For the record, I never used the term griefing. Read back to my posts and you will see that. I used the term ganking, which is different. And we all know that throwing definitions around doesn't mean anything, anyway. Everyone has a different definition for griefing, and for ganking.

My whole point, and I will reiterate, was that people were QQing because they suddenly had a bad reputation in the game because… well because of something that actually gives you a bad Reputation in the game.

Not really sure what they actually expected…

Yes, the point is: your people tried to pass off their banditry as 'testing'. Why don't you just call it like it is? Don't pretend. And then don't get so bent out of shape when word of your banditry finds its way to other players and they refuse to do business with you. You guys are big boys. Lie in the bed you make.

When feuds, factions, and WOT make it in to the game we can talk about all the other issues regarding fairness for people who want only to PVP or to be bandits. That is not the sole intent of this game.

Seriously, you people need to take a deep breath.

Many groups of us have been testing PVP for weeks, without any use of your ganking techniques.
Urban Dictionary
Ganking is the process in which a group of characters gang up on one or more players that do not have a chance to defend themselves, Or when one high level player does the same action to a player way below his or her own level (reference).
There has been some play style that may-or-may-not have been borderline over-the-edge for what is needed to test the system, but certainly should not be referred to as ganking by anyone. Keep your personalities in check until the rest of the world can stay out of your way. The rhetoric needs a time-out. On both sides.

I wouldn't use a term if I did not know the definition. Several of these 'testings' WERE multiple people attacking others who really had no hope of defending themselves AND who were not informed of their roles in this 'testing'.

Finally, I do, several times a minute, take deep breaths, but thank you for reminding us. I will now get off your lawn.

Currently the spreadsheets show "Crafting=9" as a requirement for attaining level 4 in Dowser, while Forester, Scavenger, and Miner show "Adventure=9". I am assuming that this is a typo.

Exactly, Bringslite. Everyone should expect the unexpected. I'm not saying that people should not expect PVP, nor am I attempting to paint such a picture. I also agree that it is unrealistic to plan out all PVP, though that is what our groups have been doing.

All I AM saying is that it seems pretty silly to complain (as Bluddwolf does) about the consequences that come after someone has engaged in an activity that is generally considered-and mechanically manifested by the game itself-to be negative.

I'm saying that there will always be consequences for the actions we take in the game. Everyone should become acclimatized to this notion.

The fact that there are no rep neutral ways to perform PvP is a problem with the game design not having it in place at this late stage of alpha. By your reasoning, there should be no PvP, because all of it produces a negative feedback of reputation loss.

Would not player looting add that meaningfulness to PvP? At least then the argument that those PvPing are simply doing it for the lulz would lose the use of that argument.

I'm hopeful that GW gets player looting and War of Towers mechanics in before EE. That leaves just a bit over 3 weeks left in Alpha (unless there is another push back of EE).

Many groups of us have been testing PVP for weeks, without any use of your ganking techniques. In all honesty, I believe we are likely getting much more accurate and meaningful feedback about the game systems from our testing than you and your cronies are from your jolly-killings weakly veiled as 'testing'.

Expendable Keywords look for a match on your Feature Feat, yes. So the spell Burning Hands would look to match its keywords on Evoker. Cantrips look for matches on your Wand or Staff.

Here, in the Keywords tab, shows the correlation between Keywords.

Your explanation on the Keywords page, in the 'Battle of the Keywords' section, is incorrect. The Keyword vs. Keyword battle is with Effects only (such as Oblivious, Stun, and even Defending). Effect Power vs. Effect Protection is where you will see the 10% difference in effect per difference in keyword.

Nightdrifter has done amazing work explaining this on the Paizo threads; it shouldn't be too hard to track down and paraphrase (hopefully giving credit where credit is due).

Cheers!

EDIT: Also, just above in the Steel Greatsword example, you say "You've now matched a second keyword that will be applied in your attacks. So you're essentially now adding x10 to your base damage with the keywords Slashing and Sharp…"

The bolded x10 could easily be misconstrued as 'multiplicative', where it should actually be 'additive'. I would suggest changing the 'x' to a '+'.

You also mention this in the 'Keyword Scenarios' section. "…when you attack they synergize and allow you do an extra 5 times base damage to your opponent…" should be "Extra 5 damage"

This is all pretty silly. It is perfectly legit to attack people in the wilderness if that is your gig. It is perfectly legit to choose not to trade or interact with the people that do that.

Completely agree.

Bringslite
It is not legit to overly target a single person in combat or chat, unless they are willing participants.

Completely Agree.

Bringslite
It is also not legit to agree to trade with someone, have them travel a distance, and then renege on the trade…

While I agree that this would suck, and is not too cool, I just have to point out that things like this are going to happen. It is inevitable. People are going to talk smack about each other. People are going to spread rumours and form cliques. That is the very nature of the game we are playing.

The victim is the character who willingly performs actions that, in the game, are determined to be low Reputation and then gets stiffed out of a trade or a deal because other players talk about those deeds? That is the silly part, in my opinion. Did you not engage in the random PVP 'testing' with the full knowledge that the target might not exactly be thrilled with the idea of being a guinea pig? Yes, very noble of you to want to test PVP, because no one else is, right?

If you do something in the game that other people don't agree with-it doesn't matter if you think it is ok or not-then you have to deal with the consequences of your actions.

It is specifically designed this way. The game's economy is going to be one of the driving factors of the game: global auctions mean no travelling long distances with goods, no need to interact/ally with neighbouring nations/settlements for necessary goods, no risk for gatherers/refiners/crafters.
