    I thought you could with the teleporter guy. Maybe I am mistaken though. Maybe you can't purchase houses though.

    Ladies.
  • onesixty2onesixty2 Registered User regular
    That would make sense, I do recall reading in the server selection it specifically said shards are only unique for housing lots.

    the only place shards matter is in housing, you can teleport to the 10 different shards to buy items from different zones but you can search all zones through any market explorer. If you're on Ywain 6 you can only buy houses in that zone, otherwise all PvE/PvP zones are combined.

    Oh wow, I forgot the market explorer was a thing. Easily my favorite design of a player market. Also the best housing system I've seen. I spent a lot of time exploring the neighborhoods with my Bard, checking out different guilds / players houses I knew.

    It isn't all about immediate gratification (wow / gw2 / eso mailboxes or mail system) it's nice to have an actual community feeling to it that required you to physically visit somewhere.

    So I'm deciding between Albion and Hibernia atm. I've always tried rolling Midgard, but never find myself making it to 50. This, ironically, doesn't encourage me to play Mid more. I think I have a lack of interest for most of their classes, though who knows what it looks like since ToA.

    Albion I'd likely play a Minstrel, Scout, or Cleric.
    Hibernia would probably be Druid, Warden, or Ranger.

    I generally enjoy healing, mostly because I don't trust pug healers to make intelligent decisions.. But I also love sniping that silly Kobold who likes to sit with his torch on.

  • bowenbowen How you doin'? Registered User regular
    I liked Albion's lore far better than any of the others, I always end up going back.

    Plus Tir-na-nog is a bitch to navigate.

    Ladies.
  • onesixty2onesixty2 Registered User regular
    This is very true, to both remarks.

    Albion was my first home. I remember killing skeletons in the graveyard behind the starter town for Briton's (Cottswald?) on launch day. I think my first characters were an Armsman, followed by a Friar and finally a Mercenary.

    God this game was such a huge part of my love for gaming. Still hold some very fond memories of BG skirmishes.

    Prydwen Keep I think it was.

    Don't try to kill those skeletons until you're like level 20ish.

    If you didn't play during minotaur, forget everything you ever knew. And definitely don't skip over the tutorial. Read everything. Don't pretend like you know things, you don't!

    Necros can obviously still solo purps, though, duh.

    i cannot believe i am reading a DAOC thread in 2014. Loved my minstrel and no game has ever equaled the Friar. I was there for launch, but left to beta SWG (back when it was great too!) ah memories...

    Farewell.

    Papa EA murders another.

    Does that mean broadsword is inheriting the license for the time being?

    Broadsword has been in charge of DAoC since the start of February I believe, so no rough transition is in store.

    So the new Champ weapon gear is being shown off, amazing is one word to describe it.
    Obtain one of the 250+ brand new or revamped Champion Abilities and one of the 150+ Champion Weapons on your quest for Champion Level 15!

    Brave the depths of the Darkness Falls RvR dungeon to experience new encounters and find new rewards!

    This patch is currently being tested on pendragon.

    Cl15 is out. The red seals needed to buy CL15 weapons require 60+ man Darkness Falls raiding groups that have to battle it out with the other 60+ raids from other realms.

    The seals cannot be traded, but the new weapons can.

    Also, for about an hour after the game went live, they forgot to fix the diamond seal trading npc that was giving out unlimited glass and dragon scales. Oops.

    I'm sad that I played this game for 2 months and then just went back to WoW because I just don't have the time I want or used to have to play it anymore.

    Well..I remembered what email address I used to setup my Daoc account... yup.. my characters are still there... dont know if I want to actually check it out, last played shortly after Shrouded Isles.

  • bowenbowen How you doin'? Registered User regular
    Seriously, Mythic/Broadsword ... make this game F2P and I'll be able to probably get back into it! I'll even buy things in a store like armor and weapons!

    yea, that surprised me as well.. they still have a subscription based game. i'll likely install and give it a go, I got 7 free days to walk around.

    well, looks like new MMOs have spoiled me, was cool to run around with the old Spirit Master again but damn... I wouldn't be able to play this again.

    Take any 50 to DF raids and acquire blood seals. Trade 24 seals for weapons, which most sell for 50-100 plat. Buy a cottage for 1 plat and set up the consignment merchant.

    Sell the items, find a template you can afford, have the items crafted or buy them from the housing merchant.

    I just temped out my NS, but I am terrible at finding solos in NF. Guess practice makes perfect.

    Just temped my Molvik NS, cost about 180 plat. One expensive template for sure.

    That's up to the mods. I think its against the rules of the forums.

    I subbed to regular DaoC and Molvik has had very sparse action. Broadsword chopped up the game until it is almost unrecognizable.

    Terrible thing to happen, but the balance patch was released when Warlords of Draenor released, so its not like its a sudden change.

    I'm amazed there are people still playing Live.

    chopped up? in what way? do you have a link to some patch notes? i like to keep tabs on this lil guy since DAOC was my very first MMO

    They rewrote a lot of the solid groundwork mythic made. They redid the necromancer and several other classes like the Norse Stealther melee, and just about every other class to make them worth playing.

    The worse changes they made for me personally, was making Mastery of Stealth baseline for rangers and making Nightshades crawl if they are moving in stealth.
