1001  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 28, 2005, 12:20:06 PM
5 eh? small groups...

Ok, got level 17 last night.  Drop herbalism for my character and started skinning.  Got a few questions....  :lol:    Cool

I have tapped out the quests in the silverpine area, except for a few.
These few are simply too tough for us.   One is to go to a town south of the sepulchure, but the town gate is guarded by a Elite mob, which slapped us around a few times.  (We had no chance)...  I have a few quests, all are labeled "elite" and one is labeled "dungeon" (i think dungeon is in ogrimm), and looks like the wife and I cannot handle them.  That instance we were attacked by multiple level 19 mobs when we zoned in, so we cannot go there...

So, do I need to go somewhere else and quest until I get more levels, then come back for these "elite" quests??  Any suggestions on where to go since apparantley I cant go further here till I get a few levels and a full group.

Also, found a tank last night, level 16.   Problem is, he didnt seem to hold aggro at all.   What level do tanks get taunt?   I figure either he is really a newbie, or tanks dont have taunts at level 16.  He wasnt a very aggrssive puller either, so maybe just a new guy.  /shrug    I do not have a problem if that is the case, I can hint around and make him better.  (I am kind of a stickler on warriors/aggro/pulling after playing tanks in other games)


Also, mining...  I got a ability called smelting or something.  Think it turns ore into bars or some such.    Do I need to smelt stuff into bars before I sell them at the AH, or why not just sell them as raws?  Or do tradeskillers need the stuff made into bars first before they can use them?

I guess quests led me to silverpine, and since the quests I got left in silverpine I cannot finish, I am not sure where to go from here.  I love dungeons btw.   What low level instances/dungeons should I be looking at now or in the near future?  (level 17)

Also, is their another area I should go and start questing in, since silverpines/sepulchure is tapped (for now) and I dont see a quest leading me anywhere else?

Also, when I log into the wow forums, in the right hand corner it says anonymous and gateway is wow..

If I try to post it tells me "restriced forum".  any Idea where I am going wrong there?

Server didnt come back up last night, hopefully it will tonight.

Ill try the chat thing.   But, it doesnt bug me all that much, since the chat window sort of "fades out"...  plus, since I do not know anyone on the server, I dont get any tells...

Also, I am one of those peeps that are usually concentrating on the game so much, I get accused of being "stuck up" and such sometimes because I miss peoples tells...   Specially if I am tanking, ugh....   My attention window is short or something.   I miss alot of tells and such if I am busy playing...   If I am not fighting, I am pulling, hah..   But usally those that know me well forgive the shortcoming of my chat thing, heh

Wife can of course carry on 3 conversations at once and still play though, ugh...   She usually ends up knowing half the dern server in no time, lol

Course, I "chicken peck" type  and she does a zillion words per minute...

Anyways, I am sure population will spread out, and I think most the players are from other servers that have brought their guilds, etc here to restart...  /shrug...   I am going to do my best to hold back my power gameing tendencies  this time and smell the roses a bit...

But, I am gonna hafta find me a good tank so I can start doing instances...    Whats maximum size for a group?
1003  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 26, 2005, 09:18:04 PM
well, when choosing my server the server status thing listed it as low population.  We made characters and played awhile.  I went to the websight and seen it came up on the 21st.  So new server.  Then, that night, I got the que... heh..

Tons of people running around, reminds me of eq1.  I thought about changing servers again.  But, was  kinda nice after eq2, which seems pretty lonely sometimes.  Course, alot of dewds, trash talk in ooc, giving away spoilers wether you wanted them or not on the harry potter books, etc. and even got camp stolen on a named and my wife cussed the guy out, hah...

Fun fun...   slywink  So we decided we liked it and stayed lol
1004  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 26, 2005, 09:07:40 PM
I do wish the game would come up though, hah.
1005  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 26, 2005, 08:55:09 PM
aye well, not in any rush to be raiding.  We are having fun as it is now, and am in no rush for the raiding scene myself.  slywink
1006  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 26, 2005, 06:53:29 PM
Raid to me is killing the meanest mobs in the game using multiple groups.  Instances, rare spawns in general areas, or whatever.  Not quite sure how they happen in wow.  In eq2 we have contested spawns that spawn in various zones, as well as instanced raids.

In eq1 we could take everything but the kitchen sink till they capped it at like 72.

EQ2 has 24 man limit on all epic encounters.  

I guess wow has a 40 man limit?
1007  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 26, 2005, 06:30:16 PM
Toe.   A fellow previous erudine arcanium man, heh.  Still playing the dwarves I see.

