    The GWF is not a bad class. It has some great utilities and such. It's just a really late bloomer and could use some tweaking.

    Soot paused for a moment. Unsure why her horse looked so worried:

    Would it be worth it to roll a second character just to farm crafting?

    What is this I don't even.

    My gut says probably not because so a good lot of the task slots are tied to both crafting advancement as well as character advancement. So it would be a lot of effort for not too much return I think.

    It might be worth setting up an alt to farm leadership tasks for diamonds if the exchange lets you transfer them between characters like in sto. (Make an offer on one character, then cancel it and re-claim the diamonds on another).

    I love my cleric. Orbital strike daily power, railgun mounted fist strike encounter. I even have lasers that I can use to melt or reconstruct faces with! Now where is my kobold race? That would literally be the only thing I'm willing to pay an ungodly amount of money for.

    I actually started using the chains encounter instead of the beam. I find it much easier to use than lining up folks for the beam. I was actually suprised the damage was as good as it is since it is also a CC power.

    You know what I wish my Cleric could do?

    Hit things. With a hammer.

    Is that so much to ask?

    Listen, you'll shoot lasers out of your grandma's sterling silver vanity mirror and you'll like it dammit!

    Which reminds me I've never seen a GWF with anything but an S-word. Do they have other weapons?

  • KyanilisKyanilis Registered User regular
    Each class is limited to their specific weapon, as far as I've seen at least.

    People keep saying there are, but they are far and few between. The only one I've ever personally seen is the Ogre Club (which looks like the club... Ogres use). It's a lvl 16ish blue i think. And it looked like a tiny 1 handed weapon (when I had it in closed beta).

  • SeidkonaSeidkona Had an upgrade Registered User regular
    Even if they just release weapon skins or something that'd be really cool. Of course a weapon skin pack would probably be random and cost $20.

    I have seen a hammer for one of the classes. Was a drop during a dungeon run, didn't pay attention to it since it was unusable for my class and there were mobs needing stabbing.

    Ran the Lair of the Pirate King last night. We started out with a GF, two GWF, two CW and my TR, aka as no healer. The tank dropped along with one of the wizards and we ended up with another rogue and a cleric for replacement. One of the mini-bosses murdered everyone but me, next one was pretty easy. Final boss overwhelmed us with adds on the first attempt.

    Next attempt, the GWFs stuck to the boss, and the rest of us dealt with adds. Went much easier.

    Know Badwrong has been saying this, but the key to handling most of these dungeons is controlling the adds.

    As far as the other weapons question goes, I think I've seen GWF with a great axe.

    I'm enjoying my GWF so far, don't really know what would need to be changed. I haven't played any other classes though so I don't really know what I'm missing I guess. I seem to kill things fast enough, and if you spend a bit of time actively dodging you don't take TOO much damage. You definitely need a friendly amount of potions on hand though. Main complaint is how few moves I have so far that hit in arcs. You would think all of them would, being as you wield a sword as tall as you are.

    Damage and traits boosting damage were nerfed all around (as well as the radius and level of some aoe skills). Like sure strike used to be aoe with around a 45 degree frontal cone, and you used to start with the 180 aoe skill instead. Water under the bridge though if I can get a Great Axe and keep that skin for other weapons.

    I love the Foundry and the many great content this will bring. Did the Blacklake District Quest "I am Slayer" today, which was really a lot more fun and epic than any of the regular in game stuff so far, Looks like it won the competition as well. Really sweet idea and looking forward to do some stuff on my own some day.

    The Hidden Blade (I think?) was similar

    It was so well done, it put the in-game quests to shame

    Yeah I liked Hidden Blade a lot. I'll definitely be playing the sequel, but I'm waiting until he has finished it before I try it out.

    I really want to try that Foundry dungeon that is so high-rated, but I'm not quite into the level range yet.

    My friend is playing a GWF right now and he has what some people might call a mace. But it looks more like a bunch of bones duct taped together. It dropped off in the first dungeon.

    Maybe later they'll add a more warrior priestly like Cleric. Who doesn't need to kill them with lasers because he can kill them with a hammer of justice. He could even fill out as another tankish like role!

    Sadly, much like character creation, level editing, and book writing, I can never get whats in my head onto the medium that I'm working with. I'll still give it a try, though.

  • LibrarianLibrarian The face of liberal fascism Registered User regular
    Just doing The Hidden Blade, that one is really nice as well.

    The Capcom arcade beatemups and the Dark Alliance games are some of the best D&D videogames ever made in my estimation, and Neverwinter carries on that proud tradition.


    Whelp i guess I know what game i'm downloading tonight.

    This is open beta as in no wipes right?

    Cryptic really should put the answer to this somewhere prominent on the launcher, as it is a question that gets constantly asked in Zone chat, along with "I'm a rogue how do I stealth?" and "Why do they call it the Xbox 360?"

    Hey that is actually a good question, where DO you get the pirate hat from?

    I logged in for 15 min towards the end of the stress test they did for that hat.

    The "Founder's Chest" has it. I never tried that, since I'm not a founder.

    There are 5 Classes right now. Guardian Fighter (Tank, active block), Control wizard (cc), Trickster Rogue (DPS), Devoted Cleric (Heals) and Great Weapon Fighter (Hell if I know, DPS maybe, off tank, has a big sword.)

    Classes will be released for free as they make them. There is no type of time schedule for them as of this time. We do know of two more being worked on that were mined from the beta files. These being Archer Ranger and Scourge Warlock.

    I agree with @Echo's suggestion that we need a new OP for this, one that preferably has more up to date info (classes, currency, server, guild name, roster, that goddam link to the online crafting thing that I can never find and keep forgetting to bookmark)

    I nominate Not Me to make it

    As the guild leader, I agree Arch should make the next OP. Let it be so.

    Actually I am just kidding.

    I don't mind doing it but the level of detail I want to put into it plus the fact that I am working late tonight means I won't be able to get to it until later tonight. So if someone wants to get it done before then be my guest. If not I'll just plan on working on it and posting it up later tonight.
