2020 Challenger Death Lists
Ster’s 2020 Death List
– 6 pacifists, all rogues, often stepping on or accidentally targeting low-level NPCs.
– 5 druid irons, highest being 118 and 113, often trying to steal a chest, got mobbed.
– 2 Shadowlands deaths, both at level 53, iron rogue. Doing a quest in Bastion, had scouted it, watched other players. Apparently the quest randomly or as a bug will kill your toon. Sigh, this is what irons do, find Blizzard bugs. Another death was to a Gilded Cloudstrider, gored me. Do not melee fight these things, they will 2 shot you.
– 1 druid pacifist, in BfA, got webbed by spiders, then a pack of wolves joined in. Nature hates me.
– 1 monk, minding his own business in Hillsbrad, got dismounted by yeti, became soup of the day.
Death that left a look of surprise on the toon’s corpse: Outlaw rogue flying around WinterSpring looking for treasure, done it a million times. Flying over the cave at Starfall Village, there is a mysterious no-fly spot – try it yourself, it is near the letter T of Starfall Village on your map. Toon was dismounted and fell to her death.

Dave’s 2020 Death List
So it begins…
Paladin Crackanegg started life as a Human Paladib, mercillesly and cruelly struck down by Sgt Whathisname in Westfall. Started as an Iron contender and laid to rest at level 14.
A Kul Tiran Priestess kicks off in Elwyn forest, off exploring Mines encounter Massive Combat Laser equipped Kobolds, no chance here folks. This Green Iron fell to Laser fire at level 26, Lasers!

Still in the timeframe allowed by the contest, we have WowConThree, A Orcish Mage that managed to hang in there longer than Two, met his match in the Elven Scouts in Northwatch, Here we had our first signs of newer technologies in the alliance as they sprung upon Three with Lasers! yet again Lasers!
Billeye an unassuming Human Hunter, left his homeland to search out his own treasures in Dun Morogh, Instead while assisting the Dwarves at Amberstill Ranch he was gunned down by Laser Weilding troll fromDuritar, We can assume they stole them from the Alliance at Northwatch making their way to eastern Kingdoms and setting their sight on the dwarves at Ironforge! But Lasers, Friggin’ Lasers!
Percivole a Human Paladin, Green Iron hopeful battled long and hard Reaching a longtime highest level of 31 before falling in the Frostmane front of Dun Morogh, set upon by Troll Scavangers he fell to a single but fatal laserbolt, these lasers have got to go!

Frustration runs high during Contests:

SgtIlleye Night Elf Survival Hunter, L31 Nicer run but once again while in Loch Modan Troggs, with lasers, Friggin’ Lasers!

Tiber 2020 Death List
Greetings Leeta, Guest hosts, and Chatroom,
I hope everyone is well and coping with the challenges of 2020, as well as possible.
My Challenger death list is very short this year (for me), only 13, where normally I have had in the neighborhood of 30. Unfortunately, that low number is for mostly the wrong reasons. PC problems and ISP issues kept me from playing Challengers for a good part of 2020. All the changes happening in the Shadowlands prepatch, and the Shadowlands launch kept me from playing Challenge toons, while I learned how to cope with our new WoW environment. Also, I may have been distracted by the pursuit of a dinosaur mount…
My most vexing Challenger loss this year is a Shadowlands level 42 Pacifist. Shortly after the prepatch began I discovered she had an elemental kill. I can only imagine this happened during the Brewfest Dark Iron events. Maybe a proximity kill? Very disappointing, but I have another Pacifist now carefully approaching level 46. So, onward!
I hope everyone has a wonderful 2021 and levels many Challenge characters in the coming year,
1/ Pacileita Lvl81 Tauren Druid Pacifist – died 25/4/2020 – got jumped by 2 green tigers in Valley Pandalands while mining
2/ Bloodleetar Lvl30 Undead Warlock – died 24/7/2020 – got jumped by angry griffin when pulled Rare Wolf in The Hinterlands
3/ Bluleetae Lvl108 Gnome Hunter – died – nodded off for about 20secs and somehow still had my fingers on the keyboard… and flew straight into Grom’ Gol in STV
4/ Ironleitae Lvl37 NE Hunter – died 5/11/2020 – Tigers and Tricksters in Pandaland
