Good evening I came to speak for all my brothers of my guild complaining about the lack of more iron stones in the game and this leaving the game obsolete could have more iron in the areas please because and many players looking for the same resource pve server tepium
Iron too little for too much player
I have made a few posts on this subject, but I think the current problem is magnified by the server not only being a 'new to game' model, but also a choking point of players at the same levels of progress.
New players do not fear being killed in the disputed lands, because they cannot be. (this is a lie, we just don't have any griefers draging level 63 bears onto the new players, not that I am suggesting this. I really like the players being decent beings)
There is a 'near gap' in leveling mining at the end of coal, and the beginning of iron. While only getting 14 exp from coal, they can take a 40% chance of success to get a single piece of iron ore for big time exp. The server being relatively new, I suspect we have a lot of characters wasting the iron nodes to get mining experience. I know I did.
The good news, is that as players progress in mining and blacksmithing, we can easily get 20-30 ore per node with level 36 mining and a blue quality iron pick.
I play 10-12 hours a day (no comment) and while I used to mine for 8 hours a day, now it is down to about 2 hours a day.
