Please allow adjustment for the spawn of elites. I am playing on a private server with my 12 year old and 8 year old - they’re relatively new to combat. We can handle all things well and not have constant grindy corpse-runs, but elites throw a monkey-wrench into it all. I get why they’re around, but I’m observing a rate that is NOT rare.
(If someone can recommend a mod for reducing the difficulty or spawn rate of elites, I’d appreciate it - I didn’t see something that fit the bill yet).
We head out from the newbie southern river area to mine some iron up north, and we’ve seen 1-2 every single run, one on the way up or at the iron area we go to, and often one on the way down or very close to our base. My kids don’t want to leave the camp anymore because run-and-use-bow-from-chicken-heights is boring. “Hey this guy hits harder, has more HP and does nothing else different” and attacks alongside the other 7 hyenas or 4 crocs is a waste that will keep folks like my kids and wife from playing because it’s so unpredictable and unfun to just shoot arrows from safe distances or abandon a 10+ minute equip-up-and-hike effort. I have the expansions, and my children want the new emotes, weapons and architecture… so I could be buying 3x of everything, but without being able to tune the game’s difficulty better, they’ll be lost to WoW PvE. Or worse, Roblox!
I love this game. Please save me from having to play Roblox with them!
