So I have returned to the game I once loved, grabbed some gear and ran off to Crushbone. Fun times! I was invited to a group, and it was fun just running around, dying etc. This is when I realized the new loot system was creating a problem. It turned out someone was just looting up all the loot. It took the Shiny Brass Shield drop from that mob to realize this as it was the only item I needed on. I’m a bard, it didn’t matter, but I was definitely not going to group with them. Fast forward a few minutes into my new group. I received a tell from a 47 necro in the hole. She tells me that I don’t need to worry about loot like that because it’s low level, and she couldn’t believe I would act like that to her 7 year old son. I was like, uhhhhh, I thought I left on good terms, so of course the argument ensued. I put her on ignore rationally thinking this was just some mama bear protecting her cub, no problem. Then, some guy messages me about the loot and trying to give it back, who happens to be in the hole in the same group as someone I was talking to in my brand new guild with said necro. I was thinking, wow, all this attention over a shiny brass shield? Granted after she sent me a tell telling me I shouldn’t worry about that [insert fun word here] loot, I literally said, “screw off.” Yes, I will tell you to screw off if the first tell you send me is offensive when you don’t even know what happened. She was acting like I got KS’ed or something, and I needed to basically go away because it was her 7 year old. Anyway, husband (presumably) is willing to help. I told him it wasn’t about the loot, but the necro came at me some type of way which was pretty upsetting. He said, well, I saw what you said, and I said yes, it was after what she said. He goes into telling me how I’m wrong about this loot, and sure if it was sebilis it might be a different conversation (which I repeatedly told him wasn’t about). Finally, I put him on ignore, left the group, and I played on my SK with my hubby cleric for the rest of the night. Well, welcome back to EQ! I hope it doesn’t stir up a lot of crazy, but I am hoping to commiserate with fellow players who may have the same experiences on TLP servers. Heck even tell me I am the jerk! Lol, good times!
