The crafting fragment system was not exactly ideal, no, but look at New Dawn right now, it is the opposite extreme; literally no mob will be worth farming if all they do is remove things from the loot tables without adding anything back.

The lack of acknowledgement regarding the poor state of the economy - and the lack of a solid path going forward with it - alongside their stance on villages and upkeep maintenance distribution, are probably my two main concerns about this game for launch. Two concerns that are not being eased, for with each time they speak of them, my head hurts from face-palming. In fact, I'm starting to believe that is their intention, to cause me much physical harm in real life.

I should be reporting them to their authorities for this.

That being said it is easy for us to knee jerk about Eco having gone through problems with previous iterations of the game. I personally have faith in @Ub3rgames to deliver a solid eco patch with thought (I.e giving every mob a niche as far as loot tables go and not taking away from the player) my understanding is, as they've stated about loot tables, give plenty for the player and then some more to push into the eco via markets/trade. regardless of local banking/no port PVE needs to be profitable for everyone everywhere, not just those who find themselves next to a good spawn (To an extent, else whats the point in territory)

I'm fairly sure it's not an easy thing to plan, it's easy to be a critic.
"Fixing the economy" isn't a one-workday-job. It's not as simple as "adding shit to the tables" unlike some people may believe. Such a view is what caused the problems in the first place. The fact that it isn't so simple, is exactly why I remain concerned that they will get it wrong, especially given their lack of firsthand experiences.

I'd like to be surprised, but I've learned to expect the worst.

Will we ever seem Mahirim 4 legged running as promises 10 years ago? :D

I dont hitnk thats a good idea. You just want to highlight what darkfall was.
If ub3rgames delivers what they promised this is what I would want to see in a trailer:
- few main characters - ok. But I want one of them to become gatherer, one of them crafter, one of them trader, one of them a racial traitor attacking caravans (red), one of them pirat. Definitely don't want to see another "from zero to hero" pvp highlighting darkfall trailer. Fuck this shit. Show them slowly building their way in their respective craft just to make all their stories meet at the end somehow. No big battle is necessary.

Long time coming, but now they're old and lived their lives all they have to lose is reputation. I think it's tragic how many people were killed or ruined since the 80s they don't get to see this day.

Don't worry Celiah, you got bad information, you ran with it, you failed. Now you know that stoneskin is equal to three buffs in terms of mana usage. No biggie, Shit happens.

It does not mean that there is no problem with heavy armor, as there clearly is. Less and less people play in full metal.
But again, I think it's not that bad what we have now:
melee/archery - leather
melee/magic - bone
pure magic - robe

And metal for large scale pvp fights or fillers that allow you to boost your protections.

Of course it would be better if there were no armor traits but well, don't think they will remove them.
