1. You lose 10% durability per death (mob/pk doesn't matter), as you should. 10% does not even take 5 minutes to farm. If you manage to go to 1% you can grind this gold in an hour. There SHOULD be some penalty for dying.
2. There's basically no pvp in this game. Period....if you combine all the pk's since the game began I guarantee you, you will not even average 25 a day. Currently I have the most known pk's of any active player and I am only in the 400's and maybe kill 2-3 people per day for the last 2-3 weeks. It is a pk map for a reason, if one does not wish to participate in pvp, they can merely choose not to enter the map. As it stands there is absolutely no incentive to pk anyone, which makes it less frequent than it should be.
3. Ummm...no, just no. Restricting any map to certain times for certain factions is a terrible idea. You know what will happen? During SG's time I'll just log my alt and go kill bosses on it and trade the gear back to my TK. *shrugs* People seem to forget the end game gear, is on a pk map for a reason. There SHOULD be risk involved with obtaining the best currently avaialble gear....otherwise just get rid of pk altogether and put the gear in a dungeon.
4. meh I am of the opinion merc's should not be allowed on the pk map period. However, it seems the dev's disagree with me on this point, so as such I don't see any harm in this. I would prefer though if merc's and potions were disabled as it is a pk map, but I guess that's just me.
All in all, your complaints center around the fact you entered a pk map and got killed. It happens, but let's not pretend it happens all the time. You have played since beta, that's over 2 months and you have 19 pk deaths.....19! and yet you cry? There are people with 200+, I myself am encrouching upon 100, but you realize this risk when you enter a pk map. To top it off, one of your characters is also an archer, so you have the luxury of walking around the map stealthed, further limiting the odds of you getting pked. A person does not need to enter the pk map to cap, they do not "need" orange gear, especially if they are not going to pk, the 63's are a fine alternative if all someone is interested in is grinding. Also, there are a plethora of oranges now on the AH for sale due to the current boss spawning event, so grinding gold and buying the gear is now a real possibility. Yes, it is expensive, but if one does not want to take a small risk of getting pked, then that is another choice. While we're on this subject though, come on.....the penalty for being pked is a joke. If you can't grind back the gold from being pked, then why are you even playing? Not even an hour man......not even an hour and that's after 10 pk's.....
