Great guide, you have my deepest thanks for it.

I have two questions:
1. If I team up with someone, can I harvest animals they kill?
2. Any good spots for grinding above lvl 45?

thanks

After all of the debate I've seen throughout the forums, I'm totally lost on what to do for my build. I know for a fact I want to be a Rifleman/Crafter, but I'm not sure if I should invest points into any of the mutations lines, power, strength, dodge, etc. This is what I have so far for my build. What I want do in Fallen Earth is to focus on PvE all the way up to level 55 along with PvP in the higher levels. Although I'll probably never do anything in Blood Sports considering how there's rarely anyone who competes in it. If someone does post a new build, could you please explain why it is set up the way it is or why the build I've planned on should be changed up? Thanks.

Send me a pm with the following info and I'll help you out:
1) Whats the main purpose of the build? Pve, pvp, crafting? A mix of any of them?
2) What's mandatory in the build? Aka does it have to be full crafting, rifle etc.
3) What sort of role do you want to play?

I'll explain everything and go over it with you so you understand what the build is and give you multiple options and all that. At the end of it you will understand more or less why the build is that build and possibly in the future be able to make a build thats strong on your own.


@Un4seen

1) They have to be looted before they can be harvested but i think yuo can either way as long as its looted.
2) Prob s3/deadfall/alpha.
Tiggs mad.

1) Yes, if the teamleader sets the loot to "Free" (by rightclicking the team window)

2) Citadel, a PVE town you can defend, craft and generally do anything. Or you can kill some of the chota scum near rothium ridge. Be aware of Vise, their Boss! Because he's no ordinary CHOTA, He's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered CHOTA you ever set eyes on! He's got a vicious streak a mile wide! He's a killer!

Suggestions For your Guide;

I'd like to see something mentioned about Progress (lvl25)/Stronghold (lvl35)/Citadel (lvl45). I notice your S3 map is pretty old, Stronghold doesn't show on the map at all. All the people I've had at the locations just kind of stumble in to them and go "oh my! is this?!" And as much as I enjoy keeping them maintained, I'm getting tired of typing the general information every goddamn day :P

I'll gladly write up a blurb for you to look over and modify as needed for Progress and Stronghold (I don't do citadel, plenty enough people supporting that already :P), if you'd like to include the information.


Grind spots I know of and have sent people to over and over and over again;

20-30 (Better for pistols/dual wield than rifles)
Coords; 6006127, 6116869
Nearby Town; Docours Court
Mobs; Mutant Hydra Weed (No real armor, doesn't move much, high spawn rate)
Drops; Nothing worth mentioning (harvests into mild toxins)
Requirements; None. I've taken lvl 5's here to exp when bored.
Note; When you hit 30, your on the edge of Quarantine so you can run in easily and do all the quest chains there. No real vendors to speak of though. The lvl 30 Biohazard weapons come from this area.

30-40
Coords; 5832552, 5093939 (Alternate camp, same mobs; 5644144, 5288819)
Nearby Town; Wasted Woods (Alt camp is by Office Park, be careful)
Mobs; CoGs (Moderately high respawn, very low armor rates)
Drops; bandages, metals, sometimes gears, cloth
Requirements; Uh... Dont run head long into 15 mobs an expect to live?

40-55
Coords; ??? (White Crow mark on the map south of LA)
Nearby Town; Los Alamos
Mobs; White Crow type dudes (outside the encampment wall)
Drops; standard humanoid drop table, Deadfall tier items
Requirements; Probably some first aid or a buddy with some heals, mobs are pretty spread out.
Notes; Its possible to level inside the wall with rifles as low as lvl 37, but it seems like a waste of time and ammo to go there below 45, personally.

Optional grind; Node-farm in Terminal Woods ASAP (I went there at 48), theres a few static node spawn points that will net you about 100 exp until you hit lvl 52 when it will start to taper off. I was getting 87 exp at lvl 54 per node. I gained 4.5 levels in one night by accident by farming one spot for a buddy so he could make dyes with what I was getting.


Waiting for the new Faction/PVP updates before I go posting any info about node locations, don't know if the areas I visit will be safe for PvErs any more until after the next major patch.

