So now instead of waiting for one group to spend 3 hours killing the NM, we have to wait 3 hours for the top HNM on the server to finish farming in order to attempt our clear runs.

The best get better, the rest of us have to stand around and wait. Except it's worse than before, because the best had to stand around and wait before while the "moderately okay" completed content they could otherwise hog.

Just go ahead and do what you did in Abyssea and add three ???s already. It's the only solution that's going to make everyone happy.

Too bad they already rejected that out of hand before putting the time limit in. They said it would "Cause congestion to have 3 monsters in the same place." It wasn't even one of the three choices given.

Maybe if we wait long enough, he'll tell us about how he walked barefoot uphill through snow both ways in Uleregand and defeated the evil Snoll Tzar with nothing but a stack of pebbles. Men were men back then. Mithra were men, too, but they don't talk about that.

Mellowy is awesome, now.

It causes congestion to have three groups standing around waiting to kill the NM, and major consternation when one group goes ahead and pops "out of turn".

Have the three ???s scattered around then. They don't need to be in the same place. The zones are huge, and there are plenty of otherwise empty pockets to stick 'em in.

Step 1: Macro

line 1: /targetnpc
line 2: /item "Celedon/Zaffre/Alizarin Yggrete Shard I~V" <t>

Step 2: Mash macro till it pops

There you have it, equal (or better) shots at any NM competing with any LS. Better if you have more people bashing macro's. If they wont play nice, just beat them at their own game. Only real way to beat the elitism and priviledged-feeling out of those HNM LS's.

Until they use ASE to target the ??? before it respawns, giving them a fraction of a second to act before anyone else can legitimately. The best way to keep people from ******** each other over is simply to not create these situations to begin with. So, yeah, more pops if they insist on keeping the 20m timer, or heaven forbid, let people buy the Delve NM KIs for a reasonable Bayld rate dependent on tier.
