Yes, don't believe there's this massive trolling, and not surprised people are dying early, I would too if I were to try hardcore but I already know it's not my thing.
The road across the Wetlands being one long, golden line of death and carnage is beautiful.
you missed the disconnects on deadliest mobs
I've gotta say, the heat map for the Wetlands Death Run is blazing hot and you've got to be a special kind of stupid to attempt the Wetlands Death Run on a HC server. It has that name for a reason. It's not the Wetlands Happy Times Fun Run. Not the Wetlands Tickles and Giggles Run. It's the Wetlands DEATH RUN. Getting through it solo under 5 deaths was an accomplishment. More often than not for at least 3/4th of the run you were corpse-hopping.
pshhh i don't see my death to the School of Fish on there!
What are the mechanisms by which low-level players can "troll" by dying? I mean aside from the obvious like getting killed by mobs or falling. I was starting in Camp Narache and a level 1 toon called "Mooicide" keeled over and died right in front of the introductory questgiver. I enjoyed the humor but I was genuinely perplexed!
let me tell yall bout my super pro level 5 death in valley of trials when i went afk on the firepit :(
Good way to avoid the temptation of the Wetlands Death Run: if you want to level in Kalimdor, roll Horde!
"Heatmap at the end of the gif:"Waiting... waiting... nothing happens. "Open Original File" -> "1120310.jpg"Trolling at its best :)
People really tried the level 1 wetlands run on hardcore? Ya'll crazy.
I would say that the majority of people playing HC at the moment have not actually played any HC version before. They have not pored over guides and spent every waking moment attempting to min/max a speedrun route or watched hundreds of hours of youtube clips.They're just ordinary players trying something out and getting surprised by things they didn't expect.They'll either learn and get better and have fun progressing, or realise that HC is not the game mode for their particular playstyle and move on.I hope we have more and more new players sticking around and realising what some of us have known for a few years now.
