Solo Ganking - share your thoughts and experiences

  • Solo Ganking - share your thoughts and experiences

    Hey, I've recently started to try some solo ganking sessions. I make this thread because I want to read some information of people who have been doing this for a longer time. What would be your rate of ganking/time? In the morning I had a very good session, the maps were rather empty and I could find solo players, both gatherers and pvpers, which was really fun. At night I've been a little bit frustrated, because I often run into big groups. I've also found a little hard to catch gatherers alone, they normally can mount and escape easily. Maybe I'm not skilled yet, maybe it's easy to run away.

    I would really apreciate to read some thoughts on that matter.


  • I found this on youtube..

  • Okay, I can do that:

    I despise ganking. But it adds color to the game. I am glad there are vile people who play the game who will do it to add flavor. Just like there are people whose job is to scrape bubblegum off the sidewalk.

    The developers could never provide NPCs wIth the kind of AI that a solo ganker operates with. I consider gankers to be players who I can choose to have nothing to do with outside a certain amount of involuntary interaction with them.
  • I have killed 30 people in the past 5 days solo. I gather wearing ganking gear (I forego the bonuses on gathering gear in order to be able to kill people while gathering) and gank anyone that is alone that I see. There are 2 key things you must have to gank efficiently solo, not including having a good weapon for ganking. and I am not going to tell you all here as I don't want it used on me.

    Is one of them poison pots or mage cowl by any chance?
  • there's a difference between solo gankers who think they are amazing pvp ers(as long as they can get the first hit or have surprise working for them) and the crew that think 5 or more v 1 is fighting.
    I suggest a system that allows solo roamers to be immune to attack by more then one player.
    This encourages the solo players. Gives a boost to the people who are considering leaving game because they can't play as they wish against the accountsharing/illegalgoldbuying/exploiting/botting crew currently having everything theirn own way
  • Thanks to all of you for the replies.

    What I can see from your answers is that solo ganking is not meant to be one of the core features of the game. Ok, I can accept that.

    The thing is, I don't think ganking in big groups is really fun. Even duos I think kind of boring because most of the time you will either take a single player and not have a fair fight or run into a big group and not have a fair fight. It's quite lame indeed.

    The successful solo ganking sessions were the funnest thing I've done in this game, and by successful I don't mean being able to win all the fights, but being able to engage in 1v1 fights with the full loot for the winner, whoever it is.

    I think I will just keep spending my silver in gear for solo ganking, if I can't find proper ground for doing this maybe I will just look for another game
