I have an idea for Orbus; a Fairground event that pops up once or twice a month for 3 to 7 days each time. (24/7 would be cool too but make prizes cost more)
There would be mini-games you can play as a daily quest. Once completed you can turn it in for a token/ticket/whatever for prizes such as mounts, pets, transmog sets, resources, etc.
You could come back time and time again to enjoy the activities (1 ticket per activity) and for those that like to grind things out. A hunt for rare spawns (flower/fish/mob-drop). After you collect 5+, you can turn them in for an additional ticket.
World Mobs/Flowers: There could be five or less on the map, and after one is collected/killed, it should have a 10-15 minute respawn timer.
For mob kills, instead of dropping tickets, they could drop an item that can be turned in for a ticket when you have a certain number.
Additionally, we could have a super-rare item that drops from any world-mob that can be exchanged for a single ticket. (This item would need to have a very low drop chance to prevent people from getting all the items to fast.)
Fishing: Maybe a unique fish (suggestions would be appreciated!).
Daily Orbus Fair Games:
[Mage] Mage Tournament: Same as the old one and/or make it so you can verse your friends to see who can get a higher score. The person that wins completes their quest, or they both complete it and that winner gets an extra ticket when they turn it in. (solo would be like the old Mage Tournament and versing someone would be for an extra ticket.)
[Musketeer] Shoot-Out: You have a set of orbs displayed that you need to have equipped, and there will be targets that pop up. If you shoot all the targets correctly, you complete the quest. (Maybe to earn an extra ticket, shoot additional targets for double the time).
Yellow = shoot with decurse
Red = shoot with impact
Green = shoot with a life well
Blue = shoot with renew
Purple = shoot with gravity
Crazy Maze: You spawn at the start of a [randomized] maze and must get to the finish in a certain amount of time.
Crazy Maze Bet: Same as above plus you pay 2000 dram into the pot; at the end of the Orbus Fair, the #1 ranked player gets to take the whole pot. (For this to work well, the maze-map would need to be changed every Fair.)
[Archer] Barrage: Similar to the mage tournament, two archers can vs each other for and extra ticket. At the start, a bunch of targets pop up in front of each player, the first one to knock them all down first wins. If solo, knock them all down in a certain amount of time to complete the quest.
[Scoundrel] Hot Shot: Same as “Arrow Barrage” but with a Scoundrel. (To earn an extra ticket, do it all with trick shots).
[Shaman] Dodgeball: Two Shamans faceoff and the first one to get hit five times loses. If playing solo, it would be you and an AI that you have to kill before it hits you.
[Paladin] The Floor Is Lava: With the paladin hammer, you have to hop from spot to spot without touching the red-lava-zone. If you do, you have to restart. If you make it to the other side, you complete the quest. (To earn a bonus ticket, do it within a certain amount of time.)
**[Bards] … you let me know… good luck
[Warriors] Smite: Two warriors face off on a single boss, the one to hold aggro the longest during a timed battle wins. Solo, can you go 3 min against the super-boss in which you need to survive?
I feel this game lacks small mini-games and things that keep people wanting to log in every day, this would be a great option to fix that or at least something like it.
