    looks pretty good... any news on the beta? I pre-ordered TL2 pretty much just to get into NW beta but no word yet...

    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. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    Control Wizard?  Geez get someone with at least a little bit of imagination on your staff.  What a terrible name.  Is this an example of what the entire game is going to be about?  The more I read about this game the less I like.

    What on earth are you going on about? The control wizard is a build option from the D&D 4.0 rulebook. The 'staff' have no control over the names given to classes because it's D&D and Wizards of the Coast that control that.

    I got a key for neverwinter with TL2. You need to contact PW support if you didn't get yours. Lots of people didn't get them by mistake.

    Even after applying the key you still have to wait for an invite.. and when you get invited isn't guaranteed anyway. The key doesn't mean you will get invited at the start of closed beta, just that you will get in the closed beta eventually (could be 2 days before closed ends, who knows?). It was a bit of a ripoff deal really.

    I'm kinda hopin to see a swordmage in there soon, So long as they keep the teleport in for em. Swordmages can be nasty when built correctly.

    Because i can.

    The video itself does not look bad.

    However, I would like to see more videos about some of the game`s features. Something that would make me go "WOW I have never seen this before, it is gonna be awesome".

    From this video you cant really tell if the game has any depth or whether its another arcade instant action, like gw 2.

    Watching this with no context, I would not know whether I am looking at MMORPG or some console single player action RP game.

    Maybe the game is great, but this video did not make me wanna buy it which I believe is its primary purpose.

    So far this is looking a lot less appealling than TES to me... and that isn't actually sweeping me away either right now.

    The more of 'the future' I see the more I need FFXIV to actually work out tbh :/

    Despite the fact that it doesn't look especially novel or smooth yet (though ofc it's not finished) I think the Foundry element could really bump it over the edge. The concept of designing your own missions/dungeons to run your mates through (giddy with anticipation as they bound forth blissfully unaware of the 4 gzillion mindbending puzzles, traps and kobolds around every turn) sounds great and judging from the demo the creator options are a lot larger than the one in STO which is pretty nifty in itself. If they can bring even half of that old time D&D dungeon-crawling feel to the table I will be very happy indeed.  

    I think Cryptic have had some bad starts but I'd like to think they've learned their lessons as evidenced with the kinds of changes they made after f2p STO...within the limits of what they could do with such a horrible engine (the ground bit anyway). Fingers crossed.

    Can't wait for the Beta! It looks incredible.

    My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

    No, the key gets you in, but only once it starts.

    What has happened to the old D&D names? Ok so some fruitcake at Wizards of the Coast came up with it, does not make the name any better.  Until I see how they are going to monitize this game I will relegate to the typical PW game and to avoid at all costs.

    There are some casters in DAoC that have more control in their pinky finger.

    I don't care what rule, it's looking very good indeed.

    Wish I preordered TL2 to get NW, ended up buying it when it came out and even though I havnt played it in 3 weeks its still alot of fun.

     

     

    As for Neverwinter, Not a huge fan of pure action combat but that control wizard looks amazing.  Cant wait to see what other classes are in the game.
