I imagined it as an account wide value. Otherwise, I could just create newbie after newbie and let someone "help" me, even though I already have 5 top level toons. The "mentor stat" is the true indicator of a real newbie player.As I see it, if that thought is being put in consideration, than the mentor stat should be a general stat which is automatically with any character one person got - otherwise it would not make that much sense as your example showed so nicelyWelcome Olepi ... and glad you mentioned " mentor stat" ...In your thinking is that " mentor stat " just for that toon or for any toon on your account ??? ...How about a mentor stat? Based on an experience index; as you play, you increase the experience index. Even a level 1 could have a high index if they play lots of alts.
So, help a true new player, based on their low index, and you get points to allocate into something. Craft something for a low index player, get more points. etc.
If one would roll out a low lvl toon to help another toon ( just for the alt-a-holics in us all ) would that " Mentor Stat " show on you lvl 1 toon ???
You wouldn't get much credit for helping a low level toon of a high level player. Whereas helping a low level toon of an actual new player would get you points.
