A Word From A Server Friendly Monk

'Belzac has excellent AoE abilities

But he doesn't use them in daily areas so that other people can get their dailies done.

Good job Belzac'


Hello everyone, Belzac here as you can see by the posting avatar and I'm here posting mainly to express a bit of concern that I've got now that I've hit 90 (avatar isn't updated yet).

Now I've been visiting daily areas today which has been, admittedly, rather fun. Seriously kudos to Blizzard for making me want to do dailies again, but that being said. It becomes rather difficult to do my dailies (especially when they are killing quests) when every druid, mage, hunter etc etc etc is using their AoE abilities to tag every single mob that drops the quest items.

Now granted, I think it's funny to watch those who do AoE run around like idiots and occasionally die (either from pulling too much or getting punted off cliffs) but what I really want to do is get in, kill the mobs I need to, and get out. So please, from one friendly wyrmrest player to all the others, hold off on the AoE spells when you're doing dailies.

Thanks

That was meeeee! Funnily enough, I got that daily done in about 5 minutes, mainly by:

AoEing, then running around like an idiot and occasionally dying

Unfortunately when it's an option between hit one mob and then fly around for five minutes searching for another, or tag a whole crowd and blow them away then be done and gone in five minutes, I'll take the second every time. It also prevents me from fighting you for tags.

We can AoE too.

I figure karma is karma. Selfish idiots get remembered, and when I see them dying a few minutes later, they don't get a heal or a helpful bear. They get a wave, and then a druid who steals their mobs when they're dead.

Or I take their herbs over and over and over and over and over and over and over.

Or I get on my rogue and transfer another 6 mobs to the center of their AOE and vanish. Oops! Did you die?

There are many ways to smack a selfish jerk around. Feel free to add your own!

I don't see how it's selfish if we know we can handle large numbers of mobs and don't feel like flying around seeking one out for five minutes at a time because lots of people are doing the same thing. It's not like their spawn times are long.

I didn't say it was selfish, I just think that it helps everyone if there are less AoE's being spammed. Sure you're in and out in 5 minutes, but you're one AoE spamming class out of several, with more coming constantly as the day goes on.

Also I wasn't directing this post at one person or a few people, but at a large majority. No one has to you know, take what I've said here and put it into practice, but I think I generally have a right to vent and at least request that people take it easy so I and others like me, who don't spam AoE's can get our dailies done rather than sit there for 35-40 minutes waiting for a single spawn that the 5 minute carefree AoE spammers keep tapping like a hot single woman/man at a singles bar.

I take their leather over and over and over and over and over and over and over.


I can't take whole packs, for some reason I keep sticking with enhancement and it's pretty puny right now. Getting 4 goat steaks took me almost 45 mins yesterday. I did wind up getting a few bags full of free leather though. Is it frustrating? Yes, but it isn't all wasted time.

This non-AoE cow appreciates it but why handicap yourself? Very few, if any other players will share your sentiment and altruism so I say go ahead, AoE them along with the others who can.

I don’t play in a rush. I’m a careful player who likes to pick things off at my leisure. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had someone just run in and aggro the next mob I was after while they were spamming every AoE and cooldown available so they could get everything.

I understand that because of this, I’m going to get walked over by inconsiderate and rude players. I’ll suffer the consequences gladly. I can wait for the respawn or come back later when no one’s around or there are at least players who are polite enough to share space. I'm playing this game to enjoy it, not to beat some kind of invisible, meaningless record.

And I agree with Appols. If you're on the wrong side of karma, it bites.

I'd normally agree with you, but the funny thing is that I've come across more polite players than rude ones. Maybe I just have better luck or something xD

We're neither wolves nor lambs. We're people who happen to play the same video game. You're no more a wolf than my cat.

I envy you, I've had rotten luck so far.

If you see me AoE and pulling everything in sight, you can bet it was a lame missed key and any help saving my life would be greatly appreciated :)

This exactly for me too. This means I have yet again misjudged the reach of nether bomb.

Actually one of my cats believes itself to be a dog.. doesn't help that it's as big as one either. I've tried to explain to him but he won't listen! Now that they've banned species conversation therapy I don't know what to do. He's soooo rude!!

On another note thankfully (?) I haven't gotten to dailies yet, though I keep hearing terrible things. I'm afraid.

That is why I use Frost Bomb. Plus it's just really nice to WE nova the group, Frost Bomb, Fire Blast, then pick off the survivors with my own Nova and Bomb again.

Same here. I'm still getting used to the radius of Halo.
