Default Boy saves sister from MOOSE attack with WoW skills!

NEWS: https://www.nextnature.net/2010/05/n...rcraft-skills/

Quote:
Hans Jørgen Olsen, a 12-year-old Norwegian boy, saved himself and his sister from a moose attack using skills he picked up playing the online role playing game World of Warcraft..

Hans and his sister got into trouble after they had trespassed the territory of the moose during a walk in the forest near their home. When the moose attacked them, Hans knew the first thing he had to do was ‘taunt’ and provoke the animal so that it would leave his sister alone and she could run to safety. ‘Taunting’ is a move one uses in World of Warcraft to get monsters off of the less-well-armored team members.

Once Hans was a target, he remembered another skill he had picked up at level 30 in ‘World of Warcraft’ – he feigned death. The moose lost interest in the inanimate boy and wandered off into the woods. When he was safely alone Hans ran back home to share his tale of video game-inspired survival.
Important to note here the lad wasn't born when WoW launched.......

Yea, I can't help feel that the kid was really playing EQ, they just renamed the game to WOW for readership to understand!

It was roughly around the time I found P99, I'm having flashbacks.

The real story here is a hunter actually used FD to drop aggro instead of just facerolling

I think it's sexist he wouldn't let his sister tank the boss fight.

Rogues can get agro and lose agro. They just aren't called taunt and FD.
