So, I was playing alone with a side toon and saw this ToD LFM led by a rogue. It had a very odd description and it stroke me as a new player leading the raid. A short myddo on the guy revealed 10% fortification.
Since myddo isnt exactly updated - half my toons have more than one year of oblivion - I sent a tell to confirm.
The rogue revealed that infact he had 10% fortification, but that his toon did a lot of damage.
Obvioulsy, I then proceeded to explain how fortification worked and why it wasnt 'acceptable' to walk around without it.
The rogue didnt accept the advise as friendly and the conversation didnt go that well, ending up on the rogue not convinced that HF was a needed thing.
So, I am assuming here that the fact that I was a Stranger who didnt speak his language somehow struck him as a non reliable person. Whatever is the reason why the person did not like me, I really believe that a friend could have explained better and he could have bought the HF thing.
So, this is a plea for the cannith community, the guilds mostly, to instruct its members of the important aspects of the game. While I am giving just one example of "un-education", I know for a fact that this server has a great number of players from large guilds running around clueless of how fortification works.
So, as the title says, talk to your friends about heavy fortification. Those stubborn fellas, they surely will be more inclined to hear advise from their friends than from a stranger.
Thanks for reading. Will thank you for acting.
