Fixing the game for Pkers and Zoners alike...
« on: July 30, 2013, 12:38:40 AM »
I was thinking since having our healerbot is now not going to happen, many people are still going to want to be able to solo and learn zones. Expoundin on what corey was saying about by the end of the wipe having 5x oblitting characters, how about a more realistic approach would be this.

What would you think if the rank system was changed.
How would the mud be affected if the value of ranks increased exponentially?

For example - immunity to an element/gas/breath 6 ranks,
1dam 2 ranks, +1 spell slot 2 ranks

So by the time you are level 50 you are downright godly,
 and new characters are tremendously at a disadvantage to someone who even has only 10 ranks on them.  This further increase the value of older characters and allow people to really customize the class they are playing.

This implementation would not be hard to change, and it really improves the _base_ value of your character. People who are voicing the limit of elite items should be changed. More then one suggested things like having a systemshout when a rare item decays. Others have said lets get rid of lim items completely.

The people who are lucky and get to the lim 1 item after it decays or first for the pwipe will still have their bragging rights. The smaller people who didnt pop alot of lim 1 items will still be in perfect relation. However, boosting rank values will lesson the pain of eq loss from zones, or the eq loss from pkers.

The botters all remarked they learned zones that they had 0 knowledge of by having extra hands. Instead of having extra hands, just let our main character have the capability of getting as strong as 2 characters.

Kills the joy.
All classes have already been tweaked into oblivion. One can solo things whole MUD population would be needed to participate in some 17-18 years ago.

Ok, so you feel the rank system is perfect in the way it is implemented. Anyone else have a differing viewpoint on this?

If you become so buff through legends, then you don't need eq anymore...and suddenly if you are a high ranked bored or even naked char you are destroying the opponents and being called trash because you don't need to risk any eq to get eq.

Not even sure you want the eq at this point anymore though.
