See all the comments on the Encrypted Text column this post is referencing?I was one of the people who thought griefing players trying to get their dailies done was fairly naff. World PVP in general is fine by me - that's the point of a pvp server, after all. Players need to make their own decisions re. what is and isn't reasonable behaviour and if you close read Blizzard's description of PVP server that's pretty much their stance too. Blizzard can't intervene constantly to stop players ganking someone fifty levels below them: that would wreck the emergent gameplay that's at the heart of world pvp. But that doesn't mean the players suddenly lose all responsibility for their own behaviour. Imo, if you're willfully turning some lowby's playtime into a repeated corpse-run, you're a bit of a douche whether Blizzard can stop you or not.

"Imo, if you're willfully turning some lowby's playtime into a repeated corpse-run, you're a bit of a douche whether Blizzard can stop you or not."Yeah, this is something I never understood - what's the point of doing that? You might as well be killing level 5 boars. I guess people like that just like trolling or something, I dunno, always seemed really strange why people would even consider doing that.
