    This thread kinda makes me wanna roll on the next TLP just to see how badly I can play and get away with it

    That’s why gate is one of his perma memmed spells instead of gate! Duhhhhh

    Oh don't get me wrong, I don't do pickups, I was just exdplaining how to do it.

    I will sit in EC tunnel and do ports while I am selling pots or gear and I advertise I will do for donations which I do, I don't expect lowbies to tip really, but if I get lvl 50+ that get ported and don't tip, I put them on ignore.

    I don't mind doing TL's for whatever, including even just a 1pp tip, but I recently did a multiple evac for a guy with boxes to EJ and he didn't tip anything so I put him on ignore. About 2 hours later he sent a tell from another character asking why he had been put on ignore and I explained it to him and man was he pissed.

    Sorry guys, but if you really want to ask me to hit all your toons with SoW, Lev, and a group port to EJ and then not give anything? Nope, you can get another porter. I don't expect 100pp like a lot of people give, but if you are remotely higher lvl and don't tip at all you can find someone else.

    actually, mathematically it's better to kill what's killable fastest first and not keep taking the exrtra hits.

    Math is hard.

    A.K.A. focus the adds.

    This. I don't know how many times everyone would focus on the main boss pulled and the raid got wiped cause they get overrun, but sometimes you do want to just kill the big baddie as quick as you can.

    Each circumstance is different, but in general, kill small mobs first so your healers don't get mobbed when they throw out a few heals.

    focus the adds is applicable in certain situations. the general rule is the kill the most dangerous mob first. focus the adds generally only applies if there is a mechanism that will continually generate more adds.

    As mentioned above, the particular circumstances can determine the best way to go. In my experience, having the tank and healer keep the harder mob occupied while the remainder of the group deletes the adds can work well.

    I like how this thread got turned into a tutorial on assisting... but I will say Yelinak is different from prior TLP in that there is a massive amount of people who either haven't played recently/don't understand some of the stuff that has changed since actual classic era, or from P99 who think things are operationally the same as there and won't hear otherwise (camps, etc). It has been both comedy and tragedy to watch at times but it's one of those things you can't bear to look away from, either.

    This just means dbg hasn't scrapped the tlp well dry yet. Not everyone being a reroller is a positive thing. Not having the traditional super guild from every other tlp present crushing all the new people is also a positive thing for them as it allows the rise of new leaders for the next Gen tlp.

    That's an inventive solution. However, why can't Daybreak just create Translocate and Zephyr versions for those spells, as well as for the Hate and Sky group ports?

    aggro climb vs discs. NOT focusing on adds is what brings the aggro to the heal team.

    Focus adds is correct.

    Focusing on main taget lets all add aggro build toward healers and WILL wipe your raid.
  14. Ddezul Lorekeeper

    That's how you don't top parses.
    Focus on the boss and then post your parse in raid, guild, say and oop...accidentally in general.

    Own it.
  15. Ddezul Lorekeeper

    Just head to the guild lobby.

    Oh wait....
  16. Vlorg Augur

    you can be a mage and AFK so much your pet dont attack half the mobs while you sit FM for several minute in a row... and still not get kicked.

    the bar is really low. really really low.

    What class are you playing? Only class I can think of that wouldn't have root up would be a shaman and that just because Slow is too strong.
