Cow, your responses made perfect sence, I didn't see any need for you to have to explain yourself. And to the original poster, get over it already! The feature was put into the game for a reason (the reasons that other people in this thread were nice enough to take their time and point out to you) and it seems to be staying a part of the game. Can I also point out bazaar?! Personally, I check people for all of these different reasons and sometimes just to see their title if I'm bored or curious enough, I really fail to see the issue here.

1. What LS are you in?
2. Can me, as a WHM, help you in passing?
3. Do you have an original gear idea that might work for me?


These are just a few GOOD reason for me to check people. What do you feel like you need to hide gear-wise?

If the elitists are judging you for your gear... it's their problem and their fault. If you let it bother you... that is YOUR problem and YOUR fault.

Sorry, i'm not a war/rdm so i don't know if a low level rdm goes for int, mnd, or maybe even...dare i say it? str and attack.(just like how a dark can tank at early levels, things change over time)

I'm not a RDM either, yet I know that they should have just enough MP to make the most use of their convert, and have a set of gear for INT for MB and black magic enfeebling (Blind) and a set of gear for MND for white magic enfeebling (Paralyze, Slow) and should grab a Light/Dark Staff at lvl 51+. Now how did I know that? Could it be because I think logically? Yeah, maybe you should try it. *shrug* Just a suggestion.

Wow, just read what you said. I'm sorry, but i dont party with 6 of the same job. ^^

Good for you, I don't either. Completely irrelevent to what I was saying, (Incredibly Tough)(Dodge)(Monster).

Are those leaping boots -really- worth all that money for thief? No way to see unless i ask someone wearing them (but they could just be wearing look-alike boots). So, i check to make sure, then i ask them...option two would be to /shout asking, or i could farm for a few days, then realize they arent that great.

So basically what you're telling me is that you went 71 levels without once thinking WHY you're wearing what you're wearing? You're just wearing said equip because you saw someone else wear it? Hmm, and here I am thinking people actually got a grip of the game by then. Since you seem incapable of thinking for yourself, I'll tell you that Leaping Boots is definately 'worth it' for THFs as their main source of damage comes from SATA, and how do you boost that? Through boosting DEX (Sneak Attack) and AGI (Trick Attack)

I noticed something the other day, gear can look different when you equip it, than it does in the image on the description, so out of curiousity, i checked a few of them that way. sorry if it disturbs you that much.

Oh yeah! i remember now, i /checked sayainz in ballista that one time accidentally...its a habit for me to /c a monster i'm fighting. sorry if youre still ****** about that mistake ^^


Yeah, because I keep a list of people that have /c me in the past so I can pull it out and laugh at them when I see them, right?

As for Cowgomoo not having a "grasp concept," hmmm.. I'd say that he has more of a life then to sit there and look up Items on mysterytour when it takes but 2 seconds to /c someone. I think there's too many NA's trying to be JP in the world these days. Or some such nonsense.

Curious, but do you just bash your head against the keyboard in hopes of forming together a sentence and then press "Post Message" when you're done? Seriously, think about what you're thinking, dunce. You're basically saying that anyone trying to be resourceful is a JP wannabe. Smooth, playing the "u have no life" card, over the...internet forum..pure brillance. *thumbs up* Though I will be the first to admit that I have 'no life' but do you really think the fact that you, some anonymous user who for all I know could be child molestor who lives 5000 miles away, telling me to get a life phases me? Hmm, what's next? "don't mess with me"? XD

Hrm.. that was pretty good.

I never said I had a life. Obviously, if I find enjoyment in replying to you. But I must say, I do bash my head on the keyboard quite often when trying to think about how I can get my point across to a 14 year old with a god complex. I think your 14 anyway. Either way, IQ is the same.

And about the JP wannabe thing. I wasn't talking about resources there. I was talking about the "disrespect" from being checked. NA's didn't act like that until the JP's did, hence my saying it. You my friend have one of the Worst complexes I have ever seen in this game. I don't know what your lacking in your real life, but maybe you should focus on that, instead of your "greatness" in the game.

