A lot of people (Myself included) feel that this isnt true for a large handfull of quests. Theres quite a few there that scale in such a fashion that the quest is "unproportionally" more difficult with 2 people than just 1 person- Ie some are super easy to solo (to a laughable point), but as soon as you add a single extra person the quest can be a relatively nightmare (in comparison) to how it was on solo.Originally Posted by droid327
Again, not sure how much I agree with this. Id be pretty skeptical to believe that this would be the case. We "lose" (I hate thinking of it this way, btw) "10%!" (not really, but some want you to think this is the case) if someone dies. In my 3 years of playing this game the amount of times Ive ever heard someone actually complain about "losing 10%!!one!!" could literally be counted on a single hand- And I pug on a very regular basis. In my experiences people just arent that big of an ******. I feel if the exp bonus for a FULL party was in this range, the bickering would be so minimal that itd hardly be worth noting (Short of the DOOOOOOMsayers on the forums, but in game?)If you got a bonus for a full group, that'd be the same as getting a penalty for non-full groups, because everyone would come to "expect" the bonus. And that'd just lead to griping when someone drops out of a group before completion, or incentivize people NOT to start playing until they've filled the last slot...and if the group never actually reaches full size, if its taking forever and someone else gets impatient and drops out and then someone else and you never actually make it to the quest, that's not encouraging grouping
Of course mind you, on the flip side I have seen time and time again people ***** about and being unwilling to do a quest on anything but elite, And I must say I STRONGLY hate this trend. But its a bit more "understandable" when you have to do a series of quests to build this streak back up and the bonus is 50% of the base, not a hypothetical 2-10%.
But what do I know, im just a paladin with a base int of 8
