What is the most stressful thing in any MMO you have played before or for that matter any game you have played that requires co-op?  Well for me in all my MMO experience, which is just two by the way, I find the most stressful thing for me is the 7th boss of TotVL, because I am the one that has to call the colors out.  Now the first two stages are not bad for calling the colors out because you have some time to get the colors down, but when the third and fourth stage hit it gets kinda chaotic especially since I have to tank one of the adds.  I have to worry about the colors and then picking up an add as well, now that is a lot of pressure imo.  Then if someone dies on the third stage and you get to the fourth stage it adds even more because then you have to pay attention even more because the standard red to green to blue doesn't work anymore and you have to make sure two colors of the same don't touch at the end.  Its fun but still stressful.

So what are your stressful moments in any game?  It can be a story of just some fight or anything?  Lets see if I can get more than a couple comments on this.

PS I was talking to Dell Support the whole time I was typing this and they are not the sharpest tools in the shed. I told him what was wrong than had to repeat my self a couple of times just to get my point across.

Is everyone entitled to the end game gear in the game?  Are the casual players entitled to it?  In my opinion no casual gamers should not be able to get end game gear from any online game.  This is true for most MMOs.  WOW, FFXI, and Aion only the hardcore gamers get the end game gear and not the causals.  WAR is different and I don't know if that is a good thing or not.  Causal gamers in WAR can easily obtain Sov. Gear supposedly the best gear in the game.  They can experience the endgame content very easily especially with this new patch coming out and the new city instance.  From what I read every instance will get to stage 3 no matter what.  They are making the end game not very hard at all.

When I first came to WAR and MMOs in general I thought end game is only for the hardcore players and WAR was no exception in the beginning.  When the King was first killed I think it was 6 or so months after release and it took like 12 hours of playing just to kill him.  Now I think 12 hours is a little rough and it needed to be lowered down, but nowadays it is to accessible to all in my opinion.  I want it to feel like an accomplishment when we down the endgame instead now it is just whoever can get a warband together will down him.  I don't feel this is right and shouldn't be right.  Casuals are not entitle to easy gear but that is what they have right now.  Anyway just my 2 cents.

Oh and I was wrong in my other post about city changes.  You can bring in you warband I was just reading wrong.

New City Changes

Well yesterday Andy from Mythic release the notes from the city changes and I have to say that I like most of the things that he posted especially the Player Champions.  I find that to be pretty cool.  With that being said, I don't like that you the most you can get in there as a group is a 6 man.  I don't like that the other 3 groups will be random and you could get screwed over big time with who you get in your warband.  I just find it funny that Mythic is catering to the casual players with this new city.  I also don't like that both sides can earn high end gear from either defending or invading. I feel that the high end gear should only be earned if you invade the opposing realms city.  I guess we will just have to see how it goes.

So with the recent addition of all these bloggers does this mean WAR is growing.  I think it does.  I think with the resurgence of these bloggers is a good sign with WAR even with the latest billing fiasco.  I hope people realize that it isn't Mythic's fault for this billing problem but the people who are in charge of billing which is a billing agency.  Anyway I still think war is growing and it is a good sign for WAR with all the new blogs popping up.

How reliable are you?  When you say you are going to be there for a run or something do you actually show up when you say you are going to or do you show up 20 mins late?  Me personally when I say a time I will show up usually early and if anything maybe 5 minutes late.  I find it a pet peeve of mine when someone says they will show on a set time and they don't show up within 5 minutes of that time especially in an MMO for a dungeon run.  I can understand if something in real life gets and you are late but if you are please let someone else know that you will unless there is a death or you are in the hospital or something else grave happened to you.  So please be reliable, if you say you are going to show up please show up.

Who Is New

So I have been slacking on telling you people (thats right I said you people) about new blogs popping up.  Mainly because I have been lazy and I just didn't think about it.  Well that is getting remedy now.  If I miss anyone just tell me and i will put you in here.

First off we have Erbse, he has been blogging for sometime and I am just now getting to him.

Then we have Keagen, who is a magus on my server and his just started up not to long ago and it is an interesting read about Maguses (I guess that is right).

We also have Vauleen from Volkmar.  They just started blogging and I like them so far.

Scary Booster is back playing WAR and he is enjoying it so far.

Last but not least My Guild Leader  decided to start up a blog and let me warn you it is NSFW.  He also tells it like it is and holds nothing back.  If he feels like calling you out he will, so enjoy reading his blog.

I am sure there are others I am missing and if so just tell me and I will put you on my awesome list to the side and you will then be famous, just like me.

Who Gets the Loot

So I am nearing having every single end game piece of gear.  I only need my chest and boots for me to get full sovereign, which is either 3 king runs away unless either of those drop before that.  I only need my chest and gloves to be full tyrant and well that is a crap shoot as when I will get those.

I probably won't be full tyrant for a long time if ever.  The reason is that I will always pass on the chest piece until everyone else has it in the group because I won't use it at all except maybe when I am tanking but I can tank everything right now as is so there is no point in me getting it when tyrant is awesome for healers as well as dps.

I feel like the person who will use it should always get the loot first in the group.  Like in a king run I feel like if my chest piece drops and I am the only rr 80 knight in the warband then I should be the only person rolling on it, but say my boots drop and there are other knights in the warband that can wear them then they should roll as well.  As long as you can use it when you get it then I am fine with anyone rolling on an item.

Crests have been a discussion before with people who are not even 40 getting royal crest when they drop and I feel they shouldn't get them.  The problem isn't as big now with how easy it is to earn royals, but it is still there.  I feel like to roll need on invader you have to be rr 45, warlord rr 55, and royal rr 65.  Now the reason why these renown levels is because you are getting close to being able to use the gear and thus should start collecting a little before.  

So when you are in a group do you pass on loot that you could use but it benefits someone else more than you in your group or do you just roll and don't care because hey it is something you don't have and that you want?  If it helps someone else out RvR more than me I will pass.  What about you?

Hello and Psssh

Hello all, how are you doing this beautiful day?  I haven't been neglecting you guys, well I kind of have, but that is because this is a busy, busy time for me, but don't worry I am still playing and I am also working on a project. I am making a nice little movie that I think you all will enjoy greatly.  This movie has inspired me to do this.  That movie is probably one of the best Warhammer Online fan made movies I have seen.  So yea that is what I am working on plus a few other small things I have rattling around in my head.

Now on to the Psssh part.  I would like to say congrats to Garwaar, Weirt, Mykiel, and Andrew (If I spelled your name wrong to bad didn't feel like looking it up so I went off the top of my head) for getting invited to Mythic Headquarters to get an interview with those guys there.  Now you may be saying but why are you saying Psssh, well I live 2 hours away and they wouldn't even need to fly me out or anything like that.  I would do a lot just to get an interview with them because whether you believe it or not I do have a lot of questions to ask them.

With that out of the way I can understand them not picking me, because I haven't been as active as usual on the blog and there is bigger than mine and probably more informative.  Oh well I may just drive down in spite of them and crash there little party.  Haha wouldn't that be something to get kicked out of Mythic Headquarters.  So if you don't hear back from me then I am in jail and did something stupid at Mythic.
