841  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Which MMO is most casual-friendly? on: October 20, 2008, 06:15:44 PM
I did raiding at lvl 70 to emerald halls and found it great fun. There was and is plenty of small 1 hour instances as well as big raids. There is always plenty of loot and drops as well.

I have a 70 fury and had no issue soloing all the way from 1-70, the guild i was in was a wow/eq2 guild and all the eq2 players were at level cap so most of it was solo or pugs and it was fun.

The only reason i nevergot to 80 was my son was born and i pretty much stopped playing and when i went back to playing never really tried eq2 but will probably be tempted with the new expansion due in November.

Warhammer is defintely best for grouping, i've never had as many invites to groups as i ge tin War, add to this open groups and even if you need a group you can generally get one.

8 for lotro is a bargain, i mean 1 month of play at that price is a bargain.
843  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Which MMO is most casual-friendly? on: October 18, 2008, 09:42:32 PM
Yep plenty of action on the EU servers if thats where you are playing. Also they just upped the xp rate so plenty of low levels playing new toons.

ALso get the eq2 map updater if you try it. Works a bit like the quest helper in wow or warhammer showiong you p[alces of interest and quest locations making it a lot quicker.
844  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Which MMO is most casual-friendly? on: October 18, 2008, 02:51:44 PM
No trial for War atm i'm afraid.

Personally i didn't enjoy LOTRO at all. EQ2 and WoW are the only 2 that have managed to hold my attention for any lengthy of time with EQ2 being my personal favourite.

Well i have just picked this up this morning even though i don't have enough time to play Warhammer let alone a space sim.

Anyways according to the forums it is a lot easier to afford a few new ships earlier on in the game and get a few nice bits. Most are saying this is the game that X3 should have been.

I'll let you know when i have played a bit. 17.99 from play.com is not a bad price.
846  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: October 18, 2008, 12:07:54 PM
I'm happy to join a RP guild, just don't want one that lives and breathes role play. Middle ground or less suits me fine.

The other thing for me is is just don't do alts, have enough time doing 1 toon let alone 2 or 3. If i play an alt then i end up playing that instead of my main. I do have a DoK on another server as well but my IB is the one i want to take through to end game.
847  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: October 18, 2008, 06:58:49 AM
Yeah my usual play time atm is between 20.00 and 22.00. Too knackered to play any later.
848  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: October 17, 2008, 08:14:43 PM
OK i have played all week, up to level 17 and only seen someone on the guild once.

the game really works when you have a good guild with lots of activity, we really need to decide if we are going to join a bigger guild or have enough activity to have the guild. My feeling is we don't and won't have enough.

Any thoughts?
849  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [warhammer] more experience! on: October 13, 2008, 06:15:01 PM
Yep i played 3 or 4 scenarios last night with a few guild members and we had no healers, we got nowhere near winning, total waste of time really.

OK, i'm gonna free up some time to play, main toon is Reemul, he's a 15 IB.

Drop me an invite next time i'm on,

I do love the people that say it's going to cost this or that when no price has been announced.

On the other hand delays have never been an issue in the past but it doesn't mean it's not an issue now.

The one thing that gets me is the amount of stuff people make up or say as if it's fact, until it's out or we get a cost it's hard to actually judge what it means. It could be 3 full  games charged at full price or they could be cheaper, it could be 3 small games at rip off price or even a cheap price. i mean who the hell knows yet.

All i can do atm is judge blizzard on what they have given / done in the past, and so far that has been fine.
855  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [warhammer] Patches, now at 1.01 on: October 05, 2008, 04:41:42 PM
Yep works fine here, no issues with the patch either.
856  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: October 05, 2008, 12:43:59 PM
Sorry mate, i'm hardly going to get any play time this side of xmas, so dropped out, work is getting out of hand atm.

