Thumbs up Give new players more starting rrt

I think brand spanking new players (not rerollers) should be given 5 hours rrt. Also, when they submit their e-mails for confirmation, they should be given some sort of premium to get them hooked (maybe for 3 days). It beats the 3 hours of rrt given for an e-mail confirmation and double plunder looks mightily enticing for any new player to perhaps invest in a TC.

+1 for excellent marketing strategy. Give them a taste of it and they always want more.

I support, but Jeff might see this as exploitable, although I don't know why anyone would want to farm on low-level characters. The gold just isn't worth it.

Please don't give crack to your new players. I know the dangers of it all too well. Now I have to support an entire family addicted to paid account time. *sniffles*

They'll never be N's again!!!

*sobs and turns away*

For slow effects, use the slow % but as a negative.

Just repeat for multiple effects.

DO NOT multiply by 1+slow% to get your new delay. 1*1.4 is not the same as 1/0.6 and your answer will be wrong.

I think brand new players should get Reroller's Boon with an automatic 1,000,000 Old Total EXP (Boon Cap)
This means soulbound trophies.

i support, the amount of new players that complain when they realise being out of RT reduces their gains is massive, and then they have to wait to come back after reset to get more. this would mean they can get a bit more rt to start with, so they can experience a bit more of the game before running out of rt.

Quests should award 30 mins RT, each. Boss quests award 1 hour.
Might be a good alternative to simply giving more starter RT.

I would better support Nurvus' idea. Giving away free RT is a bad thing. Giving away something for a player's work would be nice.

however, your numbers are off.

Just make it so the quests up to t3 (15 quests total) each give 10 more minutes. (20 for bosses)
This adds up to 3 hours.

After each of those boss quests one person would turn in, they would gain 1 day of premium benefits (not true membership, just double gold and access to AH and gem/rune slots)

THen boss quests would not give RT - only give/extend premium.
