    I have a question will the +50% exp apply to the open area objectives or just the npc missions?

    Here comes the Min Level 14 Weapons and Armor. Stuff like a RR +4 Vorpal, +5 Holy Burst, or +4 Heavy Fortification.

    Only if we keep losing players due to disinterest and changes that upset the masses. On Mabar we have seem dozens of constant players leaving after the last update. Saddens me to see so many great people and players leaving. This is always Turbines answer to trying desperately to get old players back with the lure of loot and quick leveling to get them caught back up in levels. Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of level 14 items! I just see server merges in our future at the rate our server population declinations. Especially how it has been impacting the low population servers.

    Well I play on Lhazaar and it is pretty much the second lowest populated server and when I have been on playing since update 4.1 I have still seen 2 instances of Giant hold and plenty of people on. Maybe other servers are having a bit of a problem, but I have not seen it here anyway. Besides there was nothing wrong with the update or the changes.

    People will always lose interest in a non-required activity they have been doing for a year or so. I just think many are using the changes to the game as an excuse to do what they were going to do anyway. It just is more dramatic and puts the blame so to speak off of themselves.

    I, for one, am excited. I like +1 loot weekends, and they have improved my gameplay experience.

    How's that, you ask? Well, I haven't done very much looting at all since the last +1 weekend. I made enough money to cover all of my normal expenditures for about a month and a half, which opened up all kinds of time to do whatever the heck I wanted, instead of looting every third day to cover the expenses of the previous two.

    That, and I want to see some ML14 loot.

    I think there's a bit of truth to this. Funny thing is +1 chest level doesn't really excite me that much anymore.

    Extra xp? that's cool I guess, but how many capped characters do I need to grind the same quests over and over again for a set of dragon armor?

    Anyway I know some people will enjoy it alot, have fun I'll probably do some looting as well, but it won't be a big deal to me.

    I guess I don't see the reason that anyone would move because of this?

    50% xp and better loot amkes it easier for those on the edge of moving servers..i know there have lots of posts about ppl moving to argo lately so this will help out the migraters alot. If i moved to a different server surely it would be better to do it when there's 50% xp, yea? better loot too. It was just conjecture.

    Best time to move, is to move prior to the weekend, and get plenty of mid levels (4-6) ready to bust up to 10 over the time. As for what server to move to...not really sure the biggest is the best. Where ever your guild is going to head would make the most sense.

    Regarding the loot weekend- They are always nice to get, and I hope a few old times come back for a visit.

    Ah you mean like they won't be worried about moving because they will level up quick anyway. Ok I was missing that.

    Well yeah I suppose that will happen, but I can't really see it happening in a mass migration or anything. For the most part I think folks stick with the server or two they are already on because they know the people they play with regularily? Eh, might just be my sense of what happens.
