Questions about Trove...

cesmode8cesmode8 Member UncommonPosts: 431
Hi,
Im thinking of playing Trove, but had a few questions:

  1. Is the game more builder like Minecraft or more MMO?
  2. Are you able to expand the size of your cornerstone?  That 16x16 square seems to be quite limiting given the freedom you have in a game like mincraft to build as big as you want.
  3. If I choose not to build on my cornerstone and choose to build, say on a mountain somewhere, or within a mountain, any random player can come by and trash it, correct?  So basically, there is no creativity in the sense of building (safely) a home into a mountain, under ground, etc...you are limited to building safely on your corner stone?
  4. How solo-friendly is the game?
  5. If I build on my cornerstone today, will it be there tomorrow when I log in?  Will I be on the same 'channel' or server as I was yesterday?
  6. Is there an 'endgame'?
Thanks!

    I havent played in quite some time but ill try to answer best i can

    *Is the game more builder like Minecraft or more MMO?
    *Its both, though separated, troves primary gameplay is running from dungeon to dungeon, killing a miniboss and then running to the next dungeon, repeat and thats what you'll be doing until end game

    *Are you able to expand the size of your cornerstone?  That 16x16 square seems to be quite limiting given the freedom you have in a game like mincraft to build as big as you want.
    *No, but you can very cheaply create a club (Guild) for yourself, you can be in multiple at once, so most people have one of their own which gives you a great amount of space to build on, its a personal world when you dont invite anyone to the club.

    *If I choose not to build on my cornerstone and choose to build, say on a mountain somewhere, or within a mountain, any random player can come by and trash it, correct?  So basically, there is no creativity in the sense of building (safely) a home into a mountain, under ground, etc...you are limited to building safely on your corner stone?
    *Worlds pretty much reset every so often to refresh the cleared dungeons, the worlds in which you do dungeons are not permanent, only club worlds are, and only people with permission can destroy your things there

    *How solo-friendly is the game?
    *It's normal content can all be solo'd but the end game is too difficult, its not all that hard finding groups though.

    *If I build on my cornerstone today, will it be there tomorrow when I log in?  Will I be on the same 'channel' or server as I was yesterday?
    *Yes, your cornerstone is permanent, you can swap worlds at will, theres no separated servers
    ( Just to clarify, your cornerstone is something you summon at a cornerstone plot, these plots are all over the map, it will disappear when you summon it at a new plot but what you've build in it always gets transferred to that new plot, nothing is lost.)

    *Is there an 'endgame'?
    *Trove is mostly repeating near identical content and hoarding all the collectables ( weapon skins, mounts, wing skins etc ) there is an end game but it is pretty much the same thing as dungeons, just harder to do alone and bigger.

    So...seems more like an MMO than an actual builder?  Pity.  I mean, maybe Ill try it.  But I was kind of hoping for Minecraft in an open world setting.  I liked going off adventuring into deep caverns full of resources in Minecraft so that I can build cool and unique stuff anywhere in the world.  But if Trove is "dungeon to dungeon, and you can build creatively on your cornerstone"...eh.

    We'll see

    check out Creativerse for a closer Minecraft experience , if thats what you are looking for..

      copied from another thread ... great builders to check out ..

    Creativerse, 7 Days to Die ,Medeviel Engineers....Rising World,Planet Explorers ,Tug,  Life is Feudal are some of the best offered, just remebered Wurm Unlimited now availble on Steam also ...

     Novus Inceptio is another that just hit Steam EA and looks great , is getting alot of positive feedback , but i have enough on my plate that i will wait  a bit longer  before purchase on this one
      also The Forest ....
