Darkfall: UW / Post Free Class Patch

Postby dbltnk » 19 Jun 2014, 22:32

So I've been trying out DF:UW in the last couple days. Only got myself to about 10k prowess and had barely no PvP yet but so far it's not that bad. Still grindy, but way way way less than before. The prowess system is great (in fact I've got a very similar system for power gains planned) and the community these days is super noob-friendly.

If anyone wants to say hi: My char is called "Kriegstreibe Core" (stupid typo ...). I'm not on a lot and I'm often AFK trawling but should we overlap then I'm always up for some kind of mischief. =D

Was playing on EU but I'm already out of it again. Got to around 20k prowess or so and then just did not want to grind anymore. Low tolerance for that shit. It is definitely better nowadays than it was a year ago - but still too grindy for me nowadays.

well if you die you start fresh. and you need to grind to get good stuff. you might get killed 100 times before actually getting something. depends on the people you encounter

Being griefed is not the problem. People are awefully nice to noobs. But the fastest way to gain Prowess at the beginning is AFK-fishing (with a trawler) and after that you farm mobs. Yay.

So you lose this "prowess" when you die or you just drop gears?

Nah. Prowess is just another fancy word for "experience" or "skill points".

That's a shame.
The grind really isn't that bad, but it is a long term game, and there's definitely some progression involved.

Screw trawlers, you should have been farming mobs, exploring the world, and having fun.

With a good clan that will farm mobs with you, you can gain prowess really quick because most people have the feats done so they will turn their kill credits off to let you get all the kills.
You only need 50k prowess or so to be pvp rdy.

If you ever play on NA, get ahold of me.

df1 > dfuw

the combat is awful compared to df1 and the siege performance is just bad.
