Well thank you for your advice, I took the game and i'm currently downloading the game.  Like you, other MMO's just aren't cutting it, hopefully this game satisfies my cravings, lol. I'm pretty pumped, the game sounds awesome.

Hehe, well good luck then. And may the ping spikes and crashes have mercy on your avatar. ;) Do join a clan ASAP.

You seem like you're talking from experience here. So you're saying ignore the cons, and get a good head-start on everyone else? The game has me very interested, so should I just go ahead and jump into it?

Well, there is a learning curve- especially if you want to become competitive in PvP.  It's not as easy as those pvp videos make it out to be when you have friendlies to avoid hitting and heart is jumping out of your chest.

I started 2 weeks after launch and I'm up to 62k prowess.  Just joined a clan yesterday and it's like I'm playing a whole new game now.  Whole sections of the map I considered off limits are now surrounded by allied player cities and hamlets.  There's always groups looking for someone to help kill mobs, or getting raided needing back-up.

The cons are not to be ignored.  Game is missing tons of content and dev's do not have a good record of keeping on schedule.  But there is plenty of adventure to be had with what is currently implemented.  No other game comes close to DFUW on the current market if the feature list grabs your attention.  The themepark tab-target consensual pvp crowd might tell you otherwise, however.

Hey everyone.

So I've been watching some first look vids and gameplay vids of DFUW and it looks pretty good. I never played the first DarkFall  but from what I can tell it, and it's successor DFUW seem to get ALOT of mixed criticism. I'm very interested in playing but before I drop $40 just to try it I want to know what I'm getting into, if it's worth it or not. I'm a huge fan of the MMORPG genre but have been disappointed the last couple years. Basically I'm looking for a game like RuneScape, but not RuneScape. I can run around and do what I want, when I want, and don't have any set tasks to do. This game seems like it offers that, and much more. But IS IT WORTH IT?

DF is what it says it is.  Lot of pvp, large scale and small scale.  Is a pure sandbox, so don't look for npc's to guide you.  Very clan driven.  Full owpvp, little safety.  If you like all of these things, its a great game.  If you don't, you wont like it.  It really is what it advertises.

Darkfall UW is a vast improvement over the original in most areas. Specifically, the skill system. In the old game, to compete you had to master every single spell school and use an array of like 30 different spells, as well as weapon masteries, just to have a chance to fight in PvP.

In UW, you can still master everything, but you can only play one role (class) at a time. So, if you're a casual player, you can focus on just mastering one role and it won't take forever, and you'll get into PvP much faster. The PvP itself is a lot more tactical and team oriented than the original.

 

The areas where UW is lacking is in lore and quests. Quests have been replaced with a feat/achievement system. But the game is VERY open ended and you can choose however way you want to level up, whether its crafting, exploring, or PvE. (no PvP feats yet).

 

PvP is really the heart of the game, so if you have no intention of doing it, then this may not be the game for you. But anything from solo hunting, small group skirmishes, raids on villages, massive sieges, naval battles, mounted combat, no game really does it better.

 

It is the only MMORPG in the last 7 years that has kept me playing for a long time, because it is so unique, and doesn't try to hold your hand.

Hell No We Wont Go!

I played a couple weeks after it came out. You are required to craft to succeed. If you don't craft, you grind (and then end up crafting anyway). Everyone crafts. no need to trade items. gold is used solely for crafting. Then when you finally crafted the armor and weapons you want for pvp, your clan whines at you saying you aren't crafting what they need.. so you go back to chopping trees and picking berries again. then a month passes and you realized you played a game to gather twigs and berries all day and accomplished nothing, so you say "f it, im gonna go PvP." then you run out of the safe zone and get killed and lose everything. then you go back to picking berries. the end.

The game is one of the few games offering what it does.

It is easier to play in a group, though a very persistent and dedicated person could be solo all the time. You wouldn't experience as much of the game, because you wouldn't be able to get involved with politics and sieging.

