  1. I would usually send you to the EK FAQ page ... but it seems it has been removed - to be updated i guess. Basically, Eternal Kingdoms are the player housing areas of Crowfall. They can be used to build community hubs, market places, crafting centers and such. For campaigns with no imports, EK's don't matter. For campaigns with imports, they can become useful base camps for preparation and secure crafting. It is also planned that monarchs will be able to set things like taxes. Parcels can be used to add land to an Eternal Kingdom (like a city or hills). Environment Parcels can provide a lot of basic resources. Stronghold Parcels can provide building tokens, which will allow you to place buildings or building parts of a specific size and type on it (like a villa or a castle wall). Buildings can provide connections slots for smaller building parts (like a work station or a vendor stall). Which again can provide connectors for even smaller building parts (like a vendor). The current max size of an EK is 20x20 cells (so 400 cells max), with 1 cell being 128x128 meters, which is the size of a farm parcel. Since you can place parcels in other peoples kingdoms too (if you got granted nobility in them), there is not really something like "too many" you can own. So, wether you can take benefit of a parcel or not purely depends on what you do with it.
  2. Currently the ability to found a guild is restricted to those who have a "Reserve Guild Name" reward in their backer bundle (Kickstarter Amber or higher) or who bought it specifically (currently available in the shop beginning with 9.99$). Once you have the right to create a guild, you can do so at crowfall.com -> community -> guilds (here). You will have to choose a Guild name, a guild name, a guild crest and a patron god. Once you created the guild, you won't be able to change these details (there may be one opportunitiy to do so later ... or there may be not). So give your choice some serious thoughts. Crests are pretty likely to get a chance to be changed, once the availale Crest Symbols are complete. Here is a list of the first badge of heraldry symbols, patterns and colors, so you can start checking out what you might want to use. Crests are shown in the open campaign world next to the name of each member of your guild. So also check how it looks when it is tiny. Name and tag are definitely fix. So don't mess that up or you will need to buy another Reserve Guild Name pack if you want to change it (=creating a new guild). We don't know yet which influence the choice of a patron god will have. But since the old guilds didn't have to chose them but new guilds do, and since nobody knows anything about what it means, it seems likely that we will be able to change that at least once in the future. Besides that, we will most likely be able to create guilds in the later game without spending money for it (the current thing is just about buying in to "reserve" the name pre-launch). It has been said (a long time ago) that guild creation most likely won't be for "free", though (maybe ingame stuff, but also not excluding that we may have to buy it (though i think the letter would be very unlikely)). Hope this helps. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  3. Off topic, off tooopiiiiic. Oh damned, that was accusing others of ... ~pooof~
  4. You are obviously a lucky one. This is what I picture is happening when she only reads my name!
  5. Regarding the current campaign? As far as I know, there is no way to get any accessory or equipment into the Trial of Kane campaign. If you join the campaign with a vessel, everything this character owns gets transferred to your spirit bank. Including inventory, equipped armor, weapons, saddles, badges and so on. If your spirit bank is already full, your stuff will go into the overflow inventory.
  6. Loved the stream. Relationships between the gods, that's an interesting topic. Especially when it comes to the relation between Todd and his free mouth and Pann and her understanding of sensitivities. In germany we call these special moments "Fremdschämen" ... and I have the feeling even the crow did it several times during the stream. Here's proof: It was very funny, though. So, thanks.
  7. Imports are deactivated for the Trial of Kane campaign. (because we can gain campaign points by crafting in this campaign) The import/export limits for the world you are currently in are usually shown at the bottom left and right of the spirit bank window.
  8. They just mentioned it in the stream. The import 0 limit is on purpose (because you now can gain campaign points via crafting).
  9. Not yet active, at least as far as i have seen. There are a few badge recipes in for testing though, like for grinding stone for alchemy. But you don't need anything but the according crafting discipline to use them. Anyways, that's an exception. The general mass production opportunities will come with the factories. As far as I know.
