    Until I can get my +10/+20% xp for doing a quest below level, that -10% for dying is a loss

    It's a good deal, you do nothing and get xp.
    Just don't cost ME any xp in the process.

    Yes, I know that the crowd this is aimed at, doesn't read this. I don't care.
    This is a good place to vent.

    Peace and love to you all.
    Hm.. don't you think posting "Don't die" in your LFM
    makes people want to die just to throw
    it back in your face? I think so...

    Same thing when you post "know the quest"
    you get people who don't know it at all
    Laughing at you G.

    What needs to be done is to move the -10% from the whole party to the one who dies only. Why should the rest suffer for the mistake of one person? This rule is counterproductive towards building a healthy pugging scene and to grouping in general, and only creates conflict and barriers between players.

    I was recently in PUG like this. Leader gave us a 5 min speech about not dying.

    agreed, couple this with dungeon scaling and theres little reason to actually group in most of the games content unless you're feeling sociable, bored, or the content demands it.

    I blow up 2 trap boxes in haywire foundry (von3) last night. You know in the hidden shrine near the end. I did the first one. Bang! Crit fail, checked my gear wearing right stuff (check) and my buffs (check) and did the second one - bang crit fail.

    Sure sometimes (actually most of the time) people die from stupid avoidable things, but it's always good to remember that everyone from time to time can roll a 1 (5% chance)

    When I lead group (you see this about one time a year and only when players have less total brain than me, I am very dumb) I say I have just one rule, definately no dying, and definately definately no dying stupidly or I screen shot and name and shame on forums for give everyone good laugh. This is working for me well and I invite you to try it, it's good!

    Don't worry you will have good groups soon and then with how luck is probably you will be the one dying when they say not to. LOL! Good luck and good loots.

    I do appreciate that the OP was trying to help others by allowing them to get some easy XP though, that's really kind of you.

    I'd be absolutely mortified if I got myself killed in a situation like that where someone with more experience was helping me out...which is why I never join the LFMs that say "don't die" because I really do not want to get someone upset if I goof.

    There is no crit fail on a 1 for traps.
    You must have blown the DC by 5 or more. (as per personal experience and ddowiki)
    Sure people roll 1s, but unless it is a death effect w/o a deathblock item or the spell, then it is a nonissue.

    I guess you could roll a series of 1s against dmg magic (pit fiend meteor swarm and DBF come to mind back when cap was 16), but this would be really rare)

    Thats what the noobs say, this what a zerger says:



    Peace is a lie. There is only passion.
    Through passion, I gain strength.
    Through strength, I gain power.
    Through power, I gain victory.
    Through victory, my chains are broken.
    The Force shall free me.

    Well, with the stupid revamp of the xp system, the most efficient way to level a tr toon is to do content one level below the toons level. So in my case, I have a super tweeked tr + a few hundred completions worth of experience with the quests I'm doing + below level content. The only way I'm going to die is a very brutal lag spike or afk due to rl emergency (or a stupid pug getting DA to red when I'm fighting a dangerous named mob, had a close one there once... ).
