"As an Overseer, you will be able to send out agents that you earn on Overseer Quests to gain rewards. This new system is designed to help players catch up to current content by giving access to rewards that are found in past content. Its goal is to help you build up your characters faster. Overseer is accessible starting at level 85 and with its launch we will grant all members a free level 85 heroic character. More details on Overseer will be coming very soon." Holly “Windstalker” Longdale This new Overseer was advertised as a Way to help people catch up.. However it doesn't do anything to help with that with the changes that were made. Collection items when current are farmed in mass and also found in the /baz. but when an exp becomes dated those items become harder to get. You either spend hours on end trying to farm them your self or just move on. Even searching the /baz doesn't help. With TBL and the requirement to get old collection items the price on the one people do sale has gone threw the roof. If a returning player wanted to "catch up" the overseer would not help. Most of your returning / causal players that need the help to catch up only play a few hours a day. If they Log in once a day the 6 / 12 /24 hour doesn't matter because they are only going to be able to do 1 set of quest. If they do a recruit mission to get more agents then they will have 4 slots. With that at the 25% collection rate they will be lucky to get 1 item each day. I have read the post about the money and how if you max a maximize your efforts then you can get X amount each day. However to unlock the higher level you have to run a lot of mission for the Xp. you have to gain a lot of agents to upgrade to be able to do the higher missions. The point being is yes a person that play a lot can get a lot of coin but the person you made this for to help some one "catch up" will spend years to get to that point. They will never make enough money with the new prices to buy a res stick. So again the system fails to help them As for trade skills again the items gain are not ground breaking and for some one that able to do 4-5 quest a day will not do much to help them to "catch up" I understand people took advantage of the system by using 10-50 Free to play account and was able to get things much faster then you expected. But that could of been solved by just making the coins no trade. Inflating the prices only made the new system worthless. The people that got what they wanted have it. those that where using it to catch up will have better luck spending there time farming the stuff the old fashion way. If you want Overseer work then it need to do what you advertised it to be a Catch up tool. *Limit the rewards to old content *Put collection back to way it was (4-5 drops per day for the catch up player is not going to hurt the economy of the game) People that play more can sale them but the price will be more in line that a catch up player can afford. Leave the current 1 or 2 exp off as that where the market is for current players. * Up the amount a Trade skill drop that people can make stuff with what is gained. Again limit this to old content. * the Amount of Xp on both players and merc could be increased to help people catch up * Add old content Group / Raid coin so those trying to catch up can get some of the old click item and other items to help them progress. * If you want to have some thing for current player then set high prices on Vanity items for them to go after. * Add Mounts / illusion at high prices. The stuff set to high prices should be thing that are not used to "catch up" You can make overseer work as both a "catch up tool" and a Vanity grind but as I see it now it become a wasted feature. much like the Combat side game in underfoot.
