No fast travel does seem pretty awesome, especially since im always more in for exploration and adventure in MMOs than anything. What about exploring as a party?

Try cramming 1000 people in a gym meant for 100 people, all at the same time, instead of throughout the day. That's basically their servers right now

I have 40k silver to put towards the 100 silver needed to start the 15 clan start. First name Sayloo family name Moss in game playing a witch level 15 only but when I logged off 7 hours ago I was the number 3 gatherer. Just started my second worker gathering potatoes. Heh my first random six plants all matured 3 hours ago so I'll see if they aren't dead in an hour when I log in for tonight.

Thanks.

I don't know if I have the time right now to try out an MMO, so I wasn't sure if you have to buy the game now or not for the extras beyond the base game. Since they are permanent, I can hold off deciding for now.

I think disaster may be a tad hyperbolic. I put in 15 hours today with no issues. Yes, they had the early problem with the characters going to the wrong server on a single server. That was quickly corrected and they're compensating people for that. Yes I didn't receive my preorder items yet, but that isn't the end of the world. As far as playability, it's been fine in my experience. Those other things are what I'd call hiccups, having been through much worse with other MMOs at launch, nowhere near disastrous.

I'm trying to get an understanding of this game as someone who really only has a past with traditional MMO's. What keeps me interested until level cap and what goals do I have to work to after? Is it really heavily PVP focused "end game"?

GW2 was the only non "theme park" type MMO I've played and I really didn't enjoy it because I didn't feel I was working towards anything. Is it safe to say I'll be dissapointed by this?

I love games like Rust, DayZ as far as sandbox type games. I've just never played a sandbox MMO.

I think something you should stop thinking with is your statement "What keeps me interested until level cap" Trading and crafting, farming are very different and not as dependant upon level. Its not like you hit level 30 and thus craft a level 30 items.

You can just level to level 50 and then backtrack or you can get lost upon the way at level 15 and just starting crafting, or become a gatherer, or farmer.

Ok. But these professions what purpose do they serve in the long run? I guess I'm just having trouble fathoming spending my time farming or gathering if it doesn't lead to a end goal. Like do I become the best and then lead a merchants guild and then I'm playing logistics simulator. Why would I become a master crafter, what purpose does it fill in the grand scheme of things game wise?

How odd. I brought my laptop into work today so I could do some afk fishing but the client seems locked to NA rather than EU and it's not doing anything when I change it.

*Edit* Weird launcher bug. I sorted it. If there's not a resolution set in the launcher options you can't change any of the other options

The merchant guild/ simulator thing can definitely happen. You turn your late game PvE from re running raids for gear into a game about maximizing profits and controlling markets. Or, just supplying the people with goods.

there is an in game record of what level you are for nine different skills the top 30 for each skill is shown and if your below 30 your given like a bar grade to see how far away from being top tier you are. If your top4 in a particular skill you get a symbol above your name that anyone in game can see. Like I was on a trade run riding my donkey and I saw the wealthiest person in game afk standing around in western guard camp which is the second town/quest hub you come into.

Like for me I'm been going stupid crazy on gathering, I was top 3 on server at one point. logged off for 8 ish hours went down to 19th. The tracking updates the symbols like every 15-20minutes.

I have no clue how far it goes but it starts beginner level with ranges from 1 to 10, then you become apprentice level 1 and continue to work upwards. not sure how many grades after that but you see what I mean?

This is a four year old Dell XPS. i7, 8 gig of ram and a nvidia 540m. I run everything on low and it's not great to be honest. Decent enough for mucking around though

Combat at level 20 last night on my tamer was so satisfying

Hmm, well that should be okay then, my current laptop is a i7 4700MQ, 16GB of ram and a 765M. At the very least it'll be playable enough until I get around to buying a new desktop, but I'm waiting for Pascal.

Awww Yis!

Can't wait to play, wednesday for me!

I am still undecided between the EU or US server as I am from the UK! I do want to be part of an active guild though and US seems the best bet for socializing.

I am also very overwhelmed just reading about the game but excited to dive in.

Thinking I will have 3 types of characters one for pve/pvp one for gathering/fishing and one for cooking/selling.

Any tips for somebody who has not played the CBT's?

It's a game for wandering, not a focused approach. So if you get lost, that's the point.

Well my guess is that been a sandbox game, you CAN and SHOULD do whatever you please.

All is feasible and any play style is rewarded.

That is my take on things.

Is that NA maintenance? Because I'm still logged in EUside

*Edit* I seem to be having trouble afk fishing. I can see from my chat log that I'm catching lots of stuff. But non of it after the first fish is going into my inventory. Is there something I'm missing?

*Edit2* The setting to throw away all junk items is anything below green quality.

Locking classes behind gender and indirectly age feels quite limited. Is this also still the case in the korean version?

I was so hyped for Tuesday, then I realised today was the 29th T_T. I guess Wednesday isn't that far away...

I can't wait to get stuck in. Once I'd played enough beta to decided to buy the game, I made myself hold of playing much more so everything felt fresh on the first play through.


The two classes I wish I'd tried out were the Tamer and the Berserker, Tamer especially as I heard its a good AOE class thats strong while playing solo.
