    I think travel should be like UO. No more crying zerg, and noobs would be able to get away. Large scale and group pvp would still be able to get kills, but it wouldn't be such a certain death if 2-3 people ran up on you...

    Map alerts. Need to develop a system for map alerts, like a big ole ping broadcast to everyone in a 1000m range that shows someone teleporting in.

    Recovery time after the teleport is done... Whence you drop, you're down to 1/3rd all stats with significantly reduced recovery for 1 minute, so it might take you 2+ minutes to recover your stats. Also, 30 seconds of speed reduction and mount restriction.

    if you make it so recalling to a rune is a significant risk, you have to worry much less about creating hard restrictions.

    Make runebooks have a 2-6 hour cooldown but don't cost portal shards. You can also include a long cooldown for changing your runebook so that the larger 26 slot runebooks are still valuable. This will keep the runebooks useful while not allowing everyone to just port around the map infinitely with a 26 slot runebook. This will make having a holding network more useful. There are very few reasons to actually own holdings and the amount of porting I have noticed since coming back to the game keeps everyone in their cities and not out in the world. As of right now your game has devolved into farming select champs spawns and porting to villages. Lots of the map goes unused.

    First of all, p-shards are easy to get. so easy that i don't even know why p-shards is being mentioned here.

    I personally rather see runebooks costing more p-shards in fact. In order to fix the economy, everything has to be somewhat valuable. You can't tell me p-shards are valuable when ppl can make around 20 p-shards per hour.

    We need more item sink, not just gold sink. With just a usage limit, that won't help with making items go away at all.

    Sea towers. its convenient to be able to just teleport to the seatower but i think if you just wanna go there without the objective of taking the tower you should at least have to go through the process of driving there on a raft or soemthing.

    only risk is someone else near where you recalled too that can kill you.