Ok, We got the accounts set up.  On the moonrunner server, its a new server.  It was listed as normal and low population, but I think its off.  ITs a new server, and I have found out what a que is over the weekend.
99 people in the que, but it didnt take that long.

I made a undead mage, the wife a undead shadow priest. I am a miner/herbalist, she is a herbalist/alchemist.  We are both level 16 and having a blast.  Walked into one instance down there in the silver woods (or whatever its called, and got smoked by some level 19 mobs, hah)

Anyways, having fun.  And yea, I see the diablo thing now with the rejuv potions and such.


Also, I made a tauren warrior "level 8" and the wife a tauren druid as back up characters heh.   Now your really making me want to break out the warrior hard, ugh ugh.  Wish I could play them all, those hunters shooting the rifles look like they could be fun too.   So many games, so little time...  slywink

I like the warrior and the mage, heh.  Having fun with both...  Just now figuring out the auction thing.

Guardians at raid time are pretty redundent on eq2.   Nice see the stance thing to let the masses go.
Is their a number of people raid limit on this game?

Anyways, having a blast so far.  Beware the undead lich and his dark, rotting wife.  hah!
1008  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 22, 2005, 08:27:59 PM
Queues sound like they would suck.  Never seen a game with queues before.   Dont think I would like that much.

Yea, I know what warriors do, and I am pretty good at it.  slywink

Tell me this though, in raids at the end game, is there one main tank, and the rest of the warriors pretty much useless/redundent?  Or are raids different in this one  somehow?

Yea, if we went priest and mage I would have to make a tank buddy down the line somewhere...  But, usally end up with alot of friends on these types of games..  I do not like soloing so much, and prefer good balanced group play..
  /shrug
1009  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / xbox... Best games in last 6 months? on: July 22, 2005, 08:19:24 PM

I may pick up the lego star wars for him too then, if its going to drop to 20 bucks.  Looks like it got good reviews...
1010  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 22, 2005, 08:08:19 PM
Quote from: "Blackadar"


As for builds, do some basic research, but don't knock yourself out.  If your wife is a priest, she needs to go Shadow for the first 58 levels.  Trust me.  If you're a warrior, go Fury/Arms.  If you're a mage, go Fire.  I'd suggest the warrior over the mage, but it's your call.

Respec later towards the endgame - it'll cost a small amount of money but it will be well worth it.  In the beginning you just want to be damage dealers.


reason you suggest warrior over mage is the duoability?  Or need in the endgame for raiding?  Only reason I was thinking mage is for a change of pace.  Might be fun sitting back, hitting the assist key and blasting, rather then trying to run groups (and raids), pulling, taunting, etc.
I love tanking, heh, jsut been doing it awhile now..  But, if warriors are more needed at the endgame or something, could go with it...

Yea, I was reading up on some of the build crap, and, hard to take it all in really...  but , I seen that you could respec for a nominal fee so figured I wouldnt worry about it too much till I get some time in the game..
1011  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 22, 2005, 08:02:23 PM
Got a queue?  Whats that mean?   I hope that doesnt mean what I think it might mean, which is, you have to sit and wait for someone to log out before you can log in?   Never heard of a situation like that before.  Definatley dont want a server with a queue if thats what that means...

So look for a low-med population server and just go with it eh?
Whipserwind fit that description?
1012  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / EQ2 releases 12th live update on: July 22, 2005, 07:35:10 PM
I do not like the buying and selling of items either.   And, I prefer a company that does not condone it, and tries to stop it in anyway they can.
1013  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 22, 2005, 06:44:27 PM
Any idea what the newest non pvp server is?

Also, are they geographically oriented in anyway?  East servers, west servers, european servers, chinese server?  Or are they all one big happy family?
1014  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 22, 2005, 06:39:16 PM
ahhh, maybe undead priest and undead mage...  be in the same place.  starting in same place dont really matter though.., we both are very experienced in these games, and in it for the long haul...   Id say we be level 10 by tommorow, heh...


Thanks for the info, ill try and find some info on these trait builds...

And, think I may not go with the pvp server...

thanks for the help.
1015  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 22, 2005, 06:18:28 PM
aye.  I was a necro in eq1...

Warlock is the most DPS class in eq2.  thats why I mentioned them.  I think what I am looking for here is a mage. (like eq1 wizard or eq2 warlock)

My wife will almost assuredly be a priest. (she likes healing alot)  Not sure if she should go orc or troll however.

