Is a rough MMO Open Beta launch even newsworthy nowadays?
I loaded it up, and tried the classes I wanted to play. *Zealot, Shaman, and Sorcerer*. I played a Hunter, Rogue, and Warrior the last few years in WoW, I'm ready to play a caster class again. I've also never played a healer class, so I might just for a change of pace.
I was extremely dissapointed with the feminine look of the male Dark Elf characters. Literally, I thought I was looking at a female, to the point where I was clicking the male symbol several times thinking the game had crashed. I can see why they might want to make a Dark Elf feminine looking, such as the way Blizzard handled the art for the Blood Elves, but to say Mythic went overboard is an understatement.
I will probably end up playing the Shaman, the Zealot was a little "too" focused on Healing for my taste. *I was under the impression that with Warhammer, all classes would have nice offense abilities, but it seemed as if WoW's Priest has more options for damage than Warhammers "primary" healer classes.*
Regardless, hopefully this game is worth playing, I don't want to wait another several years for the next-generation MMOs.
