Thought / suggestion to promote party hunting.
I think we’d all agree party hunting is good for the game & server. It is fun to interact with people and work together. It’s a major reason why we play a MMO.
Zaj boosted EXP while party hunting over a year ago, increasing the bonus from 10% to 25%.
Even though there is a “bonus”, in reality, the EXP / SXP gets divided (by number of members in party), then a little bonus gets thrown on top.
I’d love to see the bonus go even higher, where players could get the entire EXP / SXP for the mob, plus perhaps the bonus on top of that. (instead of being divided). Other games I’ve played have had a setup, people constantly seek out others to hunt with. Understandable if this is asking too much, but a further increase would be great. Lets be honest, the bonus right now does not influence anyone to try to find someone to hunt with.
An additional idea to increasing the EXP / SXP, is to increase drops / adena while in a party (and party members are on your screen). Say a 1.3x drop/adena. That way when I’m grinding sky castle with a friend (or friends), we have a slightly better chance of getting some kind of drop.
Would love to hear others feedback, and see something implemented if you agree with any of this zaj.
