    EDIT: I don't agree with Sebastian btw BUT this is an International game!
    Sure I am well aware its gaming time for someone that it is an international game, I hope that most parents tell kids that play online games NOT to give away your address or phone number to strangers you meet online. Especially in the present social media networks available. My son is 9 and is well aware of what we approve of and that he has no privacy when it comes to useing anyone of the cumputers in the house. I definately am offended at the conotation that I had any bad intentions other than to give away an item or plat. That I in any way shape or form intended to do anything other than give things away is upsetting to me, and I will no longer do it considering the feedback I have gotten over this post.

    Elements I dont believe people were responding to y our post in such a way. We were responding to the one dude who claimed you got no takers because of Americans and fear. Which on Sarlona which has an international population some of us found as a strange stance. I think you would have better luck in the harbor or marketplace because many new players end up on snowy korthos so the takers you didnt get on Korthos were probably people who have already.

    I really think posts got crossed but the trust thing was not aimed at you it was just a derail gone bad. I hope you continue to try to help new players you were doing it in a respectful way as well.

    Giving them loots is just wrong.. it makes them trusting, and gullible. It will lead to them getting cheated out of raid loot later in life.

    Better to tell them that you will give them a pony if they follow you., then take them to the basement of the Wayward Lobster and whamo; soul stone. Follow up by mocking them for not having HP or fort.. maybe a few other things if you have the energy. This will prepare them well for their first raiding experience.

    really... its just for the best

    Being on korthos doesnt always mean wet behind the ears newbie. Perhaps youre running into people refusing it because they dont need it.
    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.

    Its an internet forum. You should have known this is exactly where it would go

    When I first started someone gave me some +3 leather armor. I thought they were awesome. A +3 tome I wouldnt have even known what to do. But probably traded it for a heap of things I could use.

    Besides, with the server downtime, everyone is bored, grouchy and talking about anything and everything
