Re: To Skirm OR not to Skirm
Skirmishes are simply fun to do when you don't feel like questing, hit a slump or just have a few minutes. You get a bit accomplished for little relative effort. Skirmish marks have a variety of useful rewards. Skirmish deeds are worth doing for a long term goal, if you get started early, I've found, you usually finish the solo ones about 30 to 35.
It's just an alternative and alike anything else if you over do it, you can burn out. Some people can focus solely on a single thing, be it completing virtue deeds, epic quests, quests in particular areas, or skirmishes. Most of us, I think, prefer to have a variety. Skirmishes are part of that variety and worth doing just for that if nothing else.
