Late Musings: The Troll


I was trolled in the strangest way on Friday. I was at the Shrine and someone asked in /say how to slot a gem, and where to look for them on the AH. I smelled a nube in need of help. I’m not the best player in the world, but I do know how to kit out a toon, so I sent him a whisper. I explained what he needed to do, and he was perplexed by how many different kinds of gems there were for sale. I told him about Ask Mr. Robot, and eventually walked him though the process using the web site and then the AH. Oh, he wants to do PvP? That’s something different, so we did the whole thing again. We talked about enchants and where to get materials. Then he said he wanted to roll a warrior but was afraid to try the Protection spec because he didn’t have any BOA gear, and he didn’t know how it really worked. I explained how it worked, and that he wouldn’t be expected to have that kind of gear. Then he listed the BOA gear that he DID have. He basically had every caster and agility piece you get possibly get, including the stuff you buy for Justice Points and what you get from your guild. “How is it that you have so much veteran gear, but you didn’t know how to slot a gem?” Then he signed off. I spent like 70 minutes with this guy as he tried to see how long he could hold my attention.

So I was duped, but I won’t feel bad about being nice.

Maybe he was lonely.

I’ll see you soon,
