Hi there, This is mainly for new players out there who haven't really played the game before the release of Darkfall Rise of Agon. A common trap I see people falling into in Darkfall (both new and old) is constantly farming low level mobs. Personally, what I believe you should be doing is farming the hardest possible mobs you can take on safely, in the best possible gear you can acquire. I know a lot of people think that this is counter intuitive - you don't want to lose good gear right? Well think about what you're really doing for a second. If you're farming mobs much weaker than you can generally handle, then you're actually hurting your earnings potential from farming. Farming low level mobs with low ranked weapons will almost always be less profitable than farming higher leveled mobs with higher ranked weapons. You'll get the same skill gains from higher end mobs, face the same difficulty as lower level mobs fought in low level gear, but get much greater earnings from farming them. If you're finding yourself waiting around for mobs to spawn - ie you've skinned everything, taken everything of value, fully healed back and have nothing to do - then it's time to move on from that spawn. You've outgrown it. You should be seeking progressively harder mobs to farm. Even though, yes, these mobs might be in riskier areas to farm, generally the extra gold you will earn farming these mobs will more than pay for the occasional lost set of gear from a red. If you do find a particular spawn getting repeatedly hit by red's well above your level, then it's time to move on for a little while and find another spawn. When have you gone too far? If you find yourself completely beaten up and vulnerable at a spawn and can't even finish healing before the next lot spawns on top of you, then you've gone too far - you need to roll it back a bit and find a slightly easier mob to farm. Constantly struggling to stay alive whilst trying to farm mobs is probably worse than waiting around for mobs to spawn. It leaves your vulnerable to attack from other players You want something in between - you don't want mobs to be too challenging, and you don't mobs to be too easy. Think about how difficult you found the first goblin spawn you ever faced was when you were an hour old. You want something about on par with that for every spawn you face, possibly something slightly harder than that, seeing as the more you play the more you understand mechanics and the easier games should become. If you've been playing since launch and you're still sitting at the goblin spawns, you're wasting your time. Get out there.
