Here's WoW Classic, where a 37 lock killed a 60 rogue by kiting. Ignore the idiotic comments on the video, as they seem to be unable to read the upload date.
At that time in the game, Sprint was on a 5 minute cooldown, lower levels did not have a significant chance to miss against higher levels, and Fear did not have diminishing returns, did not break on damage, and had full duration against players.
The dots prevent the rogue from stealthing/vanishing/mounting, the sprint was feared away from the lock.
