The are only a few reasons for people taking Rez sickness.1: Being camped on a PVP server. Sometimes it just isn't worth the hassle and you don't want to quit the game for a while.2: Game glitch makes it so recovering your body is impossible.I've had to do this twice in the past month. I fell through the planet in icecrown while dismounting from an Argent horse in a weird place. (I couldn't be thrown upwards and it bugged out)3: Getting back from your body when you are surrounded will just take too long or cause as much damage. Of these, only 3 is someone being lazy. No one likes #1 and #2 is not something you can avoid often.Getting rid of rez sickness in case 2 would probably be enough for most people.

Arguably being camped is part of the pvp server experience and players should roll pve if they don't want to deal with it and if they want to stay pvp either deal with it via pvp (log your main, call in help, etc) or deal with the high gold cost for the convenience of getting out of the camping.

"Getting rid of rez sickness in case 2 would probably be enough for most people."I should have made that last sentence more clear.I seriously think it is the only spot where it should be changed.No one likes being camped, but, well, if you want out, deal with it. Either take the money hit or get do something about it.

I'm interested in knowing where you get affected by #2. Got coords? :)

I agree. I think the last time I actually walked up to a Spirit Healer and asked to be rezzed was on my first character back before I knew you could rez at your body. Since then even if I get killed in a pack of mobs that I would aggro on rezzing, I do so anyway and just run as far as I can. About half the time I'm able to get away, the other half of the time I can't, but it's better than -10% to everything and being effectively unable to play for a while... however being knocked off the world, falling through a game hole, or some other nonesense is something I don't feel I should be penalized for.

For option 2 they should just tie dying in a bugged position to the Unstuck option in Help (where you get hearthed back to your home if stuck in a weird place).Other than that, last time I had to use the Spirit Healer was 2-3 months ago when I died from cancelling my chute after being dismounted over WG, and landing on an outside slope of the area, high above ground.

yea, #3 is laziness, but you forgot to mention that #1 is a symptom of addiction. lawl.

I wouldn't say #1 is addiction so much as "I got 20 minutes and I want to get X done. This guy is going to ruin that."I can't give coordinates, I didn't even think about checking.On a side note, don't fly above an island in nagrand with the rocket helmet from area 52 and use it. You are going to be seeing a spirit rez when that chute fails early...
