Jul 31st 2006 1:05PM I have an L29 Priest twink that is a nice diversion from raiding on my L60.
I'm sorry, Anaea, but you are wrong. As long as you are in the party/raid you do get "honorable kills" in the BGs (perhaps so in world PvP, I don't know.) There might be an aspect of proximity, but I can tell you that my priest definately walks out of a WSG with a bunch of kills (even without a single killing blow.)
One dirty little trick is to put a Level 1 Shadow Word: Pain on anyone and everyone that you see. You'll drain a bit of health, ensure you get credit for the kill, and if you are lucky the opposing priests will waste valuable mana dispelling SW:P.
