Lord of the rings online
NaktiesKarys did all Entwood dailies he could, then turned in some Helmingas task items (1 teleport to Aldburg) for Legendary item experience. Talked to kinnies, refused all Instance runs. People wonder about it, but I do have my own experience. I read forums how on-level Uruks just one shot players and I do not want to be defeated by every single enemy.
Vytautaz turned in last task items in Angmar, then did some quests in Bree. He is still some 70.000 xp short from level 49 and would hardly make it before festival ends.
Age of Conan
My Priestess continued to adventure, killing stuff, accepting all available quests and finally reaching lvl.18. However, I received a quest to kill “Ceremonial Master”. And The Bad Luck began.
First, one player killed my monster. Had to wait. Monster spawned, I attacked…was killed. Resurrection, running, fighting my way. Killing all guards to reach lvl.18. Reached. Some player arrived, killed my monster. More players came, everyone for my monster. Level 13 came, ran and was killed. Then some lvl.19 killed monster easily. More players came, everyone for the same monster. Before they gathered – I screamed in New player chat and Guild chat for help. No one answered.
I was in despair. I had quest, I was on-level and still the fight was same for lvl.1 or level 8 or level 18. Then some player asked if I was for that monster and I honestly told I did not know. If I stand, monster won’t suicide. If I fight, I will be killed. While I was thinking, some player told he would be able to help, but due to pretty bad chat system could not respond it time. Player Z. came, started fight, I was in the middle of writing sentence to the chat…and received an invitation to group. The fight was started without me, hence – no point to join, killing won’t be accepted. I declined, received very negative answer.
I waited. Chatted to players. No one gave any reasonable advice – just stuff worth of Nobel prize, like “use your spells”, “heal yourself”, “fight’. Finally, some guard attacked me, then Master of Ceremonies and I had to run, entire horde of enemies behind me. Lucky, I was able to escape.
This quest is just impossible. My class proved too weak. One offensive ranged spell. One weak “offensive” spell that can be used only in front of me. One not-so clear AoE spell. And some heals I do not have time to use. Some lame “spells” I never needed and would hardly ever need, like “dance” and “crouch”. Unfortunately, I received no answers to be helped. Only one player responded, but he was lvl.10 necromancer, so would be of little help. Other chatter were a but trolling, like “at lvl.20 you could do anything on Tortage” etc. One genius told me to grow up “a few levels”. Why not 20? 200?
Chat proved to be just really bad. Gold sellers advertising their shops. Player speaking in any language, except English. No option to report gold sellers.
I have quit my Guild. It is such quiet, my “hello everyone’ does not meet any answer, my calls for help when I need it are just words in empty space. And I have ran into forced fellowship quests – things I hate most. I have to grind stuff and grow. Or cancel this quest because it is impossible, at least for me. And cancell 2 others because they are impossible for me.
Thus the day has ended – grey, a bit despairing with almost no hope of better future. Lotro goes down, AoC forces into impossible content (group quest where one can’t find any group).
