Welcome to our 74th mmo podcast at mmoSmacktalk.com! Last week I had the opportunity to hook up with one of the local Darkfall Thugs for Life, Billy (“Bad Ass”) Bones. We had a lot of ground to cover, and I feel like we didn’t even skin the surface. So go ahead and love on this cast. Give feedback, and the next time we connect with Mr. Bones, perhaps he can address some of your immediate concerns. 😀 Without further eloquence, I present to you one order of god cast.

Game Discussion and Analysis:

  • Darkfall Online (DFO): open pvp, full loot, loads of asses to kick.
  • Mortal Online (MO): softcore DFO??? Good graphics, free for all pvp with an L2 style spin.
  • and many more…
  • Stray Bullet Games (No Name Yet): from the makers of Shadowbane, comes a mystery meat mmo. Will this be first person perspective, sandbox, loot, full loot? Nobody knows, YET, not even God.
  • (Aion): from the makers of L2, comes another L2 with upgraded graphics and flying? Not exactly sure what to make of this yet, once we have an idea we will cast on it. I do plan to have an Aion “buff” on future cast (actually have one lined up :D).

  1. Dude, WTF was up with that “Radio Edit”? I wanted to hear the 3rd rule? So far heard 25 mins on the way to work and loving it. Billy has a great and interesting voice that hypnotizes you, HEHEHE.

  2. “..alfars are broke and live in the ghetto..” ROFL Alfar ftw.

    Nice cast as always, also checked out the previous cast, good stuff.

    Nice to hear what to expect in later from someone who “knows” the later stages of DFO.

    +800k and a character in every starter town, thats business right there haha. Tormenting us by calling his stack of 800k low, damn you billy bones, damn you! Urinating on my parade of 70k -.-

    I like the apartments idea. In Asherons call they implemented this after some time, due to all of the housing being taken. Really nice, especially since the apartments were right next to eachother. You would occasionally get that random 1 on 1 with your neighbor, or you could just wait and jump him as he recalled in.

    Vein idea is good as well. If they did implement this they should limit it to iron nodes only, then base the type of rare ore and the amount of rare ore from the vein, on your mining skill. So if you just started the game and have a mining skill of 1, then it might say “you hit a selentine vein but you failed extracting it” or something.

    “Fuck it, ill just take it like a man” Epic hahaha

  3. Oh and for the sound of your voice, in the start it sounded a bit weird, deeper than usual but nothing that bothered me or anything. Since it started getting better in the start of the cast, so after the start you sounded pretty normal to me.

    Again, nice cast.


  4. I enjoyed the cast. The voices were straight to me and I look forward to your next cast. I’m not that pressed about the other MMORPG’s your casts have a nice mix of opinions and different out looks which keeps my attention.

  5. Destroyer on mobs works. The only problem is it doesn’t work on deathless mages for example. The mob HAS TO wear a staff. So it works on Malaut casters, Oathlieges, Wildtribe mages, etc.

    I also would like to know about your secret spawn. Send me a mail or pm. 😀

  6. @Ryan: That is what I am asking you on the 3rd thugs rule you edited it in the middle of Billy talking and said “Radio Edit”. I am about half way through the cast and loving it!! I think this is your best cast, other then the ones I have been on. HAHAHAHAHA. Billy it is very inspiring to see you lose that much weight, gratz man!!!!

  7. Awesome cast man. this was exactly what I needed yesterday. Perfect timing to cuz I was missing hearing your sweetness.

    Remember when U did that Spotlight Cast and Forumfall Cast? Do another one of those for a quicky. Theres been a ton of Spotlights and Forumfall Smacktalk lately. Also I wanna hear your opinion on the Darkfall 2010 Paragus interview.

    Awesome stuff

  8. Ryan: M&B Warband is in semi open beta now. If you own the original game you now got access to the beta.

  9. @Ryan: I just finished your cast. loved it my favorite yet. Billy Bones was a great guest!!!!! Can’t wait to listen the next cast, whenever you feel like kicking it out. I would like to know as well WTF anyone would be playing LOTRO as well.

  10. I really wanted to listen to Murdering One Another Podcast. However, the site is not laid out well and when I did finally find cast 4 and clicked on it to listen, only 1 minutes of it was there. Also, you need to have an itunes account to download it as well. :*(

  11. Hey, nice cast Billy. This is one guy in our alliance I haven’t gotten to know well, but I hear great things about. Though I do know his irl bud Martha Focker, who is one of the best dudes I know.

    Anyways, Ryan, it is Epoch who found the humans have an insane amount of iron nodes in their area. Give credit where credit is due.

    P.S. Whatup Billy? You aint got shit on me! lol. But ya, I passed 1mil gold a couple days ago. But I’m sure you got me beat on q5 mats, cuz you know Martha irl 😀

    Oh and Ryan, my enchanter hits 100 sometime today. 94 skill atm. She’s pretty close to being on deck with Billy’s crafter, lacking on the armorsmith mastery though. (Fuck that, we got karlek! FYI, karlek is the only guy in the game, NA or EU, to have 100 armorsmith mastery. I heard some guy on EU hit it recently, but I doubt it.)

  12. Here is the discussion link to this cast on the Darkfall forums:

    @H.Slayer: Thanks for the feedback on our voices. I appreciate that.

    @Newbie: Yeah, but you brought up a good point. It definitely helps me focus my sights on the relevant targets.

    @Beleg: Thanks! I’m definitely going to spotlight some spotlights soon… not to mention I still need to tackle that Paragus interview.

    @nizzie: Good info RE WARBAND! Now I need to unlazy myself, free up space on my hard drive and download it. Cause if you’re right about having purchased M&B (I bought it for like 10 bucks years ago), then I’d be remiss not to give it a go.

    @Yak: I’ll have to check into that Murdering One Another issue… it used to be different.

    @Apoc: Thanks for setting me straight on the iron nodes in human lands comment. So you have any idea how much you spent to reach 100 enchant? I thought you weren’t playing lately, so it’s good to read that you’re still active. I still need to try out HoN and cast about it with you (if you’re still up to it :D)

  13. It cost me a good 600k from 75-100 if I can remember correctly. So the total cost if you do the reverse math (using the numbers below) it comes well out over a million

    It was like:
    750 enchants from 25-50
    1500 enchants from 50-75
    3000 from 75-100

  14. @Billy: Thanks for the rough breakdown. Looking at the 750 enchants between 25-50 hurts my melon. I was suffering just to get my enchanting to 25 😀

  15. @apoc, alot of people have hit 100 armorsmith on EU server, and had it for a while.

    Get your info straight son or keel your source!


  16. @emo: Dude, even when I log in, I dont have permissions to view it. haha. Any idea what that’s about?

    @steven: Nice! What you playing lately?

  18. @Emo: Wow! What’s this world coming too when you see a resemblance in an image and you’re labeled a racist. Does a skinny white Mirdain not resemble, to some extent, a white waif? If you said that would you be called racist? So I see elephants in the clouds, am I a packadermist? Trust me, that hooch resembles the orc, either by intention or accident. And I think that anyone who knows me would attest to the fact that I am not a racist. DISCLAIMER: 😀 Of course, with all that said, I am completely unaware of the tone of the thread.

  19. @Steve: Thanks, man! Just read an email RE this from Yak too. I saw this on another blog the other day, which I would mention if I could recall… it’s by a guy named Beau Turkey (hope I got that right 😀 ), but when I went to the dfo forums, there was no mention of it… now I see it prominently highlighted. Thanks for keeping us abreast of what is best in life :)
