Ugh, not this again!

Yep, this post’s name is the same as that little tagline doohickey at the top of the page. But, it isn’t because of the tagline, it is because I am not playing Darkfall.

So since I’m not playing Darkfall, I’ve got to be playing something, right? I mean, how the hell am I supposed to pass the time after work without playing some sort of MMO?

Since I need to spend more time off the computer (even though it doesn’t even seem like it’s fucking working) I decided I would play some Diablo 2 in single player mode. I wanted to relive one of my first class builds and rolled a Paladin. I intended on speccing into Concentration and Blessed Hammer, which are received at level 18.

As I said last time I was level 17. Well, I hit 18 recently and got both of the skills needed to live out my Diablo 2 dream. After using it a bit and leveling a couple more times, I began to realize that this build sucks. See, the problem with Blessed Hammer is that if the spiraling hammer hits a wall, it fucking stops existing. Why would this be a problem? Oh I don’t know, Maggot Lair in Act 2, anyone? Every small quarters place in the game, maybe?

Indeed I did not think it through.

Which brings me to the title of this post and tag line of this blog.

I’ve started another DAoC free trial. I decided I would play Albion this time ’round and have chosen a Wind specced Theurgist (oh hells yeah). I’m already level 6 and I just started last night. I’ve pretty much done everything I usually do in the Tutorial Zone (get a full suit of armor) and I believe I will be heading back to the main land today when I play.

What makes me sad is that I will probably end up either farming mobs in BGs, running Task Dungeons, or some other new fangled way to level extremely quickly. My best memories are of farming those fuckin Tomte and the Drakes near Nisse’s. So that is what I would like to try and achieve.

Now I know I can’t go into Midgard and go to Nisse’s but I can find the lowest level Albion dungeon and WTF rape that shit for breakfast. Then again, casters suck in close quarters (dungeon) combat. I guess the worst part is that it is a game where you care about phat lewts but the best phats for low levels isn’t even dropped but bought off an NPC. Sure I’ve got to go into Catacombs and dungeon dive a bit farming aurulite, which could be considered as dropped, but let’s face it, I’m buying it from an NPC.

Now I could go full on rebel and boycot aurulite armor, only wearing phat lewts dropped by mobs in the classic (or even SI, or even Catacombs!) lands, which may be something I try, but if I decide to PvP after that I’ll probably get raped.

Quite the conundrum!

But is it even going to be worth it? I know I can make it to max level before the 2 week trial is up, I’ve done it before, but I won’t be able to do anything Labyrinth of the Minotaur, I won’t be geared at all for any kind of RvR, and I won’t have any Champion Levels/Abilities from Darkness Rising. So am I just making a BG warrior? Am I just trying to relive my past of farming mobs instead of questing to level? Am I even going to enjoy myself?

I don’t know.

But I do know that a few other games are looking like mighty fine choices as well, it’s just too bad I’ve already played them all.

So if I make it beyond Thidranki in DAoC my lineup of games I’d like to play next looks like this: (In no particular order)

SWG
EQ2
WoW
LotRO
AO (That’s Anarchy Online, not Atlantica or whatever)
GW

I could throw WAR on there if I didn’t play it so recently and you may as well consider SWG as the game that I’m going to be playing last (for the same reason).

Anarchy Online almost always gives me a feeling of shitty everytime I start playing it. I like being able to /random me some missions, especially with that program that scans them all for phat lewts you want to acquire, but I could see myself getting burned out quickly. But hey, it is free and I already have a level 30-40 something Martial Artist (I think) so why not just have as much fun with it as I can for a few.

EQ2 gives me similar feelings to AO, mainly because the Commonlands are so hard to get the fuck out of. I’ve got at least 2 toons near the top of that level range and once I get there it just sucks ass. Die to 3 mobs die to 2 mobs die to mobs mobs, soloing isn’t allowed here! I know that isn’t really true, but it is close. Plus the PvP server is ridiculous, I’m not even going into how lame it is to have a twinked out commonlands bitch (especially when you have much higher level toons to play, you fuckhead).

