    I agree. Cairn is the only place where the portals are decent.

    More portals and 1 portal for each destination that can be used to send you backward would be good enough.

    It shouln't always be about p-shards in the end.

    This is a kick in the balls to those playing during the F2P period.

    I returned 1 month ago after 1 year, playing almost daily. Got into a clan - had some bang for 3 days. Realized my bank was poor AF, as i was starting to lack gear and gold to buy regs and pshards etc to keep up with the bang rate.
    I decided to exit the clan to make some bank on my own rythm and not be a scrub always asking for stuff.
    And now there are no pshards nor runestones.
    And that's what i did, i pressed that log out button.

    I don't like the changes considering that I'm coming back to the game and don't have tons of shit in my bank.

    Portal shards are a commodity that everyone needs access to. Putting the only decent drop rate on 1 spawn really fucks over newbies and guarantees that portal shards on the ah will be ridiculously priced. If you want to create hotspots with it, a better option would be to put it on easy night spawns like night hags and ghosts on the mainland. This way, their supply can easily be kept in check while still allowing players to farm what they need, it creates low risk pvp hotspots (non-inventory drop was removed in lawful lands, right?), and gives the game a laid-back natural group activity (whether or not they are actually in the same party with the other blues) that helps integrate newbies with the community in a way that's not too punishing even if reds roll up and kill them.

    I can't remember exactly how the day/night cycle works but iirc night came ridiculously quick, so the evening would need to be a bit longer so that people can get to the spawns by the time night arrives. It would probably take some rejiggering of the night timer in general and spawn locations too. Maybe remove some and add some next to low value holdings.

    Portal shards should be PLENTIFUL. That's how you get people to buy and sell them. For my suggestion I'll just throw out some numbers. Say 5 mob types at each level of difficulty (based on the in game map very easy, easy, medium, etc) drop shards. At very easy you do like 1 in 25, easy 1 in 20, medium 1 in 15, hard 1 in 10, very hard 1 in 5 and then boss mobs that drop shards would at the very least do 1 for 1 possibly more on their drop. Then you have places for every level of player to hit and farm and a rate that reflects the difficulty of the mob.

    Or they could ditch the day night complications and just put them on an easy mage mob like malaut acolytes. Then newbies could get like 10 per hour farming an easy mob that also drops good regs. Wouldn’t necessarily be enough for constantly porting and also selling excess on markets, but maybe enough for a casual player to farm an hour and have a couple days worth of ports that can complement the multiple bind options and wilderness portals.

    If you are going to make it this aids to port around can you please make it to where 1 portal shard = 1 port instead of 2 shards. Haven’t tried it out yet but I’m not liking what I see on paper.

    And @sqaunto is right about there needing to be a good mob to farm. And honestly as good as the pop has been for this free period I’d come out and tell us which mob is the very best and the drop rate. And it really should be worth while to farm cause it will create a hot spot.

    Regionalization is great.


    I love being able to sit in a region of the world and farm it, protect it, etc.




    Looking forward to future patches regarding regionalization, i think this is the right track.

    Small changes make huge waves in Darkfall. Beautiful decision to have 2 teams. 1 for big patches, 1 for small changes. BEAUTIFUL. *clap*

    Logged in, went to a siege, had fun. Looked at my runebook, no shards, 10k per in the market, logged out. Basically no way im resubbing with the current state of things. Should just put them back on the vendor and stop making changes that are not needed.

    I dun wanna tell anyone how to do their job, but......

    Wouldn't it be smarter to make Portal Shards Craftable like 100 Lesser Magic Essence so that you can keep the gold sink and drop Magical Essence on Villages with 50-100 some Lesser Magical Essences 100% every time even if you fail to win the Villages just for showing up.
