    Yeah if you don't like grinding and all you like is PvP then go play an arena based pvp game. They are more balanced and more skill based. This game was built on old school MMORPGs with heavy grinding elements such as Ultima Online and Shadowbane. The grind is half the game. Most of the players here come here because they enjoy the grind.

    There is no other game that is like quake with staffs and swords though... this is it. I just dont want to have to do all the other bull shit like kill pve mobs all day every day in order to enjoy a few mins of pvp. That is the game though and ill just have to take it or you know do what ive been doing and thats not logging in at all.

    That would be masochism. I enjoy Darkfall in it's current state in spite of the grind not because of it.

    I think they character grind is about right but they should lower it or offer skill up weekends as the game gets older.

    The problem I see is in the gear grind for casual players. Especially for heavy geared players.

    And you do realize that when you have a maxed character in this game there's nothing left to do but PvP right? The grind is currently ALL the content this game has to offer. The rest of it is player created. If you aren't having fun in this game, you're playing it the wrong way.

    The only thing that MAYBE they should change is the rate magic schools gain That's it.

    Then you're playing the wrong genre.

    if you're a casual player then you should expect to only be able to compete with other casual players, stay out of the good spawns that vets will go to and stick to the newbie areas with the other newbies. is there something fundamentally wrong with that? it's not a bad thing to be a casual player but you can't expect to compete with players who are putting in a lot of time.

    sometimes you get jumped while trying to grind up by someone who no-lifed and that sucks. but the map is HUGE and you have to play smart if that keeps happening to you, not whine about it on the boards

    Again yes. No one said they aren't having fun. I've seen what end game is like in beta before the skill gain increase. I don't mind the gear grind. It's just the skill grind for melee wep and magic from 80-100. Why can't melee grind be as fast as archery?
