Hey people, it seems like we rarely share hunting stories here anymore. So, here's some random babble about my most recent forest pvp experience, reader discretion is advised:
So, I went back to the forest after some time. I got my *** handed to me a few times but also got a lot of nice gank kills. After invading with my main forest hunter setup
for a while i decided to do some invasions with leather set, fog ring and black bow of pharis. Basically i just ran around the forest and shot arrows at gankers from a distance and used different shortcuts and tricks to escape them. Usually i manage to separate the host from the phantom like that and then it's often easy to finish the host with a surprise dark silver tracer backstab and wake-up pyros. Naturally, gankers don't like it when i first waste their time and then kill them. I got two messages. Surprisingly, the first one was an honest gg message from a japanese player and apparently he was amazed by my escaping skills, lol!
The second message was from a random guy and it was a typical hatemail calling me noob and coward and all that stuff related to my sexual orientation. Well, I ignored the rage and politely asked if he was interested in fighting me 1v1 to prove his skill. I have done this numerous times before (usually after a trolling session) but not once have i been challenged to a duel by a ganker. To my surprise, he accepted the offer and promised to summon me in moonpit. I used one of my sl 120 builds and he used an sl 135 build.
First fight: I see he has the gold tracer and dwgr. I just out ranged him with mlgs and poked a few times with velka's rapier. I think he hit me twice.
Second fight: He realized he's not gonna catch me with the gold tracer stunlock and instead had parrying dagger and dark silver tracer. He got one poise backstab but otherwise didn't hit me once. He also ate all 5 soulmass orbs and rolled right in to my manual aim mlgs r2 and died.
Third fight: He desperately spams his parrying dagger and i decide to see if he actually knows the parry timing and i spam mlgs attack at him. He actually did parry me and soon after that backstabbed me to death. This is what always happens when i start fooling around in duels. Embarrassing death.
Last fight: I decided to teach him a lesson about countering backstabs and equipped a shotel. Locked off r1 spam stunlock almost killed him when he tried to circle behind my back. He ate some soulmass orbs again (god those things hit hard with tcc) and I finished him with a counter bs.
Well, it was a weird experience. Never before has a ganker actually agreed to duel me. In all honesty, it was nowhere near as satisfying to beat the crap out of a ganker in duels as i always imagined. But it did remind me of Brokewilly's incident with that one ganker who even uploaded a video about him. I couldn't find it anymore when i searched for it. Has it been deleted?
