  • Removing the NF population bonus was a bad idea. I didn't think much of it until I played EU prime a few times post patch. Definitely easier to swap to Hero zerg than defend against him with PUGs. At least with NF bonusess, some of the 8mans may def…
  • Hero has historically logged early when there's no one to fight. This isn't a new scenario.
  • Don't forget the snare proc that comes with it.
  • Right, but they didn't REMOVE any dyes. They only restricted EC players from using them. Hence, the omni dye system.
  • DAoC is not Counter Strike, League of Legends, or PUBG. This is an MMOROG that relies on progression over time, not instant gratification. This game is clearly not for you and that's ok. Games do not need to cater to a large population unless the go…
  • Half the keep capture / defense bonuses and bring back the underpopulation bonus to provide some incentive. The former may not do much but the latter should never have been removed in the first place. BS seems to be slowing down at making hot fixes …
  • @Fateboi Fair point. However, which dyes do you think they removed? All the dyes are still there from before the patch and the unique dyes are still craftable. They added new dyes to the Mithril merchant but I don't see anything suggesting they remo…
  • Hence my suggestion to increase RPs per kill and add a 5K base RP reward for completing Roaming with Friends daily. BS could even curb back the defense / capture bonuses by 50%. They should bring back the population bonuses too.
  • Dyes are still super cheap in Alchemy and they know about it too. No one is buying them off my merchant so I can only conclude the NPC price hike isn't an issue.
  • Dyes are cosmetics and a common MTX item in other MMOs. Not a big deal, imo.
  • You're correct that RR is not linear. RR progression is exponential up to RR11 and then becomes logarithmic which adds a pseudo barrier for higher RR. This is why the difference between RR11 and RR12 is huge in comparison to lower RRs. I was advocat…
  • The daily quests didn't help close RR gaps. Only the Buggane buff does.
  • My suggestion is to keep pestering Broadsword about the outdated information so maybe they can expedite the release of the new website we were suppose to have years ago. In the mean time, www.excidio.net is the best we have for spell lists outside o…
  • Mids have the population during EU time. They just need to learn to work together and use the classes they have. No single person is going to turn the tide but it only takes one to get the groove going. Start groups. Build them for a particular purp…
  • You need 4+ tanks endo tapping together to prevent other tanks from power tapping. Myrhirian End Regen destroyed endurance management so one tank spamming Sappling Strike does nothing.
  • I think we've arrived, again, to the problem with having multiple conflicting play styles existing in a single space. DAoC is an open world sandbox game. Each realm is effectively a team, regardless if you treat it that way or not. The only way to a…

  • Regarding changes to Endless Conquest (EC), I recommend the following: 1.) Remove the 180 days restriction to convert from a Veteran account to an EC account. If Veteran players cannot afford or not willing to pay for the sub, then they will quit…
  • At level 35+, you can either XP in the Battlegrounds or dungeons appropriate for your level. Both have quests that merit XP but only the BGs are repeatable and are generally faster. You can also run rubble quests in the BGs that reward RPs to gain s…
  • I don't think we need to go back to the old RP earning system. Subbed players can still catch up with the Buggane potion at low RR. All RP earnings are affected by bonuses for subbed accounts so I don't feel that the current RP progression is terrib…
  • Live does have its own Discord. Look on the right side of these forums underneath New Discussion and join it. Definitely a good place to go for real time help / questions.
  • The time to template a new character does NOT take multiple weeks. Recipes are extremely cheap now and you can make 400K BPs in less than two hours doing turkey runs on a low RR character. Don't forget the Weekly ToA quests and DF. The real barrier …
  • Probably because most of the defenders were from NA time. He eventually took Bled after people logged for dinner and such.

  • SMs have the 425 delve PBAOE and it works great when bombing with several. Saying that you can't defend because of a nerf to the Warlock PB when Mids have access to the same PB as the other realms doesn't make any sense to me. This is definitely a …
  • I don't think the /uses are a problem honestly. The heal procs are a different story. They should just make it so heal procs are fixed values and unaffected by Heal bonuses from stats or buffs. I never dreamed I'd see 300+ heals from an armor proc.
