Line 1: Line 1:
The term '''gank''' has several meanings, but often implies an overwhelmingly large [[group]] or much higher leveled player killing you and/or your group. ("A 60 Hordie ganked me"" or "Alliance players are ganking lowbies") It frequently carries the implication the attack is overwhelming or otherwise clearly biased against the individual, either being substantial lower in level or having been previously weakened by an unrelated threat.
+
The term '''gank''' has nothing at all to do with MMORPGS and means "to steal something."
 
Successful ganks usually consist of very short fights and depend on tactics like high burst [[DPS]] and the ability to hide; Rogues are the prototypical ganker. Areas such as [[Stranglethorn Vale|"Ganklethorn Vale"]] and [[Hillsbrad Foothills]] are infamous for ganking, as they are locations that naturally overlap differently-leveled characters of opposing factions.
