    Does anybody know if there's some quick hack to change the font in the game and stuff?

    That shit hurts my eyes so bad, it actually turns me off from playing.

    I'm very finnicky like that, heh.

    I'm talking about the chat/combat log, mostly.

    Hey gang,
    I've been a lazy lurker and havnt posted anything on here, since way back in the day.. were talking years like two PA websight changes ago, and then i didnt post much.

    But,
    I'm currently downloading Vanguard cause i wanted an mmo with a differnt but fun feel and from reading what you guys say this is pretty good on teh whole community thing, that and i wanted to group with some PAers cause ya'll rock.

    Umm, for the newb in me its firebrand and what island is most everyone on so i can hook up with ya all easier. And it looks like your thestraians or whatever *thereorycraft here as i'm at work and its dloading at home* I think i'm gonna makea vulmane ranger.. or rogue.. thoughts? wanted a disciple but no thestrans can be disciples it looks like.

    Can someone tell me why i dloaded the game and all 4 gigs of pacs 1-3 and 5 went quick, but pac3 is taking a whole day. *curses the interweb*

    So is the Guild based in Thestra then? If so I don't think I will be joining due to being in Qalia as the Guild I currently call home is in Thestra as well and I can't get a grp with them to help me on Qalia to save my life.

    DOUBLE EXP WEEKEND!! Woot :)http://www.mmorpg.com/gamelist.cfm?loadNews=7252

    So what kinda of PCs are you guys running? And what settings/performance are you seeing?

    I went from this:
    -AMD 3800+ XP
    -1gig Corsair XMS DDR400
    -BFG 6800 Ultra OC

    Getting about 20fps avg in the city (with some big chop spikes), and about 30-35fps avg out in the wilds (Orc continent) at 1280x1024. This is with "balanced" graphic settings, tweaked modestly.

    Now I have this:
    -Intel Core Duo E6600
    -2gig Corsair XMS2 DDR2800
    -EVGA 8800GTX

    Getting about 30-40fps in the city (sometimes better, but then again some big chop spikes) and 50-70fps in the wild - both at 1600x1200. I kinda wish the game would perform even better than that, but I haven't really messed with the settings too much yet. I set it to High Quality, then reduced some of the ridiculous presets that makes. Then up'd some of the other things.

    the server is flame hammer, and it seems most everyone is on thestra with a few of us scatterd. I'm currently on qualia think Oasis of eq1 days only the size of kunakr or bigger. pac 3 sucked fi your having problems installing that just find the insall zip from thier tech forums. It will install the game from the laucnher takes about 6 hours dependnig on your connections and if it hangs up just restart it.

    Play what ever you want really. Were a bit light on the healing but that dosen't matter much at the lower levels usualy only takes 1 healer per group anyways.

    dont worry bout it meph since were on a regular server and not a faction pvp server u can group with anyone, its just depending on your race u might have to grind some faction with what ever contenent u move to at around lvl 13. or so. only takes a couple hours wich isn't bad if you ask me.

    The majority of the guild so far is in Thestra, but that doesnt mean you shouldn't join up. Eventually we'd like to have people on all 3 continents to make grouping easier.

    Personally, I'm brought my character to Thestra because it's the most complete continent. it was the first one developed and has recieved the most love from the devs. Qalia was second and Kojan was third and that shows in the amount of quests and missives available (Kojan has no missives currently).

    So, if you want to come to thestra, great. If you want to stay on Qalia thats cool too, we have members all over so I'd still join up because as we grow we'll have more people in more places so everyone can get a group.

    I've seen vanguard in stores here in England, but are there separate EU/US servers? What's the deal?

    Edit: Oh, apparently the collector's edition comes with 10 buddy keys. Anyone feeling generous?

    I think I might have some stuff for you. I've got a couple of weapons that are around 2-3 dps maybe? If memory serves, one is a martial weapon and the other is a claw. What's your character's name? I'll send them over next chance I can log in.

    I'm free today to meet up in some form.

    Something PA-related is fine with me, as long as it doesn't have the word "WANG" in the title. I'm a little tired of that after hanging out in SE++ so long.

    I'll brainstorm some other good obviously-PA names.

    It only costs 1s to register a guild charter, so I think we're good there. ;)

    I visited Thestra yesterday and was a bit overwhelmed (kind of like first visiting Stormwind from Teldrassil), so I recalled back to elf country where it's not so crazy.

    Can anyone else meet at 5pm EST today?

    Strato whats your chars name? I'm Xan Quan Kojani human if you wanna add me as a friend...also what lvl are you? If memory serves your a kojani also?

    Gahhh,
    Ok, i dloaded the game, last night. then guess what wont install. read the boards.. aahh do this download the launcher then install.. grr.. gf is going to want me to do stuff tonight last night was my night to do crap. it'll be done when i get off work here in japan. I hope, does it auto patch? I'd like to get on set all the settings to craptastic and play some. From what it sounds like its no big deal if i want to experiance the game decently i need to be in thestra or qualia and its no biggy what i make cause there are quests i can do to get non kos. So, healy tips are short supply i'm thinking disciple or bloodmage.. I dunno... though i'm not super great at healy types.. most mmo's i've played uo --- tankmage eq-- enchanter -- daoc --- bard ---- eq --- *shot myself and uninstalled it* --- WoW mage, warrior ---- and i'm unsure what to play was thinking a vulmane ranger, or a monk cause they look pimp... or like i said a bloodmage or disciple. I dont have asstons of time to try out lots of things I'm just looking for something fun.

    And I know you all are like who is this r-tard :P... Just my old forum lurking self looking for some bad ass folks to chill with...
    On On... err you probably dont know what that means...

    You are really fucking annoying, and you type like a dyslexic retard on AOL. That is why I said that. Either type like a normal human being, or take the teenage internets speak to a forum that is filled with that drivel.

    Hey, I get it. I was just asking a question of the folks playing now. I do not have the time to play to find out what is really a good class. So, besides "play what is fun" I was just curious as to what would work within the dynamic of PAers character selections, you know a role not quite fleshed out or filled at this time. That and I didn't want to start this mmo and get burnt before really having fun in it like so many others.

    There are separate servers for EU players, but you can choose a US server if you don't mind a bit of extra lag. At least, I assume you can, since as a US player I can choose the EU servers.

    hell yes it is

    but combat is still a bit newb'd... however if that's what we have to live with now so the servers aren't empty so be it

    my guild is filled with EQ people and we were kinda laughing at ourselves for complaining about how after a fight you are pretty much full HP/Mana no matter how the fight went... that would have been a dream come true in EQ and now we miss having to play more carefully

    I honestly can say I miss it, but for a different reason. What I enjoyed about downtime in games is that it encouraged more interaction with the community, since groups members would talk with one another while waiting for their health and mana to regen painfully slowly. In games such as WoW and EQII, where there really isn't any downtime, there were many times I would be in a group that wouldn't speak at all because they were too busy just killing constantly.

    Of course, in Final Fantasy XI, where the downtime is considerable at times, the people that would speak often sounded like their heads were filled with a thousand imp farts where their brain should be.

    I know what you guys mean about not being able to talk in groups.

    I've personally loved the lack of downtime, possibly cause I'm used to soloing. I wouldn't mind downtime in groups so long as enemies gave more exp to compensate.
