The grind nature of Mabar makes the distribution of ritual items when in group that much more annoying. I discovered quickly that when I'm pugging in a group that I get almost no drops whatsoever, despite how much stuff I'm killing. However, when I solo on my cleric and am turning undead everything and mobs are dying around me, the items pile up fast. So that was great to find out, because I was almost ready to bag the whole thing.
Now my problem is when a friend logs on and wants to group with me and run Mabar. Because, my friend is a barbarian who can't kill anything fast in Mabar, constantly needs healing, etc. And with the group distribution set up, it seems that more than half of the drops go to him. So, instead of having a pile of cursed fingerbones, I have almost nothing to show for my effort. And I'm not heartless enough to tell him that I need to solo the stuff because he's not contributing enough and I'm wasting my time grinding because I'm not getting enough drops. SO, I'll have to start setting myself to anonymous I guess so he won't know I'm online. (At least, I hope that works, as I've never actually used the anonymous setting before.)
