I am not a fan of the DRM, but I want to be.
I have struggled with the new DRM, specifically grouping and communication and completing the DRM in a timely and efficient manner. I am wondering if perhaps there is something I am missing?
1 - How many players are in my instance? I have had issues identifying how many players are in my instance, if they are fighting, leeching, lost, afk.... Is there an identifier in chat or an option to see how many players are in the same instance as me? When they join and/or leave?
2 - How can I see players in my instance on the mini-map? If they aren't in my party, or dead/resurrectable, then I don't see them. Is there a setting to change this?
3 - What is the best way to communicate with other players in my instance? So far /s is the only thing that has been responded to, but that has limited range. Should other players see /m or another chat group in the same DRM instance as me?
4 - Does the DRM mobs/bosses scale with players in the instance, or players attacking/engaged with the content?
My experience with entering public 5 man DRM solo has been successful in that I completed the content and absolutely frustrating as there is no cohesion with the players in the instance, sometimes resulting in long grindy sessions. I would hope that instanced group content would put players into a situation that allows visibility and communication to streamline the play, perhaps that is a wrong expectation to have?
I am hoping that there are some options or settings I have overlooked that will make this part of DRM easier for me to enjoy.
