What is Medium.com?
“Medium is an open platform where readers find dynamic thinking, and where expert and undiscovered voices can share their writing on any topic.”
Various members of the DFK community have been using Medium as a way to publish articles about various game aspects, opinions and guides almost since the launch of DFK. It allows users to upload and share articles without the need for a website, making it very easy to commit information to. In fact, the DFK team themselves use it to post content from time to time.
The trouble with this is that articles are listed by author, and unless you know what you’re looking for, you might miss posts or information due to the library format of the website.
Fear not, because we’ve got you fam. Here are some links to some of the best authors of DFK content on Medium, so you don’t have to go looking for them:
The official Medium for the DFK team. Generally the information you’ll find here is a little more subjective and a little more informative than the info you’ll find in the Docs.
Samichpunch has been providing amazing articles and writeups since the dawn of DFK. His post-AMA write-ups are a cornerstone of the information available to the community and his guides are all well-written and exceptionally helpful, especially for new players/investors.
Mr Zipper’s article series “The Hero’s Hold” is a great way to stay up to date with all the latest developments and his are the most regular updates besides the AMA posts on Medium that are worth reading.
Most people in the DFK community will know Albus better for his Infographics – most of which I’ve included on the page Infographics. In fact, most of the additions on that page are his work. When he’s not providing amazing visual aids, he’s writing some pretty good advice for players, too.
So far Kekaden has only written one article (as of 29/04/22), but boy is it a good one. This is likely one of the most in-depth analysis of the Level 0 Profession Quests (specifically Fishing and Foraging) you’ll see and is a great demonstration of how far you can go to extract data from DFK. If you want to see some cool maths and data, check it out.
If you were blown away my Kekaden’s maths for the quests, just wait until you see the detail Mettez goes into for breaking down hero stats. There will be full guides to hero stats available on DFK Eggspert, but in the mean time, this is a great (6,000-word) read!
