I left Kingsmouth today.

After one week...

One of the first game that I had to play over any other games I have. While I have liked most game, gaming is fun... So just praise this game once again. :S

No, but really. I have read so many others, like in the other thread, I played 1-3 days done all content in the first and second area.

Take your time and read the story, the reports you send back, read the lore. There is so much and intruiging stuff to read. Do it! I, myself, didn't have time to go past Kingsmouth until today.

I'm so broke. I can't even pay attention.

    You sir have a wealth of more stuff to discover.  Trust me.  And great advice.

    just starting savage coast myself.. I got just over a day /played in kingsmouth alone not including my beta time:) there is plenty to do in that zone

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall.

    Im down to a few quests left in Kingsmouth, but my internet connection is being extremely cranky.  Cant wait to see new places

    Just started Blue Mountain myself.  I have left material behind, figured ill want to come back. Nothing major, a few NPC's in kingsmouth i left behind, and almost nothing in SC.  I seem to be liking the content more as i progress, kingsmouth was good, but SC was way better...and now in BM the military is involed...just keeps getting more interesting.

    Also the combat gets more complicated, and the mobs harder.  I felt kingsmouth the combat was simple and kind of boring, now in BC the mobs are harder, i have more skills i can use, and it seems the spammy skills i used in kingsmouth that led to my initial feeling of combat boredome just dont cut it.  I hear later on ill have to find mobs weaknesses and use those skills as well...

    *posible light spoiler in the next paragraph* (its not a spoiler imo but not sure if others will consider it)

     I guess if you really loved kingsmouth your going to like the later maps even more, especially since the story gets seemingly more epic..and strange, not sure if this is considerd a spoiler but when i log on tomorrow my first order of the day will be discussing the events of BM with a sasquatch...yeah bigfoot...didnt see that comming....even when the sargent told me about talking monkies...just didnt see that comming for the life of me and cant wait to see what its going to be about.

    I'm only a few hours into Blue Mountain. I recently went back to Kingsmouth to tie up some lose ends.

    Finished MIBV, hunted some lore, went around looking for rarespawns, soloed Lutefisk for gits and shiggles (not worth it), then went back to Savage Coast which I had just finished and hunted rarespawns there.

    As soon as I created my character, I went to each major city and found all the faction lore, just for the hell of it. I didn't know where all of it was, not even for any one faction, but it was a fun little hunt. 

    Some achievements give out clothing, by the way. If you haven't realized that. The Kingsmouth City Council achievement (think that's what it calls) gives you a Kingsmouth hat. It's pretty ugly ;) just an example though.

    Just dropped 250,000 PAX on new clothes, against my better judgment. 

    I'm playing this pretty casually and enjoying the hell out of it.

    .. But in a good way.

    Nice OP. In CB I spent for days in kingsmouth. 

     

    Right now I have my main toon where I'm only doing action quests and pvp and a dungeon here or there, I think I've done 3. I also made a second toon. Yeah I know I'm not supposed too :) He is the one where I've picked up everything on.

     

    When I need a break from pvp, I hop on my second toon and just soak up the story he's ql3 still in kingsmouth :)

    I've done everything in KM but the Orochi group instance, polaris? went to SC, and man, the difficulty got turned up a notch, now im trying to fernagle metal somewhere so I can make myself a nice QL5 weap. I dont want to buy anything from the council. 

    And btw, teh morse code... that took me like an hr to figure out. Damn, meeps, bleeps and creeps.

    I've spent 95% of my time in KM since Early Access started. I've done every single quest, and most of the side quests multiple times. It's a great way to build-up AP and get a solid skill selection built. It also gave me a heap of tokens, so when I moved to Savage Coast, the first thing I did was run straight to the Council of Venice vendor to buy some blue QL5 weapons.

    Took me like 3 days to finish all the quests there and I knew hald of them from the open beta weakends. As I said before, one of the greatest strengths of this game is, that I never feel the urge to rush anything, no preasure to get to the next zone or lose connection to the player field. I am now wrapping up Savage Coast after teasing around a little in Blue Mountain to get a sense of how much harder it will get (quite a lot). So I think I will hang out in Savage Coast a little while longer, helping out others and tanking Hell Fallen, Polaris when needed...

    I think you hit the nail on the head regarding tactics.

    I too did virtually every quest in KM once but then moved onto Savage Coast. However, I was finding it hard going and having died literally about a dozen times trying unsuccessfully to kill a boss in the fairground, I realised I should have stayed in KM a bit longer before moving on. It was a bit late to go back to KM by then but I did the next best thing yesterday and revisited all the repeatable earlier quests in SC. They were much easier the second time around but I still managed to raise my SP and AP's quite a bit.. I'm going to do them a third time today and then try the fairground quests again and see how I get on.

    I've heard people complain that Blue Mountain is even harder but in truth, I think the problem is that Funcom didn't design quite enough quests for each area to take you in an even progression to the next. They did make lots of quests repeatable though, so the problem isn't insurmountable, I'll certainly make sure of my capabilities this time before moving on to the next area.

    Well, actually yesterday evening i went back to kingsmouth (right now im at the start of blue mountain), because i started a heal deck and did some quests for ap and started some polaris runs afterwards.  Time to build a whole new group for it was differing between, 5seconds and 2 minutes. Was quite a fun and i really love the feature to repeat content if you want to.

    Also Kingsmouth was still very crowded and there were many people running around.

    Hodor!

    To comment on the difficulty of TSW: it's kind of skill based and how you have built your character. I was in the closed beta and you had people complaining the game was too easy and too hard at the same time. They went the middle road meaning some will find the game hard.

    My advice would be to team up with somebody - it's an MMO and plenty of people around you. I did it a lot in AoC when I was learning the ropes and it really made me enjoy the game more.

    It took me 19 hours /played to play through Kingsmouth and move on to the savage coast now, so far the pacing seems perfect if you are not playing 24 hours a day this game will have plenty of content for the coming weeks/months.
