These are the main points that should be focused on. All of the previous points are subjective and up for debate. Bounty Hunter absolutely needs a rework, regardless of what future implications there are regarding the Wilderness Diary.Mike wrote:There are probably also some BH mechanics and possibly rewards that could use a rework. I'm not opposed to the idea of being able to receive emblem drops from your opponent, as in when you kill an opponent who has a tier 7 emblem, you receive a tier 6 emblem from them as a drop.
Perhaps the penalty system can use some changes as well. Maybe some rewards in the shop added, maybe some reworked. I'm sure there are already some threads on this topic, if so feel free to link them here or write a summary on this thread of what has been said in other threads. Either way, all input is welcome!
As for the mechanics, Emblems should drop to opponents upon death and be reduced by 1 100% of the time like you have said here. Every time you kill a target you also have the chance to receive a tier 1.
The BH timers have been completely broken since release. The messages a player receives are completely inconsistent (See Grizzly's post). A solution needs to happen there that is not abusable by players hopping back and forth over the wildy line.
The penalties are too high. It should be a 2-5 minute penalty regardless of what tier you have on your account. A 30-60 second penalty for killing your opponent is fine as it allows time for you to loot and regear.
The rewards all need to be reconsidered. Base the prices upon their current market values and how bh points relate to coins. No one is going to spend 40k bh points on bgloves (40m) instead of 45k for an imbue scroll (2b).
