    The same players in the shroud after making it through a few parts. "Hey guys I have to go, I have an emergency, sorry - real sorry about this guys."

    The same two people had 4 or 5 different emergencies in the same day.

    Just put up an LFM, Shroud parts 1-4 until ransacked.
    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.

    When you put up a lfm, get ppl in and they nag you because your in clearing and they waited outside for full group.
    When toon dies in cleared dungeon just before completition.
    When after type if you need buff i wait 1 min go shrine and ppl start typing needed buffs.
    PPL who in BYOH group dont have pots/scrolls.
    When first timer just does something in raid that makes it near fail, becuase he didnt ask what to do, or just didnt follow. [ Titan pillar killing ]

    Vets who join pugs, zerg through without talking to group, finish out the quest and leave with a snitty comment about crappy pugs.
    Pugs who complain about zerging.
    The phrase, "sorry, guildies need me."
    Shroud runs with 5+ players under level 17.
    Waiting for a healer and a wf tank. As if every raid will fail without a wf tank and 3 clerics.
    Waiting.

    We used to do shroud with 12 players under 17. We did em with weapons that didnt break dr. We did em faster than most pugs full of level 20's. Its not the level thats important here its the player.

    Any raids that now require 20's to get threw (like level really means competence) I hate that people think that 14's cant run things like the shroud um..we did that for awhile before the cap raise.

    Being in the middle of a raid on one of my better knowns and having people send me tells. Yeah look at the who list before you start spaming me questions please and try not to get offended if im not answering you while running a TOD for petes sake.

    Pugs who tell me im running to fast or not to open a door unless the whole group is ready when everything is dead already..yeah because I really want to do a quest that should only take 15 mins top a full 2 hours while you put on buffs you dont need..

    Sounds legit to think so, but I have joined a few PUGS, when LFM said one thing, and they were through with that and on to something else. I go to Kobold assault looking for group to find they have moved on to Market Place.

    I know, you can see location of individuals in the LFM panel, but does that mean they are coming back to location of Quest listed in LFM or on to something different.

    Leaders tend to forget those LFM's after a while.

    Well, I don't typically like to Zerg. I enjoy running Quests for the experience of Questing, not necessarily XP. I usually put a note in my LFM...no Zerging. I like to do optionals and hit breakables.

    So if you join my PUG and don't follow my request, I will drop you as soon as I have a chance.

    I am frequently asking Zergers to stay with the group. If you want to run fast through a Quest, don't join my group.

    Sure, we may not really need all of those buffs, but what does it hurt to wait one minute for a caster to throw a couple of buffs on. The Caster gets to think he actually had something to do with completing the quest. He might enjoy watching Mobs die unmercifully, the the characters he just buffed still have full health because he threw on Bulls Strength, Bears Endurance & a host of other buffs

    I find too many people are obsessed with getting their toon to 20 as quick as possible, so they can what...TR and do it all over again. Kinda Boring if you ask me.

    I might Zerg through a quest if I just need a few XP for next level, but that is the only time.

    Well I dont join groups that say go slow so you will never have to worry about that, but many have sent my girls a tell to come help them threw a quest and putz around. Im a single mom I use my time sparringly between this my one real shot a me time and my kid who is my world. So while sure there are players who want to flower sniff threw a quest and more power to them im not one of those players anymore. New areas I make the time to take my time when I know they are being released but something like HIPS which after 17 alts have done it a few times n/h/e yeah im not going to worry about people buffing up for a few ogres that I killed already.

    Its about perspective If I join an lfm that says quick run and its not a quick run I make it so. I dont join go slow lfms and in my bio make it clear how I tend to run unless asked up front to do so other wise. I respect most play styles even if I dont want to run that way and try to avoid it most of the time.

    and special edit as of yet to have any TR I like leveling I like getting new spells, skills and approaching a class in new ways. Not to say I wont make a TR one day (my poor archer needs to do something) but seriously not everyone rushing to get to 20 is doing it just for reincarnate some of us want to see the work we put into a build pay off at higher levels. Like I said before its about perspective and I dont assume everyone heading towards a goal is doing so for the same reason.

    Nope, didn't know that. Started training my healer on raids by joining shrouds and not completing and have had the worst time with low level groups - not getting through part 1, etc. I've never wished for pick lock so much as when I'm standing outside a door watching someone bounce randomly on puzzle tiles. As someone said above - it's the player - and it seems when I find a group of level 17's the players make sure I don't have to worry about ddooring at the end.

    ok I have a few more.

    If you're generous enough to offer your raid loot up for roll...

    Wrong:
    Does anyone want this shard?

    Even more wrong:
    Anyone need this?

    Right:
    d40 for the shard of ironweave

    Even Better:
    d40 for <link item here>

    Don't chose the same dice roll as someone else. If possible don't say it over voice because it's hard then to scroll up and keep track of who is offering what.

    And of course it's your loot so do what you want with it
