"Help with boss plz"

Instead of asking you BEFORE stepping into the boss circle, allowing you to optimize your gear and deck for the battle, they plunge right in, get down to 50 health, then ask.

You port to them, desperately trying to use the few seconds before engagement to optimize your deck and gear for this boss of theirs. But no, you are stuck with useless spells and gear against a boss essentially by yourself because now your buddy dies or (worse) flees.

Meh my study hall just ended. So yeah thats pretty much it so far.....
1) Lol, it never ends!
2) By the time you get to Celestia, weakness is just annoying
3) I haven't seen it lately. I think I'm lucky.
4) They're good when they help you, but yes, they are the reason I don't PvP
5) Hey! Not all of us are hot shots!
6) That's insulting to me, given that I'm 10
7) Yes, another reason I don't PvP
8) This saved me from being counted as 'one of those lame menu chatters'.
9) Yes, this is one of the troubles of Wizard101, I leave my ports off
10) I've never had this happen, so I don't know how to reply :P
11) Just like Von, I like Dragonspyre most, why do you hate WC, KT, MB, MS, DS, CL, ZF, and AZ?
12) I like crowns, they let me buy cool stuff!
13) Yet again, why?
14) This is troubling, but patience is a virtue
15) I think the stuff I get from crafting is great but really? HOW do they expect me to make to Spirit Caller Drums (or whatever they are called)
16) Why? I feed to my pet the useless stuff I get in Celestia-Azteca it must taste great because he gives me good rewards
17) Haven't run into that
18) Again, never run into one
19) I usually don't ask but they just say I'm busy, so I leave them alone, but never call them Two-Faced
20) None of my friends are beggars, but I see tons in the commons
21) Yes, very annoying
22)Yeah, super annoying :(
23) I had a 2-hour long battle in Azteca. Yikes!
24) Eh, I'd ask a friend for help or something
25) Never had that, though I see posts about it all the time
26) I skip their comments and just do the quest.

Okay!!

Oh and I forgot:

3) The end key. Why did you choose that to be your go to Commons button? I'm always going to the commons whether I like it or not, just because I've misplaced my finger trying to go forward. It once happened in Waterworks! I had to walk back there just because of the end key.

5. Hotshots? Are you saying that all prometheans are annoying and evil? Seriously?

People who make fun of your gear for not giving you global resist and huge health, but are perfectly fine saying

"help i'm facing an X boss and I'm from X school and do not have any prisms in my deck"

and you go to them anyway so they can use you as a human howitzer to clear the room of same-school monsters. A boss you soloed without issue wearing your awful gear and using your awful wand.

lrn2deck. Great gear is great, but tighten up your play and you will get more mileage out of what you are wearing.

The guy who makes himself such a nuisance on one wizard that you ignore him. Then he gets online using a different wizard, whom you've friended but forgot they were connected, and demands to know why you blocked his other wizard.

Cheating bosses in Trial of the Spheres. Just as you're about to go to sleep, after a long day helping someone move, a friend asks for help "with a boss".

Four hours later, the birds are chirping outside and when you close your eyes, you can still see tower shields sliding into place BETWEEN ROUNDS.

Efreet. So overpowered. I mean, the damage is already far over the Snow Angel/Skeletal Dragon/Forest Lord's. But the -90% Weakness makes it a PVP favorite, and for non-storm wizards without a Cleanse Charm, we have to wand and ignore all the blades we then lose.

having to go to the same person at almost every quest

noobs

weakness spell ( everyone has it)

gold houses don't have any secrets

ice bosses ( hey I'm ice! chose fire or something)

how hard it is to lvl up

seeing noobs dorms

people with menu chat that want to be my friend

people that want me to gift them (they keep on wanting to add me once I delete them)

people in the commons that say " need a girl\boy"

boy\girl friends that break up with you

people that want to get reported etc.

i) i actually like being called 'young wizard'.

prof. greyrose called me that on the forums once... i jumped up and down, then hugged her and gave her cake. when you are old, you will appreciate this. trust me.

for those curious about von's age, let's just say that she's older than alhazred and the sand in krokotopia combined.




ii) i don't mind people joining my battles, as long as they are 1) polite, and 2) the appropriate level to be questing in that zone.

iii) if it sounds like an emergency, it probably is. so pack your tool belt and field rations, young wizard!

iv) i haven't been to the vault of ice in a while. but, when my myth/ice duo were in krok, i rediscovered just how much of a pain it is... it's the labyrinth of krokotopia, if you know what i mean.

v) i would rather go to the same person than 50 different ones (who are, in all likelihood, scattered across the most-obnoxious worlds).

vi) we were all noobs once. even the great and powerful von started off in wizard city, with a horrible outfit, horrible stats, and an equally-horrible deck setup.

vii) no, gold houses do not have secrets; the crowns ones sometimes do, but not like non-american players have access to most of those anyway.

