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?
