A Simple Fix for PVP Griefing

War Mode and World PvP
Orale, getting ganked is good for you.
Keep WM on and take your medicine.

Im sorry, what? I'd like to hear some actual counter arguments please.

There's already a solution that will make you immune to PVP griefers: turn off war mode.

Or do what GW2 does and scale your stats down to the level of the zone. You still get talents and !@#$, but yeah. This should've been done instead of world scaling to begin with.

I think that would be good too, but unfortunately clueless 120s whined so much about being beaten by more skilled 116s that they took the scaling out.


Said "solution" is only reasonable if you can turn war mode on and off at will rather than return to a single capital city. If your stuck in the typical 'horde effing a-hole' (redundancy alert) griefing point it's like 15-20 minutes before you can even get away let alone the extra time to go to the capital city.
Rocket launchers and stabby daggers are part of this game, if you dont like go find another game....

No no, she is saying turn it off and leave it off.

Not turn it off, and turn it on when you want free XP. That's not what WM means.... You people are ridiculous.

Turn it on, and deal with the reprecussions.

Turn it off, and don't.

Do not sit here and try to turn it into a free XP exploit that is not what this is.

Cool, now imagine someone ganks you. You get on your main to confront them. They see you coming and turn War Mode off. You get back on your alt. They turn War Mode back on and gank you again, once again leaving you with the only solution being that you *keep* War Mode off if you don't want to deal with this type of gameplay.

Not to mention the nightmare that would be group WPvP. Raid groups phasing in on each other. Plus all the people who will exploit the shard hopping of rapidly turning War Mode On/Off for trade mat farming, rare hunting.

Make it so you can't go into a zone with Warmode on if you are above the level that the zone scales to. Simple.


You'll be happy to hear there is an even simpler fix, already in the game!

Simply use your hearthstone to go to Orgrimmar, or Stormwind. Press "N", below your PvP talents there is a toggle button. Click that button.

Voila! No more griefing.
