Could we get more parcel npcs in kunark and velious?

    I really like this feature, but it seems to have skipped these expansions.

    In classic, parcels are all over even in strange places like north ro. In Kunark, you can only parcel at Cabilis bank (which requires extensive faction work for most races to visit safely). In Velious, there aren't any parcels anywhere. Then in luclin/pop, parceling is no big deal again.

    IMO there should be a parcel at every player city.

    In Kunark, there should be a parcel npc at:
    • The Overthere bank
    • Firiona Vie bank
    In Velious, there should be a parcel npc at:
    • Thurgadin bank
    • Kael Drakkel bank
    • Skyshrine bank
    These are the major hubs of these expansions. They should have a parcel.

    Plane of Tranquility is very much in need of a Parcel Vendor, as well. The NPC by the storage containers at the 3 banker building would be perfect placement.

    I agree with the Kunark and Velious suggestions, Tranq is adjacent to a zone with multiple parcels, don't really see a need for one there.
  5. Xhartor Augur

    Abysmal Sea could really use one too.
  6. Rondor Augur

    This would certainly be good to have a Parcel Vendor in Plane of Tranqility right away when Planes of Power is enabled, and near that spot with the bankers.

    For designers and developers considering this, note that when The Broken Mirror expansion is enabled there is Parcel Vendor NPC that appears in Plane of Tranquility in the building with Druzzil Ro along with the other vendors near her, but that vendor is more ideally suited and placed for the TBM+ era, while for the POP+ era an additional Parcel Vendor NPC as discussed above would be great.
  7. jeskola Why no Erudite Female avatar?

    Erud's Crossing could really use a Parcel Vendor.

    Seriously though, I was fairly suprised FV and OT don't have one.
  8. Protagonist Augur

    It's silly that there aren't more parcel vendors. But with origin, this is a complete non issue.
  9. CatsPaws I don't like titles

    I was always for them making the Parcel Vendor a Vet Reward.

    It may be a non-issue for gate classes, but it's a pain for melees. Imagine an ogre warrior having to check his mail. Origin to Oggok to get the mail, jog to Feerrott, jog to Innothule Swamp, jog to South Ro, cross the corner of north ro to commons, you're finally in a zone where you can get a port. Port, and now jog more zones to get back to where you were.

    More parcel vendors would always be nice, lots of expansions have you going back to origin or PoK to access a vendor. The vet award to summon one would be pretty cool actually if they were still making them. Maybe they could tweak the aug distiller / vendor vet AA to have a parcel tab.

    Skyshrine and Kael seem like odd ball choices to have parcel vendors since the bulk of the activity in those zones always seems to be killing, not "city life", at least Thurg has the shawl quest and is the only source of velium bars to make hanging out there as a city, but if we're using bankers/quests/merchants as a benchmark for parcel vendors then Chardok should have one as well. /shrug

    My argument against this is that they already gave us Origin, Parcels in major player-race cities, and shared banks for convenience. That is a lot, considering they could have worked on phasing that stuff out.
  13. Fudly Elder

    This thread has near 100% support. If people wanted that p99 experience, they'd be playing p99.
  14. Protagonist Augur

    Imagine being 2 months into Kunark without an OT hammer and gate pots.
  15. Accipiter Old Timer

    Or just put parcel on the Permutation Peddler and Resupply Agent.
  16. Accipiter Old Timer

    Pretty sure I'd just get a port in Feerrott but you still make a good point. ;)

    Guessing that if they put in more parcel NPCs, they'd lose on sales of the expedited delivery vouchers =/
  18. Honkietonk Lorekeeper

    This is the era of convenience, just delete all parcel NPCs and make parcels available through the game's UI, anywhere, any time!
  19. That0neguy Augur

    Most of the parcel's you speak of are not supposed to be there. The ones in NRo and such are all at the LDON camps. So if anything they should hide those NPC's until LDON launches.

    Nro has parcel at gypsy camp, so if in OT just xloc twice and there you are.
