I leveled my main to a 71 but with all the ninjas around I parked her there in the inn. I got a little curious so I rolled a DK which questing wasn't nearly as bad as folks in Northrend with the ninjaing so I have continued playing her. She just got finished with all the starter quests and has made her wall to Hellfire, which currently is crawling with DK's, LOLOL.

Ninjas? Really?Everyone and his grandmother is in Northrend (or outland if you are DK) looking for the same mobs for the same quests. How exactly do you want everyone to act?Take a number and wait for your turn to kill a mob? Meanwhile number 12567 (and I'm number 12568) is reading up on the quest and trying to decide the right way to RP the encounter.Sorry, I'm siding with the Ninjas on this one. Go for what you need. If someone else is standing around and misses it. It'll re-spawn soon enough.

It would be nice if they would take a number. The line isn't that long, why should someone else who was there first have to wait longer than someone who just arrived, because they're jerks?

I agree there, I would be there standing and waiting for a respawn and I'm casting wrath and some jerk comes up behind me and steals my kill. Yes that is a ninja who should have waited his turn.

Ninjas. Really.There's nothing in the game that prevents it, nor should there be, FTR. Perfect example is the cannon ball gathering quest in the Fjord. There's maybe five of us spread out nicely fighting off the proto-drakes and what-not to clear out mobs around some of the cannon balls. All nice and civil, each pretty much standing on their chosen cannon ball. And some slimbag gnome mage runs in and grabs up the cannon balls while we're in combat.So, several people called him out on it and there was much teasing and laughing at his expense. A few minutes later he's in general, qq'ing about being kicked from his quest group. Much more laughing and teasing ensues. Wish I'd asked for an invite. Sounds like a good group.Hasn't really been much of a problem though. Bliz's respawn system seems to be working fairly well. I've never had to wait more than 30 seconds to a minute for pops, even with several dozen players in the area. In fact, at times they popped too fast! (Which was kinda fun, actually.) Okay, the turkeys don't spawn fast enough, but they're so much fun to kill... well... There's plenty of idiots that will just "grab what ya need." No real consequences is awfully appealing sometimes. But there's a ton of nice and helpful players, as well. People that want to experience what Bliz has created, not just play a video game. The rest... well... grab what ya want. And eventually you'll find yourself either a) playing with a bunch of other idiots, or b) finding your own balls and playing with yourself.-Fri

I've had a pretty nice experience on Eitrigg so far. People group up for kills when quest mobs don't spawn in high numbers and to complete other objectives when it makes sense. The only place I've come to hate in only an hour is Gjalerbron in Howling Fjord, where it's been a big, messy free for all.Leveling my Night Elf hunter, because that's the only 70 I had. Easy choice there. :)
