View Full Version : Please help- I'm suffering

10-06-2007, 10:13 PM
I've been playing for a month. I'll get a character to mid 20's-30's.. then bam, it hits me. I get forking bored. Can't find PuG's running any RoV, Nek, CBK, DFC, anything. So I'm left to grind quests. I've been doing some Zek. Bored. So then I think "hell, maybe it's my class." Yeah, so I reroll. Gone through the process quite a bit in the last month. 35 Dirge, 22 Defiler, 25 ShadowKnight, 20~'s Inquis. My Dirge has been fun so far but jesus, I'm bored again. No groups, I hate solo play. What the hell. So now I'm considering rolling a Warlock and in about a week and a half, I'm sure I will be bored and will want to roll a Coercer or Conjuror or something. Anyone else gone through the cycle and have any tips how to break it? Perhaps it's my server? All my chars on are Mistmoore, the only reason being I have about 12plat saved up after levelling all my toons a little bit. So I'd hate to lose it, but it may be worth just cutting all my losses and moving to a diff server.(yes, this is posted at Eq2flames as well. I know alot of people here dont frequent those boards, would like advice from anyone <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> )

If you are bored, try rolling on a PvP server.  There are plenty of people who will play with you at the lower levels.

<p>Well only fixes are to join a family guild that would be willing to come mentor you.  The game has been out for a long while and quite honestly outside of guild grouping at the lower tiers, which even then occurs very infrequently there isn't alot of grouping at the lower 4 tiers.  It's just to easy to level up alts in nothing flat cause we know by now what gives us the best xp the fastest and spend very little time in the first 4 tiers.  Starting in tier 5 there are contested and raids and what not that are often called in the open channels because of peeps looking for aa and what not.</p><p>Only other option is to roll a pvp toon, which not very long into it you will be screaming about all the ganking you will have to endure..</p><p>Good luck to you.</p>

My alts don't have much of a problem getting groups on Crushbone. Some days are slower than others.. but it's never been a major problem.

Bards are interesting...almost never picked for groups, but once end game hits they're insanely needed.  All servers have 'dead zones' it seems, Guk's seems to be 55-63, as even doing /who all 55 63, I'm lucky to get 20 hits.

<p>Seems like that is how it is with all mmorpgs after awhile. Its even worse in EQ2 SoE hasnt made it worth your time to group at low levels cept for Heritage quests. The loot tables kinda suck or stuff is just too rare and by the time you get it from grouping you're too high for it to be a good upgrade. Wait till Kunark comes out I bet it wont be hard to get groups for the first month or so at those levels.</p>

Those zones are a little light these days....try joining an active guild and you will soon be farming those names virtually hassle free <img src="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/images/smilies/b2eb59423fbf5fa39342041237025880.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" width="15" height="15" />

Everyone wants a tank and a healer a smart group knows what a bard can add and grabs them.

Never had trouble getting groups on AB, perhaps it's a server issue.It also depends on how you looks for groups, make sure you /lfg and try a witty 'looking for group' line in your highest available chat channel.Typical one for me when playing my mystic..."Fae lady mystic looking for a group heading for fun and adventure, or a dashing and handsome plate tank willing to help start a group.  Failing that a troll in plate will do (but keep your helmet on please!) PST."Works a treat.

<p>Like some of the peeps suggested, joining a guild would help. One describing itself as casual or family orientated would be best I expect.</p><p> It'd provide a base of players with communication flowing to facilitate grouping. More rewarding that pugs too, building relationships that you can rely on. It's those ongoing relationships that keep most people from cancelling accounts I believe. </p><p>I know in our guild we play alts occasionally. Mentoring helps. But we get the solo stages done on various quests alone, then go and tear up a dungeon together, getting the stuff updated we couldn't do alone. Course, with some of the friends I've made I'd be happy to go assist with their solo stuff too, for the sheer pleasure of their company. <img src="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" width="15" height="15" /></p>
