Rest XP: It ruins the game!

TL;DR:
=========================================


As it is right now, you gain rest XP (which doubles everything you kill) while:
  • Logged off in an unsafe area (Like the wilderness, outside a Cantina/Fleet)
  • You are logged in, Inside at the Fleet
  • You are dead

As someone who doesn't play all the time, I find my character is always rested, even with logging off outside Cantinas (I gain 2.5% rest xp of my level per day). I feel this contributes to the "leveling speed", some perceive as a problem. This rest XP is unavoidable. I think this should change.



You should NOT RECEIVE ANY rest xp:
  • If logged off, outside a Cantina/Rest Zone. [Your char is unsafe]
  • While logged on, at the Fleet. [You are not resting]
  • While dead. [Perhaps it is resting? It is the "Great Big Sleep" ]

You SHOULD RECEIVE rest xp:
  • If logged off, inside a Cantina/Rest Zone. [Your char is safely logged off, in a Rest Zone]
  • If logged on, inside a Cantina/bar. [Your char is safe in a small avoidable Rest Zone, socializing]
  • *Both of these may be increased to compensate for the lost stuff above, and provide incentive to hanging out in bars.

=========================================

Edits due to:
Best attempt now at the most concise possible form. You are welcome to look at page 3 for my original post. No more in-depth theory. It really just comes down to:

The longer it takes you to get to 50, is the more content you'll have to go through. This is crucial for providing players with an enjoyable, online MMO experience. Working towards a goal.

Gosh. Really? How did you read my post and respond in 2 minutes? Did you mean, it was too much to bother reading, so it seemed like a complicated solution? It's a pretty small fix, yet has a far-reaching impact to promote the longevity of the game.

I do a lot of these already. Look, we may disagree and you like the game the way it is. I'd never ask them to change that on you. This is why I'm not calling for a global XP cut to everyone. I would just like an option to play the game at my pace and not have it auto-level me.

I too wish to see high priority bugs fixed. Once they are addressed, peoples' suggestions are going to be key for growing this game for the masses. It's why MMO's of today have so many great, fun features.

What makes an MMO "massive", is to have it appeal to a massive number of people, not just one person.

I'm confused. Rested XP accumulates slowly in the game and makes a very very small difference in leveling speed.

If you don't want to out level content, don't run Warzones.

I am not sure of the implications of such a thing, but it might be nice if, as players, we could toggle some settings in preferences. Such things like, -30% xp cut / -20% xp cut / -10% xp cut / no rest xp, and maybe even a disable xp gain option altogether.

Stop whining. If you want to do gray quests, you can, you know that right? You're not deprived of anything.

You can still do quests below your level, they'll be a bit easier but that's about it.

Or you could, just, you know, not worry about XP and do whatever you wanted. It all evens out in the end.

OP, you only get it by logging in a safe zone. Log out in a city street if it's REALLY an issue to you.

Something about not having the ability to do what everyone playing the game has the ability to do or something like that.
