I saw this answer here which states:
If you're stuck because you're in a squad where no one wants to extract, you can leave the squad to be put in your own instance, and then leave using the extraction at any time.
Now, this is in response to a question about Plains of Eidolon, but is the above also true for other endless missions?
For instance, when doing defense missions, everybody get to make their own choice every 5 waves, but for instance for survival, at least half the squad have to go to the extraction point to trigger the extraction timer, and this will also pull everybody out of the mission whether they want to leave or not.
But with the above answer, does this mean I can click on my portrait, pick "leave squad", wait for it to reload me into my own instance, and then leave at my own leisure?
I understand I might be an eas(y|ier) prey to all the mobs on the map without my 3 squadmates.
Here's my question in a more direct and clear manner:
If I leave the squad, one one of these endless missions, and then extract, do I get to keep everything I picked up and get all the extraction perks and bonuses, without severely negatively impacting the squadmates?
in other words, If I leave the squad, on one of these endless missions, does it allow me to:
- Leave on my own accord, providing extraction is possible at this point (or even just finish the rest of the mission at my own pace)
- Leave without bothering the rest of the squad, they can continue to play waves after this
- Leave with all loot I've picked up during the mission
- Get the bonus XP for finishing the mission?
The reason I'm asking is that for these endless missions I was under the impression that leaving the squad was tantamount to abandoning the mission. Arguably, I can't remember if I've actually tried this.
