I preferred to group definitely. But one thing that really sucks about grouping is when there's people that finishes all their quests and then just drops the group without helping the rest of the players finish theirs. But if you can get a solid group going for about 2 to 4 hours of just questing and grinding exp, that is very fun. Make new friends and get a core group going daily or even weekly. It's the most fun and engaging thing to do in an MMO. If I had no choice but to solo, I dont mind it either as long if I can handle doing group activites by myself.
I would only join guilds in order to advance myself in the end game stuff. If I feel the need to want better gear to have a sense of accomplishment then why not? I tend to be quite active in guilds, helping others with quests, crafting things for them, giving out advice when they need direction on where to go questing.
Originally posted by Enerzeal This is a very simple thread, and at the same time one that will no doubt baffle me. The question is simple, do you like to group up, or do you prefer to stick to yourself in an MMO? Sub question - Do you get involved with guilds beyond guild benefits, when I say benefits I mean EXP increasees, drop rate bonuses etc, not the bonuses of having a group of raiders/people you know and can play with well.
As a general rule, these days... No.
I'm long past sick and tired of the GO GO GO! Types.
If its a member of a guild I'm in, thats possible. But as far as PUG's in general go, no.
1) I enjoy grouping when I am in the mood for a faster game. Usually, I tend wander off the beaten path and "see what is over there." Not really a group-friendly style of play. However, when I do find myself in a good group, time and levels fly by and many good memories are created.
2) Guilds I join for the people, not the perks. I do not want XP boosts in a game that takes a matter of weeks to reach top level in the first place. I tend to avoid huge guilds, looking for smaller, more intimate guilds.
Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.- FARGIN_WAR
