It's 2 to 6 people again. There's a reason Dagganoths Kings and ROTS can now be done solo - less and less people wanting to get into teams.

Besides, there are bosses dropping tier 92 weapons that are solo.

Requirements will start to be added by the Pro Pvm'ers, Codex abilities, certain weapons, things standards player couldn't get. Even with Raids now, you're asked to QC your kills before you are welcome into a group.


One, this has been a thing since the Corporeal Beast was released, and two, if you think a team's requirements are too harsh, don't go with them. There are plenty of teams for every current boss that will take you without having T92s/Praesul prayers/etc. There are even plenty of teams that will take you with low/no KC, but they need to know that you're a learner in advance to be able to accommodate the fact that you aren't likely to be taking roles and may need an explanation before the fight starts.

This happens every time any sort of high level PvM encounter gets added, everyone who's too lazy to learn how to deal with the mechanics ('too bad' isn't a factor, there isn't a single boss in this game you can't do on revolution with literally zero mechanical skill) or to antisocial to interact with other players in a god damn MMORPG crawl out of the woodwork to bitch and moan that we aren't receiving more high quality, thrilling, engaging skilling content like fishing frenzy and the Arc. Vegetating and repeating the same mindless actions over and over again while avoiding being within 10 miles of another player isn't everyone's idea of fun, and it sure as hell isn't good game design.
I know it's hard to keep an open heart - When even friends seem out to harm you
But if you could heal a broken heart - Wouldn't time be out to charm you?

I couldn't agree more! As an older player, who never enjoyed bossing, I can attest to the fact that there are plenty of groups out there and not only do they not care if you have zero kill count, but they let you participate for free, and it was fun. I used to dread higher level bosses because I didn't like the thought of dying over and over again, but it's all good--it's just gp, it's just a game. I now enjoy PVM, though I will never be pro, but I'm not afraid to try or ask for help. One of the young people I went with also gave me great advice for solo pvming Telos and Nex. Had I not reached out, I wouldn't be sitting with comp or MQC right now--but I wouldn't have been in the forums fussing about not having them either.
