My wife and I don't typically duo because while she likes to take her time and explore everything about a zone, I'm generally on my fifth alt through the area and just want to get done. So I'm rushing and she's meandering and we tend to get frustrated with the pace the other is setting.That's generally been the case when duoing with just about anyone, in face. I just quest better on my own.The exception was a guildmate who was often up at the same time as I was (early AM) and who was often doing dailies at the same time as I was. We worked well together (she plays a hunter, I play a shadow priest), got along well, and spent several months logging on every morning to do dailies and achievements together. We even started leveling a couple of our lowbie alts together, going from 20-ish to Outland together. Eventually her work schedule changed and we stopped doing dailies and leveling with one another, but we had a lot of fun during the time we spent together. Part of it was that we worked at a similar pace. The other part was that we had compatible goals in playing the game (complete dailies, complete achievements, complete leveling zone), which helped immensely.Having a compatible pace is vital to working together. But so are compatible goals.So why not find a compatible goal so you don't have to 'take turns' doing things?
