‏Q from: @Uhaneole to @sledgehammer70
will be able to race change our main toons we started off as? Or have to start from scratch?

you can't play as a castithan without the DLC anyway, so obvious tweet is obvious, but it still doesn't say whether or not it'll be an additional fee to convert, OR, another thing someone brought up - whether or not it'll add new character slots, so we'll have enough for one of each gender and race

Because if I have to pay to change my main toons race, on top of the cash I paid for the DLC, I'd rather grind up another toon from scrach.

So from your list, if I do buy the $10 DLC, I still have to pay and additional charge to change my main toon to Castithan.

Oh well, time to grind up a new toon. :mad:

As much as I love Defiance, these constant bugs with weapons and this mediocre DLC is not going to help it. E3 opened a lot of eyes to whats REALLY out there and soon to be released. Trion really needs to pull a rabbit out of its *** during its conference for any type of hope. There still REALLY isn't an end game, an the loot just plain sucks. Only new thing I'm seeing is a race, truck, battle arena (Aka 4 friends in a room with mobs spawning on them).

Dunno what the Division is, but I was looking forward to TESO until they said it won't release until next spring due to it coming to the new consoles. Now I'm much less hyped about it unless I make it into the beta, that's a long wait.

Nice pics though, can't wait for the DLC!

They won't answer the question on the twitter feed.
Don't be surprised if what you get is ACCESS to the new race via new character and have to use BITS in the store where the character changes on your current high ego character will happen.

I highly doubt it will be free.

what are you basing the "mediocre dlc" on? there's virtually no info available, other than a point form list of a few things, and 2 bad screenshots?

The patch notes for the DLC are listed, what are YOU missing? You think the upcoming DLC is above average???

The DLC adds maybe a good 2 days of new gameplay. There is no competition in this game, there is NO reason to max ego other then perks, which need adjusting, there is NO reason to even try and be competitive because the rewards are the same if you win/lose/go to an arkfall and shoot 1 mob, 1 time. NO reason to hunt for that super legendary because with the odds of you finding a legendary from a lock box with decent stats, you'd literally be better off spending that money on lottery tickets.

Things the game DESPERATELY needs,
-Raids 8+
-New DIFFICULT/STRATEGIC instances
-PVP/PVE Weapon/Perks overhaul
-20+ Costumes/ End GAME COSTUMES - Whats the point of a new race if most peoples face is covered by some sh*t.
-BETTER LOOT AFFIXES/ADJUSTED LOOT AFFIXES, no more fire rate increases on 1 shot weapons, or mag increase on weapons it wont work on.

does no body watch their live stream on twitch on fridays??. they have discussed all of this many times over. your character that you use now. you will be able to switch it to a casti with no problems. meaning you will still have the same ego level, same perk/power setup, etc, if you have the dlc, it will not cost you to change race. as far as changing back, i havent heard anything about that, or if it will cost. a lot of the questions i have read on this thread alone. have been being answered since episode 2 of across the badlands, or their twitch live feed. some of you people need to do a little more searching then just on this forum. answers are all over the place.

he has a few good points, though he's making some pretty wild assumptions. better co-op or raids would be nice in the DLC, maybe there is one

pvp/pve/perk overhaul isn't something you'd get with a DLC, that's a core game adjustment, as is "loot affixes"(mods?)

pretty sure there are new costumes in the DLC anyway

I just can't grasp the concept of "End Game". It's something that I hated in WOW, and now I see people wanting it here. My first MMO was a wide open world that left it up to the players to create their own path/place in the game. There was no end game.
To me, to have an end, you need a start, a middle, and then the end. Which MMOs don't really have an end, as they are "open ended". Unlike a single player game like Borderlands.

People are too used to grinding and farming. An end-game doesn't really exist in the non-rpg trinity MMOs, look at planetside 2, or EVE online, not much in the way of an "end-game" there either. It would be nice to see more challenging co-ops and larger raid type events, but they don't have to be about getting phat lewt, but the bragging rights. Look at Core Legion and their plague siege accomplishment. It's things like that I want to see in this game

The problem is alot of people need an objective to keep them entranced in a MMO, they would soon lose interest if it was completely open ended.

