View Full Version : I think a change needs to be made...

Take this as you want, it is mostly and observation (and only slightly a complaint), but I really think that escort mission NPCs need to either respawn much quicker, or the person who clears the mobs around them needs to have some way of getting dibs on the mission if he hasn't done it. This game is way too awesome for there to need to be downtime while waiting for something to respawn, escpecially when you clear the enemies, and can't consider it harassment when someone flies in and takes the escort quest first.
I hope it isn't only me having this problem, but even if it is, I thought it might be good to mention it here.

Whenever I get to the escort mission i just click on whoever is waiting and team up so we all get it done with no waiting. So far everyone has been willing to join together instead of waiting.

I tried inviting some people too.. 3/4 accepted. theres always one bell end who ruins it for the rest of us though.
This time it wasn't me ahahahaaa... ;)

This is by far my biggest complaint, and I had the issue with pretty much half of all collection/escort/elimination missions. Mileage varies, but playing at about 5 or 6pm eastern was a bad idea for this very reason. You can team, but the problem was too pervasive (I would've ended up teaming for most of my missions for no other reason).
Using tp to snag the item you're currently fighting four mobs for should be a bannable offense.
Or introduce open world pvp that way. Let people kill them, they'll only lose a star.

Some escort missions you can't team for, it will only give the mission taker credit. I joined up for a desert one, asked for an invite, the leader took the quest and said I wouldn't get credit (he was correct) but didn't want to be mean so invite me regardless :P
