I wanted people to have a bit of time to process their feelings and emotions.
For the purpose of this thread, please use numbers to support any assertions. I will update this OP to reflect the thread.
1. How long (in RL Days) should it take for an org to recover from an SMob raid? Really what is the point of the work required? Is it simply to cause them to pull together? If so this seems long enough to start to have the opposite effect. Without knowing what the goal is, how would it be possible to balance this?
2. How long does it take for your org to do its shield quest competently? Consider that the longer in RL days the process takes, that the less effective the org will be (e.g. day 1 and org may be 70% effective, but a RL month later, perhaps, only 50% or less).
2.a 5000 x needed.
2.a.i Gaudiguch (no personal reward aka no gold given): Even with significant credit rewards it took us almost a month to get half way, 5/27 to 6/24 for 2635 butterflies. Currently, (7/16) we're at 4634 so closer to 7 weeks. This will tend towards longer the more frequently raids occur.
You tell Wyrden Ravager Tarken, "Come to Gaudiguch. I'll give you the title of Grand Moth."
