    I would like roa devs to hold a tournament where people sign into chars that are all equal, and have all spells and same gear.

    3v3, refed by the devs, anyone can join. No prize except to be in the publicity video.

    I've seen the same arguments since the day i logged on. People quit because of character difference yadda yadda.

    People quit because they can't handle the type of game darkfall is, it has nothing to do with characters lol. I want people to see how much player skill makes a difference and not 2 weeks of grinding.

    Giving people max chars will not make them stay, it will be the same people quitting except they'll do it faster because they worked for nothing

    Theres no need to put it to rest m8. Those people who are complaining already prove they are dogshit by not being able to grind their characters.

    Games so fkin e z its stupid.

    Tell em to go fkin bank stare like the useless sacks of poo they is.

    Man this thread is terrible. It should be deleted and you should feel bad for making it


    Nobody. I repeat. Nobody ever claimed that a noob could beat a 2009 veteran if the chars were equal

    People are saying that reducing the grind would help RETAIN a HEALTHY POPULATION

    I swear it seems like everyone with the legend tag has their head so far up this games ass

    No dude. We don't, the grind is practically nothing. If i can no life a character in 2 weeks, you can life a character in a month.


    Fire - 75
    Necro - 90
    Earth - 80
    Arcane - 50
    Air - 75

    Pick 2 90s and go for em

    You're viable. Quit your fucking bitching.

    Nope that's not how things work you bum

    No life veterans know where to go. They know what to do. They know how to do it.

    Casual players operate much differently

    I've played about 6 hours.. grind seems fine. I don't know how scrolls work yet but with those I don't see a grind problem. Especially after reading 75+ only has about 2 points of dmg increase on a 50+ skill... I don't know how slow stats are though so.....

    Lemme write a quick tip guide for the noobs:

    Grab 500 of the reg of the school you want to grind.
    Grab 50 in every other reg.
    Grab a staff.
    GO KILL MOBS WITH THE BOLT OF THE SCHOOL YOU WANNA GRIND THAT WILL NET YOU YOUR REGS BACK.
    Rinse and repeat until you aren't a fucking noob.

    Actually it will you bum. You do nothing productive all day yet you somehow think that you have the brains to analyze this situation.

    Currently a noob will spend months spamming bolts


    Cut that time down or change the nature of pve and they will be able to get to the real meat and potatoes of the game quicker

    Guess what quicker means? Less chance that they quit in those months that they would have been spamming thousands of bolts

    You don't need to farm anything specific to lvl magic. You are just crying to cry at this point. And it's kinda sad.

    oh look another rando-mcrandoson that thinks he knows whats best for the game he just started playing.

    Im curious what you think the meat and potatoes of the game is... I really am.

    You arent spending months spamming bolts, if you are, it's either:

    A. You're a noob that cant hit a bolt against a shitty ai
    B. You have 0 time to play video games and have no business playing Darkfall (WoW might best suit your quick fix of dopamine, give it to me now, tantrum throwing intrests, its thataway ---->)

    If you cant play darkfall for 2-3 hours a day, you should prolly go change your kids diaper, and take him for walks instead.

    Protip: Next time, use a condom.

    And finally the truth is revealed. You don't want darkfall to be viable for casual players

    I'm done here

    What's your approximate total playtime?

    Oh right you probably won't tell us. Would be embarrassing

    I've been playing about as casual as possible, and my destro is 100% viable. My stats are low, but a good player could take my character and wreck people. The mage grind is pretty heavy to get EVERYTHING, but you don't need everything to be viable...focus on 2-3 schools and you're fine.

    I'll settle this very simply.

    Vets will always be ahead of casuals. As such everything in life time and commitment do a lot.

    Not just character progression, as that gap will continue to close to the point, it's non existent. The real difference is player skill.

    Someone who puts in 40+ hours a week will beat out someone who puts in 10. That experience of the actual player skill, will generally beat out someone who doesn't put it in.

    This applies to all games. Even a MOBA where there's no real character progression other than within the game, which is wiped after the fact, player skill makes all the difference.

    Since a lot of the spells are front-loaded now, the huge power spike is gone, so you don't need every single spell level 99 to do real damage.

    People need to stop whining, and actually play the game. 99% of my time I spend crafting, trading and interacting with people within the game, my player skill is garbage, but I still have fun. I lose almost all my fights but again it's just a game, and I am improving over time. Will I beat out someone who just pvps all day? No, but it is not from lack of character progression. It comes down to, their decision making is so much better than mine, as they have the experience.

    i play 4ish hours a day, sometimes a little more, sometimes less.

    You make a terrible case for yourself. people try to reason with you and you just start bashing people for being a vet or supporting the game (legend tag).

    This conversation is over since you can't keep a level head.
