Combat is not enough after 9 years, sorry.

Since i did not play dfo its only 2 years for me :P
General Discussion / Still best game on the MMO market
Contrary to the constant negativity that this forum represents, DND is still by far the best MMO out there in terms of combat and uniqueness.
Even with the current snail pace of development, its worth playing.

Just a few of the reasons why i am still as active after all this time:
- completly open world (and the world is huuuuge!)
- fast paced fps combat (true aiming, no ridiculous large hitboxes or aiming assistence like your normal ''action combat game'')
- player owned and build hamlets and cities (clan warfare)
- actual player collision (players, mounts, monsters are actual objects in the world!) !!!!!!
- full loot! (makes everything more interesting :P)
- interesting character specialisation and leveling (no braindead exp grinding for levels and hard locked classes, you can decide what you wanna play and how you gonna develop your character)
- better pve than most games (thats just my personal opinion of me playing literally every triple A mmo out there and i gotta say i enjoy dnd pve more than i did normal mmo's endgame dungeon and raid grinding, those things always got boring very fast while i still enjoy dnd pve after more than 2 years of playing indev and the launched game)

Even with the tons of flaws dnd still has and the small and slow dev team, there is just nothing that comes even close to the current version of this game. Either you play and enjoy it or you will have to deal with the mediocrity of all those copy pasted games out there.
General Discussion / Re: SHIELD DISCUSSION
2h is better for pushing mages, better stickyback potential
1h is better for pushing 2h users, tanky as fuck and same dmg as 2h (you can also tank multiple targets if you get their aggro via insults in public or long term forum commitment)

As a 2h user youre better off ignoring 1h users in a fight (if they are not low hp, braindead backpaddling or showing their back for whatever reason). You not gonna be able to kill them in normal circumstances anyway and your strength lies in your stikcy back potential against their squishy targets aka mages.

I think timed blocking makes a good 1h user impossible to kill in melee. Hitting a disable is just lucky at this point and even if you do the duration is like 4s with 10s cd.
And then he (they?) get all offended when you call him (them?) arrogant. Rofl.

Walks like a duck, talks like a duck, must be a duck.

If you are going to be arrogant and unprofessional why get buttsore when someone tells you about yourself?

Timerfall is stupid. Make village stones siegeable with a siege stone with half the health of a small siege stone. 2-4 hour warning before village is cappable. If no one takes it in 24 hours put rewards in a box located next to stone that is destructible w/spikes or hammer. Anyone in owning clan can open box and get a portion of loot/med points. box stays spawned for an hour after the village pays out. If the box is destroyed the person/clan that gets the last hit gets to tap the box for med n loot. Make the village box work like the static treasure chests/weapon  racks where you just interact with it and it puts the shit in yer bag if you are the owning clan or the clan that destoryed the box. Village owner gets to pick when the village pays out as long as its between 24-36 hours after it was capped. Payout timers visable on the map for planned pvp activities.

Gotta the say i prefer the 25h timer over this.

At least theres mostly one or multiple vcps you can go to everyday. The distribution of the timers is a bit meh since there is still a black hole for mid vcps every few weeks but besides that its fine.
The thing that is not fine is the total lack of anything else to do besides vcps. Some kind of territory control, race objectives, daily pvp quests or whatever would be fine. Just anything pls.
All I know is I killed less than 2000 mobs and my top 10 list is missing city wildlife.

Your gaming sessions must be boring as fuck.
So, i checked the ingame statistics a bit and noticed that there are TWO types of chickens. The white and orange ones are actually different species!!

Citizens of AGON!! Tell me, which one is your favorite chicken?
You talking about shit like this?
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

thats not exploiting, is it? I mean there is literally a naked alt at every third vcp trying to hide like that. (prop way more but i only go to primetime vcps so dunno about the rest)
Good vid but at 9min.... why is there no wall for you xD
Bugs & Feedbacks / Re: Champion: book & pots.
You say "As a mage, i'm mostly left in disappointment with the amount of combat book i get."
But combat books means "Non-crafting title books" so it is also a mage book in sort way... they are made for raising combat titles ( also magic schools) to level 50

You are right, but you talking long-term here.

In DnD, i still somewhat need to use all magic school. Fire has haste, earth has iron-skin, air has arrow-ward & tornado, infliction has shrapnel, witch-craft for mana drain and for some reason, you can still cycle lighting-strike+r50 fire nuke +. Right now, i want my magic to be unlocked and good. I'm not thinking about combat. Beside, in dnd, you can win with magic only from what i've seen.

IT's nice that i'm getting combat books, i only wish that the rate of getting combat and magic books was equal.

Shrapnel is raw magic and you dont rly want that since its a r90 now. Mana leech and drain both are arcane magic. Witchcraft has nothing of interest.

Important schools are air(arrow shield, tornado), arcane(mana leech), fire(haste spells), earth(stam leech, iron skin), spellchanting(general other heals).
Max out 1 magic school for dmg (preferably air/fire) and unlock the above spells and youre good to go.
I dont think global markets is a good idea. On the other hand i see no damn reason why there are 8 different markets in every racial area... they should just link them in their respective racial area. Maybe even link hintenfau, ottenhal and espenhal markets into one. They are close enough to each other anyway.
Crafting is not a different playstyle at the moment. Its a browser game like semi-afk activity that can add another goal to your characters progression which mostly isnt worth it hence people use alts. Prozessing wood, iron or leveling a craft with 1000s of trash weapons. Who in their right mind would do that on his main character?

Adding a industry titel slot might help solve crafting alt trend for people only wanting to concentrate on 1 craft as a sidegoal. But crafting in general is such a time consuming activity that you can hardly consider it an actual playstyle.

And who are you?
Noone important I am afraid :( although having at least one person watching/healing the cannoneers back is a good idea at all times, and using a strongbox with a bit of preparation can avoid the naked issues. Take of this what you will, but try to learn from mistakes instead of blaming one roamer.
It's not that simple because if we wiped then the cannons would be left behind, but an alt you choose when to log in. If you carry them on you, then if you die they're gonna be used against you. People shit talk without thinking first...
The point is, if Rats wanna interfere like that, I'm sure they won't like it at all if we do the same. They'll basically never win a siege again...
Yes we dont mind you roaming with 1 or 2 guys and trying to loot. Youre welcome to try. Honestly, come show up with your whole siege force, that would be even more fun for us. We had sieges in indev were the fucking roamers were outnumbering siegeforces or straight up destroyed siege stones. If you think what i did is heavy interference youre being delusional.

The moment you chose to log in your alt you have to babysit him. And whoever has to controll him, cant fight properly. Better go for a hidden strongbox and an alt as an emergency tool. Protecting an alt is waaaay harder than a strongbox. Youre average roamer does not carry 50 b spikes on them and you can just replace it with new ones if it gets low.

my roaming pov

was fun :p
around 12:40. That convo=full on wheelchair retarded.

How is it not interfering with a siege force if you try and fuck with their logistics? I mean it's clear what that naked alt has and still you gleefully try to sabotage?

To be fair i thought it would mostly have the looted gear and maybe some spikes etc and not all siege gear xD I mean come on, thats just being stupid.
