and bought the trilogy pack from direct2drive. I had a few questions though.
Firstly, how do I go about downloading the full client all at once? With the setup client that direct2drive linked me, it seems to only download parts of the game as you get to them. It's really annoying since you end up having to wait at the loading screen for around 20-30 minutes while it downloads the new section it needs. I don't understand why they would even use a pointless system like that. Why not just download everything all at once?
Secondly, is it possible to play the First (prophecy) campaign with one of the newer classes like Dervish? I really wanted to go through everything in the game (starting with prophecy) but I wanted to play a Dervish. I guess I'll just need to bite the bullet and play one of the original classes though, huh? The warrior seems interesting so if I have to play one, I can manage, but I'd really rather go through it all with the Dervish if that's possible.
I had one other question for those of you that have made a character and then deleted it later so that you could reuse the name - How long does it take to be able to use the name again? I deleted my trial character so that I could reuse the name with my Dervish, and although the deletion went smoothly, whenever I try to make a character with that name it says, "Name is already in use". Do I need to contact support about it or does it just take a certain amount of time?
Thanks in advance for any info, and I'm looking forward to seeing some of you in-game . I'm still looking for a new-player friendly guild, so if any of you know of one, please let me know.
