I find this extremely irritating, I repeatedly have gotten killed just trying to leave the area after flying into it. A long time ago when I used to play WOW I remember that their was a PvP flag that got set when you went into some areas and it was a simple matter of typing in a command and then waiting 5 min for the flag to be reset.
So in that spirit I typed in "turning off PvP" into Wowhead. What I got back was many links on how to turn experience off! In playing WOW I have come to the understanding that getting experience for killing the opposite faction is different than getting experience for killing mobs and doing quests. I don't want to stop getting experience for doing quests and killing mobs!
So where is the link that tells you how to turn off PVP (for people on PvE servers)?
