  • LOTRO community was generally good, and the minstrel is kind of a fun twist on healing (it's overall a pretty standard mechanic, more mobile than some other games though, and you get to strum a lute, for extra flair ) Also, if you're not familiar …
  • Originally posted by Rohn Can't say I'm a fan of the graphics or art style yet either, but I imagine the game has a long way to go, so some stuff could change. They've got some familiar sandbox elements planned, though honestly there's not a ton …
  • Originally posted by Ghost12 Originally posted by Robokapp Originally posted by Lidane Originally posted by Robokapp in WoW the body dies, then returns to life upon merging with the spirit. that's temporary death.…
  • Originally posted by Vryheid In your ideal world there may be a game where crafting is an "art", but there is NO example of a full loot PvP MMO currently on the market where crafting fills nearly that kind of potential. If there really were any mo…
  • If I recall correctly, Dark & Light was an amazing saga of horror on these boards.. promised the moon in terms of sandbox gameplay, but ended up being next-to-vaporware with a very empty world, and buggy incomplete content (moreso than most MMOs the…
  • Originally posted by rygard49 Speaking as an OG Ultima Online PKer, full loot is all about griefing. It's feeling good that not only did you take something away from someone else, but you took everything, and all of their hard work to get items ju…
  • Originally posted by parrotpholk Full loot adds a new dynamic and also creates  a sense of danger and excitement.  Ptoblem is not pvp with looting, problem is the community has devolved into something that no one wants to be a part of.  I would…
  • Originally posted by Vryheid And finally there is the inevitable tendency of the players in these types of games to gather into huge alliances that form an uneasy peace with each other, all due to a paranoia over losing gear and the realization…
  • Also just to throw in a comment about it being "gamblers" who like full-loot PVP - maybe? But I actually strongly dislike casino-gambling because it's pretty clearly statistically weighted against the end player. In gaming, the 'odds' are to some …
  • Just to throw in my two cents - I do enjoy full-loot PVP, and I am not a PVPer. I actively go out of my way to avoid PVP and am generally a crafter / hunter / gatherer type. Somehow I "doubt" this qualifies me as a sociopath. What I like, is in …
  • Just adding "A Tale In The Desert" to this list. There is no combat, it's 100% crafting, house and monument building, and social - but it's very intricate and complex in those areas. Xsyon someone else already mentioned - is pretty new, very ope…
  • I'm downloading the trial to check out FE - haven't played before, but would like to group up with other new/low-level players. My primary interest right now is checking out the crafting which I heard is pretty deep not unlike old SWG. I'll send…
  • 2A95751BC9FA4D8D90D2   Sent one to tank, whoever gets this one please either PM them to people on the forum or post them.   I recommend trying all the keys - I got mine on the first try back in the 60's and that was after reactivating my Ne…
  • Looks interesting - as a veteran EQ player and short-time player of EQ2, I may look you up (will send a PM when I get the game downloaded). Sounds like a good group of people, and MMOs are always more fun with a group.
  • Everquest 1? I havent played in years, but back then it fit this pretty well. Only problem is as you say it's old and there may not be a ton of low level players to group with.   I am seeking a MMO where people group up to grind mobs. * No que…
  • I've beta-tested MMOs and some of them have had truly horrible first days... WoW among them (well, actually WoW beta was quite nice, but launch day was a nightmare). In recent history though, they've been getting smarter/better about open beta and…
  • According to this thread on the official forums, the new Fileplanet download only requires a 50MB patch. However you still have to do the file-moving fix to get it to work - it's just the files are different sizes because some of the patches are alr…
  • I don't think that's due to the new client - I've been getting that msg too, it seems like the patcher just slowed down even more. I would give it a few min and try again. I'm betting it requires the 900MB patch too because they're the same size, bu…
  • And its back...
  • I made a backup of the files but it worked like a charm - even though I'd already downloaded 300MB. If it breaks after the patch is done I'll post again, but so far so good. Thanks OP.
