Leeching is not a good thing to do. Unless of course, your friends offer to let you if they’re nice! :D My friend hyperfell lets me come to Pirates often, and I leech off of him. I’m there to keep up the spawn. He’s down there getting exp and moola.
No one likes getting Ksed, especially bowmen. Why? It happens to us all the time! Solutions? You can ask a friend to get one back for you. You’ll usually have some fun. Or, you can team up with someone. Try to get a sin. The exp drop is minimal if you’re around the same level.
Besides, doesn’t AR/AE look great?
Guilds are a good source of company, friendship, and randomness. Join one! Some will complement to other’s needs, such as APQ, GPQ, or just hanging out.
