    Is the crafting fix going to normalize the location using additives places your marker? because boy is it annoying when the exact same combo places the marker an inch to the left of the goal.

    Doing some levelling on Exiles side as I want to catch up with a friend of mine who rolled Exile so we can experiment with Dungeons and...I actually like the Exile starting zones and quests much more than Dominion, huh. Like, there's an actual storyline that I'm following, whereas I never really understood what the hell I was doing Dominion Side, aside from the fact that Mondo Zax would try and kill me now and again.

    We'll see how long this blog lasts

    Weaponsmithing is broken, but it's mostly functional barring a few tech tree hiccups.

    Well, I just completed the first desert zone on the Dominion side with an Esper. Blade dance is pretty fun, yo.

    *edit* Aw, I need to be a scientist to open this door? Then what's the point of being an explorer?

    fix for crafting is on track for Monday

    Ugh. So the first weekend of open beta is going to feature broken armor crafting professions. That's not going to look good. I'm just glad the weaponsmiths and technologists are working fine.

    Open beta is still beta.

    Let's be realistic here really...if the open beta lasted until release on the very last day of it would you still be saying that?

    So many people would these days.

    When they patch, sometimes things break in unexpected ways. Not for nothing but they have an extremely fast turnaround on issue resolution for what it's worth. The crafting thing is a new bug. And more than likely it'll be fixed by monday. It's partially fixed now but they require extra changes to be made that they couldn't hammer out before friday ended.

    Pretty sure that's why it's called a beta? Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, betas were considered testing periods where things weren't expected to work.

    a tad curious if this is just me: I've been trying out warriors of different races to see which ones I prefer

    have noticed the Mechari, Granok and Draken have a cool "on guard" pose (that is sword in-front of them, not sure if I'm sure if "on guard" is the right term)

    whereas Mordesh and I think Humans/Cassians have it where they are holding to their side (side of their gut) - which doesn't look nearly as cool and kinda turns me off to playing a warrior of that race.

    Like the Draken have this need savage way of carrying themselves while inbetween making a movies, Granok just look hardcore/solid and Mechari look samurai-esque.

  • NoizlanifNoizlanif MMO-Whore Registered User regular
    Ah man, if mechari held the swords over the head all the time like a samurai, I'd give all my dicks for that.

    @UncleSporky‌ what server & faction you playing on for beta?

    I am playing on Mikros as Exile. I've got a level 23 medic named Gantz, and I just started a guild with him for PA peeps who want to play in a beta Exile guild!

    Sorry that the server is kind of random, I didn't see the server selection option when I first created the character. But anyone is invited to join me there if you'd like. When the game leaves beta we'll most likely be on the same server as the Dominion PA guild.

    The trouble is I am leveling a new character named Flintwick, and I'm having a hard time inviting him to the guild so I can make him an officer. Another officer might be able to help me with that, unless there's just a level requirement for joining a guild I don't know about.

    Make an Exile on Mikros and message Gantz or Flintwick and I'll add you!

    and I think a couple of us have made out own sad little one man guilds on Nexus.

    You guys sure are sticking to that "exile" way, making your own one man guilds, trailblazing for yourselves. I'm sure Mondo wouldn't be too mad if you converted!

    After all, test subject is also a solitary lifestyle. And then you die.

    I don't really have a preference for side - I like humans (who doesn't) and Aurin and Draken. So, I'm set.

    Granok I might try, Mordesh are freaks. Chua are amusing but not something I'd play, and I might do a Mechari at some point.

    Welp, I fucked up last night making my character, so I now have to make a new one on Nexus. I just wish there was a race I wanted to ESPer on. Also, I guess I should replay, just because I missed most of the lore.

  • NotoriusBENNotoriusBEN Registered User regular
    remember kids, the devs *love* to fuck with MMO expectations.

    too bad, Heph didn't get to see the penultimate OH SHIT moment of kel'voreth.
    Something for Live I guess. also, I finally figured out how clense works, so those darkwitches aint too much trouble now... finally...

    fuck the new stun mechanic, let me mash the button, because I do not not if holding it down is working when hit by the mega stuns of the darkwitches.

    I rolled a dominion lady cause that's where everyone is, but I really don't get the appeal of having/playing a faction of comic book villains.

    Stalker is at least trivially more entertaining to play than Esper because you're actually allowed to move with your 1 skill.

    I will never stop complaining about that Esper first impression.

    My favorite musical instrument is the air-raid siren.

    I would totally be okay with it if they swapped the levels you get TK Strike and Psychic Frenzy.

    Although why you would ever use TK Strike afterwards when you get it, one doesn't know.

    EDIT: Oh, yeah, got the renown hoverboard and the front/rear Rosie frill bits. Havn't gotten the side yet, need to group more.

    Rolled a mechari engineer on Nexus, also named "Darmak." If I could get a clan invite, that'd be swell thanks!

    Also, this game is surprisingly good. When I first saw it I thought, "Eh, another WoW clone" but gave it the benefit of the doubt and wow. I really like the setting, the art, the music (just got off the starter island and this town's music with the chanting is rad as fuck), everything. I like that I'm an explorer and I do one thing, but the other paths look really cool too. So do the other classes, but I love using guns and robots and shit.

    ..I want mind control guns!

  • HounHoun Registered User regular
    If you haven't tried playing with a controller, I'd recommend it. It's not perfect, but once set up right, it's pretty fun! I hope official controller support makes it in so I don't have to muck with add-ons and joy2key, though.

  • StericaSterica Yes Registered User, Moderator mod
    That could work pretty well.

    Left/Right Trigger for resource builder/spender
    Left Right Bumper for major cooldowns
    Face buttons for other skills
    D-Pad for consumables/gadget.

    Only sticky wicket is Sprint, which is a simple enough workaround I'm sure.

  • HounHoun Registered User regular
    The preset I got from here puts sprint on LB on your standard 360 controller, and that works well.
