Possibly a bug, but a bit hard to take. OK so I was adventuring in Crag Foothills, flagged PVP for the XP bonus. Came to an area where there was a collection of skeletons and elves, so a brawl developed. Then on the edge I saw another player, also flagged. Hmm - is he going to attack..... err yes he is. Did the best I could in the mayhem but died. No issue there, all fair and above board. Got the message about ransom, as I had died to an outlander. Couldn't care less as it happened - he pinched one of the many wands I had looted. Keep it!! Then I rezzed, and found my XP had gone down by about 60 K. Looking at the combat log, the final blow was landed by a skeleton - that's what actually killed me. So the only thing that peeves me - I can deal with the ransom thing, OR the XP loss if I die to a mob, but not both please!! My understanding is that if you die in PVP you do not suffer a XP loss. @Chris - is this a bug?
