    I hit 15 and want my mount but when I click to buy it I get "HousingError: Housing action failed." This is troubling.

    Try /reloadui or relogging. It's a bug either way so report it with /bug and hope they catch it

    Wow umm, my medic kind of all the sudden has almost 1500 battleground rating.

    Thats interesting.

    I went back and played a Stalker after not really feeling like I was 'clicking' with my Spellslinger. I like the feel of it a lot more, as far as abilities that go off when I hit them rather than doing the 'casting' thing that I guess comes with a class that is supposed to be some kinda mage. :pensive:

    Didn't really try anything else, might do that in some future event... probably whenever they make the tutorial skippable.

    Agh, I started a Stalker Explorer near the end of the beta and got logged out just as I was about to reach the top of the Aurin tree.

    Oh well, at least the Spellslinger was pretty fun to play.

    that really is a bummer that you didn't get to play, moocow, but the support crew should be able.to square you away pretty quick now. This is probably the first weekend they dealt with so many people instead of just the beta testers

    I did this a ton with my first house as Beezel can attest. There were wires crisscrossing the floor and all manner of books and papers strewn amidst boxes and haphazard furniture.

    I played a medic this weekend and got to 15, at first I was really enjoying it, but playing solo I felt my dps was fairly lackluster and was struggling to kill a few things, just like everyone else I'm probably going to play a stalker after the wipe, because I enjoy big damage numbers.

    Yeah, late last night I abandoned my Stalker to give Engineer an actual fair shake.

    I think I'm going to make a petless flak-cannon build.

    Because I'm a beautiful unique snowflake (and everyone else is rolling a Stalker).

    Botless builds are fun for support/flak. Especially when you start stacking absorbs into your build/ability tiers. You basically become the unstoppable juggernaut.

    I've got an action set now which seems like it'll do just that.

    Tons of threat generation, lots of absorb and group absorb.

    If I'm understanding these abilities right (and I'm probably not since I haven't played with many of them), if I can get a group to stay within 10m of me at all times, we'll all have infinite absorb and I'll be the harbinger of awesome.

    The one downside to flak is that you become immobile, but... It's a zero c/d channel, so you can just cancel and restart it... Kind of moot.

    Well, seeing as that's a weekend and I have weekends off....

    I fully intend to be an Engineer Tank, I just need to have more time to see how tanking in this game works. I used to be a really awesome Draenei Paladin back in the old WoW days.

    I see most people aren't interested in Exiles, but if there is an Exile guild, I'll be a Granok, since I made a guy that looks so much like my old Paladin. If I'm Dominion though, I'll be a Mechari all the way.

    My wife is also playing, so she'll go along with whatever. She's still deciding what class she likes best.

    You can move while shooting flak cannon. In fact the innate removes the movement slow on shots fired altogether when you pop exo suit. Engineers are in an interesting spot right now since it's the only class currently that can run without a builder and still be viable. Most of their procs and effects depend on maintaining a sweet spot on their resource between 30 and 70 volatility. Recursive Matrix imparts a 2k health absorb shield to everyone that stays near you when you pop it, on top of the deflect/cc resil boost. But only if you pop it between 30-70 volatilty. Bio Shell and Ricochet become instant casts between 30-70 vol. It adds a bit of urgency/skillful play from staying "In the Zone" so to speak.

    I decided to go ahead and spring on this seeing as GMG had a 20% off so got the deluxe at that. Just watching the gameplay from the devspeak videos it looks all good.

    Probably Chua Esper and Mordesh Medic but will see what I take a liking to on one of these beta weekends.

  • SaldonasSaldonas See you space cowboy...Registered User regular
    Not sure if I missed it in the OP, but could someone kind of explain the AMP system? At first I thought it was just a simple passive system, but apparently you can find/buy new AMPs to use?

  • BeezelBeezel There was no agreement little morsel..Registered User regular
    AMPs are wildstar's take on talent systems. The funny thing about them is very few of them are straight up passive boosts to stats. Everything from the second tier out confers either an ability or some kind of effect to your attacks depending on combat state. The caveat is the further out you go from the center, the more the AMPs cost. Yes they can be found as random drops. But they can also be acquired from rep vendors while leveling. Even bought/sold via the commodities exchange.

  • Anon the FelonAnon the Felon In bat country.Registered User regular
    It is a passive system, but it passively provides new abilities to existing actions.

    Like, when you get stunned, now you gain X. Or when you do Y, Z happens too.

    In T2 and T3, you have to find the physical amp item to unlock the node, so you can get the new passive. This will create a push for loot grinding, and create an economy of build (certain Amps will be expensive since they are viewed as "optimal").

    You can also unlock a new active ability per branch by going to T3 in the respective amp branch.

  • SaldonasSaldonas See you space cowboy...Registered User regular
    Cool, thanks. Now I gotta figure out what's needed for making a sweet engineer tank.

  • DarkewolfeDarkewolfe Registered User regular
    AMPs are a way fucking less efficient way to handle talents that makes trying to set up a build a nightmare of reading shit that you mostly won't use.

    :P

    What is this I don't even.

  • Anon the FelonAnon the Felon In bat country.Registered User regular
    What?

    No?

    I mean... It's not a talent system, comparing it to WoW's talent system is a fool's errand. This is a different character building system. Like, it's just different. If anything, the skill's and the ability point system is what's emulating WoW's Talent system that you're familiar with.

    The Amp system is more akin to GW2's trait system. You're picking a few stat's to bump, but mostly altering the focus of your play. You can create an amp path that makes you want to take hits to gain buffs, or since your skills focus on making defects happen... When it does, other cool stuff fire's off.

    Amp's are the "complementary" bit. You build your skill set to play a certain way, then you start using Amps to really hone your playstyle. Now when your stalker goes stealthy, all the other stuff happens. Or you're trying to balance your class mechanic around a certain point, to get extra buffs and heals.

    The shit you're reading that you're not using is actually a different playstyle, probably one you aren't interested in.

  • BeezelBeezel There was no agreement little morsel..Registered User regular
    Yeah it's character building and didn't exist at all until sometime near the end of beta 2 into beta 3. Originally There was a purely stat based unlock system in play (this still exists but the bonuses you get now are way different and centered around "You now do X better") The feedback they got stated that there wasn't enough meaningful choices into how you built your class because all anyone was doing was stacking their "best" stat and getting all of the abilities they wanted

    AMPs are passive boosts to your character. Thats it.

    1st tier is stats, raw and unadulterated. They all cost 1 point.

    2nd and 3rd tiers (costing 4 and 6 points respetively) are passive boosts but with requirements. Ranging from just stat boosts that only work... sometimes to changes to certain skills to affects on your unique class aspect, they all gives bonuses you can choose to be aware of and go for, or just assume they will be there.

    3 of the trees (pure assault, pure support, and utility) have abilities in them. They are tier 3, in the middle of 2 others, and only cost 2 points.

    As convulted and confusing as they might seem, for the most part if you just pick your role and dump all the points into the 'main' slice for it (assault or support) you will be fine. For the most part, thats usually a right build anyway subtracting 1 or 2 underwhelming skills. Oh, and you always take the 15% CD reduction in utility for 3 points. ALWAYS.

  • NotoriusBENNotoriusBEN Registered User regular
    There is an amp ability in the esper attack tree that lets you do more damage as long as you are at 100% health. And then some others that proced off of criting or even taking damage. And that was just the assault wedge. I haven't even looked at the defense wedge, but it was stuff that let me maintain focus for gobs longer than I should be able to.

    I also like how none of my esper attacks require focus, only healing does. This lets me churn and burn like a pyromancer back in WAR.
