Stranger, in one post, you say you are tired of playing by yourself, and then in another you say you don't always want to have to group up with people. Ummm. What exactly, do you (want to) do here? If you don't feel like playing with a group, then do the solo stuff. . . . that you are getting tired of. . . Honestly, that tells me you don't want to play an MMORPG! Not sure what the solution is for you. Have no suggestions.
Leisher, and Troy for that matter. Stop grinding, go free to play. Just log in and PvP. Do the stuff that you find fun.
Gordon, I think you have the wrong idea of my macroing. I'm not macroing skill gain or farming. I'm macroing so I stay in game to earn double the LP I would if I disconnected from them game.
From day one, I saw a VERY short life span for this game. Both for us, and as a whole. This is NOT a WoW replacement. This will rank up there with the top 5 shortest MMO lifespans, if you know what I mean. However, I do see it having a longer life for me because I enjoy playing it with my wife. She's been craving a game to play for quite a while. This is covering that for now. So, as long as she's playing, I'm playing. When she's done, I'll be done (as all of you will be long gone I'm sure). But, I don't see us playing this game this time next year.
It's a fun game. Very fun. Surprisingly fun. I entered the game with VERY low expectations. I think you all knew that based on all the questions I had, and complaints, before we started playing. I think that helps me like it more than some of us. I have figured out the things in the game that I enjoy doing, and have stopped doing the things I don't. I've learned how to make enough money that even a 30gp WC potion is worth it making LP somewhat less of an issue for me. I've also learned how to do more profitable, low LP sucking activities instead of the opposite. I've come to the conclusion that crafting most items in the game is worthless (to me) because the reward does NOT equal the effort. I'll be happy with my hasla/GHA equipment. Won't need the Delphinad stuff that will cost more than I care to invest in both time and gold. Items worth making. . . anything that goes into making Delphinad stuff. It's expensive as hell, not that hard to farm the resources I need via the game play I enjoy and easy to make. I've been doing sunridge ingots. The list goes on. I was able to find things that pay well, and I enjoy doing. This will give the game more life than you guys are finding.
I also have found people that I enjoy playing with, and enjoy playing with me. They are active and love to PvP.
