Free them up and I won't call you a douchebag.
I stuck to my game plan, I said to myself "When Tera is available, I'm going to make a warrior and lvl up" And you know what? I did he's lvl 37 ;x started three days ago, I made tons of friends at the start...but around the second day I just blew up in lvls leaving them all behind, Lately for the past day or so I've been questing alone (And boy is it a Bish lvling on this warrior but i'm having fun) I see NO one where i'm questing, but I go back to places like BoL area or SM area and I see tons haha...
I try to be chatty but for the most part I see other guilds running together,I ask if I can join they sometimes let me, usually for BAMS, other times they ignore me outright, which is cool too, I've had to solo most of my BAMS (They're getting harder every 5 levels >.<) and when I'm stuck on one, I ask for help, 1-2 hours pass and nothing, so I try and solo, and die....6 times, but it's fun anyways.
The only time I really get to talk to people is through the instances, If you've seen me in, My warriors name is Xaverus, I'm really chatty haha, I even sometimes chat through boss fights. ( Yes I do my job, I dodge well, not that hard to type and play. ) But anyways All I ask is if you see me running around, say hello =p It would be greatly appreciated because I sometimes feel like I'm the only person playing on Tera xD
Who cares about crystals? Just make outlawed players have a percentage to drop a random piece of gear. Crystals are a dime a dozen and is meaningless to begin with. Now you're wanting to try and turn a meaningless misc item into even a more meaningless misc item. Impliment a random gear drop percentage and I'll guarantee you the ganking sh!t will come to a halt.
