Would you play LPvE if the rewards were better?

    Would you play LPvE if the rewards were better?

    As of now the rewards for completing an LPvE instance is 5 marks of legend, 1 prestige token, and a chance of getting 1 base item. Does anyone feel like that's a lackluster reward? What if besides that we could get other things to drop from LPvE like quarks, stabilizer fragments or even a chance of getting a seal of preservation or a catalyst cache?

    Yes, but think in how this will affect the pvp legends...

    will love to see better rewards in lpve

    I already run LPVE .

    I already run LPvE from time to time.

    Better rewards would certainly help, but making it less of a slog would help more. Increase our damage out or reduce NPC health or something. LPvE should be a short, fun little side activity, a step or two up from Seasonals in difficulty.

    I hated lpve when it was quick runs. Now it takes forever to get a queue to pop and it takes forever to get through the instance. It's way too time consuming for what it is and I was half way done with the feats. Just hung it up for the most part from there.

    For the joy or just the feats? Or maybe both?

    The rewards would have to be so outrageously good for me to do LPVE that it is not feasible. lol.

    Red barrels everywhere that spawn every 5 seconds.

    If the rewards were good enough, there comes a point where everybody would be interested. It's just effort vs reward. Right now they're easy, but they grant nothing useful, so nobody cares.

    The better question is "What kind of rewards would it take for you to be interested in doing Legends PvE on a regular basis?"

    Would you do it if it included Marks of Victory?

    Would you do it if it included Specialty Marks from the most recent Episode?

    Would you do it if it granted PvP Marks of Valor without actually requiring you to PvP?

    Would you do it if it granted Stabilizer Fragments?

    Would you do it if there was exclusive Base Items dropping in there not available elsewhere? If it dropped style pieces the same as what the original instance did? If it dropped new styles exclusive to Legends PvE? If it just had a loot table containing iconics from other places in the game, fitting with the theme of playing as the Legends characters? If it had a chance to drop the data files for new Legends Characters, or re-skins for existing ones to put them in different outfits (akin to League of Legends skins for their champions).

    There is something that would tempt in everyone. It's just a matter of finding the balance of what the players want, without it taking too much work for the developers.

    People would do it for the feats if the numbers were reasonable. 750? Forget that.

    Both. It is a nice change from my normal character.
  14. ObsceneBoy Committed Player

    Yes, they could give iconic styles as rewards.
  15. Draconiano Committed Player

    No, unless they fix the broken damage.
  16. Ryazan Dedicated Player

    Fair enough.

    But I do feel that for some of the instances the reward is miserable... like PW or Bl├╝dhaven.
  17. BabyBoyzim Dedicated Player

    This.

    it would take a lot more then a few extra marks of whatever for me to consider doing legends.

    They need to do something. The LPVE instances should drop rewards like PVE.

    Then after that they need to go through and adjust some of the NPC's within LPVE instances.

    IMO, The LPVE instances are not fun at all.
    I cannot put my finger on it but they are lacking something. Maybe its the lack of roles or the mind numbing Hank n Slash feel they have.

    I tried to do some more of my LPVE feats the other day but I could only make myself run one instance.
    The rewards are part of the problem but that's not the only issue.

    I'm thinking part of the problem is the lack of customization that legends characters have. They have 6 powers and that's it.

    I'm thinking that the legends would need a complete overhaul in regards to their powers.

    But , If I were DCUO. I would look at the rewards first and maybe try to tie the rewards together more with regular PVE. The amount of loot dropped in LPVE definitely does not equal to what you receive running that same instance in PVE.
