Tol Barad Dailys and skinning (crocs/spiders)

#11KenZoePosted 6/20/2011 12:39:27 AM(edited)
I like to lurk around on my rogue and skin/stealth in TB and I often take to /1 to complain about my fellow faction members that deliberately leave grey stuff on the mobs.

Here's my argument for having people loot and benefit the skinner & thus the faction.

- Skinners are actually scarce, as profession min/maxing basically killed off a huge amount of the skinners in this game, leveling alts to help the (also diminished) amount of leatherworkers.
So what if it's not gold in your pockets, it's cheaper leather for your faction.

As it is now, my realm (which has become an elitist realm after being amongst the top five realms in EU for almost two expansions now) can't see past their own nose unless they have something to gain themselves.
Which, in return, makes it ever sweeter to just stay in stealth close enough to /pat that 'I can't autoloot'-player when he/she dies to PvP when it's obviously that you could have saved him had he allowed you to tag along for the easy leather (god those whispers are sweet!).

Funny that leather for leather Alliance are more forgiving even if they blatantly know that I am lingering around in stealth, they still happily auto loot and in return often gets the privileged of me taking verbal abuse because I didn't help someone kill them (why should I kill the hand that feeds)?

tl:dr
Loot your mobs and let the skinner do his thing, you may not gain the gold up first but you'll gain in cheaper leathers (that are insanely overpriced as it is) and you'll have the added safety of numbers - deterring someone to attack you resulting in you getting done in TB faster.

Don't really care, I have auto loot set for a reason. Besides, the vendor trash can add up.

The loot is rubbish. Only thing I loot is the quest item. Not filling my bags with crap

1.) Get bigger bags
2.) Get a Vendor-All add on
3.) Frequent a vendor (preferably a repair vendor) more often, seeing that with an attitude like that you're most likely the one that says "BRB, have to repair" before everyone else /crude assumption

Alternatively: Pop down one of the near countless options of personal vendor that we're able to carry around if you're having bag-space issues.

What, do you not use your bank and just carry all sorts of novelty items and gear with you constantly? Or do you not upgrade your bags and just use 4 small (color) pouches?

I had a guy ask me if I skinned, I said no, have at them.

Doesn't bother me if he skins the mobs, since I can't.

I don't mind if people want to skin my kills. I always auto-loot everything. Sometimes I've had them help me kill the mobs too, skinners it's always nice if you aren't doing something else to smack the mobs a few times as well. I wouldn't say it annoys me when people trail behind but I'm much more accepting of it if the person is being nice as well.

I loot everything. If someone can skin it, good for them. When I'm on my skinner, I'll lurk behind some guys who are killing mobs. Usually it's because the mob they're killing is dead by the time I'm done skinning. Otherwise I'd wait for them to tag a mob and then I'd help them kill it.

Now Tol Barad? The spider zone tends to see a lot of PVP action, with skinners from both sides scavenging the corpses.

I always loot everything no matter what because I don't like to leave gold laying on corpses.
