Gank me, please!

As the topic implies, I have a 29 Defender on Andromeda (named "Luthica") volunteering to get ganked.

I know what you're thinking -- Defender's are OP. But I'm not like them -- I'm PvE specced with about 3000 HP (counting a pet buff!). I might be crunchy on the outside, but I have a gooey candy core.

And that's not all! I kind of suck at PvP too! I've been steady at rank 118 for about a week now!

And it's baseball season, so if you catch me after 7 p.m. EST chances are I'll be listening to the game and drinking, so you you can expect slow reflexes.

I can hit pretty hard for two shots, but after that I've got nothing, so I'm definitely killable.

Which is why I get confused why when I run into solo 29 FKs in Caergate, they usually turn and run away. I'm not that good! I still have my level 14 "Prophet" earrings for crying out Pete's sake!. I mean, yeah, I just got my sword up to +7 yesterday, but aside from that my gear is a mess. Nothing else above +5, only three "authorized" pieces, and it's a mix of stuff for two completely different builds.

And the silly thing is that several times yesterday I saw players who I've fought before, and I know can beat me riding my way, but when I turned to intercept them, they rode away!

The past few days I've seriously seen more lowbies coming after me solo, and you know what? My tiny health pool (for a Defender) means that if they can get the first hit they have a good chance of killing me.

I even grafted my suit and sword to look like the second tier ones, just to give a visual cue that I'm not so tough, but still most FKs run if they think it might be a 1-1 fight. I'm really no one to run from! Heck, running a PvE build without defensive passives, I'm practically a free kill.

So if you see Luthica out alone in Caergate, just know that I'm not just out farming... well farming whatever it is people farm in Caergate -- I'm there to fight. And in most cases, fight badly. So turn your bike around and give it a try Smile

No... please... If they think that then they'll never turn around and fight Sad

I'm seriously not worth running from. I mean, I have one or two moments of awesome, but those are mostly just luck.

Though honestly, I ran away myself a few times yesterday, but that was when I could clearly see I was outnumbered. That's a whole different thing that turning to run when I see any single enemy headed my way.

Honestly, I know exactly what you mean. I think people just don't want to bother with fighting defenders one on one.

It's for real. Kinda.

I just don't see the point in running from 1-1 fights. It's especially bad when people who I know can easily best me turn and run.

You have like 1300 more health than me though Razz Another defender will be a long fight, but against most classes someone dies pretty quickly, whether it's them or me.

Yipee!

...or is that not a good thing Confused

Mostly I just think it's funny that people seem to shy away from the 1-1 fights, even with mediocre players.
