Decay is not going to fix any market problems in this game, everything is reimped so easily with so many high accounts. what we need is item durability, like in minecraft.
-> Remove enchant decay on items
-> Put a maximum usage on items (lets say, 5k, 10k, and double, triple for rare supreme) actions before the said item gets destroyed.
Pickaxes for example, destroyed after 10k actions
Meditation rugs, 1k actions
This will create a market for:
Tools that need to be remade
Enchants that need to be recast
What this means:
Nobody wants this, everyone wants to make an item once and keep it forever and re-imp it once every 6 months. (killing the market)
Wurm needs it. But is it really possible with all the old players being against this?
made once, never destroyed. How many boats do actually decay away?
Boats needs to have durability, based on the amount of kilometers they're used. Big boats higher durability obviously, perhaps increasing QL To lose less durability per k/m but still an amount that makes it so they're replaced every once in a while.
