This is from b.net forums:

Today I was doing a quest in Felwood called Ancient Spirit, which involved escorting a lvl 56 Ancient of War from Irontree Woods to Ashenvale. My friend and I managed to fight everything on the way out, and the various ambushes along the road. Then, when we were almost to Ashenvale, a lvl 58 Undead Warlock proceeds to attack the poor tree. Said undead did not recieve a flag for PVP, and we were forced to helplessly watch the tree be defeated by them. Blizz, are you going to allow this to continue? There is no point in doing this quest as it is because high level horde can simply come in and grief you repeatedly.


That really sucks, because that quest is long. You have to escort a tree from the top of felwood all the way into ashenvale, which is at least a 10 min escort, which really blows as it is...... this is so horrible :/

thats just not cool. they oughta modify escort quests so that anything that attacks your target is attackable in return by you. either that, or the less realistic(but harder to grief) method--make all of the escort victims unattackable by any player.

If it's a pvp server you can just kill the players instead. like I do when they're about 90% of the way there.

It has been like that since the beta. Why they havn't made him PvP flagged yet is beyond me. I think what they aught to do is as soon as you start the quest, give him *your* pvp flag. Because I *think* Horde can do this quest as well, so essentially if an Alliance group started it, he would be alliance flagged, and if a Horde group started it, he would be Horde flagged. Either that, or make him unattackable by human players (though I'm not sure if this is possible while still allowing him to be attacked by mobs - I suppose if he was mearly "friendly" to both factions it might work)

well i cant say I know anything about the quest, but why would a quest where
you escort an ancient be available to the horde?

BFL: yeah, but on a PvP server the players can fight right back and as such this problem is a nonissue

True, but it presents another problem. I don't think he sees players attacking as a threat so he doesn't stop to fight. Making it possible for me to draw the players away (or they could continue following him and just not fight back in which case they'll die) as he continues to walk. It's pretty much impossible to complete the mission if anyone attacks I've found.
