Over the weekend, one of the popular topics on the official RIFT forums and in-game was the topic of mob tagging in Storm Legion. Trion has finally taken the first step in doing away with the old school “tag a mob first and grab all the rewards” system and now players are able to share experience, coin rewards, and quest progression on mobs they didn’t originally tag. Most players enjoy the new system, which essentially allows players to work together to defeat mobs and quickly complete Carnage quests and gain extra experience.
The downside, however, is the fact that since experience is split equally between all contributors of a mob kill, it actually becomes more efficient to throw up a weak DoT on a mob someone else is killing, remount, and continue finding something else to kill (or throw more DoTs around). According to some players, this kind of invalidates the whole “players working together” image that Trion most likely had in mind.
