Are you a returnee in non-119 gear who has no idea how to get past sparks gear?
Are you an actually new player who has no idea what you should even be aiming for past sparks gear? (Or what that little upside white triangle means on some ilvl gear?) I can help!

I've been offering the following as "welcome gifts" for my new ls members for a long time, but always felt a lil' bad that I couldn't snatch up every stray newbie/returnee that popped up in chat. :(

I'm also one of those irritated at the proliferation of mercenary services at the cost of actual group-play for those still at the lower tiers of endgame content.

So, simple idea. I am now an unmerc. I run a BST+BLM dualbox team, which can smash faces rather well. I can carry 2x cheerleaders at a time, so you will get vorseal unlocks along the way. I am offering this service not for those who are already established, but for those who actually need help. I'd also really appreciate it if trolling be kept to a minimum, since I am trying to do something good here. ^^;;

Prices for my services are as follows:

Escha - Zi'tah T1: my pops, your drops = 0gil
Escha - Zi'tah T2: your pops, your drops = 0gil

Escha - Ru'aun T1: my pops, your drops = 0gil
Escha - Ru'aun T2: your pops, your drops = 0gil (We will also need to catch one of our ls tanks in a benevolent mood to be sure of safe/speedy kills for some of them due to the adds. ^^;; )

TBH, I probably won't complain if someone (who's not struggling with gil) wants to help cover the cost of T1 pops, but those are only 6k/EZ and 10k/ER, and I really won't be happy with being offered more than that.
This is intended to be a non-profit operation.

As long as I'm prepped with KIs before starting, can do ~20x EZ T1 per radialens, so you should even have a decent shot at getting gear that you are looking for. ^^

I am not rich. I could definitely use more gil in general. I just don't care enough about gil to not-help other players who actually need help. Bring on the salt mercs. >:3

Contact:
I will try to keep an eye on this thread, will crosspost it to bgwiki forums, but your best bet is probably to catch me ingame. You can find me on one of my myriad characters, find a member of my linkshell FaceDesk who can let me know, grab a pearl for FaceDesk from one of the 3 city concierges, etc. (You're welcome to keep the pearl too if you are looking for a social/help ls. ^^ We welcome all.)

The many me's: Nyarlko, Cthuko, Mirajayn, Mikudayo, Hoardingmule, Naru, Ghutatan.
Cthuuko, Shantakun, Pettanko, Rorymercury, Mahirosan, Hasturkun, Klptzyxm.
If you can't find one, you can usually find another. ^^

Not looking to derail, especially since Fenrir does not have a large population, of mercenaries or otherwise, but if there is anyone on Fenrir that needs help with Zitah or Ru'Aun T1's...
I don't have mules, but I have a well-geared tank and hybrid DD RUN/ Idris GEO/ every Trust which makes killing any of that weaker stuff quite easy.
I could carry one cheerleader in need, maybe two depending upon their jobs. I just ask you come prepared with your own pops.

If this gains traction and you ever need help feel free to let me know. I have a master/mythic bst that would probably pair well with you. I also have nirvana smn or geo. And I have a Cor 2box that only has pet rolls.

I generally just piddle around and may get back into events at some point but for now doing something like this would be a welcome change to another 100 mortas.

I'm a pretty decently geared pup that would love to help you out. I can probably tank most anything, I just don't have much experience in escha almost entirely.

After the exceedingly rare event of myself getting into a shout group for an event ls, (rare because I rarely reply to shouts,) and spending all night in Reisenjima, I've decided the best method to ensure that no one gets lost in the chatlog spam is for any and all who are interested in this (whether you need help, or wish to be a helper,) to grab a pearl for FaceDesk from one of the Linkshell Concierge NPCs in Bastok/San d'Oria/Windurst. It'll be a bit easier to get things set up thru linkshell than random tells.

There is no obligation to remain in the LS for any extended period of time, I won't hold it against you if you drop your pearl for any reason, but you are also welcome to stick around if you like us. ^^

This
Me too

There are so many helpful people on Asura, often when I see someone asking for help and offer to help, I find they've already found several other people offering the same. But most people just don't even bother trying to help themselves or find help before resorting to merc. It's a sad state of affairs.

I'll add to this that I'll happily help people get Herculean Vests. I'm probably easier to reach on a weekend but the offer's there.

Yes, simplest way to get in touch is to grab a pearl for FaceDesk from one of the Linkshell Concierge NPCs in the three cities. Only restriction is that we're on Asura. :x

Mainly because they aren't braindead easy for me to carry people thru on my own. ^^;; On the other hand, I can knock out ~20x EZ T1s in an hour. That seems like a more reasonable thing to offer to me.

Just wanted to say thank you to Nyarlko. I sent a /tell and we were doing all t2’s about twenty min later. It would’ve been sooner if I hadn’t gotten into something after asking too. I’m available to help out as well Nyarlko! Great stuff.

Love everything about this! I've been doing the same on Cerberus for ages, but we don't really have many mercs (can only think of one) so players don't have the option. I hope unmercing can be as cool there as it is elsewhere. :)

The one thing I suggest to any returnee who gets free help .. be grateful! Don't just leave when ya finished, thank them (don't need to profusely) so at least those who helped get something for their time. You've been given a boost to climb over the wall .. so at least look back and pull them up the wall with you. Having good manners, being respectful, and even sharing part of your life .. it's the way to make friends, and you'll thank yourself later for building bridges.

Are you guys still giving out pearls?, I'm trying to get back into playing the game a bit more regularly but I find myself losing interest since my friends have stopped playing for now so it's a bit lonely.

I've been doing my best to keep the Linkshell Concierge NPCs stocked in Bastok/Windurst/San d'Oria, but either there is some sort of timer built into the system or a TON of pearls are going out that aren't getting equipped, since they seem to be emptying out every few days. :/

We usually have more 30-50 members online at any time of day at this point, so if you can't track one of me's down, look for someone in the FaceDesk linkshell and ask them to give me a poke. XD

The many me's: Nyarlko, Cthuko, Mirajayn, Mikudayo, Hoardingmule, Naru, Ghutatan.
Cthuuko, Shantakun, Pettanko, Rorymercury, Mahirosan, Hasturkun, Klptzyxm.
If you can't find one, you can usually find another. ^^

Great post! I have been inviting a lot of new/returning guys to my ls and gearing them up myself. Granted they might not be ready for aeonics or other endgame, I'm still trying to help them catch up on my free time. And prior to new folks joining, most of my ls is capped on Omen drops with the exception of bodies/misc. Ou drops they're now getting to come to omen runs for all the other great accessories/cards. I'm also taking people to HTBF runs for misc. gear/chapters since I run 3 characters myself. With campaign right now is a great time to help people get those chapters to reforge to +1 AF/Relic/Empy, as well as get those afterglow materials, and misc. accessories that still hold some value such as; ginsen, voltsurge torque, neretic earrings, cessance earring, etc.

Are you on Asura or leviathan? Is there anything like this on Asura?
