It’s no breaking news now : Secret Passage, the lvl29ish instance is now fully PK enabled.
For those who didn’t read the announcement, it’s here.
At first, I thought it was a big troll… Then I saw the announcement made by Frankieraye and I couldn’t help but thinking : “omg… They’re going even deeper in stupidness like I never would have expected”.
Why Secret Passage, the only way to get to FB29 without paying ? I have no idea. It may be because some dev messed up a line of the code, making it PK enabled, and as we all know, PWE is never wrong, so they made it look like it was actually expected and it was the surprise we were all waiting for.
And it was indeed a surprise !
So now, all the poor lvl29ish players will have to either pay at the Illusion Stones in Arch like 5k coins. It seems to be enough for Frankieraye, like it’s no big deal that people have to PAY to get to the location of their FB29 or even kill some mobs in there (Silver Frost, Dismal Shade, etc…).
Why won’t they open the Arena ? It’s supposedly because they want to keep this instance purely “VIP” for PWI big events…
Why not a higher level instance, as we all know it’s higher levels that want to PvP. Even in PvP servers, you’re safe until you’re level 30…
To make the Cube of Fate PK enabled is one thing, because you actually go there by your own will. But to make Secret Passage, a required path to complete quests, PK enabled, it’s just wrong.
Surprise surprise, we now have a bunch of level 101, some are even R9 geared, waiting at the exit of the safe zone in SP waiting for noobs to come by so they can 1 shot them. How fun is that, right ? Isn’t that exciting to know you can 1 shot people, like in your wettest PvP dreams ?
Thanks PWE ! You guys really have awesome ideas to break this game a bit more !
I really do think we need GAs like never before… This game is getting out of control, if PWE is starting to have such stupid ideas like making Secret Passage PK enabled.
There is a petition on the forums to remove the PK of SP, I suggest you all go vote there.
