I keep hearing that Silvermoon has a bad rep, hence 'Sillymoon' and 'Cybermoon'. Allegedly it's the Horde version of
So I woke up at silly o'clock this morning (natch, it being a Saturday and all, when I don't have to get up...) and thought I'd go take Sassi levelling. I was walking towards the City exit, down the Walk of Elders and I realised that having got to grips with Spotify last night (kinda) I could start sorting a playlist out. I alt-tabbed out for a second, long enough to drag and drop a few songs (and I love Spotify by the way, and the fact that I can work it means that I'm not totally over the hill ancient!) and tabbed back in to find... well, I'll let the screenshot speak for itself.
Ok, I admit, not the fastest set of responses I've ever had, but I was a bit on the back foot. I would assume that even the die hard ERPers at least want people to introduce themselves before they start trying to disrobe you. And Sassi wasn't even in her little dress! She was wearing the heirloom robe and shoulders. And I kinda think that actually I shouldn't have blurred the names out.
So ladies and jellyspoons - what would you have done? I tend to go for the 'kill it with sarcasm' approach (in RL as well as WoW - not that I've encountered this kind of thing in RL), which, in this case did work, they backed off, but I still feel a bit... ucky. All joking aside now, what the screenshot can't express, of course, is that they kind of... circled around Sass (and the fact that I was staring at my monitor going 'wtf'? Are they really trying to do what I think they're trying to do? WTF??). Even when she backed away, they got her in a sort of pincer movement until she was backed up against a wall, which I didn't emote because well, I was trying to process what was going on and how I/she should react. Should she have run? Yelled out for the Guards? Just walked away? Hearthed? What? But dammit, why should I feel the need to run away from pixels (yes, I know, immersion breaking, but something like that does tend to have that effect on me.) Or am I having a huge over-reaction to a bit of 'harmless' RP? Other people having the right to their own immersion, storylines and character personalities, and all that. Thoughts appreciated, and in the meantime, I'm going to log off and, I dunno, do something that isn't WoW related. And doesn't make me feel like I need to shower with bleach.
