    I really don't like the imbalance of sneaks. I was in a group at ogres, and a group of rank 4 Irekei snuck in and killed us all. They had been hanging out watching us for an hour or more, waiting for us to have lots of gold, then killed us and said something about us killing their brothers. We had killed some of the warriors and archers etc. around there. If they were really so in character, they wouldn't have waited an hour - it was just an excuse to pk. I'm now thinking of making an Irekei hunter - just to go after these types. Grrr.
    :mad:

    Btw, none of us were over level 23, they were rank 4's. There should be some way of discouraging pk'ing when the level difference is so great.

    Maybe to be completely obvious I should put a j/k in there?:rolleyes:

    btw, there is no Irekei hunter.


    I will never buy this game as it is.

    I'll take it for free. But I wont pay for it.

    I've reverted back to Starcraft, CS, and diablo 2.

    Those games never get old.

    D2 and Starcraft still work though.

    We'll see how the gameplay improves before it's released.

    I've said it before though, the only substance to this game is the politics. It's nice and pretty and all, but that just covers up a relatively empty game. You can build a character and gain experience, and that's it. There's little, if anything at all, beyond the initial species conditions to back up the lore. It really is just a killfest.

    The quests better fit the massive bill though, I don't want a game where the questing loses all meaning (i.e. D2).

    here are a couple of FAQs:

    establishing homes. i think this will be like the guild halls in diablo 2 were supposed to be... a house you can build to store stuff in. woot, big stash to fill with goods.

    and item crafting. i played DAoC for a while. item crafting is way cool and time consuming. you craft items to gain crafting skill. if you stick with it and invest enough money then you can make uber items which you can sell to people and make mucho bucks. if it's anything like DAoC then you will have to specialize in a certain type of item crafting (weapons, armor, etc). cool stuff

    always adding new quests. it sounds like they will keep the game interesting.

    I tried crafting in AC2, but it was crap. The stuff you were able to craft was always way below your level and something that you would never use.

    Wow! I crafted a short sword!

    Oh, but wait, I have a long blade that's five times better.

    you need to craft more to gain more skill to be able to craft better stuff. you can't make uber items right from the start.

    But you couldn't because you used items that you found for the ingredients. Like a crappy sword would have 25 iron. A better sword would have 35 iron, and a really nice sword would have 45 iron. Now you had to successfully craft something ten times in order to be able to craft the next higher level weapon/drum/etc. But the recipe for something crappy like a short sword required a 45 iron component, which you wouldn't be able to get unless you were already high level. If you were that level you wouldn't be crafting useless **** like a short sword, so it's self-defeating.
