    My only problem with the game (that I doubt they've fixed, because the game is supported by a single puppy at this point. And the puppy is very tired and sleeps most of the day) is that some of the quests are just poorly designed.
    Having to fight others for 5 slowly respawning, mob-surrounded mushroom nodes (when you need like 15 mushrooms) is annoying enough as is without also having to do it separately for every single party member, because quest goals aren't shared.

    I did forget about the quest goals, not being shared but eh, im more interested in doing dungeons etc, though with the way the population is there isn't an issue with quest areas being over run.

    As a side note we need to line up something for this weekend. Run a dugeon, etc. I got the whole weekend off so lets do something, cause I haven't been lucky enough to log in and find more then 1 perosn on :D

    It isn't a trial, you just need to either a have the game to install so you can log in to your old account or buy a new one for 9 bucks through steam to activate your 45 days free.

    this link may help old players looking to download the game without re-buying it:

    http://launcher.station.sony.com/

    I wish I knew about that before I re-bought =p

    Vanguard has so many things I love that I wish other games stole, such as being able to have an offensive and defensive target at the same time, and being able to move, albeit slowly, while casting...

    they are a pet class, from what i understnad the pet has issues tanking early in the game but gets stronger as you go. I find them to be a fun class, but then again i love all the classes i have played in this game. Though disco zombie has a lvl 49 so he would be more apt to answer that question.

    Ugh, could not keep playing. I'm just spoiled by the smoother animations and consistent graphics styles in WoW and RIFT. I forgot how much I loathe "photorealism" textures.

    yah necro is a master kiter and pretty good dps, great for soloing. The pet can hold aggro reasonably well but not if you really start unloading on a mob. I usually wind up kiting most of the time. If a mob gets to me I literally die in about 3 hits, but I can kill 4 dots with ease via kiting, sometimes 2 at a time. Honestly I wish WoW's warlock was more like Vanguard's necro. I frequently have about 10 debuffs on a mob at the same time, which is awesome. But I do wish I wasn't so squishy. Dying because you make one small wrong move is frustrating.

    I... don't think people play this anymore, to be honest.

    I played it a couple of months back with the free days I got from SOE for putting my details at risk, but unfortunately the game just isn't very entertaining solo and the two people I dragged with me just weren't into it.
    It's still a fun game, but it just feels like it takes forever to get anywhere. There's a lot of forced back-and-forth with quest givers that just send you to the same place over and over to kill the other type of mobs (you know, the ones you killed 50 of when doing the first part of the quest), it's dead easy to get yourself killed solo, yet at the same time the progress goes down to a trickle after 10/15 levels.

    What I'm saying is, I want Vanguard's classes in a better MMO.

  • ArthilArthil Registered User regular
    Decided to give it a whirl, fun enough. Until suddenly the game decides that randomly logging me out again, and again, and again would be more fun than killing hobgoblins.

    So much this. I'd love to see Blood Mages and Acolytes in a stable MMO. Rift has Chloromancer I suppose, but I wish more developers would pick up on combat-oriented healers.

  • FandyienFandyien But Otto, what about us? Registered User regular
    rift has chloromancer and a neat cleric type that does damage to which healing is tied

    but what i really came in here to do was wax nostalgic about how awesome the bard system in this game was. i was playing my low level bard in some other mmo and i thought man, i really wish i could construct my own buffs, how is it nobody else picked up on the awesomeness of that system

    Naw, it's F2P now; they're having a soft-launch.

  • GlalGlal Registered User regular
    Well, the race/class arrangement is better than EQ2's. You can buy either of them right from the start and you don't need to buy racial packs, just the one you want.
    Not convinced about the item unlock at all, though. Looking at it in-store, it's $5 for one item? Really? That's just silly, no one will pay that. SOE still feels a bit stuck in the "F2P exists to encourage subs" mindset, rather than thinking of F2P players as valid customers. Still, might just be a wonky description, someone said it was $5 for 5 items- paying a dollar for a gold item isn't too bad, you're not likely to get 15 of those a month in my experience.

    So, what happens to my existing account and character?

    What is this I don't even.
  • DraevenDraeven Registered User regular
    It should still exist, as long as they weren't below level 10. they had a server merge a couple years ago by the sound of it to the last 2 servers so the purged all the characters below lvl 10. thouh I don't know about the equipment etc.

    They're still there. And past subscribers get all 8 character slots.

    Also, it seems it's $2.50 to get 5 item unlocks. That's pretty reasonable actually, 30 items for a month's worth of sub.

    Oh, I wondered if anyone was going to revive this thread after I saw news of the F2P soft launch. I still remember the repeated GM petitions we had to get trying to run through cragwind ridge for the weapon quest there, so I got a kick over the fact they've completely overhauled it to not suck.

    Nothing says fun like a chaotic dungeon run. This ended up being like 4 adds in a row and we had to run out for our dear lives.

    I tried getting back into this with my 47 disciple, but seeing every single quest reward marked "gold membership only" just left a bad taste in my mouth. I did have a 26 psionicist I might be able to use for partying, assuming I remember how all the skills and combos worked...been too long, and I think all my skillbars got reset since I last played too.

    All your quests have gold item rewards? Man, end game questing in this game sounds sweet (more likely they've not gone through all the quests to adjust the rewards yet). So far the only Gold Only quest rewards I've seen were a class quest weapon, the Hunter's League golden gear and the URT golden gear.
    Honestly, at 50c a pop? Unlocking items ain't no thang. Especially if you only buy SC on double/triple sales.

    Was just reminding myself how my Psionicist worked and died 3 times in a row to bugs. General chat was yakking about how awesome harsh death penalties were, so I made a snippy comment. 5 seconds later a GM teleports in, gives me my EXP back and asks me nicely not to swear in general chat. That's more GM that I'd seen since the game's first year, so kudos for that. <3
