    Looking pretty good. I still wish I knew more about the game... they always show 5 skills, but dear lord there must be more than that for each character right??  These are just the main skills I hope!

    There are five spells per class, but there is much than that to building a character

    Yeah there's going to be loads of "schools" (example, Mage has 4 schools, Water, Fire, Earth and Air I believe), each school contains 5 skills (4 regulars and one Ultimate).

    Everyone will have a set of basic skills too (I'd imagine these would be the simple transfer skills if you played DF1), and you will select a Primary and a secondary school for whatever class you play. However, you cannot use the 'Ultimate' skill in your secondary school, and I believe also the skills in your secondary will have certain drawbacks to using them (ie, cost more mana, not as effective as if it was primary, etc).

    Hope this helped!

    Watching: Albion Online: Summer alpha was great, but the game seems to be progressing towards heavy instancing.

    Wrong.

    Everyone will have a set of basic skills, probably consisting of the 3 transfers, a crappy long-cast heal-self, and a crappy basic mage attack spell (for when you pull out your staff, remember all classes can use all weapon types) - Think along the lines of DF1's lesser magic.

    Also you cannot use the Ultimate skill of your second school. That makes 9 skills between your primary and secondary roles.

    Whenever I see people circle-straffing in 3rd person perspective over-the-shoulder view - I want to vomit.

    Awww, here's a bucket, sunshine. You go get it all out now, ok? image

    Anyfrackinwho, thanks for sharing PsyMike. Game's looking better than I had hoped, and these are just youtube videos. Can't stand the wait for this one.

    All characters have access to 2 roles (9 skills) then also access to ALL Lesser magic and greater magic.

    Then there are probably alot of passive/neutral skills just like in DF1.

    All classes also have access to melee, archery etc.

    Then you have all the gathering/crafting skills etc.

    I'm intrigued, yet wary due to it's predecessor and the trickling of information. I'll most likely be waiting a bit after release before I even consider picking this game up.

    9 skills only? Bleh.... too familiar to GW2... I miss the days of EQ (blah blah yes I know I am jaded and nastalgic) where you would have like 20+ spells, even if a few of them were rarely used.

     

    I still am interested as long as their is a sense of purpose and stuff (I know I don't need to say it but I will, there is no purpose or drive in GW2 and it killed it for me and my friends).

     

    Dec 12 can't come soon enough!

    I am pretty sure there are multiple threads/posts explaining that you get 5 main spells from a role + 4 roles from a secondary role + all of the spells and abilities open to everyone regardless of roles. Just saying.

    thats ok, you can be one of those people who sits still trying to aim in combat, and then Q.Q when you lose hours worth of gear cause the game has bad mechanics.

    You have to stand still to aim, or am I reading that wrong?

    For now this certain school seems a bit op, but we'll see; nothing that can't be fixed.

    lol... He's saying if you have to stand still to aim you are bad, and you should feel bad.  He is also saying that those who are bad will blame the game and state that it has broken mechanics because they failed while standing still.

     

    EDIT: We're onto something here folks,  New Magic class: Glass fortress, has to stand still to cast, high damage,movement interrupts...

    I dont know what it is but i have no desire to play this game. Looks un polished and unfinished. Almost like its still in alpha.

    I don't play Darkfall for the graphics...

    I play it for the gameplay, the seamless open world,the PVP/PK system, the sieges, the real clans/guilds not just mindless chatboxes..... and the most important the feeling of fear, that i dont find it in any other games... hmm maybe in WarZ for a while...

    It's because they are not placing many resources into presenting the game. I have a feeling it will be more polished than the videos have made the game appear.

    Just be glad that you won't have to be prepared to use 40 different skills on 5 different hotbars like in DF1. That many skills just don't work in an action oriented game. But yeah, 9 main + some extras it seems.
