Happy 19th Birthday 4chan!




What builds are you guys running for pvp?
right now I'm:
>spear/rapier
>[sweep, perforate, skewer],[flourish, riposte, fleche]
>65 str, 250 dex, 200 con
>Light armor, all resilient with non perk pieces from the pvp track
>Fortifying perforate (hitting all three hits puts you at fort cap) and keenly jagged on spear (crits refresh all bleed) with deadly flourish on gloves, bleeding sweep on legs, and sundering riposte on rapier.

Basically I'm running a bleed build, skewer, sweep, and crits all apply bleeds. Looking into making some hatchet and sns builds soon though.

I got banned for a week when this launched for shit talking trannys, kind of killed the game for me entirely. Is it actually good?
>>
>>684201
I've only played the first 3 weeks or so. All I remember is the fact the entire game had like 5 different enemy models total and there was this very strange economy going on where everyone seemingly would just run out of money
>>
Gotta admit, the game feels good different in the PTR. The event stuff is nice too. Think I’m gonna get back into it.
>>
>>684201
Yeah it's good
>>
>>684201
are you permabanned?
>>
>>685228
Nah i can come back, i did come back but it kind of lost its luster after the ban. But if its improved since launch i may come back i dunno. It kind of feels like a dead game, no one talks about it. I was actually considering just playing WoW again.
>>
>>685232
pvp is really fun now, 3v3 arenas got added too.
>>
>>685241
Do you guys have a guild or something I could join with if I choose to go back? Did the faction wars become better? Before I left it was one sided for purple by a lot, felt kinda shitty.
>>
>>684201
>Is it actually good?
Is a shit game that killed itself. You may actually obsess with it.
>>
>>684586
i unironically came back for the last patch, it's bretty good now
>>
was watching some pvp vids on yt and it honestly looks pretty fun now
I originally played on release and only got to level 30, stopped because I was fucking bored out of my mind just grinding the stupid quests

Has questing and leveling improved?
>>
>>685292
I obsess with it? Not sure what you mean but thanks for letting me know.
>>
>>685292
esl niggers need to get off my board
>>
I have a friend who's weirdly obsessed with this game and insists it's not a failure.
He seems to think it was "Ahead of its time" and the "MMO community doesn't know what it wants".
And it's like, no nigger. People didn't fucking want a solo-focused barely multiplayer game with 3 skills and 6 milion fetch quests.
>>
>>686180
I really really dont understand what the fuck they were thinking with the quest system, terrible, boring in the worst ways.
>>
>>686199
From what I can tell, it's literally just something they threw together as fast as possible because they basically had to rebuild the entire game once they realised a full loot open PVP game wasn't going to sell.
>>
>>686200
And it definitely feels that way, makes me never want to go back to it again. WoW even has far better,.
>>
>>686180
I mean this person is half right
>The MMORPG community doesn't know what it wants
This is true
To me even what you touch on isn't why it failed. All quests eventually become shitty fetch quests or some variation. There's only so much you can do
>Kill X
>Kill Y 20 times
>Collect Item 20 times
>Talk to this NPC
Take any MMORPG and 90% of their quests will fall into those categories. The trick though is to put a fancy wrapper around them to make them look engaging. WoW does a shit job at this and nobody gives a shit about their quests. Even though they're the same as new world. Gw2 does this weird "Be in the area" type of quests, but its the same objectives. ESO does it too, but they have voice acting and overall an engaging story side of the questing. Point is that questing sucks in any game.

