    I find it comical when people rage at begone as if it were a one shot one kill spell. There are so many ways to deal with it if you want to run. Use terrain, use elevation changes, manage your mount stamina, carry two mounts, encourage them to bhop and then turn on them when they are low hp, bhop is straight line only so lure them to bhop in one direction and turn the other way...I'm sure there is more options I'm not thinking of at the moment get creative. I am just tired of hearing " OMGZ they cast begones and 1000 puppies died and like everyone quit darkfall". Take it or leave it, wont change my opinion of Roa but I assure you the ones screaming the loudest and grossly over exaggerating its effect on the game will never be satisfied until they have a personal I win button built into their GUI, preferably depressed with nothing more than a thought..... Just sayin

    I will be happy when bunny hopping is gone. begone as it is is fine. bunny hopping isn't. this isn't an arena it's a rpg.

    Actually I feel begone shouldn't hit the caster at all. it's begone to make people begone... not super hop. take knock up off spikes. make shrapnel not propel the caster either.

    I get the feeling they dont intend to remove it based on the last change they made, making it so you could bhop in any direction instead of just the northern one. A change like that at least suggests to me they will let it stand. Im no coder/developer but I am an R&D engineer and I never make improvements to something I plan to shitcan. But again it doesnt make or break the game for me personally.

    Well we're not out of the woods on the subject. Because the directional change was a bug that effected all knockback and movement abilities.

    what the fuck does either an RPG or an Arena have to do with bunny hopping?

    Because a rpg is a more logically based progression game. an arena is balls to the wall pvp with all kinds of wacky mechanics. darkfall isn't reality based but come on. bunny hopping should kill your player after a couple jumps at least.

    If you want to nerf god hops, bring back 75 Begone. With 50 Begone it's actually really easy to get no-damage hops.

    Bunnyhopping was one of the reasons the group I played with at launch decided to move on from darkfall.

    This isn't an arena shooter.

    begone should be PBAOE knockback with a staff casting animation of slamming the ground with your staff like gandalf and your char should scream on spell charge up" YOU SHALL NOT" and then " PASS !!!" on release. tho i would only use it like this " YOU SHALL NOT .... BANK STARE!!!" at my bank 24/7

    Who is that and why is his attitude so shitty? and why would you want people to think you share his shitty opinions that will keep this game at a low pop forever.

    The original designer of Darkfall before AV purchased his company named Razorwax. He also owned 40% of the AV stock shares until 2015.

    Also the rationale is: Because people are dissatisfied with the mainstream MMOs, they wanted to design a niche MMO.

    Imagine that, a self entitled person with a physical handicap that can only play the game with one hand wants the game dumbed down so its easier to play with one hand.

    Hahaha.

    I'm all for bhopping in CSGO and Quake, and even Darkfall for that matter. I do think the Darkfall BHOP needs to be limited in some way but not sure if the physics system could handle it in the way I envision. Infinite hops is probably bad game design, having a limit to like 6-7 hops and then you can pop a mount and sprint would be fine I think. Would want other peoples opinions on that one.

    I do think bspikes should do more self damage.

    Poor guy. your life must be pretty shitty to try and make fun of a "disabled person" for something that was explained in plain English had nothing to do with the original post. I think you need to take both reading comprehension courses and some sessions with a psychiatrist. you have my pity sir
