Mechanics[edit | edit source]
PvE mostly focuses on the exploration of the game itself, quite often with a emphasis on teamplay. As a solo PvE'er, you can emerse yourself in the world taking shape around you and watch the amusing stories of the creators unfold. When playing as a group, most often in a Instance, PvE play focuses the team effort and synchronization it takes to overcome monsters with artificial intelligence.
Playing on a PvE server also means safety from fellows, and less conflict. As it stresses teamplay it leads to a more productive local society with co-operation at focus as opposed to competition. You may still be faced with competition between groups of players, such as the pressure to, as a guild, accomplish more than the next guild.
