Ok so last couple days I've been bored and entered the lobster for some pvp...this is my first lvl 20 toon so he's not all decked out with insane gear and uber stats. So I see this other level 20 in there, the only other level 20...he's not attacking me, just repeat-killing anyone under lvl 10. Although I find it amusing (and sometimes fun to watch) attacking people who have no chance gets boring after the first 3 to 5 kills.
My toon is just a dungeon crawler, I never really even considered pvp till recently...i mean my guy has 300hp buffed. Dunno how good that is as a lvl 20 PM wizard, but I tend to not die in dungeons and half-soloed harry so I don't complain...
So I go to leave the brawl area after watching for a bit and when i hit the ladder he attacks me while my back is turned, before i can hop off and turn to attack back...i'm dead. While I recover he runs and jumps back on the ledge and waits. When I hop back down and get back in my corner a lvl 14 attacks me, right when i cast the spell that kills him that guy from before hops off the ledge and kills me...now i REALLY don't take any of it personal, i could care less how many times you kill me or call me a noob, hell i'll even wear a shirt that says DDO-NOOB RIGHT HERE! But later when I killed him during a 1 on 1, he got upset and said he's putting a hit out on me and starts bringing his guildies and friends into it...naturally not much I can do so i just shrug and leave the arena.
Next day, while in the brawler area I made a couple friends by killing them...granted it was somewhat a cheap way (irresistable dance followed by a barrage of whatever i could cast before it wore off) but it worked and they laughed and now they don't attack me. So a ranger attacks me and kills me while fighting a cleric (and if you haven't fought a cleric while on a necromancer, that's a pain...). I come back and fight the cleric but the ranger kills me again while I'm fighting the cleric...
Take 3 : I hop down and move to my corner and just toast the lvl 20 ranger in 2 shots. I get a tell saying "your dead" and next thing I know he's got his friends in there attacking me. At this point I'm getting the impression that PvP brawls are less about skill and more about who you know. Now don't get me wrong, I actually ENJOYED playing like this...seriously, taking on 2 or 3 at a time made me feel pretty damn leet.
Now it was fun till the guy got upset that I was killing him and his friends as much as they were killing me...that's when the /tell's started..."you're a noob" and accusing me of ledge hopping while he's surrounded by his friends xD. My response, I popped in a dvd irl and watched a movie while leaving my character on the ledge...I come back 2 hours later and they are STILL sitting there whispering me saying i'm afraid to come down.
At this point i really thought they'd have given up within 30mins...so I had this O.o look on my face when I got back.
As I said earlier, THIS was truly fun and amusing. Anyone else have a similar story? =D
