Hi guys, welcome to reda this paper, so... let us come to the question
#Don’t be Solo:
Yup, you can head out to the red zones alone if you have nobody to fame farm with but it doesn’t mean you have to stay alone. There’s a very good chance you will run into other players fame farming. If they are alone or in a very small group throw them a “Hello” “want to party?”
Speaking with other players does 3 things.
1. It humanizes you. You’re no longer just some other player like the ones we pass by and ignore (or kill) all the time. You’ve become a person who talks and have created a connection with someone else.
2. It might get you a party which offers you protection from gankers while helping you clear the area more efficiently. If the group is too big then the fame might be too small to be worth it but it’s still better than losing all the mobs to them.
3. Maybe make new lifelong friends!
So be a human.
#Use your chat as a radar:
Make sure your chat has Player Kill & Loot turned on:
When a chat notification pops up telling you that another player has died it is usually much easier to notice than the bouncing skull of death on the map. Especially if your chat has been inactive (goes invisible) and pops up when someone dies. It will also let you know how that player died which is useful information. If a player was killed by a hellgate demon then it’s probably nothing to worry about but if you see “Player X was killed by Player Y” it might be time to start planning your exit.
Loot is especially useful when fame farming as it will notify you when someone collects loot (and what they looted). So if another player/group is in a reasonable proximity of you and collect silver off a mob they killed you will be notified and instantly be aware that other player are nearby. If it reads something that isn’t the standard loot drops (silver/gems) then it’s probably someones corpse being looted. This is a big red flag.
#Save your sprints:
Try not to use your sprint (or any unnecessary ability) in areas you don’t have intel on. Sprinting makes noise and most players (especially hostile ones) know this sound and it is another tell that someone is in the area.
Also sprint will be your most useful ability to escape if you do run into hostiles and you REALLY don’t want that to be on cooldown while a tackler with a quarterstaff is trying to sprint infront of you to knock you back into his squad so they can have their way with your body... your sexy, sexy body.
#Bring a good horse:
This is actually the opposite advice as I gave in the Guide to solo gathering where I recommended bringing inexpensive, low tier gear incase you do end up getting killed.
A good horse will often be the difference between getting away and nearly getting away. I would say T4 horse at the least. I personally bring my T5 horse (His name is Pablo) everywhere I go. He has gotten me out of more bad situations than I can count.
Once you create some distance between yourself and your pursuers, preferably a screens distance away, mount up and GTFO! GO PABLO GO!
