Titel: How to revive dead content

Name: Winterklinge
Region: EU

We have a lot of dead content in the game and even more that's not even doable anymore, cause PA took it out for "redesign". Its time to bring back those contents (after some small changes) and make this game more fun and active again. Atm all our events are mostly "be online", "stand around half afk", "grind as you would usually do anyway...:" events and that's boring. So lets switch things up a bit. Make dead content into rotating events!

Dead content e.g. Altar of Blood, Altar of Training Ranking (Kama Content), Mirumok Watcher/Destroyer Offin Ranking, Shadow Arena (died as extra content), Savage Rift, and probably many more I don't remember, should make a Comeback! But not like we knew it (cause that obvious didn't work out) but rather as events. Redesign them as such. So 1 big reward and then maybe weekly and daily reward for doing it. Nothing that breaks the game (as did Shadow Arena back then) and not as underwhelming and useless as Dark Rift was. And then keep rotating those Events so you only got 1 for like 1-2 months and then the next ones comes in. So it doesn't get to boring and there is always something "new" to do. This system works well for AoS. When its there ppl love it and go for it a ton until the season ends...and they do not get tired of it, cause it doesn't stay in the game forever.

It would also help redesign some of the content. For example: the Offin Bosses are now absolutely to weak for the guilds and would have to become stronger and more tanky, also maybe a Solo Version would be cool for a "personal" ranking for ppl without a guild. Altar of Training also would need to become a bit harder to post a real challenge at this point. And the rankings for those bosses should be whipped clean after a season ends of course.
Altar of blood was a lot fun, but could use a few more level to keep pushing yourself further and further. 
...

And there could be new ones: Like special RBF 

With those content being events only, the rewards can be better balanced and switched out if they are to good or to bad overall in the next round. there wouldn't be a permanent money factor that would have to be considered.

Dead content is dead in bdo always for the same reasons: requires a party + does not offer any valuable rewards.

If Altar of Blood, Savage Rift, Horse Racing and Atoraxxion (true solo modes, not pseudo solo modes without rewards) offered a solo mode with valuable rewards (they can be limited weekly like Atoraxxion) and were not extremely difficult, I would play them all the time, just like I do 5 bosses in Black Shrine every week (but only Calamity 1 and 2 because these bosses are not balanced for all classes and I see no point in wasting my time and sanity on them).

Can probably add war of the roses soon since nobody gonna want to do it with 1 guild consistenly dominating.

Wanna talk about dead content, look at what they did to SHULTZ. Haha. That used to be such a fun spot! I can bodybag trees solo, and that's higher end content, but freaking schultz is still impossible to solo.

As for party stuff, they just need rewards. All things you have to get people together to do should give better rewards to all involved. Including stuff like scrolls.

I dunno if I agree with making things more solo tho! They do need to buff solo stuff, but there is a lot of solo stuff already.

I want them to put in rewarding group stuff to do that doesn't require much gear at all so you have fun things to play with your noob friends that get them progressing and you as the established player don't feel like you're accepting a huge hit to how much money you could be making by yourself
