b) some new players that have no clue and see constantly people asking for gear therefore doing it themselves
I think this is the main reason. Most of the people asking for links don’t know what they are looking for, they just see other people asking that question and copy this behavior.Then you say, so what sort of gear you after? and they can't tell you. It then becomes quite funny xD
I don’t think that anyone can prove their “divine OP abilities” in an instance like Rentus Base.You can't expect for everyone to know how much of a big shot you were on your previous server and just by some sort of miracle know of your divine OP abilities...
I don’t see nothing wrong in being in a group with people in dev56 gear especially in an instance specifically build for people in dev56 to get their first mythical gear. If anything the op über-GG players are more out of place there (don’t you think it’s redundant to do Kata with full Kata-set?). I said it in my first post, I can understand the link-requirement when it comes to challenging instances that require specific stats.Some have high expectations for some runs but once you're asked for gear aren't you a little bit of reassured that group or ally won't be built on dev56 gear? It usually calms me down tho gear is not everything that is true but at least I don't additionally worry about that sort of stuff...
No, I wouldn’t. To me asking for a link in a casual instance is a sign that you don’t know how to play the game properly and/or are unsure of your own abilities to pull it through. When I was playing actively I was organizing stuff for new players quite a lot, because I liked to help people gearing up and learning instances. I never had a problem inviting someone I don’t know to an instance. I guess we have a different game style - I don’t want to do a fast run, I want to have a fun run.To them you're the new person there, wouldn't you do the same to make sure your friends in the group gets the fast run they want? Why liability?
Anyway, I was just making an observation about the state of the server. I have a character on a German server and I’m playing very casually with it - basically I log in once a week /no legion, no friends, some completely random armor parts/. So far I’ve been able to get in a group for almost every PVE-instance (I haven’t tried Makarma and TH HM) without having to link my weapon/gear once.
I completely agree.I also see people wanting gear checks for just about everything and its completely unnecessary 95% of the time.
PVE, I would only ask for someone in at least half mythic gear for makarna, for everything else, rune tribe is more than enough. +10 weapon is nice, but not essential.
PVP, 1 vs 1 , enchant your gear is a must, group / alliance pvp, dont need enchanted gear. Just brain, class knowledge and willingness to co-ordinate with the rest of the team will suffice as group effort > headless chickens attacking random targets.
