    I think it'd be better if Runebooks weren't soul bound.

    People could make money off making and selling Runebooks to popular locations, and people could have multiple Runebooks.

    Just make them expensive to make and have them wear out over time.

    Just to be perfectly clear you can do this and that is the intent. Perhaps the word "Soulbound" wasn't the proper word. These books can be looted if they are in your backpack, but if you have one equipped that one book does not drop on death. You can still switch it out with other books though so it will most definitely be a thing to collect/buy/sell multiple books.

    The problem I see with that is that people will be able to recall to any marked location from anywhere with no risk of losing anything.

    So you raid a city to get a 3v3 and suddenly people can recall in with notice to make it a 3v10.

    Secondly, people could mark a rune outside someones city and repeatedly raid them with no chance for the defenders to stop that person constantly hitting their city.

    If runebooks dropped than at least people would have to go to a bank to get it and store it after using it, which would eliminate this problem.

    They can adjust how it works and people can just learn to adapt its a good system they need to keep

    Bit hard to adjust to someone binding a rune outside your city so every time you successfully defend they're back in under 5 minutes fully re-geared and ready to fight again.

    What a pain in the arse.

    I thought this game was about fights...the runebook system is nice, maybe bpg needs to adjust his use, with a cooldown for example.

    if they add a cooldown they need to remove the cost to use it

    Because it´s OP. Imagine a siege where people can recall again and again and again without limits, to the siegestone. The first time, your entire guild/alliance can spawn there in seconds, die , and back in less of 2 minutes.
    I am not talking about 1 hour, but maybe 10-15 minutes will be fine

    Maybe add a 20 minute cooldown to runes within the same 4 tiles or so. Rest no cool downs

    This is an issue. Mind you it would still take someone to use a rune, and use portal shards to keep coming back.

    I think a 5-10 minute cooldown would be good, and wouldn't really subtract from the overall use of the runebook, which is to get around the map at a reasonable rate.

    Very good BPG.

    Add 15 min CD and dont let people mark runes inside city walls, inside houses, or any sensitive location.
