Post anyone still play wow?
im looking for someone who has a recruit a friend key...im having issues bringing back my copy i got to walmart, someone opened it and used the key and they wont take it back and its going to take a few days to get my new key from bilzzard, and if i have to play a trial i figured that would be better cause we would both get all kinds of bonuses:) thanks

I have an active account, but I haven't been playing because we've been so busy preparing for the move. Once we're moved and settled (the end of this month) I'll be playing again- I think the only few of us who play are horde over on Thunderlord.

I couldn't agree more. I tried to play for awhile again as well. But I just couldn't get back into it.

Would love to find a game for all of us to play again though; I really hoped Aion would do it--but I understand why it didn't.

Well there are 2 games on the horizon that may fit that bill. I can only speak for one of them as this time but so far the PvE in Rift is well done.

I wish I could turn back the clock to when we all were playing DAoC together.. Those were some fun times.

Someday the fun will return

Maybe one day Mythic/EA will decide to make a DAoC 2. Just take all the good from DAoC and revise it some. Put in new graphics, skills, spells, & zones. Could be another great game if they manage it correctly.

One thing Mythic has to learn is that the only path to class balance is to make classes identical. Until then, I don't know if I want to play another of their games.

And "Identical" in this case can mean:

Different races
Different classes
Different ability NAMES.
Different ability effects.

The abilities themselves are all identical; but the names and effects are different.

Post Re: anyone still play wow?
AYE but the spell list or skill set needs to be the same across realms as well.
you can't change them up between classes from one realm to another.

These would be bad examples:
A mentalist with stun if no other realm's utility caster had stun.
A Hero with climb wall if no other realm's tank could also do it.

Basically, like Nalthy said. All they have to do is make one realm's classes
with skills and spells and then copy them to the other realms and just
change the names of the spells and classes. AND add different spell effects
and animations for skills.

As soon as one realm has a spell or skill that is different from any other realm,
you are going to have an imbalance. And likewise if any realm has a class that
doesn't have a mirror skillset/spell list in all the other realms.


IF they stuck to that one golden rule, then DAoC would have been perfect
as would any subsequent games.

Post Re: anyone still play wow?
I dunno if it'd be perfect; people still bitch about class imbalance in WoW and Aion. Certain classes may still get overpowered from time to time and have to be toned down.

...but at least, in the grand scheme, it'll be the same. To use WAR classes, at least if the Sorc and BW were identical, when one of them got an overpowered ability, the other would as well so it'd still be both sides having to deal with it.

It goes a VERY long way; but there's no real way to get people to stop thinking at least one class is overpowered at any given time.

I was just thinking about all of you guys. Kaba was over at my house last night and we were reminiscing about the good old days.

I'm about to be in a PhD program -- whenever I find out where I'm going. Then all I have to do is read reports and game. I'd love to play with all of you guys again.

Is most everyone at Aion, Wow, or Daoc? Hah and who is everyone as it's been a while.

Cheers,

Narco I know that's free now. How good is it? Is it soloable, only groupable, or combo of both? And of course, how's community?

annathemas and I are playing some Aion at the moment; we switched to that after WAR fucked up the free trial by making T1 1-15.

The game is pretty solid overall but it's not overly compelling.. I was never
a huge fan of Lord Of the Rings so the whole storyline means nothing to me.
Overall it's a fun game though and the classes are fun to play but might be
a little slow in their development.

It's definitely soloable and in fact alot of the quests I get are solo quests.

The gameplay is like a mix between DDO and DAoC and works well but is
not groundbreaking by any means. The game is faily old I guess anyway
so it's not surprising that graphically it's not jaw dropping or wow-ing at
all. But it serves the purpose. Its'a a fun game with a decent community
that you don't have to invest hours in at a time if you don't wish. I'm
still pretty low level so I can't comment on end game or PvP if there is
any.

One thing I did notice however that I really like is that some quests will throw
you into an instance and that instance is usually a place that you've already
scoped out so it doesn't feel like a dungeon crawl or odd in any way, it just
feels like your going back to a spot you've scoped out prior, at nightime to try
to get something done under cover of night (for example).

All in all, it's worth playing especially since it's free.. However I think the highest
levels are locked for subscribers only.. Which is fine as it gives you a chance
to figure out if you think the game is worth paying for, and in any case you
have many levels to play through (45ish?) before you'd have to actually pay.

I've been playing a little over a week now and I'm level 17. That's about 18 or
so game hours.
