View Full Version : LFM quest options panel

As a player relegated to PUG land, I wouldn’t mind seeing some type of LFM quest options panel where you could select quests that you were looking to run. When a LFM went up with the quest you selected, the system would notify you with a /tell in chat. Or it would create a popup window that would show you the created LFM with the details and an option for requesting to join. This would only notify you if the created LFM was for your selected class and level. Maybe have an option to prohibit it from popping up if you are already in a party. Then you could run solo or even grind out explorer areas without the need to constantly check for LFMs.

You could add a VIP perk that would allow you to see the other side of the requested quest panel. So if you wanted to create a LFM to lead a group, you could check to see how many available toons have requested to run a particular quest. It could even list the levels and character classes of the toons that are requesting to join, but it would not show name or guild information.

This could also be implemented on a guild level where you could have a LFM quest options panel just for guild members. If you still had spots left over you could transfer the LFM to the general populace and fill any remaining spaces. I think this would save a lot of time looking for groups and possibly add another layer to the game.

I do apologize if this suggestion is misperceived as taking any time away from breathing new life into the quest chain.

Not a bad idea, helluva lot of coding though. I do like the quest requested part. I'd say show the details though. Would make pugging a Shroud run much quicker... that is if the requesters aren't all out walking the dog.

Don't agree with the guild idea though. If you're in a guild, you should be guild chatting about the quest and gathering members before putting it up as an lfm.

Well, if you were in a guild, then you could just show a list of what the members are looking for and still create it through chat. Maybe you could add an option to make yourself unavailable for your selected quests without having the need to deselect everything. Maybe have it carry over even if you log out and back in.

I like this idea +1

Now if you really wanted to add something cool, have another LFM options panel that would span across servers. For those of us that play really screwed up hours, it would be a breeze to find almost any available quest regardless of the hour.
