For the couple of months i've been gone I've only seen 3-4 wakling around the lands. Looking at the user list there seems to be only about 60 "active" members.
Is there any reason for this?

Its like pretty much every other organization, slowly collapsing.


Do is going the way of the dodo (see what I did there?)

Awwwmh, so not true.

We're around, some just aren't overtly recognizable (not holding their Do blades or items, etc.). Others stay around doing stuff for their clans, or in the circle and event areas doing things for the path. Many travel very low-key around the kingdoms. Na' mean?

Since you've been gone, when/if ever you come back, take a look around beyond a few gates. I see Do all the time in community events, so there's a good starting stalking place.

Knoble was referring to the actual head count of the path and that Do has the least active members of all the paths. However, it seems to me that they are all pretty low (besides perhaps Barbarian and Monk).

I guess you ignored the second part of his post and I ignored the first part, Kensi. Good work.

Look at how many are registered but haven't logged on in ages (10).

Then factor in the alts on the same account (3-5 according to Michike)

It's a product of 2 things. Stupid path rulings and the game dying.

I guarantee that the Do will go under 50 before the summer (I know 2 Do who are not re-registering and instead playing the new Star Trek MMO). It will be interesting to see what happens and if they really do delete them as threatened with the quota.

I would imagine as we approach summer the path will be infused with a bit more energy. One does wonder if they are suffering from lack of interest, elitism, or high standards.

There I was


Probably not coming back to NF if you'd like to contact me talk to PyroAce in game.

One reason you wouldn't notice too many Do is they tend to not be as "flashy" as most other subpaths may be, and wear humble garbs.. sometimes even looking like poets.

Another reason is because they're so pro nobody's good enough for them!


--------------------
Funny thing about humility... Just when you think you've got it you've lost it.

Yeah but its been declining still. That trend is very real. Its just a matter of new lows still continuing to shock us.

As far as stupid rulings from subpaths being detrimental I couldn't agree more. I can't fathom how I was ever a part of a class that imposed rules which restricted the fun of many while promoting the enjoyment of the few.

That may be so, but the truth is that the game will only die when Kru decides to stop maintaining it.

People want to be able to wear vortex weapons, vortex armor, etc while hunting. They want to be able to wear polearms, etc. They don't want to have to wear spring crap in public.

whats the point of Do again? I wouldn't be surprised if the elder (geen) isn't just someone alt holding the position. Last legend mark was obtained 3 months ago..

The Do are able to wear Vortex weapons, armor in public. They're able to use whatever they'd like in hunting. If certain people decided to learn a bit about the path instead of speaking out of ignorance they'd know it has a lot to offer.

As far as why the numbers in the path are low.. it's mostly because to the general public believe the path doesn't have a lot to offer. It also appears to be one of the hardest paths to become apart of. When in fact it's just as easy as Chongun and the like if you put the effort into joining.

Uhh I've had more than enough Do's tell me Vortex armor and polearms are forbidden. But ok, its me that should be learning more..

I like my polearm so much it I had it engraved! biggrin.gif

If I was lucky or wealthy enough to come by a Vortex armor, I'd probably wear it too when I'm in caves. I know a few Do who have them, and who wear them.

Y'all should swing by the Do Question and Answer event sometime. smile.gif I'll make you tea and sammiches myself.

You should. Because Do are able to use Vortex armor and Polearms. I don't know why anyone would say differently.

A Do can use a polearm when he/she is able to forge a Do blade.

I am not expert in Do questions but correct me if I am wrong!

Elitism and wrong standards.

They are very proud of their super elite humble garbs.... lol


I hate elitism, I'd never join a path that is currently or ever has been elitist. I'm just too leet for that nonsense.
