The herbalism thing I wouldn't be able to fathom as a Merc. That's an errant, not a job for a mercenary.

This can, in a way, be traced back to a different thread that suggested a reverse AH where people could list what they wanted. The idea wasn't limited to mercenaries. Maybe both could be implemented? Merc board for things like "help me with x quest" and a reverse AH for things like "get me this item".

well... a mercs board is simple to do... boards are not hard to implement.

people wanting other stuff is overengineering things when wizards are already strained in what they can do.

Mercs pale in comparison to AA tanking, I'm not even mentioning Neidars, miles away from them.
Mercs pale in comparison to BDA/RDA/Calians/Knights DPSing.
They were really designed to run as lone wolves to be sufficient at everything to survive solo, but not good enough at anything specific to be an asset to a team.
Are you suggesting that the wizards should support meta-gaming over role playing?
Disgusting.

Not just here, but several times I've seen you and others mention how people only want the highest DPS and the best tanks.
"No point in teaming with anyone else" is one I've heard more than a couple times..
You're all running the numbers instead of playing a game.

Correct me, please, if I am wrong, but it seems that you're opposing the idea of a Mercenaries' job board with no argument other than that mercs have no place in a team.
The idea makes sense, from an RP perspective, and your argument stems from meta-gaming theories..
So, as I asked before, are you suggesting that the wizards should support meta-gaming over role playing?
Because it certainly seems that way to me..

I don't see him suggesting things to wizards in this thread. he argues against a merc board because he's sad no one hired him from the old one. he says he won't hire one because they won't help on his team? WELL....fine. they didn't want to team with him anyway.

don't bait the Mallor, you know he'll bite, just let it be for now.