The first hurdle you will have to overcome is the UI. This is the first hurdle which trips up people. They don't take the time to rebind their keys. Trying to play the game without rebinding your keys is like trying to ride a bicycle while pedaling with your hands.

The second hurdle is getting ganked. Many people can not handle getting ganked. If this is you, don't buy this game. You need thick skin to play this game and succeed.

If you can get pass the first two hurdles you will probably enjoy the game.

Darkfall has been the only game to keep me coming back over the years. I have trouble playing any quest grinders at this point. My last attempt at Dragons Prophet only lasted a few hours, to level 17. The game had lots of interesting systems but at the end of the day, the quest grind caught me.

As it is now, and have been for over a month now, people get ping spikes and crashes like theres no tomorrow in sieges. Small scale PVP seems to work better though. And there ain't that much more to do in DFUW then PVP, and if that isn't working good, your left with pretty much nothing atm. 

Well thank you, and everyone else, for their replies and helpful comments. Based off of what i've learned i'm going to have to hold off on DFUW for now and give Eve and possible Vanguard a try.

 

Good decision. I think Eve is still the best game after many years.

DF is like... Imagine you've come to a new place to live, and there is no roads there only directions. And you gonna buy a car. You have to chose from a whole lot of roadsters and other sportcars of the best world's brends or the only ugly "Niva" (Russian 4x4). What will you buy?

My experience is like his, but I play on the EU server.

 

The game is a big grind, and all I do is harvesting and killing boring NPCs. The pvp I get is usually against naked players with blessed newbie weapons. I`m part of a big clan, but the server feels empty. There is no politics, sieging or large battles on a regular basis.

I closed my two alt account yesterday, but I have a house, so I`m holding on to my main a bit longer. I wont grind anymore, and will probably close my account if AV doesn`t focus on the pvp part and the grind. Right now there is no reason to pvp at all. The players do high damage naked, there is no need to siege anyone, no reason to fight over villages and the grind is long and boring.

 

If AV doesn`t make a few moves soon, I fear the game will fade away like DF1 did.

Looks like I was pretty much spot on with a lot of what I saw coming based on my experience with this company the first go round...

Yesterday I was fighting vs warrior. I hit him for 24 and he hit me for 40. I wasn't naked - had banded and r30 GS. And I got 140 str and GS and mastery 100. He just had that much better gear. I can't understand all that naked thing. I remember Ginger used to whine in DF1 about naked killing him in full infernal with r60 sword

I dont think youll regret it if current day MMOs arnt cutting it for you. I find DF somewhat closly resembals the older games WoW vanilla and before, It is quite immersive compared to new games and very social based, imo you should join a clan somewhat after joining the game it will go along way to have comrades you can depend on when a fight goes down not to mention if your not in a clan your missing out on the majority of what the game has/going to offer. One thing i will say about AV (the developers) they are an indy company and rather small so patches and content can be a little slow from what u may be use to.

Ill probaly will still be playing this game until EQNext comes out (assuming SOE delivers on what there saying there doing)

Well thank you for your advice, I took the game and i'm currently downloading the game.  Like you, other MMO's just aren't cutting it, hopefully this game satisfies my cravings, lol. I'm pretty pumped, the game sounds awesome.

I dont think youll regret it if current day MMOs arnt cutting it for you. I find DF somewhat closly resembals the older games WoW vanilla and before, It is quite immersive compared to new games and very social based, imo you should join a clan somewhat after joining the game it will go along way to have comrades you can depend on when a fight goes down not to mention if your not in a clan your missing out on the majority of what the game has/going to offer. One thing i will say about AV (the developers) they are an indy company and rather small so patches and content can be a little slow from what u may be use to.

Ill probaly will still be playing this game until EQNext comes out (assuming SOE delivers on what there saying there doing)

No! DFUW does not resemble vanilla WoW or UO in any way!

 

95% of WoW's enjoyment comes from PvE activities (solo or grouped). 100% of DFUW enjoyment (if you like ganking) comes from group PvP.

