Old trinity based MMO

JaldrenJaldren CorkPosts: 310Member Uncommon

Let me start by saying that I love healing.

 

This need of mine has not been fulfilled nicely since the days of everquest 2 and wow. With hybrid classes in games like FFXIV, Rift, NWN, and others without trinity (GW2), I miss the old days.

 

Call me simple, but I like staring at team member's HP bars going down and reacting to them. Been doing it for 10 years, if not more

 

Is there any highly populated games out there, with a nice LFG system, stat still uses a well defined trinity system? Crafting and customization is a plus

    Trinity or fu :D

     

    I dont care how many players are saying trinity is old and retarded mechanics ... Because for me it is only way RPG and MMORPG can work (for me) to be fun. Mmorpgs where everyone is dps I dont want to play ever again and I wont change my mind on this subject.

    Look, there is nothing to worry about... TESO, Wildstar, etc. upcomming mmorpgs are going with trinity and I know even in 2020+ there are going to be trinity released mmorpgs :)

     

    and yes there are plenty of trinity based mmorpgs :) rift, aoc, swtor, wow, lotro, teso released soon and more ...

    Unfortunately I played all of them, and let me explain:

     

    rift: maybe coming back, but for some reason the F2P made me leave

    AoC: played it the first year, now it says nothing to me

    SWTOR: no end content, repetitive gameplay

    WoW: dead

    LOTRO: they wiped my max level minstrel, without any compensation or explanation. "F" them.

    TESO: it's bad, just bad

    Oh, I love it...especially in low DPS groups that push a boss to the enrage timer...

     

     

    Or, healing VoA...solo...when 5 out of 6 healers died at once...to orbs...

     

     

    ;)

     

    If you're bored of WoW and EQII healing, try RIFT. Something similar, and it's fun healing the dynamic content (and having DPS enough to down something in your lifetime!).

  • JaldrenJaldren CorkPosts: 310Member Uncommon

    Ok, downloading RIFT... let's see how it goes

     

    THanks guys :)

  • JaldrenJaldren CorkPosts: 310Member Uncommon

    A few very bad dungeon runs on Rift really put me away. Too many newbs, even at high level.

     

    So, let me refine what I am looking for:

     

    - Solid trinity (pure healer class/es)

    - Small amount of skills. Don't want 4 hotbars with skills, like EQ2 or WoW

    - LFG system like WoW, FFXIV or Rift

    - High playerbase

    - Best if not fantasy

    In one day of downloading the game you can see this?

     

    o.O

    2 days actually,  roughly 10-15 hours of play time (downloaded in an hour or so). Reloaded my old toons.

     

    Ran  6 dungeons, 4 interrupted in the first 20 mins by someone crying and leaving, 1 had 2 AFk and the 6th got completed with 4 wipes at lvl 50ish.

    Hmm...What your looking for just might not exist...however..

     

    www.daoc-origins.com - Check this out....

     

    I really can't think of anything else currently on the market that you have not already tried.

    Already played DAoC years ago, and it was awesome. Unfortunately both the gameplay and graphics are FAR too old for me. I'm too shallow, I know :(

    Tried going back to eq2 lately ? If you are bored of it then you will have to wait for the next old school batch in a year or 2.

    Unfortunately EQ2 has a big issue (as far as i remember): 4 hotbars full of useless or situational skills. That really puts me down

    I saw that and can no longer take you serious.

    If you don't want to play WoW/Rift/SWTOR and want a trinity game with high pop, I think you are SOL.

     

    Widen your search or don't play.  There are games in your criteria, if you want to exclude them you won't have options left.

     

    You could try Vanguard for a few months.  It does not have a high pop and will be gone soon, but it does have interesting healing and the trinity. 

  • JaldrenJaldren CorkPosts: 310Member Uncommon

    Tried VG for quite a while. Loved to death. Unfortunately, the low pop and absolute lack of CS put me off that as well. And I say WoW is dead as it's been on the market for far too long, and the last xp's are futile attempts to keep veterans interested. Pandas? Really?

     

    If you cannot accept that reason, read it as it's dead for me, and not in general. Personally, I feel it's on life support.

     

    Testing TERA now, and seems up my alley

  • svandysvandy mount holly, NJPosts: 229Member Uncommon
    Try TSW. The only thing it doesnt have that you want is a robust LFG system, but it does have one that works just fine.

    Unfortunately, having played at launch, a year ago, and a few months ago, that game is definately not for me. It has no real trinity system, plus he repetitive gameplay and slow, non-curve levelling is a drag.

    If you find you don't like Tera I suppose I can suggest Aion. (though it is fantasy)

    There's a huge difference between a game being dead and you simply not liking the game. If you say that you dont like WoW, well then that's understandable. However, saying that a game with 7.8 million subscribers is "on life support" is rather ridiculous.

    Not trying to troll, but how does it not have a trinity? Did you run any dungeons, much less nightmares? The trinity felt more integral to that game than it did in WoW, in my opinion.
