Truth is that every trial that is the slightest bit pro-active gets tons of support whenever he / she asks for it. I think most in Agony deeply enjoy watching somebody develop as a PVPer and take great pride in helping along that way.
Being in Echo means I'm everyone's Trial. THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH OF ME TO GO AROUND!
I think also of what Quest and Rynnik say and think they are spot on: Agony is not a place that takes care of you like a soft blanket wrapped around your shoulders and feeding you when you feel like eating. However, it will make you a fire, hand you some weapons and tells you how to hunt for wild deer. And when you come home hungry and tired after a long day hunting without a kill, hurt your knee and your fire has gone out, THEN they will give you some of their food, bandage your knee and let you warm by their fire, give you advice, and then kick you out to hunt again the next day. It's not as comfortable as some other environments, but there's not really a better place to become a good hunter if you really want to be one.
