Skill Based Combat
First Person Combat
Rise of Agon breaks the mold of typical MMOs by distancing itself from tab-targeting and auto-homing attacks. Engage in a new level of fast-paced tactical combat. Lead your target from a distance in a first-person view or have your sword crash down on your enemy in a third-person view. Where your actions can help or hurt your chances of victory, master the skills and spells at your disposal to ensure you do not heal your enemy or damage your allies.
Skill Based Combat
Risk vs Reward
Every experience and interaction players must apply one of the founding principles of Darkfall - Risk vs Reward. No place in the world of Agon is safe, as players who fall victim to other characters or monsters leave behind their tombstone. Within these graves hold all of the armor, weapons and valuables held by the player at time of death that are free for anyone to gather. This full loot system forces players to objectively gauge every encounter on whether the risk is worth taking for valuable rewards. Be warned, if it’s not in your bank, it’s not safe.
Player Driven Economy
Crafters and Trade
Gatherers, crafters, enchanters and traders are the fuel that drives the economy, providing an invaluable service across Agon. Make a name for yourself by mastering and honing your skills in crafting, alchemy, mount taming, shipbuilding and even the construction of cities! In this sandbox MMO, every weapon and piece of armor is yours to create. Control the price of goods on the market, develop trade routes across the realm, or become your allies’ most valuable crafter.
Player Driven Economy
In Rise of Agon, solo play will only get you so far; therefore, it’s essential to form powerful alliances, join a guild and expand your territory. Each guild has the ability to claim a player city in the world of Agon. These player cities can be profitable depending on the amount of luxury resources available, or they can be in a strategic location that allows your allies to move in on enemy cities with powerful forces. Every player city is different in terms of how well-fortified it is due to geographical location, and what buildings you can make in them. Choose where to build your kingdom wisely, so you and your allies may profit from the many riches available around the different lands, and so you can dominate the massive world of Agon.
