@Milk You're not "lowering any drop rates" that person was completely dumb, they are talking about that unnoticeable drop rate boost. that for some reason idiots think is a 300% boost or giving it far more value than it actually has.
I too only party with my alliance or friends since i actually trust them (mostly) as i said earlier, just ignore them, because trying to reason with them just ends up making your head hurt because they more or less are angry you make your own decisions. and will attempt to throw guilt-trip attempts at you. Some people are children mentally or actually.
It got to a point that any dumb ass who makes too big a deal and starts raging that you don't do what they tell you I just straight up block them. This isn't the first game i've played where people get mad you aren't a push over.
