Ever since Spring Robes/Spring garb got ugly, Do style has gone out the window. I blame the new client haha.

Elitism and wrong standards.



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

I love it. I get drunk on it. Elite paths are the only paths. Dog paths and dog food are for plebeians.

That said, you might be right about wrong standards. I briefly tried joining the Do some while ago, and was rather frustrated by walkers and guides who didn't roleplay, just assigned me reports/questionnaires. I had a Long spear engraved 'fishing pole,' and it was used only as a fishing pole. It was insisted I never carry it because it was a weapon, despite me roleplaying it was a fishing pole. I think I also had to use Spring garb and not Spring robes, which I had worn up to that point. Rules not roleplay.

An isolated instance, perhaps. Whatever the case, it wasn't for me.

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!

Do can wear polearms at a certain rank as snikrot said.

Do can wear vortex armors while hunting or in PK areas.

Do can wear vortex weaponry under the same pretense as vortex armor, although we are known to wear them in public if at the same rank as when we can forge a Do blade.

We do wear regular clothing while NOT hunting or battling in arenas, because its ROLEPLAY, why would you wear a full suit of armor, sword and shield, for a trip to the market! its nonsense.

Any other silly myths and rumors I can clear up?

Besides, maybe I'm RPing some poor sod who's got no home, and is living with what he's got on himself.
I've heard it's easier to become a Do now (easier than it was 6-7 years ago anyway), actually thinking about
trying to get into that exclusive club =/

Yeah all I do on my Warrior (and poet for that matter) is duo with the opposite.. and Do's are king of the Duo's. I've been thinking about joining too, when I start back playing that is.

You can't spell Duo without.. u in the middle of a Do!

Yeah I dunno where I was going with that one.. but I'm sure with more thought you could turn that into a better phrase!
Maybe I'm just assuming... but you know what happens when you assume! tongue.gif

Oh how misunderstood the path is. Always has been, always will be. Whenever someone doesn't understand something they immediately seek to call it "weird", "wrong", or "Elitist." Or whatever other word people want to invent to try and categorize something that they just don't get; and usually haven't bothered to try and understand.

The Do Path was the only thing that kept me in Nexus for a very, very long time. Once carnages died, I had nothing else left. Sadly even making Master (which had been a goal of mine for years) wasn't enough to keep me on the sinking ship that is NexusTk.

Shame.

Nice poem Brancrese.

You show true understanding of the Do spirit:
- insulting people
- speaking poorly of people and their creations
- shaming people with less knowledge and understanding than you
- making assumptions wide sweeping assumptions
- flaunting pride
- etc etc

You are a true Do Master.

Of course you're OOC on these boards and your character and its advancement IC should not be judged by your real life abilities. Should your real life patients be a measure of your character's patients anymore than your real life ability to handle a moon blade measure your character's ability to handle a moon blade? Who's to say (other than the OOC enlightened Do, of course).

-shrugs-


It is all still fun and games -- no worries. My apologies if my sense of humor causes you to cause yourself strife. If someone doesn't cut it, it is their own fault for caring what you think and for wanting to walk with you anyways? Especially when they are worthless and not nearly as magnificent as you.

-sigh-


Shame... LOL

I have this problem that results in me getting enjoyment out of throwing rocks at people who throw rocks at people throwing rocks for people throwing rocks.
It is like hating haters for hating,
it is a vicious circle,
and it is good times -
if you don't take it too seriously....

oh, and if you don't throw real rocks lol

I thought I'd have a wack at this before anyone has reread it 15times to figure out what the devil your trying to say.
First of all, all you've done so far, is insult and belittle the Do path, for what you say they do regularly. Which apprently to you is insult and belittle people for being less then they. Which I've never seen, and I've been around alot of Do, seeing as my main character is one. But maybe that jades me to the light of you wide 3rd partied wisdom.

Second of all, YES I do believe you patiance translate into how your character has patiance in game as well...YOU PLAY YOUR CHARACTER(well some of us do nowadays) But still, you dont need to be proficient irl at wielding a sword to be a Do, dont be daft.

Secondly, Do never feel above anyone, we are a tight nit circle mainly because there arent many of us. And that is becuase comparing our spells to other subpaths, most players choose to be those paths(barrrbs!)
