. Ganking is just killing a player that is grey to you. Griefing is... well, we all know what it is. Griefers got a cog loose in their heads. They just ain't right. No one can reasonably defend griefers.But the first time a random ?? came by, dismounted, blew me up, and then remount to ride away --- I grew eyes in the back of my head. And those eyes have won me a fair number of fights where otherwise I would have been jumped from behind. I learned to see the whole environment around me, to pick my spots for grinding and farming, keep in mind where my escape routes are. Getting ganked HAS made me a better, more attentive player.Heck -- my new-found paranoia has helped me keep my Warrior shouts up, since Demoralizing Shout drops rogues and druids out of stealth. I start every fight with one, and more than once I've found a sneaky rogue (or two, once three!) because of it.
