    So I got the idea from WoW. They have weekly Battlegrounds for increased honor and everyone plays that specific battleground, so for Darkfall I wanted to toss out the idea of maybe getting everyone in a zone every few days. Here is some ideas below.

    • Every three days the location of the 'event' will be one of the four sub continents. Yssam, Ruby, Cairn, Niff.
    • While under this effect the continent will have a surge in Rare Node spawns, Chaos Chest spawns, city mine yield rates, harvesting loot, and monster loot has a higher chance to drop 'rare' items like maps, keys, runestones (maybe even champs could drop a bonus q6 gem or something) etc...
    Its preliminary but I think it gets the point across, funnel people into a zone for some good ole fashion PVP, use different means if you need as mine aren't the greatest examples but people always talk about shrinking the map or designating one continent for people to bind out of and I think this could be a way to do something similar.

    What you guys think?

    Simple, effective. I like it.

    Should also boost gathering.

    Aye that'd be another good reason to add. Would be dope on yssam/niff specifically for limestone/mahogany yields if its big enough.

    This was brought up in the past as a per zone thing. Does everyone think the entire island would be better or specific zones? (tiles)

    I think it might be more fun for a bigger zone. More people would be inclined to think they could reap the rewards in a bigger zone which might prompt more people to partake. If it was a single tile the lesser skilled players might not even attempt it as they know the big fish would be in the immediate area with a very high finding rate.

    I like it, every 3 days switch to a different island continent and rotates, increase gathering and drop rates give people to roam those areas. Increase chaos chest and rare nodes. Make and give people reason to want to go to these areas condensed people mean more likely encounters More pvp

    I think a whole island is better, allows for more people to come and still have a chance to not get zerged down, the little guys might think they can farm the lesser spawns and not be blobbed down, if it’s just a tile it’ll be mainly big blobs and the little guys won’t want to partake

    What kind if duration? Peak hours? Being lucrative it shouldn't be any time during the 3 days or some will have free reign.
