Out of the Blue

I finally got to see League of Extraordinary Gentlemen on the satellite. Ouch. And I like comic book movies... I can't imagine how people who don't share that taste felt about this one (and I don't want to imagine what Alan Moore must think). On a happier note, I got to see Hero in the theater the other day. A good Jet Li movie... who knew? But I still have a vexing movie situation facing me: I have a free pass to see Alien versus Predator, but it's actually not playing at the local cineplex(?), meaning to see it I will have to (gasp) break with my movie routine. That's pretty drastic, we'll just have to see how that goes.

It is a very functional game and simple to get into, but...the scope is all over the place and this thing needs a *ton* of polish.

I've tried a bunch of these and by far this is the easiest to get your feet wet in. It's a shame they Blizzard didn't do the stress test either before the lastest patch or after the next. This patch broke a TON of things, quests, chests, Hunter's pets, nerfed some talents, just a lot of stuff.

Oh well. The intent of this test is to test their registration set-up and infrastructure. The rest is gravy I guess.

I have no doubt this is because the textures are so fuzzy, albeit fairly clean. It already looks worse than some current games, not to mention heavy hitters like EQ2.

The graphics seem fine to me. The current problem are all the broken animations. Things that used to work before don't now. See my last point.

Again, I will play more, but I think this is best for the die-hard Blizzard fans and those new to the MMOG arena.

While I've enjoyed all of the games Blizzard has made I'm not a die-hard. That said, maybe I'm just a MMOG newbie

All that aside, how the $%@#$@$#%$ do I make waypoints, Matthew?

You don't.

Not sure when or if they will be implemented. Of course I know several griffon routes so I can hop from city to city with ease. I think I leveled 5 or 6 times before I left the first general 'map'

Any tips on keeping track of which quest is to which trainer?

I didn't have trouble keeping track of them in my head. However, Cosmo might work with the stress test:

Look here for instructions on installing it:

Can you make names that are more than one word?

Don't know. All my characters are one word.

What is the exact science to getting skill points? I have about six or seven so far, but they all pretty much came from random combat.

Look back through my post history. Several posts back I went into skill points. The short of it is that skill points are gained by killing. The ratio is roughly 400-500 XP to get one skill point. You get no skill points from XP awarded for quests.

Is the combat all about flagging enemies?

Are you playing a Hunter? If so I don't know. Blizzard added that class just last patch. So many people ran out and rolled one I stayed away.


Is there a way to spawn more? It took me over one hour to do the "Kill X of these creatures" because they never spawned enough and, the moment they did, some %$@%%$ archer or mage already tagged 'em.

No way to spawn more. I'll give you a hint. Type the following:

/1 lvl (whatever level you are) (class) LFG: (name of quest)

Then hit enter. If you group with people for a kill X quest one kill counts for all of you. Spread out and bang it out REAL quick.

What is the breakdown between the skill points (that I do not know how to use) and the thing the trainers teach you? Or are they tied together?

Again, if you go back to my earlier posts you will see some of this. I've also gone into what skill points are used for here:

http://www.braglio.com/archives/000371.html

When you join, what server do you pick?

I only have two to choose from PVP and PVE. Stress test is different apparently. I just checked and the PVP server has crossed swords. So I would say those are PVP.

Why do we all start in the same location? Can you pick where you start?

Where you start is based upon your race. I hear the Tauren start is the nicest. Although I can say the Undead start is cool. Many people have complained that the NE land is not set yet. Many of its early quests are broken and the land is underpopulated. Maybe you should roll a diff race?

Need more? Glad to help.
