General Discussion / Re: Let's Talk About Skill Gains...

This might be an unpopular opinion that I am about to bring up...

I am beginning to think skill gains at launch will be going too fast. 

I just started logging (Gathering wood) on my ALT to get the mastery for it come launch day.  I've gone from 1 - 50 in roughly 30 minutes without using the power hour.  Now assuming skill gains are roughly 6 - 7x faster than they will be on launch right now I have done the math and 1x is still awfully fast.   Like it or not the skill grind in Darkfall is a big part of what keeps people coming back.. and will be key in providing the developers time enough to introduce the gameplay changes they would like to.

I could be wrong because things could end up scaling differently at the higher levels... I just wanted to mention it.  I hope my math it wrong because of other factors I've not been able to include. 

Keep in mind this was done on trees yielding a large amount of resources per tree due to being on Ruby.  TITLE is / was on but not yet maxed level.


I'm more worried about the gains of scaling a fire dragon with 30 people with power hour enabled, 75 archery in an hour?

I hope skill gains will be very slow & there is a cap on % boost from scaling, I believe there is I just can't be arsed to find the actual numbers hopefully someone knows.

I was under the assumption that the amount of damage you do is a major factor for the skillgains. So if you scale up the fire dragon with 30 people in the first couple of weeks you will be doing crap no damage with your shitty low rank bows thus the skillgains shouldnt be high. At least that is how i understood it.

Mycke is just plain mean!
As returning player  I just wanted to ask him questions about the game, instantly invited me on comms and just data dumped to me most of all the changes in the game.

That bastard!

Then he gave me a full loot bag and him and a few of his buddies helped me level and then proceed to some duels and practice. Shit loads of regs and food, arrows etc. Shit he spent the entire beta grinding up and obtaining with his clan mates. I mean his ponzi pawns!!!!111 . I bet he's just trying to get people to give him all the materials on launch so he can horde them all, take screenshots and show it off to all the bitches dressed like jinx at his next local comic-con. Or maybe he can do what? Wear all his amassed fortune and do what solo seiges?? Maybe he is just really trying to steal all the resources in the game in attempt to fail the local alfar community!! I'm not a known player or some elitest pvp'er but I want to enjoy the game and he provided an excellent window to catch a glimpse.

These fellas heckling him for being extremely welcoming regardless of your skill or experience are right. In the l33t world of kings in darkfall that just shit stomp nubs at troll spawns god fucking forbid we've got decent people like trying to expand the community.

At least you faggots aren't humping the RoA dev's and trying to knuckle fuck your way through the forums to convince everyone who thinks local banking and no bind stones/recall is bad like seronys or what ever the fuck his name is in every other thread on this whole fucking forum.
