My ESO nick is Corragar, it's a lot of fun. I thought I was tired out on age of empires 2(I was). But this is way more fun that I orginally had though.

I was wondering, does anyone know of a list of steering wheels that are supported by the game? It's a non purchase if my red momo force steering wheel doesn't work. It worked fine in GT3 using the USB port.

10  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WOW - Mage - Frost or Fire? on: February 11, 2005, 06:52:59 PM
I'm going to go arcane/ice, to increase the quality of frost nova and other things that allow me to survive.

I went arcane because of the instant AOE that arcane explosion provides, want to team up with my priest roommate, and put PW:Shield on me and then I'll collect a buttload of guys and annihilate them.
11  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / FRIDAY NIGHT FIGHT - Halo 2 on: February 11, 2005, 06:45:03 PM
I might be up for a pwning tonight. I'm crappy at halo2, can only really use the shotgun(when I play, which with world of warcraft isn't much)
12  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Server Race and Class Statistics on: December 09, 2004, 04:25:36 PM
Yeah I agree the barrens quests aren't any more difficult, the running does suck though if you plan out the quests right, you should be able to do a large number of them in one corner for the hour then hearthstone back.

Having the barrens as one huge zone kinda is bad for lag from what I've experienced though.

I don't remember any red missions that I did "without a scratch", though I don't remember(I was grouped most of the time). The only horrid one is the slith'd digger quest that's definitely under conned.(for a soloer)

Humans do seem to have a fewer number of collect X items from mobs and what ones they have are easier or require less items. I've got characters(and guild or friends) for both sides so I don't care all that much though.
13  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW: it's a WAR out there, man! (Dueling) on: December 09, 2004, 04:02:39 PM
well regardless, a mage probably wouldn't be smart to wear that much stamina gear, as most int gear doesn't have stamina as well from what I've seen. Int=damage for a mage(I think), so you'll want to increase that.

If a tank type gets close to a mage type, it's over anyway, mages do not absorb much damage(early at least) due to the much lower Armor Class.


I agree that the stamina thing must be a bug though.
14  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW - The Hunter Class on: December 09, 2004, 03:55:08 PM
I have a level 26 orc hunter.

One thing you want to look at is the pets within each class of pet(i.e. bear, cat, bird, etc) have different attack speeds when you get them(this stat does not change when your pet levels up).

For example I had a savannah huntress(it had 2.0 attack speed), My current pet also a cat(a night stalker-blue/black with white spots.) has an attack speed of 1.3. I have heard another cat has 1.2 attack speed(a needles cougar). These are all in horde areas but probably they have similar cats for alliance. I think 1.2 is the fastest attack speed from what I've heard.

--Eco make sure you check all three major cities they have weapon trainers that only do some of each of the weapons. I went and put the cash in at each place about level 15 to train in swords(1h and 2h),2h axe, basically everything(no need for polearm though which I accidentally bought and is 1 gold). I am currently using a 2h axe, but may dual wield later(for stat purposes(2 +agility weapons), not damage, or use a 2 handed sword, depending on what drops or I purchase in the Auction House. Although if I find a cool polearm I might just use it for uniqueness.

I didn't realize hunters were the most played class in some PvE servers.
15  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Filthy Horde Invading Elven lands....(Pictures) on: December 08, 2004, 07:12:26 PM
yeah I heard it was laggy from my guild too(not on your server), but the guild tried (with about 120 people), and it was awful laggy too. Who won this battle?
16  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Good/bad of WoW being on PvP vs PvE servers? on: December 08, 2004, 07:05:44 PM
IMO, PvP servers really should be only be picked if you like one of the following:

1. You have a guild to support you

2. You like a little excitement, everytime you get attacked on the road or during a quest, remember you will get to kill someone later.

3. You like the different playstyle that a PvP server allows. Killing monsters is far different than a human player, or doing those duels.


Also don't expect to be able to solo very much, usually the PvP'ers are running around like 1 or 2 people with no direction. If you have superior numbers they will die(unlees the other person is like 10+ levels above your group). I have only made level 25, so I don't know if there are quiet corners of the world in contested areas, where soloing is more reasonable to do.

