Am I the only one? PvP partner question

    Odd question/request.

    Whenever I join a guild (on Atlantic) it seems to eventually dissipate into inactivity. I have had some awesome friends over the years that I've PvPd with regardless of guild affiliation but they are off on other adventures now too. Are there any mediocre to low end PvPers like myself looking for a partner in crime? When I play with a guild I usually just x-heal, wall and rez (with walls you know so as to prevent rez kills which it seems this method isn't used as much anymore).

    This kind of feels like a creepy personals ad and I am considering deleting it but I've wondered this long enough I am just going to make the post. Is anyone out there maybe even people who are not that confident with their PvP ability but want to try. I die lots it really doesn't matter. You win some and you lose lots it is par for the course. Your muscle memory improves and you hit your macros without thinking and get better.

    I like to pop DSP and have a nice fight for it. There is a beginning, middle and end. The "winner" is the one who got the scrolls but the real winner is everyone who got to participate. Am I completely crazy here? Should I just go back to the shadows? I'd love to hear opinions. Post here for public discussion or PM me or ICQ 795598.

    ~your friendly neighborhood Podo.

    P.S. I am happy to join you on any shard if there is reasonable PvP happening.

    Im in the same boat @Podolak Not sure what to do about it. I dont PvP often, but its always nice to have a friend when I do. Ive bounced around from guild to guild on my DSer mainly due to inactivity or people i dont care to be guilded with.

    Well, in short, the answer is yes, you are crazy. But so are the rest of us. There are a few of us who are going to be taking a trip over to LS soon to try out our skill there. Over the past 3 or so years, we have went from a pvm guild to an "everything" guild. We have a few who have gotten a lot better but are still a little green. Rather than recruit pvpers, we recruit good people and teach them to pvp (or whatever they want to learn). You are more than welcome to join us on our LS vacation Podolak.

    I so know what you mean. When I moved to ATL from Catskills (gods like 6+ years ago) I joined up with HOT and they were a huge guild for the longest time. Ever since their activity declined its been kind of just a wandering boring void. I play my DSer as I survive better solo and sometimes I'll jump into VvV towns on my healer mage as I seem to survive well with that too but really its not the experience I am looking for.

    @Zuckuss do you miss me killing you constantly on Catskills? I mean yeah I know you were green (well technically red but the same guild tag) and yes that FS was supposed to be my GH macro and yes there was that time I accidentally had the harrower as my last target instead of my sampire and I kept healing it as we were wondering why it wasn't dying but...

    I guess that is what you get for being in the first PvPish guild I joined.

    You could use me as an example to the new crew of what not to do!

    I kinda want to say something mildly sarcastic and humorous in this thread... however, my wit is failing me today.

    Carry on!

    Funny, I do too...

    Scrolled out in a pre-reforging but post imbuing suit.

    Its because you know my lack of awesomeness first hand and its one of those things where it wouldn't be so funny if it wasn't true!

    I'm also on Atlantic looking to take my PVP archer to a new group that has some more PVPers.

    Let me know if you find a group :)

    I think there is lots of people out there just like this. Trouble is they my go to Yew gate just to observe and end up getting ganked and dying and never return again. Then they will probably get trashed talked in general chat or while they are getting rezzed up. Then the "real" PvP players wonder why there is nobody to fight.

    I agree and understand this sentiment. GC PvP is even more popular than actually playing and I know this is a deterrent to people looking to get into it. Having your every mistake pointed out with un-constructive criticism can be demoralizing. My only suggestion is to turn off GC. I know its not a good answer but it could help maybe a little. "in my day" you got an angry ICQ when you pissed someone off or there was a forum post about it but it wasn't as in your face.

    I know its a deterrent I just don't know a good answer but yes a valid point none the less.

    Join VvV on Siege, alot won't loot, when fighting over the alters. Only players in bad standing with the community have it hard in PvP on Siege.

    It's been awhile..last *Good* pvp I was involved in I was on a noob char attacking Giggles and her hubby ;) I'm the kind of person that will attack anyone, any time anywhere even if I know I'm gonna lose, cus it's FUN!

    We have some minor annoyances on Origin....stealth archers that like to rez-kill and take pot shots when you're redlined...not pvp...or the occasional mage that will show up to try to raid our spawn and just tele-hop his way out the sparkles in Despise....*sighs*

    I too long for some good old fashioned PvP. I have a few chars on Legends, working one up on LS and LA and Cats I think? So...yeah I'd tag along with ya Podo :)

    You should all come to Siege, we could need a few more friendly PvP'ers, willing to try to fight just for the fight, not for the loot.

    Personally I miss the good RPPvP we once had that was quite prominent on many shards not so terribly long ago. I recall if you wanted to have clean fun PvP on GLs in RP you would go hang out at Skara Brae bank. Eventually a group of Urks would come by and start causing trouble harassing the good people at the bank to "Gib Shinnies!" or they would "Klomp" you... And we would go try to arrest them. Some of my fondest memories were of good RPPvP. We had a weekly deal with a group out of Minoc where we each would fight over the road between Minoc and Yew about "taxes" and such upon travelers between the two towns... and each week we would have a battle and if one side won they would get more of the road up to the next checkpoint and then the next week they might win that back... and so on.... it was fun. And of course in Tram RP we don't loot we have some small "rules" we run by like if you die you are "knocked out" you take a 15 min break from the fight before you come back. No rez killing etc. 15 min you grab your crap and go away for 15 min stay in your death robe etc... was a lot of fun. However over the years populations dwindle and either there are too many "evil" guilds and not enough good guys or too many good guys and not enough "evil" folk to fight and the battles become uneven and folk get tired of always dying or losing and then they quit or the RP gets stale after awhile...People think there are greener pastures elsewhere so they leave only to realize that it wasn't and rather than return they quit.