You really should keep your "greatness" in check. You do realize that a lot of people laugh at you in game. And I know... I know. "You don't care what people think about you in game." Neither do I. But, I'm not the one who tries to act like a god and impress people either.

Have fun.

quoted from me: 'low level rdm'
and here you are talking about convert and staves to get at 51, thats mid level rdm, buddy..but im sure youre too busy being an elitist to remember that thieves dont always have SATA either.

Im done trying to teach a stubborn person how to look at other peoples points of view, i told you how -i- view things, thats even why i left the small disclaimer at the bottom of my first post. Either agree, or disagree and move on to stating your points.

Oh yeah, congrats to giving high levels a bad name ^^

Wow,what has become of us?Such a simple topic (albiet rather pointless,but it had a point to the post'r),and it has been taken to the level of a veritable War of Words.I know if I was 75 RNg I would love to be checked everywhere I go.Maybe a lower RNG can learn something...or who knows./check is a part of the game,it's uses have all been discussed here in great length.Just filter it.It's like shouts....they are anoying...but used right can be valuable.

Just not those damm Casinos......they have no purpose what so ever.

I would check you for one reason...I would wonder why a guy who is obviously a DRK is casting Utsusemi.Maybe that works well...IDK,but never having seen it before I would be curious.

I really don't know what the big deal is about checking other people and actually till now have not thought twice about checking someone not jp.
Reasons why I /c people:
1) if your high level gear looks awesome i'd like to see what it was. Just plain curiousity. Not every piece of gear is up at the AH and I'm not going to log out of game to check mysterytour to find out when I can just check the player in front of me.
2) Being a whm/rdm I seriously care about people leveling in the base areas and will slap a protect or cure on them if I think they need it. I know I could do a /sea <t> but that's so much more typing than tab, enter, up arrow, enter for me. (I don't have a good grasp on the auto run so if i'm in the middle of typing and have to change directions it can be bad)
3) The LS. Some of the linkshell names are funny to me so I like to see the names. Also with some of the ls's you can tell what kind of person that player is, maybe they would help you do a mission or quest in the future or not

There are probably other reasons and I may update them later but for now I'm tired and want to go to bed.

I've gone WHM/NIN on several occasions for skill ups or dangerous territory that I am briefly visiting...what would checking me tell you about that? People sub ranger or theif often for farming or camping etc...it doesn't mean they EXP that way...just that it is the best combo for what they are doing at the time.

I kinda made this topic as half a joke and half serious, I wonder about your reasons for examining someone. My first post was dripping with sarcasm. You guys are too serious (except for Cowgomoo, he was trying to be a little funny), I was expecting some posts like, "Hey, think about it. They’re checking you out. Maybe they’re looking for something more than your equipment?”

I just thought that it would a good joke because its something we have done, done to us, and face on a day to day basis. You know, like, "Hey, don't you hate the post office?" or "Yeah, two phone books, what's up with that?"

Hmm. Checking doesn't bother me, if that info was really meant to be 'private' it would work like trades. I didn't like seeing the "Jimbohacky examines you"- so I turned it off. I could really care less about how checks me- or if the check me 40,000 times for fun as they follow me.
As for me checking others, I check lots of people- for many different reasons.
Linkshell- I am curious who they are a part of.
Gear- I like checking out gear.
Bazaar Comments- I love bazaar comment humor.
Boredom- nuff said.

I guess if it bothers someone, too bad. Am I supposed to also turn my camera as I walk by? If people really get offended, I am sorry, I however have no plans to change my habit.

By the way, to those asshats who say 'omg turn on the chat filter', hey, news flash, turning on the filter doesn't stop you nosy twats from /c me.


Yes, but then you will have no way of knowing if someone is checking you and then maybe you will realize that it doesn't affect your gameplay in anyway.

Seriously, I dunno if its funny or disturbing how much being checked bothers you.

