    Just so you know, this game is mostly PvP focused 

     With that said there is a lot of harvesting a.k.a. gathering, and crafting which is probably up your alley. 

    I am a hardcore gathering nutcase.  I love to gather, craft and grind.   I'm not against pvp, but really not into it.   But Albion Online and Black Desert Online are both PVP orientated games and I have done a decent job as a gatherer and supplying market with my rare goods or resources.


    My goal in Crowfall, is to become a known crafter, of simple but good quality goods.  Somebody affordable and always in stock, and best prices in all the lands lol.   Or atleast that is my goal.   As to what ill make I dont know, gonna spend this time to learn the game, experience it, see what there is, try this, try that, I have time until release to decide the fate of my character.   But I am a huge fan of grinding mobs, crafting and gathering.


    Games I enjoy are games like

    Albion Online(im solo)

    Black Desert Online(Im solo)

    Diablo 3

    Path of Exiles

    World of War Craft(all I do is kill the same low level creeps and sell the silk on the market, for me, thats fun)

    Guild War 2(loot and sell on market)

    When I feel an inch for pvp, I tend to play Arma 3 or Battlefield 4  But I am not at all against trying pvp in a game like this.

    Other games I been solo mostly in, but unrelated to this, would be Ark, Rust and Conan, so I am used to the lose all on death concept.

    I am just used to grinding non stop and I find it to be the most relaxing way to spend my time, gathering, grinding and crafting.

  2. Hey all,



    Decided to buy the game.   


    About me.  I am an older loner, I enjoy pc games like Albion Online and Black Desert Online,   I love grinding, gathering and crafting.  I often play solo as I listen to audio books, and cant do that in active voice chats.   I am not a huge pvper, nothing against it, I just perfer to gather and sell my goods to those who need it.



    If you have any helpful beginner info to offer me, I am all ears!  Thanks

    Guilds are important in this game, but there are some aspects that are more solo friendly than others. All harvesting except motherlodes can be done solo. When caravans are introduced in the next patch, that will give people another way to get resources, and that might make the world safer for solo harvesters, though we should also see a significant increase in population, which might mean that there are very few safe places. It will depend on how many people are in each campaign. There are worlds where there is no PvP, and words with more limited PvP, but the resource levels will be lower in those worlds.

    You can craft solo. Most of the stuff you can craft will require 1 or more subcomponents from another profession. Currently, most recipes can be accessed by everyone, regardless of training, so you can make those subcomponents yourself. You won't be good at making them, though, and would be better off making use of the economy to buy those parts from other players.

    Combat-wise, solo is going to be hard. You might be able to gank some harvesters now and then, but with a larger population, your more likely to find yourself outnumbered.

    The divine favor system that is being added in the next patch may allow you to contribute more to the war effort as a solo player. We don't know all of the details yet, but it will be basically a quest system that will give people things they can accomplish that will earn points for their faction or guild. I would guess some of those things will be able to be completed by a solo player.

    It really depends on your goals in the game. If you want to be a crafter, then I'd say solo is more viable. If you want to be more involved in combat, then you'll probably want to join a faction based campaign, rather than a guild based campaign. 

    Once the next patch goes live, they will be inviting everyone who has created a Crowfall account, so you'll get a chance to try the game for free. You can then decide for yourself if it's a game that you want to play.


    Thanks,  I am not against pvp, but I am just a huge fan of being an epic crafter like the days past in SWG, where when somebody wanted a certain piece of armor, they would look to see if you had any on sale first before settling for another persons crafted goods. 

    I enjoy harvesting and farming npcs.   PVP happens, but being forced to have to use discord to chat with people is a turn off for me.  Ill do it when I need, but I am an older gamer, and I sometimes just wanna lay in bed and grind npcs and farm resources without having to listen to people talk all night.  I did that for the last 10 years and it ruined mp mmorpgs for me.  Playing solo has given me alot of my freedom back.



    Thanks for the info, still considering this game.

  4. First, I tried posting in Q& A but for whatever reason this is the only section I am able to post in.



    Ok, so I am thinking of buying this game, but how solo friendly is the game?  I am ok with it being hard, but if its like not possible at all, that would be an issue for me.  I tend to game 90% at night, which using a mic at 2am would present an issue for me, and after 10 hours of work, the last thing I really want is to hear 20 people yelling and coordinating.  I just like to enjoy my audio books, and go grind mobs and craft gear.



    Games I have played solo and enjoyed include


    Albion Online(some aspects are not solo friendly)

    Ark Survival




    now all are better with friends I know, but does this game have any long term enjoyment for the anti social solo gamer who just wants to farm npcs, craft goods and sell it to the community?   I can spend hours just grinding mobs and crafting in mmorpgs.   Thanks in advance.
