12-Year Old Boy Rescues Sister From Moose Using World of Warcraft Skills: Our Best Headline Yet

by Lambert Varias

12-year old Norweigan Hans Jørgen Olsen saved himself and his sister from being harmed by an angry moose by emulating skills he learned from World of Warcraft. According to NextNature, the Olsen siblings “trespassed the territory of the moose during a walk in the forest near their home.” When the moose attacked, Hans used the Warrior ability Taunt, i.e. he taunted the moose, thereby allowing his sister to escape. Stage 1 complete.

Next he had to save himself. There’s an ability for that – the Hunter skill Feign Death. Hans lay still on the ground. The moose, exhibiting typical low-level monster behavior, left the boy alone and wandered off. Then Hans transformed into a Death Knight and returned home wearing moose antler headgear. Nah. After the animal left he immediately went home to brag about his accomplishment, which is brag-worthy indeed. You are a noble warrior with a manly name, Hans Jørgen Olsen! Enjoy your Internet fame.

*Edit: as commenter Steam pointed out, this awesome event took place on November 20, 2007, about about three years ago, ruining my joke about Hans transforming into a Death Knight. My apologies for not looking that up when I posted this.*

    haha ! this is great. Deffinately the best thing ive seen for a long time. Just one problem. Warriors can not do hunter moves ! and Hunters cannot do warrior moves. What he really did was distracting shot while his sister ran out of combat !

  6. Steam says:

    Your news is about 2-and-a-half years old. Massive fail.

      It would indeed be a pointless post… IF you can prove to me that everyone has read about this. Judging from the comments, I think the opposite is true. On the other hand, I should have looked at the original article and mentioned that the events took place back in 2007. That’s my bad.

      • Steam says:

        It’s impossible to prove that every person knows of an event, even disregarding the statistics of people who care/don’t to even read such a thing. I never said it was pointless anyways, just old. I just remember when it first circulated the Internets is all.

    This is a classic story and the best part is that it is a true story. But the question remains if the skill to do this is not derived at first from real life by Blizzard into the game and that the 12 year old kid then learned from this later when playing the game. The important thing is that they got safely away.

    When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the exact same comment. Is there a means you are able to remove me from that service? Thanks!

  14. GarlandMohammad says:

    It’s actually very complicated in this busy life to listen news on TV, therefore I simply use the web for that purpose, and get the most recent news.
