Mar 18th 2006 11:16AM That was pretty impressive. Good use of a song and game visuals. Two thumbs up! I love how they worked in the area around the Gnomish airport, too.
Mar 15th 2006 8:27PM If anyone can make a great MMORPG, I believe it's Turbine. They may never have the same numbers WoW has but I have my doubts as to whether any game will be able to recreate Blizzard's success. That's not the point though. I think Turbine knows what they're doing and as long as they have enough people to support the game, more power to them. Personally, I'm waiting for Middle-Earth Online. That may just pull me away from WoW. We'll wait and see though. Right now I have no intentions of playing D&D Online. My friend's review pretty much put summed up why I won't be in the game: http://joeferg.blogspot.com/2006/03/dungeons-dragons-online-review.html
No crafting...no soloing...No thanks!
Mar 15th 2006 11:56AM That's a pretty good guess with the trolls. What we have to realize is that the new race can't change the fundamentals of how the game is played or how it functions. It will have to be a bipedal humanoid so the Naga, the Centaurs, and the Dryads are out. I don't see Blizzard redoing all of the equipment just to fit a race with less than or more than two feet. Murlocs could work although I don't know how helms would work with them. If it were Goblins, I imagine they would have to redo the way Gadgetzan, Booty Bay, and Ratchet function. They would no longer be neutral areas, right?
Mar 15th 2006 11:46AM Well said Anthony. People piss and moan about farmers but yet there are people out there who are willing to partake of their services. Cigarettes are a great analogy. Those Truth ads love to beat up on Big Tobacco but it doesn't change the fact that there are still people out there wanting the goods.
After watching that, I feel nothing but sympathy for those people. In my opinion, that's a horrible way to live. I've seen nicer meth labs than that first gaming workshop. Even that God-awful house in Fight club beats what those guys are dealing with. I can't help but feel depressed about the whole thing. I wonder if we can adopt one of them for the price of a cup of coffee.
Mar 15th 2006 11:18AM I've never raided another faction's city so I wouldn't know...Ok that's not entirely true. I did manage to solo my way through Thunder Bluff long enough to get a coin of ancestry. I only had to die like 7 times too.
Anyway, I didn't realize that civilians would start fighting. I assumed they were passive and wouldn't attack unless provoked. That's the way it should be. So even if you're fighting guards, they should just cower and whimper for mercy. They're civilians...that's what civilians do. The baker shouldn't pick up a loaf of bread and go after you.
Mar 13th 2006 10:21AM As long as I can still solo my way through everything, then I'm cool. Although I am concerned about this:
"A hunter's attacker no longer looses target when the hunter feigns death"
What does that mean exactly? The forum is down right now.
Mar 10th 2006 3:34PM The only character I play is a hunter so I'm kind of biased about the whole thing. I have yet to get a mount but I know it's coming up. With the way I spend money, I don't see myself getting one soon but it would be nice to get one via a quest or even better.....shouldn't hunters be able to have a special mount? Something they go on a quest for and end up taming. I don't know. It would definitely make more sense in my opinion. I actually would like to see a whole other class of animals in the world that are there specifically for mounting. Who doesn't want to ride around on a sheep? I mean seriously! That would be awesome. Ok, maybe I'm going off the deep end a bit.
Shouldn't hunters at least have a small advantage in say using other races' mounts. A slight faction boost or something. It should be more about the hunter and animals and not the hunter and different factions. Maybe a special "Animal Whisper" spell that lets you slowly persuade other faction mounts to be your friend or something. I don't know. Just some thoughts.
Mar 3rd 2006 1:47PM I think I've been in 3 guilds since I started playing. The first guild was when I was in the teens and it was just ok. Nothing substantial. My second guild originally started out just being for hunters and I had a good time while I was there. Never really grouped or anything. It was mostly just a support system. The guild leader "Warbane" is one of the best I've ever seen though. The guild was just for fun and wasn't anything serious. Warbane went out of his way to help us though, giving us weapons and gold when we needed it. He didn't even have a mount because to him it was more important to share the wealth instead of squander it.
I ended up leaving that guild feeling kind of guilty. I wanted to join up with some people I know in RL. I still haven't really grouped with my guild and usually prefer PUGs. They're there for support though and leather....which I always need. :)
