    Just curious what people use in this game.

    - Mage or Destro?

    - In game sensitivity?

    - Mouse dpi?

    800 dpi, 1 in game
    But honestly its just what ever you practice with and how big your mouse pad is, I know a lot of good players with extremely low sense and a lot with extremely high sense. What ever you choose stick with it and practice your ass off with it.

    I constantly try to keep it as low as possible. Performing perfect figure-8 is what matters to me. I'm even surprise how high ppl go sometime, but then i'm not surprise at all for the fact that they are missing so many rays in their videos.

    Best way to gauge sensitivity is by your 360 in-game. My 360 in-game is 12 inches.

    I tired 800 dpi for a while, didn't like it. Still feel like mines too high.

    I feel slightly higher sens is fine in DF compared to most other FPS. The majority of fighting is mid to short range, relying on quick turns and rapid tracking.

    Most other FPS, quake, counter strike etc. Have short range fights here and there, but the majority of aiming is at a mid to long range. Quake may be an exception simply because the movement and pacing is incredibly fast, but a lower sens in those games allows for much high accuracy in the long run.

    Just my thoughts, I'm no pro but I do talk to many skilled players about their thoughts on sensitivity settings in most FPS games

    Eternal strugglebus between high enough for melee but slow enough for spell aim. From playing arena shooters, i've gotten to where I like my FPS aim set fairly low so I can make larger movements for more precise twitch. This lower sens makes it impossible to melee spin though.

    As for low sense being hard to meele, Not true, you just have to practice the movements of the sharp turns regularly.

    IDK, I changed to 1600 : .74 last night and already noticed an improvement. The problem is I get lazy a lot and don't want to do the full motion arm turns on my mouse and just use slight wrist jerks (bad IK).

    Zowie EC1-A only has 4 preset DPI settings (400/800/1600/3200). I wish I could set it to 1200, I feel like that area would be my sweet spot.

    Everyone is different, depending on preference. A lot of people play with low sensitivity now, thanks to many fps games that encourage low sensitivity.

    Traditionally darkfall mages had lower sensitivities than destroyers.
    In dfo, many of the top destroyers in the game played with extremely high sens.
