    Well boo. I'm out of town until Sunday afternoon. So I'm going to miss out on some pretty sweet leveling time.

    Of the many characters I've leveled, the only one I know I'm sticking with is Selani - Level 13 Valkyrie. Beyond that I'm still trying to figure it out. But you'll all be way ahead of me by the time I get back. ><;

    I still cannot decide what to put my time into. I keep trying to go into the BG's since I don't know where to find the super xp only to find stealth gankers waiting every time. :( I'm sure when you get back you'll fall into altitis like myself and have three of four characters leveling at once.

    Well do you guys actually use your weapons? Because weapons don't glow unless you're actually fighting with them, which is why glowy isn't quite as cool with a caster. But I know that trainers give you glowey weapons now-a-days.

    So last night me and jaggy finally got some pvp action in Wilton (30-34) and I gotta say, I was rusty. My poor skalds point setup is pure speed bot with higher Battlesong then sword but I still have lots of fun. Its amazing to see how scary a Bone Dancer is with a skald making him run fast and breathe under water.

    We need to get some toons to level 24 and get them into thid so we can roll together guys.

    Also, if you like to trade skill take one up. Money seems fairly plentiful since you buy all your equipment with Aurulite peices from the vendors in the Kobold Undercity. Plus if people take up armour and weapon crafting I can keep working with my Rune Master who is a spell crafter that can imbue player made weapons to have wicked magical buffs.

    Also also, I will be farming Aurulite with my BD to help the guild, so if your around level 10 and you need some equipment hollar at me and I'll see what my Aurulite stock is like to get you a full suit +weapon.

    * What is Aurulite? - Aurulite is a little crystal that can be found in some instanced dungeon content in Catacombs. They drop off npc's and can be used to buy everything that you can fit in your Inventory window. What makes them good you say? Well they're all magical items that when you wear a full suit your primary stats for your class will be far beyond the max cap (Your skills are capped at a certain point so you can't have 300 Strength on a level 10). For the average gamer like us Aurulite keeps us from farming gold to buy player made items then getting them spell crafted for mega bucks.

    I started to do Tailoring, then I remembered how god-awful painful crafting in DAoC is. And you can't make magic items with normal craft skills. You have to make base stuff, the get someone else to spell craft it.

    When I played DAoC back in the day, I really didn't focus on SCing stuff til late into my 40s. I just made do with dropped stuff.

    For a caster this is probably a valid thing to do. For a melee character... armor is more important to them.

    Thats where Aurulite fills the void. My RM can SC. I think he has like 300 points in SC.

    Also; rape rape in 35-39 BG. My Rune Master is dead every 10 seconds. The place is archer heaven since they can stealth up to range then hit me with a 600+ dmg shot, which equals my dealth in nearly 1 hit. :(

    Every time I got a rez folk would start buffing me and I'd throw up my bubble then KAPOW! Super awesome magic shot goes right through your bubble and hits you for 690 damage. You die cause you have 684 health. Damn you!

    back in the day if you died in one hit it wouldn't unstealth the person who did the killing blow. So rogues would go running aroun the fronteirs killing low lv people in 1 shot and never unstealthing.
    Granted we weren't worth any rps but hey, stopping our xps was always a bitch.

    My suggestion when playing a squishy is to always hang wayyyy back, then when you see a target (say some elf ranger who gets a little too close) you run up real fast, put a couple nukes in their bum, then run like hell!

    That super kapow shot takes 6s to line up, and 90% of people in Molvik are braindead and attack the closest, brightest coloured thing they can see. So many times today you'd see 10 Hibs all attacking the bright pink troll while 10 feet away 2 shamen and a healer calmly sit and heal him.

    And if you can get a roaming group, you'll have much more luck than at standoffs (at least if you aren't RC spec).

