  • EC or subscribed account? EC : - Tanky dps : Light tanks (BM / Merc / zerk) - caster : Mentalist These are simple classes and the Mentalist is a relatively simple but very high utility/dmg caster, multiple facets to the class.

  • You need to consider that it takes into account all of Daoc's variations. Most of the traffic you see or online talk aren't about Ywain. If you look at numbers over time, you clearly see what drives the numbers up, if you do a bit of searching.

  • Ohhh, so what you are saying is that hibs are overpopulated in Euro prime and that makes it very strong to fight hibs in keeps and your conclusion is that hib is overpopulated because of the presence of baseline stun? And stun lock requires 2 abi…
  • But your base argument was that ywain was too grindy, but then say that you have to grind in SI. While in reality, it takes maybe 10 hours max to get 50, ML10, CL15 on ywain
  • The best example of that is that a classic ruleset, while having no or one expansion, is 200x more grindy than Live daoc.
  • God damn really takes an expert on the game to realize that it was hib stun causing all this imbalance for all this time.
  • The thing is that EC wasn't thought out as an alternative revenue stream, it's goal is being an extended trial. They would have had much more success if they treated it as a pay per use kind of thing, but that would have required work from them…
  • You make 15$/3min? Damn you're rich
  • Didn't they implement a stun feedback storm in SL ML? Didn't they give free MoC buff to the obelisk? Don't healers have castable ae amnesia?
  • it's almost as there could be a system in place that shows hammer/tree/cup when a realm is close to a keep, and eventually there could have flames to show that it is under siege. Would be a great system to implement to let some groups know where to …
  • @BackOfRackhams New World looks really bad, i don't see how players liking daoc would enjoy new world, considering we play for pvp/rvr and new world rvr looks just trash. On top that it makes graphic cards explode lol
  • English doesn't seem like it is your first language, your post is a bit confusing. What's your issue? Is it that because of the solo towns solo roaming is dead? Is it that because of solo towns, you can't roll solos with a duo because ppl …
  • @Dreamscape The reason they changed it is that now the solo ports are independent from the state of the frontier. This was done mainly because Herorius used to completely destroy the alb/mid frontiers cutting all ports. So to activate ports, if n…
  • Here are some videos talking about Qbinds and keyboard. The general idea when qbinding stuff to mouse is to 1. first clear your keyboard to make room for qbinds. 2. Then, qbind the abilities you want on the keys you just free'd 3. In y…
  • @DaRedANT it's a bit ridiculous to defend broken pet pathing in daoc. I know you don't like it when ppl say the game's broken and sometimes it's unjustified, but pet pathing and aggro is completely broken, knowing how to adjust and what to do when y…

  • On that list, in no specific order, the bettre solo classes would be paladin zerk/bm/merc valk

  • The direct port mechanic was fun when the change happened because a lot of groups were using them. I'd be 100% for the return of the safe port, even if it promotes the most cancerous playstyle in the game (stealth groups camping ports). Tower …
  • @Superlaws so you want changes so casuals can just zerg ppl down, nice
  • Not at all
  • Actually that would be a fun event, where the only safe zone woukd be non frontier side. Every keep and tower ruined Guards in relic towns would be gone (on strike)
  • If it was anything, should be Eld and Enchanter get the longer one. It's almost as if you guys forget that clerics and healers are in every group (2x for healer) while mentalist is not. But yeah, eld.and chanter keep it, menty uses his set…
  • @Stoopiduser well, it's not as simple as take out stun replace with root. Let's say you take it out of a caster for the sake of being fair with other realms, then you need to out baseline stun on druid. But then druid already has a root, y…
  • @Tarkus There will never be a casual only server. Based on other server launches, we could expect a new server to peak at 4000 concurrent players in it's very max pop. However, it took 2.5 years for another server to reach the level of polish …
  • People seem to forget that 3/5 hib casters don't have baseline root. in some specs (void Eld, Light ment, Es Bainshee), the only reliable form of cc is the single casted stun. Hib casters are casual friendly. Hang in keeps, stun debuff nuke zerge…
  • Just feels like the casual zergers are mad that it's not as easy as it was to roll over 8 mans on EV
  • someone will have to explain how casuals losing direct port to EV would lead them to quit, like you can port when solo, you can port when grouped, just can't port when in a zerg because it'll randomly port you in different locations.
  • It's a conversation that will forever go in circles. Daoc has taken the competitive road, by increasing the quantity of abilities and limiting classes to very specific roles that you need to know and perform relatively well in to be somewhat comp…

  • Heavy tanks are probably the most balanced class in the game atm. They are in a really good spot. Judging by the title you want only warriors and valks to get that buff? Considering a warrior can easily spec 50 shield, has 2 really long duration …

  • Bs is kind of stuck with this server idea. If they do a classic/si, they directly compete with a server that has a much more agile team and that pushes updates and events at 5x the speed of BS and that is entirely free. However, they can pull the…
  • Fun comparing Blizzard's ability to pump out a classic server compared to BS, same companies, same ressources. Also, WoW just launched a new expansion, they keep building and pushing content into the main game. DAOC only "new" content are cyclic …
  • A charged target runs faster, compare the target run speed with your group mates, it'll tell you when it's over.
  • @Jorma The big part of this that everybody forgets is that this server would be ran by BS. A lot of the population that left blames BS (right or wrong) for the downfall of the game. Did BS learn a few things in these rough first years, I…
  • @Jorma not sure if you are really expecting a clear answer from BS. Their current position is that - the new server is still in process and they will share info when they are rdy to. That's all they will share for the moment. When they wil…
  • @Jorma it's cute that the entire company financial records fits on 4 lines, it's a really thorough analysis
  • @Jorma you think it is realistic that server costs would be 300$/month? Keep in my mind it would be hosted on Amazon servers, so quoting some random server hosting services is stupid. I tried doing a bit of research and saw a range from 300$ to mult…
