I saw someone do a shout out thing saying KSing elites is not ok, now im not an expert here but as elites give everyone drops and exp, how is that possible. I really thought elites were meant to be fought toghether.

    It used to be possible to "KS" an elite in the sense that if someone swooped in on the map after the elite spawned and outdamaged you, they would get the extra bonus box (for a total of two) while you would get only one of them. At this point, as long as you were the one who "summoned" the elite boss (ie killed the mob that triggered the event), then you get two boxes as well. In other words, it used to be a thing, but now it isn't really.

    Other people might consider it KSing if you kill an elite they are trying to "hold" for their friends/guild/alliance. It can be especially annoying in the arcane river, since elite boss HP doesn't seem scale up the same way as mob hp does there, so most people training there are already strong enough to finish off the elites in a matter of seconds.

    While I understand it can be frustrating when this happens. I personally don't believe anything can be ksed. Much like I don't believe any players owns a map for training.

    All maps and all channels are public. No player owns the map and the mobs on the map no matter what people say. Sucks when someone comes in and does so much more damage than you, but that is apart of the game.

    You can't KS elite bosses anymore. When someone cries about that, it means that you came and killed it before his/her friends came. Which is their fault since the guy should've told them 'dark map x/4' beforehand and there is like 10 seconds before the Elite boss can be damaged.

    Doesn't really matter, all you might get is a defame.

    Its common courtesy if someone is training in a map to ask if you can join/take a platform before you just start killing

    I know how this feel.... I was training for an hour, then this guild with 6 people came in KSING me, saying "just doing dailies". I asked them to CC, but they told me i do no damage so i should cc....
