A dramatic mak'gora duel erupts in World of Warcraft Classic over a stolen belt
A World of Warcraft Classic loot dispute turns into a dramatic mak'gora duel as a belt stolen from a hunter sparks a heated argument between the two classes. The tense, lengthy argument leads to a showdown on the steps of Shadowfang Keep – with the belt at stake – as the mage and the hunter, supported by their guildmates, engage in an intense, drawn-out grudge match.
The Hunter loot controversy in WoW Classic spurs a dramatic duel as the mage claims he is the rightful owner of the Belt of Arugal. The belt is being worn by the hunter, who claims it was dropped by a boss. The mage, however, claims that the hunter stole it from him. The mage and the hunter, supported by other members of their guild, engage in a heated argument, with the mage issuing a mak’gora challenge to the hunter to settle the argument in single combat.
The duel begins with the mage using frost nova and accidentally breaking his own crowd control, allowing the hunter to win the first duels. The duelists gather a crowd and receive buffs from onlookers. The hunter initially declines, requesting buffs for his pet. The hunter then accepts the challenge, and the duel begins. The mage’s frost nova is again used, and this time, the hunter uses line of sight to his advantage to win the second duel. The crowd surrounds the defeated mage’s body, spamming ‘f.’
The video of the duel is posted on the WoW and classic WoW subreddits and receives thousands of upvotes. The mage reflects on the experience, admitting to panicking during the fight. “It’s not often you get challenged to a mak’gora,” the mage admits, “and it’s certainly not often that you lose one.” The outcome of the hunter and the belt remains unknown.
Classic hardcore adds an element of risk to even the most mundane of loot disputes. More grudge matches are expected in the future, and the likelihood of a Fight Club recreation in less than two months is predicted.
