FYI: You aren't putting the current game into perspective, you're trying to revive the old game's perspective. It's not 1990 anymore.
Should I level to 50 in KM5 or Cob because others did, when those were the only options at the time?
Sure it's doable, but it takes forever, and I don't think anyone but the "old timers" care about who did it the hard way, or how long it took them because they envy someone who was able to do it in a fraction of the time.
The point is there is a massive dungeon geared toward doing nothing but exp'ing and it is now inaccessible for the bulkiest portion of doing nothing but exp'ing (lvls 25-50). What's the point?
Brad: It's still not solo'able by non barb classes, even the lower levels, and seriously, at 50 who's doing levels 1-15 anyway? Mormar is definitely 50+ in terms of difficulty, but you could kill two birds with one stone by taking the mostly unused lower levels and making a solo area to grind out 30-50. It's mostly the auto hit causing problems (at least for me). I'm not so much concerned with how long it takes to kill something, but I'd like to be able to kill a more than 2-3 crits before refilling IH. Yeah, the zoos I refer to aren't 20+ crits. Anything more than 1 is a zoo with the multi-round auto-hit. I'd like to see it feel more like n1-n10 with exp adjusted accordingly. I like Quat's idea of adding psi, but don't turn it into a Keep situation.
If you could fix the "non-existent" auto-hit, it'd probably be fine how it is, but if that's going to remain, then mob health (and xp per mob) needs to be lowered to where I can kill them before they kill me.
Look back at when you designed the Nork dungeons, everyone loves the "feel." It was difficult, but doable and just short of painfully slow. Mormar is mass chaos. It's insanely quick, but the risks are just overcome with bait and PWH (unless you're a barb). Again, great when there were 200 DIFFERENT people online to group with. If you're concerned with leeching and power leveling, then give us an alternative option. Restricting us to Cob isn't a solution because you're best xp is another barb only zone. It also stretches out the grind to the point of people burning out.
