First batch answered!

By pressing Control + H (hides ui) and going into first person i think
you can take screenshots pretty safely.


Here are some questions

Mine first:
1.Out of /10 what do you rate the game at the moment:
I would give it a 6/10 just need more features unlock to see if they work like I said its a little grindy maybe they will fix when server back up/

2.What do you rate the game potential out of /10:::: 10/10 Could be the game everyone is looking for
3. which race is the best looking:::
Byfar Alfar i would say or maybe i am just a alfar freak lol

4. How do you rate total funness/enjoyment out of /10::::
Well i been waiting for ever and i would say 9/10 just need more tester in game

1. Mobs loot you.:
Havnt seen it yet but i think i heard someone say it was working

2. Mobs that gain a lot of kills increase in power through their experience.:::
Not sure

3. Mobs if left unchecked for too long establish their own cities.::::
Not sure

4. Mob's migrate by changing their spawn location if they are
killed too many times.::
Not sure

5. Mobs detect players through a combination of sound, sight and
smell. This implies staying down wind, moving lightly and in the
shadows should conceal you from mobs.::: T
he mobs are very hard to figure out they are amazing smart, guess i havnt really tryed to hide from one


can you confirm?

Morgan said...

Q. Can you tell us about the ambience of the game? Are there
special sounds like birds chirping or insects buzzing? When you swim
underwater, is the floor covered with aquatic plants and rocks?
Its amazing very well detailed i would say. Yes you will hear random noises like birds and other stuff untill you hhere someone fighting!!! :) and go for the kill!!!


Jonas Barkå said...

Q: Can you tell us more about the special attack skills that are
in the game. How specific a weapon category are they associated with?
Are there special attacks for ranged combat? Can you give any examples
of special attack skills?
Havn't seen any range attacks specials soo not sure but typical mvoe for sword that i always got was a knockback move and thats about it couldnt get skill high enough before wipe


Q: Have you had the chance to try spears and/or throwing weapons? if
yes what do you think about them.
Nope i want to but havnt seen any yet


Eric said...

Q: What are the stats on a some basic items? Have seen much of a
difference in stats on weapons ranging from low end to high end?
Example: Goblin Axe (+1 Axe) vs. Legendary Saber of the Pwn (+100
Sword, +100 Strength, + Health, etc.):::::
not really all weapons do about the same damage havnt seen a rare weapon or anything but all the gear i wore or found was almost same stats i mean little diffrence but not to make a huge diffrence at all.

pretty neat stuff. the lack of ranged specials is interesting, of course maybe the tester just didn't get a skill high enough yet.

i'm wondering about the melee knockback, does it throw them far back or just like a meter or so?

Mr.Dan said...

Some pretty terrible questions in there, although i liked the ambience one. i'll post mine again in hopes of getting an answer:

Q: What about skills not pertaining to spells or melee (such as traps etc.) Are there any of these types of skills in the game at moment? If so, explain a bit, thanks.

Ipsissimus said...

I can't belive some random illiterate wanker is in the beta and other more deserving people are left out..

connor said...

Q: can mahirim run on all fours?

XKwisite said...

Nothing we didn't already know but interesting none the less.

Q: Do you find magic or archer damage to be substantial or fair compared to melee damage? Also, Does leveling up archery for instance increase it's accuracy at all or solely it's damage?

BrownSwiss said...

Q. Have you had a chance to experiment with buff/debuff spells yet and if so how much do they seem to make a difference? - if not, what spells have you?

Joakim said...

That was some bad questions and answers. Give leakreader2.

scott said...

Sounds like they havent tested too much, maybe they are now finished with starting zones and will let the players test the rest in the coming weeks.

Q: Will Devs have enough time to test the rest of the content in your opinion and be ready for 02/25/09?

Mikolaj said...

There was a thread on forumfall titled "Take it from me - 02'er" it got closed and then deleted fast. Any1 seen this and could copy it here?

Newjack said...

he was just saying, the devs are mean and they are under experienced and they don't know how to pr.

Erik said...

official forums down?

It's A Twap said...

Yeah website and forums are both down, and they are hosted on different servers, maybe something is up, or maybe some people are pissed and attacking them?

Steven said...

ya hopefully something going down..

Nezabyte said...

*sigh* I hope they pull through today because I'm getting tired of their BS.

Steven said...

NICE mabie beta servers r commin up!!

Bartlebe said...

Their PR, or lack there of, is starting to get annoying.

Jonny said...

Maybe they are updating the site!

And maybe not...

Dustin Ward said...

did DFO just go down?

Dustin Ward said...

lol this is the only place i could think to post haha, pretty good community here actually

Bartlebe said...

Well they're only sending out a small handful of invites...if I were you guys I would try my hardest not to get my hopes up :/

Steven said...

they prolly just didn't wanna hear all of the bitching on the 22nd so they shut the forums down... heh

Jonny said...

