    I've played some scenarios and oRvR. Well, the game is fun, that's for sure. Got hang of some things already and I was in the top 6 players in one scenario, so I'm not totally worthless.
    I'm playing KOTBS. Man, they look terrible at early ranks.

    The biggest problem (except travelling speed bullshit) I see now, is a low playerbase. That's definitely visible on tier1, dunno about higher ranks.

    You planning to stay tank? Because if so, I'll roll a (sturdy) melee character. Otherwise I'm gonna be tanking. One should be enough, and I don't know if a DPS-tree "tank" is worth it compared to a melee dps class.

    Yeah, they barely spent any effort on the PVE solo questing, and instead it was (leveling through) the scenarios that really made me like the game.

    The lack of "live" texture quality sucks. Granted, I can't really remember what it was like before. Too bad the game doesn't support SweetFX so I could just add some sharpening.

    Edi: I'm still experimenting around the tanks. Was gonna go IB but now that I read that there is no "aura twysting" for KotBS/Chosen, that makes them a lot more appealing. (2 tank characters wouldn't bother me, because one can go quite nice DPS).

    Vampire Tower is level 20-ish :smug:

    We may as well wait until we have an overlevelled tank + healer combo tho, since it's a pretty tough 9-man designed for that level, so my level 40 dps isn't going to be much use.

    Looks like PQs have been nerfed to 1/3rd of the XP you're supposed to get. But regular enemies can still be farmed as before, so I'm not sure what the point of this was. Anyway PQs can still potentially get you good loot. At leastit's better than the absolute ROFLstomp of scenarios this weekend. I was playing for about 8hrs and didn't see Order win once.

    Level 27 now, but I think I can get to 28 tonight. Warrior Priest feels good. For now, I think I will level up grace (defensive) and wrath (offense). Eventually, I will go back to healslut tree.

    One problem I see with Warrior Priest is that it depends on so many separate stats at once. I feel like I have to pick my poison.

    Also, I tried Discipline of Khaine for a few minutes, and are they just a better version of Warrior Priest?

    I see DoK in ORvR and scenarios a fair bit, so they must be alright, though I noticed people often specify needing Warrior Priests with specific abilities in LFG.

    WP and DoK are good. WP is more likeable because they buff rather than debuff. Both still heal.

    I spent a few hours messing around with UI. Needed a better "bar" to keep track of IB grudges. Ended up leveling like 3-4 levels just from hitting mobs every so often to test the addon lol.

    Goddamn I miss being a ranged (mobile) character. Squig Herder best class. But clearly we need melee guys including one tank so bleh. I might roll a... White Lion alongside my Ironbreaker in case KOTBS guy wants to go full tank spec. Just remember to put Guard on people and don't over-reach.

    Just ignore this, I'm dumping all the interesting/lore-related PQs I can find for order and going through to see which are active/not active. Red PQs are still broken or semi-active. Weirdly, I didn't see any Empire quests that seemed especially interesting from a lore perspective - they might have had cool mechanics but none of those work in RoR anyway. Destro seem to have quite a lot of cool PQs - resurrecting Engra Deathsword, fighting Luthor Huss, Prince Imrik, a Siege Tank, a Dwarf King, Reiksmarshal Kurt Helborg etc.

    Did Murglurk and Foul Ruins, nothing interesting. The Liche in FR is just a reskinned zombie.

    I reached level 30 on my WP. The class feels more complete with Sigmar's Radiance and mastery (granted, that is probably true for any class). For now, I will keep with Grace and Wrath.

    Kaldurenik , does your Archmage use staffs? An epic staff dropped for me (I forget the stats), and I can mail it to you.

    Why do I suddenly have this urge to play a melee Shadow Warrior?

    Go for it, or make a White Lion. May as well have fun. With so many dysfunctional PQs and shit quest rewards (2k xp for a quest turn in? That's two mobs worth of xp, wtf), we will be grinding something and better to do it with something you enjoy.
