Suxar GCC: 'gcc ya...go ahead and have all the rares...like it matters to noobs...a noobie will only see a rare on someone else'
Edalo GCC: 'nods, we all started with the eq that we have... not spent 10+ years aquiring gear.'
Edalo GCC: 'just look at inames, he's a noob too and he's decked out.'
Swivla GCC: 'well he did roll a rogue after all'
Edalo GCC: 'nods, and an enchanter (cuz they're grossly overpowered), warrior (grossly underpowered)'
Suxar GCC: 'ok..what happens when mud reboots/crashed? thats right..everyone hunts for rares...noobs have no chance to find anything...and how can they hunt for something they dont even know exists?'
Swivla GCC: 'quest scardale'
Purul GCC: 'maybe they should xp and learn game before hunting rares?'
You GCC: 'even as a noob i always checked rares'
You GCC: 'i wanted that leprachaun bad'

Suxar GCC: 'i been around for 12 years..still dont know where 1 rare is or even the name of 1 rare...dont care...but making a point...'

Edalo GCC: 'the rares have been there... if you can't find them or even TRY who's fault is that?'
Purul GCC: 'well your fault. i play like 2 years. learnt many rares.'
You GCC: 'so you've formed opinions on something while being totally ignorant of the topic'
You GCC: 'are you a teflor or a teyaha alt'
Edalo GCC: 'lol'
You tell Kegor 'who suxar'
Kegor tells you 'Alts: 8 * Novom|Suxar|Nuada|Godisen|Nilidamis|Qua|Ahum|Gartho'
Suxar GCC: 'once again...how can you find something you dont know exists and when the mud starts up..all the rares are snagged with the quickness...hmmm?'
Zurat GCC: 'how does one learn where to search for rares ?'
You GCC: 'i heard about my first two through word of mouth'
Edalo GCC: 'are you on telnet? can't preprogram stuff into mud client?'
You GCC: 'i saw mplor's paladin wearing the buffalo cloak'
Suxar GCC: 'exactly zurat....all the old school people who know the mud get them first...every time'
You GCC: 'he told me about a cave on the skull road where the buffalo sometimes loaded'
You GCC: 'i checked it every boot until it loaded then got my noob guild to help me smite it!'
Suxar GCC: 'and if the rare is really good....its kept a strict secret'
You GCC: 'thats just not true'
You GCC: 'right now the only zones that have any secrecy left are cm and fk'
You GCC: 'and its cause the quests are SO long that only a few people have done them'
Edalo GCC: 'can't find info? can't seem to get those rares? Ever tried sucking less?'
Eki GCC: 'you're forgetting Llorin, Suxar is on the "don't tell about rares" list. BAD llorin.'
You tell Kegor 'who edalo'
Kegor tells you 'Alts: 12 * Vagag|Edalo|Gagrag|Vakus|Vakis|Banasem|Zuzol|Sali|Alane|Senata|Lunos|Lasal'
You GCC: 'oh snap yer right eki'
Suxar GCC: 'ya...and if i could find a string and potatoe...i would know one of them long lost secrets that prolly hasnt been found yet'
Suxar GCC: 'and its just happens to be a damn rogue quests too...so it dont even help me at all'
Zurat GCC: 'hard to find/get rare items if you don't know they exist'
Edalo GCC: 'so you LOOK'
Zurat GCC: 'where?'
Suxar GCC: 'look where??? by the time we look in the right spot its gone already!'
Edalo GCC: 'NOT IN VT'
Swivla GCC: 'lf gate off smoke'
Edalo GCC: 'NOT XPING'
Edalo GCC: 'it's a HUGE map'
Suxar GCC: 'people search rares first thing....how is a noob gonna wander around and find it before people who know what they are looking for ???'
You GCC: 'pick a zone and learn its quests'
Inama GCC: 'well rares go in and out of style too'
Purul GCC: 'agreed Llorin'
You GCC: 'you don't know what you're looking for cause you've never learned a quest'
Inama GCC: 'for a while ashgorrock was heavily farmed'
Zurat GCC: 'so I search every room in the mud and die dozens of times, just to find something I have no idea what it is?'
Inama GCC: 'now its not'
Edalo GCC: 'there's stuff that people don't want anymore... I'm sure you could find somthing'
You GCC: 'erlan/kern is the easiest example of rares that are accessible to anyone and its easy to find something'
Ssotus GCC: 'anyone doing xp.. ?'
Zurat GCC: 'the mud is just xp and money to buy stuff'
Inama GCC: 'delayed rares are the best, harder to camp'
Edalo GCC: 'nods inama'
Edalo GCC: 'money isn't worth much here'
Suxar GCC: 'and what about those people who dont care about quests and just want to kill stuff for stuff...guess they are kinda screwed'
Inama GCC: 'no no, i kill stuff all the time'
Edalo GCC: 'unless you're an evil, don't zone, and buy everyone's overpriced throwbacks on auctions.'
Suxar GCC: 'thats what i do...'

