Looking at the map. One realizes it’s actually relatively easy and fast with certain professions to complete the map even with low level characters.
It’s just 6 waypoints and 6 PoIs. No vistas, no Hero points.
Maybe there could be a bit more points there. Just 6. 3 vistas and 3 HP, to make the map a bit more interesting and in line with the rest of maps, and so its completion rewards don’t get reduced or removed if people gets the gist of revealing this map fast with lowbies, and starts overfarming that map’s completion or something. Just add a few extra points. The map gets a bit more pizazz, and it’s not easy to farm, so the rewards can stay nice.
Here’s some examples of what I think could be fitting Southsun points.
I am 100% in favour of any enhancements to Southson, especially story related, new events or any of your suggestions.
Southsun is deserpately in need of an improvement – both to the meta merchant format and to event numbers in general. For map completion, I would actually suggest 6 hero points, so that the number of hero points obtainable without HoT is 220 (currently it is 214).
My ideas for hero challenges:
As for Vista locations:
- Updated the map completion rewards for Southsun Cove to better reflect the effort required.
What I feared came to happen. I hate it when I’m right about bad prospects.
Still, I think it isn’t late to still make the change, give the map more points that would definitely put low level characters in mortal danger so it isn’t a walk in the park, and keep its decent rewards.
Aw, man. I have 100% Southsun completion on every single one of my characters, but I never got around to actually going there with them after the change to get my rewards. Only went there with 1 of my 6 characters.
RIP 10 free exotics ;.;
It wasn’t necessary to go to Southsun on each character for me. Just had to log in. On the other hand they were all affected by the 100% world completion bug that prevented them from getting the rewards on HoT’s release.
