That rep change is like a band aid with bactine on a severed limb to me. To each their own i guess, just more of the so called "content" i wont be doing.
Why are you acting like it's a surprise that they're adding a new world-boss in 5.2? The World bosses act as the new "Vault of Archavon" type tier bosses. The next patch introduces a new raid, so it's only logical they add in the next tier of "Archavon" style boss.
"that can literally be a 1-shot and that is something that we don’t want to see happening in PvP, it’s just not acceptable."
Oh the irony with ganking. I thought 1 shotting in PVP was perfectly fine. It's all part of PVP right? If you don't like being one shot by a warrior don't PVP.
WHEN I POST IN CAPS CURSE SPEAK FOR ALL PALADINS AND REFRAIN FROM PUNCTUATION EXCEPT AT THE END OF MY SENTENCE WHERE I USE EXTRA YOU CAN'T ARGUE WITH MY LOGIC!!!!!!!
Ganking isn't pvp

And if you don't have any friends willing to help you out, what are you staying on that server for anyway?
Yes, this sounds harsh. But so is the reality of PVP servers. It's not fluffy unicorns and rainbows, it's war. And there are no rules in war.

In WoW it is.PvP Realm Policies
Actions that would typically be considered "dishonorable" are considered legitimate PvP tactics and will not be addressed by our Game Master (GM) staff. Actions that fall into this category include, but are not limited to:
Tricking players into getting flagged for PvP (i.e. jumping in the middle of another player's area effect spell).
Killing players well below your level.
I'll start this post out with my appeal to authority I've been playing WOW since the second day servers went live in 2003. The same cyclical arguments keep coming back and back and back PVP servers have too much ganking well I think that people need to remember that there is a large number of people out there who make it to level cap and then realize that they're not very good at the game. They don't do well in battlegrounds and they don't do well in looking for group usually is the guys with the four hour kick timer then what they do is they head to low level zones and use the fact that they have six figures for health against your 6000 health as the ultimate leverage to prove to themselves that they are good at the game. What I always suggest to people that are new to the game is to find some way to either record their names or get an add-on that will put them kill on site so when you do happen upon them with your max level toon you can get a little sweet revenge on them because you know they're going to be terrible at PVP and you can just camp them over and over.
The trick of selling a PvP-MMO is creating the illusion among gankers that they are respectable fighters while protecting them from respectable fights, as their less skilled half would be massacred and quit instead of “HTFU” as they claim.
Nice clever use of mechanics on that boss! Too bad it'll be quickly hot-fixed if it hasn't already by now.
