    Default Unrealistic parts

    One of the unrealistic parts of alot of mmorpg's is how easy it is to heal a character. I see this in DF too. The amount of damage healed might be fine I guess, but it's the time it takes that is usually to fast.

    If, say, only the best portions and heal spells had the time effect that the low quality ones have then maybe we'd see more realistic behaviour in fights as well.
    You don't really care much about your hp if it's easy to restore.

    Do you play the game?

    Heal spells are aimed. You essentially have to stop, with the person that needs healing for 10-15 seconds to heal up. If you are in the middle of any sort of fighting this is way easier said then done.

    And are we really talking about realism in a game that uses magic, has dragons, and is virtual?

    Hmm, I understand what you're saying. I miss the old MMOs that had longish downtime, but I don't think it'd work too well in Darkfall.

    There is a game called Roma Victor, (Closing down, but RV2 is coming out) would be perfect for what you want IMO.

    Check it out.

    It used to have a 5min+ downtime after each death, but as skills went up, it's gotten smaller and smaller.

    Magic in this game is unrealistic.
