September 18th release date. Pre-order now.

I know of at least 3 or 4 of my friends will be signing up. If anyone is signing up solo, perhaps a contingent of us can sign up on the same server?

Not I. Going to give it a few months and see what the general consensus is. Age of Conan was supposed to give WoW a run for its money because it's designed around PvP. However, the PvP system is completely broken and most of the people are pissed off because of it. There's absolutely no balance to it and there are useless gems and stats.

I want to see if Warhammer is any different. Plus, their UI is a straight-up WoW rip-off.

I like the idea of RvR and collision detection (with monsters). It seems alot like WoW but small differences. I'm going to give it a try and if I don't like it i'll probably come back for WoTLK.

It should do fine if it copies the DAOC formula.. To which WoW copied some stuff from...


Honestly I just want wow to ****ing have a different rule set for BG's and arena's and quit ****ing with my pve stats...

I have to ****ing gem for -hit in expansion on my rogue.. WTF I already have to have 380hit rating to be effective as is, now they are ****ing with my gems in the expansion.. And you know why?? So ****ing druids and have a better gear selection..

I'm interested.

I don't have ton of time to devote to it, like I used to with WoW... but I'm interested.

I eventually just burnt out on WoW. I don't want to play enough to raid any more (I already have one job), and there's only so much you can do solo.

From what i understand WAR is mostly a PVP game. So you wouldnt need tons of time invested to do anything. I am going to go out on a limb here and say leveling will be fairly easy.

I need to read up on my guild website about what they think about WAR. I wont get it for the simple fact it has EA on the box. heh

Saulbadguy
08-19-2008, 11:10 AM
Ok, after playing for a few days, my initial thoughts -

1. Graphics. Meh. I thought they could do better, but i've only been in one zone thus far. The models are less cartoony than WoW's but not very detailed.

2. Public quests are an awesome concept. All you have to do is be in the area for the quest, and it resets after it's done in a couple minutes. You do not have to be a party. You gain influence points (kind of like rep) and XP for participating, and you have the chance to win a reward.

3. When you accept a quest, a red circle appears on the map telling you the general area in which you need to travel to to complete the quest. Very helpful.

4. Dual targeting - you can have a friendly target and a hostile target targeted at the same time. Helpful spells will help the friendly, hostile will attack the hostile.

5. Leveling is moderately fast as there is very little downtime. Zones are packed in tight, and you don't have mana, you have action points, which regen very quickly out of combat, as does health. Max level is 40, you get a mount at level 20.

I have not tried any PVP or RvR stuff yet, I'll report on that later. I've only done PvEing.

Saulbadguy
08-19-2008, 11:20 AM
I've been reading the graphics won't be as good until release because they couldn't pack the high res textures in the download package. Makes sense.

Also, I forgot to mention the Tome of Knowledge. It's a log that records nearly everything you do as far as quests, killing mobs, advancing the story line, etc. You also have achievements to keep you busy, such as killing 100 of a type of mob, or clicking yourself 100 times (lol).

The NDA should be lifted today for most beta testers.

You'll see a lot more about it soon.

I enjoy it and, if you got into DAoC, you'll dig this. PvP in WoW is practically pointless save for some Arena matches from time to time...this is such a nice change of pace.

The way I see it in visual MMORPG's.

EQ (Classic era) = Perfection
DaoC = New refreshing idea's, not as good as EQ.
SWG = New Idea's, failed Game.
WoW = Shit on a stick idea, but great marketing by blizzard to keep the game populated. This in turn was most peoples "First MMO" so they will grasp to it as the "pinnacle". 3 races.... along with very few classes..., are you kidding me? Are there any unique characters in this game?
Vanguard = Awesome potential at first, but the Sigil fiasco ruined the project; epic fail.
Age of Conan = Fun game doing the newbie area's and surrounding midlevel dungeon crawls. Not much for challenge, and end game was non-existant. (see Vanguard).
Warhammer = The next epic fail. WoW supporters will just fall back to WoW, and EQ lovers will just keep complaining that nothing compares.

There are many more MMO's not worth mentioning...



Sorry, but I'm just going to await the www.eqclassic.org project.

They won't release any dates, it's in beta 1.

They update the webpage often.


Thanks for that UO link Saulbadguy.

I'm going to wait for the online reviews after its released as well.

An FYI for anyone that likes these types of games - give the free trial of Dungeons & Dragons Online a test run. I've been playing it for 2 years and it's kept my interest.

Your characters are highly customizable, if you like to tweek everything down to the last detail this works great.

All quests are instanced so no one except who you invite to your party can interact in that instance.

The player base is almost exclusively age 30+ and overall very mature

I've never played D&D in my life before the video game so that's not a pre-requisite but if you have you'll be ahead of the curve.

If you do join go on Ghallanda server and send me a PM, I'll be able to make life easier for you.

http://www.ddo.com/

But yeah, something to try till Warhammer makes its debut and you just might like it.

I feel like I should be watching my back for a wedgie.

Hey Otter how much $$$ is D&D running per month?

Otter
09-09-2008, 02:25 PM
Hey Otter how much $$$ is D&D running per month?

It's $14.99 a month.

I justify it by knowing I'd spend that in an hour by going out to the bars or by waiting till a movie I want to see comes out on Netflix. A huge mod is due in December as well so right now is a really good time to level up a character before all anyone is playing is high level content.

