Deal, though I think it doesn't sound like a dorf name.

It is, I'm not playing with them and the email I have from them about it is on my home pc. I'm still evacuated for the time being, but going home tomorrow and will post up which server when I get settled back in and clean up the mess.

Game is pretty good for a first impression. I thought DAOC had a pretty good interface and they improved on this one, I don't like some of the little glitches with spells stating the spell isn't ready when it was clearly ready and half way done with casting.

Also bugs with not attackable mobs and bosses, but they are working on it and it's not game breaking. Overall I thought it was a very fun game and has tons of potential, I mainly quested to 6 and then basically battled PvP up to 8 in just about 4-6 hours yesterday between football and other stuff. Also did some apocarthey and cultivating which gets some interesting points for crafting at least making sure I water all my plants lol.

I rolled on the server it requested I take since it was beta wasn't really worried about the server just wanted to play :) The server is called Pits of Zordok. I rolled a dorf runepriest who I've heard is PvP dmg gimped but didn't feel that way at first (I'm sure later game as all support classes his dmg takes a huge backseat to his healing) but I seemed to get more RvR and renown from healing than I did from killing anyway.

I had almost no lag issues PC or otherwise, I did crash twice trying to exit the game of all things ... and it didn't PC crash it was just a game crash so compared to AoC I love this game ;) Definitely a game that could get very interesting and I love the interactivity with some environments and big group bonuses, we zerged Elkrund once fired some cannons and had a good ole lowbie time winning the zone :)

Pretty much sums up my experience so far Mem, I've been in the beta a long time and I can't even begin to describe how far this game has come in the last few months.

mob and pet pathing/AI is terribad, but that will get better. The "spell not ready" crap is odd, but they added a .3 second grace period to help with latency and UI quirkyness(still get the message but the spell/style queues up).

I play order on Ekrund server, but would like to get a hold of Jery/Dunker and see where they're playing, maybe Nad will find that email

Looks like a lot of ex-Guinevere peeps are rolling Phoenix Throne, both sides.

The Oblit/Karma guys are going order( http://obliteration.mmoguildsites.net/ )but there should be plenty of old names on Destruction too.

Sup Shin, Mav and Wid going order on Phoenix also?

I had great fun with beta, crash issues actually got worse but it again was never game breaking and I imagine they will work out the scenario crashes somewhat nothing can be perfect.

I played a runepriest to 12, witch hunter to 14 (probably my 1st main class or rune) and a lion tamer to 10

I thought order would be the zerg realm sort of like WoW it would include all the MMO newbs but the servers I was on were constantly zerged by destruction although order actually seemed more organized, it was a welcome change.

I'll be in on Tuesday when the SE headstart begins, hope to see everyone again!

Yup Phoenix Throne/Order.

I'm gonna be in the guild "No Quarter" with Wid and some other ex-guin peeps. But I'm also trying to convince SOTU to move to Phoenix Throne so might join them.

It's in the alliance made up of ex-guin players.

Here's a link to the alliance forum: http://www.guinwaralliance.org

So slow with the info Mav!! I joined up with the Oblit crew I thought thats where everyone was from Nad & Shin giving the info :)

Still some familiar names and a good crew and at least we're on the same server/side so just look me up online. Created Memon as my main WH and got him to lev 5 before work this morning, I'll be on alot this first week since things at work are slowing down.

Was supposed to be in early start and all with my CE preorder, sadly enough my brand new mobo decided to undertake some problems.