The small time i have had to -play i have been trying a few other toons as well to see.
857  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sacred 2 - Hmmm? Did it actually come out? on: October 03, 2008, 07:37:55 PM
NOt seen it in the uk, last i heard it's novermber
858  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [Warhammer] a few questions for the vets on: September 29, 2008, 06:50:04 PM
I read a post somewhere on warhammer aliancxe from a dev saying to link items in chat would need a code rewrite so isn't likely.
859  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: September 28, 2008, 07:59:22 AM
I'm just not getting any playtime at all atm, snowed under at work and son been ill as well. Hopefully get on a bit this week.

Gotta say this RP server we are on says high but seems dead in tier 2 as well.
860  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: September 27, 2008, 02:33:54 PM
Yep order it is.
861  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: September 25, 2008, 06:26:23 PM
Soon be hitting lvl 3 for the guild, but we have had some great 6 man runs and most of us are mid teens now, we do need to recruit asap but i think most are still getting a feel for it.
862  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Why are there no Warhammer Online Impressions thread? on: September 23, 2008, 09:54:05 PM
Yeah i play an Ironbreaker, normally i team with a Rune Priest and it's amazing how much of a beating you can take from 4 or 5 players. It did take a while to get a mindset of up there at the front, taunt all the time and just keep em on you letting the dps and healers do their stuff. The only time i find myself dying is whne the healer is going down, then if i need to move in to rescue i will.

These tanks are the toughest little bastards i have ever seen in a game, almost like smashing yourself against a brick wall.
863  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Why are there no Warhammer Online Impressions thread? on: September 23, 2008, 05:02:55 PM
No chance, still 40% on level 2, it's slow going but not been many on.

Added to i can't get in game now, i registered my retail code and got a message successful but logging in i get a failed to authenticate message.
864  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Why are there no Warhammer Online Impressions thread? on: September 23, 2008, 04:12:18 PM
Yeah Magus seems real squishy, i'm a tank specced ironbreaker using sword and board and i love Magus, they are so easy to kill, definitely need a bit of love there.
865  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Why are there no Warhammer Online Impressions thread? on: September 22, 2008, 09:06:34 PM
I have to agree, i think there are too many PQ's, i've passed a few by, seen a few with no one in, i just did PQ5 part 1, kill 125 zombies and i killed just about all of them on my own.
It does seem you can out level them very quickly as well, i've looked back and i'm only lvl 13 and there is one i haven't got and 1 i'm 3/4 done but looking at the reward there doesn't seem to be any reason to go back.

As to lower level, maybe people are playing their first toon through the levels rather than playing many alts. We should see more people in the later levels as levelling gets slower.
866  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: WoW to get...Bejeweled? on: September 21, 2008, 09:09:05 AM
Well the amount of people i see sitting in IF still picking there noses and scratching their arses for hours on end means i'm sure there will be plenty of takers.
867  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Why are there no Warhammer Online Impressions thread? on: September 20, 2008, 02:43:33 PM
Beta doesn't have all the languages and intro movie etc.
868  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: September 20, 2008, 08:40:51 AM
Guild is called High Hopes. Which was a throw away remark about having  High Hopes about someones name. Also t

While forming the guild we helped another group form a guild, they were polish and called their guild Bliski Bum Bandits, i know i know, i almost refused to help make it, but thought it would soon be changed.
869  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Why are there no Warhammer Online Impressions thread? on: September 19, 2008, 10:33:20 PM
Things i've found a little annoying.

Gear not just for class but race as well. Had 2 lovely drops while helping the empire out as a dwarf and it's all empire only stuff, Makes me think i'll head back to dwarf land.

Chat is dead, no one talking pretty much ever, even on a RP server. Plus the chat configuration sucks big time, isn't it about time they got this bit right.

I seem to have hassle identifying class, when i mouse over the portrait i'd like it to put up the name and class,

Finally i seem to get a fair bit of hitching and altdorf is unplayable at times. My system is a tad old but even on the lowest setting it seems as bad as the highest setting. Running e6600, 3 gig ram, gf7900gs. 1440 rez.

WAR still has bugs.  With that being said, it's still a lot of fun, other than a few minor annoyances. 

