Although since you don't plan on helping kill bosses and communicate with anyone I'm sure you wouldn't mind being blacklisted on the server. Getting into towers itself may even be a little difficult with doing the Test of Regulus (thought you can kill a pH instead of the 5* and 6* versions). Being able to buy anything on Epona isn't necessarily true as the things you want aren't always being sold and some people refuse to sell certain things. Some people also refuse to sell items to people who are blacklisted on Epona. By all means it's not impossible but there are a lot factors in this game that drive players to grp up.
I just read All About Epona.
If you just play fair, avoid drama and dont scam they wont ban you. I will follow the rules of Epona and play solo that never talk, never group and never TRADE ( i just buy and sell in the AUCTION HOUSE).
I'm not sure why others thought you would be blacklisted for not grouping, you should be fine on Epona. If you do come upon a boss you can kill it with the other players and roll for drops. You could then get drops if you had people send them to you as that's not "trading" as I understand it. This might be a little cheesy but if you named your toon NeverTalk/Trade or something it would be much easier for people to know what your about. Or if you made your clan name that or something. Just a thought.
Not saying he is going to get blacklisted just saying it's a possibility. Things happen and if he isn't willing to chat to others and clear up a misunderstanding then there's a pretty easy chance of him getting blacklisted. But as he stated he read the rules about Epona and as long as that is followed to a T there shouldn't be much issue, hopefully. Anyways best of luck to the OP.
