Goblin Squad Member

Long Time lurker, since I don't have time to really post much. I just read a lot to keep up to date.

P.S

Yes Nihimon I am still around.

Thanks everyone for the help. I found out what the issue was. I purchased a new HD a month ago and reinstalled my OS. I had no Direct X drivers on my machine. Once I installed the Direct X everything is working fine now.

Hardin Kell is in the Guild.

See everyone in game.

Okay I went and got the game from Steam. Now when I run it, it is stating there is a Windows Error and wont let me get into the game. Anyone have any idea regarding this issue. Any help would be great.

Thanks,

Kell

All right you all talked me into playing this game. I will get into it over the weekend. After I have it installed and up and working, I will jump into the TS server. My characters name will be Kell Staninn. I will make him a Skirmisher. Haven't decided on a race as of yet.

I backed both.

I like how the look of it is shaping up. I am really interested in the ability to customize the color scheme's. I would like to finally be able to make my character different from everyone else....

The design of the establishments and buildings are also looking very good.

Keep up the good work..

Correct me if I am wrong. According to the new post, "evil aligned" characters might not have access to the best training building one could get compared to a "Good aligned character."

What I do not understand, then if this is correct, what about the other part of the alignment that people seem to be missing. The Lawful, Neutral, and Chaotic part of it.

From what I have read is all towns will be based off alignments. If this is the case, there are going to be no Good towns, Evil towns, or Neutral towns. They will have the full spectrum of the alignments, I do have to digress, there might be "True Neutral" towns.

So then in my theory of thinking, what is going to stop a Chaotic Evil character from going into a Chaotic Good settlement to do his/her training? - Since GW already stated that characters can move and interact with towns within 2 steps of their alignments.- Of course other than he might not have the correct rep to enter such a town, or if the town knows he is a nut case they might not let him. Wouldn't it be a smart move for that player to befriend the town so he could use such training?

If that is the case, I really over all do not see an issue with playing an evil alignment.

As for what are the benefits of playing an Evil character vs Good character we will have to wait and see what GW has in store for us to make that call.

Well if Nihimon has escaped, I can always go and "find" him, for a small fee of course.

Mr. Being, I agree the Dragon Realms Crossing invasions. Those were the good ole days.

I was lucky enough to be mid level, I was actually able to help in the offense, until the higher level invaders appeared. Then I just ran back to the guild hall to stay safe. I did pick up one of the best bows I had ever seen in game off of the invader I killed. But those were the most confusing and fun events I have ever had privy to an any online game I had played.

My next favorite memory was of Ever Quest. When a GM RPed Firiona Vie. It was great to see a Demi God walking through the woods talking to normal players and having them to follow her to help her with a quest she was partaking in.

My third was in WOW with the Ringing of the Gong for the opening of Ahn'Qiraj. Our server worked hard to be the 3rd server in the world to be able to open that dungeon. That was the first and only time I have seen a zone crash from the amount of PC's in a zone. I had heard there were 1000 or more people in the zone for that.

I would be interested in this as long as it is not too late in the evening.

Goblin Squad Member

testing....

The Delta Launch sounds good. Good Job Nih.. Here is another suggestion.

"The TerraForming Period" Because GW is going to be using the player base to help them form their world into the final creation.

Human rogue with a couple of fighter levels. As you can see by my name I am going to be the person to find rare things for people.

So a lot of responses to my question were of two varieties:

1: Ways to make it cool for one person or a small group to interact with PvE content.

2: Suggestions to make reselling the output of the encounter the point of interaction.

The first fails because it maximizes the interaction of the involved people with the content, not with each other or the wider social graph of other characters.

The second fails because if the economic advantage is meaningful farming the encounter will become routine and the flow of the components will become commodities.

Think about the idea that whatever the answer is it has to be repeatable hundreds, maybe thousands of times each day. It also has to be something that both individuals, small groups and large organizations might all compete for. And remember than in an MMO, nothing can really be mechanically unique or of extreme limited availability without creating artificial winners and losers, or restricting content to a tiny minority of the people who are financially supporting the game.

I'd like you all to try harder. The question is "how do we make the presence of unique opponents that produce exceptional loot maximize human interaction"?

Mr. Dancey,

I guess my first question to you would be.

What is your definition of human interaction?
Is it only one person interacting with one other, is it 1 person interacting with 100 others, is it 100 people interacting with 100 people?

My second question is,

What is your definition of exceptional loot?

Is it a Potion of Invisibility and a scroll of Magic Missle Lvl1/Caster Lvl1? Or is it a +5 Full Mythril Platemail, a +5 Large Steel Shield, and a Ring of 3 wishes?

If you could answer these two questions I think it will help everyone with a better understanding of what you are looking for.

Honestly Patrick I do not see this game as a PVP gank-fest in the beginning. The reason is at the very start everyone is going to try and get their foothold in the game.

People will be trying to figure out the ropes of the game, and then it will be the mad dash to acquire gear,trade skills,professions, and to lay claim to their hex.

Once all that is acquired then PVP will become an issue, of course you will have the occasional baddie, that wishes to make everyone's life miserable early on. But I feel at the start that is going to be minimal.

So in all honestly in the short run you should be able to play the game as you want, but in the long run you would probably want to alliance yourself into a guild that will help you if you run into the issue of PVP.

And one more thing to remember, The Bounty Board is your friend also. The gankers will learn to leave you alone if you continuously place bounties on players heads that attack you.

I would like to say Hello to everyone here. I have been a lurker for over a month. I think the character I plan on playing would fit in well with your guild. Dependent on how the alignments do play out.

I do like what I see with the company and probably will go and take a look at your website.

Kêll, The Finder....
