A lot of mmos have world bosses that are super hard, and almost impossible to kill alone. Do you think Defiance will have any? and if it does do you think they will be world events on will have a spawn time in certain areas?

Yea, there are world bosses, world bosses are at the end of the major arkfalls. Also, there have been bosses during the coop maps that have been shown.

Isnt this boss part of a multistage arkfalls? If there are "world bosses" will they like reset every hour? Or will they spawn i everytime a group starts the event?

I was wondering though...on the live stream last Friday they would go from one arkfall straight to another one and it didn't seem to tough of a fight? I know they scale with how many ppl are in the area helping..but as a world boss it didn't seem to tough? Anybody know how they work? Are there always arkfalls in the world? Are they progressive as in start at one and once u do so many then it ends at the main arkfall

i honestly dont remember them fighting a world boss from the arkfall in the live stream! i saw the medium ones but not the big ginormous one they show in the teaser trailer or the live action trailer.

yes there will... major arkfalls end with a big boss, and certon things need to be completed before they show there ugly faces, in a time frame.

you are forgetting codes you get to unlock boxes... what is in the box i have no idea. i get a box from my pre-order.. I'm thinking rare weapons only come from boxes.. i have never seen a rare item pick up in live stream.. so yes i'll have a rare item and you will not in the beginning.

Here, http://www.twitch.tv/trionworlds/new Look through their videos.

Also if you want to look for more specific things http://en.defiance-wiki.com/wiki/Defiance_Wiki at the bottom of ever article for a weapon or co-op maps there is usually a link to one of their videos where said item is showed or mentioned or seen. I would use the wiki link to look for gameplay of the co-op maps.

I must be stupid, I still can't find recordings of live streaming gameplay there :/ The ones I did find where like interviews of people who were playing, but not just direct streaming footage.

What kind of drops this boss would have and every player will be able to get part of it?

Don't much care what he has or who he is...

If he's got codes the damn thing is going DOWN!

In twitch you click the videos tab and you can see older streams

I tried to cross the Golden Gate Bridge last night, and met this suker. It is unbeatable at the moment. It one shots you in your vehicle (no matter what you drive). You cant run underneath it as well. I tried so many times, and failed miserably. My bullets, rockets, grenades do no damage to it, and it also has shield. It's main weapon is the grenade launcher on its shoulder, so you can't hide, and it also has rocket pods which fire lock on rockets, so you can't run either...

You cannot beat the robot. It is not a boss, it isn't even a real enemy. It's just a piece of scenery that will instakill you and is invincible.

It gets destroyed as part of the storyline but you don't even get to fight against it. And from then on when you drive past it all you see is rubble instead of the robot, which is gone forever.

Hate to burst anybody's bubble, but the Golden Gate Bridge robot is not a world boss. It's there to keep you from accessing San Fran before the appropriate time in the story line.

There are no world bosses, only Arkfalls.

There is no uber loot, just the same stuff slightly modified by mods.

There is no unique content (currently).

Prepared to be bored until we get some halfway descent DLC.

How it worked in rift was that there was a timer and periodicly there would be major rifts (arkfalls) but large groups of players could force them by completing minor rifts(arkfalls). i.e. Majors happen when timer runs out or X number ofminors are completed.

True, but at least there's one to actually fight later in the story, even if it isn't a matter of defeating it so much as stalling it.

he's not a world boss. he's a gate that the story missions take you through.
