Returning Player of a 15 year hiatus

Just re-upped my account about a week or so ago after a 15(sh) year hiatus. Transferred my chars to Ywain per the instructions provided. Loaded up thinking that I would just goof off and see what's changed. One thing led to another and I ended up making a couple of new chars.

Leveled to 50 in just a few days(quite different than what I remember of being several weeks).

I started at launch on Pellinor, and played for quite a few years. Had the first rr12 warrior and healer there. So much has changed and I feel a little lost; template-wise, new items, bounty point items, mithril, etc.

Is there any material out there that I can research that anyone can recommend that encompasses the game of current? My main focal point was always RvR, but it looks like, from what I gather, that the options are limitless. Back when I played, we just crafted weapons and armor and fit them into a template, but it appears that there is not much of a need for that anymore. I'm really confused. :smile: There is a ton of data out there, but it's jumbled up with old data and it's easy to go down a rabbit hole only to find out that it is irrelevant now.

Any recommendations or suggestions on some good material to help me get caught back up, is appreciated.

    The best ressource will be the discord channel and asking in Advice. Just ask questions and you'll get answer. Daoc being a pretty old game, most (if not all) of written documentation is wrong.
  • Welcome back.

    Here are two threads where returning players asked questions.

    If you want to get a new template for your characters, I'd suggest visiting https://www.daocutils.com/. It's a great place to get good templates, and you can bounty craft most of what you need. The links above describe bounty crafting in more detail.
  • Thank you for those links and information Notawitch! This helps me as well after being gone for 5 years.
  • templating not needed. levle 50 armor at cl 13 is better than what you can craft.
  • Most of the best templates have at least one crafted piece.
  • Discord. Be there or be square. :D

  • Welcome back old foe, hope you like it.
  • The game is dead at the moment.
    No need to sugarcoat that.
    The few dozen that still try to deny that are the ones that need to attract food for themself.
    These guys know all usable gamebugs, use all available third-party-tools to automate every step.
    Also they are all at about RR12 which makes them unkillable....

    Game-Class-Balance does not exist. Wrong class = Dead.

    But they announced a new Server lately, which sounds good.
    Wait for the new Server, like most of the playerbase, and hope the best. :)
