Hi all,

Any chance we can change these NPC's slighty... I'm thinking the 5 minute timer to accept another NPC's quest needs reducing/removing or the gold reward needs increasing?

This will help new players out as everyone knows the high price of good items these days... 500 gold is nothing..

The timer is not in place to prevent raking in high amounts of gold, but to prevent easy farming of compassion. So it probably won't go away. Tying the amount of gold to the distance to the destination might work.

Playing on Drachenfels? Speaking German? Tired of exploring Sosaria alone?

I think they should up the amount to perhaps 1k. It should be a fair amount, but not something to be farmed exclusively.

A long time ago, there was no timer. Mages would just gate NPC's town to town, even having multiple escorts at once, like a bus route, with no danger whatsoever.

Maybe they should just redo the whole compassion thing entirely. It's far, far easier for some skill sets compared to others, namely the gating. Perhaps they spawn NPC's deep in dungeons and you have to walk them to the exit, no gating.
