lvl 40 wiping out low lvl PQ's

Post#1 » Tue Apr 14, 2020 8:17 pm

I know PQ means "Public Quest" and its open to everyone but this is getting damned frustrating. On my lvl 9 IB and working on chpt 4 PQ and a lvl 40 BW comes in and aoe's everything down and I get zero xp and zero influence on everything that I was attacking and he stays there and attacked everything I was attacking and I get zero xp/infl. So I get forced out and go to another PQ is another zone. After a few minutes an Engi shows up and does the same thing over and over. This just does not seem right. Even mobs that I had close to killed and the lvl 40 tags it and no xp/infl. And of course in chat people just lol and say its a PQ and there is nothing you can do about it. Just doesn't seem right.

yes
it's really isn't right
as bw I did just the same thing to get craft resourses

but it wasn't a problem for me, my twinks and my friends

that's how it is in the game
you will get exp and influence only from lasthits. but you can send him party proposal - most likely he will accept and you at least can get exp and drop
+ there's a bit of random in lootboxes just for these encounters

Players will often use a high level toon to go farm a Tier One PQ for the loot drops, looking for items to either salvage for mats or sell on the AH. There are a couple of PQ's in Ostland I farm myself from time to time. However if I show up at a PQ and there are low ranked players there I move on. There are plenty of places I can go while lower ranked player toons are a bit more confined.

People shouldn't be dicks about running you out of a PQ, but then some people are going to be. Sometimes it goes with the territory here. My suggestion is not to use the PQ's as a leveling option. Play SC's or get out into the RvR zones. More fun.

maybe ask them to opt out.
get pq reward bags at least. if they don't do that as lvl40, probably they're ****.
you shouldn't stay near ****, you move away from it.
find safer place. other pairing's same lvl pq, or other pq for chapter influence.
but SC, orvr rewards are better.

You have human pile of waste, even here in RoR.

I do farm PQ's on my high level toons for many reasons but I'm always careful when others, especially low level ones, show up. I always make sure all get their contribution, I also often tank the bigger mobs, and opt out if I don't forget, or mess up, from gold bags.

I even get a thank you, for helping out finishing hard PQ's I presume, once in a while.
Go figure.

I yup I do the same , I cant count how many random people Ive helped to finish PQ, or killed the last boss for on t 3/t4 epic quest, helped with Beastlord heroes etc. I normally see them asking in lfg chann, and if no one asnswers after a couple of can anyone help me requests i go help them.
Was the same on live and pretty much every mmo in the last 20 years .

If im at a pq and low lvls show up i opt out as i am normally doing the PQ just for the influence reward for appearance, not anything else.

if people need help with PQ , or T3/T4 epic quest 40 champ, or Beastlord, and im on just send me a /tell farming renown gets old at times, and its fun helping new lower lvl players.

high level players can be a boon for you if they stay long enough to help you complete the PQ so you can get loot bags. but them stealing your mobs that you're attacking is a bannable offense. if they dont respond to your requests, report em to a mod and move to a different PQ. there's 2 other pairings to choose from with same level mobs as that one.
Detangler - 40 DoK armor talisman farmer
Deetangler - 40/80 Chosen tankbot/murdermachine
Deeetangler - 40/6x Zealot healbot/talisman factory
Detanglerr - 40/xx Witch Elf boredom killer
Deetsquiggy - 40/x Squig butcherbot
Tangler - baby Slayer
