MMO Drama.

Hahaha, this has been a funny week. Just want to apologise for lack of posts, its been a busy week in RL and ingame so haven’t had much chance to do anything on this blog. Anyways, here comes a brilliant story and me letting my steam off. 🙂

Well, a number of guild members I was with in Asgards have decided along with me to split off and form a new guild, we did this on Wednesday night and it was a right pisstake. Firstly, I was bugged in the Asgards so I couldn’t leave and had to notify a CSR and well…you can only imagine to be honest. I didn’t get a reply for days but when I did, I have gotten everything sorted…so at least they did something useful.

So, once we had made a guild with an alt of mine. ‘Imba’ was finally born, I am really excited about this (the guild tag looks awesome under everyones names!) and I can’t wait to finally do something with these guys (I am at my girlfriends from Thursday to Sunday afternoon this week, so I haven’t had much time to do anything regarding the guild!). Either way, I got TS sorted (thanks to KDS for being the only supportive lot through out this!) and the website and forums will be sortet out next week.

Shortly after we had made this, I had a recruitment thread on Warhammer Alliance and this is where the fun really fucking begins.  This was a really simple post and I expected it just to be a few ‘nice guys’ and ‘good lucks’ but of course, we thought we had left the Asgards on a friendly note but we obviously never. We got a mass of abuse from total cockfarts from Asgards (mainly their officers, who I used to plan stuff with and go to meetings with). I don’t see why they thought about sending us a mass of abuse (wasn’t just them, was some prick from Unimpressed too, shut the fuck up arsehole). Either way, Draig, possibly the biggest cunt in The Asgards (who I know a number of people of dislike within the guild and not just my lads who left with me) decided to have one of his full on rants (just like he did about soloing in scenarios ’cause he knew people would get ahead of him, you are just a fucking whiner man) and the big drama exposed. I don’t wanna speak too much on all the crap he said but to be fair, you are easily so far up your into your own bowel that you talk utter shit!

I am sure the ‘Deputy GL of Asgards’ tag in your sig on Warhammer Alliance all high and mighty but frankly, you are just deluded, to much you’re just a prick. Askil is the only one who is genuinely a nice person and I don’t want this to fall back on him.

Anyways, I’m going to stop this uber rant ’cause my girlfriend is lying in bed waiting for me hohoho. So please, when I come back on Sunday…I’ll happily have a word with Draig, Niffe and/or Askil on Teamspeak to finally get this sorted. Either way, I didn’t realise you guys were such a bunch of cunts.

Soloing in Scenarios.

On my server forums on Warhammer Alliance *cough* nazis *cough*. There is a lovely little debate based on Soloing in Scenarios, if you haven’t heard of this before, its pretty much what it says on the tin. A player decides to leave the group and solo in a scenario, now you might be thinking, why the fuck would anyone do that? Well…looking back at my very first post here on my blog…its for RENOWN!

Ah yes, your good old renown rank! By soloing in scenarios, providing you do it correctly, you will gain a hefty bit more renown. This is due to you not having to share your renown gain with the rest of your party and if you do it correctly, you could be possibly racking in 7-10k+ renown and thats at RR60+! So, with every easy way of getting renown come the ‘do gooders’ who complain and think its lame and noobish, just like everyone who moaned about farming BOs and keeps (you all have far too much time on your hands!).

Since this is my blog, I’ll give you my opinion on it. And that is, just let us do it. I know fine well at higher renown ranks, its a pain in the arse to get it anywhere unless you are in a reasonably good scenario premade and even then, thats bringing in 3-4k, nothing compared to the renown gain of a soloer. Soloing in scenario is a dream for Healers, we still do our job (healing your sorry arses) and we can heal ourselves and live a happy life (grats to Benelic by the way, he did 420k solo healing in Scenario yesterday and got 10.5k renown, nice work!). I must admit, as a Rune Priest, I don’t really solo much…I am usually in a lovely little guild group where I have much more fun. However, in PUG, I know I will start to go solo…PUGs are far to incompetent (most of the time!) to really give it a good shot and if your PUG is getting owned (which they usually will be) they are taking alot of a damage. This is big news for a solo healer, it means you heal more, meaning more renown! Hence why its awesome to solo in scenarios.

Damage dealers and tanks have a different issue however, with their lack of healing, their survivability goes down when they aren’t in a party with a healer. My opinion on this is, if a BW or whoever can deal with not having to be healed and can accept that they won’t get many if no heals because they are soloing then let them do it. There isn’t any right or wrong, if it was deemed wrong…surely Mythic would bring some sort of shitty fix to stop the problem? But it isn’t wrong, Mythic have left it in the game for people to exploit.

So yeah, to finish this wall of text off, Soloing in Scenarios is not a bad thing in my eyes. Its necessary, if you think its lame then you’re kidding yourself if you ever think you are going to get R80 by the turn of the century.

My friend’s White Lion video.

Well, within my guild, The Asgards. I have a small group of people who I play with almost daily, we all know how each other play and when we go roaming, its a load of fun! 🙂

Bryan, a white lion who I often group with and who I deem to be possibly the most devastating White Lion on our server made a short video of some footage he got from some Dragonwake roaming about a month ago.  I thought I’d share it with you guys while I think of more content to bore you with.

In the video, our group is:-

Me (Rune Priest), Benelic (Warrior Priest), Bryan (White Lion), Durumir (Swordmaster), Evul (Bright Wizard) and Highelf (Shadow Warrior).

I am currently considering making a Rune Priest video, as there isn’t many videos out there showing R40 Rune Priests in roaming, scenarios and possibly pve(although why I would make anyone endure this ‘SPAM AOE HEAL CONSTANTLY, PUT MASTER RUNE DOWN, SPAM AOE HEAL CONSTANTLY, I do not know!). So, once I decide to get off my fat ass and film some shit, I’ll let you know! Anyways, here it is, enjoy! 🙂

Ps. Watch in HD!

Renown.

Let’s face it, the main catch when you get to Rank 40 is your renown rank. I know thats definitely the catch for me, of course…you get these people who roll numerous alts and while I am sure they enjoy it, I always have this gnawing feeling in the back of my mind that my main character isn’t complete. It’s not like once you’ve reached max level, thats it…you still have that long harsh grind towards RR80.

It was a pretty smart move on Mythic’s behalf  because they obviously knew that the hardcore lot would strive for world first RR80 and that it would keep alot of people occupyed. Writing this, I remember when renown farming was really big. I know KA I used to run numerous renown farming groups, this simply involved taking everything we can in one zone and hopping to the next. It was an easy life and with the banter of my guild mates Ventrilo, it was pretty fun too! But of course, we get the people who think its cheating…(you know who I’m talking about Xanthian and Para, hey, you got a mention, congrats!). Renown rank was only another level to grind, grinding BOs wasn’t any different to grinding mobs to level! :p Face it.

Recently, I’ve kinda lost the will to grind my renown rank…I’m at RR59 at the moment and the second highest Rune Priest on my server (I think, WAR-Eu leaderboards are down again, nice work GOA!). And this is from taking a semi-inactive break from playing my Rune Priest (rl problems ahoy). Either way, smart work by Mythic on introducing the renown rank. While all the problems in the game are still there, you still have us all striving to get to RR80 (go Magdwar, you fucking whore!). Luckily, I’ve become more tolerant to feeling the need to get this level as high as possible. But I know I’m going to feel sore once Smokee and/or Calawyn finally get past me on the leaderboards.

I have a week break from uni coming up soon, maybe I can try for 63? Oh god, I don’t want to start thinking like this again!!
