    Default Collecting player tears to promote open world pvp

    So I had this crazy idea to promote open world pvp:

    Every time you kill a player in the wild they have a chance of dropping a tear with their name on it that you could collect, so you could go back and see who you have killed and such.

    Too crazy? Idk, might be fun

    itd be nice to keep a log of your kills yes but i dont think it would neccessarily promote open world pvp. Personally i believe the best way to promote it in a 2 faction game would be to create areas that can be taken over by each side. so if one side takes the town it is their town and so on so forth. It would make it pretty interesting at least.
    And the little Warrior said to the little Mage "One day I'm going to grow up to be a fierce dual wielding Paragon and people will run in fear because I'll be so Intimidating in Battle" The Mage looked at the little Warrior and said "Ya well, I'm going to be a Pyromancer" and that was that.

    Didn't they already say they are doing a world pvp zone in 1.3? Not that there'd be anyone in it on my shard anyway. =-/

    Reminds me of old school uo when they used to let you cut up the bodies and you could keep the parts. They were fun to collect.

    I think this is a great idea, I have quite a few friendly rivalries with the guardians on my server and would love to keep score in that way with them.

    Turning in someones shard/tear whatever could reward you with:

    PR Rank provides bounty $/favor/etc.

    These shards/tears are only dropped in open world pvp.

    What do you guys think?

    Id love to see this, but instead of tears, make it ears, like in Diablo 2 PvP.

    And make it so that we can craft peoples' ears into clothing.

    Was just going to say that, I remember having the heads of people we hated stacked up as decoration.

    There goes that Teen rating though if this was implemented.

    Only way Open World PvP will get better is in an expansion pack. Because they would need to add a new zone. The current zones are just too small to go adding stuff like forts or towns in.
    Just my opinion though Also if anyone has noticed this is just one land mass. Imagine if they added a second one that was dominated by forts and conquerable towns runned by armies of regulos. Now that would be fun. Make it so that the armies of Regulos constantly bombarded the towns from rifts trying to take them back. You could time an attack on an opponents town when those armies attacked them ... essentially making it a real war. It wont happen until an expansion comes with a level cap increase most likely. Just like WoW.

    I honestly think people would be more inclined to pvp in open world with any kind of trophy system. Don't underestimate the lure of bragging rights.
