The monuments being built in Antonica and Commonlands-- Can they even be finished in the time the Dragons Attack event is taking place? The dragons require numerous high level players to take them down... and while they're not difficult, they are damage sponges who still take some time (and special mechanics) to kill properly. Any player is allowed to loot a finite amount of harvestables from their corpse, but risk the game crashing because 100 players and their 2 dozen pets and mercenaries concentrated into one specific location risks that, apparently. It's Day 2 of the event, and Maj'Dul has only made 0.1% progress to making it to stage 2 of the build. Half a year after the game launched, the griffon stations were built in Thundering Steppes and Nektulos Forest. The built event was finished within a couple of hours on most servers, long before the majority of the playerbase could get home from work to participate. Sony learned their lesson by making things require more effort for the server to complete. Way back in the day, I helped construct the wizard spires and the druid rings on Kithicor. In both cases, there were all manor of ways to help advance the construction. Quests to kill enemies, quests to gather harvestables off the ground, and quests to actually tradeskill components. For the wizard spires, servers learned that a dragon would attack at the spire that was just completed. *Proudly wears the "Destroyer of Ordanach" title.* This gave everyone motivation to complete the spires in a timely fashion. The druid rings started off with a good pace. Everyone was excited to get the druid network up and working. The construction of the Commonlands, Nektulos, Butcherblock, Enchanted Lands, Zek, and a few others went pretty fast. Things started to slow down by the start of the Sinking Sands. People were already losing interest and moving onto other stuff. Loping Plains only had a few dedicated workers 'round-the-clock to help complete it. I pretty much single-handedly worked day and night to construct the Stonebrundt Highlands druid ring because nobody cared anymore at that point. I'm pretty sure that the monuments will NOT be finished by the end of the event. It'll just have to be auto completed by the devs if they don't reduce the requirements to complete it.
