I leveled my rogue to 60 when the game began (hit 60 the end of Jan 2005 or so) and I think I rarely ever ran into someone who could even pose a threat much less kill me. But at this time, there was crap like: Booty Bay camping, Gadgetzan roof top camping, etc. Other than that, things were pretty easy. But now, you've got people that just get bored and literally, you can waste an hour just trying to get away (or simply log out).Originally posted by: Skacer
Anubis did you level to 60 on a PVP server when that server was new, during the starting waves? I leveled up on Sargeras, which was a major PVP server at the time. And PVP was insane. This was pre-battlegrounds, you had nowhere to hide. I wasn't worried about level 70s ganking me (because it didn't exist back then) but even level 40s had a huge advantage at the time. I remember the first group of people to get to 40 actually came back to TM to cause havoc. I was in the second wave of people to hit 60 on the server, 2nd horde side druid. Pre-Battlegrounds WoW, PVP was a huge part of leveling up.
I've also leveled characters when the server was older and there most certainly were people ganking unlike when I leveled my rogue. I literally just left my rogue logged out nearby and would kill anyone that messed with me. I don't care if the guy was my level, I'd still kill ya if you jumped me while I was fighting a mob (especially on my warrior, I hated leveling that guy, so if you made it worse, I made your day hell).
