    Default Wayfinder Heroic/Epic XP Bonus!

    Looking to start a new life, or a new guild? Interested in leveling more quickly? Wayfinder now offers +10% Heroic and Epic XP, now through the rest of the year! Also note that this bonus will be in addition to any other bonuses that may be in effect (like weekend DDO Bonus Days boosts.)

    Bravo!

    Excellent encouragement to help populate the server. +1!

    Gee. Thanks. I guess the rest of your paying customers who have put hundreds into this game don't deserve that, huh?

    Wow. Just wow.

    If the server is that dead, just close it. That is so incredibly unfair to the rest of us.

    I am not sure what happened in the last few months but I am really liking the new Turbine approach.

    More communication, no more dodging/avoiding tough issues and taking decisive actions to address player concerns. This seems like a good way to get Wayfinder populated!

    I am liking the more outward focus. Thank you.

    I hope that this incentive replaces setting Wayfinder as the default server for new players? Adding boosts to players who willingly choose to migrate over to a dead server is a much better idea than dumping unwitting newcomers into a server where they will get the impression that the entire game is dead, as that can be a self fulfilling prophesy.

    I am not on Wayfinder but I support this move. The people on Wayfinder didn't do anything wrong to cause the population issues. I thini it's a great way to get the server populated without risking losing players that like Wayfinder.

    I don't consider this unfair since they aren't giving the rest of us a -10% penalty they are simply providing an incnetive for people ot play on Wayfinder if they aren't already committed to another server.

    Well done, I hope this will make the poor server come a little more alive
    It's definitely an N-word.

    not a terrible idea.

    Not as good of an idea as merging this with another server.

    If it was +50%, it MIGHT be worth it. If I want 10% more XP, I just won't group with newbies and get a death penalty. Which is exactly the opposite of what you want people to do, innit?

    Oh, if *THIS* is the case, and the bonus replaces the 'default setting' for ALL new players, then I am much cooler with it.

    wow!

    So... is the pay to move server now available?? For a 10% bonus XP I'd be prepared to move a toon or two...

    Hey... that is an idea... how about a free transfer service again... give us a chance to transfer a toon or two to Wayfinder... up the population a bit? I'd buy that for a dollar... (especially if it was free)

    I don't play on Wayfinder myself, but nice move Turbine! I might suggest though that you let people transfer free to Wayfinder until the playerbase is higher there, AND for his bonus, make it 25-35%, that will realy help get new people onto that server.

    Good idea to attract players to a less populated server. Happier that I decided to start a character on Wayfinder. Of course this means I will be spending extra time on that character!

    Want to get players?

    Also consider a loot bonus, and perhaps even a 1% named item bonus, and you might even get people willing to pay to transfer their characters...

    Default Update this info to the launcher too pls

    Nice move!

    What would be better? Announce it in the launcher news! Before new people even choose their starting server.

    How can you possibly be against this idea? Anyone who posts something negative needs to re-examine their sense of entitlement. Just because someone else gets something good, doesn't mean it bad for you.

    This is the proper way to encourage people to migrate to a server. You get 10% bonus XP, but the downside is you're on the "frontier" and you don't have all the conveniences of "city living" on Cannith or Thelanis...there's fewer guilds, less activity on the AH, fewer LFGs, fewer capped-out characters to help you with stuff, etc.
