Seriously this infuriates me beyond words. Why should i care about the lvl 1-25 past these levels? Soon as more and more people hit max lvl they will move all their stuff to the higher lvl zones/towns and the lower lvl towns will be a ghost town more so then they are now.
With the way claiming a zone works now theres no incentive to stay with the lower lvl towns as investing your time in a zone can be a waste of time as soon as a different faction takes over and now the house you bought and decked out is worthless aside from extra storage space.
Just make the trading post global.
