TERA PC - General Discussion: IOD BAM Party of 2 must kill 4 times amount for quest
MMOPG -- does this stand for Massively Multiplayer (but on your) Own?

Tried to bring a friend through IOD to give them a hand with the BAMS while I did mine, but the only problem is our BAM quests weren't synchronised.
My BAM order was Nagas, Hydras, Giants
theirs was Giants, Nagas, Hydras

And if you don't have the quest, the kills don't count, until you kill the bam type before.
And yes you can of course drop party and fiddle around for my bams but essentially, if u just sort of follow it you're doing
2 x Naga for double party, while only 1 person gets the kills. then later on you come back and do it again for exactly the same result. For another x2

so that's 4 x Naga, Hydra and Giants....

I don't mind if you have to kill twice the amount for twice the people. I'm not here to rehash that.
I want to ask why is this designed to completely alienate one another and deliberately avoid helping or partying to the point it's penalised x2.
Any plans to fix?
How bout just make it so that BAMS only count for people with the quest??

Take a piece of equipment off so to make your ilvl drop, u'll see the quests disappear.
Wait some 20 seconds or so, then re-equip the item u took off.
Wait for the system to give you back your quests: they will be again randomly selected.
Hope to get the same one as your friend.
Rinse and repeat until you do.

Kinda annoying and (again) rng dependant, but atm I think it's the only way...

Mhm o-o Actually you can take off -all- your gears and wait for a min or so, then put them back up, your VG will reset, eventually you 2 will have the same quest to do, hope it helps!

A single piece of equipment should suffice, as long as it's not the belt or any jewelery :)

I find IoD weirdly.... relaxing... after a whole day at office some mind numbing brainless bam slaughtering has the power to ease my mind lol :dizzy:
The "smaller" quests can be useful too sometimes: if I'm out of time 'cause I'm falling asleep and still have one or two vanguards those are lightning fast and goes for not wasting vg rewards :P
THANKYOU so much for this tip. We tried logging out to change the RNG order and didn't think about that.

I'm really happy there is glitch fix for this.
oh wow, didn't know that. thanks for the advice! No more aids giants for me!
you're welcome :)

Wtb tips to queue or do lfg with my wife for dgs or bgs without having to do twice the bams, even if we arent on same map/channel. At some points i wanna queue solo an hope we get in the same party.

Even if you're just helping someone, lets say you already did your dailies and want to help, you can have the person re-invite you before each BAM. The person inviting will get credit 100% of the time.

What @Yamazuki says it's true.. I do that every day with my bf.. He helps me in that way.
