    Backstabs, sigh.

    So I just invaded Darkroot with my 120 and lost three 1v2s fairly quick. It's pretty ridiculous how easily I get backstabbed rolling around like a rabbit on speed. When I am directly behind them and attempt to backstab it never works for me sad

    Flask = My win
    Sorcery = Useless
    I get negative rep points for making a valid point

    There's something to be said for choosing not to exploit the lag

    its lag and dont go to darkroot unless you wann get gangbanged by the host and 2 sunbros. i'd go to the painted world.

    Night gathers, and now my watch begins.
    I am the sword in the darkness, I am the watcher on the walls, I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realm of men.
    I pledge my life and honor to the knight's watch for this night and all the nights to come.

    Backstabs and riposte in pvp are just different than pve bs or riposte. Its not a cheap or unfair tactic, you're just using your pve experiences in an arena where they have no bearing. If you are performing a BS in pvp it looks 100% legit on your screen (and it is). It occasionally looks strange on the guy's screen who is being stabbed, and its disappointing how most players just write it off as a cheap trick because in reality the guy scored a legit bs on you. It takes some getting used to, I suggest looking up some of the videos on youtube on the subject, very informative.
