    So I guess the ARG is done and I get to pick a weapon now. I want the Chaos Focus because I am going to roll Chaos primarily but the Sword looks really cool.

    Na, just go to the site and solve the puzzles. http://www.mmorpg.com/puzzle.cfm

    I give up way too quickly with these things. I always get one or two steps away from solving it and then get frustrated.

    I started off with a trickster and man, the sound effects for pistols are *terrible* there's some kind of high pitched whine when they fire that makes my ears hurt. Switching weapons solely due to that =0

    Is that not just the double-shot attack you start with? It also looks like the pistols are sprouting sparklers, oddly.

    Could just quickly make a fresh character with pistols primary, and see how the other two abilities are. That shouldn't take too long and you can delete 'em right after.

    The Kiss of the Revenant ARG is finished now, you can complete the ritual and enter your email to get the stuff when they release it

    Stretch goals were hit that allow everyone to get all nine Shadow-Bound weapons instead of just one, so it's definitely worth doing

    Nah. It's more that a lot of people are fighting over whatever bandwidth Funcom has available for pushing the patch out.

    I feel like I'm missing something but how so you play the final game on the arg? I see the concept easily but, at first I picked all of one symbol and it showed me a red dot on the first so I assumed that was correct...then it disappeared when I picked the same symbol again, what represents a successful guess?

    Its like the old game mastermind. Start off by inputting all of one symbol, to narrow down what symbols and how many are in the solution. Once you know the numbers and symbols used its just a matter of putting them in the right spots with process of elimination.

    Though I did find this on a forum.
    Shotgun SW NE SW S N
    Pistol N NE S SE NE
    Blade S NW N SW NW
    Rifle SE N SW S NW
    Hammer N S SW S NW
    Blood S SW NW SW NW
    Ele SE S SW SW N
    Fist NE NE NW SE SW

    I can confirm that the pistol one is the same as I got

    I really want to record a full play through of SWL but all I want to do now is play, I don't want to setup the recording nonsense. I am so torn.

    If you have nvidia, perhaps you can just toggle some settings with GFE/ShadowPlay?

    I'm not sure if the game servers are actually online yet. Perhaps all that's been done is pushing out the patch?

    Shadowplay is really weird for me. I can never tell if I am recording or not. ShadowPlay will show green but not be recording.

    Edit: Since I don't have a bunch of time to play I am just gonna goof off and record up to where I leave off at tonight.

    I updated my nvidia stuff and shadowplay is super easy now. Recorded an hour of stuff, basically all of the tutorial. I'm worried I might need to do it all again with the in game sound turned down.

    Can't wait to get those shadow weapons though.

    So dungeon rewards are really fucking terrible

    I went through the first dungeon and got nothing but the weapon/talisman xp items

    Conversely, I want all the weapon/talisman distiliates.

    So much stuff to level up. Especially the extra junk bait talismans you've gotta level up to fuse to increase the quality on your main ones. They're basically wild cards, and actually I think are a bit more valuable to get when leveling than the random junk talismans you used to get and won't be using for very long.

    Especially since those items add XP to the item, and don't cost anima shards to assemble.

    Question: Do any of the deck outfits transfer over?

    Apparently not. Some of the faction deck outfits are now awarded for "mastering" each weapon, but while the outfits are selected from amongst the OG TSW faction decks, they are the same regardless of the faction you pick, just colored to match - and they are also discreet clothing pieces rather than just a single uniform.

    Presumably, more faction outfits will show up as they add more weapons to the game.

    I made a character today and set it up with the warlock class for the blood/rifle pairing. I'm intending to unlock the "hail of bullets" attack tomorrow for use with those shadow weapons. AOE multi-hit attack. It hits up to six enemies within five meters four times (five times with passive talent). I'm going to be throwing dice at the enemies, and by dice I mean my revenant army.

    I don't think this will work out the way you're imagining- depending on how they've decided that procs work with multihit attacks. Last thing they did in TSW was change procs to only proc once from such abilities.

    I'm kind of impressed that funcom banned people who were using the exploit they just fixed.

    When I got on for a brief period yesterday, it was hilarious how many people were complaining bitterly about their lost Aurum.

    I've done
    • 2 full runs of Polaris
    • 2 partial runs of Polaris (full dungeon, but only opening some chests)
    • 1 full run of Hell Raised

    I have gotten 1 1-star Amulet. EVERYTHING ELSE has been distillates.
