    New Section. Though 99% of it is just stolen from the GW Website, it still works. I will add and edit it as time goes on. Thoughts?

    Not in Warhammer it's not. It's Dwarfs.

    Every time I see the Games Workshop site I get all reminiscent and stare at the boxes of unpainted figurines sitting in a corner in the kitchen............ And then remember that I'm a terribad painter which stops all motivation to actually go paint them.

    Nah, it makes perfect sense. Warhammer elves like changing their Fs to Vs... thieves, wolves, dwarves, elves. Warhammer dwarfs like leaving their Fs along... thiefs, wolfs, dwarfs, elfs. It's just one of the myriad reasons the two don't tend to get along.

    From what I read on the site, you get 10 days free once you reactivate if you've been gone long enough..

    http://www.warhammeronline.com/faq/calltoarms.php

    Now if you've been gone longer than 60 days, please send me your email in a PM and I can send you a 10 day account -and- I'd get a free month out of it if you resub fully.

    My performance was shit tonight for some reason, but I did manage to grab a zone lock and 6k scenario in a short period. It was about 10k renown for an hour of play total.

    Sweet, sweet renown.

    Slayer (Dwarf MDPS) and Choppa (Greenskin MDPS)

    No plans currently for more classes.

    People seem to expect an expansion at some point with Skaven for Destruction and something for Order (Lizardmen seems to be the popular theory)

    I think you are fairly new around here. Unlike that other MMO, WAR doesn't have new classes that are vastly superior in every way to the older classes. That being said, there were 4 classes that were delayed from launch and reworked and then launched in tandem with two unique live events. The four classes are the Knights of the Blazing Sun, the Black Guard, the Choppa, and the Slayer. Each with their own unique twists on how to play.

    That being said, there is a class out there for anyone and everyone. So I would not just go by what is the newest.

    Also would like to add that WAR doesn't NEED these new classes nor did it really NEED the newly added ones. The greenskins didn't have a melee dps class, but they got by just fine, just as the Empire did without a tank class for a while. Now that the game has the complete 24 classes as was designed, it would be interesting to see how new races or classes are added.

    No, as I feel I'd be wasting the time of most I've talked to, as our one or two regular groups a week wouldn't have a whole lot to offer them and their fancy nightly raids. I have yet to find a like-minded casual-but-focused type guild to ally with.

    Well. I canceled my sub. It's a fun game, but endgame blows. It's either RvE or zergfest RvR. Scenarios never pop so I very rarely get to play in balanced battles. It's either my side gets raped, or we rape the other side.

    I'll probably try it again in a few months.

    What's a "regular group a week"?
    You mean dungeon running?

    Because if you mean that you can field about 1 or 2 groups in RVR, then that's half a WB and nothing to sneeze at.

    No, about a group of regulars total, only in the same place at the same time when we've planned ahead for an event (once or twice a week at most). Otherwise there's a few people across the tiers here and there.

    I'd love to do more active recruiting and fill in the gaps but I'm just not on enough to do so quickly.

    So... I re-subbed this weekend after leaving the game 2 months after release. Yeah, it's been a while. After playing all weekend, I'm not sure I can play this game. Here are some of my concerns

    1. My 40 WE is a complete joke. Seriously what happened to the class? Maybe it's cause I'm still in blues and greens but I can't take out clothies anymore like I used to. I used to pride myself in always being top dmg in scens, which as a WE was tough as nails. Now I'm pretty dang low.
    2. Servers seem empty, only found one core with t1 scens running.
    3. Rvr seems like a major lag-fest coupled with massive zerging. Sometimes it's an awesome 20 on 20 but it's rare.
    4. The lev 40 item grind is extremely daunting. Roommate started talking to me about lesser wards, and greater wards, and it all pretty much went over my head.

    Tier 1 pvp/rvr is still loads of fun, maybe I just need to stick to that.

    What RR are you?

    I pretty much kept my ranks equal. WEs were nerfed to all holy hell, really the only time you'll feel useful is in a good group :|

    Hope you're not still on REM, because it isn't there anymore.

    1.Yea WE dont rape faces like they use to, right now if you want to melt people its back to being a BW bomb group with dedicated healers. Run in and exploit bugs for victory.

    2.Some servers are not to lively , especially in the lower tiers, my server Phoenix Throne is great.

    3. Fortress battles are bad and still need alot of work, I forsee the Land of the Dead making them easier to stomach as forces will be split between old and new content.

    4. Just been working on Annhilator gear right now so I cant really comment, the wards you need to be able to do high end dungeons/fortress/city sieges so you arent one shotted by bosses.

    How'd you know I was on REM? I think they transfered my character to Zolkar, or Zolkath or something like that. Apparently order on that server is kicking all kinds of butt.

    My WE is only rr29. Back in the day, she was a force to be reckoned with, now I feel like I'm wielding two wet noodles.

    RR60+ WEs in full Invader/Darkpromise/Warlord still can own non-tanks in my experience. But a 40/29 WE in blues/greens probably isn't much more useful than a rank 31 WE. It seems that full annihilator or higher (ideally with epic weapon) and rank 40/rr 40 is when most classes start being competitive.

    On fairly balanced servers the gear/RR grind isn't too bad. You seem to be on Volkmar which is Order dominated though. I would try and see if you can join a good guild or some sort of organized group otherwise T4 there may be very painful.

    I know. I'll probably resub when that comes out, but I foresee that turning into a zergfest when you first gain control of LotD and RvE train when you've wiped most of the opposition.

    Looks like I still have a free realm move. Do you think it would be better for me to move somewhere else?

    Also, aren't epic weapons real tough to get? Roommate said something about needing lesser wards to get to city dungeons, then get greater wards to get to where the epic daggers are. Seems a bit rough.

    It's really not too terrible as long as a) you're in a guild that can take and claim keeps and b) your faction can lock zones where you've got keeps claimed. Zone locks give lots of renown, they give you tokens you can spend to buy Annihilator and Conqueror gear, and if your guild has claimed a keep in that zone they give your guild leader a gold bag that they can mail to anyone in the guild. A friend of mine went from scrub gear to full Annihilator in the span of a week mostly due to those keep bags. Just one of many side benefits to joining an established guild.

    As for weapons, you can take care of that right now if you haven't already. The epic quest weapons can be obtained solo and are fine for starting out at 40. The stats on these are just Ok, but the damage procs make them worthwhile. Tellurian or Remnant (repaired) weapons off the AH are also good choices if you can afford them, and are generally a step up from those quested weapons (no procs but better stats and DPS that make them upgrades overall). Don't worry that they're blue-con and not epic purplez, they're absolutely good enough for initial endgame. Once you get into a guild, you should run Bastion Stair center path for the one PQ that drops +crit weapons out of blue bags. We regularly do this for alts and new members, run the PQ as many times as needed, master loot the blue bags to people who need the weapons. Lots of people in my guild use these Bastion Stair PQ weapons until they max out oRvR influence or get a weapon from Lost Vale.

    Bastion Stair isn't really worth the time otherwise, sadly. Way too much time and effort for way too little reward. They're revamping Gunbad in the next patch, hopefully they do the same for Stair soon. In the meantime, RvRing for Annihilator gear is really your first step as far as armor goes. It has Lesser Wards, and you'll really want at least three or four Lesser wards so you can do city dungeons without getting wtfpwned.

    Hey guys! I was playing this game from the week before it released until about 6-8 months ago. I quit because the Open RVR that I was looking forward to ended up just boiling down to who had more bodies in the way most of the time.

    I was wondering, guys, what's changed in the last 6-8 months? I have been considering picking it back up.