I could care less who examines me and where. Being that im a ranger, not many people examine me til I do some amazing dmg. Only thing I dont like is when people examine me 5x times in 10 seconds. I dont care at all, I've spent so many freaking days working on my Ranger to make him so badass. So next time you see me, examine me if you want, i dont care =)

i don't care if someone /checks me, and i wish other people didn't either. it's like this sick taboo, when most folks just want to compare gear and see how they can improve their own.

and if you don't like being annoyed, turn it off in chat filters. ignorance is bliss.

reasons I have checked people:<1>usually to see a piece of gear I haven't seen.<2>strategy,I've seen players do things that I've never seen done,so I have checked them to try and figure out what job/level they are,and maybe if I think they might answer back,I might ask a question or two even.

I don't know what your lacking in your real life, but maybe you should focus on that, instead of your "greatness" in the game.


This coming from the person who can't be fscking spell the conjunction of 'you are'. Don't attempt to insult ANYONE's intelligent until you learn the difference between 'your' and 'you're'. One of which is a conjunction of 'you are' and one is a possessive noun. But hey, if we're all judging each other, I'd say you're about 9 years old just starting grade 3. At least your immaturity is about the same. Seriously though, assumptions about people over the internet is so stupid, it's about right up there with tying your ***** to a brick and then throwing it over the bridge. (Albeit not as painful, but the stupidity is quite near.)

Don't talk about my 'Real Life' on the internet because it's irrelevent.

You really should keep your "greatness" in check. You do realize that a lot of people laugh at you in game. And I know... I know. "You don't care what people think about you in game." Neither do I. But, I'm not the one who tries to act like a god and impress people either.

Have fun.


So apparently when you disagree with someone's opinion on the internet, you're apparently trying to act 'almighty'. No, really, get a clue, dunce.

and here you are talking about convert and staves to get at 51, thats mid level rdm, buddy..but im sure youre too busy being an elitist to remember that thieves dont always have SATA either.

Low lvl RDM - Cure and Enfeeble, mixed with a little meleeing. Happy? Learn to think for yourself.

Low lvl THF - Pre 15, carry a bow and arrow so you aren't totally useless, use bow and arrow in between SA post 15 until lvl 30 so you can do good damage in between.

Oh yeah, congrats to giving high levels a bad name ^^

Yeah, because god forbid I disagree with you, right? That makes me such a bad person. You're right, I'm not the most 'nice' high level out there, but at least I know how to do my job, and **** efficient at it to boot. I'm sorry I'm no sugar plum fairy. ; ; (Please forgive me.) From what I've seen anyways, you're the one giving high levels a bad name by being a clueless git all the way there. Learn to think for yourself.

Saiyanz.... i did Ballista limit 60 with you when i was lvl 55 ranger and you called me a noob for doing something where my so called "Job" was gimped. But it was all fun and games when i killed you with barrage and sidewinder countless times =)

But anyways i do agree with what you wrote.

Most people are too lazy to write "you're" instead of "your" I am intelligent enough to know the differ, but i just overlook it because im not writing a English Research paper.... ****, im writing on a forums. Grammar and punction will be pretty bad, but im sure you will be able to decipher what they are saying. =)

Obviously a RNG would be able to own a DRK (Especially one using gimped equip, since I didn't have much lvl 60 gear), I can't remember if I ever called you a noob, so meh. Although I'm always up for a lvl 30 match as my RNG, or THF. :)

Most people are too lazy to write "you're" instead of "your" I am intelligent enough to know the differ, but i just overlook it because im not writing a English Research paper.... ****, im writing on a forums.

You're right, I don't expect them to write 'perfect' English, but when some douchebag is insulting my intelligence, you're **** right I'm going to call him out on his stupidity.

P.S. This 'rating' crap is the most idiotic system ever, since it's accessable to idiots. Pretty much, you have to sugar coat everything you say and be all nice and loving or some douchebag that you insulted rates everyone of your post 'awful'.

The way I cut people's leg's out from under them is in a totally different manner than the way you do it. Reread our posts and compare and you'll, hopefully, see what I'm talking about.