  • Your account probably is not flagged properly. Make sure you have an EA account associated with your old Mythic account. Send either @CarolBroadsword or @JohnBroadsword a DM via Discord or here or contact Broadsword directly at support@darkageofcame…
  • Considering the merit point system was added on top of Guild RPs and BPs leads me to believe it was easier to add another point system than using an existing point system for a new feature. It used to be that Guild BPs were required for upgrading an…
  • Send in feedback to have it removed. I made a similar point not too long ago.
  • I'm pretty sure Brittle Guard pathing is no different. They just move at speed 10 so they catch up to you nearly instantaneously.
  • Pathing has been fixed in other places so it's definitely possible. I suspect the code being built around is just different enough that it would cause more problems than fix without rewriting core components of the game. So either DAoC 2.0 or CU.
  • For clarity in this discussion, assisting is not a form of "high level" play @Lff. It is a fundamental mechanic. You need only to navigate through the New User Journey system currently in place to realize that. I'll grant you that coordinating a deb…
  • The issues are clearly not the same during US prime as the Mid BG usually wipes both Alb and Hib BGs consistently. Taking a defended keep against greater numbers or organized defenders is difficult but still results in good action despite who wipes.…
  • This, again, appears to be a EU only problem for Mid. We do not suffer these issues during US prime. Mid has the ability to burst DPS like the other two realms, but it requires coordination as it should. The new debuff train meta on Mid is Spirit du…
  • They probably did it because they were anticipating a huge boost in population which didn't happen. Numbers doubled though which is nice.
  • I don't think you guys want BS to redesign BDs like they did Necromancers. However, pet pathing could use some love in general.
  • Realm points are skewed to zerging because defense / capture RPs are still high. RPs per kill may need to be adjusted to compensate but there needs to be an incentive for keep fights. Otherwise, the zergs will just roam and kill all the action.
  • The Buggane buff still allows for low RR characters to catch up (so long as you're subbed). Maybe they should add 5K RPs to the Roaming with Friends daily but no higher. The 20K RPs before for each quest was ridiculous and I'm glad they toned it dow…
  • Bugs should take priority over trying to update the engine. If you play a game for the graphics, then you won't be staying anyways. Updating the UI would be a better use of their time. I'd be colored impressed if they could fix pet pathing which has…
  • That's not actually true @Keltorius. Nearly every expansion that came out was focused on PvE and the game started its long decline between ToA and Catacombs which is also the time WoW was released. The long grind of ToA waned on players and WoW pull…
  • Renvik's Crafting hats are also useful and was made in a similar light (see link below). The NPC can be found in Cotswold, Mularn, and Mag Mell running around chasing a puppy. http://www.postcount.net/forum/showthread.php?155025-Help-Please
  • The only thing I like about your proposal is adding a timed buff for defending keeps when outnumbered. Everything else I disagree with. There is no need to add NPC controlled siege equipment. We have players for that. There is no need to change the …
  • There are versions of DAoC available elsewhere that have shown players do NOT want classic DAoC as it once was. This argument comes up frequently but there are examples of failed servers using that model. DAoC isn't alive because of its PvE, but …
  • @Dale_Perf my response was intended for @ReviveDaoc4Lifex and the imminent Hero argument. @Mctana I think you're aware that Hib NA prime was a deserted wasteland a bit over a year ago apart from defending relics that Hero captured. It became th…
  • Mirhril merchant in the capital cities. They sell patterns which allows you to skin one item to look like another. The link below describes how it works under Patterning System. https://darkageofcamelot.com/content/1123-live-patch-notes
  • Good fixes and changes. Definitely moving in the right direction in regard to EC. Since you are able to distinguish characters created before the EC launch date, why keep the 180 days inactive rule to down grade from a subscribed account to EC? I…
  • I still think they ought to increase the class selection to all classic classes (except for stealthers) and races. I won't let up on it =P
  • I cannot speak to the Warlock PB change nor can I provide anything useful in that regard. However, stating that the change was bad because you struggle to defend against the Hero Hib BG during EU prime is not a sound argument. Lack of leadership and…
  • https://darkageofcamelot.com/article/guild-autopromote-update1 The policy you're referring to clearly hasn't been updated. Guild autopromote was changed about 4 years ago and functions as Lea described.
  • Cave Shaman is fun to level.
