I am all for a full world wipe, but I am curious if it will wipe our characters and/or inventories as well. Personally, I would be happy with losing structures and even inventories, but I would prefer not to lose my characters and levels, though I wouldn’t be upset if that needs to go as well. It would certainly help the community re-establish the economy in time for the new players coming in at the release if many of the people are able to start filling those roles in a somewhat timely manner. Previously, the economy evolved slowly as the need for one gradually evolved, so the features became utilized quicker, but I can personally attest to how great the new player experience for me as a hunter has been these past few days when there is the Portal Seeker’s daily group hunt they do for example, as well as all the shops I can sell my goods to. Allowing us to retain our characters levels make it both easier for old players to get to the parts of the game they play for, as well as making it so in the weeks before the 1.0 release drops, there is enough time to get some good stuff for the new players ready.
Also I really like my no-durability-loss-on-death perks, and I’ll admit that this is largely coming from that.
