Rest system

Postby iSylver » Mon Jul 08, 2013 1:38 pm

Obviously there been a lot of talk about a rest system and we are currently talking about implementation.

What I want to know is; what do you think a rest system is?

Do you think it should be exp based? (Gain stats quicker for certain amount of exp)
Do you think it should be based on a timer? (Gain stats quicker for a certain amount of time)

All opinions welcome

Faster exp is pointless without faster stats. Id say if u can implement a system that gives u a % of rested per % of offline with a maximum of 1 or 2 levels worth of rested that would be good. Will also encourage people to olay both races n save for rested... (dunno if thats what ur looking for)

Give the user a X amount of rested exp/stats over a X period of being offline. Then Lock the rested exp/stats to 1 lvl based off each lvl's exp calculation and stat progression of a mob suitable for X lvl.

Keep the idea flowing, we need more input from people still playing hardcore.

Wouldn't it force people to stay offline to get rested? No one would lvl without it :?

Not if its implemented correctly to only give a bonus to the more casual. The core audience for a rested system is for casual players to have a little bonus and to help catch up by a fraction, not by a significant amount.

I do hope you know that if it isn't time based it's yet another reason not to be a mage.

in most games you gain rested exp even when you are afk in major town.
If by gaining double exp+stats then 1st option is the best but it should not exceed more than 50% tbh.

I think experience based instead of time. Also like the idea of gaining it in towns.

Edit: With gaining rested xp from being offline people will log off to gain the bonus. With it still being gained in town people can still chat / go fight in the arena and make the server look busy just like old times :)
