I'll admit when I first started playing WAR i didn't give it much of a chance.
I played for about three weeks and just gave up since Im more of a sandbox fan And I didnt like the lack of pve stuff to do.
I noticed a trial finally being given by mythic while I was at my brothers house i decided to DL it there since he's never tried it before.
I must say Mythic has done something right. My brother runs a system so old he cant handle WoWs new shadows revamp lol.
Hes using a 2.4 single core, 256mb agp (nvidia 6800gt) and 2 gigs of ram. Believe it or not this little bastard can run WAR on medium/low settings. I have no clue how, maybe the client runs better with XP? but anyway my original bashing of the stability of the game is taken back now the game runs fine.
He rolled a Marauder which I must say is actually well animated compared to my Black ork that I remember playing.
Did Mythic enhance animtations also? the combat seems faster (or it could just be me now that ive been away from wow for a year and change).
using that battlecry mechanic he was in the world pvp area of Tier 1 with a whole mess of people and only stuttered here and there (which is expected with a 6+ year old PC). He loves the PQs in his own words "its like a Raid, newbs could do".
I remember playing WAR a couple months back and people were anti-social like they were in WoW. It seems alot of the old WoW players left. now Regional is very active people are having conversations, inviting for PQs and pvp. its become very group heavy. While leveling his character I saw him in atleast 10 different groups doing PQs or ORVR.
He was running scenarios, ORVRing, questing and PQing. Hell my first play through I didn't even realize the game had crafting. Butchering, scavaging, salvaging, cultivating, apoc, talisman crafting. thats a decent amount of stuff.
I would like to see sometype of armor and weapon crafting in WAR but with all the reward vendors that may take away from the game, Why run scenarios, Rvr or dungeons if you can just get the best stuff crafted? This seems to be the one game that actually wouldnt get better with a heavy focus on crafting.
All in all I think the game is pretty decent and kinda regret giving it a hardtime.
I'm going to DL the trial at home and give that new Slayer a whirl in a couple weeks.
Thanks for reading.
