A dagger lurking in the shadows

So there I was, in the middle of the forest south of an alliance outpost killing Fey Dragons to left and right. That damn fey powder wouldn't drop. Just as I pocketed the last dust my debuff bar lit up like a christmas tree. This usually only means one thing... a warlock. Before I had gotten my hand out of the bag I had at least 3 dots running and more coming. Before TBC that would have been the end of the grind and the beginning of a long corpse run. Not this time. Activate cloak of shadows and then boom VANISH.

The battle has been reset.

The scared gnome mounted up faster than you can say Gnomeregan and rode away.

When I get jumped and manage to escape or turn the battle I can't let it go. So I followed him in stealth. I could follow the trail of mobs returning to their positions as he rode past. It seemed he would elude me... but then just as I spotted another gnome (rogue) my the castbars lit up... SHADOWBOLT... I had found him.. or rather my mods spotted him for me. After that it was easy to stun him to death. With Will of the Forsaken and the PVP trinket Warlocks are now easy mode...

I just love stalking the prey as a rogue. I've heard that druids are even cooler with their Track Humanoid to make the task easier. Nah that is too easy =)

That's awesome man, last night I was lvling in Shimmering Flats when I was hacked by a 35 Tauren Warrior. When I was heading for the Flight Point in Gadgetzan, low and behold I found him and there was a Night Elf Pally ... thinking the sameway, we chased him down and tagged him ourselves.

What mod's are you using to announce the incoming Horde?

Nice! Now that's justice.

Stories like that are why I've tried over and over to convince my husband to roll PvP with me. He just keeps saying it doesn't sound fun to be ganked while trying to quest. I can't seem to get through to him that we won't always have to be on the receiving end of the ganking. I think I'm going to send him a link to read this.
