Most absurd thing you heard in game...

Guild Wars 2 community is a nice community. But sometimes I have to read some jawdropping absurds on chat that I can't even comprehend how someone can belive it.

Other day I was doing fractals, and there was this one person that was complaining "Oh there must be someone with a lot of toughness on this group". Then I said I had 1,7k (I was running my commander's set on chrono still) and he was like "Man, you are making the dungeon harder for us. Monsters hit harder when there someone with a lot of toughness on the group" (kitten???)

What about you? What are the most absurd things you've read ingame?

    Came across this conversation recently
    We were talking about raids and a guy in the guild showed interest and asked how to get into raids. I told him to join training guild, it's where he can learn without too much pressure or put up with toxic pugs. Another guildie jumped in and said "I would like to join a training guild to get into raid too but my guild list is full."

    "Druid sucks. I want massive DPS". You switch to the nearest thing this game has to a dedicated healer spec and wonder why your DPS has gone down? Yeah no. I told him to try soulbeast instead.

    I spend a bit of time with someone yesterday repeatedly asking me for a portal to a vista but would not tell me which one. English wasn't his first language (but it was enough to get on with) but he just didn't answer any questions. He indicated he had vision problems so found the jumping puzzle part of it hard... but also there wasn't a vista anywhere near him. I tried my best to find it, but I gave up and said sorry eventually. About an hour later he messaged me again and I went over and helped him, as he was standing by it but couldn't do the jump.

    It was absurd in a sort of surreal way... "Use portal" to where? "try here" Where do you want to go? "the surface breaks portal" Which vista do you mean? "use portal please, I not do jump"

    A long time ago.
    I was a guild officier and base necro just got Shroud 5.

    3 Necros of our WvW Guild insisted to run 500 condi dmg only for that skill.
    (Back in the day condi was completely worthless).

    After over one hour of discussion, he and 4 other necros left the guild because of it.

    I've seen a few variants of this. Most often a conversation in map chat that goes something like this:
    Player A: Can anyone help?
    Player B: with what?
    A: Hero challenge
    B: Which one?
    A: The one by me
    B: we can't see you. Where are you?
    A: so you won't help?

    Or they just never say what they want help with and then complain no one will help.

    Mastery points as well. Last week, while working on one of the POF weapons in CD, guy asks about the sludge pool of death MP. I tell him he needs skimmer, so he whispers to ask about the "one in the other zone". Assuming he's talking about Desert Highlands, I ask If it's the one through the portal or the one in the prime evil tomb, response, "the one in the other zone"...

    Ah, that one is really common in HoT maps. Rather frustrating.

    During the zerk-meta-age it was a common assumption by a lot of people, that food had absolutely no noticable effect at all (for both dungeons & fractals) and people should ignore that feature completely. For almost 5 years, I always carry Bowls of Orrian Truffle and Meat Stew and Bowls of Saffron-scented Poultry Soup with me, mostly for the situations when we wipe due to the inability of dodging certain attacks or just lack condition-cleanses. Those two saved my life and the lives of my partymembers coutless of times. But whenever I tried to use them with pugs in fractals or dungeons, I was reminded that food had no use.

    Compared to 99% of other mmo this is not the case.

    I'd defintely say it's the public (Usually Asura, sometimes Sylvari) ERP. I still don't know how or why i ended up on that particular megaserver instance.

    Oh and there was that one time in the Old PvP lobby with people talking about their favorite form of Horse...I'm sure i can't repeat the rest of that here though.

    Mid 2018, very bored so I decided to look at doing some dungeons for old time sake and saw this

    "15k so minimum, full zerker only" for ac.

    Maybe it was a nostalgia run?

    It's 1 of the easiest dungeons in the game and could be soloed for heaven sake...

    "necro is the best 1v1 spec right now in the game"

    Was the most absurd and most funny thing I read lately.

    And my favourite: "shroud skill 5 from scourge gives barrier to allies"

    It is kinda funny when people say not to cc blue champ... I've tested it hundreds of times and cc doesn't effect it's movement at all. Pretty sure no aoe at red is a legit thing tho because iirc killing the minions heals the champ.

    They do, but vast AoEs either out DPS the minor heals or kill the healing bubbles out of range to heal the boss. Either way, it’s still better to full throttle AoE DPS the boss down.
    And the Blue Oasis boss is timer/HP based when moving.

    My favourite facepalm is when you have to explain anything to do with Magic Find and what it affects, and people think you’re kidding when you say it doesn’t affect boss/ground chests.

    Better get a wriggle on.

    Not so long ago there was some weird conversation in roleplaying in Queensdale. Dont know the details anymore, but there are some rpers with strange fantasies. Queensdale map chat is standard annoying, so i mostly turn of chat when there. Don't know what it is over there, but its not as frequent in other areas/maps.

    It’s not and we even had a dev state it wasn’t in map chat at one point.
