    I see what you did there.

    I didn't realise we were even inline for a GBH charge against the point. Here's me thinking we were all in agreement or something!

    Yeah, it's basically a case of practice makes perfect. Like when Draigoch first released, I remember my kin made a couple of people responsible for just memorising routes through tunnels and animations, so the rest of the group would just follow until they learnt it themselves. Then you had the burglar who was responsible for reading out every combo we needed. After we got the hang of our roles, it was a cake walk. But inexperience made it harder than necessary (especially that damn run through the insta death laser beam eyes at the start), even if the actual mechanics weren't too difficult.

    Isn't a case of "hard without BiS, even when focused" and "hard with BiS, if not focused" but "easy with BiS, and focused"? Might be about people's competence, as opposed to just gear. One of the few things I liked about later LotRO raiding was the presence of T1, T2, and HM. It provided enough levels for people to work their way up, until you had the top gear and could face walk it as long as you paid attention.

  6. FFXIV forum?

    Threads not exactly derailed. The suggestion has been made, which I don't have any power to put in place. Muer would have to do that. Edit: and psalm, if you could, please keep the font size spam down to a minimum please. Just looks messy, and bolding would make the same point.

    Someone can be trolling later when they weren't earlier.

    There was a last raid? Jeez, how can I be so out of the loop when I visit this site daily!? Just looked it up on the wiki page. Throne of the Dread Terror. Looks like some interesting bosses (I always liked the more obscure nameless bosses, like the Ever-Seer, and ancient evil, like Gwathnor), but they've re-used Mordirith and called him Gothmog instead. How does the raid play?

    Sorry, I meant they started getting terrible in Turbine's days. I'd say post-F2P was probably where it all went down hill, but it was RoR where they gave up the ghost.

    Even in Turbine's days, raids and instances were terrible. After RoR (and then big battles in HD), they made it clear they lacked the capacity to keep a decent raiding population afloat. Judging by what little I've seen of the game since then, Turbine 2.0 doesn't look like they've got the capacity to make anything worth calling a raid. Not that there'd be any reason to run them anyway. PvP used to be my biggest reason to min/max in raids, but they killed that off when they monetised the Moors. Not sure why else others ran raids, though.

    I'm guessing that these landscape mobs aren't actually difficult for hardcore players, though? Like how Limlight Gorge was group content, but there were still players who could solo all of it because of their perfected builds. Then again, those days we had trait slots, not trait trees, so builds were much more customisable.

    Modbreak: Right, mod powers activated, tidied an already spiraling derail.

    He isn't a douchebag for not liking your game. What this has ultimately boiled down to is someone saying "nah thanks" to your constant (apparently unpaid) promotion of Terminal Tale 1.618 and you jumping on them for it. It really should be ringing alarm bells if I'm the one that has to tell you that how you're responding to him is a bit much.
  14. Morder Pre-Purchase Packages Announced

    Note that what I said was about a difference of taste, not how someone might behave while having said difference.
  15. Morder Pre-Purchase Packages Announced

    Al, you're seriously blowing all this way out of proportion. His name is just a reference to a pretty decent line, that's all. There's no theological argument that needs to be made there. He doesn't want to play Last Legend 3.14159265359, that's all. No need to insult character or ability for a difference of taste. And yes, your devotion to your preferred game does make you look like just as much a shill as the LotRO shills we've had here, so it shouldn't be surprising that you're referenced as such. Just calm yourself down and try to look at this objectively. (And you too, Papi. You might not have been as zealous as Al has been, but you've been throwing in the unnecessary digs as well).
