I hope that isnt in it, that stuff is so cheap, hell i can not stand people running in and start fight the monster im fighting, i didn ask for help so please dont give it, i enjoy being challenged!
^ This many times over. The moment I saw some attack a mob I was going for, I back off right away, simply because it annoys the hell out of me when someone joins in on my fights when I can handle it just fine. I find it will be rare to have one of those moments when you are soloing a strong mob who has you against the ropes to suddenly turn it around(or get your *** handed to you.) Also during beta, I had people higher lvl then me following me thinking they are helping me with kills when they were just annoying the crap out of me. Eventually I log out out of annoyance.
Im sorry but this is a MMO and many people like to help others. If you want to be left alone thats what RPGs are for. SE made the game so people can help eachother and still get some credit. Them helping dosent hurt ur exp any. As a healer I like helping random people if I see there health alittle low. Are you telling me that I should just keep walking because some people have a problem with help?
On the flip side if im on a DPS class and I need to do a quest and I notice others aswell I will join in and help kill things with them thus making it faster for all of us.
There is helping, and there is Trolling. Notice when I said they were a higher lvl than me, higher lvl meaning they will most likely do more damage than me, which would in-turn reduce my chances of claiming any credit for the kill. It's also not just credit for exp/gil/items, it's also credit for quests, hunting log, etc. People who have "tried" to so-called assist me, would in turn increase the time it took for me to complete a simple task, because they would do too much and forfeit any chance on me taking credit. Not including things like FATE and such because I know how those are meant for teamwork.
It's nice getting rated down simply for expressing how I feel about it by agreeing with what someone else said, and that he even got rated down shortly after I rated him up.
We aren't bashing the game, we are bashing the players that make the game a chore or take away from the challenge if there is a challenge.
EDIT::Since you added it after I posted, I didn't leave, I back off after seeing them attack, if I felt they needed help, I would. Edited, Jul 25th 2013 5:58pm by Demonadrastos
