Progressive Rates & More

Post by Torta » Mon Oct 29, 2018 10:45 pm

Greetings!

First off, thank you to everyone who participated in our gameplay experience survey. We’re more than happy to see that you care and want this server to be a success; and many of you came up with great ideas!

Therefor, we will list a few upcoming changes:


Progressive Rates

We have developed a system to regulate the kill XP rates for level ranges where it’s necessary, due to a lack of quests, such as 20-25, 40-42. This change will be deployed on Tuesday night.

The changes will be:
  • 01-10 — x0.7
  • 11-20 — x0.8
  • 21-35 — x0.8
  • 36-45 — x0.9
  • 46-50 — x0.8
  • 51-55 — x0.8
  • 56-60 — x0.7
  • Exploration: x0.5

Normalization for Dungeons Rates

Will remain x1.0 for parties only to encourage players to group up and do dungeons.


Beginner’s Guilds

In an effort to assist new players, the Turtle WoW team has decided to implement a new feature called "The Beginner’s Guild".

This new feature will auto invite players into a guild, helping them easily find players who are also just starting out fresh. Once players reach level 15 they will be removed from the guild, and thrown back into the wild!

We hope this further strengthens the community, and helps make many new friends for your future adventures in Azeroth. Please, meet <Alliance Baby Turtles> and <Horde Hatchlings>!


Simpler Battleground Access

Speedy has stepped into the path of war and can now send you to the battlefield!


“I have HUGE, heavy balls and leveled up on 0.5 rates, what now?”

[DEPRECATED, CHECK BELOW] Answer: All current characters will receive a Turtle WoW Box in game with free Shell Shop Tokens, according to gathered levels. You can pick any mount, tabard, bag or any of our special rewards if you like!
  • 20: 20 TT
  • 30: 30 TT
  • 40: 60 TT + Riding Skill
  • 50: 120 TT + [“I like it slow” Tabard] + Riding Skill
  • 60: 250 TT + [“The Fastest Turtle on the Beach” Tabard] + Riding Skill
“I still want it slow!”

Answer: No worries! Speak to Speedy and get an item that will reduce your XP back to x0.5 (Hardcore mode).

If you stay at 0.5, you will still be able to receive the listed rewards for the next 2 weeks. The rewards will be changed once the 2 weeks has passed.

Choose wisely, as once you decide to level on lower rates, you will not be able to return to the higher rates.

We also will be sending mails to notify ex-players of these changes, and will invite them to back to Turtle WoW!
Thanks again for all of your input! Long live Turtle WoW!

Update (2 weeks later):

It has been 2 weeks since we first released our reward system for hardcode mode. As promised, rewards have now been changed. Here is a list of the new rewards you can claim for playing on hardcore mode:

Level 20:
  • Portable Meeting Stone
  • Unique Pet
  • Cool Shirt
Level 30:
  • Unique Pet
Level 40:
  • Fast Purple Tallstrider
Level 50:
  • Unique Tabard
  • 20 Slot Backpack
Level 60:
  • 250 Turtle Tokens
  • Swift Riding Turtle

Hardcore mode will now only be available up until level 10. If you do not select it by this level, you will remain on normal mode without the option to change.

We hope you enjoy the new rewards.
We reserve the right to change rewards if we feel like we have something better to offer :)

Riding Skill will not return as hardcore reward.

I was well before, and with these changes I will be fine: D I would like Tabernia to reward her with a unique item or mount, that no one else could have, nor buying it, she deserves it :D

Don't like the new rates, nor dungeon normalisation to 1.0x - not sure if it would bring more ppl here but we'll see - but if it is still possible to stay at 0.5x, it's not my think what rates would others get.
Also I would like to see the exploration xp rate higher (2.0?) instead of lower (0.5).

Battlegrounds at Speedy is great idea though! 👍

My question is: are there any reward for ppl who would stay on old rates? or only these rewards for ppl already on that lvls?

sorry for double post, but Edit somehow is missing...

two more things:
- are there ANY plans for crossfaction activities/features to fight with low population?
- are there plans to help/support RP aspects, such as official RP hubs for each faction?

Any chance I could stay at previous rates? Please i'm really need that. I'm serious.

I am conducting an experiment with this rates. Will I be able to rise to level 60 without stupid grind, but at the same time doing absolutely all the quests that I can do? And, which is important, strictly following the rule "The quests(and mobs related to this quests) should NOT BE GRAY" (Starting locations like durotar is exception, there is no chance to follow that rule in this locations).

At this moment I am level 40 warrior, and everything is going well. I'm already done with ALL quests in barrens, silverpine forest, stonetalon mountains, ashenvale, hillsbrad, thousand needles, and almost done with stv, alterac, arathi and desolace(both questlines magram and gelkis, lol, maybe it was only one point where i was grind, but it's justified because it's for quest). Also done with all quests in RFC, WC, SFK, BFD, RFK, and of course Gnomer (which was most hard by the way, because only few people from horde side wanna do that dungeon, i don't know why). And i'm still have uncompleted green quests somewhere! Not gray! Now i'm ready to face badlands/dustwallow march/swamp of sorrows, SM/RFD quests, and everything is going well.

Most time i was doing green and yellow quests(and mobs related to this quests). Very rarely orange/red. And NEVER gray. But at the same time i'm done with all quests in previous locations, really all the quests, i checked the databases.




Thats what i mean - if someone complains that he does not gain enough experience, that he has to grind or that he has to do red quests, fight red mobs and die in battle with them - he just does not visit many different locations with easy green/yellow quests, which is wait to be completed.


YOU DON'T NEED TO GRIND, YOU DON'T NEED TO FIGHT RED MOBS.
Just go to another location. Just travel, man! Visit the dungeons! Visit the world! I ASSURE YOU, If you have problems with experience - that means you just do not visit all locations, and do not enough quests! Do more! Travel the world! That's the idea of ​​the server, isn't it?

DO
MORE
QUESTS
And more travel beetween locations of course.


DON'T BE LAZY TO TRAVEL

And maybe winds will guide you

P.S. - Only thing i want to be changed - more wider questlog. 20 quests is really not enough. I want 25 at least.
And of course i dont want to change rates. Please i want to complete my experiment with this rates.
