I join the opinion of you both. To set up elite mode would be pretty good cause alt farmers actually have to work for their chars to mak something outta them. But 5k might be a little too high and it will be offense against cause then lower ranks couldnt participate , that is why i would set up some like 3k. Its not too much (a bit a experienced support general) and yet we'll have a lot less alt farmer.
And as Katana said, with only two generals for the whole Campaign, we would have highly less farmers and 1 +3ers - cause you gotta fight whatever comes.
In easy signs said : +1 to ya both
Sorry but I disagree with you. Someone who really start DWO for very first time he/she:
-dont know about Campaign.
-dont know how to help at Campaign.
-dont know what to do at Campaign.
-dont have necessary weapons for Campaign (we all know you can NOT help at Campaign using the same weapon in all battles).
Only alt-farmers would come with a so low and lame excuse (no, I do not accuse or blame you).
But I have an answer for you too.
Think a bit please, we have Showdown in every 2 weeks:
24 battles per day, Saturday and Sunday.
Now let's be real, almost everybody farm Showdowns for honor, very rarely players fight at Showdown (only first and last Mosou and Elite can meet enemy).
24 battles x 20 Honor (doing Musou) = 480 Honor per day.
480 Honor x 2 days (Saturday and Sunday) = 960 Honor per weekend.
I dont count bonus honor events or extra Showdowns or Survival Matches which also helps you to get 5.000 Honor in 1-2 months maximum.
Then you can farm or do CF and practice. Look for necessary weapons which you need at Campaign, etc.
And anyway the very new players need to prepare gears, weapons and items to be helpful and useful in a Campaign. NOT to create an account and go directly in Campaign without any armor, items and using the first weapon: Spear.