New World failed for a few major reasons.
>Shit horizontal progression support
Casuals love this shit. Collecting housing. Collecting skins. Collecting furniture. ESO is mainly fueled by this crowd. Same with Gw2. NW barely had any
>Taxes
Again this appeals to a very small subset. People getting taxed up the ass by players who own towns turned them off. Why both? They'll just go back to WoW than deal with some PvPers bullshit. There was no incentive to "deal" with players who run these towns.
>Boring world
The world looked boring. The lore was boring. The monsters were boring. Still is boring. They did a shit job at making a captivating world
>Art Style
I get it they were trying to be different. But it looks like shit. Feels like you're walking around a Halloween party. Most MMORPGs feel this way, but New World made it too...close to real.
>Travel System
Travel/Azoth system sucks. It barely exists now, but should be removed entirely. Just make fast travel free and be done with it
>Launch shit
Unshared banks and auction houses. Dungeon keys. Nobody wanted this shit
>Lack of casual content
If you're a casual or even solo player, there's very little for you to do
>>
>>686272
>Lack of variety
They added 2 dungeons since launch. But at launch the choices of endgame PvE content was shit
>Direction
The game didn't really give players a good idea of what to actually do in the game. Players got to endgame, felt lost, got annoyed, quit
>Expertise gear system
Its a shitty system. Was 100x worse at launch. Still bad. It doesn't feel satisfying. The reward system in general is shit and you end up ignoring most rewards till you get gs 600+. Which is a good amount of playtime into the game
>Leveling system
There wasn't enough quests or not enough ones that reward exp. Got to be a boring slog very very fast. You HAD to level crafting else you were going to go stir crazy

Those were the major issues. It wasn't the content of the quests. It wasn't the skill or combat system. Players have "tolerated" much worse. It was the things above that really killed the game and why it failed. And most of these problems exist because either the game started as a PvP game and couldn't be implemented in time and/or the general lack of MMORPG experience on the dev team.
>>
>>686180
New world is the best at pvp and it's not even close. Also you have 6 active abilities and a ton of passives and perks, plus dodges and 4 consumeables. You clearly haven't played the game and just want to shit on it because it's the hip thing to do. Anyway here's some pvp videos:

3v3s:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PdZP7wQd9k

20v20s:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyzb5_s98CE

50v50s:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tNa_6Rcc3I

OWPVP:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJ6VgE0z7g4
>>
>>686568
Not to mention light and heavy attacks, if you want to compare it to a tab-target mmo, you have:
6 Active Abillities
4 Consumeables
Light and Heavy Attack
Dodge
Which adds up to 13 buttons to press for combat, which isn't that much less complex compared to tab-target mmo's
>>
>>686570
oh I forgot block (i never use it)
so that's 14
>>
>>686568
I think a lot of people would dislike the PvP more if they added in gear scaling. I think a lot of these encounters people showcase are with people of uneven gear qualities. Not saying skill doesn't have anything to do with it. But there's a lot of battles people fight where they have a gear advantage. Since its fairly common in MMO PvP. I'm also not a fan of weapon switching. Prefer games like Albion or WoW in terms of one weapon then a set of skills.

But PvP in new world will be pushed to the side. It's not casual friendly enough/too niche. They'll be focusing on PvE going forward (like every MMO) because that's where the money is. PvP in new world is even more niche because of the skill ceiling and how effective one person can get against inexperienced people.
>>
>>684201
game is dead
>>
>>686200
Yeah Ark and Rust were huge bombs
>>
>>686785
there's 23k playing right now
>>
>>686800
>23k playing
>no subs
>shit cash shop
it's dead
hmu when they launch the last ditch PvP servers before shutting the game down. could be a fun few months
>>
What are dexfags like these days? Played at launch and it felt pretty shit compared to just being some unga bunga axefaggot
>>
>>686936
I think bow is fairly strong right now. But yeah that being said I think strength weapons and magic weapons are still meta. When I tried PvP, in terms of what kind of weapons I was fighting, it felt unchanged.
>>
>>686979
Shame. I might check it out but back in the day dexfagging was a struggle outside of flagged overworld PvP which I actually enjoyed. Checking in on the cash shop I'm kinda surprised they've not made more use of it in terms of aesthetic items you can buy. Doesn't look like they've added much.
>>
>>686782
>I think a lot of people would dislike the PvP more if they added in gear scaling.
I'm assuming you meant like. And the game had pvp gear scaling. It had the best implementation of gear scaling I've ever seen in an MMO. That ended when a streamer cried about not being able to kill someone half his level after he was boosted to 60 by his fans giving him stuff for town board missions so he had no idea how to actually play the game. Just like stagger was removed because asmongold cried about it. Streamers ruined New World desu.
>>
>>686979
melee dex wrecks right now (spear)