GW would probably suck pretty quickly. I don’t have any of the expansions and I don’t want them either. My PvP toon is an Elementalist (right?) / Scout (Ranger?). I am set up to do uber fire spells with lots of AE, lots of DMG, and lots of knockdown. When I get in trouble, my Ranger skills save my butt. There was a time when I could really kick some ass from a distance and then when they get close to me they’re pretty much asking to die. Ahh, the good times. Probably not going to play.

Of the games I’ve gone more in depth on so far, I plan on playing zero of them long term. Which probably means I won’t even bother.

You can go ahead and include LotRO in the list of games I will not be playing long term/probably at all. I got to 15 on a Minstrel and while the screaming thing was pretty cool, I don’t like being forced to group. (Well, unless it is Darkfall)

WoW I honestly could see myself sticking with for at least a month (a month used to be my limit but with my last SWG stint lasting 2 months, I may have evolved) if not more, and it really hurts me to say that. However, I am only level 56, so it isn’t like I’ve been there done that yet. Shit, I don’t even have TBC yet. What!

I bet some are wondering, what about EVE? Haha, no no no thank you. I did that for a little bit and that’s about all I’m doing with it. I hate being forced into grouping when I feel retarded. I want to feel good about my skills before I am forced to group. With Darkfall, I was pretty sure I was a leet mofugga from the get go, which made it much easier to group. Plus my guild was a bunch of drunks with mandatory chuggings on vent.

I do miss my guild.

Fuck Diablo 2, srsly.
Fuck CoH/CoV, cereally.
Fuck EQ1, UO, AO, EQ2, LotRO, and GW, indeffinitely.

The pool sure is getting smaller. I keep making my rounds in the MMO worlds and keep chucking more to the weeds each time.

I feel like I am forgetting about some game that I have toons in and I enjoy playing, but I’m pretty sure that isn’t true. It sure is depressing though!

DAoC, WoW, WAR, SWG, UGH! Not this again!

COME THE FUCK ON ALREADY DF

All I want to do is give you my money so you can change a 0 on my account to a 1. Seriously, come the fuck on already. I’ve been refreshing your goddamn page for a fucking week you dick heads.

I was thinking “Hey what a great idea by them, they’re totally keeping my mouth frothing, and they’re slowly opening the flood gates so the servers don’t just asplode.” up until today. Now I am just thinking they’re a bunch of dick heads who don’t want stinky americans like me fucking up their game with my huge e-peen.

ARG!

WAR has been alright. Me and my buddy have been playing a bunch of different toons together in the T1/T2 scenarios. I couldn’t play the healer passed T1 because of the damn healing shit. I can’t heal people, my fucking battle rage clouds my vision and before I know it I’m a fucking DPS caster who can uber heal himself.

Knight of the Shitty Fuck is alright. Been leveling him more than anyone recently and am up to 12. Lol.

I played Quake Live the night it went live. I managed to get to Expert and then lost to the bot twice before being summoned back to WAR. I mean from what I’ve seen, sure, it’s cool. But it is still just Q3 in a browser. I tried to play it again twice since and it has been down both times. Apparently DF isn’t the only game having trouble launching.

That’s it for now, and probably another few days.

I really have been considering recording myself being retarded on my mic but I just don’t know yet. I’d feel like a real jackass due to my apartments walls being paper thin, but there will definitely be weed and dumb stoner humor relating to MMOs, so I mean shit who wouldn’t enjoy that.

I Hate Your Blog Post

Hello there!

My name is Bonedead, but you can call me Bonehead, just like all the 12 year olds (and 30 year olds) who like to think that they’re original and clever.

I am a blogger and a very angry one at that. Why? Well I’ll tell you…

See, there are other bloggers in this little blogosphere I like to call home, and usually they make posts which contain a lot of well thought out ideas and arguments. This makes me angry because I do not do that. Sure you can say my anger problems are my own fault, but I beg to differ!

