I have a feeling that this will face massive opposition but I would like to see a level 1000 exp bauble in the shop. Yep, it is just as it sounds. You make a new character, buy the bauble from the shop, use it, and you're 1k. Obviously this would not apply to prestige leveling but I would argue that it is even more valid but that is for another discussion. :P
I know leveling is a big part of the game, however, leveling isn't what it once was. It's not much of an adventure anymore. You simply play as many accounts as you can tolerate and aoe your heart out and level as fast as you can with hot zones. The leveling speed of multi-boxing is too efficient to not do it that way. Why level two characters when you can level 4 or 6 players at the same time and faster. Not only does multi-boxing increase leveling rate, it increases the rate of gaining loot which is never a bad thing either. More experience and more loot! Multi-boxing is an absolute win-win! You are at a massive disadvantage if you don't do it. Not to mention that multi-boxing and loot prevents grouping with other players. It is a lonely world for someone that likes to run one or two accounts.
Well, I absolutely despise leveling and hence my desire for exp baubles. I want another option to max out my character without burning myself out by running 4+ accounts. I know I can run two accounts but it depressing knowing that I am at such a disadvantage. I want to explore and hunt above ground in Avalon with a few dungeons tossed in there. I'd like to see DP too. The exp bauble is a way to provide instant access to the new areas and higher level dungeons. Of course, you can't do the higher level dungeons with only one or two characters but it at least gives you the opportunity to join someone to see them… if someone is willing.
In terms of cost, I was thinking $2.50 for 100 levels and $20 for 1000 levels.
