Wow, this game looks beautiful, just like WoW. If it plays as well then I might be sold for another MMO.

I'm just wondering, why isn't either company (Blizz and Mythic) suing the other one over the artwork already?

you would really have to see the game in person to get a feel for the graphics. There are just some really cool subtleties that makes it nice, like when my shaman runs his ears go back kind of like a cats. I know they are still patching in some animation stuff, and I think the major graphics patch is the next big one labeled 3.4, at least that's what I've read.

On a good machine with stuff set to high Warhammers graphics will blow WOWs out of the water, but that's to be expected from a game that is 4 years newer, plus some people do prefer the WOW art style.

They are currently working on some server/client stability issues that cropped up from a recent patch. I have been getting pretty regular CTDs when I'm engaged in heavy RVR, but we've been assured this is a priority issue from devs. They might have been fixed by now as far as I know. I haven't really had much time to play the last few days.

Yep all valid feedback

The game even with its bugs is still very fun

Nvnews readers wont be too happy with the lack of gfx options if it goes live like it is atm.

beta graphics are set to low settings to keep the download smaller. I think when open beta rolls around we have have more options for graphics settings.

My account has been bumped up to elder status so I'm getting to test some really cool stuff, but it carries an NDA so no screenshots or videos...sorry.

Pathing for the mobs is my biggest complaint...and something I am kinda happy with. When I hit a mob from a distance, some of them (usually lions I noticed) sit there for a moment, then rush me. Gives me time to hit them with a second spell before having to melee.

All in all a good game. I have played only healers, but I have played Empire, High Elf, and Dark Elf healers. I feel the High Elf healer is the most powerful of the three.

I never get a crash to desktop anymore. It happened last just before the recent beta round.

I am going to wait and see what you fellows have to say after a month or so of live.

I may try it and create a mangina b#tch elf. I hate that they are forcing stealth on them though. They are blood crazed berserkers, not thieves/rogues.

Decent witch elf art here-

Is that confirmed though?
I mean sure, there arent any tweakable settings atm, but have they SAID they are using low settings for now?
Itīd be awesome if that was the case, still, looks good enough to play as it is.
