    Ugh no, if they take this route of gating content behind large timesinks such as gear, faction or material grinding I won't be playing.

    While obtaining access to a dungeon the first time might be fun,  doing it again and again on alts, not so much.

    The worst is grinding mats for consumables  over and over to enter the dungeon again.
    I know some people hate this stuff, but then again Pantheon has to make a choice.
    We already decided that this game is not going to cater for everyone.

    As someone said already, what for you is a Timesink, for me is Content.
    We have different ways to see things.

    Also, you should be aware that Pantheon is not going to be Alt friendly, as it takes ages to level one character, so you shouldn't worry too much about having to do the same content too often.

    Having to acquire Situational Gear keeps you busy while leveling.

    Given that it is not alt friendly, do you think that people will be "boxing" instead? 

    I come from early L2 where boxing was quite popular.

    @Kilsin will boxing be allowed / feasible in Pantheon?
    Pantheon will definitely be Alt friendly, you won;t be able to do it all on your first characters playthrough, plus there will be many KoS racial starting zones that you will want to visit on an alt and yes, boxing is also allowed but will be difficult to do efficiently, so any signs of automated boxing software/botting will stand out quite obviously and easily allow us to identify it ;)
    You ever notice that Kilsin often refutes the "beliefs" many posters have regarding this game?

    Here he dispels the myth it won't be alt friendly, and perhaps even the belief it will be an extremely long and difficult process to max level a character.

    I suspect Pantheon will have more convenience features and fewer repetitious time sinks than some of the faithful might care for.


    I just try to get the most accurate and up to date information out there so people can make the best decisions and discuss the latest most accurate topics.

    When someone puts an opinion forward and states it as fact or works hard to argue in favour of their "idea", it can be the cause of many arguments and negativity, I just try to make sure you all have the most accurate information possible to try and minimise that, what you do with that information is your prerogative, my friend.

    We have stated a few times that Pantheon will be Alt friendly and that one character will struggle to do it all, so I am just essentially repeating information for those who may not have heard it. Levelling from 1-50 will be long and tough ;)

    Pantheon will not be some easy-mode, convenience friendly game, there will be a lot of challenge, skill and team work needed but we realise that some small things needed looking more closely at from previous games to bring them up to modern social standards, even for our community, and that doesn't mean we will teleport you to dungeons or give you spells/abilities to solo 1-50 easily but just give you enough to help you on your way to finding adventure, making friends and getting the job done without pulling your hair out and headbutting your monitor in the process.

  • Please have a good percentage of solo content.



    I did solo content in Asheron's Call all the time even thought the content I was doing was not meant for it. I liked the challenge. I was always tweaking my Survivability =)

    That is what I did in EQ and VG as well and that is how we will handle it in Pantheon, we are not creating solo content for anyone as it is a group game but we look forward to seeing how our community tests their skills and solo's some of the more friendly content, you won't, however, see anyone soloing dungeons or group content, at some point people will need to make friends, join a guild etc.
