useless party member rant in large parties, there's always somebody who can do what needs to be done. however, recently as i've been leveling my single tree blizz sorc, i've come across a lot of people who a) have no idea what is going on, b) don't care. When i play my barb, i'm always the first to the wp, waiting there for the tp'ing sorc to BO them. When the tp is up, i'm the first in the gate to clear the way for everybody else. if my resists are maxxed, i go stand in front of any elemental damage, or lure gloam blasts away from other people. But now that i've built a sorc for tp'ing, where is the courtesy? where is the help? where is the goddarn BO? dark lords, OB's, and witches are always cold immune in the worldstone. i have a 1pt telekenesis and a 1pt hydra. where are my party members? them: tell me when it's clear. *twiddles thumbs in harrogath* or: them: hey what damage does your sword/axe/spear/merc/ww do? *yadda yadda yadda* i make it clear if there are only 1-2 other people that i cannot do cold immunes. if they can't, we have to find a new game. i do the tp'ing, i set up the portal, and i provide most of the damage. all i'm asking is for them to put down their dumb echoing eq and zerk or something on a few mobs. what do they do? they die. they run around like little rats and die. in a big party, i distract mobs, use static, be the tank, or setup new portals. they don't do jack! another thing that irritates me is when they go afk in the middle of a run. it's ok of there's only 1-2 people who have to pee at that time, but when there's 6 people standing around, it's a problem, in my opinion. i try to help them by disracting lister as he is pounding on their unattended forms, but often he will not switch targets. also, why are they boggarting all the freaking potions? THEY did not just risk their lives to tp through 2.5 levels of mobs on their own coin. to avoid mana curse, i have to dump all my mana boosting eq, which means i drink a lot of pots. of course, if had a little bo, that wouldn't be a problem. but do they care? i think not. and finally, what's up with people who are doing hell baal runs with staves and 2 headstrikers? How about those dummies with 2 echoing spears who don't BO? i put together a pretty massive defensive set of eq (max block, max resists, 45% pdr) and they're running around in pajamas and bunny slippers...if they're not naked. usually i don't give a darn, because my chars are more well-rounded than this. with my zon, i could do it solo with 7 noobs sitting at the chest for all i care. my barbs are always wanted for their quick and automatic war crys. my necro has 3 tp ammy's so far. so, all i have left to say is: ARRRRRRGH!!!!!!
