my dh and I got reported in AV one day, defending our towers at home base. Both of us were there with 3 other people and someone starting complaining that people were afk at base, next thing I know we all have the debuff. I was PO'd! We were the reason the ally hadn't gotten our towers yet, we were pickin them off one by one as they came in to try and sneak take them.

So, hubby and I decided not to defend anymore. THEN the towers got taken and people starting yelling about no defense, so we said in /bg that if some jerks had not reported the defense as AFk the towers would have been fine.... We lost that game and I was actually happy about it, served them right.

I only report people who afk in caves, if you click on the battleground icon near your mini map, you can sort by faction, then sort by dmg and if its 0 0 0 across the board I see where they are on map and if in cave, I report. If at bases or towers I give the benefit of the doubt!

I'm just still happy that AV games don't last for *days* anymore! And at least now you *can* do something about the afkers. The system isn't perfect, but at least it's something. If in doubt about someone not in the cave, you can always send a whisper first to see, too

I lost track of this thread. I'll have to subscribe.

Here's a list of my toons:

Merrywind Nelf lvl 51 druid, Rexxar (PVE)
Franetty gnome lvl 19 (twink) rogue, Rexxar
Bellann dwarf lvl 16 Priest, Rexxar
Saida draenei lvl 11 Hunter, Rexxar

I have some hordies too on PVP servers,but they haven't reached 10 yet. They're on dunemaul and bloodscalp, if anyone plays there.

That's what happened with the one guy. He was in the Alliance base near our bunker, but I couldn't tell if he was in it or not. He looked close to it, so I figured he was there defending. I was checking to see if I should go back there and help or if I should continue on offense. So then when the Horde rogues came in and ninja'ed the towers, people were telling him to go back and help, but he never responded. He got reported AFK, rode down to where fighting was, then went back to the Keep where Vandar was and went AFK again. The other bunker was taken.

Finally he came out and fought and ended with no debuff.

But the guys in the cave who never left, the one guy admitting he'd been doing it all day and wasn't going to fight, never got reported AFK, because I was the only curmudgeon who cared. I will go and defend and hide out in a tower for almost the entire fight, but usually I move around inside the tower while I consecrate, or I make reports on the defense front in chat, so I figure people will know I'm not AFK. But that's why I'm opposed to auto-reporting. Usually when I run back to defend the Frostwolf towers and help the other person there, it's a tauren warrior running into a wall behind a tent, or someone hiding down in the cave with the NPC who accepts Stormpike Blood.

Oh and I just right click on the map to report, I never bother to look for their portrait in the raid.
Cool, I cannot seem to do this, or at least I've never figured out a way for it to work, but I'll try again.

DH said one time he was in AB and a guy was AFK and got the debuff. So he came back and was indignant that he had been reported AFK because he had to poop, and when you gotta go, you gotta go. Hubby was all, "That's what AFK is, it's not a moral condemnation, get back in and fight and you'll be fine."

I got put in a turtle game the other day that had been going for 1/2 hour when I got there and horde had no bonus honor. I so wished I could fish in AV still

They leave you tough choices, ride out what could be another 30 minutes of useless time, take the debuff or always remember to double queue.

eh. Fishing sounds like the best option.

It's funny, because Horde almost always gets some bonus honor. I have done AV on Alliance and ended with 0 bonus honor. The other day I did one where I got no bonus honor and the Horde had over 600. Then I have done games with Horde where we have lost, and ended up with more bonus honor than Alliance. That was funny.

If I can't stand it, I just take the debuff and go and do a daily or hunt for herbs while it wears off, or do a BG with the other toon. I usually only AFK out of the same old premades on WSG or EOTS, though. Usually EOTS is fast and I at least get a token, but sometimes I just say screw it and leave. The double queuing thing never works for me, because usually the battle I wanted to AFK out of if it was a premade is the last one to pop, so I get stuck there anyway. But yeah, it would work for AV, I'm guessing, since that one usually comes up quickly.

One day I had to leave and I thought we were going to win, but it had gone on for so long and I was already late. So I had my daughter play my character. So that was my form of AFKing, but I told her to ride up and heal people who needed healing, and I showed her where my various damage spells were. We won about 5 minutes after I left.

I'm just starting to get into PvP again, hoping I can maybe pick up enough honor to get a piece or 2 of gear before I get bored out of my mind. I was stuck in an hour long WSG last night. I think I'll stick to AV. I'm still not real sure of the best strategies for it, but I just kinda follow the crowd and whack on any Horde I come across and it seems to work out, we've won most of the games I've been in.

Oh, and if anyone's updating the master list, my main, Jordynna (68 rogue) has moved to Bronzebeard. Found a fabulous guild there, thanks to a mama here...I think it was CherryBomb. So now I'm getting ready to start my Kara attunement quests, wheee!

