Cyanrose of the World of Warcraft Livejournal community recently regaled us with a tale of one of his most excellent World PvP exploits. Running around Hillsbrad on his level 26 Warlock, he heard a familiar sound that strikes fear into the hearts of almost everyone who's every leveled on a PvP server: the sound of Stealth.
Turning around, he came face to face with a rogue -- one high leveled enough to sport a skull on his level indicator. Somehow, he says, he managed to get off a lucky Fear, and after a frantic bit of running and free application of Curse of Agony and Corruption -- or thrown copies of Illidan and Akama's swimsuit issues, if you believe him -- he got the rogue down. Apparently, this rogue then proceeded to call in a bunch of his guildmates to tear apart Tarren Mill in search of him, but by then Cyanrose was swimming down south of Southshore, laughing over his unlikely victory.
This story got me thinking of some of my own unexpected, funny, and epic PvP battles.