(some very-nice person once gifted von a bundle not available in her country~ thank you, awesome person!)

viii) fortunately, ki has heard us and collect quests have gotten easier (see game updates).

ix) i swear, tower shield is the only spell those ice guys know; then, they learn how to stun somewhere around level 50. what a winning combination.

x) there is no such thing as perfect accuracy~ ki math only goes up to 99.9%, not 100, so there's always a chance.

xi) if it's hard to level up, you're 1) in azteca, or 2) doing it wrong.

xii) just fyi, my noob dorms are amazing.

xiii) what's wrong with menu-chatters, aside from the fact that you can't strategize with them in-game (and that's not their fault~ it's ki's, for not adding more useful stuff to the menu)? one of my very-good friends is menu chat, doesn't bother me any~ i just message her on central if we need to talk tactics.

if i *know* you and you have menu chat, i will happily turn on my friend requests for you.



xiv) beggars beware: if you even think about thinking about asking me for gifts, my face-eating kittens will find you and... well, eat your face.

xv) i will port if someone asks, if 1) i am available (not questing=/=available) and 2) you don't have a record of doing things that annoy me.

xvi) yeah, and von needs a million dollars.
it hasn't happened yet, but you don't see me standing around the commons harassing people.

xvii) i don't see what that has to do with wiz, unless you are participating in the above; game is not an adult chat room, yo.

xviii) to this day, von does not understand why anyone would want to get reported. i, for one, have put a ton of time and money (and fish paste) into this account and wouldn't want to risk it for any reason. some people are just silly.

Yeah so this ends my rant.
Sorry, I wrote this when I was in a really bad mood. I was pretty much hating life at that point. I apologize for sounding so rude and whiny. I should have been considerate and not post anything.
I wasn't implying that all prometheans are proud and conceited just merely the ones that are. I know its not just based on level but its usually from the that group.
I don't have two hours to spend on a defeat and collect quest. I barely have an hour to play the game.
Yes,I have played a game. I don't even know what I said about it. It was probably nasty.

For Dungeon hoppers I meant the people that hop into a dungeon to troll others that have to do it.
They are pretty bad if your already a low damage school.
No, am not making fun of them. I'm just merely implying that they could have better things to say.
What did I say about parents? I apologize for that since that was uncalled for.

Imao to me Ninja pig is pretty bad.

I know what farming is called. However, there is also something called losing patience after a hundred battles. Don't know what I said to that lol.

Sorry about insulting you guys. I was just talking about the obnoxious ones playing. One of the my best friends playing the game is one and I thought that she was eighteen at first ^ ^
Text chat? Yeah I think its pretty awful. You can barely say anything. I can't even say exercise like seriously.
Lag? It is that bad. I'm skipping rounds ^ ^

I agree with CRUNKATOG " It seems there should be an additional friend request filter setting so that only people who have joined a battle with you and won, can friend request or group request you." I enjoy fighting battles and ask lots of times as I pass battles "do you need help". I don't like just joining a battle, I like to ask permission out of respect. I help all that I can help. I have done many dungeons solo and have not asked for help. I still have some that I can not do and they can just wait until I get high enough to accomplish them on my own.

I do not like being harassed by others (followed relentless, asked to gift/crowns to others, and lastly if you need a girl it is your problem). My granddaughter told me how to stop someone following me everywhere and would not leave me alone; she said is he you friend, I checked and he was, she said delete him. I did and he was gone. I did not know what to do about him. Even after telling him to leave me alone he did not.

I get annoyed when you have to keep battling for an item, and it keeps saying did not get, try again. You do get tired after a while. More than 2 fizzles in a row is enough. I sure I can think of more but I have said enough for now. Thanks for allowing me to speak a little of my view. By the way my legs are tired also.

Top ten things that annoy me the most.

10:Tower shield.
Tower shield is a frustrating spell when the enemy casts it. Its is (for those who don't know) a shield that -50 from enemy attack, and it is universal. I don't have a good chance of removing it, but the best way I can think of is using a wand spell.
9:Enemy cheats and stats
Some specific ones are they NEVER run out of spells, have unlimited mana, and can sometimes use a spell without actually casting it, giving it two turns to attack.
8:"Not enough XP giving" quests.
Some quests give quite some XP, like some in Celestia, but some give barley anything for a hard challenge.
7:"Between a rock and a hard place"
Sometimes you run out of spells, and have the choice of fleeing the battle and having to restart the battle, or wait for a friend.
6:Same school enemies.
On rare occasions I fight life types, which makes it fine, but when the rare occasions happen The challenge is on. Prisms are hard for me to get on hand at the beginning of the fight.
5:Deck
You deck is limited to 64 with a max pack, and it is hard to get a specific spell you want or need in the pack when you need it, and you get it at the wrong time. How about at the beginning of the fight, you get to choose what spells you can have on hand?
4:Bad Gear
It is hard for me personally to find better gear, and when I do, it is usually worse than the gear I already have.
3:Unfair PVP
I usually never do PVP, and when I do, I am met by better spell, spritely, better gear, more able to fight fighters.
2:Earthquake
Earthquake is a weak spell with devastating results. I have to use a lot of blades to make a sure I defeat the enemy, but when it is myth, it gets rid of it all.
1:Weakness
Probably the most annoying spell, it had to top the list. It is used from some Parts of Wizard City to Azteca. It is an annoying thing especially if you can't get rid of it much like the Tower Shield.

Thank you.
