    Beggars? Wtf?

    Post by Odinbear on Sun May 27, 2012 12:11 pm

    Never seen this b4 but yesterday in the depths, got summoned in to co-op and the other phantom just stood there ( texting his partner/host?). The host texts me, " got weapons?". Usually don't but had just bought a crystal sword, so I dropped it. He picked it up, immediately texts me, " got more?". I say no, he sends me home. I quit, load another char. , summoned by same guys, this time the phantom shrugs, host shrugs. I send myself home.

    Seems these guys were just begging weapons and gear ONLY. HMMM

    I've been spending a lot of my time with my sl 30 gravelording and co-opping in the Depths. Last night I had this happen for the first time, host requested a Fury Sword then sent me home. (I've also been getting gifts from hosts--fire sword and spiked shield from one, BK halberd+2 from another.) It seemed strange to me, but from what you're saying, it's common. Maybe the peddler covenant should set up shop in The Depths. happy

    Look Skyward
    Prayer

    My action whenever this happens.

    Facepalm and BC out. I just don't get it, or maybe I don't want to try to get it. Either way its very stupid, and you should drop your pants like Slake said, then proceed to proper bow while facing away from them.

    I hate begging, it's almost pointless playing this game if you can't be bothered to even get a decent weapon for yourself

    Depending on the situation, I may give them the item. But, when I coop, it is usually with dedicated coop toons. One custom tailored to obliterate areas (at an appropriate SL though). I usually don't carry anything extra. If they are being annoying, I'll BC out and tell them not to summon me again.

    I'm not usually organized with my inventory/BB so when I get prompted to donate stuff I do so with alacrity.

    I just capitalize on the opportunity to offload all my crap. lol They can enjoy all those unupgraded shortswords to their hearts content.

    I agree with that sentiment, but it's when they start specifically asking for things like elemental weapons and slabs that annoys me.

    I'm known to message a phantom prior to heading through the fog gate and state: "If you have any souvenirs of reprisal you're willing to part with, I'd love a couple... (point at the fog gate if you refuse)" I'm not too bothered when people ask me for things, because it would be quite hypocritical of me to be bothered if I do the same thing, even if I'm politer about it.

    Had a summon do this for me at the archives. He asked if I had any heavy weapons to trade for his service. I dropped him a BKGA, he cheered and we both went down to kill Seath. He loped off the tail for me, and then promptly got killed by a clam we missed.

    He apologized but it all went well. I got the kill and we both got a decent weapon out of it.

    I love that type of player. Back before the bottomless box glitch became so common, I used to do s toll service in the Parish, even if they handed me a broken sword handle, I'd bow and give them my above average services.

    I've never seen an online game without its share of beggars. I just ignore them.

    Better yet, put the gear on hard to reach or dangerous spots. Make him work for the gear.

    This happened to me in the burg, the guy was obviously new to the game and all he wanted was free stuff. He asked for "something really good" I went off and started killing hollows. I could hear other summons bc out after he made his request. I thought I would have some fun and led the black knight back to the bonfire, which isn't as easy as I thought it would be. He sees knight and panics. I just suicide while laughing an evil laugh. Good times.

    I find this more common with low level characters. My sl10 gets asked stuff when I 2 hit the Bell Gargoyle for them after they fail the first time (I try to stay back unless they are getting owned.)

    I stock items just for the express purpose of people requesting them. I am sure I have invaded them before at some point so I help them get that humanity back!

    Never had someone ask for "more" maybe because of the fact I give out so much at a time lol

    On my rare co-op instances, i do so with my highly specialised pvp builds, so i never have anything on me. If they send me home i immediately use an orb and kill them for wasting my time.

    I find this truly fascinating. I had no idea it went on because I don't PvP or co-op much. That's capitalism for you and after all 'business is business.'
