Q3.1 How do I group with someone else?
Type FOLLOW (name). That person becomes the leader of your group.

Q3.2 How do I find people to group with?
Type WHO and see whether there are people online that are close to your level. Ask them to group with you (use TELL to communicate directly with that person).

Q3.3 What is the benefit of being in a group?
The sum of the parts is greater than the whole. You can support each other with healing spells. Damage can be allocated among members of the group, and you have an opportunity to double cast (see Combat below). The only way to take on certain non-player characters is to be in a group. Single characters would never stand a chance in such circumstances.

Q3.4 How do I communicate with the group?
In a group, you can GSAY things to the group (only).

Q3.5 How do I check on the status of the group?
You can type GREP to see a status report for the whole group, and GREP XP to see how much XP each group member needs in order to level.

Q3.6 What is a group formation?
There are many different formations available. Type GTEST to see your current formation. You can CHANGEGROUP to a different formation, and REFORM people to different locations in the group.

Q3.7 Why is this mob now giving me much less XP from a kill?
Well, there could be two reasons. Firstly, if the level difference between any group members is 10 or more, XP is severely reduced. This is to prevent powerful characters from giving too much assistance towards leveling small characters. Secondly, the XP from each kill needs to be distributed among the group. Thus, if you are interested in leveling, you need to balance the benefit of being in a group with the amount of XP that is distributed among the group.
