So since this is a trading guild I am assuming there are at least a few people here who farm materials and items to sell. I have a few spots I like to go and I figured I would share a few experiences. Now since I am DC I won't cross paths with too many people here outside of Cyridol. The other day I went to my one spot to farm and there was a guy down there, I talked to him for a minute and he said he would be about another ten minutes so I left and came back and he was gone so I farmed for a while. I felt we both handled this right.
My other experience was a lot less pleasant. I had been farming for a while in one of my spots, when another player came up. I usually am in area chat (my first mistake) because people come up to do a quest there and a lot of them ask what I am doing since I am several levels above the quest area. He came up, said I was in his f*ing spot and told me to clear out. I told him I was here first and wouldn't be much longer and asked if he could come back He replied with a long string of swear words at which point I left area chat. He then proceeded to try and kill what I was after and even sent me a few rude messages over live and another player messaged me and said he was yelling and me and cussing the entire time. I finished and cleared out about five minutes later, and reported him.
Mostly I have found people to generally be willing to work with me on this and I let whoever is there first stay or ask those who come up while I am farming to come back or even group with them so we both profit. Mostly though, I am by myself and don't have to worry about it. I guess what I am asking is for people to be polite while farming and work together.
I've had similar experiences. I was in craglorn and farming when I came upon a void stone deposit surrounded by wasps. I killed the wasps and was about to hit the deposit when a VR1 swooped in and stole it. Then he invited me to trade, showed me the potent nincrux he just robbed from me and went on his merry way! If ever I could kill people with lightning from their TV, it would've been him. Dirty pool my friends!
Hope he does too. Last night a Vet 14 friend took me out to Craglorn to farm for nincrux a bit and a I guy ran up and stole the void stone while we were killing the wasps. I am trying not to let a few bad apples ruin the community here but it is annoying.
Crag is getting REALLY REALLY REALLY BAD lately. I was up there doing my daily writs and I always go farming for nirncrux for about an hour after. It seems that more and more low lvl vets are now running in every time I start a fight to clear a mob. Seems like we should go up in groups and have someone in the group do the same thing so that way our group is guaranteed to get the nirncrux.
On a positive note, in a half hour of farming today, 4 potent nirncrux. YAY me. LOL!
I can definitely commiserate. The farming thing drives me crazy, but the worst was in Cyrodiil the other day. I was in a cave solo grinding and a couple of guys came in and started doing the same thing. I thought, "Alright. Plenty to go around." but one of the guys started spamming his "Move away from me" emote. Eventually they started camping to ruin the respawn rotation. Really annoying. I have to say though that I don't have a huge problem with it because I figure everyone has a right to play where, when, and how they like. It just sucks is all.
I was skyshard hunting with a group in Cyrodil the other day and we entered a delv that a guy was farming. He proceeded to rip us a new one for being in "his delv". We would have been in and out in a minute but because of his actions, we made sure he left first. What makes people think that they can stake a claim on certain areas? When I farm I always try to group with anyone there for our mutual benefit... By the way, what level are you? I have a Vet 10 in DC and am always looking for a farming buddy. ☺
Man I'm glad I'm not the only one who has v1s and 2s swoop in and jack nodes while I'm fighting off the 10 wasps or whatnots on top of them. I swear they go and intentionally wait specifically intending to grab it the second some higher level starts combat. I've learned the easy way to deal with it is an invis pot though. See them run in and pop it, drops aggro and they get wrecked. Not very useful for anything other than a mild chuckle, but somehow makes you feel better in the end.
I am new to farming in Craglorn I order to fined nirncrux, and I have already ran into this issue. I go and kill a few wasp to collect voidstone ore and here comes in any level person and scoops it up. It didn't upset me the first time, but around time number five I started to become upset. I realize it is only a game, but I think people are totally aware of the move they are pulling. I do all the heavy lifting and they swoop up the ore and probably nirncrux. Thanks for letting me vent a bit!
Maybe I'm wrong. This is my first online game. But I have very limited time to play. So when I do, there are goals that I already have in mind to meet. If I plan on questing and it takes me through a farming location or if I plan to do actual farming, I won't leave because someone thinks the delv belongs to him/her. I have not actually experienced this, but I imagine I will at some point. Can someone tell me if who is right or wrong here?
hey bunky if you got some big business ideas msg me xt4xm4nx also @jynx its a tough questions man no one is rlly right there are a lot of different ways to look at it. You could take a stance that courtesy is the way to go. If you see someone farming an area and if youre intention to farm that area will make it less profitable for both of you it makes alot of sense to say hey lemme know when youre done and ill be back. This way you both maximize your farm time. Another POV would be well i can farm it faster and better than you so your beat im gonna just outfarm you. Same goes for grinding EXP in aoe mob farms and so on. If you're a casual which it sounds like you may be... honestly just do what you want when you log in and enjoy the fact that more than likely youre making hardcore gamers everywhere lose their minds : )
