Why does WAR start out with a sword to begin with? It just causes confusion in the long run. >_>"
Presumably because they were the original "tank", so in SE's twisted logic that probably meant sword n' board. A lot of the early patch notes mention tweaking quite a number of weapon ranks n' all that too though, so could also be that it was a (relatively) stronger weapon then.
Also I was scanning a thread in the general disscusion that you can pretty much solo from 1-75. Is this true? The thread refers to doing Field of Valor quests and later levels doing Campaigns. I don't mind grouping but I usually have wierd schedule like being on very late night when most people are asleep.
You can, but as mentioned, groups will tend to be faster. I tend to solo things through 37 or so, but around then is where parties start to commonly do substantially better XP/hr than you can solo. One thing with this game is that all regions play on the same servers, so it's less likely that nobody will be on, and more likely that you'll simply have people from another time zone (who may not speak English very well or at all, but still).
At the very least, solo while waiting for an invite or whatever. WAR isn't the greatest for soloing, but with /DNC it's decent enough.