are there any servers that are pvp/gvg oriented like valhalla was at the start of the game? i quit after most big guilds stopped playing, but heard the game was getting good updates recently, wanted to give it a try.
>>
>>687495
>pvp/gvg
all of them?
gvg is the literal endgame
>>
>>687495
if you mean open world pvp, none of them. no one flags.
>>
>>687551
Yeah they do, but only during influence pushing and capping forts.
>>
>>687554
yes zerg pvp missions. i mean just doing random shit in the world to stumble across 1v1s/small group fights, which is the most fun type of pvp in the game and the reason why i will never play this game again until they launch proper pvp servers.
>>
>>687599
Yeah that kind of pvp is hard to come across, pretty much only in the white zones farming ori
>>
>>686909
I don't get people like this, it's in the top 50 of games played on steam. The only problem they have is that they don't know how to make skins.
>>
>>687701
It's an MMO. It needs a constant revenue stream to justify its existence.
>>
>>687799
It's Amazon, I have a feeling it has one but I don't want to know what it is.

Idk, they bought twitch, I'm sure they have plans for a distribution platform, I'm sure New World is somehow in their plans to steal customer info or sell ads/deals to customers or some other shitty shit.
>>
>>687531
my experience with endgame content was either it's a powerhouse going through every gvg with ease until a similar powerhouse was established(which is the most fun if you get in), or a bunch of guilds who fill their wars with randoms, which aren't exactly the most fun if there are no game plans, but every guild has its approach to that problem.
>>687551
open-world pvp was already hard to come by when everyone has already reached their bis, so it's either opr or wars that are actively sought after for pvp content, it's unfortunate to see that there aren't that many random encounters that are not related to guild objectives.
>>
How long has it been since they added a new weapon?
>>
>>688868
April - Blunderbuss
>>
>>688880
Didn't that come out like last year?
Greatsword when?
>>
>>687837
The real answer is Amazon runs it for pennies on the dollar since they run it using AWS and they don't have to pay customer prices for servers.
>>
>>687799
This is a myth, fucking minecraft babs can run servers with more players then new world or most niche dogshit MMOs like it.

Lets be real MMO at this point is a marketing term to say that this game is going to be GRIND AF to suck as much of a sub out of you as possible, no one tries to make a good MMO anymore, because that would mean they would have to make a good game first, instead we get skinnerboxes designed to waste as much time as possible with carrots on a stick promising you'll have fun when you finally reach 'end game' only to find a game that is dead AF and a community that is nothing buttoxic and introverted whales simping for ERPfags.

New World doesn't have a sub fee, it's actually a good game underneath all the bugs and it's starting to show now that Amazon has been better at fixing and preventing them. ERP doesn't exist in New World, and there's actually a decent amount of free content updates despite not having a sub fee.

>>

i wasn't the guy you replied to. just saw an opportunity to post my old la creatura.png from the beta

I've stuck it out since launch and now i'm sadly cursed to stay because the combat in every other MMO is an absolute snooze fest in comparison.

I'm running LS/VG 300 Focus/165 INT/ 50 Con, 4x Shirking 4x Resilient 3x Freedom.
>>
>>685241
Should keep getting better as well with instanced wars and mock wars coming the future, hopefully some easy level designer stuff like another OPR Map or slightly bigger 5v5 Arenas.
>>
>>689347
why won't they just give us a couple real pvp servers? it's not like it costs amazon a lot of money to host a server.
>>
>>689400
I would imagine it's because you need the PVE players to keep the economy going for basic shit like potions and honing stones etc
>>
>>689403
you'd still have to do pve on a pvp server, genius
>>
>>689420
hell yeah lemme go join PVP server to take over the jobs that the PVE players fulfilled on my previous server.

Oh, this person is farming mats? Time for open world pvp. Nevermind he is using Rapier and has no intention of fighting.
>>
>>689427
Yes, exactly. Fighting over resources is much more fun.
>>
>>684201
The game had a million exploits and alot of the systems are shit and pvp is one sided last time I remember so probably not.
>>
How is this game in it’s current state?

I’m looking for an MMORPG to play. This looks appealing because you only have to buy the game. No subscription or p2w bullshit.
>>
When I heard they were creating a Colonial Style MMO this is not what I had in mind honestly.
I know nigger lovers wouldnt make a game that deals with white people blasting the fuck out of inferior retarded red skins, but still this could have been so much cooler and better.
>>
>>689609
The game's original main enemy faction actually was evil natives. That was all scrapped ofc and part of the reason why there are so few enemy models. If this game existed in a vacuum free of Amazon corporate and streamer influence it would have been fantastic. The original devs had some really great ideas so I'm guessing they were all or mostly White men.
>>
>>689604
Shit. There's only like 3 people actively shilling this shit on 4chan and they even admit that they keep tabs on the archives for any threads that mention New World.

