It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
It's a day off from work/school. It's winter time and its freezing cold and snowy. The family is out of the picture and the day is yours to have the house to yourself, or you have a good quality lock on your computer rooms door.
You load into your virtual world of Terminus and escape from all life's situations.
Your character is a Hafling dps Monk. It's only 6am and your guild population is low and no one from your friends list are on. This is all ok, because you have a list of things you needed to get done by yourself anyway. The world is alive with others despite no friends yet, the scenery is beautiful and the music is soothing. You do some solo gathering and it went well for crafting that new set of gear that you so much wonted.
It's getting later now around 9am, the snow outside turned to a slushy rain. On pops a few Guild members, you exchange greetings and go about your business. Out side the city you find yourself testing a few abilities and honing your skills. Your working on practicing a few crowed control skills for when you'll be grouping with friends. But over off to your left is a Clearic that's having a hard time because he's set up for healing. You both take care of the troubling mob and chat a little. You find that he loves running dungeons and that's why he made a healer. You really click and play together for a few hours. You also find that he's from New York City and your from Upstate, great your both in the same time zone and add each other to friends.
It's time for lunch, dammed, but you need the break. A half hour later your back in your virtual world of Terminus. It's 11:30 am, and things are at full swing, lots of Guild chatter, seven of your list of friends are on line. Things can't be more perfect ! Being level 16 it's time for your first dungeon
Your the aggressive type, the game is new, many are about the same level of experience with the game as you. Ah, what the hell ! Time to get the action rolling. You know it's best to find the entrance first to help guide players to you. Now, since your there, lets get a group. You have a lot of sources. A nice Guild, a healthy friends list and a real good social panel you've been playing around with, practicing player searches. Thank God were all on the same server without a Dungeon Finder, because that would blow everything because your trying to make a name for yourself, and have a lot of friends.
Anyway, lets see !.........Being dps I'll need a healer and tank first. That's easy because you new found friend is still online and is willing to heal, but the Tank is a different story. You guild seems to be low on the Tank side at your level but that's ok, You can search for one. Bringing up your social panel and type 15-19 you find eleven tanks online, that's a lot of tanks !....Never seen that before. So you send detailed invites to three of them at a time, and a few minuets later you get a hit. A level 17 Dread Lord that's been dying to give this dungeon a try. Now for two more dps, this should be easy the Guild is packed, And you have your two classes in no time.
Since you did some research, your already at the entrance, you guide them all to you. In waiting, you add all of them to your friends list incase things work out well. You discuss tactic's, roles, and give buffs. Time to head in for an epic adventure with YOUR NEW FOUND FRIENDS
An immersive day such as this can only be accomplished with a well designed social structure. No cross realm dungeon finder, mega server, long personal story lines to steal players into a solo game. Auto made groups for dynamic events will tell others " hay, I don't need anyone ".
A LIVING BREATHING WORLD !!!!!!!!!!!
