This is great suggestion and something that I hope really could be implemented as soon as possible. That even the amount of pick-up groups for Unchained, Kara Korum and Monastary are virtually gone (well, almost) these days are is kinda sad. Its bascially down to Slithering and Raid Finder.
That people are craving other content was kinda evident on friday when I had to say “sorry full” to a dozen of people for a Kylikki T1 drunken raid onf friday was weird.
If you, Funcom that is, have no intention to put in Shards in normal raids. How about, as suggested, put a weekly quest where you get 50, 100 or something Shards when you complete it. For one week it could be an Aquilonian storll down memory lane where we do Imirain Ravine, Xibaluka and Crows Nest. The next we would have to venture into the Paikang sewers and defeat the bosses in there and the third week could be a full BRC clear that is needed.
I know you have limited resources but I imagine, not knowing much about coding and stuff, that adding such a quest rotation wouldnt take to much money and manpower to implement.
If you intent to keep Raid Finder as it is PLEASE give us other ways to obtain Atlantean Shards. Now some people are just stuck in the same loop and farm Raid Finder gear to complete another Raid FInder. Far from me would it be to tell others how to play the game but I think adding additinal ways of obtaining Atlantean Shards would benefit all and maybe some diffrent LFG-calls on Global.
I’ll end this post by just paging @Mussagana.
