  3. Am I a jerk for abandoning this person?
Yesterday, I joined an SOS for the Silver Rathalos optional quest. And as we all know its weaknesses are Water (3 🌟) and Thunder (2 🌟). And is immune to Fire.

Now, before I jumped into the quest, I checked the guy's gear, and saw he was using the generic Glavenus Bow. I thought "maybe the game hasn't updated his gear info yet, because there is no way he's using a Fire weapon on a monster that is IMMUNE to Fire.."

I eat, and join the quest. I arrive at the scene of destruction to find that, my fears were true. This person was literally using a motherf***ing Fire element weapon on Silver Rathalos. So I decide to go along with it, thinking he would go back to camp to change weapons.

He never did. We spent 15-20 minutes going in circles because he mostly ran around the tight ass area. Which made it harder for me because I was using an Insect Glaive. I saw that we were getting nowhere and eventually abandoned the quest. Am I in the wrong?
Here is a wild signature in its natural habitat. Oh wait, that's not a signature...i-it's GRAND METROPOLIS!

No you made the right call. Sometimes I join an sos then switch my gear in the lobby before I fly out to the quest because I tend to do random searches.

Yes because that guy was me.

Jkjk

Nope. Sometimes it's infuriating to see people use dumb builds that makes no sense.
The only thing to do better would be to explain why glav’s bow isn’t good against silverlos. Help him out. But leaving is fine, the only thing he’s got going for his damage is raw, and glav’s isn’t great for raw.
Support for optimism: Nearly everyone I meet is some poor sod who doesn't realize what they've got, and I'm the worst offender.

Unfortunately some people will get triggered at the mere hint of you suggesting them to change their build.... Sometimes its better to just leave and not open up that giant can of worms.

This is nothing TC, I saw someone playing a Silver Rathalos SnS with Fire Charm IV on Raging Brachydios.

And if we talk another game, I saw people using Fireballs on Smelter Demon in DS2. People either have braindamage or the kid is playing their file.

And then TC would have been the protagonist of a reddit post about how toxic this community is or something.

I would've flamed him mid fight, CAPS LOCK, hoping I'd triple cart.

Yeah if he was an english speaker, i'd personally have written him in the game chat to point out (politely) that it was counter-productive to use that bow.

If he acts like a dick, then yeah, leave afterwards
