I have seen some posts that worry the new elite RNG spawns may make the game to hard. Even for Level 60, if not specced right, can be down right brutal. but isn’t that part of survival. Maybe we just got accustomed to button mashing through a camp/pack (bosses not included), that we forgot part of survival is watching for and avoiding possible dangers. I know low levels will have it tougher with elite crocs/hyenas. But isn’t that the point of noob river. To learn how to survive in the Exiled lands. Avoiding something is survival as much as dominating it with Heavy Spamming. How many times have we just ran the server from point a to point b to farm something in mass, ran into a pack of NPC’s, slaughtered them in 2 or 3 minutes, not harvest and just continue? I know i have done it absurdly often. Now, instead, if i am going for iron, i will avoid running straight thru those packs. I will pay attention and path away around so i can get the 10000 iron from Gods Claw with my 10 STR/41 Enc build.
I ask us to step back and think, is it really harder, or is it as it should be, about surviving a brutal landscape?