>>
>>689634
Would have been soooo much better, the enemies are incredibly fucking boring. Another thing too is that you arrive in this new world that is basically fully established, big cities and what not. They should have had us colonizing a space, putting up our own stuff. A colonial world where you cant even colonize anything lol. Wtf.
>>

>>

I suppose the only way is up from here, time to see what Brimstone Sands brings to the table.

Open World PVP Hotspots is a big thing for me, similar to Great Cleave when Arena was first released. Peaceful moments just waiting for a company to start some shit and then you get 200 people fighting each other.

You can confirm this yourself by checking the archives. Hell, even the OP pic is something that's been spammed for shitposting if you look up the image hash on the archives as well. I have a feeling the first two posters are the same, overall this game is shilled as fuck. Low quality threads spammed on /v/ only get 5 posts before dying, and it can't even survive as a general so they had to come to this niche board. I will never not shit on this game whenever I get the chance.

So I just got a decent desktop and New world was one of the first games I installed. I have no idea if I picked a good server or not, but it seemed populated. I'm on Us East Marramma?

I joined the Mauraders and took a town project on. I got jumped and killed. I got the game to get into the PvP and sieges and what not. I'm still in the starter town.

Does the main story take me other places or am I essentially on my own. I don't have any friends to play, but I'd like to. I went to the companies on the server list, and found one with a lot of people, but I couldnt click on it to join for some reason.

Thanks!
>>
>>701444
Checked.

The main story does take you to other places on the map but it's not very engaging, they've just revamped the entire levelling process from 1-25 to make it more focused around the lore with dialogue, cutscenes and better quests etc. This is still in the PTR though, so it won't be in the live game until the Brimstone update.

If you want to join a company, ask in faction chat for one that fits your playstyle. Getting into Wars will take a while though, will require you to be at level 60 with decent gear and likely a VOD from OPR to show the company leaders that you can play competently.

The PvE'rs in this game are such fucking faggots. People are asking for a PvP fresh start server and the little bitchmade basedos are crying about it incessantly. The remaining 15k players that are PvE fags dont realize that nearly a million people left because PvE is not sustainable.

>>702542
I would reinstall this shitheap if they made a PvP server. The only fun I had in the game was open world PvP.
>>
>>702543
Same. The first two to three weeks of the game were fucking awesome. Its been proven in this game that PvE isn't enough to keep the majority entertained. If people knew this game was going to receive serious attention in PvP then people would definitely come back. Also lol at the faggots that say there wouldn't be an economy because there wouldnt be crafters. Thats perfectly fine by me. All the negatives they bring up about why PvP will suck is a positive. The best one of all is when they say "PvP servers will be full of toxicity" cool, and fucking good. Sorry I don't want to ERP at the town board and run dungeons with faggots that can only left click but want real grimey PvP.

it's just retards upset at the mega-companies monopolizing endgame activities thinking the same thing won't happen if they start on a new server. If you're a new player then go for it, but it really makes no difference. you won't be able to turn PvP on within a day as half the pop will have outlevel'd you and by the time you reach 600GS and can start participating in the game, the server will be indiscernible from the previous ones

What's up nerds? Saw New World, and was thinking of picking it up. I keep reading how better it is (not necessarily perfect) since it's launch and it's got my curiosity. I'm hearing that a new "expansion" will be out in October, and I wanted to give it a shot. I'm also reading about fresh start server (rumors?) coming at some point. I was hoping to hear some of your own personal opinions on joining up now, or waiting? I don't have any friends that play so it's not like I have an obligation to start, stop, or wait for a certain server.

What draws me is the territorial warfare bit, but the more I read the more it seems like it's impossible to get involved due to player limits on the wars themselves? How true is this, and should I even bother (I'm reading that it's an end game thing anyhow). Additionally, I'm not trying to join dead server either, so any server recs for ones that are decently populated but not ded would be nice (EST US).

Thanks!

