The only thing that I really missed was adena for my first tp to Giran to check the server so I know if I wanted to play here or not, but some player gave me like 50k so not even this would be such a problem.
But I would've rly appreciated 1 normal SOE and 1 Giran SOE(mb untradeable so no1 abuses this lel). The ss are a nice touch btw :)
You get those @ lvl 5 quest. You talk to 2 npcs and get 1 soe to giran and in giran talk with 3 npcs and get soe back to starting village (eg ;ORCS have into the city of humans quest).
Well, in a nutshell :
- Teleports are ok via Fantasy Island
- Could use like 15k SSD / 10k BSSD as starting back
- Could use some bind-on-character top no grade / D grade / C grade armor to hit to 45.
- Maybe 12X rate for lvl 1-20 , 9X for lvl 20-40 and normal XP after lvl 40. These tables can be adjusted to maybe lvl 50.
-> Server is old. Not many newbies start here. If the server was 4-5 months, would have been ok. Real question which a person actually asked me : "Q :How old the server is? A: XY months ; Reply : Pff..every1 full S).
-> All players are high level already with full gear, full subclass, full epics : so no1 farms at lvls 40-65 so they will just have no party.
If you wish to have new players, server must be wiped and a proper advertising campaign can be made.
No worries if many will leave, more will join.
I was just talking with some1 who started like 3-4 weeks ago. He was a bit pissed and asked me this question :"How long do I (him) have to farm to even barely catch up with the others ? Months? Years ? I don't think it worths investing this time here". Unfortunatelly, this question is correct. At the current age, it is more like a full pvp server low rate. On a 10.000x server, every1 stands a chance and are equal (same armors from GM shop) but here compared to some ppl that farmed the server for months and months .. you get my point.