Ya see, I’ve always been the kinda man that relies on his gut, not his brain. I don’t trust the brain, ya see. To me it’s just a series of tubes and most of these tubes keep tellin me to stop doin the things I like, which is why I like my gut. Ya see my gut likes to eat food and push out poop, two things I have grown very fond of. What has a brain ever done for anyone? My point exactly!

Brains only get ya inta trouble, my friend. But nooooo, Mr. Thinky McThinkerson over there spent the last day with a draft on his laptop cautiously editing every god damn word and analyzing every god damn thought over and over until he had a fuckin essay that would no doubt get graded an A in any highschool english class in the country.

Not me though, nope, I’m a blogger’s blogger. I blog because I wanna blog, not because people want me to write somethin thoughtful and stuff. See, when people come here they know they’re not about to stumble upon an MMO epiphany or the ultimate raid design or anything of the sort. They come here to see me attempt to describe what the fuck I’ve been doing in whatever stupid fuckin game I’m wasting my life on, that’s it. No hoobully boobully, just straight up retard diary shit, motherfucker.

But back to the point. I wish I could sit down and take the time to fucking finger my own butthole while tickling my own balls, but I just don’t. I try to at work and get in trouble, I fucking never will at home because I run out of time there sooo fuckin fast that it feels like I don’t even get to play games, so what the fuck does that leave me with? I guess me and my gut are stuck being retarded as shit dickbags with my sweet ass alias I made up in the 7th grade.

/funny

Alright, so I quit SWG cus I just got so fuckin tired of it. I had talked some shit to the 12 year old pvp wow rejects gone SWG fags on the forums who were complaining about how they’re a big fuckin mob of retards, and then put my foot in my mouth by saying I’d level to 90 on a combat toon and kick their asses. Right, like I’m going to PvE to level 90 in that fucking game in this lifetime.

My friend got WAR and I resubbed. We’re on Praag and we’re both playing a Rune Priest. We fucking own that shit so much, it just doesn’t matter what happens, we can win with just a level 1 IB if we have to. I’d like to get some of it frapsed soon, because two days ago in Khaine’s Embrace I was at the Destro flag with like their whole damn team chasing me, healing myself as much as I could, and he was healing me too. It was just so funny because I didn’t die and our team slowly picked off their team. Pretty much PvP gold imo.

I updated my links and about me thinger. Added Ixobelle because he rules and I finally remembered. Changed Plaguelands (comment) to something more appropriate. Removed Jeff Freeman’s link for obvious reasons as well.

That’s it bitches, posted this shit at work like a fucking ninja motherfuckers, woo!

Oh and to all those who think about their posts fuck you, I’m jealous.

Core -> Open RvR / Destruction -> Order

I had to abandon my Destruction characters and my Destruction server because I had already wasted enough time there, knowing the whole time that it would suck at T4. Why would it suck at T4? Well because the majority of players are WoW fags, shit, everyone is a WoW fag nowadays. Well that doesn’t mean anything Bonedead you friggin butthole! Ahh, but it does young padawan, it does indeed mean something. It means that PvE server fags from WoW are going to choose a Core server because Core means PvE (Mythic changed a lot of names of things so they wouldn’t be WoW-like).

The problems come from WoW imo. Destruction = Horde. Horde = more PvPers/wins more in PvP. Order = Alliance. Alliance = more PvEers/lose more in PvE.

I understand that some really good PvP people pick Alliance/Order because of the above fact, but they are easily outnumbered.

So, here I was playing on my Core Server as Destruction. I never have any problems getting to a keep to buy some new phat Renown gear. I do, however, have problems trying to find Order characters in RvR. A look at Tier 4 RvR zones and what do I see? Red red red, everywhere.

I understand that Order would tend to naturally have less players just because it is Order, however, mix that with a WoW PvEers mentality (a.k.a. me want some sort of easyadvancement RIGHT NOW) and voila: you have Order refusing to take keeps for the following reasons:
1)As soon as we log off, Destro will retake them
2)We’ll get zerged if we try
3)Not as rewarding as PvEing

Shit one of the few people I did run into wasn’t in the RvR zone, so I couldn’t even fight him. I had to flag myself for RvR and then hope he would do the same.

