    How about they just stop patching until their patches stop breaking the damn game?

    Thats actually the reason the US servers downtime was delayed and then extended, they were figuring out what was wrong with the patch and then implementing and testing it.

    I assume they'll fix the EU servers after they finish the US servers.

    5 hours predicted downtime? Fuck.

    I was just starting to enjoy my ToS. Just dinged level 10 on fury. The fact that her lightning spell does so much damage, and yet she can also wear polearms, or awesome looking one handers with a SHIELD is awesome after playing a bear shaman. 2 handed blunts all look the fucking same.

    The casters I have tried in this game have all been quite dull. (admittedly I've only played the ToS and Demo to 20ish) I don't think there's any oomph in any of the spells. Yes, that's right, oomph.

    I much prefer to dismember people with a sword or axe, with the occasional incineration for some extra flavour. This is why the HoX fits me so well.

    Re the Necro hide nerf: I used it a few times, but I never relied on it. Over all I'm happy with my Necro (I'm going mostly reanimation with 15 points in General for extra mana regain, dual element specialization and extra damage. I have no problem with my pets doing most of the work, that's why I summoned them in the first place.

    I'm late with the storm field nerf qq but that's because I'm away from home. D:
    But really, the nerfs didn't affect me that much. I already had points dumped into that talent. Also, do we have a list of people who can invite other people into the guild?

    yeah. I get several types of crashes:

    1) map disappears, crash on next zone
    2) start clipping through objects like rocks, stairs, bridges, buildings, crash on next zone
    3) random memory leak
    4) loading screen endlessly alternates between "updating/reading content"
    5) textures stop loading, ground becomes black, crash on next zone

    i had none of this a few weeks ago. they're making the game worse with these short-sighted nerfs and unstable client updates. the only good thing they've managed to do is fix the status bar that they broke after a patch.

    I get 1 and 3 a LOT and a variation on 4 where it goes through the yellow bar and then never actually starts loading anything with the red progress bar. I can't ALT-TAB or CTRL-ALT-DEL my way out of that one either. Fucking loading screen just sits there until I do a hard reboot.

    I guess on a PvP server, but I just used it to reduce the numbers of a large group or soften up an elite.

    I'm not really playing this anymore, maybe in a few months, so someone else should remake the thread and maintain the OP. I just ask that you save the BBcode I labored over for hours and hours. Well, not hours but...do you really want to do it all over again? DO YOU?

    Sometimes my ToS (level 10) turns people blue when they die from the lightning spell. Is that a fatality? And if so what benefit does it give? I had assumed that blue ice demon thing would appear but it hasn't so far. Maybe i haven't done a fatality since level 10 though ...

    and you get a damage buff for a few seconds after you get a fatality

    yup. it's fundamentally good (the combat system is solid, guild cities and sieges and all are cool, quest system is great) but it has some problems they can easily fix with some time.

    i'm having fun but i think you'd get the most out of the game by waiting a few.

    I like this game, but it just doesn't feel like an MMORPG to me. I don't feel the need ot ever ask for help. Nothing has been challenging yet. It feels like a Single player RPG with a chat window on the bottom. And when in Tortage that was fine, but once I left, it is starting to feel stagnant. :(

    Yeah I like that you aren't forced eq style to be in groups or die repeatedly, yet they do have some nice group quests usually towards the end of a zone (when you are just about finished with it I mean) that give you good equipment for grouping with others.

    So did anyone else feel they increased regular mob health yesterday? All I know is I went from being able to one shot bang an npc even level caster with swift strikes and now they still have life left over. If they did reduce meele damage I'll be pissed.

    Let me explain, I don't want a game where priests are forced to group up with a DPS class cause htey can't do shit.

    Give you a WoW Example cause everyone and their mother played that.

    West Fall, every class could do every quest in that zone by themself, EXCEPT Deadmines. Pretty much the whole story in that zone revolved around that, you learned the story behind Deadmines, you knew who the last guy was going to be, why he was so angry, and what he would eventually do to StormWind.

    Then you get some DeadMines quests that say group. So everyone once they hit 16 or 17 starts looking for groups to goto deadmines and that continues till after 20, when u go beyond. It got communication going, it showed how your class worked in a group dynamic, it's where u learned about Tanking, Aggro, over healing and what not.

    So far there hasn't been any oppurtunity for that in AoC. I don't even know the name of a group instance. I love my ToS, but I have no idea how she would be at healing other people cause I haven't had the need to do it.

    Sanctum is like that its a level 40 instance off of Wild Lands of Zelata, lot of story and explanation. Also the vanir elite quests are like that level 30 in Connalls valley.
