Stop being a bunch of pansies.

If you don't know how to pull without aggroing half of a Beastman company, don't pull.

If you do aggro a large number of mobs, don't be a pansy and run them into other people MPKing them.

If the walls show up before the mobs, DISENGAGE THE DAMN WALL when the mobs do show up. You get more credit for them anyway. (unsubstantiated, but it seems that way)


I fully expect to end up tanking campaign mobs on monk when I get higher. But I'm 64, so I can't. But at least I attempt to contribute. Jesus.












Pansies.

This post reminds me of the time a ninja and a summoner tried to kite a BLM Yagudo NM. They wiped every Campaigner a whopping six times combined by running them through the weakened folks. Over. And over. And over. Some people just wound up warping out rather than wait for the end.

i've proably done something like that but it wasn't intentional. the NM proably came up to me when i was targeting something and the ACDS system went off. (the auto-carby detection system) and i've tried to kite it the best i can.

Well, you see on Rolanberry when the beastmen are defending people get f'in retarted and just spread out the mobs. The ones with more than one on them run erradicly through the crowd. It's kinda funny really.

Of course it's not if you're soloing a mob and someone dies right in front of you with 3 turtles behind them.

Since the campaign NPC's can take hate now it's pretty easy if there are NPC's around. Just run at them and survive as long as possible. That's what I do if I mess up pulling some.

When grabbin the Elite Guard they all just domino'd into a big line ending with Adamantfist. It was pretty funny. All I cared about was gettin Adamantfist off me. Brought him over to the NPC's. Most of the PC's grabbed the other normal mobs off me.

But yes, don't run at weakened people or people in the middle of fighting while kiting. That's just retarted. Run at some people doing nothing or NPC's of the same status. They'll grab the mobs off you easily.

I've been tanking on SAM since 65.

I blame the Soboro.

Typically, if I aggro a bunch of mobs in Campaign, it is accidental; or, to get them off of others. I'm quite used to dying so idk. I haven't intentionally pulled mobs to people(I hope). I solo out there myself, so if stuff goes awry I will pull a bunch of them and kite them away...as long as I'm eventually spotted in the ditch and raised, I'm happy.




...and as long as I'm not singing Musicals on top of the ramparts, everyone ELSE is happy, too...lol

I Agree with this message D: lol. I always go ???/BLU to Campaign anymore, because cocoon seems to be the only way I can keep my ass alive. I can't even go DRG/WAR or anything because not that many people cure anyone anymore. Everyone wacks that cursed wall! *grumble*

Yeah, face planting is definitely part of Campaign. Ah well. Got 67 in an XP party after Campaigning. 68 will start my long line of "new gear every level". I can't wait, as I have most of it already.
