Keep it up and act like there isn't a difference between completely asinine grinding and grinding that's was well thought in terms of gameplay and progression.

Every MMO has grinding. Hell every video game ever made has grinding in some form. To go from point A to B usually involves some crucible and this crucible will have a repetitious task that you have to overcome.

Darkfall's skill and attribute grinding falls into the asinine category. The thing about it is actually an improvement over what it was before and it's STILL insane for the amount time it takes for someone to go cannon fodder to borderline contributor to really help your clan mates in a skirmish.

You talk about stuff to do in Darkfall other than PvP? Yeah probably the only thing of consequence to do in Darkfall other than PvP is PREPARING to PVP. Because the quest system and other such amenities are poor compared to even F2P MMOs, and this is a P2P title.

You keep harping about me wanting to go max level. No I want Aventurine to wake up and catch a clue that you need fresh bodies to keep the game going.

I want the lot of you to stop with your blanket statement that all MMOs have grind like if it's some epiphany that I'm not getting. All games have grind in them, when a game has grind that serves no purpose except to expand the gulf between PvP ready and PvP cannon fodder then it's a complete sham. Especially when it bills itself as a PvP game.

The only thing you're not getting is that you don't speak for everyone, lol. Darkfall's grind is "asinine" to you and that's great, we heard you the first time.

Other people enjoy the game despite your attempts to warn everyone about how horrible it is.

Such is life.

Heya folks, i'm Shiva Firewing. one of the those "veterans" in darkfall.
my character ranks up there with the top 2% and my bank is one of the richest in he game.

i say this to make one thing clear.
Darkfall has a grind. this grind comes from the fact that darkfall has a lot of things to do for a player. Melee, Archery, magic school, Dozens upon Dozens of spells, Gathering, Crafting.

Then you do these with PvE and PvP, add travel, and gear-farming/getting/sorting and that brings a heavy time-investment.

Darkfall is not a "casual" (
