    Just think of the poor souls farming on ice heights, csst, ahmsord, etc. Farming for hours upon end, with dozens and dozens of mob drops. As the player continues to farm, he struggles more and more to inspect each item...

    "this one could be a mythic"
    "or this one"
    "maybe the next one
    -arrrrrrgh!"


    Five mobs brutally smash an innocent adventurer to his death.

    Introduction
    Wynnexpansion used to have a feature similar to the one I am suggesting, but it caused an uneven playing field (which was unfair to those without the mod / knowledge of the mod). However, if the server ran this feature itself, it would be okay because the playing field would be even.

    Summary
    Upon finding a mythic [mob killed] [chest opened], there would be a huge upward beam effect (like 200 blocks), with the player's name around 3 blocks above the mythic drop (to prevent ppl fighting over the mythic hoping they get it). Perhaps legendaries could have a small outline too (no beam).

    Pros
    + Easier to see mythics / legendaries
    + Run by server - even playing field
    + Potential for more interactions / cool moments of seeing the beam from a distance
    + Eliminates fear of missing a mythic drop
    + Eliminates saltiness of feature being removed from wynnexpansion, converting salt to happiness


    Cons
    - programming time
    - extra lag?
    - viability? Is such a thing programmable?
    - potential increased jealously depending on the player's mindset / personality


    Any feedback appreciated

    @TurboStratus When you say that the beam effect is 200 blocks, what feature of it are you describing? And is the actual size of the beam itself the same size as shown in the picture?

    as in 200 blocks high, and a 1 block radius. In the game I'd anticipate it being a vertical beam that can be clearly seen even from a distance

    I agree i was farming in viserial cave and a used a potion with 1 left and i picked up a legendary spear
    so after that with like 100-300 items on the ground i went through all of them and found 10 more legendary's it took about 20 minutes to go through all so i think this would be a amazing for just seeing the items on the ground
