Officer of Chimera - Sarlona
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.
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
