    Opinion on Restricted Maps (by Level)

    So I have a fair few maps on my server, and to almost stagger their release by the natural growth of players, I was thinking of level restricting some areas (what is your guys opinion on this?)

    I know some players and casual players can get upset by this so I also have an solution of sorts which is;

    Spoiler:


    Just wanted peoples opinions on this idea before I consider it to implement it!

    well i have prajna restricted to level 30+ and PB is 33+ with a timestonepiece, might make pb free for 40+ but undecided.

    i think level restricting places is a bit of a double edged sword, i side its great to work towards something like a goal/achievement on the other side it stops newer players trying to catch up by utilizing the increased exp of certain areas.

    exp events for lower levels tends to balance that out, or can do. imo

    That's my only issue is I don't want to punish players but I also want to reward dedicated players
    I am looking to add in Map Buffs to my source in the near future.

    This will allow me to modify exp rates on maps for low levels if it's needed as people progress, as well as add temp map buffs that buff mobs to make low level areas re-purposed

    not sure how your server will work, but what about quest restricting them? Just stop a quest line before the map (based on level maybe?)

    They could enter the map, but not be gaining anything of advantage due to not doing the quest.

    Not a bad idea, might also rather than restricting the entire cave, make the lower floors inaccessible; make it weave into the quest chain story so it makes sense, such as pillars needing to be activated to "remove the magic presence" around a door.
