well that didn't work out to well. lol

 

I'm having problems finding a definitive answer on pve vs pvp gameplay.

Will the game force me to go into PvP areas at some point to continue advancing or will it be like ESO where pvp is another completely different play area and style?

Will there be Pvp and PvE servers?

I am not a PvP player and like in the original SWG I like the taming and training pets thing. I guess can I completely advance all the way through the game and still acquire good gear and storylines w/o being forced into areas with gankers.

Been looking at getting a founders pack but not if I have to PvP.

 

Thak you ladies & gents,

Al

No. The endgame thus far is pve. Not even sure if there is pvp outside of the arena

Thanks Fog. Is there a specific server the guild will be on? I think I'm going to get the $90 pack. I like collecting pets and mounts lol.

So far theres just 1 server. With many channels ala Guild Wars 1. You can change channels at any time from the in game UI.

I can tell you on the guild hud, there is a castle, keep, and tower and has a timer next to it. I have to idea what that is for. ROI has been very quiet about PVP but so far in all the time Ive played (since early english alpha highest level to date was 35) is PvP is limited to the Arena that you unlock later in the game. There is also another Island like the Arena Island that Ive never unlocked travel to that Ii suspect is the RvR lake. Not sure when that unlocks. End game so far is mostly taking on world boss titans,10 man raid dungeons, and dungeons. We should know more soon.

Headstart Early Open Beta starts on June 29th for founders only. Then it launches into public open beta July 7th.

Hm, thatsounds a lot like Dragon's Prophet.  Their PVP area was the housing area (yea seriously, can you believe that?) but they'd planned to work that area as a GvG/RvR type of zone, but that never really worked out.  Game died anyway (well at least for NA, I think EU is still operating), so they had more problems than just that.