It's a very group intense game, almost no solo activity.

I did not know that.. That is really dumb.. They are not going to be able to compete with WOW, might as well take your time and make the best game you can and slowly chip away at WOW's customer base..

Because if the game comes out flawed it will sink..

It's a PvP game. If that's not your thing, then you'll hate WAR. It's PvP done right IMHO.

WoW's PvP is a joke and tacked on. WoW does a great job with PvE (dumbed down as it may be) and the raiding grind if you're into that (I actually enjoyed WoW raiding and like the direction they are going with it - trimming down the rosters and making it easier for smaller guilds to progress).

Anyway...WAR will do well with the PvPers from WoW who are tired of the arena grind (meh - got old) and the PvP servers where world PvP really ended up being a gank-fest. WAR is team-based PvP like you saw in DAoC (which was a horrible PvE game but great for the frontier battles). WAR has some decent PvE and a few dungeons to crawl but, if that is your main objective for your MMO, you'll be sadly disappointed. It's fun (for me) but I don't think many will get into it as it lacks the broad appeal that WoW has. I do think, however, that many of you who think you do not enjoy PvP may like the RvR in WAR. It's not what you think it is if you never played DAoC. It's not like WoW or EQ or any other game that made a futile attempt to add PvP into the mix with classes that were balanced for PvE/raiding.

That's just my 2 cents.

Seems like there are some haters here that are clumping all MMOs into one pile when that's not entirely fair. WoW may be going for the broader scope but those who enjoy PvP and realize its shortcomings in most other games will find a nice home in WAR.

Take care.

(btw - RvR is more even-leveled/geared team-based PvP battles - think team fortress/MMO hybrid)

I think it has worked out well, there is already a ton of content...Of course I have not progressed even to Tier 2 yet but man is it fun. RvR and Public Quests really make this game a blast.

It's both PvP and PvE. There are plenty of quests to keep you busy, plus there are public quests in which you can participate with players in finishing.

The PvP isn't forced and stupid like WoW is, and rarely do you fight 1 on 1. It is team based.

now imagine everyone beating his ass all at once.

now imagine if that raiders fan brought a bunch of his friends with him

mass chaos ensues..at times it could be one on one, five on one, 20 on 10 etc etc

lots of options...

you can do PVE fulltime and still be in queue for RVR 50% of the time...thhat way you get raid exp for gear etc

I'd have to fall underneath the whole Age Of Conan attempters league. That game, although had alot of pluses, just didn't even keep me interested long enough to get past 40.

I found the most efficient way to level up as a Bright Wizard is PvP scenario's in your own group. If I can somehow get in a decent rotation with some non retarded folks, I can get 1500-2000 RP and over 20,000 XP per scenario run.

Not as many kills, but since you aren't sharing the RP with an entire group, you get more RP. I don't get heals, but healers really don't concentrate on magic DPS anyway.

I just throw tons of DoT's out there and watch the RP flow out of my head.

BTW, do you know if both of those new classes are tanks? I think one is Empire and one is Dark Elf.

That looks like a fun class. I started playing with all destruction (including a marauder), but I find there are more options that I enjoy on Order.

I hope some of the order melee DPS get some love in the big patch coming up. Marauder and Witch Elf > anything order's got.

Yeah... that's the main pop on my server as well. I play destro... and the main complaint is that some (mainly IB's) don't even try to fight... they just use knock back to send people into the lava.

I've yet to try it out myself, though.

Definitely. I think every class does knockback. Often, I see zealots come running in kamakaze style to knock folks into the lava. I personally save my morale knockbacks for top ranked (over 30) tanks or healers.

I just started playing and have a witch hunter on azazel and various destruction toons on sylvania.

I never thought I'd care for the pvp aspect as I've never been a pvp type player in any other game. It's quite fun though..... provided you get into a group with people that have a bit of common sense. I'm still under 10 on all the characters though so I'm hopeful that will improve as I level up.

ya my mistake was that I kept making new characters, but now I'm sticking with my Sorceress and got up to lvl 17

In all honesty, it doesn't matter if you have a shit ton of characters right now. With the patches and class changes that are sure to come, your main character may be nerfed. I'm not taking anything over 30 until patch 1.1 gets worn in.

I played a disciple of khaine to rank 9 last night. Lots of fun. I don't think I've ever played another class quite like it.

I thought about rolling a Warrior Priest because I heard they are going to rock out after 1.0.5 but I've already got 4 characters I'm working on. I guess they are the only hybrid melee-healer class on the order side. Archmage and Shaman being range-healer hybrid, and of course zealot and rune priest are pure healers.

One thing I can tell you is that I HATE trying to kill good DoK's with all of my characters except the BW, however I think their survivability goes down a bit in tier four.

As far as the patch release date - I heard the time period and subsequently forgot!

My order characters are all your base are belong to us on the Dark Crag server.

I'd roll a very casual character on a common server if there is enough interest on chiefsplanet. We could probably make a well rounded party if we planned it.

Big patch today.

I received the reward to play one of the new careers early, but I don't think I am rolling one at the moment.

A lot of the bugs that irritated me are now "fixed." I hated the morale lag, especially on instant heals.