This is why you do not review a MMO at launch, though.


many, many bugs. i keep finding them all over. it's rather annoying since they're the same ones i've submitted numerous reports during the beta. otherwise it's been pretty good. my server is one of the 4 that were capped within a day. Q was quite long on tuesday.

Thing is even with a beta there are probably loads of bugs and it's a matter of priority. Funny though i've got 2 toons an 8 and a 6 and not seen any bugs at all yet and didn't notice any in OB either. One issue is people will want it to be as polished and good as a 3 year + game and it just won't be. Compared to any other recent MMO release its superb.

Since this is becoming the go to thread for war questions, i have one on etiquette.

due to the wanderers choice in servers, i'm planning on making a character on ostermark.  this will be my first real experience with an RP server in an mmorpg (i tried one in wow but quickly abandoned my character after a few days), so i'm not sure how i should behave.  is there a guideline somewhere with suggestions on how to talk, act, etc..?

thanks for any suggestions!

I always find saying stuff like Come hither and look verily on mine sword works fine as a chat up line.  icon_biggrin


Of course i'm a Tank, but this is my first go on a RP server and not really said much, i'm role playing  a mute tank.

But really i see it more as no shouting out soccer scores or chatting about things off topic rather than dressing up and making speeches,  now i just have to get my wife to let me wear my chain mail and sword in the lounge.

874  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [Warhammer] Euro server + chars on: September 15, 2008, 04:48:54 PM
On Burlok

Likely to try these few before i really pick a main.

Reemul an Ironbreaker
Fail an Archmage
Dakeyras a Bright Wizard
Shannow a Swordmaster
875  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: September 14, 2008, 03:17:43 PM
Yep i went Hunter as well and it was a mistake. I am going to try a Tank and a Healer to start with. I think with the fact it's  RvR rather than 5v5 or a 5 man group it won't matter half as much, more like the more the merrier.

I'm also likely to try both factions, you know i've never tried Horde in WoW so will change that in WAR.
876  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: September 14, 2008, 03:05:01 PM
Yeah we need someone to confirm how much  more there is to download. I can't register until after 9am tomorrow and will be at work from 7.00am so no registering until 5pm. Be nice to know how much more to download before i can play. I thought i saw mentioned somewhere at least another 2 gig which includes the intro movie.
877  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer Online headed to Open Beta on 9/7 on: September 14, 2008, 08:08:39 AM
I agree, it does take a play change to appreciate WAR. The healer classes are not just about healing, sure you can just heal but like the Fury in EQ2 you need to be healing, dpsing and buffing to get the most out of your character.

I think Sparhawk was saying that while they were doing the dps they weren't bothering to do the healing bit. It is a one sided mechanic in that if you need to melee or spell to heal you can't just heal while you can just dps. Initally i think you will get a lot of people not using the heal side of the class but just getting stuck in to the dps.

878  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer Online headed to Open Beta on 9/7 on: September 13, 2008, 10:16:42 PM
OK got the reward second time, at least i know for full game next week.

I really enjoyed playing an Ironbreaker and Warrior Priest. I will be playing an Ironbreaker to start and if i go chaos will try a DoK. The further you get into the game the better it gets. I love the dwarf starting zone.

Just a bit disappointed in the amount of play time we got in europe on the OB. But it has defintely pushed me into a day 1 purchase.
879  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: September 13, 2008, 10:10:33 PM
OK Razgon, it was a chocie between a Warrior Priest and an Ironbreaker, so Ironbreaker it will be. I won't get access till Monday as i'm pre order not CE order. I shall be on Monday evening. Gonna be called Reemul, i'll give you a shout.

OK stupid question time, i did the first pq quest and won a white bag, it kept saying open the chest to get the bag but i couldn't find the chest anywhere? Is it supposed to drop by the boss we killed, or somewhere else, in fact i didn't find anything and didn't get my reward frown

It appears in the area of the 3rd phase of the battle.  What side/race were you playing?

Dwarf, and we were well outside the zone as there were only a few of us to kill it so it was a kiting job.
