When Duty Becomes Difficult due to a Party Member Going Offline

When a party member went offline while in a duty and it does not seem like they are coming back, you may find it difficult to continue the duty. In such cases, you can dismiss the offline member from the party and use the Add Member function to find a replacement.

To replenish the party, first select Party Members from the Party section of the main menu and right-click the offline character to display the submenu. Selecting Vote Dismiss from the submenu opens the Vote Dismiss window. Then, select a reason for dismissal followed by the Commence button.

Upon the party members' agreement, the offline character gets dismissed from the party. Subsequently, the Add Members window appears on the party leader's screen. Selecting "Yes" on that window initiates searching for a new member.

Requesting Reinforcements

* Only the party leader can use the Add Members feature.
* Members can only be added when players have been randomly matched for a duty.
