I want the feeling of pure danger

I want to have that old feeling of danger, possibly worst than ever before.  Not all the time, I hope VR Realms can strike that perfect balance.


By perfect balance, I'm talking about times where you feel safe too, where you can do stuff by yourself (get your shit together), or solo that one level so you can even up with your friends.  But more often times where you have to make a decision to leave that safe haven and do the unthinkable if we as a group decide to venture.


I'm a little unclear how quest work.  Guessing from the Stream footage, they may not be kill 10 pigs in a farmers field.  But more Skyrim like where you have to cross great lands to get to the objective.  It's hard to say, VR Reams may have decided to mess around getting to different points just to display how groups work together in the footage we had......Quest may be robust, or we could still have the 10 pigs too.  I'm hoping for more robust !

What ever they decide, I PRAY THEIR NOT CHAIN QUEST.  Chain quest make it hard to get players together.  Who is on part 4?........Looking for others on part 4, anyone?.....You get the drift !


Like in Skyrim, I want unknown surprises, like that chest behind that tree or a great sward hidden in a craves after falling down a secret hole hidden in the tall grass. 

Like in the footage, I want anomalies to overcome.  Not just an Orc camp, but one guarded by nasty archers, or have a group stumble on a strange object that could weaken an unsuspecting party for an hour, or take a chance and have everyone cross a weaken bridge over looking a deep gorge.  All this with great music.

All this in trying to accomplish a single quest ! 


I day dream a lot, I could make great stories in my head.   I just hope it becomes a reality :)

    They're taking the singularity approach, where as many classes will be useless without a group, just like in EQ 1

    They should add huge death penalties to the game, like losing a day's worth of exp at higher levels as well as needing to go back to your corpse naked in order to get all your gear back!

    The best way to add a feeling of pure danger for most Pantheon fans is:

    Every time any player dies, the game does an RNG roll to add a cash shop to Pantheon.

    I cant think of anything else that would terrify OP more.

    I can confirm that.

    Besides making it solo friendly and adding a dungeon finder? ;)

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    Don't just play games, inhabit virtual worlds™

    Agree with all your post @delete5230  I think we will be pleasantly surprised! :)

    This will be tough no matter how good the game is.  Your first MMO has the allure of the unknown.  Once you have played several you get jaded.  Hopefully I am mistaken, but only my first MMO gave me that feeling of danger.

    The game 'Identity' is the game you are looking for

    That should get you going.

    It's going to be 'yuge AND dangerous!  Deadly even, as in  your actual character may actually die and there will be actual consequences.

    Hey they said it's not for everybody.  Remember that when you lose connection / power / etc on a boatride!
