I would certainly played something like this because it's clean and simple,it offers the game you know and you loved.
My suggestions,if you'd like to consider some opinions,
make AA and Adenas very valuable, A/S grade on shop without SA and sealed, Lifestones and Bogs and such Misc usefull stuff make 'em very very very hard to obtain.
Safe/Max +4, +8 35%
Keep Nob only retail way
Give some bosses a meaning with some helpfull drops
PS: Don't expect many players,playing community is pure trash these days
PS: No matter the online you'll get, doesn't mean it is a bad server,people who like this game and the server,will play the game they love.
