I sent Llewis a couple whispers last night and even ran in front of him by the Crossroads waypoint (near Benefactor Valley) but got no acknowledgement. I guess CeeKay thought I was a clever spambot?  crybaby icon_lol I think we're each at the same level now (15) due to my marathoning obscenely late into the morning hours.

sorry I didn't notice any whispers  icon_redface  I think I just need to turn off general and new chat in the chat window because otherwise stuff flies by too quickly.

[edit]  now that I see your picture thread your character does look familiar.  around the time I was at the Crossroads I was hellbent on filling the last XP bubble to hit level 15 before I finally crawled into bed around 3:30.

Personally, with my character down the Soldier line, I've only put 2 points into Lightning. It still does damage, but doesn't suck the power away that tier 3 does.

yeah, if I had realized you had to change the icon everytime I would have noticed the amount of drain changing and not have spent the extra point.  WoW does spells the same way, upgrading them requires you to put the newer spell into the quickslot, but I forgot that  retard

And Carpet Bombing is very nice, but you need a relatively flat plain to use it on.

so that's why it wasn't working when I tried it out last night.  I just logged out and figured I'd check into it today.

And yes, quests are the way to gain experience. Either that or plant your ass in a Bane area and work on that 250% combat experience bonus.

I was doing that with the control points but after knocking out level 14 in a couple of hours with almost all quests the quest XP gets a big  thumbsup for me  icon_biggrin

well, despite my intentions on going to bed early tonight I ended up hitting level 15 tonight and going with the Ranger class (after cloning of course).  At 15 you get 6 skill points to spend, so I spent some on Carpet Bombing and Stealth Armor.  I did find out that if you upgrade an ability like Lightning it doesn't automatically change it in your quick slot, so all this time I had the 3rd level of lightning but was only using the first level  retard  needless to say I fixed that quickly.  unfortunately I had been assuming I was using th highest level of lightning available to me and didn't put alot of points into the stat that effects power, so now I only have 2 shots before I'm out  icon_frown

So far it seems the best way to get XP is the missions- I gained 2 levels tonight collecting Logos and doing missions like soloing the Donn Caverns and Crater Lake Research station.  It was a pretty productive evening all in all.

When companies make games like this, do the people creating the game actually do "homework", like playing through FO 1 & 2?  Not saying they had or had not originally, just curious if they do it again so the flavor is fresh in their mind.

Quote from: Blackjack on December 21, 2007, 06:49:34 PM

When I was in the Divide last night, I noticed a CP to the far SW of the map was Bane-occupied. I toyed with charging down there after it but it was a little too late to do my Charge of the Light Brigade. smile And I couldn't find a contact giving an "Assault tokens mission."

ah, yes, the Purgas Hospital.  That one's frequently occupied as it's really out of the way and there's no real reason to go there other than to activate the waypoint, and it's always a challenge to get back.  About 4 of us took back the Imperial Valley, but I think you'd need at least 10 or 15 level 12-15 characters to get back Purgas.  They love throwing out the Shield Drones there.

Wait, two kids had sex and the girl ended up pregnant?!?!? My stars! Famous or not, she's a young girl who made a choice that a lot of kids make. She's hardly special in that regard (as is the father). I sincerely hope for the best for both of them as raising that baby will require sacrifices (probably by her), money or not. Frankly, this is the most normal story to come from the Spears family in quite a while.

yeah, until she shaves her head and dyes her skin green it ain't a story.

I don't even notice the chat window anymore- I changed all the text colors to be more muted (except for private messages) and turned the background translucent, but before that yeah, there was alot of 'power level for 25 bucks an hour' spam.

61512  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Tabula Rasa beta on: December 21, 2007, 04:12:26 PM
well it looks like for the next few nights I'm going to be limited to playing between 11pm and 1am EST, so my progress towards level 15 is going to slow to a crawl.

One thing I learned last night is that if you log off at a control point make sure to do so staning someplace where you can do a quick exit if it happens to fall before you log back in.  I logged in last night to find the Imperial Valley CP had actually fallen into Bane hands, and seeing as I had logged off after turning in some defense tokens I was all the way in the back of the base and got whacked by the forty or so Bane troops that were in the place.  I got payback though by immediately going back and helping liberate it (unfortunately I was second to the CP so I didn't get to be the one to change it over, even after trying to get the remain Bane to shoot the guy doing it  icon_twisted).

As for the armo, I think I've only spent 4 points in either motorized or reflective so far.  I've pumped up the firearms skill to 5, got lightning to 3 and spent one or two points in other skills, but so far haven't needed to spend any more as Motorized only helps you move faster and I think Reflection only gives you a chance to send the damage back.  I do have a couple of nice pieces of Stealth armor that got dropped waiting for me to hit 15.
