You have been away from the lands for some time, so I'll assume you aren't entirely up to speed with the current favoured tactics of your citymates. Bominog was moving in and out of legions to avoid attack. He is however more than happy to team with his other useless buddies, more than happy to send his rits at people - favouring the good old thakrian favorite, the conquistador globestave until recent changes were made and more than happy to run his mouth at every opportunity.
What we were doing there is irrelevant. The fact is, like Tempre pointed out, he was abusing a game mechanic to avoid ACTUALLY having to fight.
