Bunch of News

Yesterday Mythic released a bunch of news.  First off they said Gromril Plating is getting nerf to be only a self buff to IBs.  Carrie also released her monthly news letter.  Not much going in it just saying that they are changing some tints on the armor and they also announced that Marauders are dueling wielding now.  Then the last piece of news that they announced was the guilds done for testing.  Now for the all the guilds out there that got chosen congrats, but I have some problems with some of them and how they choose them.

I know some of the destro guilds they pick for this and they are good players and some of the elite guilds on there servers just like Arsenal and the other ones they pick from our server.  Now the order guilds they pick I have a problem with.  They are not the top guilds or even close to the top guilds on our server.  Now I would have loved to been picked, but I wasn't expecting it because our guild leader has had a few choice words with Andy and the other Devs. so I wasn't expecting to to participate in it but some of the other top guilds like Irony, Blitz, and even Vlos should have def. been picked over the guilds they picked.

Its not that these are bad guilds but they are zerg guilds that have the highest player base or the most people online.  These guys will get demolished by the destro guilds that have been chosen.  I want the better guilds to be chosen because they will put the best competition forth and give the best feedback because the hardcore players know the game better than anyone else.  They don't want easy mode like the zerg guilds do.

Well we will just see what happens with the city.  Only time will tell.

Gromil Plating Nerf

So I know there have been a lot of complaints about Gromil Plating lately but destro should be rejoicing because they are making it self only buff in 1.3.5.  Here is the proof.

Where Is Warhammer Going

So I have been wondering lately where Warhammer is heading.  I am almost full Sovereign and I would be completed if I had gone on every possible king run but due to real life things I haven't done 3 of them.  I have my full glyph set except my back and I don't really care about the rest of the tyrant set because it is basically a tank set and not a pvp set.  The only thing I am really working for is my royal two handed weapon.  That may take awhile, but other people already have there royal weapon and now they have nothing to work for except killing people which is the fun part of the game and what I play for, but there should always be a little incentive to play.

What I think would be kool if they do is that they add an extra dungeon that requires Sovereign gear.  The dungeon won't drop gear or weapons but jewelry pieces.  It would only be accessible right after you kill the king.  Who would we fight and how many bosses I don't know I am sure Mythic and Games Workshop would know.

I also think it would be nice if they added the cap renown to 100.  For those renown ranks you wouldn't get a renown point every level instead you would get something every 5 renown ranks or so.  I am sure Mythic could think of something that would work but I am not sure what.

Where Have I Been

So I have been neglecting all two of my readers again.  Mostly because I haven't really had anything to post about.  Sure I still play some what, but not as much as before.  I am a busy guy right now with all the things going on in my life.  Also I am on the final boss of Final Fantasy 13.  This boss fight could be one of the hardest I have faced in a long while.  I am trying to do it with the party I had setup through out the whole story.  I am using Snow, Lighting, and Vanille as my main party and I want to beat it with those three.  I just have to get lucky I guess.  Well once I do beat it, I should be playing WAR more.  I am out for now, until next time.

Melee Bright Wizard

So I feel like I have been neglecting all my readers lately.  Well I actually have, but that is besides the point.  I have been playing some Warhammer off and on.  Usually for only an hour or two at a time though.  I have had more time but I am trying to beat Final Fantasy 13.  I am a little over halfway through so in another week or so I should beat it.

Anyway back to the title.  Yesterday in Altdorf I saw what I think to be a melee bright wizard.  I mean he was renown rank 43 with all primeval gear on.  He had a strength and ballistic jewelry on.  He also had a strength liniment on and had a strength taly in his soul weapon.  So I figure this is the first ever melee bright wizard out there. I can't quite figure out the ballistic jewelry, but oh well.  Here is a screenshot to prove it.

Still Here

I am still around just haven't had any bright ideas.  Also I have been concentrating on Final Fantasy 13 instead of WAR lately.  I will get back to playing WAR more when I beat Final Fantasy 13.

Guild Application

Guild application is up for testing now.  Here it is.

Spring is in the Air

So spring is coming upon us.  The sun is shining, birds are singing, and this is my busy time of the year.  I have so much going right now it isn't even funny.  I am an Assistant Track coach at my old high school, I play in a basketball league, and I am a youth group leader at my church.  With all this going on my WAR game play time is going to take a hit.  This kind of makes me sad since right now is the time for playing a lot because SCs are popping and I want my new two hander.  Also Final Fantasy 13 is coming out this Tuesday and I am excited for that as well.

What I Want to Happen

So I have been thinking and you know what I would like to see happen with the endgame is that they would have rotating cities.  Every two months or so they would change which cities that can be invaded.  Each king encounter would be a different encounter for the realm.  There would also be different runs for the Sentinel gear that people could do.  I think this would be awesome if they could do this.  I mean it would change up the encounters and bring excitement to the endgame with it always changing.  It could introduce new Warlord PQs as well and people wouldn't complain as much of the king difficulty.

I would also like to see a new endgame encounter where it requires you to have Sovereign Gear to be able to do it.  The new endgame would drop either jewelry pieces or cloak set which is better than the LoTD set.  I would love to see this happen.

The New Grind

So I find that this new system for the rvr weapons is pretty good.  I actually like it a lot.  I know they are talking about changing the prices for the weapons but I don't think they are really that bad.  I mean last night I finally got my conq. weapon and finally started earning invader insignias.  So it took me a week to get to the next level and I find that fine.  I wouldn't say I am one of the hardcore players but I play more than a casual so I am somewhere in the middle leaning more closer to hardcore.  I want these weapons to be rare and I don't want everyone having them in 2 or 3 weeks after they came out.  Sure you will have the really hardcore players getting them but if you lower the cost everyone will have them which shouldn't be the case.  I feel like the cost is just fine where it is at.  It is something to strive for and to do.

There is one thing I would change though and that is that the winning side of the SC gets either 2 or 3 insignias while the losing side gets 1 or 2.  That way there is actually an incentive to win the SC instead of just sitting there afk at the entrance which I have seen done.

I Beat The Game

Thats right I beat the game, which means I finally reached renown rank 80.  Yay for me, I am awesome.  I took a picture of my stats but like an idiot I forgot the screenshot at my home computer.  Now it is time for the fun part of just worrying about killing people instead of zone locks and renown.
