havent played on server for a year due to RL events.
However, I recall that pop raiding was made easier, for small guilds on live when the lvl 55 entry to tier 2 was opened up. eg you didnt need kill grumus to get to toorment etc.
WOuld that be a compromise? not suggesting that you open the elemental planes, to this system, just open 30% of the planes....throw the old dog a bone, she deserves it
perhaps later on tier 3 could be opened?
ohwait...wasnt there also an alternative key quest, put inlater on, for tier 3.....i recall it was useless as, as by the time it went in no one was playing pop anymore.
not sure if memory is right here......where these put in later ? MAYBE introduce, grpable acces quests upto tier 3, but you still need raid flags to get to higher tiers...and ALL flags to get into time.?
Certain zones are accessible through alternate means, although these do not count toward your planar progression. They do, however, count toward your charm power and AA rewards when talking with Gram Dunnar in the Plane of Knowledge. You are only rewarded once, for completing either the alternate access quest or the regular flagging. The zones with alternate access quests are Drunder, Fortress of Zek (Plane of Tactics), Plane of Torment, Ruins of Lxanvom (Crypt of Decay), and Halls of Honor.
