      Why do people start rumors?

      I am confused, why do people like starting and spreading rumors? If anyone can provide an honest answer I would be most grateful. A little story that happened to me...

      I was fighting the gurtok with Max at my side. As usual I got a number of people asking me a ton of questions about him, the usual being, "where did you get that pet?".

      Well I answered truthfully and immediately one wizard told me I was lying. He went on to say that the tempest hound was dropped in the labyrinth and that his friend had one that he got from there. As politely as I could I replied that it was impossible, that the tempest hound is a rare pet you have a chance getting when you hatch the school pets, orthrus and stormzilla. Well this young wizard continued to argue, telling me I had no idea what I was talking about, that his friend did not have either a stormzilla or an orthrus and that is was a drop from a boss in the labyrinth. He continued to yell at me and call me a liar so I simply switched realms.

      That is one example, and there are plenty more. Even here on central rumors are started only most of us are a little to wise to fall for them. But what about the younger wizards, those that have just started their adventures in the spiral? Those look up to more experienced wizards or simply those that love the game and are thirsty for knowledge about it.

      Please, please please, can someone tell me why these rumors get started?

      Maybe:

      *for attention
      *perhaps they were misinformed by someone else
      *because they like to cause arguments

      Who knows really why people do the things they do.

      Re: Why do people start rumors?

      I really wish I could give you a good answer. However, the only reason I can think of is that someone may have tricked that person or the person spreading the rumor feels betrayed by someone and since he/she cannot get back at the one they are mad at, they start lying and spreading rumors to hurt someone else. It is the same concept of bullying I think.
      "I was hurt so I will hurt as many people as possible to get rid of my anger and frustration." What the rumor spreader does not realize is that it only makes them look bad.
      I am probably over thinking though. Watch too many daytime talk shows lol.

      Re: Why do people start rumors?

      People usually do it to get attention or if someone gave them false info. I start a rumor when I am bored in game but tell them the truth right afterr. Like usually people ask how I got Sammy (grimzilla) and I would say it is a gift from god but then after tell them the truth. But some rumors that people keep spreading are sometimes touble.

      Re: Why do people start rumors?

      I have noticed many players just can't admit when they are wrong too. You have the pet you obviously know where you got the pet, so why would he need to get so upset? and personal about it? IDK maybe someone he admires greatly told him that and he doesn't know how else to respond.

      Re: Why do people start rumors?

      Rumors are really annoying, in real life and in the game. People start them for the same reasons the do in real life, attention. If you got people asking you questions, sending friend requests and what not, you were successfull in your rumor. Of course on Central, we are a little more smarter to fall for such silly rumors, and usually we ask for picture proof. It isn't the same in game. I also feel bad for those younger wizards who fall for those rumors, as they can't tell if they are honest or not.

      I heard that the kraken is now dropping a gamma pet & a gamma mount - which is really cool because the new level 58 balance spell is going to be a gamma attack and the new world is really going to be called gamma world... (really it all came from my best friend whose neighbor is married to a guy who wrote a letter to ki and got an official response)
