    I don't have a guild on Sarlona, and I dont really care about 'social' channels tbh. But I've been trying to PUG on all servers in order to estabilish myself in one. And so far, got more luck on Sarlona (went from level 6 to 11 trough creating and joining PUGs), perhaps because I am a rogue and I am always needed in those Elite bravery streak groups. I've playing much more on Sarlona because of the PUG activity here. So, keep the pug's on!

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.

    Dude your beating a dead horse. Sarlona's end-game has a good scene but leveling up pug style is EXTREMELY painful. The #1 reason why i will never TR again, that 3rd life was bad.

    Sarlona is the home of role-players, slow players, casual players who enjoy every bit of game. So, random PUGs there will definitely disappoint anyone with fast running zerging mindset. On the other hand getting in to a good channels is also not easy, obviously no good channel is going to pick a player who just stoned to 16 and those free starter items are his/her best items.

    I primarily run with guildies. If no guildies are on, i usually go and do a quest by myself. I really only join pugs if its a raid and i need a completion or if another quest is being run that i may want to do. Otherwise i will just go do some challenges.

    As far as the lfm's you see. That is not the cream of the crop. Most people run with well established grps and group via private channels.

    There are a few guilds who still are adamant on using lfm's for guild runs only which is just a waste space on the LFM board when they can use their guild list to invite or just by typing something in guild chat flr quick invite.

    Sarlona is alot better than what you see on the LFM's.

    Woo, wait a minute. This thread has opened my eyes. There is more to sarlona than bad pugs and slow mindsets? I am fascinated by this concept and must pug at once! To the rulette tables I go.

    WOW; Yep now I am inspired to go PUG more often in Sarlona! I had some bad experiences and started to solo more often, but it was encounters with some pretty arrogant sorts I looked at changing to Canninth but did not want to pay for that. Maybe the OP was in one of those groups?

    Well I will try Pugging again as soon as I can. Is turbine still having their staff party?
