I didn't. I'd do leves and log out for 2 days.
that was until I got that **** Wight leve two resets in a row, and lost both times because each pair of wights wouldn't leave the other pair it was next to. Now I just don't play.
Ever heard of asking for help? This is an MMO. Quitting cause you can't solo the whole thing is pretty childish.
Honestly, yes I did. Nobody at camp answered. Friendlist was empty, linkshells were empty.
Hmmm. Well... I am sorry that you are in such a sad state, but with the way things are it would be worthwhile finding a different shell... things would be a lot easier if you had friends around. There seems to be shells recruiting on every server. I know it isn't easy to find the right fit, but yeah, worth trying.
As for the wight leve I can do it pretty well regardless of pathing... but wasn't really able to until R22 or so. It was one of the first really challenging leves I ever did. (The bandit one was the other one)
I trioed these ones at R16 on 1 star with a R18 conjurer and an R17 LNC. It was difficult but we got er done. I am actually thankful that leves have different difficulties. Yeah, failing one sucks but it totally isn't the end of the world. And the game is a lot more fun with a little challenge added in.
About the people thing, I'm not really bothered. I knew there was very little chance that there was someone close enough to me to help me finish it in the short amount of time I had left after trying myself. I went in intending to solo it because I can manage to kill a group of 2, but not when the groups stand on top of each other.
What actually bothered me about it the most, was how unbalanced it was. It was just so significantly more difficult than every other r20 leve. I don't consider things like that a challenge, I considered it a broken encounter, maybe if only for me those 2 times. Its simply impossible to kill 4 wights solo at my class/rank. I like that leves have custom difficulty levels, but because they do, IMO every leve should be roughly the same difficulty. Or they should just create r15, 25, 35 etc leves. Its possible I just had horrible luck that out of the 6 pairs spawned, 4 of them were standing on top of each other, but it happened twice and it was enough to turn me off, at least until the next update. maybe its also that lancer's just a weak soloer, which may be the case, but then again thats poor balance.
the LS thing, I knew I had to find a new one but I was holing off until I was fully ready to commit to the game. Also I am 100% against joining via applying to random guild's websites, call me old fashioned but I like to join linkshells via meeting people in game, then deciding to join them, not the other way around.
eh, I wasn't really asking for help (not that you wern't helpful, or that its not appreciated), I was more commenting on the poor state of the game, and these 2 reasons why. Edited, Dec 31st 2010 2:09pm by KujaKoF Edited, Dec 31st 2010 2:12pm by KujaKoF
