Well something positive

Posted in Warhammer- Online with tags on April 29, 2009 by theerivs

That Winds of Change stuff has been blown away..pun intended. Here’s the news… from WA.

Something I do like about Mythic they seem to listen more then any other game design company. Is it enough though to stem the tide of all these people I come to know and like leaving. I don’t know.

Thinking about throwing in the towel

Posted in Warhammer- Online on April 28, 2009 by theerivs

So many blogs are closing their doors, but I am determined to muddle through. Last night though I think the straw landed that might of broke the camels back.

I’ve been trying to get a guild group together for Bile/Blood Run every Monday for the past four Mondays. To no avail, so I try one more time. I got healers, and tanks, but after spamming alliance, then trying to find in general I couldn’t find dps that wanted to go. DPS mind you, in the past I could pick up a rock and hit a dps. Tried for 30 minutes, to no avail.

I logged out in pure disgust last night, first time in a long while.

The State of Chosen

Posted in Warhammer- Online with tags , on April 27, 2009 by theerivs

First of all I want to thank all who answered my little survey, and it seems alot of Chosen seem to be at the same feeling, of course it’s a real small sampling. I’ll give you my thoughts by answering my own questions.

1. Do you play a Chosen? If not go make one, then answer the rest of the questions.

Yes I played a Chosen from day 1, I don’t really have many alts. I have a few but I haven’t even passed level 10 with any of them.

2. What do you like about the Chosen Class?

I like the look, and the feel of one. By far the best tank I played in any MMO. Also the Auras are pretty cool mechanic.

3.  Pick one.

        A. We’re nerfed to hell

        B. Our class might need some tweaking here, and there but overall we’re ok. – I’m going with B, because I feel that as a class were not being nerfed to hell, nor are we ever overpowered.

        C. OMG! We’re so overpowered. I come out of the Warcamp shooting lazerz…pewpew

4. What role do you fullfill with your Chosen? Main Tank, PvP

    I’m a Sword and Board tank whether it’s LV, Bile, Blood, or Running a Ram on a keep door.  

5. What spec are you?

  I am dread to Crippling Strikes, and Discord to Embrace the Winds, the rest in Corrupt.

6. Where do you see this class going heading into the first major expansion.

I think we’ll see more the same. I really wish they would make Corruption more worth to take. Perhaps move Embrace the Winds to that line.

7. How was the leveling experience of your Chosen? Hard? Easy? Meh?

  Easy, I used the Sans method of leveling, just AoE everything.

8  In RvR, What is the hardest class you deal with?

Warrior Priests, just we sit there hit each other all day, but they wear me down eventually.

9. If given a chance to change your class and stay your level, Would you?

HELL NO!

10. In the upcoming few months what do you think Way of Chosen should focus on RvR tips, PvE tips, Tactics, etc?

I’ll try to focus on what some people said they want.

11. Do you have any questions yourself you would like to ask me?

Ok I’ll try to answer the questions.

Chips, Cookies, I told you my spec, my gear is Mixture of Sentinel, Darkpromise, I use the Sword with the crit from the BS PQ, and the Shield from T4 Inf. Jewlery I still try to stack wounds, with some resists. 

My thoughts on this class is I think were in alot better shape then some classes, but I think we need some more work.

Probably the thing that upsets me is the Wounds cap, I feel it’s not good that some squishy classes can have almost the same amount of HP as us.

Chosen: State of the Class.

Tomb of the Vulture Lord.

Posted in Warhammer- Online with tags , on April 22, 2009 by theerivs

Ok I can’t really do any better job explaining the new expansion than Greg Moran over at TOK. Here’s Pt1, and Pt2.  Really fantastic job.

I really don’t get into Live Event’s all that much….well except the beer one. Hey I like to drink, Piss off ya wanker!

I am looking forward to the Tomb of the Vulture Lord.  My only point of reference is Darkness Falls of Dark Ages of Camelot days. It was a fun place, I would be in there for hours just farming, or doing raids. Then all of a sudden we would lose control and battle for our dear lives. Another time I would be log in, and be surrounded by enemies, and just pwned*. 

There was mention of traps, which I find odd I don’t think there is a disarming capability of any class. Will it be puzzle like.

Here are my hopes for this new dungeon:

1. These new traps will be entertaining at first, but I hope it doesn’t bog down the dungeon, or is something you got to do everytime you fricking do the dungeon.

2. Trash- Less trash is always good. I don’t mind a little. But most of it’s just stupid.

3. Better Itemization of Loot.

4. More Loot

5. Token System fully in place.

6. They include the RvR intelligently.

7 . Bring back the Rocots. I loved those guys on my weak Cleric. I use to farm them alot. LOL!

 

 

* Pwned- Funny story, the other day I told a friend of mine who is a little younger then me, but happens to be a mother of some teenagers. That she was Pwned. She goes learn to spell you douchebag. I go it’s kind of a real word, and spelled right,  that it is leetspeak for purely owned, or ownage.  She goes, “No it’s not”  I told her to ask her teenage daughter. She comes back, “I’m the uncool mom, ain’t I”

I go, “No, I’m just really that much more cooler.”

It is my fate.

Mark over at Spearhead blog, put up  an awesome write up about me, and my blog.  He’s a very talented writer. I do check in with his blog from time to time, and I’m simply blown away about how good his posts are, and the videos he got on there.

It’s funny he mentions predestiny, or fate if you will. I’m a big subscriber to such beliefs.  Maybe thats why I enjoy playing a Chosen. That there’s something about the Lore that speaks to me. In real life I do believe in Fate, and that each one of us has one. Whether good or bad, rarely can we escape our fate.

Why did I start this blog? Why am I a Chosen?  Simply put the Changer of Ways has deemed it so.

Thanks Mark.

Tomorrow I’ll be gathering my thoughts on the new Live event, and new expansion, and share them with you.

The Chosen – a WCPI post

Posted in Uncategorized on April 20, 2009 by theerivs

Though I mention these blogs before. Since I walk the Way of the Chosen. I wanted to do a special post for those who follow the same path. I follow these blogs like a religon.

These are my Chosen Brothers in Arms.

Bootae’s Bloody Blog – His insights, and opinions are very good. He PvE’s a bit too, and sometimes his frustrations mirror mine as well.

The Homunculus – What can I say…just go to a Fuck you Friday, and piss yourself laughing. I’m still waiting for my zealot shouldepads.

The Tank Wall – A very nice blog,  recently had an awesome post on how to correct ORvR.

These guys here are bringing honor to the Raven God, and change to the Order scum.

 

Not a Chosen site, nor a WAR site but since I’m plugging sites. I found this one interesting. Like there are some nuns bloggin in Illinois. Here I thought Nuns were like the Amish, and shunned stuff like this.

A couple of my fellow bloggers are on there, should check it out.
