I was playing a recommended quest today and got a Code Capture. I started killing the creature as usual since I have no idea how to capture, and another party member typed "capture" in chat. This blew me away since in all of my time with the game I've never seen anyone actually capture during a Capture EQ. AI killed the thing off before I could ask for some guidance, but this got me thinking.
I'll probably hit the 500 hour mark today and there are a few things that I still don't understand that I know that I should. Maybe someone here can give me some tips or if it's too much to explain, point me to a good guide. Most of these are Emergency Quests.
Capture - I know you're supposed to lead the monster to the glowing circle area and hit a button. However, I always get messages telling me that it wouldn't work when I hit the button for some reason. I play 90 solo, so I'm sure that doesn't help, but how is this supposed to work?
Time Bomb - ????? I have no idea what I'm looking at with these. My first thought was that I was supposed to follow the lines to connect the glowing thing to whichever button I'm supposed to hit. However, the lines from the three choices all seem to connect to it. Lines criss-cross each other and are all joined. What's the trick?
Lillipan messaging - I swear I'm selecting the same emote that the little guy is doing. Sometimes it seems so obvious since the announcer is saying something like "He seems to be greeting you". I try to wave, greet , anything that's close and I've never gotten this. Am I missing something?
Exterminate Mad Jelly - This Seabed EQ has jellies falling from the ceiling and swelling up. I kill them all and still always fail. What is the goal?
---THE BIG ONE -----
AFFIXING or AUGMENTING - I've watched a few videos on youtube but it's still as inscrutable as the Tokyo subway system to me.
I understand how to increase the slots available, but I can't transfer over any good affixes because when I pick good ones, the chance % drops through the basement.
I get these Melee/Ranged/Tech affixes but have no idea how to use them or what they do. Can anyone tell me what these are?
If anyone can point me to a good guide on augmenting / affixing I'd greatly appreciate it. Anamana's youtube video on affixing / augmenting didn't help. Maybe there's a better one?
In my many years of playing games of all types including MMOs, at 500 hours, I feel like I've always understood pretty much everything in games I've played. I love this game, but wow is it unnecessarily complex!
Thanks, in advance, for any info on these!
