I was just levelling up. Standing in the field, killing Marble golems for experience and trophys and waiting for magic level 85. In the chat, people talked about yesterdays's event (Gnomekindle) and that the final party was great.
Player S. asked me to help her find one monster: Esh the Mind Lasher. A small lvl.50 undead Dragon with some 30.000 health points. As this is Dragon's rite of passage monster -I had no knowledge where to find it. Normally I would scout, but it would be dangerous for Player S., she is still level 40. So, had to ask one Dragon to scout area from the air.
Soon, monster was found, we went to it, killing all opposition and finally...finally Mind Lasher. We attacked it immediately, killed it and waited for Player's S response what to do next. While she was thinking, Mind Lasher spawned and had to be killed. And one more time he spawned just to be killed. Everyone began to ask Player S. to have a mercy for Mind Lasher...
Quest was over. Player S. is left with difficult task with killing lvl.100 Dragon with some 50.000 health - a difficult task. I may try to help her, since I helped with many of her rite of passage quests. We made a journey to help someone: gather 23 Silver golem components. Hunt was easy and fun.
And then Player A. appeared.
Asked for help to kill 15 jungle crawler soldiers. It was reasonable since spiders are a bit dangerous if fought as equals and they do like to attack in groups. I went, I saw, I killed everything, healed Player A and everything was going good.
Well, not untill he left group and commanded me "Nakties, don't help, heal". Result: he died 3 or 4 times. I reminded him of that and it was his first time to say "Sorry for commanding". Later he said - "Nakties, u will help me with lvl.20 to 40". That was too much, someone told Player A. he needed to grow up on his own. It's not to mention that he could not wait untill I finish helping Player S.
I have noticed other people saying they do not like Player A. and they are not going to help him. Well, my position (thanks to mmorpg.com) is that when he really needs help, I will help him, but not with everything. He need to know limits and he needs to know word "please".
Later he decided to make an event and start askingg/commanding almost everyone. Result was almost 100% negative. Then he switched to asking me if I could be his brother. My answer was - "No. I do not like brothers/sisters/dads/ moms... in the game". Then he turned to unhappy smileys again.
I switched back to my marble golems and achieved level 85 in Cleric school. Later, went to mine Mithrill and almost achieved level 83 in Weaponsmith school. Well, levelling up weaponsmith would be a bit slower - but I will make it.
I am happy to help Player S. She is impatient as are almost all Dragons. But she rushes to battlefield first, first striking the enemy and then thinking if that was right. She remembered how big spiders attacked her and yesterday she had her first revenge on them. Yes, she needs to be helped with some difficult tasks, but I am happy to help her with almost every Rite of Passage quest.
Of course, I would demand a payment for that. And the payment would be - she would have to promise she would help other players like she was helped by me. That she would have enough patience and time both to explain everything and fight with everything.
So - the day was good one. Looking forward for today's quests and growing up.
