oh **** i'm shaking here lol.... just killed a 44 warrior... twice. (i just dang 40 - combat swords/ar, he's got the standard 2H fury leveling build with the second best weapon for that spec) me*
first time he was mining, 90% health and 50+ rage. i followed him from 85 rage and had to blow sprint to catch up.
garrote > ss > rupture > ss > snd. lots of fierys and poison procs. his screen had to be going crazy with a hundred little double digit numbers... he got me down to about 25% but he died disarmed. he waits .a.long.time. to release as i take the node and skillup mining.
ten minutes later i was mounted and happened upon him as he was fleeing from a 41 mob. i just kept still while waiting to see what he'd do... after 2 years of playing exclusively on pvp servers, it's my modus operandi.
the wolf gave up on him. he mounted up and started towards me, circling around two 42 cats that were pathing to a point.
the chess match began.
i circle around the other side of the cats, close enough to aggro but keeping them between us. of course, he cuts the corner and dismounts, stands still a moment to watch the carnage as these two higher-level mobs will surely tear me to shreds; i keep my camera centered on him while strafing left and right to judge the distance... right around charge range i snap a hard left and make a beeline right at him... and vanish.
a classic sicilian dragon: offensive-defense opening.
nearly flawless execution: only one of the cats aggro'd on him when i vanished though. now he's in combat, can't charge, and i'm closing the gap :)
the cat gets there first, so he targets it, i open with a cheapshot -> rupture and it takes him awhile to even target me.
i end the fight at 75% health this time, and he dies disarmed. no iron node to ninja this time though. *disclaimer: i have 70, 42, 35, 21, 16 warriors ;)
