    Default Idea for Rift Store Purchase or Patron Bonus: increase Favor cap

    I would like to suggest an idea for a Rift store purchase or a bonus received while under patron status: raise favor cap to 500,000.

    Actually, perhaps this idea could be expanded upon. I could see a very nice increase in the number of folks that pay for patron status if it meant that all currency limits were raised by 50%.

    I'm not even sure that currency limits are even necessary given version 2.5 of the game....but, that's just me.

    You can easily exceed the ESM weekly limit by just playing the game.

    Currency cap increases are much needed, but wholly irrelevant to any form of pvp currency.

    Huh? How is it irrelevant -- I max out my favor constantly before I have enough marks to purchase something new. And, frankly, I have more pvp consumables already than I'll ever need.

    Then you'd have the same issue if they increased the cap. You did not present any solution to the issue, only what you perceive may alleviate the problem.

    I never claimed that there was a solution to any problem. It was a "Quality of Life" suggestion. The only way to actually remove all problems with currency (pvp or otherwise) would be to remove the limits entirely; however, given that Trion wishes to keep those in place, my suggestion was simply to raise the limits for those that support the game. In other words, instead of having to start wasting favor on consumables I don't need once I hit 300k, I could keep saving up to 500k. Although I'm sure I'd still hit the favor cap before getting the marks I need, it would definitely be better than 300k limit.

    I'm not quite sure you thought I was trying to solve some sort of problem with my suggestion. Re-read what I wrote: it was pretty clear that my suggestion was purely for the purposes of a 'perk', not to remove Trion's blocking mechanism.

    Uhh, why does it have to be a patron bonus or purchase?

    How about......they just raise it.

    Well it could solve his or others issue of having to dump favor into enchants waiting for marks.

    And yes, forget patron or cash shop and just raise it. Caps in general kinda go against the mmo concept of time invested = stuff. Nothing erks more than time into an mmo to see you're rewards lost or be converted into 26 boost run speed by 10%. I do understand the devs perceived problem in stocking up something so when new stuff is released those ppl can buy it all in one day but im sure they can figure out a work around with out currency caps. I hope.

    Patron bonus should give you the maximum amount of CQ power, remove CQ as a queue option and delete all local data relating to CQ.

    The favor cap is in place to prevent people from instantly purchasing new stuff when released. Unlike pve stuff, pvp gear still uses the same base currency.

    Note: I realize marks are required, but this is more in reference to the xpac, effectively I cannot purchase new sets in their entirety with "the pvp I've already done", I would have to continue to pvp.

    The reason I suggested this as a patron bonus (or a Rift store purchase) was in an attempt to think of a way that Trion can make money on pvp.

    If we want pvp to get more attention from Trion, we need to start thinking of ideas on how they can make money from "pvp oriented players". Due to the pvp-player mindset it's almost impossible for them to get away with selling anything that would make someone stronger in pvp -- so, we are going to have to be creative.
