+1 - I'll be playing regardless, but I would like to hear what you guys think (good or bad)...BTW, what time do the live servers open tomorrow?

Well first off I did not play the Beta a whole lot, I wanted to be able to experience as much of the game new when it went live as I could.

But from the classes that I did try out in Beta, Demo & Necro, I did find that there were a few small changes, for the better imo. Things like DPS, how pets work, I could not find a pet control bar besides that little tiny one on the UI, now we have an actual tool bar for it.

Mob spawn points are different. When you came out of the main city gate and head up the volcano to right where you crossed that first bridge there was a spawn point there and past. That seems to be gone so you can continue to quests.

But the general feeling I have about the game is very good. But it’s nothing like starting areas in WoW with mobs you just go out and kill and simple quests. Because of the nature of the game you are mostly alone in the beginning lvl’s, with instanced quest areas. I like this so far as it allows me to play the game at my own pace.

This is not typical of other MMO where there is a mad rush at spawn areas to kill quest mobs.

I like it so far

FPS is 30-50 for my system (not my new rig, but my older QX7600, 8800GTX rig. I will install it on my new rig today or tomorrow), no stuttering or lag that I have felt anywhere. Game is very smooth, nice graphics etc.

I have 1 of each of the 3 casters, all lvl 10 so far and moving along at a nice pace.

Yeah I played the open beta but I didn't just enough to get a taste of each class.

Very interesting! I hated the pet bar but I loved the necro class. It will be my first toon.

Could you do me a favor and post a picture of the pet bar? I would great appreciate it.

Yeah, we will have to reach 20 to get the full taste of this game, which is good. Most MMOs are fun up till level 20. Then they crap out and become boring.

Good to know.

Let me ask you this. Did they change the Demo's power? In the open beta he could one shot most normal mobs. It seemed way over powered.

ok your question about the demonologist. Well the whole 1 shot thing you experianced during open beta was a product of being lower then level 10.

The Demo's DPS has been some what lowered it seems, not a lot and works well.

Necro has been buffed a bit, DOT's are great.

It's really hard for me to decided which one I like best atm. I also tried the other one, can't remember the name of it, that one is way different from any casters I have played, but very fun !

What happend when my Demo/Necro was able to call pets was the usual buttons for Attack, Follow etc appear on the tool bars on your right hand side of the screen. So it was simply a matter of moving the tool bar to where you like, rotate it etc. These buttons can be moved around just like any of the other buttons.

I have really gotten into the main quest line which I didn't even touch in Beta, it's pretty good actually and I am enjoying it a lot.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I'm glad they buffed up the dots a bit. They were fairly weak but not too bad.

I played the main quest line up to where you help that lady in her mansion. I really liked the quest line so I stopped playing the beta to wait for it on release. I didn't want the crappy performance ruining the game for me.

The performance is way way way way better. And its very very stable, and i didn't have one memory leak crash in 7 hours of playing today. never had to relog or reboot at all. and yes im playing in vista 32. Also that quest line has an amazing ending lol, so you were good to wait.

There is just a good feeling when you slice off on a Mobs head and watch it go flying

I canceled 2 preorders for this game on Friday, but after playing and hating GTA4(was going to buy it instead) ,being perma banned from WOW forums yesterday and AOC having an apparently VERY SMOOTH launch I'll probably pick it up this week.
