New Legacy: Champion Spawns
I understand that the UO forums are probably not the best place to get support for this as most are already against champion spawns being located in Felucca to begin with. I believe as of the last live stream the development team was still undecided about including champion spawns.
I would like to see Champion Spawns be present in New Legacy. I understand that you do not want powerscrolls on New Legacy to keep the entry point into the game to a minimum and that is fine and understandable. A champion spawn is one of the few objective based PvP encounters currently available to players and it would be a shame for this to be lost.
In my opinion champion spawns promote PvP growth and get new players to participate. 2002 I think champion spawns were introduced almost 20 years ago they've been a part of this game. New Rewards could be implemented that will make doing them desirable to replace the powerscrolls. Vanity items like Hair Dyes, Mounts, Titles, Decorations, Transmogs. Or maybe could even make potions that remove negative armor properties like Antique, Cursed, Brittle, 125stones that won't function on New Legacy but will be transferable to live shards and be high value. I would say to also keep the harrower and allow stat scrolls to drop. The more variety available the better increasing the rarity of drops. I am sure some players have even better suggestions for replacement items for powerscrolls then I can think of.
Since the plan is to keep the Original World a suggestion I saw was to also include T2A (the lost lands) as a Vice versus Virtue only zone where champion spawns are located. This is a huge open world zone that can be a PvP playground with all kinds of terrain for battles might even get a sea battle to break out. This keeps the limited space in dungeons to regular PvM content and provides Vice versus Virtue players a space to PvP without interference from blues.
It is of my opinion that on a seasonal shard even people that want to focus primarily on a PvP playstyle should be able to earn rewards and memento's to take with them after New Legacy. With rewards on the line in a PVP setting like champion spawns it gives guilds a reason to recruit players to compete with the top guilds on the shard giving players of all skills levels an opportunity to get into a guild and participate growing PvP for the game.
If the only form of PvP is going to be Yew Gate then I feel it will alienate many players and entire guilds from coming back. I am finding it a tough sell to my friends to return when the only promise of PvP that will be available is fighting at the Yew Gate. Including Champion Spawns will really help convince some to give this seasonal shard a chance.
