May I just say, and don't take this personally... Can I kiss you? This is the single, most informative post of info that I've read. It answers ALL the questions I've been asking SINCE DAY 1 of DMS. It's so frustrating to find a crew, because it seems when I DO find one, they want an aggro. Or a tank. It sucks cause I DON'T KNOW HOW! Now I have a semblance to an idea of my plan of action.
Secondly, this tells me what exactly I can expect from the mazes. I'm embarrassed to admit that I've never gone past the yellow mazes.... Night Fright and general carelessness the chief causes. It may take awhile, but now I can revise my strategy and be less of a flailing newbie. I can also now give others the link for this and say READ BEFORE ENTERING!! Yeah, this thread makes me odles of happiness!
Let me know when you get your GM kite set up to 12.0 and I'll help you learn.
Until then, if you see me around feel free to crew with me.
