Wherever you have a game that allows PVP, you are going to get wankers that camp respawn points.
This is what turned me off World of Warcraft. Jackass high level characters camping graveyards in low level areas to kill lowbies as they respawn.
Blizzard slowly tried fixing this, I think, by placing high level faction guards in the area to try and stop it. Though I’m not sure how successful it was. I haven’t played since WotLK and that was on a private server that didn’t have the problem.
The best solution seems to just remove the corruption and make the obelisk exude some sort of magic aura. The corruption AoE points to this being doable. As I stated elsewhere, simplest way to stop this is to lockdown any PVP in this aura.
Not by stopping it. But by punishing it. Any PVP kill in this AoE results in instant death and loss of all gear. You wake up naked wherever your respawn is set.
No warnings or light punishment. Just instant and harsh. With a couple markers near the outer bounds of the AoE, which could be about a 30’ circle around the obelisk. So you have time to load in, get your defenses up, and be coherent before you leave the circle. Probably also an immunity to ranged weapons buff to stop them from standing outside and firing in.
Sure you’ll get some people shocked as hell when they lose their gear. But they’ll also learn quick to stop doing this.
The only sure way to deal with people like this, is extreme and harsh justice. They won’t learn anything if you go any lighter than that.
Maybe throw in a counter on your character save file. That ticks up by one each time you do this.
1st and 2nd offense, you lose all your gear and respawn.
3rd and 4th offense, you lose all your gear and respawn with the effects of the Lotus, forced to redo all of your feats and attribute points.
5th offense, your character is completely and utterly destroyed. Your save file is wiped in the same manner as beating the game and leaving the Exiled Lands, without the achievement.
And a screen pops up just before it happens.
Your save is being deleted for griefing.
Thank you and have a nice day.
