Help Determine the Future of Shrine Camping

Help Determine the Future of Shrine Camping - Pathfinder Online - MMORPG.com

Goblinworks' CEO Ryan Dancey has taken to the Pathfinder Online forum to ask players for assistance regarding the issue of shrine camping. In his brief post, Dancey indicates that there are legitimate reasons that shrine camping is acceptable, but realizes that it can also cause issues even in a PvP-centric game world.

It has come to my attention that some players have decided that camping shrines and repeatedly killing respawning characters is acceptable.

There are times when I would agree - open PvP windows in hexes for example. Or when trying to hurt a character that has tresspassed or is misbehaving enough to induce that player to desist or leave. But that is a very arbitrary line that a rule cannot be written that will not be abusable.

I would prefer not to issue a blanket rule against shrine camping. Help me not do that by suggesting a policy that would preserve the strategy without enabling the greif [sic].

What do you think of the issue of shrine camping? First swing by the Pathfinder Online forum to check out the discussion and then leave us your thoughts in the comments.

Thanks again, Anonymous Tipster!
