Actually, cooperating with the enemy can be rewarding in its own right. as Alliance on Shadow Council, every now and then I find myself in a zone with Hordies that are all trying to get through the same sludge. The other day, I was trying to get my alt through Durnholme (the regular durnholme, not the instance) when a forsaken started pulling along side me.With just a few emotes it became clear that we were both trying to get to the top, and took turns tagging the mobs as we worked our way to the top.She got the first kill, then waited for the respawn for me to get mine. We couldn't say a word, but there was a real sense of accomplishment that we were able to work together as well as we did.

Being on a PvP realm, and hating PvP (not to mention how much I suck at it) I like doing this. Not only does being nice and helping someone make it less likely that they'll kill you, but I always get a nice warm feeling inside after having a friendly emote exchange with a random ally. Especially if I can get away with cheekily /patting a gnome ^_^

And then you shout at me for ignoring your friendly emote patter and caving aforementioned alliances skulls in. :P

Hear, hear.Since "Rescue OOX-17/TN!" takes a fair amount of time to respawn, I shadowed an Undead warlock who had begun the escort quest moments before I could. He was below-level and was nearly overwhelmed at one point, but I stepped in and helped.Not fifteen minutes later, as I was finally accompanying that robo-chicken, the warlock showed up and ran with me all the way to Steamwheedle. Good times.

I've had that - running through a neutral area, I came across a Troll who started following me and waving. I waved back, and she gestured towards an area I'd been planning on hitting up later, as I needed to level up three or four times before I'd be able to hold my own against the MOBs.After I indicated that I'd be happy to run through there with her, we went to collect one of her friends (a blood elf), and the three of us merrily hacked our way through the MOBs that would've killed any of us in pretty short order if we'd been on our own.We couldn't properly talk, but it was fun and immensely satisfying, and I'd gladly help them out again if the opportunity arose.

My (at the time) 17 subtlety rogue got "the Noble" directly through the efforts of a friendly Tauren warrior and Belf paladin. I stealthed all the way into Tanaris, then snuck through quite a bit of the desert on my way to the Un'goro crater before I started aggroing everything in sight. We were all too low for the area, but with their help, I made it through. The warrior tanked, the paladin healed, and I DPSed to my heart's content. In all honesty, my blows made pretty much no difference, but Expose Armor made the tank's job a ton easier, and so they were happy to escort me along.Inside the crater was a different issue. The first time Devilsaur came around the corner, we ALL ran. No amount of armor reduction was going to help us there.
