Sounds good for my concerns regarding unicorn and, for the time being, would make testing/tweaking on main easier on the mind since few peaceful harvers go to DL exclusively to harvest so less potential worry for them until Seridia is ultimately nuked.
Did we want to restrict Lothend as not a possible world boss map spawn? Given the difficulty consideration of this boss to be on the border of OP and I wouldn't be confident people would even attempt it in SC. I don't have a preference either way, I just tend to think about random things...
Is it worth discussing possible global announcements from this feature? Just something so people know the status of the situation both if it happens live, or doing a #recent type command/checking Webaccess if they were offline when stuff happened. I'm guessing if we do do a trial during Hell week, it's not needed; more for core functionality when part of the game full time.
As being first prototype testing, I doubt SAW will spawn it on Lothend, which has the most traffic in Alroth. Global announcements such as what? If spawned? If killed? Players involved in the kill or the player who does the final blow?
At minimum, I was thinking more of an indication that either the demi-bosses reset/have been killed in time. I don't necessarily want the world to know a world boss was triggered (we can find that out
), but people should at least be aware that one could have spawned by the announcement that the demi-bosses were killed in time. Similar mechanic as invasions; mobs have spawned so people are aware they could
die if they venture to the wrong place
In the case of the demi-bosses have been reset (e.g. weren't killed in time), just some message once the time period to kill them all has reset so people aren't confused as to "Well how long do we have left?". This is assuming we can trigger the timer to kill them all once the first one has been killed (more dynamically). If we can only do at a certain time/day (more static), the announcement is not needed in this case.
Other types of announcements can be discussed if people want a specific kind.
This may have been assumed to be added but in my experience as a dev, I don't want to rely on unspoken assumptions.