Wait for the brimstone sands update, fresh servers are confirmed for those who want to do the new leveling.

>>709650
that's good and all but why does it matter to anyone that was already playing? The 3 or 4 global servers were already full all the time. The elite guilds won't interact with any of these new players, the 50x50 wars won't change, the only thing that will affect people already playing is that they'll roll over the newbies on OPR and arenas, just that. World PvP is dead.

Don't get me wrong I love the game it's just that it will too much effort from the devs to make it a good game, it's not a good game atm. I'm >>700594 so I probably am the retard with most hours in this thread. Right now there's nothing in the game that will make me come back so I think it's funny people celebrating a higher player count, it changes nothing

When is one ready for mutations?

I've finally gotten all my expertise to 600 (601 in some cases, the fuck is up with that?) and I want to finally start working towards making a proper build with legendary pieces. my current GS is 589 which prevents me from going into any of the M1 groups that all have a 600GS req. I have odds and ends of gear I've picked up from spamming regular dungeons so I could get 600GS, but it would be significantly worse damage / stat wise compared to what I'm using. Is there some other way for me to get geared up to participate in mutations? because regular dungeons are draining at this point, same shit over and over again only to get 1, maybe 2 pieces of legendary loot that has useless stats for my build

If you aren't lvl 60 you should wait for the fresh servers and start there. The new leveling is 10 times faster. You can do 1-60 in under 24 hours without even tryharding
>>
>>710668
I don't know where to start with this. You don't spam buttons in either GW2 or ESO and there's no thought process in XIV or WoW.
It's closest to ESO, each weapon has its own bar and you can swap between 2 of them and this operation is optimal. Biggest difference would be 3 hotkeys per bar in NW as opposed to 5.

Not true. People who have played the game for the entire year have a greater understanding than you chucklefucks coming back, they'll know all the tricks to get the absolute best advantages over you. then you'll complain that they're too strong again or something. At least on the regular servers everything is stabilized. Fresh start servers give you the illusion that everything is up for grabs, but really that's only true for the veteran companies.

the combat is the best we have in a mmo so far. There're some problems with desyncs and it is still unbalanced but you can't have a better combat in any other mmo, it's not even close tbf

I probably have more hours than anyone in this thread. I said you'll do the same quests but less of them to get to 60, just that. The first guy I quoted said the leveling was dogshit and implying the new leveling experience would solve this problem, which isn't true. It will be the same shit, just less of it.
>>
>>711644
The leveling being dogshit is the result of having to spam 100 hours of
>kill 10 turkeys x1000
>collect 20 tree branches x1000
>collect 10 iron ores x1000

The reworked leveling makes it way more enjoyable because you move through different environments faster so it doesn't get mind numbingly boring and the zones look amazing.
I quit the launch at lvl 45 and reinstalled the game a week ago then got lvl 60 on the ptr and it was fun all the way to 60.
>>
>>711651
idk why you guys are excited for this, the major flaws are still in the game. You're just eating marketing shit up, the quality of the game is the same as before
>>
>>711684
Its because you have 2k hours played so you have other issues with the game. People that quit because of the leveling will have way more fun with the new servers.

New World is going to have a huge spike in players for about 2 months after Brimstone Sands, and then another huge dropoff in players. Player retention will remain poor since post launch casualized the features many players got into the game for
>Stagger
>PvP
And replaced them with casual features like a dungeon finder.

I cannot see the playerbase sticking around for more than 3 months, and thats being generous.
>>
>>711753
>3 months
3 months after the release of the fresh start servers, not Brimstone Sands*
>>
>>711753
That number will drop off even faster when exploits are reintroduced. The only reason they went relatively exploit-free the past year is because people don't care, but funnily enough 2 exploits were found just last week because of the anticipation of the comeback. It's going to be a shitshow.

stagger was absolute shit. You would know that if you played on the beta that had it. I agree with you on the rest
>>
>>711968
fresh start servers are redundant and a waste of resources. all it does is profit RMTers and destroy established community servers. everyone will abandon their main server to go to the new server, most of the new players clamoring for it will quit anyway, then the player base is split with it inevitably getting merged to the old servers except now there's less players overall because old and new quit.

