I think the aim would be to Bring players into PVP sooner but give them a reason to grind to make their Account better once they get the taste and not die in 3 seconds instead of it being a Grind for 3 - 6 months just so you can JOIN pvp.
Meditation path was a big one, that was a set time to join.
Weapon skills imo should go untouched. Body stats are fine as they are.
I mean if I'm on Mclovin and I come across Dadd, I want to scream in discord HELP HELP DADD IN LOCAL THAT ACC STRONG AS HELL, not, Oh dadd in local I can take that cause everything is the same.
I want to be scared of different names because of their stats, let's not even think about personal skill at this point.
And If I take down Dadd on Mclovin? Biggggggg memes dude, big memes. You don't just remove point to grind but you remove satisfaction of a kill.
I've killed people and felt no satisfaction, cause i knew their accounts were average, but I've killed accounts that i shouldn't be killing and it's just made my month, really don't want to lose that feeling.
It's just the items and certain Requirements outside of it..Like hell horses are a MUST. if you're a newb on a regular horse, you can't out run, you're not gonna out damage, your horse will 100% go down cause it's regular vs hh,
that makes it a STRONG requirement.
Tomes, strong requirements.
MM, strong requirements.
Like remove things or tweak things like this - Why not give everybody the hell horses but keep the taming, why not remove all HH and just have everybody ride regular? It does a lot for us vets too, things Slow down, hh are just too fast, too strong.
I'd have us all walking tbh, i think that really helps the "gap" because strong will help the weak with mobs, travling, etc..
But yeah I'm with you on the stats, i want to grind to get certain things over others. Not this MM cash market or tome cash market. I don't want to have Requirements like HH which newer players just can't obtain without joining the big bois, cause of Animal Husbandry, Control, Taming.
So im rambling but thats my view
