S&B QA - Part 11

“Respect the Shield” Nikeyboy

Well folks, it seems we have gotten to part 11 of the S&B QA, I'm glad everyone has stuck around thus far in continuing to help the S&B community grow together, although we had a few hick ups in the past threads, let's continue to have this grow and be professional.

"I don't always play barbarian, but when i do, i prefer to use a shield. Slay happy my friends."

Hey why are you Fabby and Kan not on that list? You need to add the two of them and yourself QH!!!

I think the four of us have become the S&B mains now. Everyone else seems to have left ( looking at you Bumbly) and the three of you aren't even on the list.

Before I forget, part 11!!!!!!!! :P

yay...part 11!!

but honestly. i think we should remove that list. many of the people mentioned on there don't even have gear on their toons anymore. Some drop in every so often to say hi. That list almost makes this thread seem exclusive and might intimidate others from posting

I just want to say that this thread is open to everyone.

I know that there are a few regulars on this thread that talk back and forth, but I don't want anyone reading this for the first time to feel intimidated like they can't be part of the gang.

We are a relaxed group of S/B Enthusiasts. We don't want a stuffy place that excludes. This is also one of the most fun threads there is. I'd like everyone to participate and have fun with it too

:O I am finally on the list after so many parts!

On a side note, I got most of the core zero dps monk gears bought. Just need the gems now then I can start doing lots of group plays.

lol...well, there may be a few monks among us. I'm trying really hard to level my monk...but I find him a tad underpowered. So i'm thinking about starting another barb. It's the most fun character to play imo

I don't see any reason to delete the list, just maybe check to see who is active and remove those who aren't currently playing the game from the list. It's supposed to be a list of knowledgeable players to play with and get advice from, not a character doll to look at.

I still get adds here and there from people, and a few say from this thread. More than welcome to leave me up, I tend to gear them the "right way" and not uber glassy like me lol.

I'm still here have just been trying to get the monk to lvl 100 and not having much luck.

I'm having balance issues and trying to max my dps and ehp and not having much luck and just getting frustrated. I snagged a new main hand the other night but not sure if I like it and its not very good for the barb either. Has LS and LoH but no speed. Never did understand why S&B needed a weapon with speed on it but can feel a difference when not using it.

Also am going to head out to Florida on monday to pick up my grandfather and will be gone a few days so trying to get everything done here before the work week starts up again. its about a 12hr drive.
Tomorrow its oil change and tire rotation and general car cleanup and then its back to work on friday.

Looks like everyone that has posted so far makes up what's left of the S&B "group". It's nice to see RK and TC dropping in as you two don't really join in on our, sometimes stupid, conversations (I'm not the one usually responsible for that, I swear!) LOL

Just a suggestion on the list. Why don't we break it up into two parts. An honorary list for the people that don't really come here anymore (just to honor those that came before) and a list of active members. Just my 2 cents guys. :)

ohh that's long!! are you going to do that in 1 day by yourself? I presume that Sinafea will be at home taking care of the kids?

I'm fine with that too, whatever you guys want

@fabby,
So what do you think buddy? Seems like tom and RK like to keep it.
How about keep the list and break them into two like wannabee suggested?
Maybe as a shout out instead so it doesnt have the intimidating feeling of a gang?

ya, i like a shoutout to S/B legends like baller, nike and so on. BUt these guys don't play this game anymore. Probably only keep active players on the list.

I would define an active player as someone who has recently posted something in the S/B thread...even if it was just a silly comment or whatever

So if some of you guys on that list just browse the thread occasionally, please drop in and say hi so we know you're still relevant
