Well when I took the survey I kinda wished there were more options.

<p>I hope they do this again routinely. I can't help but feel those results are a bit skewed due to the fact that it was done so shortly after the release of EoF. People were still heavily into EoF fever. Why in the world would Greater Faydark be a favorite overland zone? As a zone for new characters it's OK, nothing exciting, but as a zone for higher level players it's a nightmare to get through. Why would anyone want a "pass through" zone that is so horribly convoluted? </p><p>I also don't get the whole "port" thing. It's only been in the game a couple of months, how can it be the favorite means of travel? I guess if you are a class that can port it's great, but if you are a class that has to stand around begging for a port....well I have no idea why anyone would find that to be a favored means of travel. </p><p>Personally I don't like EoF at all and I really hope that the results of this survey don't encourage Devs to do more of the same with the next expansion. </p>

That's what guildies are for.</p></blockquote><p>First of all I would never expect a guildie to "drop what he or she is doing" so that I might avoid inconvenience.  They might do it, but I wouldn't ask it unless one was already nearby or we were all going some place together. Really, that kind of attitude of expecting other people to just jump and come help out because I'm too lazy or impatient is disgusting to me. </p><p>Secondly, I have few guildies who can port. If you recall, the ability to port is limites to Wizards and Furies. As far as I know, we currently have NO active Wizards and only one or two Furies. </p><p>Thirdly, my post had nothing to do with what guildies should or should not do for one another.  My point was that there are many travel options that one can use that do not require asking for help from other people. Therefore, I do not understand why ports, unless you yourself have the ability, would be a favored method of travel. </p>
