Mentor system and class petsmounts.

By Mitisukai - FORMER SUBSCRIBER - May 19, 2013, 22:43:19
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS AN IDEA AND CAN USE SOME IMPROVEMENT! If you disagree, please put a reason why.
I've noticed that Frigost has become more leech orientated and that new players are jumping straight from incarnam to get leeched, so I have a suggestion to change it...
The mentor system! This is how it works:

The Mentor:
  • Must be over level 150 and have the kneel emote.
  • Must be more than 50 levels higher than the apprentice.
  • Must be the same class as the apprentice.
  • Cannot have more than two apprentices.
  • Cannot be from the same IP as the apprentice.
  • Must register themselves as available at their class temple (like with a profession). Once they obtain an apprentice, their name is removed from the book.
  • Cannot have an apprentice if they are an apprentice themselves.
  • Cannot have more than one apprentice from the same IP (see below).
  • Must be P2P.

The Apprentice:
  • Must have obtained the kneel emote.
  • Must be under level 150.
  • Must be more than 50 levels apart from the mentor.
  • Must be the same class as their mentor.
  • Can only have one mentor.
  • Cannot be from the same IP as their mentor.
  • Cannot become an apprentice of their master on any other character on that IP after their mentor has gained mentor tokens (to prevent abuse). If they leave their master, then can re-apply on the same character.
  • Once the apprentice hits level 150, they automatically leave their mentor.
  • Must be P2P.

The System:
Basically the apprentice goes to their class temple and consults a book of mentors that show all available mentors of their class.
Once the apprentice chooses a mentor they must "enquire" where a message will be sent to the mentor they enquired about and the mentor decides whether or not to "adopt" them as an apprentice.
On the message from the apprentice about the enquiry, the apprentice has the option to show their equipment, characteristics and spells to give the mentor a better idea about them.
Once adopted as an apprentice, the mentor can invite their new student to a "training session" which is similar to a group. The apprentice then proceeds to fight dopples.
The mentor stands by like a spectator but cannot interfere with the fight, during this phase the apprentice is granted 10% bonus exp and kamas. If the apprentice wins the fight, the mentor is awarded mentor tokens.
If the mentor also completes "An excessive bakers dozen", the mentor is granted bonus mentor tokens and the apprentice is granted 50% bonus exp and drops at dungeons their level for the remainder of the day.

Mentor Tokens:
  • Awarded to the mentor every time they "mentor" their student in dopples and such.
  • Base of 1 per fight, increased by 1 for every 10 mentor levels.
  • Base reward of 50 tokens on completion of "An Excessive bakers dozen"quest, increase by 10 for every week bonded (maximum stack of 10 weeks). Also increases by 1 for every mentor level.
  • Can be exchanged for prizes such as characteristic scrolls, bonus exp/pp scrolls (linked to the account) class set parts and a new class petsmount.
  • Can also be exchanged to increase their "Mentor level" (see below).
  • The longer the apprentice and mentor are bonded, the more the mentor token reward.
  • Also awarded 500 (once a week) tokens if the mentor takes their student through a dungeon of their group cap, not including 150+ dungeons. Base reward cannot be modified.

Suggestions/Questions/Opinions?

Amusingly enough (depending on your sense of humor, I suppose), I wrote up a prospectus for a Mentor system rather similar to this one during my first 12 months as a CCM here. I've showed it to the devs and the top management, and so far, no one has bitten. ^^

But I keep bringing it up every year, maybe someday...

The Rogue petsmount could give bomb damage and the Fogger one could give increased turret life.

I'm thinking Xelor could give AP reduction and Ecaflip could give...idk..since there isn't a "Luck" factor in the game..maybe like +damage or something.

It looks fun however, but to clarify, its basically any and all fights the Mentor supervises will trigger him gaining a bonus/token while the Apprentice gains their own reward too?

Nice thinking but would players do this?

Is the reward big enough to help others and stop yourself from leveling (ive seen the list of rewards with % bonus xp but is it worth more than leveling yourself, example 50 fights 100% xp is around equal as helping a apprentice 50 fights?)

The mentor tokens increase as your mentor level does, also the prizes are suggestions so they could use some improvements. Any ideas?

You might wanna throw in a certain increment of say, level scaled exp with a 0~100% bonus per level and an option to buy extras with the tokens, but you have to make it something to work for. Not anything like "Well, I did 50 fights with my apprentice and got 500 tokens, lets go get us some xp!!" But don't make it overly expensive like spell point scrolls either cause it'd act as a deterrent in a way also.

The shop has example prices, I think Ankama would have the final say if they did take a liking to it.
Any ideas for apprentice rewards?

  • Can only have one mentor.
  • Cannot be from the same IP as their mentor.
  • Cannot become an apprentice of their master on any other character on that IP after their mentor has gained mentor tokens (to prevent abuse). If they leave their master, then can re-apply on the same character.
  • Once the apprentice hits level 150, they automatically leave their mentor.
  • Must be P2P.

The System:
Basically the apprentice goes to their class temple and consults a book of mentors that show all available mentors of their class.
Once the apprentice chooses a mentor they must "enquire" where a message will be sent to the mentor they enquired about and the mentor decides whether or not to "adopt" them as an apprentice.
On the message from the apprentice about the enquiry, the apprentice has the option to show their equipment, characteristics and spells to give the mentor a better idea about them.
Once adopted as an apprentice, the mentor can invite their new student to a "training session" which is similar to a group. The apprentice then proceeds to fight dopples.
The mentor stands by like a spectator but cannot interfere with the fight, during this phase the apprentice is granted 10% bonus exp and kamas. If the apprentice wins the fight, the mentor is awarded mentor tokens.
If the mentor also completes "An excessive bakers dozen", the mentor is granted bonus mentor tokens and the apprentice is granted 50% bonus exp and drops at dungeons their level for the remainder of the day.

Mentor Tokens:
  • Awarded to the mentor every time they "mentor" their student in dopples and such.
  • Base of 1 per fight, increased by 1 for every 10 mentor levels.
  • Base reward of 50 tokens on completion of "An Excessive bakers dozen"quest, increase by 10 for every week bonded (maximum stack of 10 weeks). Also increases by 1 for every mentor level.
  • Can be exchanged for prizes such as characteristic scrolls, bonus exp/pp scrolls (linked to the account) class set parts and a new class petsmount.
  • Can also be exchanged to increase their "Mentor level" (see below).
  • The longer the apprentice and mentor are bonded, the more the mentor token reward.
  • Also awarded 500 (once a week) tokens if the mentor takes their student through a dungeon of their group cap, not including 150+ dungeons. Base reward cannot be modified.

Suggestions/Questions/Opinions?

Amusingly enough (depending on your sense of humor, I suppose), I wrote up a prospectus for a Mentor system rather similar to this one during my first 12 months as a CCM here. I've showed it to the devs and the top management, and so far, no one has bitten. ^^

But I keep bringing it up every year, maybe someday...
Best way to get to them is print it off on thousands of sticky notes and stick them everywhere they go. Plaster the walls, doors, tables etc. with sticky notes!
I didn't stalk you and take the idea, I swear!
P.S. You need to buy more milk.

I wouldn't add damage to panda, but maybe give it 1or 2 mp to counter against Boozer's loss or some random assortment of 5~10% resistance across the board (or fixed resis, idk)
