Ok, this is not a rant. (really!) But I am noticing the same behavior seems to crop up every time an event like ToT starts up. So, I decide I am actually bored enough to try my hand at some martie drops for a bit. I did the Oni area where the revenant lions and bake-whatevers spawn. I get a nice haul of gold and a few items I think might be worth enhancing, but the martie drops seem a bit slow. I mention this in alliance chat and one of the gals mentions that I would probably get more drops off of the weaker critters. What you lose in difficulty you make up for in quantity. Makes sense. So off I go to Zento. I head toward the sandy area where those ugly beetles spawn along with the various orcs that spawn along the edges of that area, and the mid-level undead that populate the northern center areas. Right off the bat I head into an Orc spawn, there is a guy standing there with a pile of orc bodies all around him. Ok, I'll move on. Oops, another guy at a spawn point, again surrounded by Orc bodies. Repeat this a couple more times at the rest of the orc spawns and also in the undead area. Well, I can just leave I guess, but hell! These people have been doing this for a while now it looks like and nobody OWNS the spawn points, right? So I head over to one of the orc spawns and see the guy I saw before in this spot standing in the same spot with corpses all around him. A couple of orcs are bit away from him so I quickly kill them. Another spawned and I quickly killed it as well, since the guy standing there hadn't moved. Suddenly after that, he sprang to life. I let him kill the next and went after the one that followed. Not so fast! He ran after it as well killed it with his repond slayer. I managed to beat him to the next one and was finally greeted with "Hey, you know I was here first, right?" Which is camper language for "What the hell are you doing killing MY spawn". I was immediately annoyed and decided to stay for a bit. "I know you heard what I said" Of course I had, I just couldn't see what it had to do with the price of regs in moonglow. I continued getting intermittent kills and a silver dye pigment. I figured after 10 minutes I'd move on, and did. I went to another spawn and again attacked some straggling orcs that were apparently out of aggro range from the guy with the corpse collection standing there. Which means he was either extremely lazy or AFK. Again, I killed a few before this fellow sprang to life. No "Hi! how are ya!" Instead I got "You must be a lonely little boy messing with people around here." So apparently he had been chatting with the other guy. Rather than engage in a pissing contest I agreed I was rather lonely and a trifle cranky and thank you very much for asking. He continued to try and get a rise out of me with usual "Isn't it your bed time?" "Meet me in fel, trammy!" and so on and so forth. It was making him madder by just agreeing with him about how awful I was than arguing with him. Finally as a last resort he told me that what I was doing was considered harassment. That got me laughing pretty good. I told him I would wait there while he explained to a GM how I was harassing him by not acknowledging his sovereignty over this particular orc spawn. After another 5 minutes he left and I killed orcs for a bit in peace. Now my question is this. Should I or anyone else simply wander off because a few individuals think they are entitled to camp the same area all alone for days at a time? I pay the same subscription fees they do after all. When people recalled into the Oni spawn I was working I certainly didn't act like it was mine alone. I took turns, mostly grateful to have time to look more carefully at the loot they were dropping between kills. I couldn't possibly be the only person to run into this sort of situation. What protocol, if any, should we follow?
