I had a horrible party in the jungles today, put together by a WHM named Devilgg. I should have guessed by the tell I received as the invite... "pt prz come 2 jungl"... that is was going to be horrible. But I decided to give it the benefit of a doubt.
So I change to DRK and OPwarped out there, to save time. I headed to norg, change jobs back to Puppetmaster, and meet the rest of the pt outside of Kazham.
The setup wasn't too bad, WAR/NIN, SAM, PUPx2, WHM, PLD; unfortunately the players were horrendous. The SAM was pretty decent, actually, but PLD was afk, the WHM couldn't use english very well, though they insisted it was their native language.
The other pup, Gukswar... gosh I don't know where to start. Perhaps at the fact that he was wearing only Tarutaru Lv.1 RSE and the PUP animator. He used a Sharpshot Frame with the Harlequin head... a horrible combination (those of you don't know much about pup, take my word for it, it is). Then, he puts a Strobe attachment on his frame.
What the Strobe adds to your automaton is the ability to use Provoke while a Fire Maneuver is up... The sharpshot frame is straight DD, and can't take hits very well at all, but this guy insisted that his automaton could handle it. It died the first fight, about 5 seconds after using Provoke. Quoth the taru "oops i made mistake".
So now the idiot was without his automaton for 20 minutes, but thank god the party didn't last that long. The SAM pulled a gob shortly after the WHM booted the PLD, and the WAR/NIN was in the orange from the last mandy we did. Nearly everyone wiped, but when the SAM finished it off just in time with a Meikyo.
A conversation ensued where the other PUP said that everyone should be subbed nin, and that the pt should boot someone in favor of BLM x2, since... well... here's the screenshot: http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y263/Tzemesce/IdiotGukswar.jpg
I hate pickup parties. EDIT: spaces Edited, Jul 17th 2007 1:19pm by Tzemesce
