There is always the choice to solo or group.
I tend to run solo and only group when its the only option to finish something or when its pvp and i am in the mood for leading a group or joining a group where i know people.
But mostly i run solo because i often have to go afk or quit midquest.
Well ok, often its also that i am to annoyed by noobs, no not newbs i mean noobs.
And from what i have seen in my years of mmo gaming this is how play most of us.
And honestly i dont see Iconics fit in there, mmo gamer are a longtime crowd.
We tend to play 2-3 years the same game and then change to the next.
With so much time invested Iconics are a dead end, especially when you consider all the grind and investment you have to do.
Gearing out the char, grinding epic dest. xp, Tomes, Bank/inventarspace.
Sure some will like them but i dont see them as really popular, make them TR able and they would be popular.
For me there doesnt even need to be a PL feat or any other bonus from a Iconic life.
Just let me TR into it and TR out of it, i dont even want the xp to 15 or any of the gear.
And from the comments here i am not alone with that wish, so it really remains to ask why dont we get that?
