Add an area called the umbral mountains top right on the map ( you might change the location)
In this area you can gather umbral shards from umbral shards veins (mining)
Entering the umbral mountains enables PvP automatically
Bots will never be a problem because players can just kill them if they are gathering in this area
Shards that are gathered in this area are the same ones as we can get in a dungeon or from gypsum casts
The shards can be traded from player to player or in the market place
Dont even think about gating or limiting players somehow by only allowing them to gather x amounts or shards per day. I think you should have learned now what happens if you timegate or limit players in the game.
Dont add to much details or vegetation in this area. We want it lag free and high FPS.
Dont add any PvE monsters there that just frustrate everyone while gathering or while taking a fight against another player
Add stormy weather with blizzards so the area feels dangerous
Dont make the area look to red because gathering there would would just hurt everyones eyes like some zones in tempest dungeon back in the days haha
No buffs are working when gathering the umbral shards. No yield or luck affects the gathering result
Amount of umbral shards that can be gathered from one vein should be:
From a small vein: 5
From a medium vein: 7
From a big vein: 9
Make sure to like my idea and follow me on instagram, twitter, youtube and soon also onlyfans.
Oh and by the way please rework musket or remove its hitscan.
Thx for your time.
I like the idea of a PvP only zone, but not in this manner, I’d much prefer a PvP only zone that is similiar to other zones but you get more resources from everything you farm and potentially more luck as well? Maybe they could even make it so you drop half or all of the loot you farmed (just the resources not gear or anything obviously) if you die to PvP before banking it. I think this would be much more engaging, and would also give PvE players an incentive to go there. You would be surprised how many PvE players engage with systems like this with no intention of actually PvPing, as long as its worth their time.
it could be a good idea but it should be something diffrent then Umbreal shards, maybe something you can convert to umbral shard. And if this tradable maybe PvE player could enjoy it.
And lets say you can mine it in PvE flagged and get 5 for one ore and in PvP Flagged Like 10 rn.
Maybe some special mobs where other ppl could entcounter and gank etc etc etc
there is no strongest company in open world pvp. you cant organise your people 24/7 to be the strongest at one location and guard it 24/7. Thats not an instanced war and you can build different tacticts to fight each other.
