Default Questions before getting the game

Hey there!

Me and a friend are considering getting the game, but we'd like to clear some open questions before we click on buy:

How much time do we have to invest into the game every day to not get attacked in a row because we don't make enough coins to buy protection? Are player sieges very frequent?

Can we choose in the beginning how close our kingdoms are together? If yes, would other people - we've got 2 more people maybe interested - be able to settle close to us later too?

Is it very costly to buy attack protection?

What happens to our towns/kingdoms when we loose a siege? Is it a huge setback, or is it something that can be ignored?

We're mainly interested in the Multiplayer aspect of the game, completing quests together, trading ressources, etc. We don't really want to play a lot and be able to siege others, the PVP aspect isn't all that catching. And we aren't looking to catch up on our missing playing time by buying a lot of coins for real money :P

Thanks in advance for any replies!

Great Questions.

You don't have to invest a lot of time at all infact if you build up all your city and get your army with out a wall no one can attack you.

You can choose the same region and traits and have a very similar looking castle.
Multiplayer is server based you won't see your friends till you attack. We plan on adding this feature tho.

PVP protection is cheap, heres my thread on best way's to farm gold.http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/s...ead.php?t=7285


You honestly don't need to spend a dollar to enjoy the game, hope this information helps, don't hesitate to contact any of us in-game or support@reverieworld.com we would be happy to help you.

1. City Attacks dont need any time for you to prevent
Dawn of Fantasy Online Kingdom is Online based but your still not going to be attacked once your Logged off.
So no worrys on that front

2. You can choose your Starting Point dependent on your Race
By now there is not any real use in being close together except that it doesnt take as long to get Armys to the same City for Coop Attacks.
Friendlist Trade works independently from distance anyways

3. Actually Player Sieges are very Rare.
Siege Equipment is costly and Attacking an City always means to fight as Underdog cause the City has an higher Population Limit as well as Walls and Defenses available.
Theres also an extended Noob Protection time making sure you wont be attacked before your actually ready for it.

4. You receive Attack Protection after PvP (and if I remember right also after Coop)
I once bought an 20 hour Attack Protection (Ingame Time only of course) for 40 Crowns which is several Quests worth of Crowns.
But so far didnt use it since just putting up a Trash Army and going to PvP myself gives me new PvP Protection and at the same time makes sure that I only use Units I especially Build for Fighting.
The Duration of Attack Duration is independent from Army size so even an small 5 Unit Army going for PvP grants full Protection already.

5. Its not something you can Ignore since you got alot of Repairs and Losses to Replace.
But its also not an real End of the World Thing.
Stuff will be damaged and Units will be Dead but everything can be replaced and repaired.
You neither lose Technology nor an full Building so the Progress is stalled for a while but not setback

6. Well currently Coop is limited to Quests and NPC Town Sieges. (further stuff planned)
But thats fine.
Actually you can go through the whole Game without doing a Single PvP.
And you dont really need to Invest money after Buying the Game.
Quests and NPC Major Town Sieges get you enough Premium Currency to complete anything and everything on that.
No need to catch up time either cause you can just play at your fancy.
Once your logged off your Ressource Income will continue but you wont be attackable or lose anything.
Even your Attack Protection will stop running out.

I got some experience so it might take you a bit longer.
But even with an newly startet City I had no trouble of getting about 3 times the Crowns needed to buy 2 Hour Attack Protection within the 2 Hours of my active one.
So your in no need to catch up on anything and also dont need to worry about Investments to the Game.



Tough I think I have told em several times that they should give some more Reasons to actually Buy Premium Currency...
Its one of the few Games which has an Dev team that is seriosly playing together and talking with the Users Ingame and in the Forum.
Which is an major reason for me to hope theyre Succesful in making Money as well :P

Hi11 and Sun already gave plenty explanation, I'll just toss in another little bit.

Whenever you get attacked by another player you get a choice:
  • accept the challenge and fight (and win crowns regardless of outcome)
  • decline and pay the attacker off (small sums based on how much the defending army was worth) but get no crowns
Regardless of how you choose to proceed you get 1 hour attack protection. And yeah, no offline attacks.

Umh, me and 2 of my friends bought the game yesterday, does it mean we're possibly not on the same server thus making us unable to play together?!

There is only one server at the moment and it hosts the whole world with every single player in it. So you will be able to chat and play together.

If you need any help starting out or run into any trouble don't hesitate to ask for help in the Help chat ingame, or contact any of the game mods either in the game or on the forum here. The New Player Forum is a good place to post as well, we're here to help.

This game has so much potential, I really hope you guys bring new content to the table. Sieging with friends and attacking random people without browsing for a skirmish would be awesome...would add more diplomacy to the game haha.

Yes I do recommend you get it, but my opinion would be biased. But We have launch a new patch just today to fix pvp. We have many new features and content incoming as well as another free expansion!
