Default Re: Warhammer - Age of Reconing - WAR is coming!

Im not sure if anyone is having the same problem as me, but I am finding that in some parts of the dark elves area, especially at night, the colour scheme can get very dark, and therefore difficuly to see.
There isnt an option to change gamma in the settings and I dont have this problem with any other games, so I dont think its just me.

Other than that..the graphics are pretty sweet so far.

Dva, consider yourself lucky? I actually hate how WoW has no darkness, even at night its practicly daylight, all in the name of "We don't want to penalise those players whos play times are only at night".

That said.. my first and main character in everquest was an erudite (cleric). I had actually no previouse knowledge of everquest or its beta, nore did I know there was such thing as night vision. Let me tell you, on my first trip from qeynos to misty, nothing quite prepares you for traversing the karanas and the gorge in almost total darkness (We had a light source we cold carry, but the lighting engine was so farked that it rarly worked and many times I was running in total blackness). I dont think I hit 50 before kunark hit cause I remember not once but several times trying to make the boat trip in total darkness. it is quite a nightmare jumping from the rafts to the boat when you can't see either. I eventualy became a collecter of night vision items, from the night elf mask to the sleepers necklace to the evil erudite quest helm (I had to piss off my local city a little to get that little gem).

It's a game. It isn't supposed to be real. To my recollection, I have NEVER looted a body on my way to work. If you can't see in your game then it is a crap game. I used to play a game called Zork in the mid 80s. It was a text based game. Why not just play that if you like the challenge of not seeing while playing.

I found the best way to get around the things I didn't like about Warhammer, I stopped playing it.

Maybe your fantasy worlds are filled with sunlight and rainbows, but mine has more grittier parts.

Well i just pre-ordered WAR, with the pre-order i get Early Game Access & 2 In-Game Item Unlocks(i think the items are Rittenbach's Portable Camp - Rest your weary soul and heal your wounds between battles & Champion's Sapphire Band - Enhance your stats and cast "Touch of Frost," increasing your chance of doing additional elemental damage with each hit, Usable in PvE combat only.)

Is this game like othe MMO's with tanks & healers ect? what would a tank be on the Order or Destruction sides?

You havn't played doom1 or 2 much then have you. Except in those games they only shut the lights off after you know youve triggered the trap doors.
