I loved the queue but didn’t use it since the first 2 weeks it was launched. It was working very well so perhaps it is not too hard to extend it to Tradu Mines?
The only thing which needs to be different would be a restriction to level 20 players having that option. All else functions as normal, no scaling, guaranteed drops every 5 kills etc. A queue for the four Tradu dungeons would benefit a large group of players, for example:
- Gearing Up/Learning/Socializing: Fresh Level 20s can get their first drops and at the same time learn something new from the more experienced. And they get a foot inside the community, meeting folks from different guilds.
- Gearing Up/Stats: Mid-experienced players could go for higher stats infusing magic/phys def/vitality from normal drops into their shard gear.
- Trail of the Ancients: Mid-experienced players who are still missing one or both tradu capes for the quest can get their kills up.
- Transmog: Even some expert players miss the transmog gear for one or more classes, having a cross-guild queue would allow to farm this gear way easier before reborn.
A level 20 queue would also be very nice for those in timezones with low player amounts on server. And make it easier for groups of 2 or 3 who gather to farm transmog gear.
(Likely it should be a random port just like it is with the three other dungeons, because it is going to be hard to find a random group for specific tradu dungeons.)
This is not meant as an alternative to the - hopefully - forthcoming incentives for Lvl 20s to join the existing queue for Rainforest, Maeo and Desert with lower players. But it would be nice for the mentioned activities which are rather hard to pursue without and the best thing, functionality and incentives are already there .
