  • Even though I've briefly tried other big-name MMOs from time to time, I've always returned these past six years to PWI because I enjoy the graphics, animations, the vibrant environment, the mechanics, and mostly the fact there were things to do, aside from continually fighting, like crafting and herb gathering. In short,…
  • Desdi, as always provides excellent technical data. Here's my anecdotal experience. Harpy is the best utility pet in the game, bar none. I use her for all my level-100+ dailies and never have to use mana to kill mobs - I just let her do the attacking. For Primal quests, l often park her in the air, with her set to Defend…
  • First problem is common words cannot be trademarked, duskblade being a concatenation of two very common words. Contrariwise, were it something like Schloctenheizermistro, which is legally trademarked in the United States, there might be a case for trademark infringement. As it stands, that is not the case. Your concerns…
  • Probably a matter of personal preference, but I'd put reflect on the Walker -- he's your tank, reflect will help him keep aggro more easily. A very long time ago I farmed Temple pet skills and was finally able to collect the three skills that are unique to hercs. Just for fun, I put them on a Glacial Walker. That Walker is…
  • I frequently do TT BH1 and BH2 when there's no barb. When that happens I usually offer to have my evolved herc tank -- he has 4 aggro producing skills equipped, and so long as others in the party use only normal attacks he holds aggro without issue. Most of the time party members heed my caution or are already smart enough…
  • LOL ... your problem is you've never learned to play your class -- it's obvious you know zero about aggro management. I've also got a somewhat OP archer and I wouldnt even think of going in a squad without a lower level bow for boss fights, and where necessary I moderate the speed of my attack. It shouldn't come as any…
  • Skittles, definitely for Skittles b:laugh
  • Not likely, I'm not wired that way. I'll go on being quite content being a bad, but honorable player. I guess it's a matter of priorities. b:victory
  • There really are different mindsets in playing a cleric. There are those who're fully committed to their role as a cleric, are vigilant, and take it as a personal failure whenever someone dies in their squad (no matter how careless that *someone* was behaving). Then, there are those who're roling a cleric as a 2nd, 3rd,…
  • What is *undergeared*? Is it anything less than r9rr +12 and JOSDs? More likely, it simply refers to absolutely anyone with poorer gear than the attacker du jour. As I said, I don't get upset when I'm attacked while in PvP mode; frankly, it's to be expected. I try to mind my own busiiness, mostly die when attacked, but…
  • But that's not the point, is it?
  • Already out there, you need only a bit of Linux knowledge to setup a private server of your own. Try Googling it. Can't say more or this post will probably be deleted. I haven't been sufficiently incentivized yet to create what amounts to my own standalone PW, but it's getting closer each day. As for the player community…
  • I was irritated by all the botters in the daily quest areas at first, mostly because I've got an abhorrence to KS'ing and was terrified I might be taking someone else's kills. Yeah, totally stupid on my part. I got over it -- I'm well geared, have a Harpy, and now I just go in blazing away. In my view, the really negative…
  • I don't mean this in a rude way at all, but wouldn't it save a lot of heartburn to simply let the issue die an inglorious death? I'm quite certain after the next expansion, when NO DQ items have value, there will be such an outcry and possible large-scale defection from the game that some prompt action will be taken. I…
  • That is a wonderful idea -- especially for those of us who play non-pvp servers for a reason.
  • This is a tough question because preference will likely depend on what class you're playing. For instance, on my cleric I like any magic boss, most especially the ones with very high HP. Nightspike Bloodguard and Sea Patrol were fun. Contrariwise, ranged bosses, like Stygian Quartermaster (when my cleric was litttle) was…
  • Thank you for the D/S card, Sparkie. (I happened to stumble across the same code on the PWI-French site, used it; then, not realizing you furnished the same code here, used it again. Didn't realize it was the same code until I shared with my faction. Guess it was a matter of timing.) So, double thank you. b:victory
  • yup ... over and over and over. seems whoever developed this PoS didn't test it very well. Coincidentally, Arc crashed Four times while I was writing this.
  • I've got MS, which I've mostly overcome in-game by creating macros on my mouse and keyboard (mashing icons on the toolbars is definitely not my thing). I also avoid some instances like AEU and FSP altogether because they stress me too much. To play competently I have to really concentrate -- watching squad chat and…
  • Thank you, Surtr, for the update.
  • *Yawns* b:chuckle While waiting, I error checked my HD, defragged my registry, deleted all duplicate files on my PC (they accumulate as I download music from youtube to iTunes), updated my nVidia and Razer drivers, and did a deep HD defrag. Ready to play now. b:laugh
  • Thank you for the new code, Sparkie. It is very much appreciated.
  • World Chat? That must be the chat component I view only when I'm looking for a squad; otherwise, I'm in squad, faction, or whisper mode. There's little else more annoying than witnessing a bunch of immature attention seekers carrying on about hopelessly inconsequential (or improbable) circumstances. Nothing sadder than…
  • 1. How would we access flying mobs? 2. For venos, what would be the point of flying pets? Frankly, one of the primary reasons PWI appealed to me initially was flight. I guess that's still the case -- I'd probably find another game were there no free flight.
  • LOL, not me. I was on a business trip to Las Vegas not long ago, put $20 into the slots, lost it all in about 10 minutes, and felt sick to my stomach. I am no gambler -- for years I purchased a weekly Lotto ticket; one time, I won $10. Pretty convinced my recent luck with packs is because I was NOT expecting anything --…
  • A few posts back I commented that I'd opened 20 Anni packs and received a Scroll of Tome. Incomprehensible as it may seem, this morning I purchased 20 additional packs because I wanted tokens for Crab Meat and pet cookies -- received another Scroll of Tome. That's two SoTs out of a total 40 packs.
  • waa waa waa ... a veno killed me in NW/TW so the class must be OP because I have mad skillz. My r9 weapon is +12, my armor is all +10, my herc and harpy are evolved and have excellent moods/skills. If I'm so blasted OP why is it so difficult to get invited to a BH Metal squad? (an instance I can solo, btw). I don't wish to…
  • Never thought I was particularly lucky, but after beging away recently for 9 months, I purchased 20 anni packs for the tokens and got a Scroll of Tome.
  • Thank you very much, Sparkie; your efforts are much appreciated.
