    Default PSA-New People Joining LFMS Etitquette

    If an LFM clearly States what quest is being done, please don't join and beg to do a different quest and try to get everyone else to quit to do a different quest, especially if you are the last person and people are already inside the quest. . . Start your OWN LFM. A suggestion for the NEXT quest is always welcome, but trying to get a whole party to ditch the current quest is rude.

    Also, please don't beg to have the star I'm not sure why anyone would really want it, but the fact that you beg for it makes me think that you really should NOT have it.

    I am a glutton, and I pug a lot of stuff while leveling to try and meet new people, but the above is happening to me so much its finally reached it's boiling point and Ive had to dismiss people because they were so bad with this crazy begging.

    Is this a New kind of RP? If so pray tell, what is it called?

    yeah we had this happen to us too when we ran something the other night on our TRs....very strange. I really like it when they join a LFM that says FAST...in progress,keep up.....then ask for a share and where is quest....I wish I had Jedi powers......"This is not the LFM you're looking for"...make life easier for both parties.

    Where is this quest located?
    Things that if Turbine went all EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on, would actually make the game fun again.:
    • Giving us the racial PrE’s we were promised, before rolling out DDOStore™ Enhancement Trees.
    • One loot system to rule them all. (Including Cannith Crafting, and Named Loot.)
    • Fixing the Cannith Challenges so that they can be 6 starred without incredible luck or store bought items.
    • Adjusting Challenge XP so that they're worth running more than once.

    Instead of talking about the OP, can we discuss the fact the people CONSISTENTLY join LFMs that say "know what you're doing", die at the first mob and then admit they don't know what they're doing?

    I think it's a much more interesting topic than the OP, so let's discuss that instead.

    Our guild constantly fights over the star. It's like a game of musical chairs and the loser is the one that ends up stuck with it when the music stops.

    MAN I hope I'm never *that* guy.

    I'm a new player, but I guess having previous MMO xp helped me out some, b/c even *I'm* annoyed at the "shar plz" ****.

    Now, I have some sympathy for the "Where do you pick up this quest?" crowd, because some of the quests are kinda out of the way/not readily spottable on the map (stormcleave, the bodyguard, the Ataraxia chain, etc.), AND it shows that you WANT to learn, but don't really have the time b/c the quest is starting.

    Now, if they say that after joining a "know what you're doing" or "speed run" LFM, then they deserve all the "here's your sign" flak they can get.

    LOL awesome responses all, if only I had more rep to give

    I honestly don't mind the share plz.

    But I hate when someone asks that, and then someone in group tries to share every single quest in their log.

    I think it's their attempt to punish the share pls crowd, unfortunately punishing the rest of the group.

    With that in mind, I regret to say that about half of the time I forget to get the quests for Shavarath when I get a tell/guild message asking me to pls come help out, soooo used to meridia it isn't funny.
    Devs: Thanks for making Druids available to VIPs without the pack. This more than anything, has made me want to buy the pack.

    look at the bright side of this, after 1 or 2 times of this yo uwill have every quest in the game picked up and then this wont affect ya, but jsut think about the newb who cant find his way to vod after joining a lfm that said vod hard, be able to find way to quest alone, they will give up and free the spot for a worthwhile person to join that could actually contribute more than dieing in the spikes 10 times by accepting a raise dead in them after getting one shotted by a fireball.

    that or sometimes its just fun to mess with your friends by trying to find the most obscure quests you can and sharing and hoping they are in midair and get distracted and die.

    Ive had the opposite several groups so far have ended up passing me the star when I join.. First one was that stormcleave group who thought my helping the lost guy meant I wanted to lead.

    Others have looked at my bio with my alt list and said "oh your a real vet" then the ding of the star being placed on me.. I get grumbly about it but I figure its their way of saying we have no clue of the kind of trouble we are getting ourselves into

    I think id bust out laughing over mic if someone joined a group I set up and tried to take it over. THey would either laugh to or be offended and leave win win situation if you ask me
