Noor the Pacifist in WoW

3 08 2008

Thanks to Wow Insider for this story.

It seems not everyone in World of Warcraft is savage, in fact, one player has sworn off killing all together.  His name is Noor, a gnome rogue.  And he’s a WoW pacifist.

This is my kind of performance art.  Noor is attempting to achieve the highest levels in the game without killing anything, not even NPC’s.  He has been playing as this character for quite a while and has managed to reach past level 60 – almost to his final goal of 70.  This is a demanding challenge for any player, but a near Herculean task when considering his self-imposed ban on killing.   He manages to contribute in non-lethal ways by performing escort missions, healing other players, and working in groups which allow him to gain the needed XP without killing.  He admits to making a few compromises to pull his weight in some of the more advanced battles, such as throwing stun bombs and whacking opponents with a fishing rod.  He has accidentally killed one or two times, but in a game like WoW, that’s the equivalent of “not inhaling”.

The character is named for RL spy Noor Inayat Khan, a member of the WWII French resistance, who was executed by the Nazis.  

You can read the whole interview with Noor here.  Noor’s blog can be found here.

If the horse is a good model and stands well during his
photo op, then work it. At present these consumer reports are extremely valuable.

Even though your goal is just to lose 5 pounds in a week, you should be
strict with what you do so as not to inadvertently undo
all your hard work for vegetarian weight loss.
It’s old news that tracking food intake could lead to losing
a few pounds [2]. Then leave it a while until your tummy lets you know that you’re hungry again before opting for a healthy snack.

The Nokia N8 provides an exciting alternative to some of the mainstream Smartphones which are currently available.
The EOS 50D’s body design allows the camera to fit perfectly in hands while taking even the most difficult shots. There are more important things to consider when deciding if you will pay more for a camera.

“Worked All Zones Award” is the same concept with time zones.
Hardware mechanisms used in the manufacturing of a Wi – Fi internet radio system is less complicated and the point of ergonomics
is kept in mind by the manufactures. Whats more is that 2G phones can come in a tinier and slimmer package,
even its batteries.
