QoL dont mean make the game easier! is the same actitude than here with "etiquette".

Just more protection to the same folk, nobody else can get the uniques because not part of a group so no chance of know when will be the hunt.
the groups hunting only vets and alts, only if you get lucky get blood from public slays usually the drops are reserved...

How is leaving it possible for people to watch the fight and get a drop of blood making game easier?

That is alredy existing code Tamat.

talking about "toxic" actitude.

Unique have an easy fix, dont let theme enter on caves and server wide reward for slain, so even if the same groups get them everybody get the drops.
Removing tomes and bones would be a nice idea too

I'm going to give you an alternative.

 

Make unique 'eggs' drop from other events, such as rifts or random digging like bones do. Make them super rare, sure. That person gets to do whatever the hell they want with the egg. Burn it, eat it, sacc it, or grow and kill it. Whatever. Make this in addition to hunting uniques. 

 

That way no one has a monopoly on uniques. Its been years and years since Uniques were released. The game is nowhere near as big as it once was. Let people get and organize these events. Problem solved.

"people" were left to organize these on their own, and some thought that filled wallets are better than more happy faces around the game. So that idea didn't work that well at some point.. or community lost most of their most active players and no competition's left to make the old mechanic viable, while at the same time reward is the same, even got a buff at some point scale/hide weight and tome/charge chance.

 

If there will be eggs.. I'd rather make them solo-able to kill.. than making, else we're near back at square 1.. having to hatch, feed and wait for these to grow, meanwhile it's possible to create new dramas around stolen from caves uniques, etc..

Also imagining average Joe vs unique does not seem like other than a horror story.

While if such eggs were something like champ troll trong and giving less hide for just the killer.. could be a lot easier to manage.. and opens more possibilities to play around it.. (selling, buting 100, slaying them all after breaking the egg if rewards are the same and age doesnt matter, etc..)

 

Only thing to worry is that.. un-human behavior will emerge.... digging all day on dirt/tar/ or whatever to 'find' such eggs........

 

Why the .. am I so sure, idk what happens with every new content and wurmian's brain and actions every single time new fun thing is implemented and possible to profit from?

The griefing rules change has made "freeing" these uniques now to be considered griefing. Any player could grow their own uniques in their own deed, pen it without contest, and gather a group of people to kill it. Or if they cannot/do not want to get a group, they can sell the egg. Or make a public slaying like anyone else if everything else fails. The only thing that would change is an added way to get uniques, taking away the monopoly hunting groups have on these.

 

I don't see how that can possibly be a bad thing.

 

Edit: 

 

Also, if you add the eggs on top of the random spawns (Instead of just replacing the spawns) it doesn't take away from the hunting groups. If the fear of overloading the market with hide/scale is a concern, then half the drop amounts for uniques and release the eggs at the same rate you'd release an unique.

Lol, I agree. As far as I know the possibility to breed dragons from eggs has been in the game and has been removed due to numerous issues.

 

I must say that I consider the unique discussion fairly overblown. The gains from unique hunting at least nowadays appear tiny, with drake sets on the market around 50s and scale under 200s, with private slaying groups usually consisting of 5-10 players (if niarja is right), tomes etc. in a similar range if at all, and a single kill being not sufficient for a full set, and tomes etc. only random on humanoid uniques if I am informed correctly. So the "profit" therefrom seems tiny and more elusive compared with, say, just creating and selling dirt or bricks to name a few. 

 

And I owe a lot of fun to those who set up public slayings during my playtime, and am hopefully looking forward for more in the time coming. I have a lot of respect for all who render services to the community, no matter whether working on public communications, or organizing events of whichever kind.

 

What I would love would be incentives for more public slaying such as, say (just a rough idea), guaranteeing the deed owner of the pen a share of, say 20-30% of the hide/scale loot, no idea how to manage it with the non dragon uniques.

It's still possible. Not worth the effort required.

 

Maybe now that finding uniques is almost entirely rng you'll find someone perma-penning uniques to do it though, seeing as they can get people banned for trying to interfere :ph34r:

Maybe someone shouldnt have been such a killjoy and try to grief players who are trying to pen/kill uniques countless times to the point where a document like this needed to be written up in the first place 😕

1 change i would make to this document which would be cut the fluff clearly define the changes no vague rules that make no sense unless you take it in the context of "add this to this and now it makes sense" eg the no alt thing
But thats me i just prefer clean simple rules over loads of fun fluff when it comes to stuff like that but besides that its still nicely written bit of stuff

for all those, who just want a game content of killing dragons etc, come over to epic! your skills transfer, items are easy to craft, i can personally show you the locations of all the uniques and we can all kill them together. yes, you cant transfer the loot back to freedom cluster, but once again, i would gladly hold it for you on epic! never been that easy, just pm me ;)