Questions I've heard come up almost every minute in help chat...

How do I get a horse? - Do the first few quests in/around the lifenet where you start.
Where is my horse? - It's the green blob on your map.
How do I tow my horse? - You can tow your horse at the gas stations
How do I feed my horse? - You can buy horsefeed from the fuel and feed merchant at the gas station
Where is the stable/gas station/garage closest to me?

Sector 1 Gas Stations
All the waypoints are listed on the link above, as is the image below.
Press alt+P to view/edit/create waypoints, the yellow X is the waypoint you have selected.

Great guide, read up on it while the game was downloading. Cannot comment more about the actual content and what not but I would make a suggestion for it.

Make the first post into a sort of Index for the rest of it with quick links to get to each section faster.

I wanted to go back to the Build templates, scrolled past it 3 times before I found it again lol

Thanks

Alright, so what is this alleged "Panic Button" skill to which you keep referring in your template summaries?

Also, I submit for your consideration, the Sonic Social Rifle Crafter: http://fallenearthpl...101010196010101
Any constructive input would be welcome. :)

Hi guys im pretty new too FE, but so far i just love it. :elephantdance:

My question is, is this Hybrid Crafter (pistols + Rifles+crafter ) build still "good" ?

Im lvl 17, and get close to the point where respec gets way too expansive, so a little tipp if this build is a good choice for later open pvp/pve (end game) would be nice :rolleyes:


Thanks in advance

greez.

Hey all.
I've been contacted a lot lately about this guide on other sites/facebook etc...
Note that I quit FE months ago due to game being unplayable for me (exaggerated in-game lag, players warping etc... even though this PC runs Skyrim on max settings + graph enhancing mods!!!).
DRLP should have quit altogether or at least most of them, as they reported a good portion of the community was insultive/immature/non-adult/frustrated etc and eventually they lost interest.
The guide might not be up to date and will not be updated by me or DRLP, but you are free to use my work for whatever you want.
I'm no copyright-crazy 12yo at all, might even make you some graphics if I have time.

Good game everyone!
Leader of DRLP.

Considering rifles have -Melee defense some even being -60, will this hurt the overall "tankyness" of the Assault build?

are the builds still viable? I am thinking of the assault or the hybrid build and just wanted to check to see if they are still workable.

great guide by the way, nearly all my questions answered and what wasn't answered in this guide were quickly answered by the rest of the community with a couple quick questions in general forums.

True. Additionally while this guide has tons of useful info in it I wouldn't recommend any of those builds.

Wandering for hours due to lack of info doesn't add any difficulty or interest in any way, it's just a major waste of time and a big annoyance.


Absolutely agreed. Had some kind of similar experience when I started playing Anarchy Online.
I am so happy I can avoide this now, with this great guide.
Keep up the good work !

I also need someone to review Melee weapons, as all my clanmates are gun users so we can't make a guide to melee.


Woah, I was already wondering where those went, sad thing, this was December and still no melee-user volunteer to sum up te pros and cons of the close combat weapons ?
Since I will heavily focus on melee, I might send you some thoughts about them later, if nobody else is quicker.
Only few spots left in this guide, so we should make it complete, right ? ;)

Also sad to read that most of the mutations and so on are quite underpowered right now - I will use them anyway, but I believe they should be in balance to other stuff, making them obsolete would be a bad design decision, they are like the salt in this soup . . . and quite cool.
Making cool stuff in a game rationally a bad decision to use APs for is like making ice cream with the taste of dog sh... you get what I mean.

Devs shouldn´t force people to either go for the win or go for the game mechanics they like, that´s what balacing is for.
Dude, I am totally for nerfing things that are OP, but making it the exact opposite is not really bringing "balance".

This is better than any melee guide you would have seen in this thread. Also when he comes up with rifle and pistol versions they will most likely be better as well.

Always glad to find a DRLP guide when I start playing a game.
As far as I can tell, the links on your build templates are down. Let me know if it's just me.

Edit:
Oct. 18, 2012
I'm assuming you guys don't check this thread very often.
