Why is it that players seem retarded to multi-tasking. I come from FFXI before the WoW days, they seem to freak out I can tank and main heal and pull at the same time. I left that game 2009 when I got engaged to a guy I met on it in real life. I ran a endgame linkshell from 2003 and up. I basically had to train and teach how to dps with summoner and heal and solo. Also how to solo HNM if they have to deal with a wipe.

I am having to deal with these white mages of what are you doing. You are a DPS why are you even healing. I am use to dealing with WHM that like to heal last second. They do this on this and seem shocked I will heal a tank if his health is at 50%. I will basically take over healing and won't let them do it if I see they are the type I had to deal with in FFXI. I do not like wiping when the battle is easy and I can just heal the raid.

I came to this version because I got tired of dealing with ****** MMO's. I was scared the endgame would be this way in Beta because of the automatic skills. It was what stops retards from getting to endgame without using skills. They could level in 3 days in XI also if they knew how. It's not magic its only that you do not have to play and learn how to play anymore. This endgame looks like its turning into DC Universe Online. They rushed through almost all content without learning. Do not have the patients to try to work together and just get through content.

Only problem I have with this game is I cannot enter dungeons alone. They pretty much made Summoner OP for the players that come from the old MMO. No more having to run across a zone to solo something. I can sit right their and control everything even pop ups and group them together. It's like heaven because you can basically plan everything you do. I would love to not deal with these players that seem to not know how to handle you playing and watching your surrounding at the same time.

I am leveling WHM now and I also notice most Arc and SMN do not know how to use the role. I saw a level 25 struggle using a Topaz Carbuncle when it can just use Obey and gather all the links and group kill. I notice also SCH do not realize it works like puppetmaster that you have to keep pressing what you want to control the healer pet.

Actually, you don't have to command the fairy (healer pet) at all. You just have to keep the fairy in range, their auto-actions are short ranged. Most people used to playing WHm are used to staying as far away as possible.

I know, I am a control freak when it comes to pets. I like to control what they do with what I am doing. If you set the Fairy right she can solo heal until a boss.

I have a compulsion to mention it because it because it's a pet peeve of mine:

ARC = Archer

ACN = Arcanist

The pet command "Place" is excellent for this. I usually set Eos up near the tank to keep her in range and so the mobs don't run far if she grabs hate.

In my mind they are labeled only as bard. My bad when it comes to that. I am still shocked at how many roles they have to level. If you want bard for full support you got 6 jobs. I am making sure to make it my last role to do. It's going to take me a few months to get it perfect with practicing. One thing I miss about the old game I had little test subjects for roles. My mom and friends are not on the game to be them. I wish they would change dungeons where we can walk in them alone. I need to be able to test things to see what works even if it kills me 100 times. Is how I finely got people to see Summoner as damage dealers and good at solo in 2003. Had to take summoners and beastmasters to do Tiamat. One of the players put it online and it changed a lot of things.

Since at least a few people appear to disagree with me, can someone point out the problem with this approach?

I'm not trying to be snarky or combative, I genuinely want to know if I'm doing something wrong so I can make myself a better player.

Nope your advice was perfect. Place is invaluable.

Fixed it for you. :)
