In an effort to improve the quality of the everyday creep, I have decided that my raids, starting March 1st, will require creeps to have at least 1 Poor Map. I encourage other creep raid leaders to do the same.
Reasons for this: Maps have been, and always will be, essential to any dedicated creep. It is a huge advantage that is vastly underused on this server outside the range of simple quick transportation. When half of the creep raid does not have maps, it means the other half might as well not have them, and we are forced to walk, leaving our movements predictable and trackable. There are so many fun things we could do with maps, if everyone had them.
Before, maps used to be items and you could link it to prove that you had said map, but now since they're skills you cant link it and the only way to prove it to me is simply mapping there. I'll just have to take your word on it. However, if I find out you mislead me in any way, you will be auto-booted and ignored. I worked hard for my maps forever ago, and I'm sick and tired of not being able to bounce my raid accross the moors because others are too lazy to farm for their own. I'm sure others feel the same. You can even buy them now...c'mon. There's no excuse.
Now, this isnt as hardcore as it might sound at first. If you intend to raid with me, you have a month n sum to do a grand total of 25 quests at 1 keep for a poor map. 25 quests at, lets say 60 infamy a turn in, is a grand total of 1500 infamy. 1500 will get you r2 and then some. Otherwise they cost 395 TP if you're that desperate.
Really, I'd like everyone to have at least Poor TA and Poor TR, since those are the most used of the poor variety. Obviously the more maps you have the better. I will be happy to hand out quest items, and i'm sure some other ranked creeps will be as well.
Obviously, we all need to be on the same page here, so if you're a creep and you read this feel free to copy paste this link to creep OOC next time you loggin. Pass it along
