Pls make names for bags
ConsMost active time to play is from 6am to 2pm PST so if you live in the US and work all day you may find that the game seems less populated than it actually is.The server is in France. My ping is usually around 150 and I live in the Pacific North West but it does not seem to interfere with my gameplay. Its possible there is an advantage to living in the US because load lag may be more noticeable? (load lag is when the game suddently lags for a split second or two because others are approaching) So if you want to PVE with less danger just pay attention to the load lag.The population is dwindling and game will not last forever so its best to join now if you ever want to play Darkfall of any kind again although you can still find fights in Rise of Agon but starting a new character might be a bit late for that game.When you die far away from your home back you may be out of the middle of nowhere when you spawn and have to run naked for awhile until you get back to your main bank... but this is not the case when you have transported goods to various spots for you all over the map where you want to be active.Riding on a mount is much more common and important in this game... at least you can carry good on the mount now and there is a sprint option so they are not as slow as before.You may find yourself lacking gear if you do not prepare for losses ahead of time by making crafter friends, crafting yourself, getting help from a clan, or buying things on the market.There are not many things on the market so you may have to make friends with some crafters or else not have any gear (or make stuff yourself but you only have 5 titles for your character so you cannot do everything like the old Darkfall).I find that the UI is not as good as ROA... I am using a macro on my keyboard for a couple things but its not a big deal and mostly because I have a special gaming keyboard.Without a LOT OF PRACTICE dueling you will most likely have a hard time with PVP. The average player is good with twitch-based combat.There is no more fast travel so if you have to get somewhere... it will take a long time and if you die along the way you maybe stuck out in the middle of nowhere until you run naked to the nearest bank. There is a way to kill yourself so that you can warp to a bind nearby but that is it. No recall or bindstones.
This is DND, not any other iteration of DF. Everything is slower, and more local. It is the way it is.
''The population is dwindling''Hmm, just as i thought.
Damn seems the pop has gone down lately,
Please understand that unlike during InDev, we are forced to communicate only once per week at most.
The writing of this reply has taken a bit more than a full man-day.
