I had my first PvP experience last night, even though it was not by choice. While it was short, I will always remember it as a funny and enjoyable moment. I was about to finish this quest seriesand I was standing at Hendel ready to go toe to toe with him. I was chatting with Ruskin about this fight because he had attempted it before and he let me know that the guards close by will help Hendel. As I was about to get brave and attack Hendel (even with his 2 guards standing close by), a level 39 Tauren hunter came up and attacked the level 35 and 36 guards that stand next to Hendel. He wiped them out with no problems. I thought "wow, this is my golden opportunity to take Hendel one on one and see what happens." I accept his quest and attack him. The fight goes perfectly for me, I critted for 250+ two times in the first 5 seconds and I was winning big against a 35 ( I am still 33). Hendel was below half health and I had only lost about an 1/8 of my health. Then all of a sudden, I start taking a lot of damage. It took me a second to realize that the hunter was shooting me in the back with arrows and having his pet bite my hairy dwarf butt. Since I was slow to react to what was happening (partly out of disbelief and partly because I was dead tired), I was getting close to dying...BUT so was Hendel. Well, when Hendel gets close to death, he stops fighting and Lady Proudmore appears with another mage NPC. They are both uber NPCs (level 500 elite rated using the Cosmos interface). I am running into the swamp water off of the dock about this time and the hunter's last arrow hits me in the back and I die. (Next time I will use Vanish and get away, I am still learning to use my rogue special moves effectively.) Well, the 39 Tauren was standing there thinking he was big time when Lady Proudmore and her mage friend aggroed him. All I have to say is HA HA. He dropped like a rock. So, in the end, the hunter got his laugh and I had mine.
Even for that short amount of time my blood was pumping with excitement from being involved in a fight with another player. I can't wait for the PvP battlegrounds.
