"They're just fishing, you know?"Maybe for now...until they get tired of it and start ganking all lowbies coming out of the war room!Is that what you want? Lowbie blood all over your hands!? You make me sick!

Sometimes, I really wish I could gank my own faction. (Mostly when I'm mining, which is a completely different issue. ) Your post has made me want to go stand outside the War Room and bathe in the blood of the semi-innocents.

Heh, reminds me of the time I was in Ironforge with my bank alt and some kid was berating everyone in Local Defence because he'd been trying to gank two tauren who were fishing there, but the tauren kept kicking his ass and then going back to fishing. Nobody cared to help him, so he started calling us all losers for failing to defend our city and even accused me of being a Horde alt when I remarked, "I may only be a level 2 bank alt, but I'm not too worried about a couple cows with fishing poles." We had way too much fun with the poor kid.Lesson: If you can't handle the ganking of peaceful fisherfolk, do not complain to Local Defence or you will be mocked by bank alts.

@ElvendudeI share your sentiments. And I actually, much to my glee, actually got to kill a member of my own faction for being an ass just before Wrath came out. Some gnome mage was causing trouble for a couple horde who were trying to fish up Ironjaw. They weren't even fighting back. The priest got killed a few times, but the pally would just bubble and heal himself. I told the mage that he should stop bothering them, afterall, they were just trying to fish. Now, if he had ignored me, or simply said "If I see flagged horde, I kill them." I would have left it at that, but the mage was incredibly rude to me. Annoyed, I continued my fishing while he continued harassing the horde. Well... this all happened during the zombie plague event, so not long later, said mage managed to get infected and turned into a Ghoul. Seconds after that I finished turning him into a pincusion and happily went back to my fishing. ^_^ After all... just as it was his duty to attack any flagged horde he saw, it was my duty to keep our city streets zombie-free, right?? ;)

There used to be a bug or an exploit I suppose, where the horde could gank their own faction.There's a quest in stonetalon where you're asked some questions about a book you're given to read. If you answer incorrectly, you're given the mark of shame (or something), which originally made you hostile with your home cities. I don't think players could attack you, just NPCs. Anyway, people would go to the Battlemaster Room in Orgrimmar, jump up on top of those cloth bits going around the room and ranged the battlemasters. The battlemasters when they go nuts and started attacking everyone around them and back in the lvl 60 days, this'd be pretty much certain death.It was fixed a long time ago, so don't go trying it.

Meh! people fishing in cities are only trying to get an achievement, personally everytime i go to ironforge i head past that pool in the Warlock area just to double check for them.What's the difference between them getting a fishing achievement and me getting the city defender achievement?

I don't care about achievements, so it never occurred to me that's what they were there for. At least not at first. I saw a group of 3 T6 geared 70 horde fishing in IF shortly after the achievement system went live (Before Wrath went live). It never occurred to me there would be an achievement as inane as fishing in opposing cities, so I assumed they were there looking for a fight. So I killed them. All. 3 or 4 times (after all, they were well geared, but only in PvE gear).Achievements suck.
