Because the former thread about that topic got snowflaked to death, ill try to bring that up here again.
I understand that we need to put some effort in to complete the journal for the awesome reward, but I wish it would be in a way that is less frustrating.
Its probably not that much of a pain for people who have a non priest as main char and a priest alt, like the most people have. Switching every few minutes to the priest alt for a short moment to push a few times the pray button is acceptable and doesnt feel so bad, because in the next 2 seconds you are back on your main char and continue to play the game.
After i wrote the last sentence i noticed that i dont see praying in wurm as playing a game. Well i like praying sometimes, and even do that for a longer period of time (10-30 minutes), when iam too lazy to do something else, but thinking about doing that for months only is the pure horror and has nothing to do with gaming. When making bricks or something similiar simple it involves still a lot more kind of actions, like putting something in the inventory, combine it, working with containers etc. But only pushing a button and nothing else, for such a long time...
Now think about the ppl who play their priest as mainchar. Those ppl are stuck for the eternity with doing nothing else then hitting a single button. Well Wurm is a hardcore grinder, but that is the worst kind of grind any game in the world could offer. When you want to be wurm the worst grinding game in the world, go and implement more of that *beep* quests into the game.
Beside that, who rly wants to raise prayer that high!?
I try to keep that short:
Lib priest cant do global casts on the pve isles. There arent much blacklighter at all to group up with and some of them prolly never plan to go to chaos, because the majority of the wurm player arent pvp guys.
What would work if you join that single blacklight kingdom, but are there enough bl priests to link with? Idk and no1 should be forced to join a kingdom because of such a reason. If I would be the leader of a BL kingdom i wouldnt even allow them to join. I would like to have ppl who join also with their hearth and defend or work for the kingdom and its hard to trust ppl when you know they will leave as soon as they have done their cast.
Dont come with "play on epic and do it there". We play on freedom, and if you really have to go another server cluster so that a "quest" gets acceptable, then someone has made a very bad game design decision.
Also you cant bring your gained skill back to freedom, it just resets to where it was before.
And please dont change it to "reach 90 channeling". Seriously if i would have 90 channeling i wouldnt care much about that extra +5 cast power anymore. Would prolly still be cool, but doesnt worth that much effort anymore.
