This is exactly why I don't play on a PvP server. As fun as this chaos would be on an occasional basis, I wouldn't want to have my own questing disrupted regularly.I just hope you don't get any nasty comments for this article, though. Some people seem way to put off by PvP occurring on a PvP server.

Yeah, I agree. In fact, I played on Azgalor-US from BC until Cata when I finally moved servers because my guild died. And the only reason that I rolled on a PvP server is because my friends were there. The Isle was so frustrating without a guild group running the dailies with you. I'm glad I am not there for molten front.Madsushi (C. Christian) the former guild Caligulas Pleasures salutes you, but I don't miss you.

I don't pvp much, just some Tol Barad and the occasional bg. Sometimes, I'll participate in a world battle going one, but I don't pvp much, it just isn't my cup of tea. People on pvp servers who complain about pvp are just irritating.

-----------------------------This is exactly why I don't play on a PvP server.

I found this article immensely interesting and amusing, but I'd hate to have to make every quest a stress test or else a gridlocked affair.Though I am curious; rather than camping the ramp to the sanctuary, slowing all their progression, wouldn't it make more sense for them to simply go and do their quests as a group at that point? I doubt a rogue, no matter how good, is going to take on an entire group of players (whether grouped up in an official party or not).

Same here "this is why I didn't roll on a pvp server" coupled with "but you did, so ha ha!".And if they grouped they could coordinate and move as a force united!But, from my BG experience that can't happen often. :-p

Agreed! I don't have any toons on a pvp server for the exact reason also. The chaos IS fun, once in a while. I play on a pve server (Terokkar-US horde side), but there are still people who enjoy pvp and flag themselves on purpose.. or don't realize they've never un-flagged from a previous encounter. One time, one of my guildies (a troll shaman) found himself camped by an Alliance shaman and a DK. He put into guild chat just a little "hey anyone up for some molten front pvp?". I hadn't done my dailies yet, pvp isn't always my cup of tea, but I'm a healer and a paladin (though I'd been in ret spec at the time) so I figured I might be able to help. He'd found a random mage that was helping him, when I got there we decided that since I was already in dps spec, that he'd go resto and I'd "attack" while he kept me alive. It was FUN! The fighting was contained to the 5 of us, so no one else doing dailies was affected by our scuffle. Eventually the other shaman left, and the mage we were running with, so it was just my guildie and I and the DK that just wouldn't quit no matter how much time he spent on the floor. :) Eventually, he ran off. I hadn't even realized we'd be hitting the quest mobs required, or that any of us had been healing wounded soldiers or planting vines. When I went to say hey lets finish our quests, he said.. hey look lets turn in!. So for like a half hour, this little bit of 'world pvp' if you could even call it that, was fun.. but not something I'd want to have to worry about/focus on every time I set foot in a daily quest hub, or for that matter any zone that is shared territory.*side note, I realize this is a rogue column, and as I've stated I'm not a rogue (but I have friends that are!).. but I the title of the article caught my eye. :)

Personally quests for me are simple distractions for the downtime I am not actively dungeoning, raiding, or pvping.If someone wanted to give me a run for my money or pick a fight when I am doing something simply for repair money, I am simply very happy to oblige.

PvP server or not- never knew Chase was #that guy. Make any excuses you want ur a weak piece of _____ if you have to attacking someone questing or engaged in an enemy to defeat them. Downrank all you want I for one will not be supporting any douchery. I like world PvP but I do have some sense of honor. /sad.

I started playing on a PvP server because a friend played there. Now, we are both kinda trapped their by a) our large number of high level alts, b) the other person. ...