  10. Welcome (back) to the forums. On the LIVE server (not the TEST server, make sure to use the right one) the next standard campaign will start on Tuesday. Until then the "Campaign" folder will only show "no scenarios found" for every character. Once you enter an available standard campaign with one of your characters, this character will be locked to this campaign. the God's Reach beginner campain is currently open ("God's Reach" folder). Once you enter it with one of your characters, this character will be locked to this campaign. The Eternal Kingdoms are always ready to be opened. But you will get a "no scenarios found" message, if you try to enter one with a character that is locked to any campaign. If a character is locked to a campaign, it shows the name of the campaign it is locked to and a lock sign in the character list if you click on it. Otherwise it says "Unlocked". You can unlock a character by clicking the character and then onto the lock sign. Be aware that if you unlock a character from a standard campaign, you will loose all it's inventory that hasn't been saved to the spirit bank (press B when in the campaign world to open spirit bank). You can freely unlock a character that is locked to a God's Reach campaign, though. Hope this solves your problem Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  11. Welcome to the forums. The factory system will allow to do that. It's just not online yet (and presumably won't for some more time).
  12. Nothing in this statement is true, except of the "I", because that seems to be all what this is about: You! (Fair enough, though) One of the latest news articles stated well enough why God's Reach was implemented and how it is meant to work in the bigger scheme. During testing, there may be short times when no other campaigns are available. Like the last full pvp campaign ended on thursday and the next full pvp campaign will start on tuesday. In these times you can still pvp. Either in your EK, but also in the God's Reach campaign. To make it more easy for you: Go here These are full pvp zones, including forts and keeps and sieges. So, what are you complaining about? About not having full access to a campaign with more than 2 pvp zones for whole 4 days ... in a game at pre-alpha stage? Seriously? I love feedback, i love criticism. When it is sound or funny ... at least somehow. But your's doesn't seem to be ... anyhow. Let me be frank with you. What you showed here sounds, for me, like the usual carebear-complainer rambles that has been seen from time to time within the last four years: "I don't get enough victims, so this game is poorly made sockse! I want them now, I want them weak, I want to feel good without any effort ... and you owe me to get there. Not now, but yesterday!" (By the way: Up to now it never worked out well. Just saying.) That is not how it works. In each area of Crowfall, you will have to do something to get where you want to be. In your case, in this stage of development, right now, until tuesday, this would be to go to the siege islands. I know, it's a tall order. But sometimes we need to make sacrifices. Speaking of sacrifices, I am willing to take into future consideration that you might have intended to make your original post be funny (and maybe i just didn't understand it). Or that your anger was genuine, but you just didn't see that there were pvp islands on God's Reach. Or maybe you just had a bad day and exeggerated a bit. Or maybe you just wanted to show off a bit to, so you would find people matching your individual playstyle faster and easier. But, if you really meant it just the way you wrote it, man, i would recommend to reconsider the way you look at some things. I do it all the day. And sometimes it's not the worst idea. Anyways, have fun, good luck Kraahk
  13. I don't see any general issue here. Wanna fight? Go to the open campaigns. Problem solved.
  14. Da ich sonst immer nur in der Ecke stehe, wäre in der Runde zu sitzen mal eine Abwechslung. Ich bin auch ganz still. ~schwör~
  15. Welcome to the forums. They are not online yet. But the available God's Reach campaign is more secure (pvp deactivated on the training islands), so there should be enough to test for a while. As for your guild question in the other thread, based on what you said, Horizon could be a good choice. Maybe contact @DravoiX to get a first contact. In general, EU guild leaders are marked light blue in the offically unofficial crowfall discord channel. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  16. Not yet finally defined. But it's possible (maybe even likely) to stay the current way (at least for some time). Maybe we will able to hop into EK's later, with the inventory staying in the campaigns, though. This possibility has been mentioned before. But there might some new tech need to be implemented first.
