Crimson Cove: Strategies for Coping with Other Players

The name of the game is Get There Firstest and Kill, Kill, Kill.

Figure out where the other guy is going to be, but arrive ahead of him and wipe out all the mobs before he gets there.

If the other guy gets there and horns in on your massacre, abandon the fight and try to clear the next room while he's mopping up.

Note that his can lead to survivors in groups of mobs that will prevent the group from respawning. If that happens, log out for a few minutes (gotta visit the restroom once in a while anyway), wait for him to do the work (which he will if he think's you've left the game), then log back on and go back to killing the imperial npcs.

    Is this the one in malabal tor public dungeon? yes i have noticed that odd behavior. I just was grateful they didnt nuke the boss and make me wait to put them down.

    The one thing that's required in public dungeons as busy as that is basic courtesy from players. Do not squat one room for three hours and ruin it for everyone else. Do the circuit and do it properly (and not literally just the two rooms connected by the passageway, either). The behaviour in there is frequently so incredibly self-centred it makes my blood boil.

    I used to farm Crimson Cove for experience and gold. There are three different rooms with their own circuits that I usually run, and I remember being annoyed by random people showing up out of nowhere and attacking the enemies I had been farming by myself for hours.

    I realized that nobody is entitled to any particular group of enemies. Even if I'm alone in the instance, farming a circuit in one of the rooms, I shouldn't be upset that someone enters the public dungeon and starts farming the enemies I had been farming. From their perspective, I'm just someone who's keeping all of the enemies to myself.

    So, it's first come, first serve. Don't feel obligated to save enemies for other players, and don't feel bad for taking them away. You are playing the video game correctly either way.

    After further review we have decided to move this thread to a category we think is more appropriate for this topic, as it's about a dungeon.

    Thank you for your understanding

    If it's one other player, sometimes I try to explain to them that if you invite someone else to your group, you share loot and get a +10% experience bonus. This is a bit counterintuitive to some players who are used to loot & experience being split and reduced in other MMOs.
