I understand why you might want to change the xp scale. People were
making level 50 chars in a day or two. Hey thats great get rid of
power leveling. What i dont understand is how anyone is expected to
hit 100 mil after level 50 has been reached. Why not make level 50
mobs worth 111k only to level 50 players? That would get rid of the
power leveling and make the 100mil goal more realistic. So far not
a single char has reached 500 mil that i know of and that is what
the 100 mil is equivalent to with 20k level 50 mobs. Give us a break
here. Either make mobs give more exp only to level 50 chars or
lower the 100 mil req for leveling out of pkill.

Um, giving level 50 players 5 times as much xp for the same mob would
give them a very large advantage in pkill, because they could recover from
dying much more quickly. Lowering the threshold for unclanning seems to be
a better idea to me.

PLEASE consider changing the level to unclan. They
are right, it is impossible now.

Reaching 100 million may have been a little too easy before, although
it still took most people a long time. Making it five times as hard as
before means it is probably easier to perma and rebuild the character to
level 50; certainly it would be for non-mage characters. If for some reason
it is considered better for characters to perma or get deleted rather than
go for 100 million, well and good, but if not I think it should be
brought down to 75 million for unclanning.
Personally I would prefer to go for 100 million rather than perma,
because I would like to continue with the RP I have developed for this
character, even if I want to change to another clanned character. But
at this level of difficulty, I don't have the time, and its not worth it.
If I get deleted or perma, I then have to choose between abandoning
the character along with the RP (which can't really be transferred to
a different character), or try to work permanent death and rebirth
into the life history of the character, or else just act as though
permaing and starting again didn't happen. If everybody does this,
it takes all meaning out of the notion of permanent death in the RP
sense. But if nobody rebuilds the same character after they perma,
then it could discourage some people from putting much effort into
developing an idenity for their clanned character, unless they are sure
they will never want to retire that character from pkill, or only after a
It is a good thing for people not to switch clanned characters too quickly
IMO, but people will always want to investigate different character
types in pkill since that is part of exploring the game.
