You do start with an axe to chop trees with, you chop trees and make a hammer to chop rocks with and then with rocks and wood you make a pick to chop ore with. You can make basic armor and weapons out of wood and rocks.

From the main menu, you should be able to go to Worlds > Kingdoms > My Kingdoms and launch your personal kingdom.  As long as you make it private, you can mine trees, rocks and ore in private.  You can then craft some gear, and store it in your spirit bank, I believe they call it.  You can then pull the items from the spirit bank when you're in a regular campaign world.

Why do so much work to make (or play) "not Minecraft?"

"Minecraft but with RvR" is I believe one of the selling points.

Is it safe to claim KS stuff, or do I risk losing it if I get ganked and/or to server wipes?

So, for the few of you who care, this still exists.   why so serious?

They've sent out a notice we can create our guild on the website now, if you pledged high enough.  The in game ('short name') can't have spaces, so I'll reserve BatCountry.

Also asks for a motto.  Just going to put in "We can't stop here" until somebody comes up with something better.

If any of you other than myself still care about this, post your account name and I'll invite you in.

When they wipe they give your ks stuff back, not sure if you can lose it in pvp but this is not permanent yet you'll get everything when the game launches for real.

Crafting is the only way to make any item in the game, this was one of the big selling points.

What does crafting have to do with SB? Didn't we just build npc crafters who did something I never cared about because I only cared about server drama and pvp fights and whose shield was on which castle where?

A nation consists of its laws. A nation does not consist of its situation at a given time. If an individual's morals are situational, then that individual is without morals. If a nation's laws are situational, that nation has no laws, and soon isn't a nation.

Crafting was big in SWG, CF's other parent.

I would play this if it ever got done. The problem would of course be that I have no time to play anything anymore.

Founder's Update: Target Dates & Victory Conditions

tldr; over a year late and the best they can offer is a "soft launch" sometime "early in 2018"  why so serious?

2015-2018 seems like a perfectly reasonable development time. Which obviously means their original estimates were vastly optimistic, but to be fair a good chunk of the delay is for improvements due to extra funding. The race/class split from archtypes is a game defining change that massively improves their chances of success and well worth a delay.

I haven't played for a while, 5.3 is about to drop with the race/class split and new skill trees so I've been holding out for that. Did find this video from their test server which just screams "Shadowbane with new graphics and action combat" to me. Probably because its the same fucking people.

It's the same combat system, if you didn't like it before i doubt you would like it now. The video i posted up there does a good job of showing the combat.

It does depend when Draegan last tried it. Combat has been reworked quite a lot since say, a year ago.

The problem I had with that video was that it looked like NO ONE DIED. Like there were fucktabulons worth of effects, skills, power ups, spells, and attacks and nobody seemed to die. They just kept banging on and on and on like everyone was suddenly a castle door in a Warhammer Online siege. I'm all for not getting one-shotted but that looked like really long, drawn-out monkey fapping without any sort of climax.

I didn't like the philosophy of the system. The performance wasn't an issue for me.

Abilities on keys 1-6.
Almost each ability had a chain.
Each chain sometimes had a 2nd option that could be used by pressing E instead of the number.

So you had RMB and LMB for standard attacks. Then you could end up using 1,1,1,1 or 1,1,e,1.

It really didn't flow at the time like Black Desert, TERA or Blade and Soul. I hope that had changed because the game's systems were pretty rad.

Do not be there. Or do, but you probably won't be happy. I tried in a beta a few months back and it was not sticky at all. Functional, but not what I'd call fun.

I've been screwing around with it too, but haven't really dipped my toe into PVP yet. I don't like how the crafting and harvesting disciplines are drops you have to find in PVP zones, and haven't managed to find a guild yet. I really don't want to have to even listen to voice chat, and just want a decent chat channel where I can ask questions and shit.

The crafting discipline upgrades are drops from crafting, not pvp. And the gathering disciplines drop while gathering in pvp zones, which really is barely different from the standard "fill up a bar until you skill up" mode. Having to actually be in a pvp zone to gather effectively is basically a must for a game like this. The only "non pvp" zones are the tutorial servers anyways.

Ahh I thought I had heard that the crafting ones were drops somehow. Either way, I played this for like two days and just gave up. Sunk cost fallacy be damned, this game is fucking awful. New World felt like Robot Jesus by comparison, just because it was competently executed.

Judging by this game's Steam user count, the only people playing this thing are in this thread.

The game was hard on my old PC, so strike one against it was on me. But even hacking through the slideshow, I just couldn't figure out what the game was trying to do. This part is PvP, this part is a tiny 'your world' area, very few quests, just running around chopping trees.

I honestly don't know what the hook was supposed to be, it was totally lost on me. I'm old, busy and past my mmo prime, but I at least thought I would find a few interesting ideas. Never did.

Maybe I still hold out for the idea of one server being a place for all players to play with all their different playstyles. I'm not sure.
