Sep 25th 2007 3:37PM I remember the first time I ran Mara with a real, pre-made group. It was the first instance I ran without a PUG and the smoothness of it and the way we actually were able to go through each pull working together without any wipes was just so much fun. It was the first time I actually found an instance to be more fun than it was frustrating. That's when it really clicked for me what this game was about.

Aug 24th 2007 6:11PM Personally, I'd love to see a more inclusive PVP, one in which players can take on the roles of the officers and would span multiple level ranges and have to armies fighting over a single objective.
It could work in brackets where each side would have only a handful of level 70s as the generals, and then several level 60-69s as the officers, followed by some 50-59s as company commanders, then 40-49 as the calavary, and then 20-39 as the general foot soldiers. With increasing numbers of each as you go down so that you could eventually have 80-100 players on a side, all fighting against each other. Especially with the introduction of seige weapons and destructible buildings this type of PVP could be amazingly fun if people got into it and were organized. Imagine 2 huge guilds fighting against each other to conquer a town or keep.
In a way it's similar to what PVP raiding tries to be, only in an organized, instanced situation. Sure there are reasons why it would be difficult to pull off, but it would be a way to really escalate the idea of war and conflict and provide a way for players of all levels to work together and feel valuable.
Aug 16th 2007 6:50PM Having to pay big fees for respec'ing may not be that big of a deal when you're level 70 and can pump out 150 G a day with out too much effort, but what about my level 30 alt mage that I'm playing for the first time. I like to be able to experiment with different specs to find the one I like playing most, and its very annoying when its costing me huge amounts of gold at such low levels. Sure I can always use my 70 main to pay these costs for my alts, but then that becomes a huge drain on his bank account for something that doesn't have anything to do with him. I'd say that up through a certain level, respec's should cost considerably less than they do now.
