Awaiting Darkfall Unholy Wars
Originally posted by Burning25 Originally posted by MindTrigger Originally posted by Wolfenpride I know the game is pvp oriented, but how is the PvE/group content? Just curious.
I've asked this question a lot too. From what I gather, PvE is mostly focused on resource gathering, crafting (by anyone), and supporting your group. There aren't really PvE systems other than killing mobs for resources and stuff. I could be wrong, but this is what people have been telling me.
It is not PvE in your traditional go into a dungeon and work together using your unique class aiblities to kill a boss.
It is more like UO and Asheron's Call PvE, you go into dungeons(that anyone can enter, they're not instanced) kill random mobs working in a group or solo, or you're killing monsters out in the world. There are some harder PvE encounters that take more people. The Dragons early on took a lot of people to bring down, but as people gained more experience, it obviously would go down faster and with less people. Good groups of like 7-10 with good gear could get them down fast near the end.
PvE AI is better than most games, the monsters run, dodge, strafe to avoid projectiles.
PVE is important, you need resources to get the best gear and a lot of the PvP and sieges involve around holding good PvE areas.
Thanks both of you, it does sound interesting.
Let me tell you guys a story I experienced in Darkfall 1. I was out farming some mobs on the ice island which the eastern side was mostly controlled by our alliance. There was some troublesome enemies that lived in some of the villages and chaos city nearby and they would occasionally organize and come raid our cities. Anyways, I was farming some dwarves for about an hour and had a decent amount of gold when a rare chest key dropped. I think it was about a 2000 gold value. So I decide to head back and along the way I spot a chaos chest a little ways away. These are random chest around the world which normally contain minimal gold etc, but there is a chance of rare items. I look in my bag and see that I got a large villa deed which is a large house. Now my heart is racing. I've got my head phones on full blast now. I hear hoof beats in the distance and look around and spot two riders. They spot me and turn in my direction. I hop back on my mount and start making for the straightest route to our city with two of them right on my tail. I open the gate of our city and barrel straight toward the bank and deposit my gold, keys and deed in the bank. They did not follow me.
It was moments like this that make darkfall special. I have many more stories of great loss and gains. No other game that I have ever played has given me so many great memories.
In The end it was just the grind that got to me, so if that is fixed we are in for a treat.
Ps: I never did find an available spot for my house deed and when I was ready to leave for good I raided an enemy city with the deed on me. I put up a good fight but was eventually swarmed. I made the day of the person who looted me.

Yep, it's his fault for giving his money to a shady company.
Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

What reason do you have for saying this?

because he just can't read. You have to register a new account and then check an existing customer button and then it lets you enter your old information in, merging the two together.
Played since beta. Can;'t wait. In fact I currently have withdrawls.
I nhave been playing MMOs since AC-DT released.
As for PvE. group PvE was pretty horrendous in DFO1. 1 or two movs require a small group but only the ice dragon was reasonably speical. Everything else could be 2 manned. I nam hoping this changes with DFO2.

I was, guess I still am, but I generally don't play betas, unless I'm sure my progression will be retained (like a lot of F2P open beta's are). Guess I don't like paying people to test their software, used to people paying me to do so.
Won't be joining until the game goes live.
