    You know we like you thel. At least healemup is always talking about how you look in that tight armor.

    Doing a good job here is like peeing in a dark suit.

    You get a warm feeling, but nobody really notices.

    Seriously
    My Guildie Quik wanted to do an Elite Shroud last night--we brought new people to the raid, no big deal normally. . .cept they did not communicate at all--we had 6 people in our group who could/would not communicate on any level. . .One was because of a language barrier and we dealt with it, but the rest? They did talk or type in english before the raid started, but were non responsive once we started, so they have no excuse.

    Quik asked them questions over and over, assigned certain people to do things, and was ignored for pretty much the entire run--I mean we typed questions, we asked questions in voice chat, we typed Boss assignments as well as stated them, we had a few archers in group as well as a few melee who did not seem to have many HP so we were trying to assign people to pin Harry in on Part 5 and people just didnt answer any questions, or listen when we did assign people to pin Harry in--it was pretty frustrating. After part 2 I wanted to call it cuz I knew it was going to be disastrous in parts 4 and 5 when only two people went to the boss they were assigned ( we had me on cleric and the other CLeric was listening quite well, and a guild caster) --Part 4 and 5 were carried by pretty much 5 people. . .Part 4 after the first round I blinked my eyes and 5 people died from the devils, seriously it was like they all got one shotted. . .which pointed to a very painful part 5.

    Yes we did finish, but by gosh that was one of the longest Elite Shroud runs Ive ever been in, I had to use RESOURCES, and really I don't feel that I should have to resort to Blade Barrring and Harms on elite to get horoth down-I mean he saves against BB quite a bit on elite and doesnt really move well enough. The rangers wouldn't even listen to me when I told them where to stand so as not to get hit by the blades and DIE--we had to leave 6 or 7 people dead to finish this.

    Now its true these people had huge AC and HP probs and Prob Heavy Fort problems, but if they would've at least been responsive and communicative, it would not have been so frustrating, I get that people are new, and I don't mind taking them through some of the harder quests/raids, but after last night, I have to ask myself why if people are just going to ignore us?
    Run ahead and kill everything? Ok!

    Quik, I think that you are being a lot nicer than I am--there were 6 pikers in that group, not including you.

    I hope Quik at least got to wear his King of the Pikers tag or something. I mean, now there are pikers and there are .... Quiks.

    Oh, and then there are party members who "lag spike" throughout Von6 epic. I hate those guys.

    Talking some ways to kill them

    Look every on nose what to do with pikers and people that dose not answer right? if not, you drag the mob back to them and when thy die take there stone and put it in deep water a hole or in lava far away from the shrine. and in the first five min thy don't answer reform drop. or if you are to far in just keep getting them killed thy will leave on there own do not healing them but do the rest of the group, no help with mobs if thy are in fight stand back and watch them and if thy ask for help don't answer this works for me and it very funny (to have a person who not answering you no matter what you do)do not answer them when thy want to know why you doped there stone in a pool of lava of even further away from the shrine. really it works Just keep getting them killed.

Thankfully, I haven't had this happen too much, and almost never in a situation where it really mattered (like Shroud on Elite), but I hear ya.

    Even a simple emote like /nod would be nice.

    There's one real genius recently that I've learned to avoid like the plague... he pikes his own groups. He'll put up an lfm, fill a group, get in the dungeon and then go afk and hope the group completes for him. Needless to say, this doesn't usually go well.

    Also the same guy that put up that lvl 14-17 Shroud lfm, incidentally.

    Talking poor quik

    the problem with letting quik lead is that most players have him squelched and can't hear his inane instructioning. its true, ive done a survey.

    I played AC2, so I log in everyday expecting to see a message that the servers will be ending in 4 months. As such, every day they don't is a good day!! Play like the world will end, because it will.
