I got my first Tittle!

After killing more than 500 kobolds, I finally got my first Tittle. As every element of character progresion, the Tittle Quests are pretty long but it feels really good when you finish it. I have done most of the Quest in Orks Lands and so, now I have a long way to Red Moon to claim my reward and my tittle. I think I'm getting a +2 bonus in vitality or something like that. One more step towards being ready for PvP. I'm also hoping I can participate in some big PvP fight soon.
Well, the Mahirim Wanderer is on the road again!!!

Enchanting is a little %$·%&/

I'm trying to get my enchanting skill up and logically I've been farming mats from mobs. Everyone is telling me that enchanting is a real pain in the ass since it's very expensive and hard to skill up but anyway, I'd like to be kind of autonomous and try every piece of this game, so... First I discovered that for starters you can only use Quality 1 mats until you have enchanting@25. I had few Q1 mats so I kept on farming mobs, Revenants were nice with their daggers and staff drops. When I had some more I tried it again but I could only make very few and useless things. I think I'll forget about enchanting until two weeks or so, then I'll recheck my mats with this and I'll see what can I do.

Another Long Journey

These last few days I've been in Mahirim lands farming the Hiveking Queen and getting some racials. I don't have all of them so I know I'll be back in that beautiful land. Today, after a failed and really annoying atempt last night, I've made another long long journey to the other side of main Agon. I say another because in my first days I joined The Covenant of the Phoenix and also made really long journeys to find them. I was so anxious that I made those first travels alone on foot. Half Agon alone and on foot my friends! That's why people call me The Lone Wanderer.

Adrenalin Rush

One of the many things that separates Darkfall from WoW, the two mmorpgs I've played, is the Adrenalin Rush. In WoW, your character or your equipment are not in real virtual danger at any moment and the death penalty is the journey to your spot or some equipment durability. In Darkfall, your character is not in any danger either, but your equipment... hell, yes. So, when fighting in a relly tight fight and, mostly of foremost, when fighting with or even fleeing from players, the Adrenalin Rush kicks really hard. I really need to work on my relaxation and cold-bloodedness (this word doesn't exist, does it?) because when in AR I can't think straight, even less tactically. I guess time will help me with that.

Steedgrass: Love and Hate

To create new mounts, highly need if you aren't training for the marathon, you need Steedgrass and you can get it from Herb Spawns but, man, it's so rare I have just found 4 of them in 2 weeks and I've surely been gathering a lot since my Herb Gathering is @58. I think I got the 4 of them in a hamlet's farm where its drop chance must be a little higher.

Trust Issues

I've had a bad experience toda and it ilustrates perfectly what I wrote in this Darkfall Forum thread. I was going to the bank in Red Moon to get gold to buy some racial and melee skills when I see a fellow mahirim in there. I was mounted so I think: Do i dismount and unspawn here, far away? And I think, bah, it's mahirim capitol and it'll be a second, that blue player is not going to steal my mount. But, just after I dismount, as if he was waiting, he steals it and leaves. He said "that's how the game is" and I answer "No, it's how you play it". There is a trend between some gamers in which you have to be the most-whatever character. Lots of people play looking to be the most efficient character instead of just playing and having fun. So, now, that you can steal someone mount without penalty, lots of people do it. Soon, I hope, the new alignment system will punish these kind of action and they'll stop doing that.
Well, I don't know, I play for fun. Probably I'll never steal an allied's horse, it's just my way of playing. On the other hand, this "everyone is an enemy" ambient may change my mind. We'll see.

Well, on january 4th, I started playing this game and I completely fell in love with it. After some thought I've decided to start writing about it. So, I've been playing for half a month and my character is still pretty "nooby". I have melee and archery above 30, I've recently bought my first Greater Magic spells and I haven't had any real PvP, even if I've been ganked many times.
I've joined The Covenant of the Phoenix clan, a serious, very friendly and not hardcore clan. Currently I'm roaming orks newb lands trying to rise my skills, gather some materials and get my first title quest. I'm really eager to be able to go hunt some players and I'm starting to feel ready. We'll see.
