Guides and Player Help / Re: List of titles
I'm not currently subbed and won't be for a while. I was hoping I could read up on the titles as it's been a while since I played.
If you bought the game then you can play right now.  There is no sub fee yet.

I had to pay a sub fee?!? Oh I didn't have the game tho never mind haha (edit)

General Discussion / Re: We need a full wipe
Solid discussions came and went boys. Once Ub3r over promised and vastly underdelivered their launch, they lost many great people who provided them their feedback during indev. We need like 40 more @Zintair players to come along and continue the feedback train so many others have felt burned or burned out on. Until then, if the forum negativity outweighs the positives, please don't think it's because the game is actually doing great and there are people trying to bring it down. It's merely the realizations of so much shit that needs to be addressed and the indev being cut off too soon. Good luck turning this thing around and get on recruiting your boys Zintair because you're going to want them here to help

I'd dare say you are closer to the truth than I'd like to admit I always found in my humble 20 years of MMOs that it was always the community that kept me going more than the actual MMO itself.  Granted a very small and bleeding community isn't a good sign well shit lol.

I'm enjoying the game and found some people who enjoy it still a ton regardless of condition.  Hopefully some new changes come over the summer and like I said maybe spice things up.

Having shot only 60 arrows in the game since launch (3x starter quests hit golbin 20 times with arrows), I have no first hand experience regarding archery.

But I can confirm Polearm still (rarely) does a stronger attack from time to time.

So quick update, buried in the launch update patch is the single line "-Critical strikes in PvP have been repaired" which I'm guessing is why you get archery crits now along with this part buried in the InDev prior to launch "Overall attack/casting speed formula has been reduced by 10%." Which explains why the swings per minute dont match InDev numbers anymore. Still doesn't explain why quickness doesn't effect melee swing speed currently, but I'm guessing it's an after effect.

When I played this week and had a clan buddy helping me kill stuff he would buff my quickness from 20-27 to 60-67.  While I was swinging my 2h sword the attack speed was 100% faster when I was buffed.  Like I was a hacking machine.

So not sure what you mean about quickness effecting attack speed unless you mean archery which I am unsure about. 

My 80 quick (96% power), maxed GS skills/sub skills, 100% gs title (6%)vs a new character was only a difference of 4 swings in 30 seconds. So something isn't working toward weapon swing speed anymore just not sure what it is Uber games hasn't answered

Not too sure then it felt like it was faster with such a jump from 20-60.  Never counted the actually extra swings I got. 

I know mining skill is a hugeeee gap from low skill to high in terms of speed to clear a node.

General Discussion / Re: We need a full wipe
I'm a brand new player enjoying darkfall.  I did some research and am ok with the low population.  I understand it will never be the glory days experience.  I was playing DAOC so I had that.

If you really have any faith in new people coming the negative crap some post non stop is definitely not helping.  Chill with the saltmine crap.  You guys are all so professional and knowledgeable open your own server and make it better.

Oh you won't?

Now in terms of new shit I don't know shit so I'm down for whatever adds more people or spices it up.


Thats great to hear Zintair.
And you are right about the negativity of these posts. I dont know why any of these 'fans' hang out here spewing all day, but its the darkfall way. kinda a phenomenon of delusion. And this used to be a pretty positive forum (for a darkfall forum) during indev.
You have to realize the majority of these negative people played the game 18 hours a day and they are very hurt because they want to live in Darkfall but cant.
I too am enjoying myself these days.


I definitely see that and I know their frustration I've Seen experienced this in other games.  It's all good though, just when a solid discussion is happening the detail hits hard lol.

More toward the OP to avoid my own derail lol I am not sure how or what a warfront is but it sounds dope.

I am hoping they release something more concrete for the immediate future in more detail then the road map.
