But earlier on when I started playing LA, I realized that there was tons and tons of people doing content at every iLevel so I never felt the FOMO or the drive to go out of my way and rush content.
I took a lot of time just enjoying Mokoko’s/Rapport/etc.
This one time I decide to do a T2 Abyss and I get put in with an incredibly helpful party, I was dying every fight but folks were incredibly patient and were explaining everything to me. I even got one of them on my server sending me a mail and DM’ing me after to let me know that I did a great job for a newbie!
I mean I haven’t seen something that wholesome in MMOs for a long time, I even ended up joining their guild and they helped me hunt down Mokoko’s in hard to reach places and we sail around and do adventure islands together.
Honestly, out of almost every MMO I tried (WoW/FF14/GW2/etc) I have to say that LA has to be one of the most wholesome and socially active communities i’ve ever been a part of.
Hopefully this story gives people hope and motivation, and I hope everyone is having a blessed day/night!
I, on the other hand, and 6 other people wasted 1h running Gate of Paradise (Karkosa, T2 Abyssal) yesterday, because someone applied to our group (“join only if you know mechs”) and didn’t even knew the mechs. He didn’t know he had to breath. He died every time either because he got out of oxygen or boss killed him. We carried him until the Dragon Turtle Boss, where there is wipe mechanics. Of course he didn’t know the mechanics and wiped us all. We tried to communicate, tried to ask if he knows mechs, silence. Tried to ask if he is afk, he was moving but not writing. After everyone was prompting him in chat to speak up, the leader got feed up and we had to quit dungeon. The guy got kicked and we cleared everything flawlessly with new guy.
I still wonder the f*** was his problem? Was it bot?
