Its def a good game..at the moment there are just hunbdreds of beta players running about and its hectic...but once it settles down I can see its going to kick arse

So far I have played witch elf, Disciple of Khaine,magus and squig herder.
All are very cool....I actually think Im going to love the squig herder alot...so ugly and so cute

I am SO on the fence about this game since being burned by AoC recently. Part of me is saying to save my money and the other part is saying get it and roll an Orc Tank!

The Order side is utter crap. I hate that because every server will be unbalanced towards Destruction.

Yeh understandable but beleive me this game is nothing like AOC at all.
I have my witch elf to level 7 now and I just cant get enough of the game....
I love the fact that you have PQ's (public quests) they are great...you run in and join a group of players .....the quests normally have 3 sages which involve as a group killing so many this etc.....and then the third stage is normally a boss like creature which you take down. Then the game does a roll and the top 10 players in the PQ get to choose a reward.
Its great
I have only paarticipated in one scenario (which is similar to a wow BG) and that was alot of fun..and you get XP in scenarios to

It really is a great game.

The only thing I havent been able to work out yet is the crafting....I learnt the talisman making skill (like enchanting) but I have no idea how to use it yet

Dev tells the truth. This game is not like AoC at all.

You get a item from most quests. The best thing is you get renown rewards for doing public quests and you can get good gear for PVP from them.

Yeh...its taken me awhile to work out the whole honour system but there is so much to take in...Im getting there slowly.
I went up in rank to Raider last night....hehe, Im pretty sure it was after I did my first scenario, so Id say it has something to do with that.

I like it that you can pick up broken gear, and have it repaired into some very useful gear.

The one thing I havent worked out yet is professions. I learnt the talisman profession, but I have no idea yet how to use it to craft.

dude on Abhorash server destruction has been getting their asses reemed in t1 scenarios. I got outhealed on my level 10 zealot(good gear) by a freaking level 2 runepriest, and I know what I'm doing. Every game I was in we got straight up raped, so I got pissed and I'll wait until headstart to play again.

quantity by no means equals quality.

Yeh..last night I did 3 scenarios and each time we got it handed to us by the order.
I got the impression there were more experienced players on the order side than our side in these scenarios.....most of us semeed to just be running about wondering what the hell to do

Im sure that will change.

Its funny...I have loved wow over the years but last night I went back to playing wow because the WAR servers were down for maintenence and my exact thoughts were that wow looked all cheesey and cartoon like in comparison to WAR.

The graphics are def dark and I cant speak for the order, because I am playing destruction, but the bad guys look...bad evil and nasty...and I love it!
The witch elf I am playing has tattoo's all over her body and gashes down her face...she wears barely any amour and just looks bad ass....but nowhere as bad ass as the orcs and the chosens that I have seen.

Yeh..if ya like your games gritty dark and nasty...youll love this
