Looks like fun to me, I'm DLing now. If you pre-order you also get to keep your beta character. Then next week Saturday, April 28 at 12:00 PM Pacific is early access followed by official launch May 1st.

Was watching this one for a long time. Looking forward to some new shiny action MMO goodness.

These graphics may actually make my computer explode--should be fun to test out. Smiley: laugh

Yeah it may be one of those weekends when I impulse buy a new graphics card. Although I think my aging PNY gtx460 OC can still hang for now we will have to see.

Game has some serious shiny to it if you go out and watch some of the beta videos.

It should be noted that even with relatively weak graphic cards the game is still playable. Sure you won't be able to see everything in high def glory but the way they handled loading people and npc's allows for a smoother game play than one would expect.

At least that how it was a month ago. Will find out if it is still like that once it finishes patching itself.

Huh, might check this out. I am still not fully sold on what MMO I am going to be playing over the next year or two - this one seemed neat, but I've heard mixed reviews

It is a fun game, no doubt about it. Very action-y. If you are really good you can do things that are really impressive, if you lack said skill you will struggle. Smiley: tongue That said different classes feel different and actually play differently. People in plate move slower than leather and cloth. If you use a big weapon you attack slower. All the good stuff.

I sort of suck at everything but I might try it nonetheless.

So far I've tried out Slayer and Mystic.

Slayer was a lot of fun, but I think the attack speed is just a tad too slow for my tastes. Dunno if that's standard or not, so I might just need to get used to it in general.

I want to try Warrior, Ranger, Sorcerer and Berserker later.

I just started. Did not get time to play last night. Ima female Castanic warrior. Smiley: drool glomp.

Game looks amazing so far. I started off trying to use my xbox joystick but went back to KB for now. The fact that I have a built in option makes me really happy.

And Sand I dunno why yours is so slow. Maybe you just waited to long. When I DLed it Wednesday night it was screaming in at over 3MB/S.

yea im going slow.. 360 kB/s -.-
I even turned off wireless and went wired. Still at like 11 hours XD (jumps up when I basically do anything else). Maybe it is time to see how much more the next 'net speed package...

And thats a nice whale tale you got there.

Check your options--do you have Peer to Peer enabled? Might help.

And yeah, the game is gorgeous. It really is.

So far I've tried Warrior, Archer, Berserker, Slayer, Mystic, and Sorcerer.

Archer is ridiculously easy to play. I didn't like Sorcerer or Mystic. Slayer was fun, but a little too slow for me (not necessarily speed of swings, but the ability to keep hitting a mob for staggers). Warrior was a nice speed, but I was much less interested in the skills than with Slayer. Berseker I accidentally skipped the Prologue, so I just tested combat speed and glanced at tooltips. Don't think it's for me.

Still need to try Lancer and Priest. But, as of right now, if I buy the game I'd probably go Slayer.

I took my warrior to level 12 and got off noob island. I like the class I find it quite fun. I'm working on an archer on another server now just to try it out. So far I think you may be right it is strong early on and I am speeding through mobs like crazy.

But I don't mind that.

Yeah--it's mostly because nothing really has the ability to catch up to you. Auto-fire them as they run towards you, backstep if they get to close, pepper in power shots for slightly better dps (though that barely even matters). Enough of your shots will make them flinch that you're pretty much never in danger.

I've tried Lancer, Archer and Sorcerer(?).
I do not like the prologue...you don't really do anything but fight that one semi-large group with the NPC and then the boss (because if you climb up the ladders, engage a zombie, and then jump off back into the water...by the time you climb back up they will be dead. Attacking seems to trigger the NPC soldiers to attack XD) and then you lose all your abilities. You just get a glimps at what you can be o.O

I found I like controller play more than keyboard, but that is due to using a game-pad rather than my keyboard (I don't have the F keys on it, so I was basically not using half my skills >.>). I never did find out how to change the option between the 2 once you had started and made the pick.

The servers were full to try other classes so that is all I got to try out. Will keep an eye on it and it may be something I pick up and play in a few months.

Yeah, the Prologue is meh. Part of me is wondering why it's there, since you just randomly forget how to fight...

It's just a preview to see some of your higher level skills for the beta. My archer is off noob island now in about half the time it took my warrior. Things like Kugai and Karacha were gravy on the archer.

Between piercing shot and Volley archer is beast. Enjoying the game so far.

The prologue was thrown in right before open beta to allow people to see some of what classes could do at higher levels.

Also, comparing the archer or sorcerer to the warrior is about as apples to oranges as you can get. Each class has a difficulty rating and the archer and sorcerer are both two stars, the easiest classes in the game, and the warrior is the only 5 star, the hardest class in the game.

As far as going from a keyboard/mouse to a controller, use whichever one you want. They both have their own set of hotkeys, so you can go from one to the other on the fly. Just hit select on the controller to get into the controller manager. For those who are using a controller, make sure you adjust how you attack. It's best to have melee attack which way they face, and have ranged attack which way the camera faces. It's selectable in the controller manager window.

I can see mystic being some pretty good soloing potential as well. Not as much output as an archer but decent at least at low level and nice heals and mana regen.

Funniest thing I saw yesterday was a mystic named Balls.everwhere. I got off the pegasus after leaving the island and the entire courtyard and stairway into the city was filled with mystic balls. Some other mystics even decided to help his art project. It ended up looking great and at the end he decried:

"Are you not entertained by my balls!?!"

I wasn't really enjoying Mystic, but it was also the first thing I tried. I think it probably uses more of the complex mechanics than other classes.

It's apparently, according to other players, the lowest dps class. As in it will do half of what a Priest (next lowest) can, despite both of them being the healers. But that will probably be balanced out, unless there's some really specific reason for it that I'm missing. It is group-oriented, afterall, so if it buffs other players way more than a Priest can...

But I digress. :P I want to like it, because I generally prefer magic classes but wasn't loving sorcerer. We'll see.

When is the open beta weekend ending--sometime today? It's still available now.
