New Mob Type in the Barrows!!

It is a social mob, often seen wearing epic armour with grey con sitting by it's side. Known to sit at xp camps in the Barrows for hours on end chain killing everything that spawns.

Sadly the Barrows doesn't just contain one of these new mobs, just last night they were to be found at:-

1) vigilant souls;
2) phantoms;
3) one camping wizards AND advisors;
4) celts.

This while full groups of regular xp'ers give up and log.

Not a flame but a comment - if this continues for the long haul we could be even more gimped as a realm than we are now, and that's saying something :(

Ive been known to powerlevel/pharm teh phat lewt but I do it early morning normally...

I agree, the powerlevelers need to respect the XP'ers who want to use that spot

heard a fair few people complain about this, but what can they really do? they need the money; there's only certain good-loot green cons to them.. no easy solution.

Indeed, lets start a campaign to move the new mobs to another dungeon! Anyone for HoC? :D

I dont know how feasable it is, but couple of other games I've played have had the same zone accessable multiple times, so you'd have say a blue, green and red barrows, each identical but tripling the number of mobs/spots while essentially requiring much less development for Mythic.

Means three entrances, and might be a issue for some people but if overcrowding is a problem seems a simple quick fix for popular dungeons at least. Obviously wouldnt work for DF/HoC though but dont seem to find ppl powerlevelling there.

powerlevling in DF is dangerous... you get jumped by giminfils, kung fu friars, bucketheads and whatnot.
Good rp though :)

Gimpthanes are good RP for infs too unless they use IP, slam and then laugh at your corpse despite the fact that IP saved their ass :)

My solution: do not allow greys to receive any XP in a party.

Example:

- Gimpwizzie lvl 50 cannot get RPs in emain so decides to roll l33t uber inf. He can't be arsed learning his class playing it properly, or use his social skills to find a party and get a better XP rate, so heads off to the Barrows. In the present system the gimpinf gets XP, but under my system the gimpinf would have to be lvl 36+ to receive any XP by being partied with Gimpwizzie.

Alternative solutions:

- make advisors, spectral wizzies BAF or cry for help :)
- put lower level cap on some dungeons. For example, do not allow players under lvl 25 to enter Barrows.

Powerlevelling, fair enough BUT a new rule should be added to the CoC: Priority to groups over power levellers.

powerlvling and buffbots destroys the basic original idea of the the game imo...
its a social game, you play with you friends both in rvr and pve. If you dont you might aswell go play quake or some other game.
and powerlevling, well... i do understand it but i would never do it. personaly i want to get to know my charecter before i hit 50. If you find lvling and socialising with other ppl on you way to 50 so damn boring, there is no point i playing, is there?

A query

I'm not really a powerlevelling fan, at least in theory.

However, another person recently took me to Avalon City, and the two of us (Him Lvl 50 Paladin, Me Lvl 33 Paladin) put each other on Guard and fought the Mobs that he pulled. It was pretty safe for me, as I rarely got aggro, and I guess I helped by blocking 5/6 blows per fight, doing some heal chant twisting, and doing a small amount of damage. Still felt pretty much like powerlevelling to me, though, as I gained a level very quickly.

Thoughts ? Is it, in your opinions ? Or would it only be if I'd sat in the corner and done nothing ?
