Default Manastone Account Sharing Strategy

Just a heads up, if your a solo player looking to camp a Manastone it might be tougher than you think.

The #1 and #2 spots are rotating their account through multiple people.

I'm currently #3 on a Manastone camp after waiting 34 hours. I wouldn't have stayed this long if I knew I was against rotating teams.

Fun Fact: The last two people to get Manastones in this group are Crovax and Grakken from that 35 page monstrosity

Teal has had better luck than Green.

It's been 43 hours since our last Manastone drop. A couple have been here since Monday/Tuesday.

It's impossible to climb the list completely alone at this droprate without major health concerns.

It was at this point I decided to no longer be kind to the casuals as they have extreme short term memory. They did this to themselves, unfortunately.

I feel like I should make a thread for this, but no one was responsive to constructive advice....

Just set it to time at camp on list. Highest time at camp is awarded the stone. Allow me to sleep, and allow me to come and go from the camp. Can also just add a point every afk check/ph damaged etc instead of just time. This means you don't have to account share, you don't have to spend consecutive days awake, and in time your time invested WILL be rewarded. Instead I run the risk of passing out on my keyboard, having my account stripped/stolen, or other real life health issues in order to participate in one of the key elements of this server.

I wish they would just make this drop more often. Maybe a 6 hour guarantee drop or less. I'm not opposed to others getting good items.

This just shows that mindlessly sticking to "classic" results in anything but a classic experience. And in this case a dangerous experience.

We didn't know all details of the game when EQ launched, so the only way to have a similar experience is to introduce mystery.

Want to have the Manastone in the game?

Than have it drop off a group of different mobs. This group is of appropriate level and location and lore. Perhaps it is never dropped by the same mob twice.

That's exciting and fun.

Sitting in your own filth for extremely long periods of time, endangering your health and self-respect all for a certain drop is neither fun nor exciting.

Someone will eventually die on a long enough timeline of this manastone being on green/teal unless something is done to remedy the list situation.

It might have to take someone perishing from this long camp before any action is taken to adjust how the list system works.

Also, if players are account sharing, that is negatively impacting all others who are actually dedicating their own time to camping this thing.

Sad day
