I just thought it might be useful to have a thread to keep an eye on poor advice given by players on the forum. 


If you've been given poor advice by someone, post it on here.

I agree with you Oracle.. it has nothing to do with game discussions.


However, it should be in the Game Tutorials section as those posts deal directly with advice and this topic is directed at locating the bad apples in the advice bucket.

I am requesting that it gets moved to the correct area so that those seeking advice can have forknowledge of where to not go for advice.

Request DENIED

The worst advice I ever got was to from a player who saw a question and didn't respond. saw people responding, and rubbish them for telling lies.( they never expalin why you are wrong, or what is right) They log into the forum but never answer question, only bash plarium for updates, troll each other ect. They never visit pages where question are asked. Never answer them, but are quick to judge someone answer. 

They are always silently right about any matter, so they never answer questions.Those player will tell you BG are broken, why, ''no respond''. 50 K raids is possible, How? ''no respond''. 

They silently wait to cheer at someone answer, following important members( like DJ), and quoting their answers to question with, ''you are right.'' They never expand or contribute anything.

Followed by:


Never answer them, but are quick to judge someone answer


So they judge people's answers on pages they never visit???


Also, some answers cannot be given out, such as the BG trick or other tricks that benefit the few who spent the time to gather the research to come to the trick.

I have seen many offer good advice after stating the advice given is in fact wrong - Players need to join a decent league to learn the game basics and ask questions otherwise they will never learn, if I had tried to learn the game from the forums I never would have gotten anywhere in this game


Information obtained in regards to BG was learned from certain players/leagues who have agreed that it won't be shared but we are still able to give some advice on how to approach them even if they are not privy to the "trick" knowledge


If someone like DJ answers a question he is very knowledgeable so why would we need to add anything further to his advice?  I learned by joining a league with some of the best players and associated myself with some of the best - others should take that advice and move forward :)

The person that gave you advise needs to be sh*t.
You know nothing about the game

I'm not all that surprised Jezebel. We probably agree on more than you think. 

I think the only thing we don't agree on is the behaviour of some in the forums. There is a VERY fine line between flaming and trolling. In fact, I consider them the same thing, unless the parties involved are willing to debate a point maturely. If they are willing, then flame away :-)

Maybe we could flip this around and have a thread in the Tutorials section about players who are known to give good advice.

I dunno, it's just an idea. There's 17 pages of folks on the free sapphire thread. It would be nice to get a few more folks on here, even if we're on different servers. If the home page had a better "things you need to know" section or something like that. Or a thread watched by players who are good at certain aspects of the game and might be willing to give up a bit of their time to give advice.

I still maintain the best advice is to join a league with active leadership that knows aspects of the game that is willing to spend the time to help their members.


It's the way I learned - the forums are not used enough for noobs to learn properly
