Toreava Posted January 28, 2010 Report Share Posted January 28, 2010 I was finally able to start my JE toon after fixing my machine. I was shocked at what I found in the newb area. Leveling explore has dragged to a molasses pace. A guildy defined it better than me: Slow respawn Too many different kinds of roids packed into the mining area. (Cargo hold cannot take all these varieties at once.) And a few other things that I forget, but people can add. (Been up with my dog and puters, so am too tired to remember.) Have people been complaining about the JE training area? I don’t remember seeing any complaints about this area. So if it wasn’t broke, why was it tampered with? I can’t bring up a command prompt to manipulate how I play. I’m stuck with what is there. My first reactions were emotional. The Jenquai Explorer has always been my main toon. The act of mining I’ve always called, “The Dance.” It’s a mesmerizing process – relaxing in itself. With the new field clearing bonuses, the spawns have been dragging. Mining has become far more of a competition than it ever was before. There is no need for a field-clearing bonus if it makes roid spawns concurrent rather than consecutive. What you gain with field clearing you lose with slow spawn or traveling between roid fields. There goes “The Dance.” Think of it in terms of combat in the warrior newb areas. Make it so: Mobs don’t spawn unless they are all killed. Mobs don’t spawn unless all carcasses are cleaned out. Mobs don’t spawn individually, but are dependent on all mobs being killed. And then there is the time you need to add for resetting mob spawn. Make it take minutes. Let people sit there in the newb areas and wait for spawns. Then: Take the loot and diversify it so those small cargo holds can’t possible stack more than ten items before they have to redock and sell. That’s what has happened to the Jenquai Explorer Now if there is some discussion relative to eliminating the JE. Just do it. There’s no real need to delay it. You’ve created soooo many interesting professions that the JE becomes unnecessary. I especially found it to be a disappointing profession after my determined attempt to make mine combat effective last go round. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
