Not for you it won't be.

Yeah...I have the feeling that any one who "liked WoW" will have a very tough time with Darkfall.

I certainly mean no offense...just hoping to save some time and money on your part.

I can't wait to see how they managed to make Darkfall a non-item based game and have skill mean every thing...I just find it hard to believe. UO used to be like that...many, many years ago. Every one ran around in GM crafted armor and then it was upto skills of the player and the character.

So maybe you should go buy this game...help support it. This game has been in development for over eight years. If it flops...the devs will probably quit game development all together.

Yup! It's glorious! Spend tons of time only to screw up once and have to work from the ground up again.

Darkfall fans would call me a carebear, but I have better things to do than play a game for a very long time only to lose everything and have to start over. I would be fine with some penalty, like losing a single item, but how do you even start over without anything left?

It's a different story if itemization doesn't mean much and it's relatively easy to get equivalent items, but I wouldn't know because the devs failed miserably at spreading information about this game.

bank items, set up revenge runs, make deals for people to find the player ambush them in their gear. the point i get from the game is it is supposed to feel a little like elder scrolls sept with real players instead npcs.

also gear isn't that big of deal

I know from my days of "Forum Fall" that supposedly this game will not be very item based. I am thinking some thing along the lines of Eve Online type item based...You get a better than average sword, but it will only give you 5% more damage. In a one on one, that 5% might help. If you didn't have it you wouldn't notice all that much though. However, once you where in a real battle it wouldn't make any difference what so ever since you'd be relying on teamwork.

So big deal if you loose your stuff...litterally 10 minutes and you'll probally be just as well off again prviding you had some pocket change. If you were flat broke than maybe 20 minutes.

I can tell you that if you like WoW you can STILL like this game.

**** I have been PKing since like BatMUD in the 90's. I enjoyed WoW for about four months or so. I really want another Shadowbane with a good release this time! Which Darkfall very well could be!

And that is what worries me. Nothing really seems to be defined. I went to their website and I'm still not really getting the details of this game.

Still, I can't wait to see how it fairs after a few months. If it's still going strong come May I might hop on. I was a WoW player but I was far from a carebare which is why I'm no longer find any enjoyment in the game.

It's been in development for 8 years or something. It's an indie outfit that basically designed the game the way they wanted without any interference (or money for that matter). It's basically the complete opposite of an overhyped EA game **WAR cough cough** so I'm putting my money with these guys.
