Just some simple ideas to help make the game a lot more enjoyable that I think implementation would enhance the experience… not a lot but enough to not frustrate and make team based gaming more enjoyable. Some are copied from other games and some are not.
Idea #1: Have your clan members appear on the world map. Yes its small and simple but when playing with people especially brand new people finding them after death or simply regrouping can be a difficult task especially when running long distances you can lose people quite easily and when some less experienced members do not know where to go it can be hard.
Idea #2: Somewhat related to the first one but have your waypoints appear on the map for clan members to. Once again helping less experienced players find their way. Take the Abyssal Remnant for example. It would be much easier to just tag the location then to try to and explain it. How I have gotten around this is literally by using paint and sending it in discord but for the casual player it would be annoying.
Idea #3: Compass bearings. Similar to how PUBG has their compass for direction have one for this to. It would make it easy just to get bearings and navigate especially through tricky areas and explaining it would be easier. Would mean less time looking at the map and more time immersed in the game. Might also add waypoints to it and points of interest such as your bed or an area like Sepermeru.
Idea #4: Being able to get in game maps which reveal points of interest or journey locations like the tower of bats. Now I know lots if not all will just google it but its one more thing to have to take you away from the immersive experience of the game. Maybe ways of getting in game maps to reveal locations such as crafting in religious sites or being able to craft for those specific locations.
Idea 5: More in game friendly villages such as Serpermeru but not as big. Just small areas that might have a trader or merchant to help you get items that are usually else where. For example trading Iron for Fur if your in the south eastern parts of the map.
Idea 6: A small book you can pick up in spawn that gives you hints and basic controls to a point. Maybe things like “I was out here for days eating nothing but insects I found in shrubs” to give the new players to the entire genre a bit of an idea of whats possible.
Idea 7: Time based events. Things that happen on a weekly or regular basis to keep people online. high level events designed to bring everyone together to fight a boss or do a quest. Maybe even a previous battle such as the Abyssal Remnant but change it to make it far more harder. Idea is to keep ongoing play a thing and change things up for higher levels.
Anyways these are just a few ideas I have a heap more. The game is great but with some minor tweaking it can be so much better.
