Now that some of us have made it to level 90, we’ve done a lot of questing. Questing to level, questing to get rep, questing to get food, questing to get mounts. Pretty much once you reach cap, you still have to continue progressing your character. Questing can get to be tiresome and frustrating. But you know what makes it even worse? Asshats.
Yep, I said it. Asshats. People who run up to take stuff they clearly see you fighting towards, or dot that mob you are heading for. They also kite a big group of mobs over your aoe, then, they drop aggro! That is like the BEST one…they live and you…well…hopefully you don’t die, but usually when it’s me, I do, because I’ve already pulled what I think I can handle.
Don’t get me wrong, I”m not talking about the folks who are questing in the same area and occasionally grab a mob you were going for…it happens. Or the person who was running for their life and honestly didn’t notice you fighting for yours. Usually, in those situations, the person says sorry and moves on (or helps even!).
Questing is a noncompetitive sport, there’s enough stuff to go around for everyone. You don’t have to be an asshat, you just have to wait a few moments for stuff to respawn. In fact the more people who are working in an area questing (at least in the newer content) the more mobs and items spawn!
Some common courtesy tips:
- Don’t steal mobs.
- Don’t train your mobs on someone else.
- Don’t take a resource someone is fighting on top of.
- Don’t skin mobs until the person killing them walks away, if they leave them, they likely aren’t a skinner.
Yes, I do realize I’m preaching to the choir here, but, as someone who can only comfortably kill one goat at a time, it gets really old. (dumb fatty goat steaks)
