Very simple, you see a high level ganker, whip out your polearm or sword, run around in small cirles around the ganker, and keep spamming 1, or 3. He will not be able to hit you as there is a small delay for autofacing. His combos will also miss, quite a lot, as long as you dont run into them. As a guardian, I had managed to kill gankers 12+ levels above me, and the evidence is there in TESSO and OOC chat. I find it most useful to run around like this even in ordinary mach, whilst waiting for cooldown and what not, it also regens my HP lol (because of my class). On a side note, you must be "strafing" the target, and also if you get snared or crippled youre pretty much scrwed untill yuo can free yourself. I suggfest using a KD or stun whilst you are snared to buy you some time.
Anyway, CITY GUARDS, if you stand in front of a GUARD, and someone attacks you, the guards will engage them, but the attacker can still run away and guards will not chase, so Knock the attacker down or stun him so the guards can inflict some heavy whoop ass. If you need to go afk, do it in front of city guard, saved my ass many times.