[/B] Did you know if you own the Defiance DLC you will be able to swap your already existing character to a Castithan?

So I know you can swap your character to the Castithan. What I want to know is can you swap to the Castithan to see if you're going to like what your character will look like as a Castithan? Lets say you don't like what he/she looks like, can you swap back to your original character?

From the images so far, what I am seeing is more mediocre use to retextured objected.

Taking the turret off the Cerberus and pretending it is new content does not make it new content...and lightening the skin texture of a human model does not make it a new race.

Hiero Glyph
06-11-2013, 01:11 PM
So the raptor is the cerberus without turret... nice but not so original...

If you can use it to level your Cerberus rating then it will be very welcome even without a turret.

To me, to have an end, you need a start, a middle, and then the end. Which MMOs don't really have an end, as they are "open ended". Unlike a single player game like Borderlands.

End game is this "What are you playing for, why do you grind? Why do you collect keys?"

Grinding/Leveling -To get a higher ego for loot you get at the same ego as 1800? To end up paying triple the amount to mod something or add mod slots or to reset a weapons level? No thanks.

Keys- Why do you collect keys? To buy lock boxes at chances of obtaining unoptimized loot that for the most part has the wrong synergy on it? I just love getting a SAW with 10% damage bonus on the last shot. REALLY? Or a Legendary AR that gives 10% fire rate on a ally revive? Do mf'ers die that often for that to even be relevant??

Maybe if the same weapons had different damage stats (Actual Pinata Loot) High end vs Low End, or different accuracy/velocity stats on its base, THEN comes the bonuses, sure, it would be worth doing key runs and worth opening lock boxes and doing the grind. As is a Orange does the same damn damage as a white, wtf?

Its really not a hard concept to grasp "End Game". It doesn't always mean sh*t related to WOW which was the FIRST thing you went to, and what the main problem is with people and grasping what END GAME should be. Its something you work towards, takes time, and has great rewards at the end.

Defiance has NO reason to level past EGO 2000, you end up with 2 extra perk slots, THAT'S IT.

I get on, PVP, get off. No reason for me to level higher, no reason for me to search for legendaries, no reason REALLY for me to get keys, I just buy mod caches to sell them in the trade forum, which is a pia. Not even sure why I'm doing that as seeing there is nothing to spend script on.

Defiance is fun, don't get me wrong, I love the game, but I get bored 20-30 minutes after logging on. Looking at the future of this game, and what is TBR this year by other companies, Defiance NEEDS "END GAME" content if they want to stay in the green. Defiance needs something people "do" and actually have to put in work to get it done. Not driving to an ark fall shooting 1 thing and leaving, and getting the same reward as someone who was their from start to finish.

I guess the DLC just isn't as exciting to me as it seems to the rest of the community, some of us wanted change, not strings to grasp at to try and keep interest. I just don't see much content being added to something that badly needs it.

You ever tried searching dlc I'm search ? It's like trying to find a needle in a haystack and even that's faster then finding a release date for the dlc

For endgame, what I'd love to see in DLC is some kind of base. Make it like a co-op, where you select to travel to it so each person gets their own and you can buy upgrades and expand it, make it a group base or a Clan HQ so you can let your clanmates enter it. Give it storage areas, trophy rooms, message boards. Give it workrooms and forges where you can go to do modifications at reduced Salvage costs (As an upgrade of course).

As it is, there's no connection to the world. Its a shooter I hop on to kill stuff with friends now and then. I have a lot of fun doing it but even at level 1300 I really don't feel a need anymore to put real effort into the game and (when it will let me log on anyway) I rarely spend more than an hour a day on it.

I have read all the posts so far.

I believe the "end game" could be something like this: http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?85785-Suggestion-AI-Director-for-coop-maps


I have seen quite a few players remarking that coop maps are very static and predictable and get boring fast. I agree with them. The maps are generally well done in my opinion but there isn't any surprises left after the 20th run.

What I am suggesting is to have an AI director like left4dead.

