Why do you grind solo next to other players?

6 posts in this topic

Posted

I'm on Uno server and when I hit lvl 19 and started to grind on scarecrows I asked people around me if they wanted to join party, 95% of them said no, but continued to solo grind right next to me.

There is a huge EXP boost for joining group, you get 250% bonus XP in a group of 5, if 2 people were AFK it would still be faster than soloing. Even if you're just there for 5 or 10 minutes it is still worth it.

Is it just tendencies from other MMOs where you get punished by splitting up the XP in a group?

People tend to distrust strangers. Even in games this subconsious bias against outsiders is seen. That being said, UNO is kind of a dead server anyway. Hopped into Edan, w.in 1 hr of gameplay got invited to a random guild, messed around with randoms, had a blast. Its a game people need to yolo more in it tbh.

Apparently if you're a Wiz/witch you'll get accepted into groups. Go figure...

AFAIK, I believe that it is 50% for each player after 2.

It's not that each kill merits 250% XP...

It is that every player making a kill gets 50% for himself and 50% for his partners.

So, it is faster in the sense that each payer can spread out and become much more effective.

If the group travels together, killing the same stuff, it's inefficient.

But if every spreads out, that 50% reduction is turned into a effective mechanic.

Perhaps others can confirm.

You're right but the range is pretty big so if the group is spread out and each doing their own thing, you're getting a big boost. It doesn't make sense to kill the same stuff unless you're AoEing 10+ mobs at a time which can easily be done with say a Valkyrie that can cast aggro spells while running.