    See you out there. :twisted:

    So my DAoC experience thus far (since reactivating, of course) has gone thusly:

    1) roll a skald, get to 6 - "this is boring, I want to be overpowered."
    2) think, "What class did I use to hate most back in the day"
    3) roll a BD, "ZOMG THIS CLASS IS TEH HAWT," power my way to mid 30s
    4) dominate BGs for a bit
    5) level to 35, try out Molv for a while
    6) seemingly die in multiples of two (honestly, how many times do archers find it necessary to kill me when they obviously saw me just get rezzed)
    7) roll a hunter so I can find out (again, as I already had a RR6 ranger) how satisfying it is to plink helpless casters from afar
    8) to be continued...

    God I love this game. Hopefully I can pry myself away from it long enough to finish my grad school projects this term.

    You're screwed. Just give up school.

    I agree that skald is kind of boring. I'm pretty sure mine leveled up back in the day running task dungeons in groups just cause people wanted speed song to get back to the task giver over and over.

    Skalds can be borning yes, but in most bgs every group wants / needs a skald. Thats why I have a thidranki skald.

    So I saw my first little bit of RvR over the weekend, in the Hills of Claret.

    First I exchanged deaths with the scythe wielding Hibbie class, whatever they are. Buggers have a root, so would root my pet and rush me. I got her a couple times, she got me a couple times. Sorta fun.

    Then I got in the group that took down the Claret Keep. Good times. Killed a handful of Albs who tried to defend. Got a lvl of the keep taking "quest".

    Then got in an xp group killing those scrag things. Another level.

    Decided I wanted a couple more lvls, so bummed around Catacombs and Task Dungeons killing stuffs. Hit 16 before going to bed last night. And I'll have a free 17 waiting for me the next time I log in.

    The free level thing doesn't expire or anything, does it? As I might not be able to log in tonight.

    How does the free level thing work, btw?

    I was a lazy bum all weekend. Just sat on my couch playing Overlord, never once logged into DAoC. :(
    Actually all of the times I was going to play DAoC I went looking for a boxed 5th Anniversary copy around town. I found one at GameStop for $30...but didn't want to spend that much. So eventually I found it for $23 shipped on Buy.com Should I purchase it? As in will a substantial number of us still be playing after the 14 day trial?

    Well I'm not on the 14 day trial, I am fully resubbed so I will still be here. I also brought up the point that we should expand the guild with non pa-ers so if you know anyone from some place else that doesnt come to PA tell'em to game on.

    The free level thing works by every 4 or 5 days you get a free level. Its defently not auto xp mode, but its nice to get a full free level when you need 60 billion xp till your next ding.

    Man, DAoC, what a fun game. I am resubscribing because of this thread.

    I have the anniversary edition, so patching shouldn't take long.

    I do know though, that I have Albs on Gareth, if I make a Middie on another server in the cluster, is it possible to switch over to Gareth somehow and get in the guild and everything?

    The classic servers are clustered, so you can be on any of the three Classics and still be playing with us. Its no worrys at all.

    If you want to kill us on your Albs all you have to do is log off, wait less then five minutes and log into your alb characters. :winky:

    LOTRO was fun, but it was so to slow paced for me to ever stay with. DAOC is the perfect MMO in my opinion. Based heavily on PVP action and every step of your characters life you're having items and xp thrown at you in bunches! Mythic doesn't want you to spend months grinding to get into Frontier RVR. They want you to spend a month getting to know your characters as you rampage your way through the Battle Grounds then get into the frontiers.

    I hope to god they setup WAR just like this. Don't grind for ages on end - learn your class then get to the front.

    Full account here.
    I've been fully subscribed since the 1st week of Release :) .

    And I think the /free thing works something like as long as you grind a lvl every 4 days, you get a free one too.
    I can see it being very helpful in the later levels.
    Here's the Herald's breakdown: http://support.darkageofcamelot.com/kb/article.php?id=798

    And here's the day listing:
    http://guilds.camelotherald.com/realms/index.php?server=Gareth&realm=&v=&t=other

    Oh, I guess it's 5 days.

    I recall at one point it was 24 hours. That may have been during Catacombs Beta though.
