However in the above post the thing that stuck in my mind was this minding pet and killing the competion while you made your way there. He had a right to the spawn as much as anyone and sadly he was there before you but having a high level friend kill him to save the pet for you would have had me raging too. That instance is different to the others who posted regarding people griefing for the sake of appeasing their immature needs.
That's true, but not really much different than if my guildie had been there ready to tag the pet for himself, instead of waiting to see if I could get there before someone else went for it.
Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it), the non-CRZ'd realms are the last of their type so the people on them don't usually take kindly to strangers randomly showing up to "steal" rares/battle pets whether that be from someone inviting them from another realm or all the new 58 DKs.
Now that it's been a few days since it's been out, I'm not sure how it is on the more populated realms but it seems to have calmed down a bit on people searching for it on lower populated realms and therefore also less ganking (and pet ganking).
