Today while hunting spiders in griz Duncan Iceshild would join my fight but would just let the timer run out and not cast anything. So I asked him if he was just letting me fight alone and he just answeared LOL. I hit the Flee button. But this is one of the problem with people being able to join a fight. It is so makes me so mad at times. Dont get me wrong... Some times there are good people. But there are just so many out there trying to get free exp.

There's another wizard like that running around in Mooshu. He joins a fight and just put shields on himself. Once in a while he will cast a wand spell. He has tons of pips in front of him, and doesn't cast any power spells. I ended up defeating everyone by myself. Sorry I don't remember his name. He did this to me twice, and then when I finished the second battle, I pressed "escape" and switched realms to lose him.

yea, also what is the fun in that anyways and the point in playing the game? that is just boring! i did that once though, but it wasnt on purpose. my friend on there wanted to show me something in one of the worlds, and i was a low level, she a high level, and she told me to just keep passing, and there was someone she was fighting with but didnt know. so i hope they didnt think i was doing the same thing. haha

What's worse is it gives an easy opportunity to grief. See someone in trouble? Join, wait for another mob to jump in and flee.
Even if the player survives, it makes the fight much longer and more tedious.

i hate it when people do that! sometimes, though, they don't do it on purpose. If you get sucked into a fight, and you're away from the keyboard (afk) then your character just sits there. but if they ARE casting spells on themselves, then they're just being mean. So please don't do it!
