Da shiny stuffz:
# Engage in four levels of RvR combat:

- Skirmishes: Incidental PvP combat
- Battlefields: Objective-based battles in the game world
- Scenarios: Instanced, point-based battles balanced with NPC Dogs of War
- Campaigns: The invasion of enemy lands culminating in the assault on their capital city

# Undertake a wide variety of PvE quest types related to an army's war efforts, including:

- Public quests that benefit from the participation of the entire army
- Conflict quests that pit players against an enemy with opposing goals
- Branching quests that let you choose the outcome of the quest and your reward
- Xmas quests that reward exploration with high value loot

# A robust combat system introduces Player Tactics (earned powers you equip prior to battle) and
Morale Skills (combat options that increase in power when the momentum of battle is in your favor).
# Player models that change to reflect the relative power of a character (i.e., Orcs grow in size and
Dwarfs' beards get longer). Customizable armor and a visual guild system allow a player to make their
character truly unique.
# Embark on an epic quest to complete the Tome of Knowledge and unlock Warhammer lore, detailed
monster information, and major story plotlines.

Da races which go boom:

races_empire_chaos.jpg
The human Empire is the largest realm in the Old World and the only one with a professional standing army. However, the Empire is under constant attack from other states and from corruption and depravity within its own borders. Recently, a strange plague has spread through the northern lands, changing those infected into twisted, murderous mutants.

Meanwhile, followers of the gods of Chaos gather in the frozen lands to the north of the vulnerable Empire. Worshipers of the god Tzeentch, seeking to take advantage of this new plague, launch a massive invasion of the Empire's northern border.

races_dwarf_greenskin.jpg
Unsure of its ability to withstand the Chaos invasion, the Empire has called upon its ancient allies, the proud and stalwart Dwarfs for aid. Bound by a two thousand year-old Oath to come to the Empire's defense, the Dwarfs send what they can, but the dwindling Dwarf civilization might well be facing its own extinction.

United under a Warboss and Shaman of unprecedented power, the Greenskins have launched a tremendous Waaagh! into the Dwarf lands. The Greenskins' great victory at the magnificent Dwarven city of Karak Eight Peaks might signal the last days of the Dwarfs.

races_elves.jpg
Anticipating only limited help from the Dwarfs, the Empire is forced to ask the proud High Elves of Ulthuan for help. The High Elves send what help they can, but they, too, face a dire threat to their own lands.

Having foreseen the Chaos invasion and predicted the Empire's plea for aid from the High Elves, Malekith, the Witch King of the Dark Elves, seizes the opportunity to strike at the High Elves. On the very day the High Elven ships set sail for the Empire, the Dark Elves suddenly strike the weakened lands of Ulthuan.
High Elves:

Swordmaster
Archmage
Shadow Warrior
????

Dark Elves:

Black Guard
Witch Elf
Sorcerer

    Hrm. Op needs more introduction and overview of RvR and Warhammer.

    A big giant picture of Paul Barnett might do the trick.

    but mosrissars makes for a better quote. still a good picture though.

    I can't wait to hear more about the dark elves abilities and morals and tactics and stuff. I hope they involve a lot of drugs and insanity.

    and I'll say it for the people who missed it but that war resource site has some nice info on it. the greenskin stuff sounds hilariously awesome too.

    I think they said that some self-buffs were triggered by drinking certain things. So you'd be applying poison to your stilettos and pour the same stuff down your throat.

    At least, I hope it'll be like this. I kind of fear they'll delete some of the less child-friendly stuff. Back in early beta of WoW they wanted to change the model of every player into that of a hot female when you drank enough rum, but that never went through. :(

    well thats witch elves at least. I hope all the dark elves at least get drug like tactics.

    White Dust - Increases initiative by 5 but lowers intelligence by 5.

    or something like that. point being slottable drugs because thats what dark elves do best

    Cha cha cha. We all know they are waiting for me to update my DxDiag before they send out guild e-mails. You all better hope I don't get pegged to work Saturday and Sunday else you're all fucked till next weekend.

    It would be funny if I get this computer but I don't for some strange and alcoholic reason get it running and hooked up to the internet so they continue to delay until I am ready.

    Funny in a ha ha way, not pitch fork and torch.

    see if you can somehow check if quest rewards (and maybe loot) are linked directly to your class. like if a choppa wanting to go through chaos lands will still get choppas and orcy armor for rewards, even from chaos quest givers.

    drugs for dark elves. are they useable in any way, shape or form? items, morals, tactics? not that I'm a druggy myself, its just one of these things I've never seen done in an MMO before.