Nowadays on my Open RvR server which I play Order on, if I get bored I can just go camp outside a Destro town and just wait for people to kill. Or I can queue for Scenarios and get in within 15 minutes tops.

Shit I even feel more inclined to group. Since I’ve been here on my new server of love I have grouped (outside of scenarios lol) on a few separate occasions. One to PvE a group of quests and another to take the RvR objectives in Tier 1.

What I have played so far as Order:
15 Witch Hunter
13 Bright Wizard
7 Shadow Warrior
5 Warrior Priest
5 Swordmaster

Most recent being Bwndead the Warrior Priest. I think maybe WP will be my class. I love healing (surprising to me), I like hitting, this is a bit of both. I topped Healing meters last night and had more damage than half my team with the most Death Blows as well, at level 5. I felt inclined to give WP a try when I heard that it could solo Champion mobs of equal level well into his 20s. I don’t know if that is true or not but it sounds fucking awesome. There was also this uber WP I saw in Nordenwatch a lot while leveling Momilda my Witch Hunter. He like never died, ever, with 12 dudes beating on him. It was amazing.

The Swordmaster shows some promise as well, I like being able to take damage AND hurt people. If I took SM further I would probably spec into the defensive Mastery tree (the increase parry swing and the self buff).

The BW is pretty sexy. Still very squishy though, I don’t know if I am a fan of that, I am a fan of shooting 5 zillion fireballs at their whole team though. I don’t know if I’m taking this one any further.

The Shadow Warrior is similar to the BW in that it is ranged DPS. They just feel so much alike, it is basically like this: Don’t get hit, stay far away, and do as much damage as possible. Which isn’t that fun for me.

The Witch Hunter is a joke compared to the Witch Elf. The Witch Elf has a 25% chance to proc a very strong DD EVERY SWING (as long as they open with the appropriate kiss) and can easily raise that chance to 50% as I did on mine. The Witch Hunter, however, deals an equal DD except it is every time they use an Execution. Yep, an Execution, you know…the skill that uses up all of your charges. Your finishing move. The one that you only use maybe twice in a fight against one person. The damage output just isn’t comparable at fucking all, I don’t care what you say, the Witch Elf is so much fucking better at being an assassin than the WH.

I’ve been wanting to do some more videos and take some more pictures but I really haven’t felt like anything has really been worthy recently. The Scenario scoreboard screenshots aren’t really that great imo. They don’t show how good I really am.

I love Warhammer

I really do and I’ll tell you why my friend.

It is CS, in RPG land, a perfect match made in my fucking image of heaven. I love every goddamn second of it because I am so goddamn good.

Waaahhh, Bright Wizards are soooo OP omg, I’m gonna cry!!!!

Stupid fucking baby destruction, reroll Order you fag. Bright Wizards are the squishiest motherfuckers in all the land, and I rape them for fun.

Seriously, this is what I do when approaching the mass of Order.

I stealth before I’m in range and since I am usually the first person they see, half of them lose their targets right before the 2 armies collide, so that is plus fucking 1 for me.

Then I pick my first target, a caster in the back or off to the side. I have 2 use from stealth skills, one does damage to the target whenever they use a melee ability, the other does damage to the target whenever they MOVE. Haha, I bet you can guess which one I prefer.

So I pick out usually a squishy ass bish who looks like he would try to run away in fear for his life, because doing damage every time they move really fucking adds up. Shit, pretty much all of the order on my server probably don’t even know I can do that. Sometimes I’ll put it on a guy and then switch targets and after I kill that guy I’ll see the first guy running away taking damage out the ass lol, they have no idea.

Sometimes I will put it on the first tank, because he is bound to do a lot of running around. Pretty much if you’re not an Ironbreaker or a Swordmaster and I jump you from stealth, you’re fucking done, just give up dude, I will die for the 1 kill and 1 deathblow you will give me. I will take scolding from my teammates to stick with the group just to make you lose, and I will never regret it. You should pretty much be shitting yourself right now.

