    FAQs

    As I understand this area of the site, the FAQ allows you to send a question directly to the devs and get a personal reply? Is this not allowing people to get a competitive edge? Most people are posting on the forum and may get a vague response from Virtus (no offense, I understand why this is the case), where responses to FAQ questions seem a lot more detailed. Should each response not be listed on a page, or at the least added to a locked thread on the forum or something?

    FAQ QUESTION:
    Having read that the best crafters will be able to work with the developers to create their own unique item I was wondering if following any other specific path will lead to equally amazing opportunities?

    FAQ ANSWER:
    Hello Cradlejoe,

    The short answer is yes. We have some plans but I need to keep them as a surprise until we're certain we have the resources (enough artist time) to deal with them.

    Thanks for the question!


    FAQ QUESTION:
    Hey, My question is about taming and animals. Will the only purpose of taming/training animals be to use them in combat or will different animals serve different purposes like sneaking/scouting/gathering? Also, looking at the screenshots I see that there are bear cubs with their mother. I thought about the unlikely hood of being able to tame a fully grown bear so I thought you maybe have to kill a cubs parents and then try and tame the cubs? Thanks

    FAQ ANSWER:
    Hello Cradlejoe,

    For now animal pets are for combat or just for fun, but I like these ideas. Having your pet sneak when you sneak, having pets aid in tracking and scouting... doesn't sound too hard to implement. I will definitely keep these things in mind.

    About the bears, yup, bear (and other animal) cubs are easier to tame.

    Thanks for the questions.


    FAQ QUESTION:
    Hello again guys. After reading about the fact you had speed tree I was thinking if it would be possible and practical (Game mechanic wise) to give players the ability to climb trees. Obvious this would take time and would be heavily dependant on your condition and weight. Also, great work answering these questions! Cheers

    FAQ ANSWER:
    Hello Joe,

    This is a great idea, and something I've thought about. I'd love to have
    tree houses! Right now though, there is no climbing of trees. I can
    imagine how to program this though, so it's a neat potential future feature.

    Thanks for the suggestion!


    FAQ QUESTION:
    Hey, I have two questions today. The first, how hard/easy is it to change your alignment from super evil to super good through actions. The second, Is the skill system designed more so that a character has only one specialist area or can have a specialist are and then like a secondary area which isn't so built up. Thank you!

    FAQ ANSWER:
    Hello Joe,

    1) It will be very difficult to raise your alignment from evil to good.
    I'd say impossible right now. With religion we will have ways for the
    evil to regain good status, but that's a planned feature, not something
    for the start of the game.

    2) The skill system will allow players to focus on several skills or a
    group of skills, but it will be very difficult to master many skills.

    I hope that answers the questions!


    FAQ QUESTION:
    Hey, I was wondering if the undead you see in the screenshots are players or NPCs. I ask this because I was led to believe that the undead are the evil players. And if they are NPCs then why have evil tribes?

    FAQ ANSWER:
    Hello Joe,

    In the screenshots these were players, but as we're not going to allow
    players to play undead yet this is not an announced feature. There will
    be undead NPCs during the Prelude.

    The system for players becoming undead will be announced later.
    Currently it's not an official feature.

    Evil tribes are for players who want to be evil. That's about it. :-)

    Thanks for the questions.



    Hopefully this will prove helpful for people.
    Brum, brum.

    I hope more ppl will post their questions/answers here.

    Never shall innocent blood be shed. Yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of God.

    Sounds to me like Cradlejoe should get the title of Xsyon Prophet. And lo did the lead dev bestow upon Cradlejoe the knowledge of things to come. And it was good.
