Focused Feedback: Temporal Warrior, Instant Level 50 PvP Characters


Recommended Posts

Anyone know where that following Faultline quote is from?

 

It makes it look like along with the Temporal Warrior instant max 50s, there is talk of changing all the PVP zone levels to all be 50.

To quote Faultline. 

Quote

"change data/scripts.loc/ScriptDefs/V_SirensCallPvP.scriptdef,  data/scripts.loc/ScriptDefs/V_BloodyBayPvP.scriptdef and  data/scripts.loc/ScriptDefs/V_WarburgPvP.scriptdef, set var PvPCombatLevel = 50 instead of their existing levels, and restart the mapserver."

"I change the level of the spawndefs, so any mobs that exist at the right levels go up, yes. 30 second change, + half an hour waiting for mapserver to rebuild spawndefs"

"
finding the mobs that need tweaking and increasing their levels is the time consuming bit. but still a lot less work that ignorecombatmods and more futureproof"

In return, they start at Level 50 with all Incarnate slots unlocked, Incarnate powers can be crafted at no cost, and Patron Powers don't require the Patron badges.

 

It occurs to me that having Incarnates beyond the Alpha slot unlocked & crafting at no cost isn't that critical for PvP zones.

 

We don't have incarnates in most PvP zones (Alpha in RV). We aren't changing that, are we?

There is alpha enabled in RV, meanwhile arena has all incarnates enabled (though players often enforce limits on which incarnates are allowed to be used, but technically all are enabled)

Temporal Warrior, Instant Level 50 PvP 

  • They still need to provide their own enhancements, there's no easy mode for that. Because their own ability to get rewards is so limited (the only available source of rewards is critters in PVP zones) the expectation is that those characters will receive influence and enhancements from other characters that are PVE enabled.
  • The goal here is to remove the barrier of entry for players that are curious about PVP, but don't want to spend the time leveling up a new character that would be useful under the PVP rules.

 

If I have to provide finances for this new 50, then it doesn't really open up PvP for me.

I don't like farming, and what little inf I do have left over from playing a toon to 50, goes to a new alt.

That's all the feedback I have at the moment.

That no Patron badge thing could be used on nearly all of my toons.

The only reason I ever switch to redside is to do those mishes and switch right back to blueside.

So, and I'm pretty new so this is a guess, people who have a lot of Influence can dominate the pvp zones with their IO set characters? Characters with Basic IOs will be at a huge disadvantage? 

Thanks!
