heya i had an idea how to bring together older & newer players in terms of PvM, especially dungeons.
if you want to do a run what are the things you need? or actually what are you looking for?
-do i have gear that is strong enough?
-do i have guild mates that play the right class to support me?
-if not can i find another player with the right class AND is well geared enough?
-how do we split the loot? we sell all and divide it? we do 2-3 runs(depending on the players needed) and everyone gets 1 run for hisself? i pay him to support me?
so basically its alot to check and would i ask newer players which i dont know to do runs together? to be honest no.
-i dont know if we can do it
-i cant be sure he does what i asked him(for example we do 2 runs 1 loot for each, may he have time for a 2nd one? or may he take his drop and say he has to go offline?)
so the only way id do a run with a newer player is if he´s a dragon mage and i pay him each run.
so my suggestion is pretty simple
-remove ALL drops from the dungeon & dungeon bosses.
-let an npc spawn after the run was done successfully which gives you a loot chest for participating in this run(to every player)
-the chest should have a worse loot than the bosses have right now
-we could fill groups of 6-8 with less well geared and pretty much random people to do the runs and still succeed it
-no problems with loot sharing anymore and abusing with multiaccounts isnt possible because of the new restrictions
-any classes can do the runs no need to have certain farming accounts(1 warrior 1 mage can do it yes but also 4 random characters can do it even if you cant find a mage to support you) and all have the same benefits from the runs
-new players that are relatively new to the higher lvls without the pro pvm gears can join those runs and benefit from it
ill take the hell run as example since its probably the most common run in highlvl nowadays:
the 2 possibilities:
like it is right now:
my example, i do it with a guildmate that supports me on his buffer and i do the run pretty much solo and he gets 1x loot then i get 1x loot etc
-> 2 older players that farm together
how it could be:
me as older player looks for a group to do the hell run, lets say i find 4 players 1 warrior 1 assassin 2 suras
we can do the run without someone logging his 2nd character as buffer since the damage is more than enough to complete it even with semi good gears.
we could do this right now too? yes, but the problem will be about the loot, its because we´re greedy? probably yes if you farm you want to get rewarded for sure.
so it makes it very simple everyone got his loot in 1 single run(it will be less than before) but you dont have the problem that you have to do like 4 runs to get everyone rewarded.
--> new and older players can farm together and all can benefit the same way from it (MASS OVER CLASS)
so for a loot chest for hell run it could look like this:
the items can stay the same but cut the percentages by lets say 50%,
flamekey(100%) --> 50%
let me know your opinions
