Old time DDO player. I played it for about 1 1/2 years then just sort of got burned out on it. One of my all-time favorites. While I realize, and appreciate, grouping is a huge part of DDO, it made it the biggest timesink MMO I've ever played.
"Hey guys I need to take out my dog."
"AFK, my daughter is crying."
"We only have 3 people, we need 1 more"
30 minutes pass...
"Well my friend is supposed to be coming on"
"We don't want you, we need a healer!"
And you can't just leave mid-quest, so if someone wipes you end up having to hang out for 2 hours at a minimum.
Yes, I ran tons of quest that went well, but there always seemed to be that time sucking element that was a bit on the extreme side compared to a lot of other games.
Anyway, so, how are the hirelings? I love grouping, don't get me wrong, but these hirelings sound like they could help to alleviate some of the scenarios I mentioned above. I'd like to hear some more about it from those who have tried to use it.
