    Default Upsides of beeing on Wayfinder

    Assuming that we all already know about the downsides of being on Wayfinder (from A like AH, where nothing useful might be found to Z like Zonixx´s guild, we miss a high level guild on the server!). Assuming there are upsides as well - which upsides do you know?

    My list is short, but I really like Wayfinder for this:
    + Not too overcrowded.
    + Less lag.
    + No problems to enter server.
    + No (or significantly less) spam bots (trades, requests to join groups, guilds, etc.).
    + More familiarity with other high-up players. It is easier to keep track of them and their progess throughout DDO.

    The only upside that comes to mind is that there is a whole bunch of really nice, friendly players on Wayfinder.

    Or at least that was the case while I was still actively playing on that server before I decided to start over on Orien.

    I hope Wayfinder has picked up a bit over the past couple of months and those who are still there have fun and are able to quest a lot, also the new MotU content.

    If not then it's a shame and Turbine should allow folks to transfer out of Wayfinder as asked for by so many in the past including myself.

    Yes, that´s true, at least for my guild. Might as well have to do with the fact that there are no guilds above Lv. 70 and ony a hand full of guilds above lv. 50 anyway. I do not know much about the guild mechanics and the code used by ddo. But it seems the guild and guild ammenities data tables from Wayfinder are far less bonked and borked as those from, lets say, Thellanis.

    Hopefully this will stay that way for a long time to come.

    The upsides:
    - no elitism: most people will play with anyone available (mostly out of necessity), even if a character is not well built. No one bashing drow. You can experiment with various multiclass builds without guilt.
    - guilds are friendly, probably due to the small number of players.
    - no one cares about elite streak, making it easier to find people for normal and hard runs.

    Personally, I like the fact that the AH is not a shopping mall of artifacts. Last I checked, there were about 20 rings on the AH, each less useful than the next. What that means is that treasure you find in chests is more valuable. Treasure becomes a worthy goal, which brings this game closer to original D&D.

    the wayfinder server is amazing no over zealous jerks no lag you get to finish a series of quest without losing connection to the server and i love being able to go to a new map and not hve to wait ten minutes for the world to load

    Never seen an unfriendly DDO-Player. Not in the "European"-Server (before the "Free to Play"-c**p starts), and never on the "Wayfinder"-Server. I dont know whats going on, on other Servers. But i think, DDO-Player are ever-friendly.


    everyone who plays "StarWars: The Old Republic" or "World of Warcraft" before knows exactly what i mean.
    For the others -

    Zitat aus einem anderen Spiel:
    "Ey da kommt der mit seinem Overgear um die ecke und CC´t mir den purple weg, den ich grade getanked habe als mein offi schon die nächste Crowd ankitet. Hab ich dem ermsa getellt das er ein kacknoob is und nur weil er n scheiß lucker is so geil rüber kommt. So ne bratze alter! Dem hau ich nie wieder die Stami mitm S-Apple auf max-stat wenn der weiter so rumruled"
    - Zitat ende.

    I have to admit that when I get fed up with lag on other servers, I wander over to Wayfinder.

    Of course, I more or less wander away as I never see *anyone.* Walking through the Harbor makes me feel everyone is hiding in the windows staring out at me.

    I just feel like I do not belong there.

    ...being only able to speak English.

    Yeah, that too, but I know the quests well enough that generally I just play deaf and people don't seem to mind a lack of conversation.

    ... except when you kill the portal keeper (Demonweb raid) where someone told in voice chat 50x not to kill them.
