    So as everybody knows, every now and then I drain the think tank that my allies and I have been stocking up on a really good idea we've had. Most recently, I've been speaking with them on the problem of the current PvE situation, and we've all reached an agreement on what the three main problems are:

    1. Many mobs are far too difficult to kill

    As best said by the Villain Inositol Rex the Exalted Vindicator, most monsters in darkfall are incredibly difficult. They often times have too high health while dishing out unparalleled damage in an unrelenting fury, much like Rex's father did in order to beat out not just the left handedness, but the red headedness he now hides under a cool hat. Now, the only way to make monsters beatable is to try and create an identifiable, logical chain of spells that gives the player a chance. Now, you want to keep some of the risk involved, so each monster should do damage equal to the players current health points upon a successful hit, parry or not. In order to make monsters more fair, however, all spells and melee abilities should be replaced by a single ray that is castable once per monster life, giving players a chance to dip, duck and dodge their way out of sticky situations before orally invading each monster.

    2. Monsters give far too much loot

    This is perhaps the greatest feat that New Dawn had, in that mobs gave so little loot and so few valuable items that the most efficient training method was to meditate archery while masturbating in the background. As monsters in RoA just simply drop too much of each resource, you'll find almost every mob spawn in the game jam packed with players fighting over the chance to loot just a single mob, which will more than pay for a game time token with todays costs. What I suggest is to remove monster loot entirely, and add all loot to theyril chests with a 1/1000 roll for each individual item, with a cap of 5 total items received from theyril chests. Gold should be removed.

    3. The difficulty of looting skillfully.

    Perhaps the biggest challenge of all, many mobs are a major nuisance to loot once you are able to finally kill them. Add a fucking loot all button please.

    I hope that these changes will be looked at and debated internally before being put into the game. If you need anything please send me a private message over the forums and we can deliberate over the specifics at my current rate of hire, which will be 100 nithron coins per message I send.

    This is the type of thing that would be good. Loot all pve button somehow with a little charge for it. I would pay for it.

    Mobs do not drop too much loot lol, what the fuck he's definitely trolling.

    Gotta say it, I disagree with basically all your points.

    Mobs are just right as is, especially with scaling.

    The loot they drop is good for me. You want gold you farm gold mobs, you want regs you farm mobs with regs, you want chanting mats you farm whatever quality your after.

    Looting is easy.... You click something once and goes into your bag. I don't want to loot all, most the time I don't pick up everything.

    I agree pve needs some love but there are better ways to attract players to mob spawns.

    Don't think he's trolling... Maybe high? Lol

    Just give us an auto-reagent button in our bank already. Leave the mobs alone and focus on more important things

    Meh, I'd pay for it. It's not really a Pay to win feature so why not? Yea someone can loot faster but if you kill them you still get said loot.

    it has nothing to do with that, it has everything to do with being a basic feature in every single modern mmo. not a paid luxury.

    Good point, actually I change my mind. I do NOT think it should be in the shop unless the game is Free to Play even then there are much better ways.

    If it was Free to Play I would actual say sure. Everyone would pay the money for it and you do not need it to play. Help line dev pockets ;)

    Truthfully they would just have to add the ability to purchase bank storage for cash. Say 10$ 100 items.

    No need to ever have sub cost again because tons of people would buy slots every time their bank filled.

    Baked as hell on a day off rambling fuck!

    I agree with you it should not be in there but see BDO it has paid animals that loot for you, so it’s actually not a basic feature in the newest mmos.
