    @PMAvers Watched your VOD of your dungeon run. real shame the boss AI bugged out but that's a gamewide bug. Sometimes they catch the stupids and just stand there. Hopefully it'll be in monday's fix

    Would be nice, yes, since "that phase" that got skipped is the "holy shit what" moment of the fight.

    The VOD of the Siege adventure run looks like it came out okay, too. Although you can see me sucking it up badly because of the lag from the stream. Will probably go in and edit it into it's own video when it becomes available to.

    Funny, I ended up going on another one later on and got into one that was 4/5 waves complete and at 100% generator health... but one of the NPC grunts glitched out and couldn't be assigned a spot, so we couldn't finish it.

    Whenever we have a new tank, we don't tell them shit. We just say "pull" and watch the fireworks.

    Heph lasted much longer than the previous tanks!

    So is that why you were dying so much? Was the streaming killing your framerate?

    Framerate was fine, actually. It just was that I'd push a button, and the thing would actually happen a couple seconds later.

    ->Will the winter beta hoverboard in live be the same model as the one in beta?
    Long the same lines, will the highwayman costume and any other unlocks from beta or PTR (excluding Boom Boxes) be available for each character created or one per account?
    CRB_Beepz: Yep, the winter beta hoverboard is known as the "Flux Hoverboard", which is available for purchase on the mount vendors in the capital cities.

    This doesn't really answer the other question of where one gets the Highwayman set.

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

    On a no movement fight, TK Strike does clearly more dps given the cast time compared to the 3 GCDs you need to go through for Psychic Frenzy.

    But unlike WoW, assuming a no movement fight exists is laughable

    On the bright side though, Dominion explorer set is pretty nice. I already have the hat on my Spellslinger Jazera on ol' Pergo PvP.

    I always play pet classes, and one of the little things that always bugs me is how pets never get a swim animation, they usually just walk through the water behind you. So I was pleasantly surprised when my droids started spinning their legs like propellers when we got in the water.

    Well, finally managed to get a character to 20 and pub the two level 20 dungeons. I got fairly competent groups in both cases, and we pretty much breezed trough kel'voreth, with some hiccups on some of the more nasty trashpacks. The final boss bugged out, which sucked, so will have to run it again to see him. I absolutely loved the second bossfight, with the giant golem and bombs and stuff.

    Stormtalons lair was a bit more hairy, mostly due to the tank constantly attempting to fight enemies close to other enemies instead of pulling them back. the first boss murdered us the first time due to the giant telegraph in p2, some of us missed the safe spots. The air elemental bugged out, which sucked, and the final boss was pretty fun.

    Overall they were both amazing though. And if I can level purely on dungeons/adventures I just might.

    adventures are good for xp, dungeons not so much, but dungeons give some pretty decent level bracket loot, especially support powered gear. instances are also a good place to pick up signs of elements, which are needed for runes.

    Yeah, noticed I went from 16-20 in about 3-4 adventure runs, but barely got the half level I had left to 21 in the first instance.

    So, gave the OB a shot. Took a Spellslinger to around 10, hooked on the game. Will be preordering.

    I want to keep playing, but I hate the idea of throwing time into a character that will get deleted. Why is this not out now :?

    Put some amps in the guild bank.
    Any engineers might want to pick up the Try and Hurt Me! and Volatility Rising. The later of which is probably the only "mandatory" amp if you don't like using any of the builder skills like pulse blast and flak cannon

    I'm in much the same boat. I played enough to know I'll give it a whirl, plus I almost always give my money to MMO devs that try new things.

    Now, I'm pretty much just trying out each class to decide on which will be my main.

    Spellslinger is fun, but I'm pretty damn sure there'll be a billion of them (90% of which will be either Aurin females or Chua).

    Warrior is decent. I'm enjoying myself at any rate.

    Esper is, eeh. I like the concept, it just strikes me as so weird that in a game that advertises its action combat they'd have class that can't move.

    The rest I've yet to try. Will probably do Medic next.

    edit- Full disclosure, I only took those classes listed above to level 10.

    It's really weird, I started a spellslinger this morning and I'm pretty turned off.

    I didn't take the time to read about how it works, just kind of jumped in, and I didn't yet figure out how the resource works and what determines when I can use my skills. Other classes were immediately obvious, but spellslinger seems odd. The meter looks full at all times and hardly empties, but sometimes it empties and refills and I don't know why. I try to use the #2 skill and most of the time it doesn't work. Seems like it does work after I've been shooting with 1 for a while, like there's a meter that fills and then I empty by using 2 like with engineer, but I'm not seeing that meter.

    It just doesn't feel right to me, somehow.

    spellslinger's 2 skill is charged shot. It's a charge and release skill that charges up to 4 levels. Its cooldown is dictated by which level you fire it off from

    Apparently Esper opens up at 11.

    As for Warrior... Warrior is awesome! Tanking with an arm-cannon is cool.

    Their mechanic is called Surge.

    You activate it, and your skills do more damage/heal.

    The trick is to not just SURGE and hit all the buttons. But to use it tactically, surging certain skills, and building surge back up. You tick it on for a single attack, tick it off and fire something else, tick it back on to heal, back off... etc.

    Oh yeah, I should've known that, I saw it earlier.

    I'm kind of going too quickly on autopilot to level faster, and I haven't used a charge up skill with any other class yet, so.

    I was in the same boat about Esper until I watched Notorious Ben do some dueling and their kit can just change so dramatically due to the LAS that each Esper can be pretty unique.

    Yeah you have to wait till 11 to get that more mobile builder but it's close range and rather meh at actually building PP. Seeing 3 warriors almost bite it due to one telegraph during Arthil and my last adventure you'll be glad to have some range due to your light armor. There are all sorts of options that even being rather immobile during PvE isn't a huge deal to me anymore and I've made Esper my main for launch.

    Strike does so much damage, getting rooted for a second isn't that big a deal.