I will be either a warrior (tauren or orc, not sure which is better) or a undead mage.   I am leaning toward mage jsut cause it would be something different after being a tank for 8 months.  On the other hand, warrior/priest bound to be a good combo...  shrug..

Anyways, the pvp sounds interesting, and something I would like to do.  BUT....   One thing that worries me, is, since I am a evil side...   And in most games like this, the good side outnumbers the evils by at least 2 to 1...

Will going pvp just be a pain in my arse instead of being fun? IE> cant adventure due to tons of goodies kickin our arse everytime we go adventure.

HRM, HRMMM..  guess there is one way to find out, heh    

anyways, is there a section on the main websight discussing these traits you mentioned earlier?   I want to make sure we do our guys right, and would like to read up on them a bit before I get home and isntall it.
1016  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / xbox... Best games in last 6 months? on: July 22, 2005, 05:07:38 PM
I got two copies of wow for me and the wife, and decided to pick my 4 year old son up a game.  (he lieks playing sponge bob and such).  got willy wonka, come back ehre to read the reviews and found out it sucks...

So gotta take it back and find another before it gets opened...

Tak 2 any good for a kid?   Or any other suggestions..  he liked I ninja, and some spongebob game where he fights robots...

Tak 2 or maybe that star wars lego game, though not sure if it would be above him or not...  (jump puzzles and crap)
1017  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I need a game. What good that I have missed? on: July 22, 2005, 05:05:16 PM
I got two copies of WOW at lunch, heh...  since nothing else seemed real great.   There been a funk in pc games lately?

Seems like there would be pretty many I missed in 6 months, but maybe they all just come out around christmas now..


thanks for the help.
1018  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 22, 2005, 05:03:39 PM
I got two copies of it at lunch.

As far as servers go, since the game has pvp, whats the difference between a pvp server and a pve server?  No pvp at all on the PVE servers?  Of on pvp peeps from your side can attack you?

Is there a way I can tell server populations and make sure I get on a "new server"?   I am not much of a rp person though, if that makes a difference..
1019  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 22, 2005, 02:56:06 PM
Ugh, warlock is like a necro in this game, so it looks like the mage is the nuker then, eh...

Warlocks in eq2 are the nukers  ugh...  so no warlock for me..
1020  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 22, 2005, 02:49:49 PM
Err, pvp against pve servers?


I thought wow was pvp period.....


Whats the difference here?
1021  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I need a game. What good that I have missed? on: July 22, 2005, 02:28:00 PM
Ill go see what I can dig up on dominions 2...

Hopefully its fantasy based.  slywink
1022  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I need a game. What good that I have missed? on: July 22, 2005, 02:15:48 PM
Ugh, thats it?   hrmmm...

I guess everyones still burning up the mmorpg then eh?

Dawn of war was pretty cool I guess.  Vampire, isnt that game like 3 years old or something?
1023  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 22, 2005, 02:13:44 PM
Well, my wife and I would probably be level 10 in about 1 night.   Anywhere I can read on whats best way to build a character with these talents?

I am a guardian on eq2, and have tanked every mean mob in the game.   Wife will probably go priest.   When you say good warrior, you mean good as in play good, rather then goodie right?   biggrin

Troll a good evil race for a priest?

If I decide to go with a undead nuker, warlock the best pick as far as raw DPS goes?   (I might want a change from being a tank)
1024  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / xbox... Best games in last 6 months? on: July 22, 2005, 12:03:18 PM
I usually play PC games mainly, but like some of the xbox games too.   Any really great games that I have missed out on in the last 6 months?

Xbox games I have liked in past include halo,  ninja gaiden, morrowind, knights of the old republic.

Any must haves thats been out for the xbox?  I need a game bad...
1025  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Care to answer some questions about WOW for me? on: July 22, 2005, 12:00:20 PM
Thinking about picking this up.   I am a min/max style player, and I duo alot with my wife.   I would prefer to pick characters that are very much in demand in the high end game, as well as , I suppose pvp for this game.  We tend to prefer to play evil races on most games, but if its bad disadvantage guess I could play a fuggin goodie.

Anyways, server choice?  (we are in ohio if that makes a difference)

Any concerns about (chinese botters/plat farmers?)

What are the top min/max classes for raiding/pvp?   Any certain race I should play for that class?   I need a couple, wife be playing too.  We like tanks, healers, and nukers for the msot part.

Anything I need to know that may screw up my character in the long run?


