There is absolute no purpose have those things damage players in PvE servers, they are exclusively used to grief other players. People use them to block passages, obelisks and important areas, remove the damage and many blockades will be much harder to do, people can simply climb them.
That’s not a bad idea for PVE to end the blocking of POI
Yes… because of palisade / fence damage the smallest wall can block an entire passage. This should never happen in PvE.
Is this the solution? Of course not, but every step that makes griefing harder has positive effect on the server. Griefing is currently a cancer because: ITS TOO EASY do that, it takes minimum effort for maximum damage. Funcom needs to open their eyes for this huge problem!