Suxar GCC: 'because i find it pointless to try and find anything'

Edalo GCC: 'if you don't care about quests, then don't do em... but don't bitch when all of the GOOD stuff in the game is quest gear.'
Edalo GCC: 'then quit bitching, dude!?'
Swivla GCC: 'really? quest eq >> zone eq?'
Edalo GCC: 'it is what it is bro...'
You GCC: 'jesus suxar do you just sit in vt crying while you masturbate?'
Edalo GCC: 'if you don't like it... goto mudmagic.com and download your VERY OWN set of code.'
Suxar GCC: 'only when your mouth is open'
Zurat GCC: 'well, the zoning thing must be for known folks or buddies because in my view at least,,,it never happens'
Edalo GCC: 'ellen zones, even with evils...'
Zurat GCC: 'maybe I need to join a guild?'
You GCC: 'we zone every day and when lilithelle or i lead its usually pretty open to anyone'
Edalo GCC: 'maybe ya need to bitch less and play more.'
Inama GCC: 'I even zone with Cofen'
You GCC: 'playing a necro means you prolly get overlooked a lot'
Edalo GCC: '*shudder* Cofen'
You GCC: 'making known that you are interested to people who lead is important tho'
Zurat GCC: 'I've asked numerous times to join and get the "we're Closed" sign'
You GCC: 'groups fill fast'
Inama GCC: 'and necro isn't the best class'
Suxar GCC: 'gcc expecially groups to the good eq that matters'
Edalo GCC: 'Nods, only useful in Tiatmat'
Zurat GCC: '50th Troll Warrior'
You GCC: 'usually its "we need cleric/damage/tanks"'
Inama GCC: 'warriors are slightly over done on evil side but i do try to be inclusive'
Edalo GCC: 'or a chanter'
You GCC: 'necros are useful, just not as well tuned for standard zone groups as other classes'

Suxar GCC: 'warriors are useless...a spectre tanks better'

Inama GCC: 'great class for learning about the mud though'
You GCC: 'el oh el'
Inama GCC: 'can't scale/blur spectres'
Suxar GCC: 'a warrior cant scale blur himself either'
Inama GCC: 'besides when gormal dies its a happy time, when a spectre dies i'm a little sad'
You GCC: 'i can blur myself'
Edalo GCC: 'nods, I can mirror myself'
You GCC: 'and when you're talking about zone groups that doesn't even make sense'
You tell Kegor 'who suxar'
Kegor tells you 'Alts: 8 * Novom|Suxar|Nuada|Godisen|Nilidamis|Qua|Ahum|Gartho'
Edalo GCC: 'hell if I've got enough mobs I can blur and fireshield self'
Suxar GCC: 'i said a warrior cant blur and scale himself....same as a spectre'
You GCC: 'you cant even cast it on a spectre'
Suxar GCC: 'and a spectre can tank better than a warrior'
You GCC: 'rofl you must be a horrible warrior'
Edalo GCC: 'my war will OWN any of your spectres...'
Suxar GCC: 'why? because every slot on me isnt a rare?'
You GCC: 'no, because you think an npc can outtank a pc'
Suxar GCC: 'a spectre can out tank me....'
You GCC: 'and you play a race thats got amazing racials'
Suxar GCC: 'and my ac is about -150'
You GCC: 'on what a single duergar in cm?'
Edalo GCC: 'you prolly suck as a player then...'
Linarem GCC: 'just based on skills .. -100 ac (0 hit 0 dam) pc can outtank any npc'
Suxar GCC: 'BS'
Linarem GCC: 'doesnt take rares to get there'
You GCC: 'spectre + dragon breath = lol'

Suxar GCC: 'your the type of person i beat the shit out of in real life...come to my house please...'

"Vari GCC: 'why is it when guys fight it always come's down to the size of the tool?'"

lol, well duh... isn't it obvious? ;)

And isn't ideal ripped, lean and mean weight at 5'11" 180?

Yeah, I've been around 12.5 years, I don't know many rares, I don't bitch about not knowing rares, I just choose not to hunt them really. But I do know that there are plenty of ways to learn to do this stuff. I mean, everyone that knows this stuff now started out as a noob at one point themselves, right?

Except maybe lili... bet she was hunting rares at level 10 with her first char ever... lol. ;)

Lili never started she spanwed. Lilithelle is actually a bot that Shev and Shar made when they started up Torilmud. Also Lilibot (tm) will be unimplemented in 2.0 since there will be no use for her (as if there is a use for her now).

What is the point of this thread? Is it to humiliate a frustrated player? Maybe to find some end that being civil or polite couldn't find? I understand that things are said in game that would not be said irl, however I don't understand why they sometimes get posted on our board to litter it like this?

I'm close to removing the thread, but before I do, I'd sincerely like to know. It serves no positive purpose.

Pretty much yup. Also goes to show you how some people on this MUD are completely stupid and think that their seniority on this MUD is a direct correlation to skill.

