Based on this thread from the leadership rewards, i think the NPC trainer should be moved to somewhere less difficult and require less ranks to get an extra channel.
The trainer is in the PC area. I was going to pickup Eldon on that anyway, because i think its a ridiculously hard to reach area to put a trainer allowing more ss slots, i mean this should be available to the general populace with a little work, not in one of CL hardest areas of which we don't even go anymore. If this is what Eldon is refering to it really should be moved somewhere less difficult imo (and i'm not alone in that think).Lorikeet wrote:Is this something new you have done, or are you referring to that strange trainer that's really tough to get to that you need Mentus to train? I think a few extra slots were added that way, but I don't think that's what Taryn had in mind.Eldon wrote:Taryn wrote: 1. Increasing the sungem group beyond 5. 10-12 would be nice.

Having a trainer that requires an elite group to reach isn't "making it available to everyone." Not done as far as I'm concerned.
This trainer is in one of the most remote and well-protected snells in the entire CL world. From Orga Camp 1 it requires traveling through around 20-25 minimally to average danger snells, 3 heavy lightning-based chokepoint snells, and 9 web noid-packed snells. The portal in camp dred removes some of that but I'm ignoring that because this area was designed without the portal in mind and before it came into play. Oh and you'll also need a well-trained teleporting mystic with a strange stone, a large, strong, well-equipped group, and at least one pathfinder (although more would be better) that has more than 140 ranks of training. And finally, the trainer itself won't even recognize you unless you have at least 20 mentus. And even with 20 mentus 20 ranks from this trainer will only grant you *1* extra thinkgroup slot. ONE (for 40 ranks).
So that said, what's wrong with this picture? This kind of feature should be available to everybody and at a minimal rank cost.
It took alot of hard work and several failures for PAG to resch that trainer yet I have a feeling nobody in PAG would mind if that trainer suddenly appeared somewhere in town in some hut. It's collecting dust and being forgotten where it is now. Time to rectify this situation and make CL even better in a small way.
