New Frontiers Review

New Frontiers Review - MMORPG.com

Larry Brown has penned the latest review of a Dark Age of Camelot expansion pack. This time we tackle the free-expansion "New Frontiers".

Dark Age of Camelot is a game that has an interesting mix of pve and pvp. Pve content takes place in your realms lands, be it Hibernia, Albion or Midgard, and pvp takes place in the frontier area, which is accessible by all three realms. In this frontier area the realms fight over control of keeps and relics. Control of the majority of the keeps, other than bragging rights, gives the dominant realm access to the pvp Dungeon Darkness falls, while control of the relics grants the realm holding them various bonuses to melee and magic damage, depending on the number of relics you hold.

The frontier area of old often ended up with a stalemate in a zone called Emain Macha, a zone of Hibernia’s frontier area. The portal keeps of Albion and Midgard would lead to large walls called mile gates. They would have to get through this to gain access to the Hibernian frontier area. Many nights would see an hour’s long stand off at this mile gate, which some people enjoyed, and others hated. It was easy to choke off the enemy before they entered your frontier in the old frontiers set up, and this annoyed many would be conquerors, and even some of the defenders. Many people did not want an hour’s long stand off with hundreds of people involved; they wanted the small group warfare that would ensue if the enemy ever got past the mile gates.
