Calm, children.

You now have RPP that will soon be useful. I personally use forum behavior as part of the formula for the award of these points, children. I'm addition to their removal.

I didn't think we were being mean this time. Sorry.

Swimming in a river while people are shooting arrows at you is a great way to get killed FAST.

"Isildur put on the Ring though it pained him and headed for the Anduin. He removed his armor and waded into the River intending to try to cross it, but the current was strong and pulled him toward the marshes of the Gladden Fields. Then the Ring left Isildur's finger and was lost in the waters. Isildur felt an overwhelming sense of loss, but was then relieved as if a great burden had been lifted from him. He rose out of the water, but at that moment, he was spotted by orcs who shot him with arrows through the throat and heart."

In case anyone doesn't get the reference.

Sounds like the rising up was the problem, not the swimming.

Much like landing is often the real problem, rather than falling.

If you truly believe that there is a game breaking issue that allows people to unfairly deal with threats that are placed in the game world. Sending a support ticket in or finding some way to inform staff of specifically what the issue is will probably lead to it being fixed if they think it's to much.

That being said... It is extremely hard to change player behavior that is beneficial to the survival of a character. You either need to upgrade the NPCs to recognize bow fire and reposition themselves or make it so they are not in a position along the river to be sniped from unless baited there perhaps?

OR

If you want to be super sneaky. Have 1/2 the pack run to the bridge to cross to the other side and begin roaming while the original half stays to be shot at. Leading to 7 wargs devouring said pesky hunter.

I'm also a fan of that second one, because that breaks the warg pack up into a manageable number to deal with. A pack of seven wargs would be....rough, even for a veteran group of hunters.