  17. Once upon the time the shop offered Backer Upgrade Bundles that could be used to upgrade from a specific backer bundle to another specific backer bundle (like "KS Amber to 2015 Sapphire"). With the end of the backer era and the beginning of presale packages, those Backer Upgrade Bundles got finally consumed by the hunger. You can still and easily upgrade (unretired) pre-sale packages to a higher one directly on the shop website, as Arkade showed in the screenshot. To upgrade from a (retired) backer bundle to a (unretired) pre-sale package, you would need to contact support@crowfall.com and ask them what they can offer to you (state your current bundle and what you want to buy). While most other companies would most likely just tell you "no", ACE is usually very helpful in offering ways how to get where you would like to go. So give it a try. This said, let's take a look at some other possible ways. All backer bundles (KS, 2015/2016/2017) are retired. Retired bundles can easily and safely be traded with the officially trusted traders (TT) anshex.com and markeedragon.com. You could sell your KS Contributor to a TT and then buy a more expensive pre-sale package in the CF shop. You could sell your KS Contributor to a TT and then buy a more expensive backer bundle from a TT. You could trade-in your KS Contributor for a higher backer bundle at a TT. Be aware that buying something in the CF shop will always contribute to the "sum total spent on Crowfall". Either the test-access that is contained in your highest bundle/package or your sum total (whichever is higher) defines your test-access level. Just telling you for the sake of completeness. Test-level access doesn't really matter anymore, because it's only used for the TEST-Server and even then only if there is a big new milestone update. Permanent LIVE-Server access is included in all bundles/packages that contained a digital game copy (=every bundle above the 5$ supporter bundles). This also means that if you sell your KS contributor, you will still have test access, because your sum-total (40$) entitles you for beta-2 test access, even without owning the bundle anymore. If you buy a higher bundle from a TT, the sum you pay to them won't add to your sum total. You would need to contact support after getting the new bundle, in order to get entitled manually to the higher test-access of your current bundle. Personally i would recommend to always take a look at trade-in opportunities at the trusted traders first, because those retired bundles usually have a much higher value than the current pre-sale bundles in the CF shop. You can find a list of the contents for comparison here. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  18. Welcome to the forums. Kind of. Currently the easiest way to get rid of building parts without loosing them is to create one or two EK characters and to put those items into their inventory (you could also put then into vendor intentories, but that would cost you maintenance). There may be a building inventory later - or maybe not. We don't know yet. If you need to get rid of those items by deleting them (you will be able to redeem them again after the next rewards wipe) and want to test them later again, feel free to contact me and i should be able to provide you with some building parts, similar to your bundle content, to work with. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  19. Welcome to the forums. Just as pamintandrei said, email support. The address is support@crowfall.com. State you issue (if you want to, add the picture and/or a link to this thread) and they will solve it fast and accommodating. They are not your usual anonymous support, but your direct line to the developers. Let us know about the result if you find the time. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  20. Up to now sickles are not craftable items and you can harvest plants without them by using the F key. Will this change? Maybe, maybe not.
  21. Welcome to the forums. The black skin looks like a problem with your graphic driver. Make sure to keep it updated. Regarding the connection problem, if you contact support@crowfall.com they should be able to help you pretty fast. Please let us know what the problem was, once it is solved. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  22. As owner of a kickstart backer sapphire bundle, you own Alpha-1 Test Access to the playtest servers, due to the sum total you spent on crowfall a digital copy of the game, as part of your backer bundle a digital copy of the game, as part of the physical collectors edition, which is part of your rewards You can gift any giftable object to any other account, with both accounts using 2-factor-authentification. The digital game copy itself is not (yet) giftable. Since a lot of accounts already own more than one game copy, it is most likely that there will be a system that will allow us to pass over unused game copies to others and the team already said that they will try to get there. The kickstarter bundle you bought is tradeable via gifting. If you consumed (=unpacked) it, you can contact support@crowfall.com and ask them to rebundle it if you still have all the originally contained parts of the bundle on your account. Even if you sell your bundle, you won't loose your access to the pre-launch tests. Access to the playtests is based on the sum total you spent. You would need to buy a game copy then to have access to the final game, though. This said, there is no intended way to share test access with others (though Gordon once said, that he won't oppose to some kind of friend referral at one point - and though people can still apply to a free beta test by simply registering an crowfall account on the website afaik). Theoretically you should be able to let your bundle be rebundled, gift this bundle to someone else, let this person re-gift all the giftable contents to you (including the collectors editon which contains a game copy) and then you both would be able to both test now and to play the final game. Your friend may need to contact support after getting the bundle, in order to be entitled, though. Theoretically. The best way to get friends into the game may still be to just suggest to register an account to get a free beta test-access. And maybe to tell them to join a guild on the webste before buying the game to be able to use the special one-time guild-member discount. Hope this helps, and whatever you do have fun, good luck Kraahk
