    The comic is somewhat simplified - flying will likely be "just" the major option. The other one might require friends nearby + brand new corpse in someone's backpack (it's like a piece of gear, not cheap and of various qualities) + present necromancers + some additional reagents or money, something like that. Expensive and depending on circumstances.

    I wonder how often a new player is expected to die.

    It depends - do you have a guild or group, do they have keep / fort or any kind of shelter to retreat to, what is your primary role there, are they winning or losing the Campaign etc.

    That is, if one tries to play alone, he might be dying often enough to just quit the game.

    Crowfall - Duelist Powers & FX video looks great to me. The comments on the video are brutal.

    Thought it was a digging gopher who can "stealth" by tunneling. Anyway, I thought it was great.

    You'll have a blast playing our newest archetype, the Guinecean Duelist. Whether he's whipping his rapier through the air or burrowing himself underground, he's a ton of fun in a pint-sized package.

    Guess it's a Guinea Pig?

    maybe, but he also has an ability called "gopher broke" (hahahaha, puns, the highest form of humor), so who knows

    It's Van Helsing guinea pig ( *cough). Here's how it looks in action:



    ...and this is general alpha preview, still bare bones but better. Skip first 100 seconds - that's where he uses ancient 2015 footage to explain the game to his subscribers:

    A stealth character in a pvp mmo means 80% of the population will be made of guinea pigs.

    All jokes aside though, the Duelist in its current form is a completely broken character concept. You have fast moving stealth, which even when detected is just a small pile of dirt in the grass, powerful ranged attacks with a stun, instant disengage, and super small, hard to hit, body frame. Doesn't seem like they thought this one through.

    They'll tweak it million times till launch. Furthermore, current meta-parties consist of Centaurs (support/healer), Minotaurs (warrior/tank) and one or two Confessors (fire DPS). No rats ;)

    Edit: while I'm here, they just revealed Templar (healer/tank) - https://crowfall.com/en/news/first-look-templar-powers-ui/

    I really liked Shadowbane. I just saw their skill system. I really thought this game was going to have significant character development, but it seemed very lite on the preview. Three passives? And just selectable skills?

    I hope I'm missing something. Was that just a small part of the whole, or is that the sum of the system?

    I'm not following Crowfall closely enough.

    Can we pull in a dev to answer our questions here?

    This is the article I am referring to. I certainly could be missing a major character development system as I don't follow anything very closely until I start playing it on release. But I looked through all the things that look like it could be character development related.

    In other words, don't worry about that. You've either read something wrong, or saw just a minor piece of the puzzle.

    Are you trying to be mysterious or can you link to an article explaining what you are claiming or a fourm post, anything?