I would have left it on the mud until Suxar opted for the threat of physical violence. Once you cross that line of stupidity, I've always felt that everyone should know. Plus there's so much comedy in here, half the mud has been making spectre tank jokes for 2 days.

For what it's worth, the spectre jokes are about the only thing that made last night's Magma run bearable. I call that a valid contribution to society.

Would you believe that this isn't the first time someone threatened to hurt me in a game? Here's the WoW thread I posted about the guy who threatened to bring the Hell's Angels to my house and break me in half. (Scroll down to post #70 for the summary of the entire thread.)

Part of what concerns me is this:

who helper
Listing of the Staff
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
[ Administrator ] Lliira Joybringer, Mistress of the Revels
[ FORGER ADMIN ] Shar -The Dark Goddess of the Night, the Lady of Loss, the Nightsinger
[ Greater RP-Q ] Eilistraee The Dark Maiden, Lady of the Dance (RP)

There are 3 visible staff member(s) on.

Listing of the Mortals!
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
[50 Ele] Inama (Grey Elf)
[50 Sha] Faval (Barbarian)
[50 Ele] Llorin Willowbreeze (Grey Elf) (RP) <-------------------------
[50 Bar] Kegor -Loremaster- Triterium (Human)

There are 4 mortal(s) on.

If people can't rely on helpers to be friendly and ... well, helpful, why bother with the tag? Do you still want it?

No answer needed, it's just a rhetorical question, however this is not the first instance where the helper flag has been misleading. All I ask (with regards to this thread specifically and those concerned) is to think before acting. :)

Thanks! :)

If you really want to turn this to a discussion on newbie helpers, then lets go there... why not. I'm one of the few people who actively responds to questions on NHC and helps out newbies (whether true newbs or people new to a class/zone). As a helper, shouldn't it be my place to shoot down bad information in the gameplay channel? As for the tone of how I do it, I don't feel the need to sugar coat things with someone who's been here for 12 years.

Once someone starts making comments about kicking my ass though, all bets are off. Personally, I'd rather see someone rip up someone else who's making statements like "rares are stupid but I don't even know where a single one loads", than open it up to debate. Suxar made multiple statements that were completely ridiculous, I called him on it, hillarity ensued. Now everyone can have a laugh at his expense, yay!

Just so it is clear, I can understand the things from the post that happened in game. I just don't understand *at all* why it got posted. I tend to stick to the betterment idea of posting, meaning if it does nothing to benefit the community, I usually won't post it. Was this for humor? Humiliation? Maybe editing out names would have drawn less questions from me but by all appearances, this is about trying to humiliate the ignorance and opinion of another player. Im2c, public humiliation (which is what this looks like to me) should only be used to punish someone. Was it about punishment?

I'm not trying to be dense, I just don't get it. On the other hand, I'm not sure I want to. :)

About helpers- they aren't just newbie (or new player) helpers. They are specially designated players who volunteer to be helpful to the entire pbase, current and potential. You guys are the ambassadors to TorilMUD. The "in touch" ones with whom the staff place trust to put the best face on a faceless entity. If that isn't what you helpers signed up for, maybe being a helper isn't for you.

Please understand, I'm not attacking you Gormal, I'm trying to help everyone at the same time. Hard thing to do.

I don't look at it as punishment as much as I see it as a natural consequence to incredible stupidity. If I said something this outlandish, I have every expectation that its going to become public knowledge, and I'd deserve it.

I for one am glad Gormal posted this. It's a good warning should I ever come back and have to group with him.

I've a rl friend who's similar to gormal in the respect that he refuses to sugar coat anything, and just flat out tells it like it is. He's blunt, and sometimes it comes across harsher than intended, but a lot of people don't seem to be able to handle it. I can, because I lived with a bunch of yankees in college, and I got used to it, lol. You glean what info you can, and take the rest with a grain of salt. Most people though seem to enjoy things being sugar coated. Gives them that warm happy fuzzy feeling I guess.

But if you think about it, the fact that he gave a damn enough to try and correct those misconceptions at least shows that he was trying to help. There are those who do the same simply to try and prove themselves and show that they are smart, though. But you can usually pick them out really quick if you pay attention to what they say and how they say it.

And I think the public call out is understandable in some respects, simply because of the threats. I'd personally rather not play with someone with whom I might disagree with on some topic, only to end up being threatened by gangs of spectres. Now I know!

Good points Cordan. Both of these reasons I quoted above were why I did not just outright delete the thread, so thank you for pointing it out for all the other readers out there. People have different styles of dealing with others' behavior toward them. This is just one of the many examples we have available in game and on the forums. Do I necessarily agree with how it was presented and handled? No, but I'm only involved after the fact.

Bottom line for me is, we need more helpers, not less, so I'm willing to let others help in whatever way they can even if I would do things differently in both asking for the help and in the giving of it.

You can only help people who are willing to learn and the mental capacity to realize they're bad at this game and need help. Took Gormal quite a few years to realize this.

Maybe I can help you learn more about the English language, Brian.