18  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / I can't decide- it's driving me nuts! on: December 08, 2004, 06:52:49 PM
well, I have played most of the classes, and I to tell you the truth found most of them fun. I have been able to solo effectively with every class. It is not like the other MMORPG's where you need a warrior and priest to have success. Most combinations work well(as long as you have some healer-Druid,Shaman,Priest,Paladin)

But I'd say just pick something that fits your play style, don't read the blizzard.com forums(all of the people that don't like the game are there usually) Don't worry about what people say about gimp this or nerfed that or that you have to play a character a certain way.

But I agree the first 10 levels are not the most fun(although they are fun don't get me wrong), when you start doing instances and fighting difficult boss mobs with people from consolegold or other mature guilds, that is more fun I think.
19  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Microsoft to release three versions of Xbox 2 on: November 11, 2004, 07:02:23 PM
Someone that my roommate knows works for the Xbox Live team, let me see if he can confirm or deny existance of 3 xboxes.

Regardless I think it's a BAD idea to have 3 different xboxes, consumers will get confused I think. The current Xbox setup would easily be able to add audio features, Tivo features, email, word processors, etc.

Also isn't one of the selling points of a console is that it doesn't give blue screens of death, convoluted error messages, or the bomb screen?

If you install a full operating system onto the machine, it will crash in bad ways more often guaranteed. The simple fact is that if you add millions of lines of code there will be bugs. And Bugs=crashing.

The one teamxbox article actually says that this information is questionable due to past MSFT statements.
20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Banned From Xbox Live on: November 09, 2004, 03:13:56 PM
If it checks your hard drive inside the xbox, could you not just switch back to your old 8 gig drive rather than buying a new one, and just leave the xbox case open to swap out the pirate hard disk?
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2 - It's ON! (impressions thread) on: November 09, 2004, 03:01:29 PM
So is this hugely better than halo 1, or is it the hype machine that has inflated ratings on gamerankings.com?
Or maybe microsoft bribes(j/k)

Damn you console gold, interest has risen to "I'll think about it"(shortly followed by I'm at the store buying it probably). But WoW is too good and coming out soon.. Also for my fps fix, half-life 2. And sadly mario tennis ;0 And I still have GTA to get farther into.
22  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / New Comp Help - Capable of running Half-Life 2 on: October 22, 2004, 03:19:12 AM
go to www.slickdeals.net and www.techbargains.com, they list the times that dell has computer specials, and how to configure it to get a minimum price. You should be able to put decent together on the cheap that won't be the fastest system ever, but definitely will get the job done.

I got a special about 2 years ago-where the price of a motherboard and processor from newegg or whatever, was about the same than a complete system from dell. I have had no issues with this machine. The Dells are very good from my experience at my work place too.


DO NOT buy ram from dell though, get the mimimum possible. Dell is a rip off for memory. Video cards are a bit pricy but not a gouge like RAM.

You can always check www.newegg.com for current RAM and video card prices. I don't know if you are getting something other than the onboard sound cards that dell provides.
23  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / JO or SW:B or ??? on: October 22, 2004, 03:02:01 AM
Or you could just wait for Half-Life 2 coming out next month.
24  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / EQ 2 Beta - am I being paranoid? on: October 21, 2004, 02:03:09 AM
One thing that WoW has that EQ2 doesn't is PvP(at this point anyway).

If PvP appeals to you world of warcraft is the way to go.(I'm in sturmgrenadier-sghq.com a top notch guild if your looking for PvP)

I was originally interested, but the league took too long to get started up, and now I'm not interested. Sorry if I made anyone wait.

Thanks, I'll get you soon in burnout or some racing game
31  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Who is playing WoW? on: September 18, 2004, 08:41:53 PM
I'm not currently in the beta, but I will be playing when it is released. I had done the stress test with a NE rogue(level 17.5). I enjoyed the game, the leveling wasn't a grind at all, I just needed to do a little more running that I should have.

I signed up for the guild that's being run at planetwarcraft.com, which is a PvP guild. I got tired of thewanderers guild that people on gonegold were/are running. It was usually hard to find any groups.

However some other friends I know are going to be doing it up on some server, if you name a server when it's finally released, I'll setup my alt on your server, and tell them to as well. We are doing alliance characters as of this time.

Also I have a teamspeak server prepared for this game(and it's being used for war3 and poker on pokerstars currently). If it gets really popular, then I'll purchase the server license.
