    Exclamation Fix so-called short-cuts in CC and AP

    Seriously. All you have to do is make a couple spots slippery. Problem solved.

    ya, that gets annoying. i used to tank in WoW, and people would start discussing whether or not we should skip mobs, and id just pull them. "by time you guys decide theyll be dead. i kill everything i can reach without going out of my way."

    i dont think you can do that so easily in this game.

    Trash mobs melt under the weight of even mediocre groups in RIFT. Shortcuts are hardly worth it, one person always ends up holding everyone back.

    Caving in ensures that one person will hold everyone back, forever.
    There is always a skill they will lack, and this is not the appropriate reaction to a skill they lack.

    Using the bypasses, and whether they save you time or not, is a matter of skill. Some have skill. Some want skill checks removed that they don't have.

    Teach them how to do the bypass correctly, and it will soon become as common as knowing how the T2's go. I take all the bypass newbies through it. It's easy.

    really? you consider the ability to skip mobs a skill? not only a skill, but one worth booting someone over if they fail at it?

    ... really?

    I think being awarded my daily random completion credit upon zoning in should be a skill. Please fix this, Trion.

    /signed, in my limited experience, this is just a source of conflict and frustration in groups.

    I disagree with this. They call them trash mobs for a reason. Killing them is basically a waste of your time since they rarely drop anything worthwhile. I'd much rather take the shortcut to finish the instance that much faster and move on to the next one.

    Completely different situation. And no. I played the levels. This situation is not skipping content that you've never done. This is skipping something so you don't have to do it over... and over... and over... and over ad infinitum as you grind the levels for gear.
