So, the new open-tag-percentage-based drop rates for the world bosses is awesome. (Side note, the legendary drops in dungeons, also awesome). In regards to the world bosses though, if there was some sort of Timer Object that could be moused over to show the next spawn time(Or better yet, a counter display on the floor so we could watch the final second tick down) would increase attendance and therefore competition on the world bosses, but why do we want that?

Well, In every game I've ever heard of having Guild wars as a feature, its always been a great feature for hardcore players that, when done correct, is adored. More competition over the World bosses via increase attendance due to the counter would HOPEFULLY spark some major guild wars.

Just my idea, thanks for the read.

Edited: Sadly, I cant add options to the poll but I also saw someone start a thread about a Window or Server Announcement.

    I agree that competition about the worldbosses will immensely increase if they put something like a timer on a window. It will not only help large alliances, but also small minorities who would like to stick in their small environment. Large alliances have a timer for the raid bosses anyway. It will be a great help for the rest of the server, this is my honest thought.

    As good as this idea would be, we currently already have soooooo many ppl killing them that the boss dies faster than FK H5 bosses while being perm. stunned,
    not even to talk about the loot part, (what is already being discussed in another tread)
    befor you can give the whole server such a timer, there are a good amount of things that would need to be done with the worldbosses, because if not, you got a 10 sec boss noone gets loot from.

    The fact that loot is based on percentages of damage means that the same amount of chests are dropping because the boss is still dying 100%. I'm sure with the proper flame fanning this game could be great and have more servers to spread the population. Also, While I only play on Balles, I've heard the other 2 servers are almost dead except for a few small guilds. This is aimed at helping the game grow and be more fun to more people, plus lets not forget we dont even have all of our content out yet so in time there will be more world bosses per server which means less people at each. Double so by the fact that marks are dropping at a massive rate increase, where as better jewelry and weapons now drop from FK so the only people who should really be doing it are people looking for/selling marks. Thats not something most hardcore guilds coordinate for, at least in my opinion. Or they wont after a few more weeks of the market saturation. Without hardcore guilds tracking, and not sharing, the times, a timer would be very necessary.
