3 sets of skills for each school.  You can only learn one though at start? Got to play about 2 or 3 days before it was shutdown.  Read various post on forums, but just about every explaination.  Is too vague for my taste.  Is there an accurate fan-site or wiki that brings it down?

In War - Victory.
In Peace - Vigilance.
In Death - Sacrifice.

    Yes at the very begining you will learn 1 set. After you blow through the first chapter of the story you will learn 2 more. At that point you can begin to learn other schools, by stealing scrolls I think. There is also a 4 tier of skills fpr each school. I have no idea how to get that stuff.

     

    You can mix and match all the skills you learn.

    can you tell me if all skills share the same global cooldown? i remember when i used my 1st skill from my main weapon all skills from that tree got a cooldown 2-3 sec also when i change weapon got a cooldown 7-10 sec in all skills.

    is that how the skill system is working or i do something wrong?

    this makes the compat to feel very slow to me..i mean we hit one or two skills and then what?run arround for 2-10 sec until skills is up..sigh i hope im wrong..

    theres 7sec cool down between styles, if not some clans could stun You forever, while other do other nasty combos

    If reasoned correctly in CB1, it felt like Feints of the same school shared a CD, as did Attacks of the same school. Well that can't be right, but there are different cooldowns. Not sure if it is school or type related. :(

    There are also tons of non-school styles and you can learn them all if you can find the manuals for those. I've read on some website that they are planning to make school-less play more viable.

    Thought about joining the CB2 , but with one hour game restrictions per day. I'll just wait for OB. They should at least give 3-4 hours per day.

    The thing is..In a mmorpg 1hr is like 5mins. Its not like mmofps where 1hr is plenty.  10hrs of gameplay will get you through ..what ? Maybe 5% of the content available 10% if your real good. 

    At the same time I know Its only like $10 or something , but at the same time I dont even know if its worth my time and bandwidth to download it. So I'll just wait for OB then try it. I maybe missing out idk , but I got plenty to keep me occupied till then.

    I can't even find the schools to start things.  I'm assuming that is the first thing you're supposed to do in the game?  I tried to fight something but that didn't work.  Even the old school MMO's are easier to understand initially than this...lol.

    All you have to do is follow the quest line and it will lead you to the school. Also you can just click on the quest npc names in the quest log on the right side of screen and it will auto path you to the npcs.

    They are just giving you a taste so you can see if you like it... They need to make money after all, I think the 10 hours +1 hour a day is more than enough time for you to decide if it is a game you think is worth buying.

    The game is huge....I mean HUGE!. I am impressed and although it is a bit of an odd game teh scope of it and some of the design idea's are just....amazing. I am studying game design atm and it really gives me hope that games I dream of making can be done.

    Are you serious? You've got visual hints telling which mousebutton to click, jumping icons, and a freaking auto-pathing feature that makes your character run to the next NPC in the questline. How is that hard? Just follow the quests and you will end up choosing a school eventually.

    Game looks fucking awesome btw. Not only do I like the innovative features and the whole open-ended layout, but it also runs surprisingly well on my dated system. Great optimization and overall high level of polish.

    I've just scratched the surface so far though, can't wait to dig deeper and try more stuff.

    It's shocking how well this game plays compared to the recent western releases.

    Cry? I love challenging games. Looking forward to the less streamlined stuff.

    Above I was refering to the starter experience, which is very easy to follow.

    for most should be easy, yet in Cb1 there were ppl who were running around for 3h and didnt even start tutorial.. like wtf
  • BiskopBiskop AvalonPosts: 709Member
    I'm not surprised tbh, some of today's "gamers" practically need the game to play itself, or they'll complain about lack of directon and too high difficulty..

    I can see how AoW might become a bit confusing later on since it has some novel concepts, but how anyone can fail to complete the tutorial is pretty bizarre. It's just as linear and hand holding as any recent game's tutorials.

    Lol.  I've never played a game with auto track/run.  And if you don't know to click on the names in the quest tracker you will be lost.  Maybe you have played a lot of games with auto track, I haven't.  

     

    Now understanding the systems in this game is entirely different issue.  Luckily there are some pretty good guides out there as most of this stuff is quite different from the typical MMO (at least in name).  Looking forward to completely understanding the systems in this game as I think it has some very nice potential.
