On a serious note, you'd think after 7 months of Mod9, people would begin to get a clue about play skills, one of which is listening.
You talking about what they did in the Fire room/Ice room reminds me of Taming the Flames elite run (read = Noob destroying quest). I was on one of my Rogues I think. I told them, "Do not go in this room, I will get the key and come out in just a minute.". So I quaff a Fire Prot pot, Jump pot, ensure Trapblasts were on, and run in, pop chest, grab key, then run like a stripe-__ ape outta there, emerging pretty much unscathed.

I kept my mouth shut, but I was thinking, *** people? What part of 'do not go into this room' did they not understand? (natural curiousity is one thing, but save that for casual and normal folks!!). I mean, I didn't say anything, I just got what stones I could, like the nice guy Rydin_Dirtay is.

Ok, I can think of a couple classic moment that qualify for this post....
Running VoN 5&6 a couple of monthes ago. Seems most of the party did not know the quests so I helped walk them through it. We get through 5 without too much trouble and everyone is excited about 6. We get to 6 and prep and take down the pillars like a group of veterans who have done the quest multiple times. As soon as the door drops I start telling them to stay put....when I hear a whistling sound and THE DOOR APPEARS AGAIN LOCKING EVERYONE OUT!!! Seems someone go excited seeing the dragon and decided to toss a dagger at it.
Second noob moment was a Deleras run a couple of days ago. I join group and ask what we are running it on. Leader says we are doing all quests on hard and then again on elite. He then goes on to say that the first runs will be speed runs and second will be optionals. NP. We zone in and a ranger and my fighter start going in to kill things. We have the first room done and started the first lever room when the leader chimed in.(Leader was still at entrance)
Leader: Ranger, what are you doing so far ahead? You have to slow down so we can stay together.
Ranger: You said this was a speed run so I am killing things.
Leader: No I didn't! You need to read my LFM so you know what to do.
Ranger: Ok, but you LFM said first was speed.
Leader: I hate zergers. When we get done I am kicking you from group.
Ranger: I'll save you the trouble. (zones and drops group)
Me: Umm..I thought you wanted this to be a speed run. Thats what your post said.
Leader: (to rest of party) Let's recall so we can reform.
Me: Don't bother. (zoned and dropped then invited ranger to group)
After that we 2 manned Deleras as a speed run. By the time we finished part 3 the leader from the last group was still standing out front of part 1 with an LFM up saying speed run. LOL
... a soldier,
Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation,
Even in the dragon's mouth.
I had a party wipe on p2 of the Baudry chain :/
Me: guyz break the boxes!
party member: omfg I'm low on health healz!!!
Me: omg I fell off the ladder and died!!! CAn ne of u res????
party member: *** we down to 30 seconds left!!!
Me: hurry break boxes!!!
party member: we all dead we can't
You just turned your "noob's stupid remark of the week" into THE Noob's Stupid Remark of the Week!
Start another thread about how DDO needs to be more like WoW.
And I'm still waiting for you to link the "study" that you keep quoting. I'm sure I'll be waiting a while.
@Temko: He'd been trolling for quite a while now.
so, i enjoy helpings noobs out in korthos. dont know why, i guess it just gives me time re roll and help others while im a low lvl again.
so, this guy insisted on playing this game like a JRPG by trying to do each quest one by one not doing any of them over.
so, he was in my party with a couple other noobs. and they are all lvl 1, im lvl 1 also. they are like, well we are going to do quests out side.
i said that you guys are gonna die, and that ill be running quests in the village on hard. so after they all die following the other noob. while i said i know about the game and could help them a lot. res into the tavern and all blame me for not doing stopping the sagohan before im even rank2...\
so they die, and as they get back into korthos they get more noobs and die doing the same thing.
another funny thing that happened was this guy who had no quests done was asking me for help...i told him, lets run cannith, ware house, and crypt....he just kept running krpyt over and over i was telling him too lvl up with me doing all of the other quests. sooo, after 3 hours of me lvling up and him repeating cyrpt. he asks me...wanna do other quests now? i told him, im lvl 2, im leaving the gates...
then he apologized for being a noob and begged me for help
But I got one from the other day. I'm running favor in the Harbor and apply to a Kobold Assault LFM since I couldn't open on Elite. I'm standing outside and I get an invite thinking it was the group I applied to I accept. I see a guy enter so I follow without paying attention. I get in and notice the other guy is a Level 2 and we are in on Normal. He proceeds to ask, "Do you have a glowie weapon you can give me?" I apologize for the mistake and explain I was expecting an invite for an elite favor run and since I'm 20 and he's 2 this isn't going to work. He say, "Ok, I can do Elite." Yikes.

“If at first you don't succeed, keep on sucking till you do succeed.”
But (and I'm not joking here) I have to google stuff EVERY time I go on the forum to figure our what all the "tldr" "Ohforf" stuff means.
I am at this moment literally laughing audibly at the prospect.
(Man,I wish there was an easier way to express that sentiment )
FVS before starting tower raid:
"3 cure serious wands should be enough, right?"
Im a newer player...about 6 months now. I dont know if that still qualifies me as a NEWB or not (lol probably does). One of the biggest hurdles I had to get over was learning that DDO is NOT D&D, well not exactly. (im an old-school rp'er that goes way back to Basic D&D). Now that im over that, hey I might still be a newb, at least for now, but I do try my best to not be a NOOB. Um....mostly, anyway. I got this one female elf char thats a little off her rocker and says silly stuff all the time, but I try to keep that in fun and sort of "in-character", if you will. So maybe thats not quite a noobish thing.
I guess my point is...there seem to be alot of people who can't make the distinction. I get really tired of seeing someone being called a NOOB in chat because theyre asking--and not disrespectfully--about some feat or why these two items doesnt stack or whatever.
I recently left the newbie comfort zone of Paths and with the help of the character planner, started building my first couple custiom chars. I presented a breif outline of a build I had concieved (an ending 14 fighter/6 rogue), that I thought would be really cool cause of the dual PrE's I could snag. LOL then the Veteran players tore it apart. Not in a mean way, mind you. They told me why it wouldnt really work at higher levels, and with their assistance, I came to see the logic in what they were saying. I was a little miffed, but certainly not at them. Just kinda ticked I spent all that time on my "cool build" to find out in the end its not really all that cool.
So anyway, before I ramble further...good to know someone out there doesnt think anyone that hasnt been playing for 2 years is a "noob".
Oh, and as a contribution to the "noob statement of the week", heres something from an argument myself and a couple other players had vs. ......this guy:
Player 1:Why do kukris sell for so much at the auction house? are they valuable for some reason?
Illyandara (my crazy elf-chick): Kukris are the best slashing weapon a straight rogue can use, unless theyre an Elf or spend a feat to learn another one.
Another Player: Kukris are good slash weps for rogs
NOOB: Kukris arent slashing
Me: yes they are
NOOB: NO THEY ARENT!!! im looking at one right now! dont tell me im wrong!
About 10 other people: Kukris ARE indeed slashing weapons.
NOOB:.....oops. that was my dagger.
That may not be verbatim, but its awful close.
