Longer time to get a Mentor
This is all my opinion, I simply hope some people will agree with me and help to make the change happen.
Basically, everything I'm going to cover in this discussion will be as the title says. Making the time limit you have to get a mentor... longer.
Obviously I have reasons to back this up. When I first joined Achaea, I had no idea what a mentor was, much less that I had a time limit to get one. I was informed by my House shortly after joining and running through some 'help scrolls'... but not everyone will have a house to tell them this. Not only that, but mentors are apparently permanent. They cannot be changed, or so I was told by one of the help scrolls. Perhaps that is a house rule, or maybe it's actually true throughout the game... I do not know. What I do know is that one can't choose who they want as their mentor in 50 hours when there are 10 mentors to choose from and they have that long to get to know them.... while leveling up, reading help scrolls, exploring, completing your tasks, and learning the game in general. Not only that, but the mentors might not be online at the same time as you, so those hours are being spent away from the time limit without making any progress toward picking a mentor. See what I'm saying? 50 hours isn't enough time to check out all of your options and make a choice that will be irreversible. It took me 3 days and 10 hours before I could finally pick a mentor that I knew I would be able to follow, only to find out that I had a 50 hour limit and can't have her as my mentor at all.
More reasonable options (in my opinion) :
- 1 ~ 2 weeks, total. Not hours online, but a timer that ticks down from the day you log in.
- 95 Hours of online game-time.
- No time limit at all.
- Level 50 and 300 hours of play time (the requirements to be a mentor yourself). - Sena
I hope some people can agree with me on the matter. I would really love to get a second chance for a proper mentor, but that 50 hour limit doesn't allow for that. I think it's a bit ridiculous that I can't have a mentor simply because I actually worked toward picking one that I would be compatible with, as well as one that teaches what I am interested in learning.
