I would like to address an issue I am seeing fairly often with how parties get organized. The issue is parties that get formed, fill up, and then the whole party ends up waiting for one or two people to run to the marketplace for one item, run to house j for reagents, then over to house p for reagents, then take a 5 min smoke break, and so on.
I once did catacombs with a group where the party leader was spending more time between quests, just in the marketplace tent, than on the actual quests themselves. A lot more time. Ridiculous.
With the amount of time that it can sometimes take to put together PuGs, this kind of behavior is, IMO, inexcusable.
