You can't kill top mobs alone without using something like pinning ? yes, but why are you against it? why anyone should be able to kill top mob alone in mmorpg ? One shouldn't. So now lets imagine we removed this 'feature', 'bug' or whatever one wants to call this and we have to have more than 1 people to kill it.
Little stupid story
You need fighter with high lvl and with top armor and weapon that deals dmg of other kind than physical because dragon has too much armor to be hit by sword:Everything is right, imagine killing dragon with piece of wood or steel-impossible.
Ok so we need someone to deal some damage while he is busy with me, wait wait busy with me?! i have 300 hp and it hits for 100 and my top grade armor doesn't help at all! But i'm brave lets try anyway, ok hit hit restore hit hit hit restore ok diss tele, yeah i took some hp of him!!! WHAT ? 200hp?! and it has 5500, no way i can do it alone. Ok lets get some weaker people to help me, ya thats good idea. Ok i got some people lets try again....oops i attacked first but he ate all my friends when they attacked. Ok ok lets try one more this time i give them bows and arrows oh and lets try some magic....ok ok works well but now i have to flee because i have no more mana...ok great i'm fine...WHAT?! he ate them all after i fled....ok this time this one will heal me while i fight the dragon ...okok works fine.....WHAT? HELL?! HOW?! oh we got lagged, yeah i have 300 hp he kills me in 3 hits...yes i need more hp...but i can't! i have max i can have...and that one guy wasn't enough to heal me at all, i need 2 at least. Ok 2 healing 1 ranging and i'm tanking ....10min later...yeah we killed the beast now lets check what it dropped....Ohhhhhh dragon scale wonderful! it has be worth millions! it's been so hard to kill this beast...ok lets go to market.....hey does anyone want to buy dragon scale? yes i want to, i will pay you 4k coins. WHAT?!
End of little stupid talk
Here's an idea!
So first of all we need: better drops from mobs we would like to be killed in party
2-nd of all...we need someone with more hp to tank those mobs and someone with ability to keep mob attention on himself while other people kill it, in other game that would be tank with ability to keep aggro on himself. You've been playing with changing form for a while, why not make form that has 5-10 times more hp and HUGE damage reduction like 50%+ and skill that keep mob attention on him. Of course it won't be this 'human' form so he can't use spells-heal himself
Now we need someone who can heal our new tank, called cleric in mmorpgs, so now lets make another form, lets call it fairy form, it should have more mana -5-10 times more, like tank's hp and skill that allows him to heal, all kinds of heals, single, himself, group etc etc
That are just ideas, they would require lot of work to make it work, but if you want people to be more socialable while killing mobs, thats the way.
All the abilities in transformed form should heavily depend on player skill like a/d for tank and magic for healer, not like you can be super strong with 10 lvl char. And....dragons case is lost already make some new monsters with new uber drops
Can't be bother to read it again to check mistakes now will do it later
