So I can understand the purist mmo players who want to run dungeons without spoilers but I've ran Garuda trial 20 times and each time there's at least one or 2 pug players that don't youtube and always cause a wipe to fail....I always youtube before dungeons so we can you know ...maybe beat the dungeon? do you youtube or not?

Do you youtube dungeons or raids before your first run?

I choose YES and I do sometimes watch you tube but generally I prefer to read the tactics of the fight this generally gets me more info what each power the boss has dose if it has specific rotations what percentage health adds spawn were they spawn and there powers and health. Videos on youtube sometimes good but a lot of them have no description of what's doing what.

On a another note I generally don't mind if people have no idea what's going on as long as they say before we start. I find it really frustrating after a few wipes someone saying they have no idea what's going on.

I believe in life before death... So dont forget to enjoy it while you still can.

10/18/13 4:10:34 AM#3

I never do in any game i play... it ruins the fun of discovery..


But if i play a dungeon for the first time, i tend to do that as DPS, just so i can mark tactics and make mental notes (unless its a new and fresh game in which case i just play my favourite roles of tank or healer)

Raids yes, dungeons never. I like to know a general idea, but I also like experiencing stuff fresh off. Personally I'll get a bit annoyed if someone is clueless about something in a pug, however say CM (where people speed run) I tend to not really care so much, more so the 'experienced' players just running over fresh 50s content. For me seeing what a fight entails is part of being prepared. While i can't say I bother with everything and I do typically just skim (knowing isn't anywhere near as good as experiencing) I still like that edge in knowing stuff before holding back others.

For stuff before 50 I just read up on it once. For level 50 stuff I watch one good video (usually the most popular or upvoted one). I don't like to waste anyone's time.. hence why I've beaten everything (dungeons + bosses + storyline) except Coil on my 1st try. Now to find a good static Coil group...

By no means I'm an elitist as I enjoy fresh run dungeons but if you try to explain the mechanics and ppl still don't learn or listen they respond to "is youtube the answer to every mmo?" Not trying to be an ass but please youtube if you have no clue on what to do in pugs as we all enjoy the content but also want to beat the dungeon trial raid

If reading up or watching a guide is required before hand outside of the game, then whilst it might be good to do so, the game itself has failed. If clues to the mechanics aren't readily available/explained in the game itself, it is poor design. Remember people worked it out without the guide in order to bring you said guide.

A lot of the enjoyment is removed when you require everything to be read up on before hand.

How will you cope when there is no guide?

EQ Next hints at this possibility. Dungeons that are randomly generated, with random end bosses/sub bosses.

Running EQ and EQ2 raids way back when, there were no guides, no you tube. You were forced to apply sounds judgement and a healthy dose of common sense.

A whole sub culture of elitists has been created by guide requirement, the shouts for, xyz class must know tactics? A little part of me dies every time I hear this. So you were lucky enough to have some one walk you through it the first time you did it but you yourself are not willing to walk the uninitiated through it yourself? Give me 8 - 16 - 24 - 100 other people who want to have fun and have the patient and common sense to do their respective best over this subset any day.

Efficiency is fast replacing exploration and entertainment. Dungeons should be an adventure not an exercise in towing the dotted line.

It's just common courtesy to learn about the dungeons beforehand because you are playing with total strangers.


These total strangers should not have to lose their valuable time wiping unnecessarily because I want the joy of discovery. That's the "real world" of mmorpgs, I'm afraid. It's just showing respect for the group.


However, if you want that joy of discovery, I believe you should play with RL friends with that agreement. Or, you can look for a group in chat with that understanding. I'm sure there are other first timers out there like you, who want to do the same. Finally, you can create your own little guild with like-minded people for the purpose of playing and exploring together with a relaxed and casual attitude.

I never do the first time. I like the excitement new area without finding out what it is like first.

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

Same here. That`s one of the main reason I play videogames. I'm not the "walkthrough" type, but I'm probably old fashioned...


As for people saying that it's "disrespectful" and that everyone should do it or else create their own group or FC, well, one could throw it back at you. If you group via the dungeon finder, you know what you sign up for (basically: anything!).

If you can't handle it and don't want to "lose your time" with noobs, you can create your own group or join an FC of like minded people. I don't see why this would not also be applicable to the "you must youtube first" crowd.

I might briefly skim through a guide or something, but I draw the line at watching videos. I play the game to experience the content, not to simply follow somebody else's lead like some kind of sheep or lemming. Discovery is half the fun in these games, and someone who can't handle a wipe or two at a boss really shouldn't be involved in this genre to begin with.

The discussion about "why won't MMO's let you fail" gets touted on these forums all the time, but I've always said that the availability of information is what has done the most to kill challenge in MMO's.


People should not be looking up guides or videos of content before they encounter it. You SHOULD have to fail and flop through it until you learn it. That's part of the fun. I know that in the middle of those moments of failure it can be frustrating to endure them, but that's what people keep saying they miss. That feeling of accomplishment.


This is also one of the reasons I laugh to myself when I see people talk about how easy WoW raids have become. The truth is  the literal opposite of that. Blizzard has continued to add depth and complexity to their raid design over the years, going back to Vanilla is hilarious when you look at what bosses used to do. 1-3 special abilities, only a few had more than one phase.

Now days, you get 3-5 phases, different responsibilities for various groups within the raid, multiple things going on.

Guides + addons like deadly boss mods have essentially sucked all the challenge out of content. How can you fail if you know what to do? It just becomes about gear after that and then it feels shallow.

People don't attribute enough of the decline in MMO challenge to this.

In case you were going to ask, I don't look up how a book ends before I read it, either.


i do let the team know its my first time and ask that they let me know why thing they want me to know. So far, no issues. Just be honest about your knowledge of the dungeon and listen to the players who have done it before.

If its a raid I normally look up the mechanics. I dont look up anything for regular dungeons.

Nope - when I first ran them with my FC, there were no videos available.

Honestly most 1-49 dungeons are so easy that you really don't need them.

Videoa showing HM Primal skill rotation are useful, saves on a lot of wipes when undergeared.

must be the last thing missing, to make MMOs the absolutely worse gaming experience...make a video fly through of how to beat all nameds in an instance...


what a sick idea to spoil the minimal newness there is in an MMO - the only fun in an instance is to figure out, as a group, how to beat it, and to explain the fight abit for people who havent done it before. Ofc you could argue there is no diffrence between watching a video and getting it explained, but tbh it is the last straw of social interaction left in MMOs.

Actually suprised how many no's figure with this new generation of level capping the quickest nowadays they just youtube it and run as quick as possible....yet some of the mechanics on high levels are advanced that it will take a first run in pug 10+ wipes to fail entirely.. I can accept several wipes for first runs but to completely fail runs is quite frustrating because someone failed to do their homework....

Why should i care about your time when im enjoying my time playing a game? If you think it's wasting your precious time then maybe you should not be playing games.
