Great list, I really wish a short etiquette list would pop up for the person challenging every time they used the /duel command more than twice in 10 seconds."If someone declines your challenge, leave that player alone." Please, don't spam a person who says "No, I don't PvP/duel" with all kinds of crap about being a bad player if you don't do EVERYTHING ingame. I don't want to PvP, and most PvPers I know would rather kill themselves than visit Mauradon for a 5 second chat with some silly ghost."Don't challenge players more than several levels above or below you. Challenging someone five levels or more below you would certainly be a social faux pas." But it's okay to accept the challenge from some little kiddy 20 levels under you, and also feel free to go all out on him or gimp yourself enough to make the defeat as insulting as possible. Hey, if you want to be an idiot and make up silly rules like "no pets" when challenging a hunter twice your level, don't come crying if said hunter decides not to bother wasting any ammo on you and instead grab her staff to give you a sound beating. Consider it a lesson in counting: yes, 80 is a lot higher than 35. (Mind you, I only accepted -after- the duel spam without any whispers, the whole "I'm only 35 so no pets allowed" just sweetened the deal.) *very evil grin*

A while ago a friend of mine had just started a new Nightelf toon. Long story short, while still in the starting area she had someone with a rogue probably about level 10 keep bugging her to duel with her level 5. This moron kept following her around. So I got on my level 80 warrior and went out there to "encourage" the rogue to do something useful like like die in a campfire. Despite some emotes, and trying to be polite, said brain dead person persisted till I shouted out for him to lay off. This creep then preceeds to challange me to a duel. Normally I wouldn't accept, but this time I did and just stood there for about 15 seconds and did nothing, Then I fired off a thunderclap and killed him without even targeting him. Finally the idiot got the message and left the area. I have had players accidentally challange me to a duel by clicking on the wrong toon when it has been crowded in Goldshire. I usually ask them if they are serious. Almost always you get "OMG I clicked the wrong target" and the duel is withdrawn in a hurry.