    I still enjoy some good RPPvP from time to time. Wish it was more often though.

    LOL that was fun. I don't think my husband was too fond of me cheer leading you by yelling at my monitor, while he was across the room telling me.. "would you just kill her?!?!"

    NOOPEE! haha

    It's easier small community, Siege is that and we know each others. Sure, we get a few trouble makers but most times, it's just a matter of letting them in the community

    That remind me about one of my old stories, from I was a mortal slave in the guild Undead Lords, UDL, trying to become a Knight and a real member of the guild. I did make that, but that's an other story.
    The 2 ladies in the story remind me of what you are telling here. I know some had read the story before. This was from Siege was alot more active. The funny with RP is, one have to start, then the others may follow.


    Was that Myrkuls work?
    Freja was riding at an old road, she know very well, when she saw two ladies, one was young, the other could have been her mother.
    They both had an axe and were out cutting woods. They was in dress and hats and did not look like they belong to the forest. They looked very innocent and Freja could get close to them without they reacted like Mortals use to do. They just said Hello, when they saw Freja.
    Freja looked at them, and was thinking, that she wanted to please Myrkul with this two lady souls.
    Freja like to tell them why she attack, so she said: 'Prepare to die foolish mortal. My master Myrkul requires your soul.' and attacked one of them named Lovis. It did not look like Lovis wanted to give up her soul and she jumped on her horse, run to town.
    Freja then attacked the other woman; the young one named Aliena. This lady did not run but tried to fight, she died fast.
    She did not have much with her and Freja raised her again and told her: 'Thank you for adding your puny mortal soul to Myrkul's greatness'
    She mumbled something, not easy to understand, then she asked:' who is Myrkul?'
    Before Freja could say more than 'My Master and God', Lovis was back and attacked Freja.
    Freja and Lovis took a race more to town, Lovis did not know, that Freja know this forest very well and know how close she could go to town without get in trouble with the guards.
    Freja went back to Aliena.
    Aliena was still asking questions: Aha and what is your god saying to kill ladies?
    Freja said, Lady Souls pleased Myrkul very well.
    Freja told: My masters are undead lords. I'm only a slave yet serving my lords and their God Myrkul.
    This lady was careless, she was rumbling around in her items, and then she said: Wow, a necklace, look! And she smiled to Freja.
    Now, i am a rich lady or not? She said.
    She again looked at Freja and said: can i ask you something, but, you must say the truth.
    Ok ask Freja said.
    Why are all the evils killing everyone, what do they want?
    Freja did not have the answer for this, she could only try to explain, why she was killing, and even that made her trouble, she only knew, she had to kill to harvest souls to Myrkul, and she enjoyed it.
    Lovis is back again, Freja attack her and once more Freja lose the race to town.
    Lovis keep coming back, this time yelling 'go ahead talk to Aliena and don’t shoot me, I'm a NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOB'
    Freja did not know what a noob was, Freja attacked again.
    Aliena started yelling, Stop, Lovis is my aunt, please not kills old ladies.
    Freja stopped, did not follow the old lady to town this time.
    Lovis was back again, yelled: TALK; don’t KILL me.
    An evil looking mortal show up, there was writing GRANDOR: [Apache Warlord, Hun] on his clothes.
    Corp Por - Energy Bolt, GRANDOR said, and then he laughs and run of with arrows hitting him his back.
    Aliena keep asking: Tell me, what have i do with the evils in this land.
    Of all the evils, who have killing me, no one has taken my stuff, why?
    Bloodthirsty Freja said.
    Freja looked at Lovis: I still need your soul for Myrkul, she said.
    Take it if you want, Lovis said.
    Freja said, she would let Lovis keep her soul to next time.
    Lovis dropped all her items in the hands of Aliena and said: Ready to be killed.
    Aliena started to beg: Kill her please now, I have all her stuff, please kill her.
    Freja was wondering, what happing to this ladies and said no, not today.
    Next time is early enough, Lovis said and smiled.
    My stuff please I am freezing to death otherwise, Lovis said with a shivery voice.
    Aliena, my stuff please, she demanded.
    Aliena smiled evil, but did not give the stuff back.
    Lovis attacked Aliena without having a weapon.
    Let kill, Aliena said and armed her axe.
    Freja dropped an axe for Lovis feeds and the older lady turned out to be the strongest or the best to swing an axe and Aliena died again.
    Haha Lovis said, and picked up her items from Aliena's body.
    Freja shake her head and leave the ladies after she raised Aliena again.
    Freja don't understand what made these two ladies bloodthirsty, could it be Myrkul?
    Freja, Slave of Myrkul, [UDL]
