I wish they would bring that back

I'm glad they haven't. Too many people griefing their own damn faction. I know of a group who didn't raid, if memory serves, for something like 2 weeks, and were told to go pug their own if they wanted to. Because they decided it'd be fun to go grief low levels in the true starting areas. Of their own faction.

My friend and I pretty much stuck to the major cities (Shat, Org, SMC I think were the ones we were in the most.) It was fun to try and dodge the cleansing shamans, but annoying when players would run around cleansing me (even after I asked them nicely not to.) If someone REALLY didn't want to be a zombie, all they had to do was say something to us and we'd leave them alone*.

*This did not, however, prevent us from converting city guards... which would sometimes go after those players.

I usually don't respond at all and go about my business. If they are persistent then I reply with a simple "No" and if that doesn't stop them, I /ignore.

I don't get too many beggars. But when I do, I tell them only if they let me kill them first. I then take them somewhere nasty in my chopper, get naked, and pull my best thelma and louise.

Of course, the way I actually deal with beggars is by not responding at all.

I don't know about the X-52, but with a Vial of the Sands your passenger is giving a parachute. It lasts a really really long time so I'm not sure you could kill someone that way. My wife will be wearing the parachute for more than a minute after she hits the ground sometimes.

Of course the beggar might not know they'll get a parachute.

Oh believe me... it works... it works very well :D


Oooh, that is devious.
