Since the rumour mill seems to be out of control I'd like to clarify a few things.
1. Using vaxvarna in a challenge (especially when on a weapon BEFORE the fight starts) is NOT stripping. I will never consider using a poison or a fisticuffs skill STRIPPING. There's a very simple defense.
2. If you're just off of MW, you're fair game. We don't need 18 tiers of fighters. If you want to jump people in their city, you've especially marked yourself.
3. If you do fight someone who takes some items off of you, whether in a challenge or not, and they give you MORE than they took and go out of their way to help FURTHER equip you, don't bitch about being \"stripped. \"
4. Don't go around spreading further rumours and making posts if you don't know both sides of the story.
