There are some things I just don't have time for… like being challenged to a duel as I hop off the zeppelin outside of The Undercity.
Back when I was leveling Syrana on an RP-PvP server, I remember this druid, who was about the same level, challenged me to a duel when the zeppelin stopped.
I declined and continued on my way.
They so eloquently yelled out that I was a scared wuss.
I didn't even bother responding.
As I headed off to where ever it was my quest(s) was taking me, I received a whisper from that druid. I thought, Gee this ass just can't leave me be. Well, turns out, he wasn't an ass after all. He asked why I wouldn't duel him. I told him that there was no benefit – nothing for me to gain – no honor.
Besides, I had to watch my back enough everywhere I went, I didn't want to be bothered with fake fighting one of my own faction.
I can no longer remember the exact details of the conversation, but there was something he liked about my response. There was a level of respect over desiring honor for a kill. We chatted a bit more and even worked on a couple quests together.
I still rarely ever duel, unless it's a friend or family member… totally for shits ‘n giggles. But I still very much dislike the ninja duel request…. especially when it pops up as I'm riding past someone.
Just an observation….
Arguing on the internet is a lot like dueling. We don't have anything to lose except time and patience. There is no real winner because there is nothing gained… no honor in either scenario.
Also, don't fuck with a pregnant woman. Just a word of warning. I mean, you don't poke a bear unless you want your face ripped off. Trying to push an argument with a preggo is very much like that.
Stay outta my cave.