Do not run away from me. I’m just telling you, that is a good way to die. In case you didn’t know, a Witch Elf’s throw slows you if it hits you in the back. Also, a Witch Elf’s throw can proc my bonus damage as well, it also uses less action than a regular melee attack. My proc chance is 50% buddy, my proc damage is around 120-140, after mitigation. You know you don’t have a lot of HP man, why would you run away?

I know I am not untouchable. I know that sometimes when I chase someone into the crowd that is their team that I am probably going to die, which means I also know that I HAVE to kill you or else I have failed. You should be scared. Not to mention the whole morale boost thing.

What is that, you say? Morale boost thing? Yes, this is not a game mechanic I speak off, but rather a human mechanic. Interesting Mr. Bonedead, but how does it work? Well my friend, I will tell you!

When I jump the Runepriest alone, in the middle of your whole team, my team sees this. They are rooting for me to fucking kill your only hope of survival, your healer. If I can do this, by sacrificing myself, my team will want to fucking destroy every one of you order fucks. Not to mention all of you guys switching targets to me, see because now instead of focusing on our healers you are focusing on yours. You’re not taking out my teams squishies, you’re taking out my teams assassin, you’re taking out my teams leader, which is exactly what I want. Infuriate my team, please, I beg of you.

Many people forget about IRL morale, it is a very powerful weapon, and it is easily controlled through psychology/sociology, especially in an US vs. THEM mentality.

Of course it doesn’t always work, especially when I fail. But you know, how big of a problem is that really? I mean we sometimes have scenarios with 1 or 0 healers on our side, that seems like a much bigger problem to me than one Witch Elf suiciding on their healer. At least I’m trying to help, you know.

HERE IS THE PROBLEM WITH DESTRUCTION:
Pussy losers on our team. Yep, all of you motherfuckers who startin whining in /sc within 5 minutes of the start of the scenario. You motherfuckers are the reason we lose. I can explain this as being the opposite of myself. I attempt to inspire my team and raise morale whereas you feel like a failure, like our doom is inevitable, and you spread your fucking pussy breath around all over everyone and it makes them more like you. They stop caring, they just want it to be over so they can have their shit ass xp/renown and queue right back up with the hopes of more players like me being on their team.

The winners are the rushers, who do not show fear, who assert their superiority on their enemies with their “body language”. If me and my 2-3 other rushing teammates wipe the floor with Orders 2-3 rushing characters, the rest of the order team is watching this from a distance, and it fucking scares them. They think, oh fuck we just lost 3 fucking guys, now it is 9 versus 12, we’re fucking screwed OMG RUN AWAY!!!!

Whereas my teammates see it and think, holy shit we’ve already got the advantage on these motherfuckers! Heal those guys in front! We’ve got them on the fucking run, boys! CHAAAAARRRRRRGGGGEEE!!!!!!

That is how you fucking win, my friends. You don’t complain, you don’t cry, you don’t accept defeat. You fight til the last second, you bathe in the blood of your victims, and you push forward to victory.

Pansies can keep their fuckin mouths shut, because I am not here to lose, if you are then I suggest switching to Order.

DESTRUCTION FO LYFE!

Music, the better MMO

I have been busy with real life gheyness etc. Been playing some CS:S because my new computer can finally run it with high fps. Don’t worry, I’ll be returning to Warhammer shortly, though honestly I don’t know for how long.

I always find myself not reaching max level in MMOs and I’m starting to think of that as a not so bad thing, I mean shit if it isn’t fun why fucking torture myself amirite? People usually would lump me in with the “instant gratification” crowd, but it doesn’t feel like I just want everything handed to me. I just don’t want to have to dedicate so much goddamn time something you know?

I’d love to play Warhammer to max level, but other MMOs are calling my name (SWG, DAoC, even UO lol, and Vanguard since I could run it finally).

I just don’t know what I want to do yet. I’ve got a bunch of shit to do today after work, I’m out of weed, I mean shit, how am I supposed to play games?

Anyways, here is music
