DAoC: Movement in NF
It is daunting since New Frontiers is so large, if a direct port to a keep is not open (and only certain keeps can be ported into), it means you have to run or take a boat.
In the end I spend all of my time moving in hastener speed (and sometimes stealth) on my scout from Caer Renaris all the way to Caer Berkstead where I spend some time defending a tower and being called (came back to being dead and logged out)
I believe changes are coming in 1.114 which should make movement easier in NF, this isn’t confirmed but patch notes are due soon.
How could this be improved?
Some thoughts I had on this are the following:
- Allow every keep with over 3 towers able to be ported into.
- Expand the Forest Sauvage river all the way to Castle Sauvage so there is a safe set of docks available immediately, with locations around your entire frontiers, or the coasts of the enemy frontiers
- Every keep and tower should have a hastener outside the gates.