Thanks in advance for any info you got on this one.
1026  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I need a game. What good that I have missed? on: July 22, 2005, 11:54:46 AM
Been playing eq2 hard since november.  Ive killed everything in the game, contested etc, and getting bored.

I need a new game for me and the wife.   Games I have liked in the past include:

Homm3, warlords, age of wonders (TBS)
eq1, eq2, COH (MMORPG)
Kohan, kohan 2, warcraft 2 (RTS)
Morrowind, bg2, toee, icewind dale

Wife likes mmorpg, diablo, homm3, age of wonders

So, what games have I missed that are really good in the last 6 months or so?  Prefer some kind of multiplayer, as the wife and I like to play games together.   Any ideas?  any must haves that I missed out on?
How did that lotr RTS game that was coming out around last christmas pan out?

Thanks for any info you got for me.  I hope to be picking up a good game today for us.

1029  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / everquest 2 I need fighters/warriors info. on: November 14, 2004, 01:47:55 PM
I decided to go warrior, and soon I am going to have to decide zerk or guard.

Any links or something with good info on fighter classes?   Hard to find any, hard beta info it seems, or parhaps I just do not know where to look these days, heh.
1030  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Everquest 2 - first impressions on: November 14, 2004, 01:45:44 PM
Well, I love EQ2.  Consider wow beta uninstalled. :lol:
1031  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Everquest 2 - first impressions on: November 10, 2004, 11:12:46 PM
Well, I like the locked combat thing.

This is the problem.  People buy two accounts once they get that shaman or cleric or whatever high level, and mass produce what ever type of character they want.   They two box, and their newb can defeat things solo they should never be able to, getting great exp.

PL characters was destroying COH for me. (Although this was accomplished through the sidekick feature)   Sounds like EQ2 has fixed it, which is a good thing.   PL sucks...   I am glad someone can help you, but you dont get the exp.   IF you couldnt kill it without help, you dont deserve the exp.   Be glad you dont loose exp for attacking something you cannot handle.

In High Level eq, peeps that quit give that 50 shaman to a friend.  That 50 shaman will set outside the group, buffing/healing/debuffing.  Allowing the group to kill things they shouldnt be able to.   Why have a enchanter, if you can KEI the group with a buff BI***?
1032  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WOW warriors (tauren) on: November 07, 2004, 04:42:38 PM
thanks obb, ill run to a trainer and check it out, heh

I just got defensive stance...   Ill go see if I can train some abilties into it...
1033  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WOW warriors (tauren) on: November 07, 2004, 01:53:20 PM
Ok, I did a quest for a orc, and got defensive stance.   Heh, now I am not sure which stance is "better", lol...


One more question if you dont mind.  My wife is a priest.  How the hell do I taunt a mob off her?  Is there a taunt ability or something?
1034  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WOW warriors (tauren) on: November 07, 2004, 12:55:49 PM
Ok, I made it to Ogrimm, got a axe, and trained for a bow too, but cant afford one, heh.  Thank you for the tip.

Eightball, is it best to use different weapons?  Like shield/axe sometimes, then two handed axe other times?   I am not sure which is the best way to go.   Also, what about stances?   I dont see anywhere to train for other stances.  I am not sure if they are needed or not, but see I need defencive stance to train something I think.

I wanted to use the bow to pull with, seems like its sort of needed sometimes.

Anyways, thanks for the tips.
1035  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WOW warriors (tauren) on: November 06, 2004, 05:19:00 AM
yea, the ones I want to use are two handed...

they sell them at the newbie village...

Why cant a warrior use two handed weapons?  The hammer is two handed...

Where do I need to go and learn this?
1036  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WOW warriors (tauren) on: November 06, 2004, 03:39:15 AM
Ok, level 6 tauren warrior.  I am still using this gay hammer...  I see axes and swords around, but all say I am not proffecient.  I went to weaponsmaster in thunderbluff, but he just trains for guns and staffs?

So how the hell ya use a sword or axe in this game?  There a weapons master I am missing, or are tauren not alloed to use them or what?

Between Kohan 2, and EQ2 and WOW coming around the corner, toss in Halo 2 and that lord of the rings RTS game with the kick ass movies, and uh, I am going to be pretty busy for the next, uh, year or so.  Your going to have to make a kick ass game if I am going to squeeze you into my schedule.  Cool

What was all that about awhile back when they were arguing PC gaming is dead/dying?  Heh, I been gaming for years, and I think its as good now as its ever been. Tongue
