Obviously the numbers for this are all still fresh, but I'm considering adding ajackpot style lotteryto the LA in addition to the A M A Z I N G cashback rewards already being offered! We felt that the cashback rewards were nice, but felt too much like the codex - stale and unexciting. It needed a bit of a spark to get the people going! However, it will need to wait until:
1) MA finally answers my support tickets about getting these globals named so we can ensure tracking (please? its been weeks);
2) I get at least a month or two of financial data to work with, and can start crunching some numbers (the more regular hunters we have, the bigger/better rewards we can stand to offer);
3) and get some more feedback about mob maturity* level vs. mining so we can figure out what the heck the people want (seriously, tell me what you want)!
*Mob maturity is currently being lowered due to popular demand. We hope that this will allow our friends with lower dps, smaller protection capabilities, or simply want to relax and have fun without worrying about damage to join us more often without feeling like they have to watch over their shoulders for roaming Argonaut Leader death squads .
1x Molisk will be left at max maturity for some leader spawns (990hp/150dmg)
1x Molisk will be lowered slightly to allow for increased spawn of warriors/hunters (600hp/120dmg; 560hp/100dmg)
2x Argonauts will be lowered to relax the damage while maintaining approximate mob hp - aiming for mostly hunters (700hp/89dmg v. 1000hp/121dmg for leaders)
Miners!! We hope to see you join us as well - take advantage of the great MU ores/enmatters on LA 44 at only 1.99% tax! We hope that lowered mob damage will encourage you to mine (and hunt) with us in search of that elusive devils tail, azur pearls, or henren stem. Don't forget that these two mobs are fantastic for skilling any and all combat skills due to their high danger levels.
As always, please feel free to reach out and share thoughts on the LA. We want to include our friends in the decision making process to make OLA 44 your favorite hangout spot! Happy Hunting!!
