I know many people who like me, like to solo most of, if not all of their quests. Many of us have worked on many a string of sub quests only to have a spanner thrown into the works when the final quests calls for us to be in a squad.

My proposal is simple, give us the option of choosing to do party mode or single mode. Twilight Temple has this option why not any others. The main two quests I feel should have this option is God Valley or "GV" and Warsong.

Where is the fun of testing your full mag cleric in a party of 4-6 other players all doing damage? I understand the reason behind squad quests, and cooperative game play, and I'm all for that IF I have a choice in the matter. And that's all I'm asking for, A choice....Not to just have it forced upon us.

To do those of you who may respond with "You do have a choice, you don't have to do those quests"

I say this to you. Some important quests, like the 3rd fairy cultivation for example have a squad only portion. If I want my char to be fully developed I HAVE to join a party. Why should I have to sacrifice my character's development because I want to earn my stripes myself without help?

I can play solo because I fight mobs not other players, and like I said I'm all for teaming up in a party IF I HAVE A CHOICE. Not if it's "you must do this or you cant finish this quest. Also what has this got to do with fighting other players PVP is not the issue here. That's is a whole different aspect of the game and has no connection to this topic. And multi player simply means multiple players can play at the same time, it does not mean multiple players have to play together.

This sounds like an over excessive amount of work for minimal gain.

Would you be specific in which quests you want to change?

well Kest as I have already stated the main two are Warsong and God valley. That way I can get my 3rd fairy solo I've come this far on my own, I'd like to be able to tackle the last hurdle solo too. And I would also be able to farm warsong crystals faster than I can buy them buy voting for cubi lol

I'm exactly the same Sylver :)

Even just make it like frost, just need 2 people to open but keep the difficulty the same. If worse comes to worst you can log a cleric alt to rez if you die.

Hate needing a party of 6 just to do wave 2 for GV when my seeker can easily do it itself >.>

Also how many alts can be online at a time if anyone knows?

Except for instances noted therein, no limitation exists for concurrent alts.

This sounds like a great idea at first. I actually like the frost where you need random person in squad to open gates. And sometimes you just don't feel like socialising. Or after you get some nasty experience with some douches in squad. BUT.
Just wondering which char can solo gv all the way ? Someone says seeker can do up till wave 2 - great. Can he get through all waves ? Warsong probably can be done alone, luring with genie mob by mob.

Well, for me personally for those quests I just log my buffers to reset and open them dungeons.

I mean, what comps are yous using? I'm on a 2GB ram computer and I can log in 4 clients without much trouble.

An option for solo mode would be nice, solo mode for GV would make things interesting :O

This is a valid request, and a good idea!! The ability to choose . Sometimes it's just fun to solo. In fact most of my avatars are built even in PWI by me, for me. Take yourself to the edge!! Go solo, and if you feel like playing nice with others, go for it . >:D

Really happy to see so many like minded players responding  :smiley:

I don't know how I'll do, but I have always been known to jump in the fire and see if it burns lol When I was with NIGHTWISH on PWI my motto was "Hit em with a stick and see what happens"

Yes it would, and therein lies the fun  >:D

I'd be happy with it being like FC. Would really like to see how a full MAG cleric fairs. Of cause I predict my heals would be working overtime haha

Now my biggest question about making GV soloable is...what do you do for an hour an a half, hell, probably much longer?
It would break the economy, being able to solo GV. A lot of people including myself are perfectly capable of soloing up to 6 of those instances at once, given our computers, just afking at the auras.
Now I do understand that EC is quite low, but when anyone can easily make 50ec just sitting there, the market would flood and EPW would have to find a new source for the endgame gears.
While it's plausible to lower the price of rewards gained, people would still choose to put one character into a 6 man GV to make more money than they would soloing.
As with Warsong, it would just break the lore (does anyone even read the quests?). It's a 5 man minimum because of the 5 elemental pavillions that need to be defended. As with GV, a lot of people stick 5 afk spinners to defend.

Honestly, this is a farming server, in an MMO. You are supposed to feel good about the work you put in, you're supposed to work with others, learn how your class works in a group, not just solo. We don't need to make the game easier than it is already.

I have to agree with everything Tali mentioned.

I do, however, think that Frost and Nirvana should be able to be opened solo without leading a squad (people solo those anyway). But thats not a real crisis, just an idea for convenience.
