A Guide for the Student on the Ways and Means of the Warg and the Stalking of Prey

Grow A Set!

One thing that sends me straight into a boredom induced coma in the Ettens is people running from a fight, it just isn’t fun. I can already hear the guffaws of laughter from those thinking “Ha! A warg criticising people for running away!” I’m not talking about escaping from a  fight though … I’m talking about not even fighting in the first place!

Escaping from a fight implies that you were actually engaged in the fight at some point. You tried to take your opponent down and for whatever reason you were not successful and thus you can look to escape from the fight. That is the warg way. You may not be successful in escaping and your opponent may get the kill. That is also the warg way.

Running from a fight is entirely different. This is when someone runs at the first sign of danger before even getting into a fight. This is behaviour no self-respecting warg should ever engage in. You’re there to take down freeps, not to run if one of them gives you a dirty look.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with avoiding combat with a clearly superior enemy; I wouldn’t expect a lone warg to charge an entire freep raid, for example. Having said that some of the best and most fun fights you will get are when you have the odds stacked against you.

Remember that one of your goals is to get infamy and you are only going to get that from killing freeps. Now there are many ways to kill freeps, but they all involve, at some stage, getting up close and personal with a freep. This is something you should have no fear of … the worst that can happen is that you die. You loose almost nothing from dying, only some rating, which frankly is irrelevant to your performance on the Moors. Death should hold no fear for the warg when it does come, and make no mistake, it will come. At some stage Disappear will not be avaialble; Sprint will have been burned and your pots will be gone. Death then takes you … so grow a set and embrace it!

Be bold! Be brave! Be IN the fight!


One response

  1. I agree whole-heartedly! Too many times I’ve heard a warg say, “let me get disappear off cooldown first, only 5 more minutes”

    But I also use disappear as an offensive skill and sprint for catching horses lol.
