Every good MMO has those annoying but random moments when someone has pulled off an amazing troll that made you stop questing and go, "WTF!?!?!"
In vanilla WoW, I remember standing around in Stormwind derping around trying staring at an instance marker in the canals between Old Town and the market area. That beautiful little swirly vortex was perplexing me and I was trying to think of everything I could to get past those iron bars. WHEN SUDDENLY...a 50 foot giant monster appeared from nowhere only to one hit me and kill me. I was completely taken aback and wondered, "How can this happen in a sanctuary?"
I respawned at the GY which was way the hell out near Eastvale Logging Co. and made the long trek back to SW only to discover the entire city was under siege by this enormous titan thing. Me, being a courageous level 19 Gnome Warlock hurried into the fray only to get one-shotted by what appeared to me to be a volley of Shadow Bolts. Level 60s were running around screaming at the noobs to immediately vacate the area because apparently, if the Titan kills one person, it resets his health (or he gains a bunch back). It took probably 30 minutes for the guy to die and I had a blast being there.
I am really not sure what the hell happened or how this thing came to be, but I was told that a hunter with the skill "feign death" could kite this monster from a high level area two or three zones away. Although the QQ level was high (Blizzard quickly patched it), I still feel that bugs, trolls, and griefing like this provides questers the opportunity to experience something different and it certainly breaks the monotony of standing in SW watching General Chat. Imagine the mayhem one could cause if questlines or world bosses could be manipulated like this today! I feel the games of today are way too static and feel almost dead because things like this are banned, patched or engineered to never happen.
Do you have any experiences like this and do you feel these things should or should not happen?
