Darkfall: Unholy Wars' Tasos Flambouras has taken to the official forums to lay out some of the details in the forthcoming combat gameplay changes. The team has been hard at work making adjustments to combat to make some classes more sustainable and to improve survival.
Balancing at the high skill tier while addressing Time-To-Kill (TTK).
A couple of glaring issues here, among others to be discussed next week, are the Warrior role while meant to be an “easy” entry-level choice for players has also become the role of choice for a large percentage of DFUW players at high-skill tiers, especially in group situations. Also, Skirmishers and Elementalists taking too much damage from ranged attacks resulting in much shorter TTK compared to Warriors.
