Frequently Asked Questions
Crowfall is expected to be released in late 2020 or early 2021. Estimated projection from the community. No official release date.
While Crowfall is in Alpha and has a lot of balancing to be done, as of Patch 5.125 most classes and their specs have a role and are on the way towards good balancing.
As of Patch 5.125, the Alpha build of the game has plenty to experiment with and lots of fun PvP to be had with other players. But it is still a testing environment that is going to get wiped at Beta, and again at Launch.
Crowfall PvP is an action combat system where you have to aim every ability unlike WoW or other tab target MMOs where you can tab target and have abilites lock onto enemies.
Guild vs. Guild or "zerg vs. zerg" in Crowfall takes a level of coordination among the team to win the fight or the siege.
In Crowfall Throne Wars – you win or die!
Each campaign world ‘Throne War’ is unique; no two are ever the same. Players fight against time, the strategy and skill of their enemies, the depletion of critical resources and ultimately the destruction of the world. If you crave competition and consequence, join the battle fighting as an Eternal Crow, undying mercenary of the gods—for glory, wealth and power.
Players who enjoy online massively-multiplayer games, with the ability to build a deeply specialized character, uniquely suited to their playstyle, will face a win or lose proposition that gives Crowfall a level of intensity most MMO games are lacking. For those who are creators at heart there is a deep crafting system that offers depth to discover and the ability to build and rule your own trading empire.
You can find gear at a lower level and in a white vessel (starting character) at Wartribe camps ingame and from crafters in guilds or at vendors. You can farm the Chiefs, Kings, and Captains for higher RNG gear drops.
As your progress in the game, you'll be able to craft gear or get crafters to make you gear with specific attributes to your character's build.
In the current Alpha build 5.125, large sieges of up to 150 players are supported at between 20-50 FPS on medium-higher end machines. This is still the lower end of the optimization plans.
The main leaderboard for each Dreggs Campaign (PvP campaign) is the divine favor and conquest system. Combined they determine the guild victorious for each campaign.
Each campaign also has a leaderboard tracking each guild member's Kills, Deaths, Assists, and Crafting score. At the end of the Campaign the player with the most Kills and the player with the Most Assists are displayed in glory.
There is only Bosses to grind in PvE for gear and materials, and monsters and beasts to kill to get materials to make stronger vessels (characters). There is no plans to add dungeons or raiding to Crowfall, as it is a throne-war PvP simulator. There is a new player experience that has quests to lead you on your first levelling experience, but is not needed to be followed on any other characters unless you'd like the (small) rewards.
