Pinned PSA - How to farm for DZ resources without engaging in PVP7 Likes/37 Replies/34952 ViewsSir_0v3rk1ll 132 posts
@haywardgg I have to agree on that 100%. In dz in TD1 when you kill someone it takes them time to go find you, if they ever do. Kind of like Dayz. You might not see them again. Map is big. This DZ in TD2 is garbage. Too small. You kill anyone and withing 2 minutes they are on you again, feeling like I accomplish nothing by killing you. That's why when I want to experience pvp I go play Planetside 2 or Squad.

Having just taken 2 level 19s into the dz to do a bit of new players to the game give them a taste of it i can guarantee they need a geared up experienced player there for protection. We ran into 5 different rogues within 30 minutes. Fortunately they were all solo rogues as anything above that and I'd have been in real trouble for keeping them both alive. You cant extract without rogues showing. Time of day used to matter, now it transfers you into a server with others regardless. Either go in geared up or dont bother, because around every corner is someone so desperate for pvp they will go rogue on guys who havent even made level 20 yet and think it's good play.

So, I was reading about the OP PvP build in this thread:
I was wondering if that build could be used as a defense against any rogues showing up while one is simply tying to farm DZ resources.

My Experience with the DZ is a lone rogue agent that runs away like a wuss and gets his full group of friends and then grows a spine to fight, when they know they will win.
In the end, PVP is boring, predictable and pointless in my opinion, all it shows is how lame these players are (the ones that only have a spine when they have friends to gang up on a solo player) and to be honest, i like the idea of the npc rogue agents, so it would be interesting if they added in an option for the DZ to be pve only or pve/pvp and the pve version will have 1-4 rogue agents depending on difficulty and i would love to do a pve version of the DZ knowing that i will not encounter pvp players who only care about winning, no matter if its a fight they know they will always win.

First off, Thanks alot for the guide.
Second, I thinks I can't have fun in DZ hahaha
I just came back from a long break and find something to play while waiting for next FFXIV Patch
I finish Manhut and level to 100 then getting some reward here and there then I thinks I should try DZ because I wanna build another build with some Named stuff in there
I got in, having fun fighting stuff just like normal PVE and the PVP kick in on Extraction.
2 Full PVP Rogue rush in to my Extraction right after I finish my Stuff and then kill me.
I Thinks ppl coming in DZ to kill noob anyway and my Gear that I drop mostly got Sabotage and Salvaged xD
At this moment I thought, why I can't Enjoy these DZ Content when I also paid for a full game.
The Concept of DZ is already obsolete right ? Since PVPer in DZ should be Max on everything already.
And what the point of Killing Noob and then salvage their gears ? (I Assume getting salvaged because what's the point on pickup useless loots right ?)
I don't mind Invading in DS because atleast I can fight back eventho Invader mostly got Advantage but I like that Odd.
Compare to DZ now, I don't thinks I can find a good Impression out of it hahaha.
I like the Zone tho, it's new to me since I don't go in DZ like AT ALL because I know this kind of stuff gonna happen.
Maybe Dev. can Make PVE DZ As Super Hardmode or something so PVE Player can enjoy that zone too
Oh and before PVPer come and [censored] on me, don't worry, atleast on me I farm gear just to have fun doing PVE Content, I don't bring my Stuff to fight you in DZ anyway so no worry about that XD
well, I just want to enjoy all the Content the game has to offer that is, Peace !

Haven’t played in while. Went back in the dark zone and it’s 90% of the same players. Still get the hate mail when I kill them or they kill me (I ruin pvp cos I killed them or don’t seeker mine as the damage is too high).
I would say they’re teenagers, but sadly having chatted to few of them they’re in their 30’s. Bless.
hope to see you in the dark zone soon. (I realised that invaded dark zones are less rogue infested. If you get killed a number of players tend to group together to take out the rogues which is good).

@XMdead also depends on your time frame and location. I'm west coast so if I wanna farm the dz with no rouges for a solid 3-4hrs. I'll go in around 1 am real world time. I'll come across others doing the same and then we all end up farming together. Bout 430amish is when you will see rouges start up looking to get a manhunt. That's if ur on d2 and just dont wanna deal with them. If they kill you gg them, if they take your stuff go back and hunt them down. I've meet a lot of rouges in the dz have truces with some and others it's kill on site(especially for the sweaty rouges with no respect) just depends on them.
But then again I do love me a good rouge fight.
