On November 12, a World of Warcraft Classic update introduced the Honor System, and players have been on the hunt for honorable kills ever since. While some fans are currently enjoying the game's new incentives for PvP, the imbalance that exists between the two factions on most servers has turned the WoW Classic Honor System into a point of frustration for many players. Indeed, rampant ganking and camping is making it difficult for some players to find any enjoyment in the game at this time, but one fan is looking to provide these players with a clever solution.
Specifically, Reddit user LetMeSpoilThisForU has outlined a method that Horde players can use to fight back against camping during this WoW Classic phase. This method can be employed in Everlook, Gadgetzan, and Marshall's Refuge, and it revolves around a quest called Are We There, Yeti, which is obtained in Winterspring.
This WoW Classic quest provides players with a mechanical yeti that is to be used on NPCs in the three aforementioned locations, and it can be activated 10 times before a player is forced to reset the quest and obtain another one. This mechanical yeti spawns at Level 1, and it is both hostile to the enemy faction and is a civilian. This means that the yeti will grant anyone that accidentally kills it with a dishonorable kill, and such a threat could just be enough to convince some campers to reconsider their PvP strategy.
For the uninitiated, players that are attempting to grind the World of Warcraft Classic Honor System are certainly keen on avoiding dishonorable kills, as they adversely impact their honor rank. While some will find LetMeSpoilThisForU's tactics questionable, others may believe that desperate times call for desperate measures, and it would not be remiss to classify the current state of WoW Classic World PvP as such.
Fortunately, World of Warcraft Classic Battlegrounds are set to go live next Tuesday, December 10, and these instanced PvP zones should help alleviate the ganking and camping that is currently preventing some players from making progress in the MMORPG. Until then, though, employing the assistance of a mechanical yeti may be some players best point of recourse against lopsided PvP, assuming that they are able to survive long enough to spawn it.
