    This. I havent really joined many LFM's in about 2 years. Ever since I joined my guild, I've been happy. Most of the time we try and group up. If not, I also enjoy soloing. Only reason for me to join a pug is to run a shroud or some other raid when the guild hasnt scheduled it and the timer can go away by the time the guild does run it. (ingredients only, guild runs mostly end on completion) and for explorer areas. (Despite what the original post said, the reason people run a lot of explorers in sarlona is well, because the xp in there is quite good. And sometimes dungeon zerging gets boring, and our toons need the fresh air)

    Uhm. With Cannith and Sarlona as my primary servers, and playing both at all hours of the day, I can assure you that Sarlona pugs tend to run more content for BB than Cannith pugs, on a per-percent of LFMs basis. Of course, Cannith is a larger population server- or at least, used to be, I couldn't possibly verify that now- and every server has their low activity spots.
    Playing the day after the fourth probably wasn't your best bet, either.

    This is it, first time to do it I think, here we go...

    *facepalm*

    I just love all the people that come to the forums crabbing "there's no one posting decent lfms!" but won't post one themselves.

    My guildies generally refuse to pug. I don't get it, but fine. Raids excluded. When I DO pug, it will almost always be for a trapper... especially with the borked elite traps atm. Don't pug healers, don't pug casters, don't pug dps. If you're one of those, you won't be needed. Trappers=exp bonus even with a 10-percent death bonus loss (I had to be careful there to avoid the "it's a bonus" police).

    If I weren't so lazy, I would go to the Cannith Forum to make a "Really, Cannith?" thread telling them to stop their 3lit3 play3rs lik3 th3 Th3ThirdFall3n from 3xporting walls of t3xt to Salrona.

    Salrona is already special enough, we've reached our special quota. If your cup floweth over on Cannith, please dump your refuse in Khyber. Nobody likes them anyways.

I do play other MMO's but nothing really suites my fancy the way DDO does.

    In any case recently I tried the Sarlona server for sh*ts and giggles; figured I'd make a wizzie, stone him and cap him out with relative ease, then see what's up with the raid/end game scene out there.

    This all went off with out a hitch(I have yet to cap the toon, but it's in the process), the only problem is, that everytime I open the LFM I find myself repeatedly wishing for something to say to all these people who post up on it.

    Groups of people running quests way under their level asking for heals or DPS or something of the sort. Hardly any farming runs of good xp/min quests, a bucket load of wilderness farming runs(slayer/rare/ex).

    I mean come on, I'll forgive you for Orchard, the Minos is probably the only reason to ever run slayers on any wild area, but it's everywhere!
    It's like the server is full of people who would prefer to run content 5 levels under them than be presented with the challenge of running quests at level. And I don't even know what to think of people who max out slayers lol, it's like they keep themselves oblivious to the beautiful experience to be gained from certain places.

    I mean you can LITERALLY gain 100k from certain quests(Sane Asylum) through farming, MORE if the quest is filled with good optionals and you've kept a streak up(VoN3).

    But REALLY, REALLY, Sarlona? Do you really have nothing more to offer a bored player than people who probably have more trouble making it alive on the way TO the quest than they would piking at the start of it? And who knows, judging by what I've seen, even THAT might be a little hard for them lol.

    Anyway, I was just wondering, is there even a solid group of farmers out there on Sarlona? A nice group of people to run with regardless of the general lack of motivation im getting time after time by looking into the LFM tabs?
    Or should I just give up hope, and go off to the next server to try my luck?

    Just wondering, I mean this server(by the look of the amount of forum threads) looks to be fairly sizable, but if everyone here is fine with posting such sad things on their lfms... I suppose I should just stop there.

    I was expecting a shroud thread.

    Instead I got an op who's afraid to start his own lfm.

    Not sure what's worse.

    LFM's are hard. That's probably why we don't use them on Sarlona.

    I made a new monk on Sarlona and noticed that there weren't many LFM's up. I put one up of my own and had a couple people join and had fun times. If you're so awesome and uberz, put up an LFM and lead people through a quest.

    Yeah, LFMs are just scary. We join guilds instead.

    And that wall of text was really scary too.

    Here's what I've been doing, when no one in my guild/static group is in level range, not being part of any of those fancy-pants tr-focused channels, and what I suggest you do: just put your own bravery/farming lfms up. Change the part of the server that just does slayers by example.

    It kind of surprised me, but I tended to get a much greater number of competent people than fivefivefive-ish idiots like that. And even some of the more inexperienced people were fun to run with and learned fast.
