Well even if you don't actually want to join the fight you can at least make some shields for the poor guy.

well maybe about a moth ago some one tried vamping me(i don't think I was the single target but just one person in a crowd being targeted could be wrong though). In this case all I did was sent a nasty felling ping to hem and it stopped.

They most likely were trying to pull energy off of the crowd, and didn't know anyone in it would notice, yep. That's common. Most likely no malicious intent, since they stopped when you made your presence and disapproval known.

I wont do anything about it unless the victim is family, friends, or loved-one. And if the victim was I would protect the victim to my last dying breath. I consider everyone in the guild my friends.

well, i guess the safe answer would be the maybe answer. however, this might not be applicable in all situations. for instance if you see someone vamping someone to death, you cant just say "excuse me but may i know why you are vamping him to death?" you cant waste time because someone will die. you cant deliberate for hours. you have to act fast. so maybe if that's the situation, i will try my best to stop the fight by defending the one being attacked but i will not attack the attacker. but i will make sure that no one escapes and everything will be settled and the bad person will get what he deserves.

Funny moment picturing you explaining to the police so the psi-vamp gets punished (sorry amaterasu i know it wouldnt be like this but it was pretty funny)
I agree with you, if someones being seriously attacked you cant just sit down and think what to do, even if youre a noob (like me :P) you still can punch the agressor and knock him out

However nons might see your punch as
unwarnted attack so I recomend a psi
based solution like shielding the attacker
and vamping him/her.
