Running away from bandits out of wilds


#1

So the other day I was in the wilds and there was a edit known bandit there who had not attacked me yet.

I noticed him behind me and ran towards the entrance to escape… He killed himself and went to the graveyard thereby blocking me from exiting the wilds…

I thought that kinda sucked :frowning:

Is that an intended strategy?

Thanks,

Gotta give it to him, the fella’s crafty


#3

:scream:

GHOST BANDITS!

:sob:

Although that sounds horrible, I gotta admit I’m impressed. Total premise for a scary story!


#4

If he had a bandit status (bounty on his head) when he died he should of resurrected at the at the jail not the graveyard, and also should of gotten attacked by the guards.


#5

Someone who is more creative than me should recreate this and make a horror movie trailer of trying to leave the wilds. Lol.


#6

I’m guessing he was probably orange, not red. If you are a bandit and you die, you spawn at the jail.


#7

Yeah i knew he was a known wilds PvP from laughing coffin (was not marked as a bandit) coming from a distance and would try to engage me (i was on my mage, he is a PvP specced ranger; I think running was a wise choice).

The thing is… until he attacks me… (which of course if I know he wants to attack me) and I don’t want to attack back… he wouldn’t be a bandit. Basically it was a crappy experience.


#8

When you say a bandit coming from the distance, are you saying his name was red?


#9

I assume anyone approaching me in the Wilds is going to attack me. I call any potential/future attacker a bandit regardless of actual name color. Maybe the name color upon initial approach was white, but as an aggressor, still a “bandit.” I wonder if we’ll need more terms to clarify the “levels” or stages of bandit, or just start making the habit of saying name-color-bandit :thinking:


#10

no it was a known bandit from laughing coffin
obviously had the intention of attacking… and yeah chased me through the desert. i didnt become a bandit because I didnt attack. He did. I think my point was that he teleported to the graveyard to intercept me as i was close to running out the desert.


#11

So what you are suggesting is that either the to graveyard option should not work in the wilds or that when you do you get teleported somewhere away from the wilds?

I think the second is a good idea nevertheless.


#12

If you graveyard, that means you drop all of your stuff, I guess there is a trade off. That tactic I guess only works if you have no items to lose. And you have to hope you go to the right graveyard.


#13

if hiding inside walls and logging out mid fight is allowed this isnt much different

and thats to say i dont like either of those things being allowed and sanctioned by the devs


#14

I think the confusion was that you called them a bandit, which you meant by intent but johann took literally.


#15

Hiding in the walls is not allowed. The devs clarified that as an exploit.


#16

I’m quite ok with teleportation death attack. Means he was not a bandit, new the layout, and was confident enough to not only get away from the guards, but also to kill you before you got there, and manage to survive a second round of you trying to hunt them down relatively close to graveyard.

I’m less ok with the 2 man tactic of the bandit taking your stuff just tacticly dying and have an companion escort the gear out of the wilds, no timer.


#17

i wasn’t hunting him down… he was hunting me down… as i didn’t attack him and instead fled… he decided that as he hadnt managed to hit me and flag himself he could go to graveyard and stop me.


#18

I would call that legit. You can kill him after that is what I ment, as you would spawn at the graveyard, giving you two chances to kill him.


#19

my point was that he blocked me from exiting the wilds by killing himself and returning to graveyard. I did not want to engage him regardless. My question was… Is it an intended use of mechanics for a person with pvp intentions to go to the graveyard to block someone from exiting.


#20

It’s PvP intent, he has not actually started the PvP yet. Knowing at what graveyard you or your opponent spawn at is a important part of PvP. It’s not a clear win at that.

I’d say it’s a valid move
