Probably about as biased as I am. For me Vanguard is the best MMO I have played. I don't play any mmo currently as though they might be well made I find them boring.baphamet said:the game in question no longer exists, why is that? you are trying to pretend that vanguard was some great game but there is a reason it got shut down, there is a reason sigil games got sold to soe, there is a reason Microsoft pulled their funding......SavageHorizon said:Lol Dark & Light was a mess you must of had a super computer and you used the word " "arguably" and why I'm arguably saying it wasn't.
Again many played the game without the problems you had but don't get mad it's not going to be the same for everyone.
yet you say dark and light was a mess? LMAO! how much more biased can you be?
I really enjoyed watching that stream, seeing the pace of game play. So many MMO today the dungeon content just seems to be about smashing through it as fast as possible, just so you can do it over again or find another dungeon to break the speed limit in. Because of this, no cc is required really, just a tank, healer and maximum dps.
I hope that the ability to switch off xp is in game. I have seen this in one other game and really appreciated it. It was something that I would have liked in Vanguard. There were so many good dungeons that I could not do them all on one toon( not really an issue, but not into alt itis either ).
I do remember one quest series though in some elven town for around late 30 to early 40 level I think, this was for a set of armour which took me several weeks to obtain, by the time I was done I was over level a bit for the gear. It would have been nice to turn off xp, I was more into the experience of the quest series and the grouping with a good reward at the end than going up in level.
I did both in Vanguard. There were plenty of quests( the armour series in that elf town for lvl 30's plus was a lot of fun ). But you could also just form xp groups, sit and pull at the Ant mound, or go wandering in Trengel keep for e.g.Sovrath said:I rarely did quests in Vanguard.Xthos said:svann said:Wow beat eq for one reason - quests. At the time eq was known as neverquest. There is no way pantheon copies that classic mentality of constant camping no questing.
I am good with some quests, but I REALLY hope they do not make a quest hub mmorpg. I really liked Vanguard, but it was a little too quest hubby, but it did have a lot of good exploration also. We will see, but I hope they find maybe a middle ground or something. EQ did have a lot of quests, it wasn't a quest hub, and you actually had to talk to npcs without symbols to find the quests, but they were a little underwhelming in rewards sometimes.
As long as one can become geared without quests or it's not a requirement to do anything.
I can see class related quests or lore related quests for games that are really trying for that angle.
But, for example, in Black Desert I can't just buy a compass. I have to do a "quest". Ridiculous.
