premades are ruining pve raids too. I always ask random people if i can join their raid but they always claim to be full of guildees. Its clear that their guild is just exploiting the respawn timer of bosses to kill them every week for momentary gain. How can this be allowed?
And on the same topic, 2 good pvpers should not be allowed to be friends. I personally refuse to group with anyone i know, because it would most likely upset server factional balance and cause the game to implode.
My assassin has non-augmented recruit pieces but i still make sure to never group with friends, just in case.
