hello vanguard players!

Since I can't seem to post on the official forums on my trial account, my second attempt led me here. hello.


I was wondering where i can find, if one exists, a population tracker for the current vanguard servers? i'm about to resub (i bought vanguard during launch and still have a key) but wanted to join a server with a decent population.


how is the current population? and is there a place for congregation? when I played eq, highborne was a ghost town, but freeport was packed.

    The best server is Xeth.  It is the server that I am currently active on, and its the only server that had enough population for me to resub to Vanguard.  Hope this helps! Look forward to seeing you in game!

    There is not a way to track the population of the servers that I know of. Last time I played there where only 4 servers, and thought there was recent talk of a merger. But I could be wrong.

    cool, thanks for the replies guys.  maybe one of you can answer me another question i have? i noticed this on the vanguard wiki regarding rangers:


    Freeze: Freezes (Stuns) the opponent for 3 seconds. Using Blade of Winter twice in a row does this.


    do all classes get these kind of combos? warrior ability 1 + warrior ability 2 = warrior ability x? or is this specific to rangers? a class defining trait?

    To answer your question yes for the most part. But I wouldn't make a warrior if I were you. They pretty much suck.

    dang, that's where i was actually heading.


    i've played mmo's long enough to know you can't judge a class within a few levels, but i couldn't resist trying out 4 different classes in under an hour last night. i still have no idea what i want to play as.

    i played an enchanter in eq, while playing a shaman and rogue in wow. 

    would any of you players mind providing some insight on the classes of vanguard? i know there are several guides out there (most of which i've read) but they were written nearly 3 years ago.


    edit: i just read weather effects are bugged on windows vista systems, is this true? how can i mend this?

    The warrior class is tough to solo.  No heal, no stealth, no root, no kite.  A lot of buffs but they are short group buffs.   I have a tough time when I get aggro from more than one thing at a time. I really depend on getting a good number of critical hits and  If I dont,  I die. 

    You need good equipment and being a  armorsmith or having an alt weaponsmith helps out a lot.

    Tank classes are in more demand for groups than any type (dps, heal, tank), and with the group buffs that a warrior gets you wont find a problem finding a group.


    There is (still) a bug on Vista and Windows 7 where you can not see the rain.  Apparently the rain is there but its too small to see.  You still see snow, wind,  and weather fronts (dark clouds).
