    I've spent two days on Singing Ilse and I just made level 9 wizard (only to be knocked back to 8.9 by a zombie). I've spent about 10 hours playing time on this girl, what's the deal?

    and my knight wasn't much better. game is slow.playing is slow. walking is slow, i kill like two things and have to go back to town. no one answers you're questions (or they laugh at you). I target something and then they beat the crap out of me because i can't fight back (and these are green monsters for me, not blue or yellow).
    I know I'm a complete newbie to this game, but at least in Diablo I'd see some progress after playing for hours and hours. I feel like I'm getting nowhere faster than going anywhere.
    what's the deal?

    Maybe i'll play a knight for awhile, get a feel for the game. My wizard Jedzia is just pissing me off :)
    my knight is Jedsia, or will be, I think I deleted my first one in a fit of frustration.
    If I don't get anywhere by this weekend I'm pretty sure Lineage is going in the trash bin.

    Yea, you level slow and walk slow, but to me thats fine. I got the patience. BTW, I think that Baldurs Gate 2 is also a very slow game, slower than Lineage. The thing that I like about it is the CHALLENGE. Im playing hardcore, that is, if any of my chars die, I delete them (and I died a whole lot at the beginning). So the fun for me is in the challenge of being able to play and not die. 80% of the parties I have been in had someone die. Course, playing with a dead char to me is just gross :sick:.

    The main thing I dont like about D2 LOD is the fact that it becomes pointless when everybody is using uber gear thus being so darn easy. When all the chars have such uber gear and rape over everything, whats the point???

    No challenge, no point, no fun. Anyway, thats what I see in Lineage. However, when the free trial is over, Im out of there. I dont pay subscription fees.

    If I got better FPS I'd like it a lot more. I quit because I couldn't stand the slide show.

    If you're a wizard you need to get 100 adena and then buy energy bolt from the lady in the middle of town. Learn the spell and now you can kick ass.

    dOOd, like, there is no fps in lineage. it's just slow and choppy... regardless of your system.

    I've had energy bolt, course can only use it like 6 or 7 times before i'm out of mana and just standing around waiting for it to refill.
    got my 8th level spells too.
    tho it does seem faster to whack monsters on the head with my +0 scimitar. :D
    I've got 18 int, 17 wis and 15 cons. maybe i should have put that last point into wis instead on con, but i figured i'd stay alive longer with an extra point (go figure)

    I put 18=Int, 18=Wis, 16=Const. I wish I put 16=Int, 18=Wis, 18=Const. If/when my char dies, Im going to put it that way.

    I just zap or bonk them once, and let the dog finish em off while I run away. I have not been having to wait for mana to recharge much. If I didnt have the dog, I can see that I would have that problem.

    i had a dog, sniff sniif and a boar killed him. I"ve been trying to tame a new one, but either i kil em (cause they wont take the meat, finiky bastards) or they kill me.
    i've been trying to give em at least 10 meat, course its hard to heal yourself and try to bribe the attacking dog with meat at the same time.
    there has got to be an easier way to tame a dog, talk about cruelty to animals.
    here, beat him up till he's almost dead, then give him some food and he'll love you forever. what a concept :D

    aw, i give up. this game going to the trash. what a waste of two days.
    think i'm gonna play some HC diablo for a change in pace, give D2 some new challenge, or level up my softie martial assassin. i've had it with this game, especially since I can see paying a monthly fee for it.

    I am a witness to one. I confirm Jake has had at least one woman in his lifetime.
