  1. Grizabella added a post in a topic Keep lifeskilling on main or make alts?   

    I have most of my lifeskills on my main and that worked well for a while. But with the size of the map ever expanding, I have broken my alts up into a Logging team, a Farming team, and a Main/Alt Questing fighting team. That way the Farmers are always near the farms, the loggers are always near the trees etc.

  2. Grizabella added a post in a topic Building FS post patch   

    One thing that some have said is important, and which my experience seems to support is to have at least 3 items to switch between. So 0 to +7 on one Reblath piece, then +8 to +15 on another piece and from there on a third piece, preferably a green weapon. It seems that using one piece for more than 6 or 7 attempts tends to proc more than switching.

    What are you using? the Durable option is only on Green items. I have found that Reblath seems to proc easier now- cannot get above +15 where it used to get too +20 about half the time. But using a green weapon gets me from +15 to +20 on durable pretty consistently.

  4. Grizabella added a post in a topic For those who played over 5000 hours...   

    Nice assumption but wrong. 
    I am betting that most of us have careers or school but we AFK while we are there and jump on for whatever events we like with guildees in the evenings or on weekends.

    Could not have said that better. I play nice. But I don't expect anyone else to. I hope they do and I am not surprised when they don't.

    Betting that many folks are dumping DK to jump to Stryker.

  7. Grizabella added a post in a topic Please implement the penalty on guilds keep decs alive.   

    While I agree with the general statement that war decs should have a time limit on them beyond which there is a penalty, all of this can also be the result of poorly managed guilds.
    I have been in guilds where if you pulled crap like that, the GM would boot you and then PK the shit out of you to teach everyone a lesson regarding proper guild behavior. I have also been in guilds that were practically anarchy with no real leadership.

    Wow. Nice find. Not sure I love that you posted this where everyone can now see how easily accounts can be broken into, but maybe this will force some action on their part.

    You can get another by using the Tokens of Promise you used to use for rings and Necklaces in Calpheon. It takes 10 I believe. Nope- only 2.

  10. Grizabella added a post in a topic xentago joins equilibrium on his alt account and farms and reports himself   

    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.

  11. 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."

    Yes. you are correct. All of your words are golden wisdom that flow from the heavens and all of mine are shit. Lighten up already.

  14. 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.
