I could see AH being kept there as it’s kinda a social hub for castle campers, but gladiators + Monya could be moved to the castle bits in Lirs (there’s a nice ring around the castle which would work pretty well). Also, mount retrieval is gonna be much more time consuming now; either have an additional mount retrieve elsewhere (I like Highshore idea) and maybe the bounty board.
But I get the reasoning behind global castle and I like it. Yeah it’s gonna be laggy for the first few weeks (#arena2), but that’ll hopefully drop off as they figure out how to get it to handle it all and people aren’t flooding the castle over “OMG NEW STUFF”; this’ll make the game feel MUCH more populated and will give people a cool area to socialize (*cough* trash talk ) during down times.
Edit: or make mount whistles obtainable and we can sidestep that issue entirely
