  1. Grizabella added a post in a topic HELP! Certain guild is being hunted down to a disgusting degree   

    You won't like hearing this anymore than I will like saying it, but this is a "git gud" situation. nothing you describe above is illegal or even particularly evil. All of the tactics are smart and legal. Guild A got out played but a former member and Guild  C took on a risk either willingly or unknowingly (did Guild A let Guild C know what was going on?).
    Options at this point are:
    1. Git Gud and punish Guild B
    2. Sue for peace
    3. Stop whining and lettting Guild B know how much this is bothering you, er them, and hope they get bored and stop.

  2. Grizabella added a post in a topic killed while horse training   

    No. It is rare because most of us train in safe zones. I have never been PK'd while training. 
    And the analogy to jogging is flawed since this game has PVP zones. Try "I went jogging in bewteen the trenches during WWI and I cannot believe I got shot." or "I was in Korea and I had to jog so I went jogging in the DMZ and I am outraged that I was shot at and then arrested."

  5. Grizabella added a post in a topic Dande vs Ulti Awaken weapon   

    Its actually simpler than that. Get what you can afford, when you can afford it, and fight what you enjoy killing or trying to kill. 
    That about covers it.

    If this were Vegas, they would shut this game down for fraud. It's like betting on a number on a roulette wheel of unknown size and with an unknown number of possible outcomes.

    I use Calpheon and have the Pumpkin Skeleton Masks kill me. You re-spawn at Town and it is a 2 sec walk to three of them.

    And you may wish to have really low level ALT to use to de-level gear for building FS's. I have a level 7 Sorc for this.

    Laments that people are rude now by rudely accusing the other server of being the cause.

    How many times does this have to come up? I get that it is rare and that it is annoying when it happens, but can we all just THINK for a second?
    "My car was only stolen once when I left the keys in it downtown a few years ago, but in the last couple of weeks I have had two cars stolen and I am pissed off."
    "Um, maybe don't leave the keys in it?"

  12. Grizabella added a post in a topic Stop the griefers!   

    Guilds can do this now. and yet they aren't. The reason is the system we have does not reward PKers and the Karma hit is pretty heavy so they deem it not worth their time. They could even use ALTS that stay red all the time parked at Sausans to swoop in and massacre people.
    Actions have consequences- if you flag, you pay a penalty. If you keep Karma Bombing you should also.
    My suggestion would in no way make guild fan out and kill everyone since the only change would be to repeated Karma Bombers.  Bomber comes back more than twice- he pays a penalty also. So if both sides pay a penalty and nothing is really gained, it seems like it would be a deterrent.
    And I think you will find that I am looking at both sides of the coin. Why do people who disagree with other people always accuse the other side of only looking at one side of the coin? How is analyzing the effects on both the grinder and the bomber not looking at both sides? 
    And to be clear, I don't wish to propose that my idea is THE solution. Only to get people thinking and discussing what the solution could be. It's not simple because without looking at both sides you run the risk of over correcting and destroying a good portion of the player base's enjoyment.

  13. Grizabella added a post in a topic Ive been kicked out of my spot   

    Maybe a group of like minded players could level up some alts to run red all the time. Call this informal group of Alts Karma Griefer Busters (KGB). There are enough players that like killing other players that surely a party or 2 could be formed very quickly.
    You are grinding and you kill someone and they keep coming back. Instead of you going full on negative karma you post in chat "KGB (3)" You are asking for the KGB's help and you are indicating that the griefer has returned 3 times. They show up and wipe the map with him for fun.
    I mean asking for the KGB's help has become the norm lately, right?

  14. Grizabella added a post in a topic Ranger   

    Ranger for life. But if you actually play the class and then level other classes you will be tempted to switch. I suggest that if you have not played Ranger you do so and see if you have the opposite reaction- i.e no way am I switching to this pot eating under powered class.
    I have a level 57 Ranger and a level 56 DK. Ranger is in all TRI gear. DK in DUO and only a +13 Awakening. DK wipes mobs the Ranger takes time to kill, And the DK never needs pots. I know other Rangers have similar stories with other classes- have heard Witch and Sorc in particular.

    First time you flag on someone was YOUR choice- you incur the penalty
    He or she comes back, perhaps because he/she feels they could have beaten you or weren't paying attention when you flagged or whatever. You flag again and they lose. You incur the penalty.
    He or she comes back- this is now their choice. They are choosing to die. If a low level keeps rushing to attack a high level mob, they incur the loss of XP every time they do it and it is their own stupidity that is causing the issue. They could have brought friends or grouped up or they could learn the lesson and stop rushing in. The second time they come back either have no penalty or make the penalty on them.
