Alignment free wipe? Thoughts and discussion
« on: February 14, 2017, 09:35:28 PM »
I'm not sure if this would be something anyone is interested in but it could be an interesting way to spice things up. No alignment requirement on classes or races. All mobs award xp/rank and items don't have an alignment restriction either. Just my two cents. I'm not sure if this would be something that can be done or if it would have anyone other than myself interested in it.

It would take quite a while to remove alignment flags from every piece of equipment....

Like I said. It was just a thought I had. Didn't know how feasible it would have been or not.

How about just reducing the xp penalty for some under-loved alignments, like Chaotic Neutral.  Seriously, who would EVER pick CN?  The xp is so bad that LG and LE characters can double their xp rate over them.  Also, should make it so DKs can only be LE - if you pick any other alignment you can't do the quests you need for legend - so why even have them as an option?

Obviously there is some balance to alignment stuff.  Paladins get huge xp buffs because they have to be very careful at low levels not to kill anything good-aligned.  But neutral characters get beaten by every branch of the ugly tree when it comes to xp.  When the neutral in a goodie group is only level 21 while everyone else is level 25 it just doesn't seem balanced.

Yes, there should be less xp for neutrals - they have more options for what to kill - it just should not be quite as prohibitive as it is now.
