Trading and its consequences.

CyclopsSlayerCyclopsSlayer Minneapolis, MNPosts: 532Member

ArcheAge is not full loot, at least for those things carried in the normal inventory. However, resource bundles used to build houses, land claim tokens for the 3rd continent, trading packages, are all carried in a seperate back slot that CAN be looted from a dead player.

 

Houses, Boats, Castle segments, all require a blueprint to start building. The blueprints all cost special coins available through doing trade runs, craft a trade package, and carry it to a distant island. The trick is that both East and West player factions use the same turn in point.

While a player is carrying an item in their back slot their movement is slowed to walking speeds.

 

So here we see a group camping the turn in point, liberating the trade packages and finishing the turn in themselves. LOL

    The shared turn in points are new to me. Sounds exciting.

    But I hate to see there are "rogue" like specs with invisibility skills again in this game. It makes me fear there is yet again a  class with gamebraking skills like "permanent invisibility". One of the most exploitable, imbalanced and straight out annoying skills in MMORPGs if not well restricted. Staying invisible, prey for targets with no risk unless from others in stealth, moving invisible, attacking from invisibility and then retreating into invisibility if anything goes wrong with usually no means to break it unless the exploiter makes poor decissions himself. There is rarely ever any sort of balancing contra to it. Not just a mere counter, but a polar opposite that can at least invalidate or compensate for this advantage if wisely used.

    The point just went completely over your head.

    I heard the whoosh from over here.

    Stealth;

    It is limited by proximity. You become visible based on being too close to a target. As well there is at least 1 skill that increases that radius by double iirc. So it will let you get set up for an attack, but you'll still have to charge through a visibility range.

    Secondly, the skill has a 40sec Duration, 40sec Cool Down, and reduces movement by 30%.  So the user will likely become visible briefly as they refresh.

    Do some research before starting to talk nonsense, stealth in AA is not overpowered as in most of the other games.

    And this whole goods transporting system i a good way to encourage teamwork (on group of players responsible to carry goods while they teammates responsible to defending them), something to give meaning to teamwork which most of the MMOs are lacking lately, and to punish soloers!

    Funny thing is that you can see me easily busting someone out of stealth at 2:13 in the video.

    Guess people will need to hire scouts and guards.    That is what I would do.   :)

    Clans will have to work together to ensure safe traval and even then you could be out gunned and your resources lost, just another aspect of AA that makes team work worthwhile.

    Looked good except the guy that was invisible, I guess that's their stealth, kinda like rogues in WoW, and stealthers from DAOC. I despise the invisible mechanic in mmorpg's. I have and probably will play one, of course, just because of the advantage. Seriously, wish it were hidden in shadows or a brief stealth though, I hate perma-stealth-invisibility.

    If you watch the video full screen, keep an eye on the chat window. You'll see that the attackers had placed scouts; "Boat to the south, south, landing..." Also, notice that one of them died, and respawned in Jail. LOL

    Ok so it's 45 seconds of invisibility. It's not perma stealth but definately gonna be most useful for pvp. 45 seconds is still a good long time to be invisible. I understand the vocation tree for assassinnis a lesser form of stealth that can be seen through if you're too close to an enemy. Ah well guess I'll have to be a stealther....again.

    He didn't claim it was overpowered like other games.  He said he feared it could be a gamebreaking skill.  He didn't know that it was a short (40 second) duration rather than toggle forever.  He just stated why he didn't like such things in other MMOs.

     

    Also, encouraging teamwork is great, punishing solo players is not. A lone wolf type should have the ability to interact in a very different way with others than a group.  It shouldn't end up being no group = may as well quit forever.

     

    Do some careful reading of his post before starting to talk nonsense.

    See, now this is the kind of stuff that makes MMO's entertaining. As for the guy who went to jail, what exactly did he do to end up in jail?

    Armed robbery, attempted murder, maybe even actual murder?

    On the off chance you didn't know, the game has in-game jail with in-game player courts.

    Yeah, I can see places that will probably be camped all the time with lots of pvp action, which is great. Finding a good guild that isn't full of elitest jerks may be a problem. I'm hoping I can can find a small to medium sized guild that work together, much like the one I was in in Daoc Pre-Toa. The larger guild I was in in Wow were full of elitest jerks and the guild was so big I never got to know everyone in it.

    Yes, I knew there was a jail system, but didn't know the mechanics of it. However, does murder only count against you in certain areas? I mean there is a PvP island, so I'm guessing FFA murder is accepted as common there. Was just wondering if these turn in points are actually in a non PvP area or why he went to jail.

  • CyclopsSlayerCyclopsSlayer Minneapolis, MNPosts: 532Member
    Murder and theft only count if they are against the same faction on the Southern continents. And then only if the "victim" collects and turns in the evidence. On the Northern continent there are no penalties.

    Someone recently had over 100 same faction player kills, the jail sentence was 4800 some minutes. They were rather naughty...

    Afaik the stealth is limited, you can still insta vanish after the timer goes away, being visible only for a fraction of a second..
    As for that island, if its the only tradespot for coins, there's a hail of shitstorm coming!! And the spot will be worse than tarren mill on vanilla glory-days and only the largest zergs will be able to trade for coins

    Not the only turn in point. Just the one that offers the 'best' value for the turn in. The further the package goes the more it is worth in the trade coins.

    According to one report, the blueprint for a small house starts at 16 coins. The larger the item, the larger its footprint, the more coins.

    That's the first thing I said to myself. There is now way of balancing a perma invs class.

     

    edit - I see someone above say that stealth is not perm, it sure looked like it in the vid.
