I see it more often in the general chat, warnings about relic gangsters. Not sure if there is actually anything to do, besides only invite friends or guilds to relic.

Report button? What? They are not doing anything wrong besides breaking a promise to your group. That isn't against any rules. The only thing you can do is name, shame & shun.

You can join a big active guild and do your scrolls for free with your guildies and hope that when they have scrolls they will keep a spot for you.

At least thats what i do. Sometimes i have 30 scrolls and the others have few or none and sometimes i have none and they have a lot.

I think on the long run things turn out pretty even.

Take turns...One scroll per turn... You will be screwed mostly by just one scroll... Bit slower, but relics are slow AF anyway and those 3 seconds to change leader make almost no difference...

I remember doing them like this in the early days. Sad that relic scammers are on their way back round again.

Dont wanna get scammed? Do them alone, ive been doing that for a long time...  The memo you get from party scrolls are not really worth the time in most cases, unless you are REALLY poor or have nothing else to do....

Or perhaps 4 of you flag and kill the scammer until you have had your fill.

I think I have been in a group where this happened twice. Methods to avoid exist, but they make the damn thing take forever:

1. Rotate 1 scroll at a time

2. Rotate 5 scrolls then pass.

If the animations were not so long and they would just make an option for whoever activates the scroll to have all 3 bosses spawn at once, these tactics might be better,

I try to always go last when I organize the group.

Fill the party with as many of your friends or guildmates that have the needed number of scrolls as you can, make randoms go first.

The 1 scroll rotation sounds nice, though.

Why don't you create a discord for relic scammer reports and publicise it here/reddit etc?

Can't post players name on here or Reddit, part of the ToS. Otherwise there would be a thread already.

This is the policy of the guild im in, heck because so much people in the guild fishes, we started a rule that only 1 or 2 people are allowed to host. If everyone decides to use all theirs, we would be doing scrolls all day for week.

Sadly that doesnt work with the single players.

Devs/mods cannot control what you post about players on reddit or discord, surely.

I run relics with 2 others consistently.

We will invite 2 randoms for the last 2 spots,  but we make them use their scrolls first. If they refuse or give us a hard time then we kick them.

Sometimes one of us will go first so they can trust us, then they go. Then our other 2 guys finish it out.

But we don't ever let the 2 randoms go last.

I didnt say discord? And yes they can on Reddit, a certain guild from Uno didn't like their name showing up on the Uno News threads and complained about it. Low and behold Uno News had to stop because of it. If one person who ends up on a thread complains their name is there the entire thread would be deleted, something that has also happened on Reddit.

Some good replies here.

Though honestly, if i go to do relics and there are people there already.  I'll ask the if they want to mooch off me while they wait for their group to form.  It's zero matter to me if they get free stuff.  If they ask me to join them instead, and I'm not in a hurry, I'll do that.  I would take zero insult if they asked me to go first.

Exactly the same for us. If we have only 2 or 3 people and there's a couple randoms there, we'll ask them to join us because we usually do up to 30-60 at a time and it really doesn't take away from us to help a random player, especially if they're guildless.

I do what I do.  I don't really see it as nice.  I mean, I used to be the type to gank a raid while they're on a boss and lol about it on forums.  Sometimes you grow up and see you've got a lot of red in your ledger, as it were.
