    Sheesh.... Its not like they are 5 minutes. It takes less than 3 minutes to run anywhere in the entire game.

    Try and get every quest in the game done in a PuG with terrible players who barely listen in less than an hour.

    Getting there isn't the issue. The buffs running out before you even need them is.

    I agree with longer durations for two reasons--

    1) Simple convenience. Running back and forth isn't fun.

    2) A one hour duration puts pressure on the group to hurry things along. Fine if you have things running like clockwork and want to go quickly. However, I can see lots of stress added to groups when some people want to take things slower and some members are pushing to finish because their XP buff is going to run out.

In those instances they normally are shorter than an hour and the buffs are nice but not needed and most likley if ya have the ability to get the buffs in the 1st place your running with guildies so everyone can go get em together. I'm excited to see what they are like don't get me wrong and we are getting close...but I've been in groups doin normal quest and raids where people are getting buffs and making us wait not cause they need them....but cause saying they are getting buffs is like a way to show they are cool I think...cause they got thier Ships and we don't. I mean do you really need to get buffs for a normal Shroud?
    Hahaha, like that recent All Lvl 20 Elite Abbot group where a few people from a high level guild on our server were leading it and announced several times that they had to go to their ship for buffs--and the raid still failed. There is no Goggle Buff. . .

    Anyway, Thank God i've yet to lead a raid where someone had to go get airship buffs--this would make me kick them from the group purely based on the fact that they think they need buffs to finish any current content.

    And to the OP

    I don't know. I really don't mind waiting....we have a infamous guildy who we wait on all the time. Only time time itself concerns me is if I'm farming XP and if I do that I won't need buffs so I'll just start the quest and everyone else who feels the need em can catch up..who knows by the time they get there I could be done. If I join a group an have to wait....oh well I do it....i go smoke...refill my drink and chuckle to myself that people are doin it when we are going in on normal. And for real if ya ever are in a group with Inthedark or any of his Alts he will be the last to enter...and we don't have buffs....im dreading to think what it will be like when we do.
