Relax, you will be able to grind in safe zones and istances without being pk'ed all day long. But honestly, even if you aren't much for pvp, you still should try BG's, it can be pretty fun even for pve players.

Not really Razz . Yes here you can find lots of pvp if you want to, but actually nothing forces you to pvp, as pve zones are still much larger than pvp ones, and all instances are pure pve.
I'm pvp player, but i understand those who dant want to get ganked, and they should be calm as nothing will gank them as long as they wont go to pvp zones. But as i said before, they really should try battlegrounds, it can be fun even for pve players, just look at it like sport Smile

@ Hadas1

Funny you should mention Battlegrounds. That's PvP that I personally have no issue with and will try once I get a character that can hang in the insanity. I'm cool with jumping into the fray and getting my butt kicked. I'm cool with instance-specific or objective specific PvP that is an active choice and doesn't interfere with my attempts to enjoy the PvE content. What I'm not cool with is trying to read text boxes, complete mission objectives, and level up my character while a small army of top geared max level characters are constantly trying to kill me simply because they know they can. But we all know that there are people out there who only love full-on PvP simply because it gives them a reason to actively grief and hinder other players. Some people are jerks, and that's one thing that can really drag down someone's playing experience and even drive people away from the game if it gets bad enough (the game Shaiya comes to mind in this instance).

Maybe I should say that it's PKing more so than PvP I have issues with?

That's the one aspect of PvP that I don't like and don't want any part of, and I don't want the game to literally punish me for making that choice. No matter what your choice is (be it full PvP, consentual PvP, or straight PvE), a good well-rounded game won't limit you or punish your progress for how you decide to play.

Apologies if I'm sounding somewhat repetitive, but I'm just trying to be as clear as I can and am trying not to make confusing posts.

*sigh* open-world PVP zones... one of the worst inventions in MMO history. the breeding ground of griefers... well, I'll support the game in terms of getting something less cloistered out in the west, but if that sort of lack of content is what to expect... I'll probably not play very far before dropping it.
 


OMG pls. That is first MMO from years (after L2 and EVE) focused around PvP and you post comments like this.


I do not understand this PvE carebers. They must have every game done for PvE, no PvP... pathetic.

Wiesor, just because you don't agree, you don't have to label someone a carebear. Really rude, and shows no ability for logical argument at all. Makes me think of a teen. You're old enough to play, right?

Grimoire, I wouldn't worry too much yet. From my experience in Caergate, you entered the area in a base. You could easily and safely read your quests there. Was the base attacked sometimes? Yes, part of the game. But for the most part it was safe. The escort quests could be annoying with the opposing side waiting to jump you, but the way it was set up, it was usually a group of you going to escort them (it was a quest that started at 40 minutes past every hour). Even if you died, you could revive, run and catch up with the group, and complete the quest. I got some satisfaction from getting back at the people who killed me, too.

The way they have the game set up, I think it's going to be OK. It's a war. You're not meant to be a lone hero, we work together. And the reason they don't have it on the main page yet is that I'm sure they haven't made any official decisions on how it will be yet. They'll fill it in when it's more certain, I'm sure.

I aggree. I quit playing Aion long time ago because I was constantly ganked while trying to level. It wasn't fun. Get ganked from behind, respawn, ruuuuuuun allllllll the waaaay baaaack, only to get ganked again by the same guy camping your spot. That is not fun.

I'll try some PvP. I'm mostly all PvE for the above reasons, but if it's a game that gives me a fair chance to have some fun with it, then I will. Catering only to PvP OR PvE is a mistake IMO. If I only wanted PvE, I could play Skyrim, BUT if I only wanted to boost epeen by beating other players, then why not Street Fighter.

Exactly this. ^

If I need my PvP "fix" I resort to shooters and fighting games. MMORPGs with their typical tab-target/point-and-click combat mechanics just don't do it for me in PvP mainly because it all amounts to a "numbers" game where the victor is predetermined by who has the highest level, the best stats, the strongest gear, the most optimized skillset, the most pots (and if he/she is even potting to begin with), and so forth.

A buddy of mine in SWTOR proved this to me: On his highest level character, which I believe was a Scoundrel if memory serves me right, he allowed several lowbies in the opposite faction to attack him for quite a bit out of pity. Why? Because they were merely chipping away his health, while in contrast he knew he could kill them in a few hits. And he did after getting bored. I just couldn't help but shake my head, but the scenario rings true in just about any MMORPG sadly enough.

PvP is a joke in MMORPGs if I may be so blunt. This is why I prefer to PvE in MMORPGs. I just feel like the genre isn't suited for PvP and games like Scarlet Blade are no different (given its tab-target combat system). TERA is probably the only MMORPG that I will partake in PvP, but even then it has its own set of issues that deter me from truly enjoying PvP there. And so with that said I prefer to PvE in MMORPGs, but so-help-me-God I will be brutal in PVP-oriented games like shooters and fighting games.

But with Aion all zones are pvp zones apart from starting zone and the main city. In this game not all zones are pvp zones so you don't have to worry about about getting ganked randomly while doing a quest
