    Woah close call with a PK

    I was in an act 2 questing game with my new remade druid (level 16 at the time, approx 350 hp) when this level 25 paladin joins and hostiles everyone (name was Manson or something like that). This guy calls his level 40 something barb friend to come help, and I ask the barb to check my tp to see if it was clear. He went in, and said nothing for about 10 seconds, so I figured it was safe. I walked in and just as I was entering the TP he said "he's here", but I was already through the TP.

    So I get charged right away, I hit esc, but before I can hit enter he hits me. I see my entire life bulb go down to nothing so I'm like "****", but I left the game anyways. I looked in the channel, hm still alive. So I joined the game again, and 1 hp. I survived his charge with 1 hp :)

    Heh.

    Wow, you are VERY lucky! Bet you are glad for eeeevery little tiny bit of life on him eh? Was your druid shapeshifted at the time? because if a hit was going to 1 hit ko a druid at his shapeshifted life, he transforms back into a human at 1 hp, so its possible you had, say the 350 life as a wolf/bear, he hit you for 375 pvp dmg, which should ko you, but insted of dying, you transform into a human at one life, then you quit.. if not, you are extremly lucky he JUST missed enough damage.

    This "feature" has been around forever and i believe it prevents the druid from dying to ANYTHING in one hit while in shapeshift form. He will shapeshift to human form with 1 hitpoint and then die if hit again.

    Yep, Snowdrake, you left at the right time!

    He damaged you enough for a 1 hit kill, but luckily for you, it is still currently impossible to 1 hit kill a druid!!

    Heh so maybe I wasn't so lucky, because yes I was shapeshifted, but I suppose in that case I'm glad I shapeshifted :) (I did right before I entered the portal)

    Hmmmm that's an interesting feature of shapeshifted druids... would this actually protect me from the fire enchanted one hit KO glitch?

    One would think so, but I have nonetheless heard multiple stories of Druids still getting pwned by this. Maybe someone who's actually experienced it can testify here.

    Unexpectedly de-forming can be a pain if you were leeching well enough (ll)

    Just to clarify my post, I was talking about PvPing a druid. No death explosion was considered.
    I think death explosion by monsters don't care about the 1 life druid immortality bonus.

    Eh that makes no sense. It might have something to do with it being fire and physical, so two different hits? Who knows.
    Lucky you were a druid, I can see the pally sitting there with like 50k charge going 'wtf..'

    All has been said on why you didn't die, but one thing: Why on earth did you take the TP when nothing was said?? That's suicidal :lol:

    On double's note...here's a situation I see fairly often...

    Sorc teleporting around to throne
    Sorc gets to throne sees 238957 monsters and makes a TP incase he has to make a quick exit
    Person in town waiting asks "safe?"
    Sorc says nothing...too busy trying to herd monsters out of one corner without dying
    Impatient person waiting in town goes down
    Impatient person waiting in town was slain by Gloam
    OMG TRAPPED TP YOU SDFLJKDSHF!!!!11

    Exactly..... People running into a tp from me without the word : "s" is on their own..... If no word = "not safe".

    But hey - did it myself not long ago becauss I was so impatient and nearly got my a** handed... lol
