Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Meaning you buy the game you get to play everything? no okay here, now buy this quest pack, now buy this quest pack, oh and that one too? you get everything(outside expansions of course)
basically like guild wars?
What you DO get if you buy the game and don't sub: Every piece of content in the game currently. This includes a huuuge amount of Tamriel and a huuuuge amount of quests. IMO, worth the price of admission if you're not paying a sub. You also get 1.6 changes like stealing etc. They've said they also want to make sure everyone gets new game systems etc without having to pay extra.
What you DON'T get: New content. I think they're avoiding "expansion packs" like you'd expect from most games. Instead they do want to go with content packs. This shouldn't be just a quest line here or there but rather whole new zones. People who sub get the new content as part of the sub and can likely buy them permanently using the crown stipend they get. Pricing, scope, or really details at all haven't been announced. This might cause some to worry but I think it's a wait and see sort of deal. This content will also scale so it's available to all levels.
My guy is a Nightblade sword&board tank. I'm not really sure just how viable he was (or is, at this point. Thus me asking for resources on current viable builds), but I loved the idea of a tanky rogue.
I hope they've given us some free respecs in light of all the balance changes since last I played.
When I first logged in again on my Templar I know I was refunded all my class specific points since they had rebalanced them quite a bit. It wasn't all points, but anything that was significantly changed.
