This is something I've struggled with lately: what can one player do for fun, if they only have 15-30 minutes at their disposal? And it's not an idle question, but literally my scenario lately.

It's a given that in such a short timespan I'm not going to get a team going, so anything proposed must be doable solo.

The answers I've attempted and crossed out already:
  • Grind a couple of levels --> gearing up and trekking to the spot takes time, plus solo it's ... sluggish
  • Do occupations --> I said something fun
  • Scout for a boss --> if I find something high level, assembling a team takes time
  • Get some achievements --> not bad, although it feels like an empty activity since there's no global ledger or anything

So ... any suggestions? Or is everyone commiting at least one hour of playtime when you log on? :)

Now you know why I've spent the last few months as more of a tutor than as a player.

Do not assume that you speak for all just because you are the loudest voice; there are many who disagree that simply have no desire to waste words on you.

No, this is an actual question. What does it tell you, when there's no actual answer to give?

... that's not gaming, even if it happens inside Ryzom.

I think The Sims has better outfits, imho ;)

How many times can you bomb a pack of timari and run like mad? I mean, timari are my only enemies.

Often there's literally no one in PR, lol.

How many times can you do it before getting bored? I don't wanna be Yenno #2.

No. Either it delivers fun in small doses, or it's not worth my attention.

Yeah quit your BF/GF to play more ... and then get bored because even if you can play all day long there is not much to do in-game.

If I have 20-30 mins solo time I will often do a delivery run - well worn paths, some agro danger and a pile of dappers at the end.

Alternatively, if I have the mats to hand, there's a crafting mission that gets me a huge pile of dappers.

OK it's not all about the dappers - in the right mood, I will find a beach, build a campfire and watch the sun go down.

Change game dude if you seek 20mn of fun per days doing meta, it's not in ryzom you will find it ^^'

Even grinding dappers dailies have no purpose in short like long term (So I guess for arfur it's just the thrill of gaining virtual currencies)

Everone has an opinion, and of course are entitled to have one, but others are equally entitled to decide whether they choose to agree or disagree. Acting like a complete Muppet isn't likely going to change minds or win support :)

Playing Devils advocate, I guess the other way of looking at it is, it's better to do something, rather than sit complaining on Forums about not having anything to do.

First of all : if you only play video games for 15-30 minutes a day, it's because you're tired of playing video games, it has nothing to do with Ryzom. Like your real life takes over your virtual life, doesn't it make sense ?
Ryzom is not designed to play only 15 minutes a day, just like most video games.

It's a great idea.

Black Market ? Trade with other players ? Declare war ?

My favorite such short time activity is to help out others in whatever way then possible. That can be with advice, or simply with being around (for example in Silan, in PR etc) where 'normally' hardly anybody ever is or where it could make the difference between an oldtimer or a newcomer to the game happen to check in to see how lively things are on Atys in present day ;)

Lol.. Have some respect for the OP boi, you are terrible and aggressive.

Not everyone can have more than 30mn to relax a day, if you live at your mother home and don't have a job - don't push it on the OP ;)

Sorry, I didn't know he had a 14-hour job a day without a weekend off and a very busy family life (unless I'm wrong, it's not mandatory to start a family if you really like video games). And without a vacation.

Best argue ever. 200 IQ I would say …


Oh yes and another point : I'm not here to be mean compared to some, I'm just here to give my opinions.
