Nov 6th 2008 2:26PM Layout looks nicer. reply system still sucks. I still can't change my email address.
Nov 6th 2008 11:12AM I think that title would probably be "The over-achiever"
Nov 5th 2008 9:51PM I agree. I pine for the days when ghostcrawler was a hot chick.
Nov 3rd 2008 9:10PM Oh yeah, and I also don't trust these "beings of light". Ever watch sci-fi shows? Those types of beings always turn out to be totally evil in the end.
Nov 3rd 2008 9:04PM I just think that in comparison to your other great articles that this one tastes a bit flat. Blood Elves have a lot of interesting aspects to them, not just with their history, but with other issues as well.
I think there is a lot to be considered to with their relationships with other races. For instance Lady Synvanis, once a revered member of elven society is now undead and leading a faction of living dead which you are allied with... I think that really takes some consideration how they would co-exist. Likewise high elves suddenly being KOS despite the fact that they only parted ways recently.
There are also blood elves who are hunters/rangers, so how do elves actually relate to nature and their environment? Rogues also seem like an odd fit to such a people. And there is also the fact that many elves must have a sort of traumatized refugee mindset by now, similar to those you see in hellfire peninsula when they are in the middle of their pilgrimage.
Loved the dwarf article btw (and I don't play one)
Nov 3rd 2008 4:19PM No rush to buy the expansion if you're still in the 40's. There's plenty of time to get to the level cap. The first time I leveled I took my time, toured different zones and did quests I thought were interesting. Other people in my guild were actually less aware of how many interesting things there are to do and were surprised to hear me talk about them because they just rushed through everything - skydiving in Feralas comes to mind. Not only that, but people would actually say "I'm bored, anyone need help?".. and this would happen a lot. Couldn't say I was ever bored because when you still have levels to gain and gear upgrades to obtain you always have something to do.
Anyway like I said, there's no rush for getting the expansion. Right now is a great time to run instances though with achievements. The other night I was trying to finish off Uldaman for a quest solo... until I found out you need 3 people to open the final door x_x. I'll probably find some low levels to drag through there just so I can finish it, but I'd expect any guild would have people willing to run you through stuff to get achievements.
Nov 3rd 2008 3:52PM Man that first sentence in my post is just... wow. L2English I guess...
Nov 3rd 2008 3:51PM Mostly titles. It would be unfair to leave those behind just starting the game to give players a sort of advantage with achievement items.
Some of the rewards make a lot of sense. Collect a zillion pets, get another pet. Have a bunch of tabards, get an achievement tabard. Same with mounts, etc.
Nov 2nd 2008 9:19PM This article seems rather heavy on story but a bit light on insights into blood elf RP...
Nov 2nd 2008 2:18PM Going to miss the boatloads of XP from tossing some water on a burning building. I even logged into alts I don't play just because the XP was so good.
Last night I sat around on a server waiting to do stop the fires but nothing was happening. Well that's Khadgar for you, the realm seems like it's on fire all the time and crashing but buildings don't burn when you want them to.
