but if you play an MMO and after a year of loot you loose everything, the first thing you think about is to rage-quit the game...
Then you are playing the wrong game from beginning.
Alos remember, if you are that terrified of loosing your stuff, you can play on Arboreus and be "safe". Occasionally take adventures on other worlds, and even if you are killed there, you still return to Arboreus after, where your home is waiting for you, safe.
I'm not worried about the challenge, as punishing as it is, I just don't have the time. I won't start fresh, when I can barely play few hours a day. That's why I won't play on Thartaros for sure. I just wonder if you're not asking for Syndesia to become as mush hardcore as Thartaros would probably already be.
