Also, you like corpse runs? So if you failed Lord Vyemm in NToV, you'd prefer running everyone naked to him and *attempting* a CR? Have fun losing 10 levels.
Well, there we have risk versus reward. Screw up, pay the price. Don't screw up, reap the rewards. If you're going into a zone like ToV, you better have your stuff together. It was tough, it was never going to be anything other than that. But you earned the loot, and that made the taste of victory that much sweeter.

We never failed Lord Vyemm.

The "instant travel" you speak of is only available to two certain classes, not everyone was able to "instantly travel" all over the world. Heck Druids and Wizards had unique travel locations aswell and some locations didn't have any so while it was sort of in the game it wasn't as open as all current games have it. Oh and these travels weren't 100% safe since you could either be left behind during an evac and certain locations weren't safe.

The keys sucked to get but atleast they made you dedicated to it, and it was worth it. Heck It took me longer to get my VT and Emperor key then it did my VS (I got really lucky) you want to talk about a horrible camp, nothing beats RageFire (2+ weeks for me).

I've never heard of a guild beating Vyemm on their first try unless they got to him long after Velious. Afterlife, Fires of Heaven, no one. Anything is easy now in Velious. All the work has been done as far as learning strats and people have gear making NToV trivial.

Were you in Velious gear at the time? He can be killed by one group now of course.

Some zones were built where Summon Corpse was required. I suppose you guys don't like rez's either?

It's always had a Summer/Fall release date. No actual date by Sigil was ever given.

I can't wait to play it. We need to get on a server together. I know a bunch of WoW players who will jump ship and form a guild in Vanguard. We shall be known as Order of the Rosey Palm.

Yep! Life is good and I'm very buzzed

This is pretty cool for anyone who's got their eye on VG -- http://www.vanguardsoh.com/Newslette...ain/april.html

Warriors look sweet. For the first time ever, I think I'm gonna play one. And the Shaman class in March's newsletter (link at the bottom of the April page) look out of this world. I never play a healer but wow...the Shammy looks pure fun.

Don't know if anyone here has linked this story yet, but I thought it was a pretty decent preview:

I like the part about house building. Sounds like fun.
