Soul shields, as a whole, helped bring new players in, and keep them into the server. It was a great addition adding soul shields to newer players to let them do their beginning quests.
My problem with this isn’t that.
Upon adding the defender people would buy a soul shield every time they went into the warzone giving them a complete inability to lose their items because they have the pearls to afford it. In a way, it makes the server a bit P2W because they have no way to lose their items when entering into a wz.
Here are some things I’d like to see added, though keep in mind they are just suggestions.
Make Soul Shields have a buy limit, meaning that they can’t just buy a 1hr soul shield every time they go into the wz, make it so they can buy only 1 or 2 soul shields for the day or some other time limit.
Make gear they get from killing other players without soul shields dropable when they are killed. To me, it’s a bad feature that a guy can go in with a god set and kill other players, keep their stuff, and have no risk at all just because they have the pearls and money to do so.
Make it so you lose your soul shield upon dying, though this isn’t the best one, it would make it so they can’t just go in, kill someone, die, and then go back in over and over again without any risk, or extra price to pay.
Add a way for people who don’t go on the store and buy pearls to get said soul shields with a different form of currency, say with gold, for example, 150k for a 1-hour soul shield and 2.5mil for a 24-hour soul shield.
Just some suggestions and my personal problem with Soul Shields at the current moment.
