This is a horrible idea.
Why do people want to make the game so easy it simply becomes silly?
This could only work out in case you pay some gold or make items lose more durability to do so.
yeah running all the way through empty corridors sure gives us a great challenge.
It's not a challenge, it's:
1. Your punishment for dying
2. To make death meaningful
3. To keep people from just zerging down packs... It makes it more efficient to kill them without dying, rather than just glass cannoning and spawning on top of your corpse and then blowing them up till you die again.. Even with repair costs (or stacking no dura hit items) people would still do this.
Seriously, you people need to relive the days of:
Corpse runs in EQ
Contra and Super C
Zelda?! Even a game with Checkpoints and saving puts at the beginning of the dungeon when you die.
This insanity of checkpoints every two feet in games, and the "YOU WIN ******" screen being handed to people in games now days is sickening.
You've turned first place trophies into participant sashes.
