A short tale of QQ: was dragging my lowbie shaman alt around Alterac Valley completing the first shot at those repeatable quests for a nice rep boost – you know do the mine once and pick up a crate, do the save the windriders once, cash some armor at least once etc etc (After the first time the rep drops right back to the usual 1-5 points a turn in – so at that point you only really bother if you are conveniently in the area.) There are also a bunch of quests you can pick up at the actual AV entrance above Tarren Mill. Anyway I was trying to do at least one of these yellow quest hand-ins an AV game while contributing to defense/offence – whatever party was closest to my target.
The game where I decided to nip down and tame a frost-wolf and hand it in the the wolf rider guy, well right in the middle of it some snotty bloody blood elf reports me AFK and I have to tramp all the bloody way to the front lines to smack something ‘player’ on the head, wish I coulda smacked his snotty elf face in… instead I just had to pass it right back at him and get (eh minor) satisfaction over the fact that he had to find himself a turtlely alliance body to beat on as well.
But when did it get to the point that people stalk you and afk you for trying the AV quests when you are an under 70? Its not like I was in ‘PRO’ gear and running face first into a mountain … what the fuck will the busybodies do to me if I ever attempt the gnoll cave to get the banner and my AV medallion? (ya know the one that warps you back to Drek – I know they are not as crash hot as they used to be but they are nifty for fast D support and collection cash-ins.)
