I've been leveling an Asura Necromancer, and I think I like this class much more than Elementalist. At least for now. I'm much less squishy, and having less abilities to keep track of remember what they all do is nice.

Hmmm, when I joined TinFS/LotRO I thought it was for life, but it seems not. Can someone please throw Mspickles an invite? She's on Crystal Desert.

Thank you, I found it. But when I tried to say "hello" the game told me "you are not in a guild." Yet, I can open the guild screen. And I keep getting knocked offline tonight. Somehow, I angered the mmo gods. I must go now and sacrifice a virgin . . .

Joining a guild is two step:

First, accept the invite (sounds like you did this)
Second, select "Represent Guild" at the bottom of the guild window.

Oh snap. Smiley: lol

I'm really liking Necromancer. Way more than I thought I would. I'm running around with D/D for questing and general single target goodness, and staff for events and AoE. D/D is actually a lot of fun. Only thing I don't like about it is it's melee range only. But being all stabby stabby is actually pretty fun. Running around right now with three pets at a time really helps stuff die fast and stay off me too. Smiley: grin

+1 for necro D/D setup. It's just high and fast damage (plus the lifetap and immobilize is so handy). Though, I also use my 2h staff for the exact same reasons... aoe traps and ranged attacks.

Three pets? Try 6 by the time you get your 30 elite skill (if you pick the flesh golem) Smiley: sly

Yeah, I remember seeing a video by Yogscast where they were questing and the guy playing the necro had 6 pets. It was crazy!

I wish you could make characters on different servers, but apparently the whole account is based on one.

I'm guessing it's cheaper for them, for some reason, and they need to cut costs somehow. It also adds value to the World vs. World system. If you could belong to multiple worlds, you could game the system. Like imagine if Crystal Desert became the unofficial endgame server. Those players could spend time intentionally effing up the games on opposing worlds so that they were sure to get better bonuses.

Well, it makes sense since the bank is shared amongst characters on an account, and for account-bound items. I just thought it'd be cool to make a character for the guild you all seem to be in, without having to move my account over.

You do not have to be on the server to be in the guild, my wife and I play on Dragonbrand but are in TiNFS Smiley: wink and you can be in multiple guilds, so... now whats your excuse!

*edit* I swear someday I will remember our correct server name! (I knew it was Dragonsomethingsomethingdarksidesomething)

You'll be able to "Guest" on other servers eventually. They just have it disabled right now since things are still super overflowed in the starter zones.

I hate the internet. I hate the world wide web. I hate the guy who invented routers. I hate Verizon. I hate FIOS. I'm a sad, sad, hateful man.

I cannot get a working connection for Guild Wars or any other game requiring an internet connection. My connection varies, almost by the second, between "low" and "very good." I spent a while on the phone with Verizon FIOS tech support and he tells me my router is ancient and he's express mailing me a new one.

I hate express mail. I hate tech support guys with bad microphones that hiss and cackle so much I can hardly understand them. Most of all, I hate cucumbers.

When I had FIOS it was amazing, so hopefully your router fixes everything.

Yeah, when FIOS works it is amazing, I agree. It's the only thing up there that I don't actually hate. For years I raided in WoW and LotRO without losing a connection and with 60fps. My connection has slowly degraded over the past few months and it's my own **** fault that it has gotten to this, because rather than spend the time on the phone waiting for tech support I told myself "it's because all the neighbors must have it now" or "my daughter must be downloading something."

I took tomorrow off to get something done early and something else in the late afternoon. In between I've got 5-6 hours and was looking forward to getting some game time in. Now, thanks to DRM, I can't even play a single player game. It seems to be working well enough now to get alla, but it comes and goes.

I'm not on a whole lot other than the weekends, but I'm up for killing stuff. The Thief is probably going to stay my main, but I'll be working on the Mesmer soon.

What's the payoff for crafting? It feels like I'm bustin' my *** getting mats for gear that's about equal to what I have from looting guys or rewards. I suppose it saves on karma costs. I'm not expecting awesome gear while levelling, just not sure where the carrot is.

Also, is there a toggle somewhere for explicit stats? If I take off my 10precision pants my crit drops from 24 to 22%, but if I do my 5precision shoulders instead nothing changes. How much does a piece of gear with 1 more of every stat actually matter? The stats on gear compared to base/traits seem so small.

You get really good exp for your efforts? Honestly, I'm right there with ya. I'm holding off on leveling my crafts on my Elementalist for now, and I haven't bothered starting one on my Necromancer yet. I feel like I need the money I'll get from selling the mats more.

Crafting so far for me is a mixed bag. The amount of mats you need just to get to 75 is substantial. And since my thief is 28 my bank is stuffed now with mats for the +75 stuff that I can't even use. It's ok XP but I don't really need the XP. I like the 8 slot bags I got from leather working but holy **** is it hard to get enough mats to skill it. Huntsman which is my other craft is easier to skill. But after leveling alts all weekend and funneling the mats to my thief I am now in a place where I have tons of wood and bronze but not nearly enough random crap like small blood, small totems etc.

I was going to say F it and just level but fortunately my alts are just as fun to play as my highest level character so I am trying to be patient and stick it out. No idea if it will actually become worth it other than the bigger bags but I am trying to stick with it for just a while longer before I give up.
