View Full Version : Bug or cheating?

<p>i was playing my lvl 16 warden alt grouped with a lvl 15 brigand and we killed a lvl 20 berserker in antonica...so no big deal.</p><p>then the zerker kept coming back and attacking us so we killed him yet again.  then he came back a 3rd or 4th time, he was solo all the time , he did not have a heroic tag on his name,  so we attacked him to send a message to leave us alone already... all of sudden midfight after he had retaliated attack as well (i.e. he was incombat) his tag became heroic 1 arrow up, and along came 2 lvl 21 rangers who jumped in and killed us.</p><p>now i was under the impression that you could not join or leave a group if they are engaged in a pvp fight? or am i mistaken?</p>

He did the old trick where he waits for you to attack then the others join his group and can kill you. Lame as hell but hard to find people who know how to play with out some lame tactic nowadays.

invite high level out of zone and bring the fight to the zoneline. simple to avoid, fight away from the zonelines.

<p>Yeah , i'm not sure because I don't do it but I think they open the invite before the fight starts then he accepts it right before he turns on attack ... or something like that.</p><p>btw , my idea in my post "respawn rushing" would have prevented this .. after his 3rd death his gear would have been broken <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>You accept the invite after the wiz (Or whatever) has started his first cast, but it has not landed yet. Then the nuke will land after you have been invited and oh, there you go.</p><p>Another way used to be to raid invite instead. Doesnt seem to work anymore.</p><p>PEople like to exploit these grouping rules quite a bit.</p>

<p>sounds like a bug to me</p>

<p>In this situation what does it matter anyways? The level range is 8 in Antonica and the Rangers did not need to join the group to attack and kill you.</p><p>Did something funky happen? Yes but they would've killed you either way</p>
