hey did your guild transfer to Mordheim when they cloned the full servers yesterday? I have a 14 shaman in need of a guild and I need some questing buddies.

Honestly from the beta the game seemed very fun...I'd like to give it a try but I don't want to play two MMORPGs at once, and I'm very much enjoying WoW at the moment.

Ok, so against my better judgement I bought this game. Orginally I was going to pass on another mmo but tbh I've learned just to play causualy. Anyways, I just didn't think from all the footage the game looked all that great and thought I was going to pass on this and wait for it to AOC on us(which i still say it will). So I load it in, update it(no start icons btw), start playing in noob land and well, it just sucked.

Saying that though, thats what I thought about wow after playing EQ2 first(bought them nearly the same time at release). But after shelving wow for a month or so I tried it agian and it grew on me. Then after maybe 6 months of playing both I never played eq2 again(although now i think eq2 is a better game, if not the best mmo)

I dunno, so far the lack of character creation/features and graphics alone are so shallow it just takes away from the game right from the beginning. Upon entering the newbie zone everyone looks identical, no aa or af(or i cant find it), bleh. Turd so far for me.

Forced aa and af, looks yummy now. Also started in a different zone and the zealot zone is actual cool looking. The dark elf zone was just plain and ugly.

yea elf land looks just bad. I really like the greenskin area, but I've spent the most time there so I haven't really gotten to experience much of chaos/empire pairings yet. I went back to Inevitable City last night for the first time since beta, and that place still amazes me, its just massive. I'm really excited for the huge fights we are gonna have in a few weeks when the masses hit t4 zones.

Yep, love the greenskin areas. Love the human areas too. I've never liked playing elves or the aesthetics that go along with them so those areas are always least appealing to me.

As for gameplay....

The gobbos just ooze personality and that CE face Mythic made for them just rocks! Having so much fun with my Squig Herder (hurting DPS issues and all) and I like that so many people quit the SH class by mid teens because it doesn't have an "I win" button. Just have to learn to be patient and pick your fights. I've been able to kill Bright Wizards and Swordmasters 2-3 levels higher than me out in the open areas 1v1.

Sooo many other classes I want to put time into and I can't stop playing this one.



It's nice to have another MMO that I can just tell I will be playing for quite some time. Considering the wifey loves it as well helps it's prospects for getting my $$ every month.

So I've been playing a Dark Elf sorcerer and it's pretty fun. It is far more fun than I had in the beta. I'm thinking I spent so much time leveling toons up to 10 that I was just bored stuck in the noob zones. I'm not sure how long I will play this game but I'm having fun right now.

BTW Bright Wizards are way over powered.

Im playing a sorceress and shes 16 now and they just keep getting better I have found that because of the HUGE range they have with thier spells (100ft for one of them) you can stand well back in battle and fire away.
Im in Chpt 8 now, Ellyrion and I have to say its so much nicer than the blighted isle and shadowlands, its bright and feels abit like "the sound of music running through the feilds" scene Although, Im having trouble finding a warcamp there.

Yes...bright wizards are OP....but it makes up for how hideous they look.
Personally...I really hate the white lions.
Actually, im not impressed with any of the order classes...buty the witch hunters!!! LOL they look like indianan jones!!!

Anyway...glad your having fun now

Does SLI not work in WAR? I've read that it doesn't, but not from a developer. Base on my experience it does not seem to be working correctly if at all.

The sourceress is basically a mage from WoW. Once I got rooting it was all over for the melee classes. I can take bright wizards down now. The worst are the dwarf priests. It takes 5 people to kill them. I've learned to not follow the group that is trying kill him. I let the dwarf run around trying to heal him self to stay alive while jumping like a tard. Mean while I kill all the people he was supposed to be healing. Dumb priest. LOL

I went to Inevitable City last night. I don't like it there at all. Meh, what ya gonna do. There is plenty of other places to be at.

I do think the problem with the beta was doing the same noob zones over made me bored.

i am going to give it a month or two before picking it up

kind of sick of picking up mmorpg when they first come out to have devs screw the games up and the community just ends up leaving

Im trying to build up a tactic against brightwizards and their rooting thing.
Basicly I charge them with my marauder, and they inevitably root me and move away, to buy some time there I usually apply a dot and a ability so they damage themselves when using magic for a few seconds.
If I get my first morale ability ready I can dodge all damage for a few secs, then its just to hit "charge" and run up to them and snare again, and start the DPS for real.
Been working sofar, dont have a root myself at lvl16.

Rooted when you´re alone is pretty frustrating, but often there are more players with you that can take their attention away, or burn them down as they´re nuking me.