Well I haven't been on MDC in something like a month but I am playing Wow, my druid is a 46 now. I don't understand a lot of the current conversation but figure I will when I get further into the game.

To my understanding, you won't need attunement for Kara anymore because only one person needs to have the key, or you can hop in when someone else opens the door. However, like many keys, it will probably still be nice to have your own, and *someone* still needs to have one, correct me if I'm wrong!

Rossé, Chablisse, Merlotte

Shiraz or Syrah

I think I like Bordeaux, because it has that deep red on top.

Hi All,

I have a question as I am still working up my first toon (now up to level 27).

I just bought my first item in an Auction House. The money was deducted from my account, but the item did not appear in my bag. Was I supposed to do something? Do I need to buy it again? It cost a bundle....

Sure!

Why is it always easier finding names for someone else? I had my starter owl named Owl until I was 20, until my 4yo dd said I should call it BlueBeak because it had a blue beak. :-D

I think the only easy pet names I had were when I named my Ghost Saber Schrödinger, and when I had an Auction House toon that was a Dwarf Hunter named Redgreen. I needed the geekiest looking <12 pet I could find to name Harold (I couldn't come up with anything really good, so I chose the Strigid Hunter, because I thought the eyes kindasorta looked like glasses), and I payed 10 lowbies to join my guild <<a href="http://www.redgreen.com/" target="_blank">QuandoOmniFlunkusMortati> (I had to sacrifice an 'i' in Moritati because of the character limit).

If you are on Norgannon and want to join a totally worthless guild to get people to stop inviting you to their guild, PM me and we can arrange a time. :-)

BTW, I figured out how to right click on the map dot and report someone AFK, so thanks for that info, Ard.

I have a Kara key on my Horde 70, and an epic flying mount on my Alliance 70. So I guess I won't bother getting the kara key on my Alliance, and earning money for the next level of flying skill is so pricey, that I'm thinking I won't do it. Will prices come down? They did with BC, so I figure they have to with WLK.

That is the million dollar question, will epic flying training come down? We have been wondering that here too, I don't have epic flying on either of my 70's. Has Bliz even shared official info on the use and usefulness of flying in Northrend? I don't think I've seen anything official on that.

My dd told me that she saw a Blue post that season 1 Arena gear would be removed from the game once season 4 starts.

will be removed for purchase, if you have the stuff it wont poof, but i guess they only want three seasons of arena gear out at a time. although, did you see all the faction pvp rewards they put in, that will be very nice for people who just ding 70, im excited to level some more alts to 70 now.

http://www.mmo-champion.com/index.php?topic=5383.0 scroll down to the arena .5 gear message. /cheer

Yes I understand that it's removed for purchase

I jsut think season 2 is ugly and don't want to wear it. Also I'm disappointed because I wanted to get season 1 for my priest (yes because I think it's pretty lol), but I know there is no way I will hit 70 on her and grind the gear before season 4 arrives. She has been hovering at level 36 for quite awhile lol.

Eh I suppose I could get dh to give me a week of dungeon power leveling and get her to 70.

I report people AFK all the time. Nothing bugs me more then having someone mooch marks and honor off of your hard work.

When you report them it will send them a message: "Shalena has reported you AFK, if this isn't true type /AFK Cancel or enter combat. Thanks!"
I'll usually call them out in /bg too. I was accidently reported once before WSG started, so that's how I know what the message says.

OMG do not fall for that /afk cancel. You can not cancel the afk report debuff that way. And that message you got before the BG started, that was a player being a jerk. They use these macros in /say so they can trick people not paying attention and when you /afk cancel all it does is remove you from the game. Don't do it!

People suck. I swear.

oh whoops sorry .. <- that guy confused me.

im pretty sure if you type /afk cancel you will be kicked from the game. ive never been reported afk that i noticed, lol, so i wouldnt know, "that reminds me of people being like, hey target me and type /d for donation!"

arduinna, did you see that some dutch guy got to level 70 in 1day and 17 hours played, INSANE i tell you!

omg after i posted that i went to look for the actual post and found out that the guy who has claimed to do that is athene. the "youre a pro or youre a noob, thats life" guy, so i dont know if i believe it.

i think he and his girlfriend make a cute couple though.

ok way OT, ill shut up now.

yes /afk in any battleground will kick you out of it, no matter what you put after it. Don't do it unless you want to leave.

I saw a tauren post with screenshots (that showed the /played time) a few months ago that they leveled a pally alt to 60 in some insane amount of /played I can't remember how long anymore but it was under 2 days. They did it over one weekend just dungeons all day long.

We started doing that with my priest that was already level 22ish, and got her to level 36 fairly quickly but it's mind numbingly boring. We have done Cathedral I do not know how many times. On the plus side, I've gotten plenty of enchanting mats, especially shards lol. And I already have money for my mount, that she earned herself. And you never need to buy gear

I called him and asked if we could resume because I really want season 1 for her.
