well, i still like getting drops. whats the point of getting high level if i cant help my alts and my friends. quite frankly, an aggy drop is my best source of income (or best items i would trade).
i am good having it be at start of battle. i would not require that 3 grps be present, or any countdown - hard to police. if a grp starts prematurely, they will wipe out then everyone who showed up can join. if they dont, then they deserve the kill.
i would keep the level at 140 (120 for druids) - that is the standard for all our bosses.
also keep in mind, our fair and consistent dicing methods, though unwieldy sometimes, are what makes Lugh a friendly and cooperative place.
