Topics I've Started

Seeking clarification

27 November 2012 - 03:49 PM

I am hoping that someone may be able to help me in regard to the FotM dungeon.

As i'm sure all of you have realised from playing it if one of your party members or yourself are unfortunate enough to get DC'd or 'lag out' there is no way of getting back to full party strength without having to restart your progree on the scale selected.

My main question is as follows : Is this a bug? Should we expect a fix anytime soon? Or is this just and  extremely poorly thought out game mechanic?

At the moment i can see this casuing me much of a problem as each fractal only takes 10-15 minutes at my current scale. I do however see this developing into an issue when the difficulty and thus time for completion increases. The way i see it DC's are something you just cant help, sometimes they happen, even to the best of us! There is no way of checking your party ping to see who is the most likely to disconnect meaning that once in a while you are inevetably going to come across a few party members who disconnect.

I do however not believe that this has improved the game in the slightest, in fact, it has made the running of Fotm more like a lottery, running in hope that you will all get to the end without a DC kinda ruins the whole feel of it for me.

Feel free to express your opinions whatever they may be, and all you 'Elites' can shoot me down if you wish, but i wont listen :)

Fractals of the mists groups

23 November 2012 - 02:11 PM

Further to the november release i noticed a comment on the patch notes that said they had fixed the issue of people being kicked from the final boss in dungeons to allow for guild members to join.

I myself wholehartedly agree with this as i myself have been kicked at the end of a dungeon meaning i do not get my entitled rewards, i did not however think that they would fix this by not allowing players to join the run other than at the beginning.

Take yesterday for example, i gathered a party, entered FotM and completed 2 of the fractals with ease. The 3rd however did take a little more time and the impatience of some of the group began to show.After finally reaching the 4th fractal 2 of the group decided that they were going to up and leave.

The fact that i could not go back to the lab, LA or even ask my guild members to join is beyond a joke. I completely understand that sometimes things take longer than expected and people have to leave from time to time but the fact that replacements can no longer be found is just plain daft.

So now instead of being able to go find another party member to help you complete the rest of the run (which was a ball ache in its self), the only options now are either continue with reduced numbers in the party usually to no avail or all leave to lions arch and have to start back at the first fractal on the played scale.

I'm sure i am not the only one who is infuriated by this.

Nourishment buffs help!

21 November 2012 - 12:07 PM

I am trying to maximise what i can run on m warrior and i have seen various people running around with 3 different types of 'blue' nourishment.

I am aware of pretty much all food buffs, and also the utility ones that have the spanner icon.

The only one that i am struggling to find is a 'shield' symbol nourishment, i have seen a few people running around with these. I am meaning the buffs that show up in the same place as signet/banners/food buffs.

Any help on this, once again, would be much appreciated.
