I am sure I will get crucified here, but not everyone enjoys being killed by someone when you are fighting a mob in the wilds. I am forced to go there for gathering/fishing and mob drops crucial to those things. I feel there should be comparable areas for those of us who just want to enjoy the game content and not lose hours of work because someone wants my stuff instead of gathering it themselves.
Also it is unrealistic to expect a group of people to watch out/guard while you fish.
Many games have an opt in system or different servers for people who love that kind of thing.
Please think about this for those of us who love to play but will never do PVP and will be griefed until we don’t play anymore.
