Barbarian! It was the only playstyle I could stomach. I’m not really shocked that this was my choice but I am a bit disappointed in the choices themselves. For me the Barbarian was the only one that played the way I remember D2. I’m sure I will change my mind after launch, when there will be set items and uniques (how can you not roll a new guy if you get a blah blah only set/unique?). But for the open beta weekend, Barbarian was it for me. Barbarian will be it for me on 5.15 (unless GW2 comes out or somethin).
Diablo 3 open beta weekend, this weekend!
Pretty good timing imo.
I lost it with Anarchy Online. I wanted to play it and get big and shit and see what the game has at higher levels, but, nope. I just couldn’t make myself do it anymore for some reason. Don’t know why, don’t really care why.
The game I’ve been most active with is Tribes: Ascend, which is pretty fun imo, having never played previous Tribes games. I’m usually a Juggernaught who sits on the flag.
I’ve tried a few other MMOs to bide my time. First it was DAoC which I uninstalled later that day. Then I went to Fallen Earth, which I’ve yet to uninstall since I regretted uninstalling DAoC the next day. After Fallen Earth (via some new thing I’ve never heard of) I downloaded Knight Online which was an old f2p asian as shit MMO I dabbled in a bit. I installed Knight Online and opened it once but when it started patching, I closed it.
Tuesday night I decided I should download LOTRO and gave it a slight whirl on my day off, yesterday. Got a Hobbit Ranger to like level 3 and gtfo of that shit. I wanted to fight people and in a game other than Tribes.
Downloaded DAoC again! Started out making a Lurikeen Nightshade which quickly turned into a character I wasn’t going to play anymore. I switched over to Albion due to Midgard and Hibernia having more relics than Albion and from what I saw in the low level battlegrounds, they had more low level players pvping too. So I rolled Alb for plenty of targets to fight.
To be precise, I rolled a Highlander Minstrel (Thrust). I did this because I know that Minstrel gets DDs via Instruments/Music and that the Thrust line they get has some powerful bleed effects tied into the styles. Spammable bleed effects, mind you, so it is pretty much like having a damage add buff.
I didn’t really run into many people to fight, harumph. However, I did manage a few kills on some Hibs and 2 gray Mids (which I think was played by 1 gray mid). The Hib fight was definitely cool. There was a team of 2 albs and another of one or two (no idea) at the Scrags spot where I was. The Hibs rolled in beatin people up. I fought a small lurikeen for a little bit before kinda kiting him/getting him to leave me alone. When he turned around I just watched for a second before deciding to go back into the fray and stab some bitches.
I was able to take down all but a lurikeen vampiir (op as shit zomg) who was 2 levels above me. I kited him away a bit and he attacked the “afk” minotaur. The minotaur became un-afk and started putting a good dent into the vampiirs health, so I turned around and helped finish him off. There must have been 5 or so Hibs against 5 or so Albs and the last 2 standing were me and a minotaur. Not just any minotaur, but the same minotaur I’d leveled next to the whole morning, from tutorial zone to low level bgs. It was kinda cool.
I’ve been tempted to return to the ol SWGEmu since they’ve begun Alpha testing the OR code. Almost there! I’m just afraid it will be lacking too much for me still, or that it wont be and I’ll love it and then it’ll get wiped for some reason that my little monkey brain wont be able to accept.
Anyways, prepurchased GW2 so I can BWE next weekend wuuuuut. May give the TERA beta a whirl this weekend but, maybe not.
That is it bitches! Bai2u
I decided to make a video and talk over it while it is recording.
I know it sucks at times due to things like coughing into the mic, talking quietly, and not mumbling very clearly (I swear you can hear my mumbles).
I would say this was a successful video. Sure I didn’t cover that much at all, but it was semi informative and hopefully kinda funny.
Especially while presenting in front of a large crowd of your peers whom you are trying to impress.