Fine with me. It's not like any of the threads were worth reading anyways.

Dustin Ward said...

the website is still loading for me albeit slowly

Newjack said...

nothing is loading, but I doubt they will do anything to indicate this trial is going on, cept maybe, if we are super lucky, a forum post about it.

We are all going to play this game reguardless, but they should not treat us like crap and leave us in the dark.

Anton said...

Every site related to aventurine is down, even the noob comic. This indicates there will be no update once the site is up.

¹²³† =<>=ZàKà=<>= †¹²³ said...

anton, the DF site and DF forums are on different servers, this could be caused by too much traffic.

Dustin Ward said...

i'm in the forums!!! nothing new :(

Dennis said...

@ dustin there wont be anything new for a while because even the mods/devs can't get on the forum.

I'm guessing its just too much traffic because people are checking to see about open beta, and those that don't check the forums regularly are looking for release info. And since the forums are down they keep checking to see if its up hammering the site even more

aacewing said...

Word on Darkfall IRC is that its a DDOS attack...

Ed said...

Yea it is getting a bit old. Seriously reminding me of dark and light. I've been signed up for 5yrs and not even a hint of an invite. Not that I "deserve" it, but dang.

Ipsissimus said...

Lol...DDoS. How can they not repel it? If I'm not getting my beta key for this trial then I'll be happy if they get DDoS'ed some more.

No info, treating everyone outside the "elite circle" like crap..etc.

Fuck that. I'll never preorder and will carry on to better things for half a year, see IF Darkfall will be online for once.

aacewing said...

Main site is up and loading fairly quickly. Forums are still down though...

Bobolkins said...

I guess thats the forum stress test. it failed. lets hope the servers run better lol

noname said...

main site loading forums still down. Time in athens greece is
(that i posted this comment) 7:04pm 22nd..... should the devs be goign home now from work? i doubt its goign to happin on the 22nd.

Steven said...

Honestly they prolly work till around 10pm.. (my opinion)

Newjack said...

They work non stop I bet, but they are not posting anything new, since there is nothing new to say.

The invites went out, and we wait for ours, or a piece of news. Till then, no reason to say anything.

Anton said...

Newjack, gtfo.

They could atleast tell us that the first batch has been sent out. This would reduce the amount of "wut is going on were r beta?!?1!oNE!" threads.

Steve said...

Can leakers please give us any info about what changed with the trial for there beta experience ? Any new beta testers ? new Build ? what changes come with the new build ?

Peveus said...

j said...

the servers are STILL OFFLINE.

There is NO new build yet.

Sauce said...

I got a beta invite via my guild (who got 10) on Tuesday, we had to submit forum name and valid email. Haven't heard anything else since Tuesday though.

Steven said...

This is bad news to me guys... :(
seems very bad they cant even get the beta servers up after they were suppose to go up Monday.

Luke said...

presumably once the new build is ready those people who got their 10/20 invites will get responses and links for the new client

Boomer said...

This is up on the main website:


First wave of Invites - Thursday January 22 2009
Posted by Darkfall News on January 22, 2009 20:36
This is an update about what is happening today:
We have sent out the first wave of invites to clans and individual testers. We will send more waves of invites within a few hours. Invited players will be able to download the Darkfall installer.
We are applying the latest patch, and players will be able to start patching soon, and entering the game.
We are spacing out the invites in order to facilitate the download of the client and patching. We will continue sending out more invites every day until we reach our capacity.
Since this first phase has to do with stress testing the servers, and doing final testing on features, we are not lifting the NDA until this testing is concluded.
We apologize for the problems with the forums and the website today, we have been experiencing denial of service attacks, and we are working to resolve them.

Jonny said...

Yay! See, people were freaking out all day. Faith people! Have faith!

Oh, and enough the DoS attacks! Seriously... how is that helping?

(I'm not really sure who this comment is directed at...)

Steven said...

boomer where does it say that?
I don't see that...

Prophet said...

The news is on the main site, not the forum site.

Also some interesting pics:

Nezabyte said...

someone needs to link us to the torrent

Tyler said...

@ Steven

It was kind of hidden. You have to actually go to the news page instead of looking at main site.

http://darkfallonline.com/news/news_1232656569.html

Nice find Boomer.

Sorano said...

leak the .torrent for the client please!

Steven said...

O shit my bad boomer. wtf though who hides shit like THIS. w/e good news to my ears.

bo said...

@Sorano

No no no, they will be able to control who accesses the .torrent through the tracker. You have to make a new torrent =D

Oscar H said...

@bo that's not an official torrent since AV uses their own patching servers, not p2p, AFAIK.

So go ahead, someone publish the damn .torrent and the client will download much faster for everyone.

Michelle said...

Question-

How many people, and what clans, are in the beta?

j said...

SERVER STATUS FOR ADMINS: ONLINE

Steven said...

YES SIRS!!?s!

bo said...

Has anyone gotten a non-clan beta invite?
