    For everyone that is new to Darkfall with RoA, meaning that you have not played the original Darkfall and / or do not really know what PvP looks like in this game, I think this is a must watch video:

    https://forums.darkfallriseofagon.com/threads/the-great-escape-ft-coach-gotja.11400/

    Bottom line: you need to master bunny hopping to be part of any PvP fight, whether you like it or not.

    I think this is really important to understand for everyone because as you see in that 10 minutes video there is about 9 minutes of bunny hopping and one minute of fight at the very end.

    You dont need to master bunnyhopping to be apart of any pvp fight thats just bs

    Sure it can be a useful tool, but in no way is it a requirement and many people are a great addition to a siege force without being a bunnyhop master.

    People tend to forget that sieges are the real pvp, bunnyhopping isnt winning you a siege sorry to burst your bubble.

    you literally just have to tap space bar kids, its not a revolutionary mechanic i suggest you jump out of your snowflake comfort zone and press space together with me, come on you can follow along at home kids

    Bunny hopping isn't difficult. The shit part of the mechanic is you can't go too hard chasing because you risk getting cheesed. The runner has nothing to lose because they're behind. The chaser is losing advantage while chasing. This is the age old Darkfall problem with bhopping.

    Can confirm. Killing people who bunnyhop to catch up to you is easy when theyre at 50% hp lmao. Easiest bait of my life being on a mount

    I think the only solution is to buff magma.

    Only if 1 party starts hoping. Really depends on player skill level. OFC better players are going to wanna use every asset available to them.

    Yep. I've been watching streams/videos and it is just stupid easy to escape. You can go super hard bunny hopping down to 1 HP as long as you get far enough away you just mount Sprint to safety. The chasers can't go as hard or they risk getting one shot by the guy running.

    I doubt this will ever change as the elite forums minority love this mechanic as it makes it very easy for them to fight whoever they want with little risk of dying.

    @Galwen Sorry, but you're terribly naive if you think you need to be even remotely decent at bunnyhopping to be good at PvP or even participate in PvP at the highest levels.

    I'm arguably one of the best players on the server and I'm absolutely HORRIBLE at bunny hopping.

    lol or you could just fight??

    i played darkfall since the beginning. bhopping happens a lot but 90% of my fights had no bhopping in it cuz you know............ we faught

    the stam and health costs are not usually worth it. if you are a new player dont start employing this strategy thinking it will help you. learn to fight its an infinitely more valuable skill

    lol

    if someone tries to hop away an arrow shot to the back will really fuck them up

    and you can only bhop to the east if i remember? unless that was somehow fixed...

    I prefer the turn around and leave method. They will come back to you.

    Exactly which spells and what level do you bring them to have several options like they do do bunny hop? I know they are using begone and looks to be explosion. What are the others?

    In the amount of time it takes to make a post complaining about bunny hopping you could have learned how to bunny hop yourself, became a better player, and realized it's one of the better features this game has. Bunny hopping takes your stamina and health as seen in this video. All they needed to do was hit him once in the 10 minutes they chased, and they couldn't do it.
