Honestly? I don't mind experience loss in an MMO, as long as its fairly balanced. FF 11 is the WRONG way to handle it, die enough (and if you are soloing that will be the case from my experiences), and you'll even de-level, one thing no one likes, or should at least.Hell, one of my favorite games is Demons Soul, and if you die in that, you have a chance to gain back your "exp" by finding your blood-stain/corpse. Die again though, and its lost forever.Thats a fair way of dealing with it, providing a way to make up for the xp post-death. It wouldn't be as easy as returning to your body in your MMO obviously, but creating a "debt bar" that can be removed through either in-game currency, perhaps even a rare drop on the world-loot list (level specific too if you feel risky), or by adding in a slightly boosted xp gain for anything gained in the debt zone.
