Shared Topic Idea: The Consequences of Death in an MMO

How do you think dying in an MMO should affect the characters? In WoW we have a relatively insignificant repair cost from durability for a PVE death and no consequence for dying to another player. Do you think this is enough, too much, or needing improvement? Tie-ins to related MMO's or multiplayer games and what sort of repricussion there is for failure there can be a good way to explain your thoughts.

I've discussed a few of my thoughts here but I've had more since writing the article and might add more to it later on.

This is my first time suggesting a shared topic, so I hope I've done it in the correct fashion.

I jumped on this because it's something I'd been thinking about already, so great minds and all that. :)

I'm taking this on as my shared for this week, although I didn't quite get through everything I wanted to say so I will have to come back around to this idea again in the future. (Apparently 850 words is not enough death for me.)
