    Mounted attacks still do back damage to parrying targets sometimes. Kind of retarded.

    I thought the hundreds of posts of crying for a mounted combat nerf since my first video meant people cared.

    You have to parry towards a swing to block it. If you put your back towards the impact point, you'll get hit in the back.

    No, people are leaving because of lack of content when they are finished their characters. This patch was a separate patch from their larger patch cycle. Should they not address issues in game just because they arent "new content" related

    You basically answered your own question.

    Most of the Sele Golems are in locations that require a good bit of travel time. Then, you would kill one for 1-2 ore...then wait. That's not fun.

    It's great they increased the drop rate, but those Golems on far away island are still on far away islands. Now, the increased drop rate certainly makes up for the bit of travel time, but the same issue remains. There are a very limited amount of Sele Golems, which is almost base line PvP gear. Adding 2 to the main lands, doesn't really address the issue.

    People need to remember that Armor and Weapons are the tools that allow you to play this game. If you frustrate people and make them feel entire masteries of armor and weapons are not worth their time, they get discouraged. I hope that one day in Darkfall, the content int he game reins king, not the never ending, main content focus of farming armor and weapons.

    i really dont understand your concern. Do you want them to add in 20 new sele golem spawns and increase drop rates by 10x? Is your complaint that a casual who has 30m a day to play isnt able to farm up enough sele or for a FP set?

    Now I didn't say there needs to be 20 new spawns, I simply said 2 new spawns and the increased drop rate isn't quite enough.

    Darkfall requires too much grinding. The more expensive gear is harder for casual / less skilled players to obtain and significantly easier to lose. The nature of Darkfall requires you to constantly refarm the same materials. If these materials are in crappy locations, it still does not solve the problem. Selentine should be abundant, honestly. Anyone that has a problem with that is just being ridiculous.

    Let me ask you a question Kurise - if people had more access to buy the materials needed for crafting from other players, would it help alleviate part of the issue you're bringing up? Right now it is rather difficult to buy and sell wares from others, especially those outside of your clan or alliance. We want to have the Deployable Player Vendor system help address part of this problem and will be opening up the design thread on that topic this evening.

    One of the things you can expect now that we have moved into our post-launch development cycle is that the feedback we receive from the community will help shape the systems we are working on. For this month we will be focusing our discussions on Deployable Player Vendors, the new Tasks coming in, and Champion Loot.

    This in no way reduces the grind... Trading is the last thing on players minds. Trading is so easy now that everyone is in sanguine and the eaze of accessing the clan banks now if you are a recruit. I am not sure that spending precious resources on trading is a good use of time, considering the number one complaint is the grind and lack of content..

    Why should selentine be abundant when it's a rare ore?

    Darkfall is a game that rewards skill in the form of positioning and aim. Players who practice can beat players who are better geared with superior aim and positioning.

    Don't believe me? I bet we could put you or the 20 other players complaining in full plate with r60s and you'd lose to @Animal with him wearing studded leather and using r40s.

    The reason that nobody is selling anything is NOT a lack of player vendors LOL

    The overall game is not conducive to an effective economy. The end game is 100% pvp. Therefore every end game player requires the same materials to make gearbags and there is almost zero incentive for people to farm for anyone aside from themselves unless they plan to sell for RMT.

    Like just think about it. What's my incentive to sell my selentine or q3/4 mats? To get gold? Then what will I use the gold for??

    Good changes, steps in the right direction for sure (mostly). I don't think there is a problem with the grind right now, like others have stated the problem is once the grind is finished there is nothing else to do but bank stare / log off. Don't know why anyone is complaining about the selentine golem changes, they are definitely needed and while not everything that is needed they are definitely a positive change.
