So, I was running from Duskwood to Stranglethorn Vale & shooting players an Arcane Intellect buff as I ran. Apparently when you buff a PVP player, you get flagged for PVP. This I did not know. Literally ten seconds after I got flagged I was attacked by a Horde Druid & Warrior who were hanging out in the Alliance zone. I Frost Nova'd them & blinked away to STV & hid under the bridge by the Rebel Camp until my flag wore off. This is why I play on a PVE server, I don't like being ganked while I'm out questing. Why would someone roll a character on a PVE server just to run around with PVP on? Why not just play on a PVP server if that's what you want? I hate world PVP, I mean I HATE it with a passion. Stop playing PVP on a PVE realm.

The trend in my server (PvP) is quite opposite. People run away from PvP-situations. If player from opposite faction attacks you, there is rarely anyone willing to help you, even if it would be 3v1 situation. And the biggest mistake is to ask help in /3 local defence; you'll get shamed pretty fast with "why don't you just let them be, idiots!!!" -type of comments. Start playing PVP on a PVP realm.

Sweet summer child. It's even worse for classes who can AoE. If I'm not mistaken, if they walk in your AoE and take damage then you get flagged too.

A dead dwarf is just as tasty on a PvE server as it is on a PvP server. Live and learn - next time don't get yourself flagged.

That's terrible. Not the case on Deviate Delight. As soon as you call out Horde locations, tons of willing Allies are on the way, especially if it's a zone like Duskwood or Redridge.

There are ways you can avoid this, like not getting flagged.
Now that you know that buffing causes that you can continue your PVE adventure, but try to be reasonable.
You can't expect people to not do world PVP just because you don't like it.
As long as you have the tools to avoid it, it is your duty to use them, not other players' duty to not kill you because "you don't like being killed".
