Now they are about to release Darkfall 2.0, which is considered a new game. I think that's a good idea. Reading some of the changes, I found myself laughing.
Character skill set customization and role selection through the implementation of Darkfall’s new armor system and through attribute boost via achievements: What armor you wear greatly affects which skills you can use effectively and it makes others ineffective. You’re highly specialized in one role making your character extremely efficient and effective in that role. The major attribute boost works exponentially to give your character access to special items and weapons setting him further apart from the hybrids.
New skills are going to be added, and redundant ones will be removed from the game.
Skill and attribute gains have changed considerably. If a new player focuses on a single role, he will excel at that role in a relatively short time frame through casual play. More options and more roles will become available to him. Players can use one specialization at a time however.
Now, if that isn't my role system. The "What you wear is what you are" idea. The transfer of EVE Online to a fantasy MMORPG !
Well done, Aventurine! And thanks for testing my idea ... Is it actually possible to copyright such ideas ? ;)
