In Topic: PUGs are Bad, Guildies are Great

I think all too many adultlike players think everyone is an adult playing these things when mostly it's children and those with a "Lot" of free time. The adults because they don't have a lot of free time want "conformity", "organization", "flawless outcomes". Just ain't gonna happen very often in the "real world of things". Best get used to playing the the real world of "children/kids" cause that's what you're going to face most of the time. You ain't the "Boss" no more like you might be in the real world, you're in the land of Oz! ;)

See, though, I don't have to worry about it too much. My guild hasn't failed a dungeon in months, in fact, we beat Arah path four last night with two guardians, an ele, an engineer, and a mesmer - an odd mix for a boss that requires heavy dps. We still beat it, though, because we were communicating with each other and adapting our strategies.

God bless those that play with pugs often, it must be infuriating. All is well in the land of Guildruns!

I run dungeons and fractals with guildies when possible due to the fact that I have more fun in general while playing with friends. But I cannot stand having an uncooperative pug tag along on these guild runs. Most of the time they don't listen to common knowledge, they're too headstrong, and they've got one hundred different ways to do the next boss that are all better than your own.

It gets old, honestly. The door does indeed swing both ways, though. I can join in on another guild's run as a pug and get treated pretty poorly. I got into an argument with these goofballs after wiping three times in the Hodgins graveling burrow room. They absolutely refused to take out the breeder as soon as he popped out of his burrow. I was guarding center with my hammer guardian and doing a spot-on job, I'd like to add. (I never let anything touch Hodgins and I was the last to go down on every wipe.) On the fourth wipe, I was booted from the party. They continued to wipe because the breeder got loose and wrecked them all on the left side of the room.

Sometimes people just need to listen to common sense. No one's trying to rule your gameplay experience, but dungeons are there for cooperative play. You need to learn to listen when people are trying to help you, not shut out any and all advice just because your way is supposedly better.

In Topic: If you could choose a Guild Hall design, what would it be?

It's been said a few times already, but I'd like something akin to a mead hall.

I think the one from the animated "Beowulf" nailed it.

Call me unoriginal for not mix-and-matching armor if you wish, but I'm just too big a fan of the stag set to care. :|

Just finished the look today. Not quite sure if I'm finished, but I'm digging it for now.
