So.. has anyone had to deal with gathering up all their monsters for a good Smn burn only to have to deal with some other group throwing a fit and aga-ing them? Just had to deal with that tonight courtesy of the Moovinbrix linkshell. If you see any of their members in Korroloka while you are trying to do a burn.. I sure hope you were luckier than us.

I don’t understand why you think you deserve all the mobs in a zone. Did you have claim to them? I don’t think so.

Seems to me that everything is working as intended. Remember it is not your mob unless you have claim to it.

So just STFU

Unfortunately as the person below you had said if it's not claimed I do not believe it is counted at yours. Aside from that it is probably best not to draw any attention to this lovely event of smn burning.

As somewhat correct as you are in regards to what is considered claimed or not, for many players on this server it seems to be considered reasonable to expect people to not touch your monsters during a summoner burn. Especially those smn burns taking place in Korroloka tunnel. Anyone who doesn't know they occur down there I would have to question whether they have been living under a digital rock.

Most people I know of, when they see people gathering monsters in Korroloka, they know what is going on. They don't get mad and complain or kill the monsters, they realize there is a burn going on and just deal with it. Especially since there is so little worth doing in those tunnels otherwise.

I do appreciate though your ability to tell us years old information everyone is well aware of. Were I a new player I would be surprised over this revelation, but sadly your words are wasted.

No its against the TOS as it is purposely preventing you from leveling in that way. I know people who do burns and people have gotten temp bans for it just have everyone flood with gm calls and they will handle it.

The will only get in trouble if they say something ingame about doing it to mess up the SMN burn. If they are pretending to talk about farming drops or something like that, they will not get in trouble. However, people are generally idiots, so it might be worth reporting.

This is a bad way to see that your issue receives any attention. I've been told directly by more than one GM that they do not appreciate receiving multiple calls for the same issue and will frequently ignore the entire group of players if they are being abusive of the GM paging system. They prefer that you coordinate 1 person within your group to call a GM, not every person. Courtesy goes a long way.

This here was indeed the case. These people have proven themselves stupid, but sadly not stupid enough so that I could get one of them mad enough to incriminate themselves. I just have to hope they are too busy claiming HNMs at a suspiciously high rate when my group goes, and feel sorry for any other groups that are in Korroloka when they are feeling entitled to some exp.

Please, not this arguement again. SMN burns don't monopolize normal xp mobs, and they do not kill NMs, The only conflict SMN burns create is between themselves, farmers, and other burns. You'd be hard pressed to argue that the other group was even genuinely farming down there, because the whole ls was there. The way the OP stated it, it sounds as though the other group was just another would-be smn burn that got butt-hurt that his party got to camp and pulled first.
Did the OP have claim? No, but it must have been pretty obvious that the OP's party intended to xp of the mobs. Did the other party HAVE to respect them? Of course not, but the ToS clearly states we have to be over 12 to subscribe to this game, so why don't we play along and act the part? A SMN burn pulls once every 2 hours. Things repop in, what, 15 minutes? Just work together and let them pull once, it's not that much of an inconvenience.
