    Now Dev team, i'm sure you allready thought about this and Shame is just a test.

    How about adding something along those lines for all Mobs, ie even poor old ogres and mongbats.?

    Admit it, when was the last time you actively killed a troll or mongbat ect. I dont mean running past and kill it by default cos your big and powerfull now. I mean actually killed it and opened the corpse to get the gold out??

    I really had to think and i cant say i did atall this year...poor old mobs.

    true.

    BUT... i was thinking the other day, about the fel thing.. Intensities are higher in fel.. ok fine. so some people will be lured to fel.

    Now.

    For now its just in Shame.

    At first I thought "Why not put this in every dungeon?"

    Then I realized "Wait a minute, no. Let's keep it in Shame only. Let's create a NEW pvp hotspot. If we put it in every dungeon, theres no hotspot, and the excitement of "should we got to shame?" is vanished, because theres no way for the reds to be in every dungeon at once.

    I dunno. Anyway. I think it should remain Shame only.

    Shame (the idea) seems more like an incentive for thieves than PvPers, to me. I mean, PvP will happen, but where is the central focus? One of the three altars? Will be interesting to see if the initial reaction will remain a "hotspot," but I guess if you can get an uber arty w/o curses then it really is the most valuable place to fight over...hey, might be a good time to sell luck sculptures ;P...speaking of which, do 10th anni items still drop in Shame? I only killed a few on Test so far. Would be funny to get a luck sculpture while killing stuff there.

    In the patch notes and in dev comments the plan appears to be to make this system universal over time. Including doom.

    Could even add it to the Virtues.
    You find an item on a various mob (any mob not just tierd) and it starts a quest when clicked on to return it to ......... and rewards is a bit of Honesty. like the items on the floor at moment.

    Lol could also claim thats how the mobs end up with swords and stuff when they dont use them. They pick up lost or stolen items off the floor around Britannia.

    The problem is the whole lured to fel ideal. Loot and rewards have not been what has kept a load of us out of fel.

    Ya keep thinking the reds need the fish in a bucket line of thought. Need action? Lets have only one champ spawn area in the brit fields. And the Harry will only be spawned there with a shard journal message every 5 minutes till it is killed. Why should thieves have to run all around to find a target.

    They already said in time it will be in all the old crawls. And as someone had realized about a Harry in the New Shame. After all the old dungeons catch up a Harry will be a greater challenge in the days to come. I feel for the new players in the future looking for a cheep stat scroll. I can see the complaining about players spawning Harry and not doing it because he spawned in the harder dungeon area.

    I will go to fel, I will pvp, BUT... I will not have a single dungeon camped by one big guild all day. No resource in the game should be horded.

    To be honest the only thing that ever stopped me from going to Fell isn't the reds or stealing, it was the dead trees and skulls ect everywhere and rubberbanding when you run through NPCs without enough 'spirit'.

    don't know about Shame in particular, but they do still drop, got one a couple days ago, on my vendor 100k/1500pts.

    Fel Shame will be raided 24/7 until they put the new system in other dungeons too so the thing is not an incentive to go to felucca but to get slaughtered in non consensual pvp. Which is perfectly fine for me, i'd get used to buy powerscrolls, i'll do the same for new fel-only items (if that's the case because i haven't understood if the difference for the new loot system is a matter of chances or it has something to do with maximum available intensities too).