Ok, AI director is a bit too fancy a name for this, which is simply that; if the players are doing a little too well and clearing a little too fast, their threat level gets high and the AI director will consider adding more mobs or even multiple mini bosses to the later part of the map dynamically.

Imagine the "oh sh!t" moments when the cocky players were just crushing all opposition and talking about how easy the map is when not one, but three tankers come out to play. And if they had to extract a few times, the threat level does down and the rest of the map goes back to easy mode.

Of course additional rewards might also be given for clearing the map at higher threat levels.

I believe this suggestion would greatly enhance the experience for all players of all skill levels at a fairly low development cost. So instead of making harder maps to cater only to the hardcore players and leave causal out in the cold, or making easy maps and leave the hardcore groups bored, we can all play the same map and your performance determines its differculty and the rewards.

The idea is that well played teams could achieve better rewards out of existing and future content. There is no need to make super hard content that only hardcore teams can do and leave 99% of the casuals out in the cold. Neither will anyone still feel challenged after the 5th time in the static coop maps that we have now.

Just so im clear, Having any type of content in game that actually requires some form of strategy or difficulty would leave 99% of the fan base in the cold???

Now of course I understand what your saying, but you over exaggerate the casual fan base. Either that or you recognize how simple the game is, and you would rather Trion cater to the simplistic players so they can continue to do Rolfpwn the game constantly for keys.

Maybe what your saying is its not fair to have any form of content that MAY only be done by (1%) and not the (99%) casual out of fear of them (1%) being able to get gear the (99%) casuals may not be able to get.

Im just asking!

If you actually read my proposal, you will understand it caters to every player of every skill level.

Not like the current maps where even the causal players will get bored after the 20th time.

And not, as some would prefer, literally only beatable by a team consisting of the world's top 1% players after squad training for 3 months.

With the over abundance of gear like items of all colors, how can anyone claim to do anything in this game that anyone else cant do?

(im agreeing with you)

yes, maybe I should read your proposal, ill get back to ya!

Edit: I thought your proposal was more than what was quoted, and yes I found it very much a viable endgame, not the best form of it, but great for this simple game.

Defiance Original Twitter Post:
We know you have been waiting for more DLC details. Stay tuned for first look coverage coming out of E3 #Defiance

Edit 19.20 CEST: Defiance Twitter Offical:
Did you know if you own the Defiance DLC you will be able to swap your already existing character to a Castithan?


Enjoy!

The Cast female looks far better than the males at this point since males should be far thinner then what was posted images of them. The Raptor looks like a modified gun truck we have been using but least it looks open thus we can see all our chars riding it. Also to just point out it looks like the version Nolan and Irisa was riding at the end of the Defiance game intro quest series.
Trion allowing DLC to change race for free is awesome and making the purchase FAR more value le because if it's anything like Blizzard that was gonna be costly. Thank you Trion for rewarding those who did buy the dlc =)

They won't answer the question on the twitter feed.
Don't be surprised if what you get is ACCESS to the new race via new character and have to use BITS in the store where the character changes on your current high ego character will happen.

I highly doubt it will be free. If you bought the pass it does someone at the beginning of the thread already stated that much.

So from your list, if I do buy the $10 DLC, I still have to pay and additional charge to change my main toon to Castithan.

Oh well, time to grind up a new toon. :mad:
All we know for the moment is that race changes can be bought in the store. What we don't know if if along with the DLC we'll get ONE free change. I can see it being either way. I already have Lady MacDeath created on PC-EU waiting to be changed. Sorry folks, I locked in that name on 2 April.

Just went to one of the links posted on page 10 last comment and came across this.


Later this year, extra content for Defiance hits the boards with a new playable race, a new Volge siege mode, species changing opportunities, and three new Monolith Arkfall events.


Anyone else excited? We know there will be a minor and major so what is the third?

Well that`s a bummer:S When i picked something up on google about charge blades, new race(Castithan) Raptor etc i was really excited. Cause i really enjoy the game. But i do think that a DLC like the one that`s coming was really neccesary. We need a bigger world to explore. So yeah dissapointed that we will have to wait at least another month.