  23. Welcome (back) to the forums. It might be useful to understand that the passive skill training system is only one of several parts of the game that contribute to character stats and abilities (like vessels, levels, talents, discipline-runes, equipment, consumables). Other than talents or discipline runes for example (which unlock abilities and can only be achieved by active playing), skills only provide supplementary bonusses. They need to be understood as a form of gaining general experience with your soul in combat and crafting and nature studies over time, that will enable you to do better, no matter what body you use. Besides the accumulation principle (gathering skill points for several days, so no need to be online the moment a skill is done) the skill system will also include catch-up mechanics after release, provided by tradeable skill tomes (players can put unused skill points into tomes and trade them with others). All of this put together, there should be no significant problem for people who want to solely focus on active gameplay in the final game. Regarding refunds: Refund policies depend on your national laws. If in doubt, contact support@crowfall.com. Tell them from where you are, which package you bought, the date you did it and which country you live in/are citizen of. Besides that you can always sell retired backer bundles to the officially trusted traders anhex.com and markeedragon.com. You can find more informations about that in the FAQ -> trusted traders. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  24. Some general thoughts about this first. (and please note, when I say "you", i mean it in general and not you personally) There have been two ways to get a stronghold. Buying a backer bundle that included one or more strongholds Buying a specific stronghold bundle, while they were available. In both cases - back in the days - it has been made clear, that these bundles were meant to contribute to the funding of the later game; to make sure the company will be able to make it. Of course those bundles contained stuff for the later game, but nothing of immediate importance regarding p2w aspects. And of course nobody (including the team) knew what would precisely be what in the final game anyways. And above that, as soon as the funding was done, those bundles have been removed from the shop. Besides from contributing to the backing of the development, if you bought a single stronghold bundle, you may have wanted to have the regarding building/title in the later game. You will get that. So you should be good. if you bought a backer bundle, the earlier you backed, the more hilarious is what you will get out of it. At kickstarter the bundles already contained multiple times the value of their price. Additionally, later the value of the strongholds increased dramatically after they did some development and were able to do more than just guessing. Like, a small castle bundle was originally calculated with 250$, but now the content value is 2,450$. The usual KS bundle value was 4 times the price. So if you bought a bundle with a small castle in it, you actually only paid 62.5$ for this stronghold. I don't see why anybody should now be able to get (2450/15=) 166 month VIP tickets for a spent 62.5$. And besides, 62.5 is a sum people who bought a package that included a castle shouldn't get a headache from. Just saying. This said, when the new world sizes and the island principle first came up, Todd mentioned that it would theoretically be possible to use this system to make campaign worlds out of EK's. There had been discussions about this before, because some people always liked the thought of being able to wage war against other guilds by attacking their kingdoms. But the island principle finally opened the opportunity. Todd didn't exclude the possibility of EK wars. I would assume that it is very unlikely to be included for launch (much more important stuff to do). But since the technology is there, I think there is an extremely good possibility that it may be included in a future extension. By the way, stronghold bundles are expired shop bundles ... and by this can be legally traded with the trusted traders anshex.com and store.markeedragon.com. Though currently only markeedragon is offering (and sometimes buying) them. So, if someone doesn't see any other use for an owned stronghold, this may be a possibility. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  25. mine was an addit. yours was a removit. ninja refered to the stealth and hiding thing you did. how can i ever trust you again now, huh? no wait, that would imply that i once ... wah, never mind.🙄 and just to stay on topic ... bonds arise everywhere. we just delivered a strong testament to this. so, guys 'n gals, even if you are not ready to join a guild yet (but you really should), try to get connected. use the ingame chat, the discord channels or even the forums ... but get connected. this game is meant to be played with others against others. not playing with someone means playing against anybody else. don't do that. don't be a lone soul. find your bonds. just saying. don't complain afterwards, if you don't try it.
