<p>Ever since I started playing eq2 I have always loved to play my mystic. But in groups or with my friends or with guildies they all want me to play my troub or coercer because I have both and nobody else wants to play theirs. Its hard to say "no" to them and tell them I'd rather play the class I like to play. I am I crazy or are there others like me out there?</p>

<p>You just described 80% of the players that play utility classes =/</p>

<p>If nobody else wants to play theirs, then they can hardly blame you for not wanting to play yours, either.</p><p>You know, no one treats you like a rug unless you're lying on the floor, ready for them to step all over you, lol.</p><p>Tell them that from now on you'll swap off, and after all of them have made the rounds then you'll play yours again.  And if you think that's being mean, then look at it this way:  You<em> could</em> be telling them you're not playing your troub or coercer again until they play theirs instead as many times as you have in the past!  <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/97ada74b88049a6d50a6ed40898a03d7.gif" border="0" /></p><p>If none of that works, find a better group of people to team with, and play your Mystic to your heart's content.  I wouldn't go out of my way to let them know your Mystic's name, either, if they don't know it already, lol.</p>

<p>I'd never play a class unless it was fun for me, you need to figure out whats more important.</p><p>"Friends" who might not play with you for playing a class you enjoy or playing the class you enjoy regardless.</p><p>You cannot blame others or class design for something you have the final say over.</p>

<p>Or, tell them you'll group with them as a troub or whatnot, after they do something you want to do on your mystic (if applicable).  If that's not the route you want to go, then definitely playing the "everybody take a turn" card is the way to go.</p>

<p>I prefer, "I'll bring my troub if I can roll on mystic gear"</p>

<p>Ive seen people post about Rift how their game is superior to WoW because WoW is only tank, healer, dps, while Rift has Utility classes as well.</p><p>In reality, WoW chose NOT to have utility classes (and spread the utility out amongst its existing classes) because people generally dont like playing utility classes.</p><p>My thoughts are mixed, I like the concept of utility classes, but what is every single guild recruiting?  bards and Enchanters.  </p>

<p>I used to be in the same boat, but that all changed a few years ago when I got tired of being everyone's doormat.  I was the type of person that was always there helping others when they needed it, bringing out needed classes, etc.  I'm also the type of person that's very self sufficient and rarely need help, as I like to figure things out for myself.  Because of that, it took me awhile to figure out how fast people are to turn the other way when you ask for help.  =P</p><p>Once I learned that most people don't give back even a fourth of what I was putting into helping them, I started giving people -only- what they gave me.  I'm the type of person capable of moving the world for someone, but they better meet me in the middle, or I'm not sacrificing my time and fun anymore for anyone.  </p><p>What's fair is fair, and sadly too many times, what is fair is often in the eye of the beholder.  </p>