 

Therefore, you can enjoy playing 10 minutes WoW. But to enjoy DFUW requires over 1 hour of planned play.

Very few mentioning the grind.

 

It completely turns you off when a basic set of R20 armor takes 1.5-2 hours to craft. When they lower the time it takes to get lower level gear, I will come back. And yes it does take that long from 0 materials to make 1 set of r20 banded armor. Not to mention adding in the time it takes to make a weapon to go with that.

 

The pve grind is a little better now from what I hear with Round robin but it still can take you 4-5 hours to complete one feat. A lot of monster spawns in the game are 2-3 monsters on a 5-10 minute timer and increase slightly when you get a 3rd, and you need 185 to complete the feats. Most people park alts near spawns to increase the rate...

 

Just read the game forums, or ask actual players if you're on the fence

I've noticed that A LOT of games give the player the best experience they can in the first few days, and then the experience deteriorates.

With the best games (WoW, Eve Online etc.) it takes a long time before you reach this point, if you ever do.

 

I think reviewers of games should include a graph of enjoyment over time. This should be over a period of at least a few weeks.

To me its so hard to recommend or not-recommend DFUW because its hard to equate it to another game.

With rift I can say "if you like wow, well rift is like wow with more customization and impromptu raids and groups" for example. Will you like dragon's prophet? Well did you like tera? They're very similar.

You can't do this so easily with DFUW. If you wanna compare it to another game you have to kind of smoosh together 5 other games.

So I can honestly say if you would enjoy tera-like controls, eve's crafted gear and meaningful pvp, UO's skill based progress, and the low fantasy of dragon age, and do not mind a bit of lowbudget (this will hopefully change) then give it. A shot

RIP Ribbitribbitt you are missed, kid.

Currently Playing EVE, DFUW

I played a couple weeks after it came out. You are required to craft to succeed. If you don't craft, you grind (and then end up crafting anyway). Everyone crafts. no need to trade items. gold is used solely for crafting. Then when you finally crafted the armor and weapons you want for pvp, your clan whines at you saying you aren't crafting what they need.. so you go back to chopping trees and picking berries again. then a month passes and you realized you played a game to gather twigs and berries all day and accomplished nothing, so you say "f it, im gonna go PvP." then you run out of the safe zone and get killed and lose everything. then you go back to picking berries. the end.

That means you were in an abusive clan. Sucks for you.

 

DF is not like that at all. In my clan we are sub-divded into small militias, every militia has access to the armory where basic gear is provided for everyone from the clan crafters. No one barks at you for not donating,  there is no resource tax, and yet our clan city is built up very nicely.

I'd like to add:

if you like a huge open seamless beautiful world

exciting group pvp anywhere at anytime

risk vs reward

the classic MMO feel where its everyone in one world

the classic MMO mob grind where you kick back with a few friends crack some jokes and kill some mobs

Crafting that is meaningful

Don't mind there will be bugs and it is developed by a dedicated small company

 

Then yes, try out Darkfall UW. As a hater of DF1 due to the horrid community, and a VERY displeased beta player of DFUW I can finally say I am enjoying DFUW quite a lot. Sure it has its problems like all new mmos, and I will agree it is fun for now, not sure how it will play out in the long run or if it will hold my interest, but for NOW I am having a blast. Fun enough to justify the cost. and the sub keeps the f2p trolls away.

I don't find this to be true personally.  I've been playing casually for a couple weeks.  I gather semi afk, I craft, I hit the newbie dungeon, I run to a nearby spawn and work on kill feats.  All of these things can take less than an hour.  You can't do much in WoW or any mmo in 10 min though.  

Personally, I found eve combat to be beyond boring and also the best way to make money through missions.  There was absolutely ZERO incentive to pvp because you would almost sure lose more than you gained.  Overly complicated systems (like scanning) just added to the misery.  On top of that it was just a bunch of boxes linked by "star gates" otherwise known as zoning.  DF is a wide open world where I can use guile to get by as a newbie.
