    Well, I finally found the class I decided to settle on as main (necro) and it appears (though this could be standard internet whining) that FC decided to nerf them into the ground. I'm going to try it out firsthand before making any rash decisions but this makes me nervous.

    It wouldn't really bother me but I figure I have 4 right now, I'm hoping for a 5th. I know I get one more version of Swift strikes I figure that comes at 80. And if I planned out my feat points awesomely I'll get full version of the feat that gives reduced party threat.

    I believe they buffed them today, since they already sucked before, but I have no idea having not played the class and the boards are 90% of the time completely fucking wrong about a class (Like assassins needing a buff I own npc bitches).

    Sounds like Necro's lost 40-60% of damage from both their direct casts and their pet damage. ToS's lost a large part of their AoE ability and what's left is pretty broken due to the "fix" exposing the retarded "corpses are valid/active targets" bug that affects a number of other things.

    I have a 45 necro from 100% soloing, and it's not particularly OP or UP in pve. no pvp experience. I really don't understand those patch notes though. a strange mix of buffs and nerfs, and probably a nerf overall, to the class most people agreed was the most underpowered.

    For some reason I doubt I'll cry much about tempests of set who could take on mobs up to 6 levels above them 3 at a time.

    As a level 69 (teehee) Bear Shaman I have never ripped anyone's head off. I have smashed many a head, as well as smashing many people in the balls, but no head ripping.

    Oh, they definitely needed to be toned down. Though I think they should have changed the number of targets to 4/6 instead of 3/5 on Storm Field.

    But there is a difference between capping an ability for balance and fucking up its targeting due to Funcom's incompetent QA. It's sad there is so many fundamental features that are broken or non-existent with more added every time they patch. This could be a great game, but this past month has given me little confidence that Funcom can get their shit together before it's too late.

    If anyone is looking for a guild that is fairly active you are welcome to come hang with the Triple Deuces on the Cimmeria RP-PvP server. Even though its a RP server we don't do any RP (community seems ever so slightly more mature than the norm). We're fairly small but it's rare to have a night go by without 3 or 4 of us on. Our guild leader is very active and is pretty much always on.

    We don't have any rules really. Just don't be an idiot.

    We even got our guild city going recently.

    If your interested you can send a /tell to either: Goimhbrog or Morsus (My two toons)

    You can also drop by the webiste: www.tripledeuces.com

    Or just send a PM if you have questions.

    They weren't trying to nerf Necros - the goal of the patch was to rebalance them to rely more on their pets - but I think it ended up that way. As I understand it they added some bad bugs and didn't buff pets enough to compensate for all the nuking nerfs.

    Thats part of it too, the guild just isn't active at all. While I do enjoy soloing to an extent, MMOs for me are social things, I need people to talk to and go out and kill things with, otherwise I'd rather just play a single player game.

    Whether or not I've stayed with an MMO is pretty much purely dependent on if I find a decent social group or not.

    My work schedule prevents me from playing when most people are on. I usually see one or two people except maybe Saturday night. Also, I'm east coast so that plays into things.

    If someone finds a more active guild for us merge/move to, Im all for that. I think people moving to the pvp server hurt us alot in terms of membership.

    So... I still have no idea what the hell was up with that patch yesterday. I mean, the entire gaming community cries about ToS's, so what do they do? Make the damage more steady, lower it a bit, and TAKE AWAY THE COOLDOWN?! Yeah, 3 seconds is an eternity to cast, it's not like every single caster in every single MMORPG ever has a standard 3 second fireball/shadowbolt/whatever nuke. Not to mention they get stealth in AoC.
    Sigh.

    Well I want them to fix the client error bug, and graphic freeze up one (going near some torches or bloom I'll get a weird flashing in the upper left corner, its most notable in villa camillus).

    I love the game but I wish they'd fix issues before introducing some new ones, though at least the client error takes a bit longer now before it occurs.

    Yes. usually after about one sentence. Weird that it changes mid cutscene.

    Just tried the crafting place. holy crap that is boring as hell. Am i missing something? You run aimlessly around a huge landscape just hoping to stumble across the resource nodes for ages?

    No that's pretty much it. Except you mark where the nodes are and then you wont be running aimlessly anymore, since nodes are permanent.

    Also, sometimes NPC's will appear and attack you while you're mining.