even with the actual system stagger is badly implemented and sometimes it straight up bugs out. Now imagine if they didn't reworked it all. You should stop listening to schizos on youtube and play the game more, you'll understand.
>>
>>712364
I did play it. Combat was way better with stagger.
>>
>>712383
you're straight up lying if you played both versions of the game and still thinks stagger was better. Did you ever played a war? Or any other pvp encounter where you had more than a 1x1? Hell even in 1x1 the stagger version was full of bullshit where you could get stunlocked if the other player had sightly better connection than you, you're full of shit mate. With the exception of some unbalanced weapons and perks the pvp is in the better state it ever was right now

>The investigation phase is complete, penalties are being adjusted but not yet lifted over the next few days, while the team removes the items and gold. This takes some time. More info next week.

so definitely duped items and gold confirmed, probably why they're not working on fresh start servers until they clean up the normal servers first

so how the fresh start servers will work out? Don't they have server transfers? What's the point then?

If this game gets heavily discounted/free with prime I'll be glad to try it. It's a shame that they chose to go with this server style (Lot's of small ones instead of a single interconnected one like BDO).
>>
>>712919
this game has been 50% for a long time

>>712922
Sorry I meant HEAVILY, like 75%. Let's be honest, the game ain't worth even 25% but I'm a good Samaritan.

megaservers, dungeon finders, etc ruin a mmo. in small servers you get to know the other people playing
>>
>>712433
Nope. Removing stagger ruined the combat.
>>
>>712926
If thats you stance, I advise you to forget this game exists for the time being - anything else is a dumb waste of your time. There is no chance the game will go on discount now of all times - around the time the expansion is coming out and player count went up.

can you use umbral shards on a 2 perk item to turn it into a 3 perk item? I have some 597 named gloves I want the legendary variant of, and I see on nwdb comments of people saying you can upgrade items to 3 perk, but I don't see any sort of direct confirmation anywhere other than it apparently was happening on the PTR at some point

also what is the fastest umbral shard collection method?
>>
>>714144
If it has a legendary version on NWDB then yes with Umbral Shards you can upgrade it to the 3 perk legendary version.

Fasted Umbral Shards come from doing your daily Gypsum once your expertise reaches 600GS, then just run mutations.

Here's a list of improvements I wrote off the top of my head since launch I wrote for someone who asked on /v/, I'm sure there's a bunch I'm missing:

>2 new dungeons
>1 new weapon
>Instanced wars reduced lag
>server caps increased to 2500 from 2000
>Expedition orbs removed
>High watermark removed and gypsum system for earning umbral in every activity in the game
>Profession rework for mastery and rewards
>removed take downs in our and 3v3 arenas
>Added 3v3 arenas
>added proximity events / quests that are random
>added random mobs that have good loot if you can find their spawn
>Added mutator expeditions for the low level expeditions
>Game performance has dramatically increased
>Added music profession
>Overhauled weapon and armor perks
>Made it so weapons and armor drop relevant stats / perks
>Added movement speed buff when running on road
>Added a fuckton of fast travel shrines and dramatically reduced fast travel costs
>Reworked armor dodging and weapons so melee can actually chase down ranged classes
>Reduced housing taxes by 10x
>Reduced leveling time by a shitton
>Made it so you can run while using your inventory
>Dramatically increased town storage
>Made a dungeon finder for expeditions and mutators
>pvp reward track so you can earn near-bis pvp armor for playing pvp (kinda like how wow does it with conquest gear)

What's that like for someone who stopped playing at around mid 30's?
Can't decide if I should start playing a new character when the expansion comes or just continue on now
>>
>>715498
Leveling is currently reduced by like 50% right now from launch I think, but when fresh comes out it will take less that 24 hours /played to reach 60 which people on the ptr have been able to do, who knows if they change the ptr though.
>>
Fresh start servers that get opened up for transfers in 3 months. Big whoop. Give me PvP servers or no reinstall, Amazon.
>>
>>715502
That sounds a lot quicker than what I thought it would be.
Are there any reasons to explore the lower level zones at that point? I remember there being collectibles like journal pages but do you get any bonuses from general exploration apart from whatever gathering nodes you may find?

Does this have have an actual economy that is new player friendly or is it still dominated by exploits?
>>
i wanted to level professions while i level my character, but professions take too much time compared to levels.

The main leveling in this game is just fine, the main questline works great, I see no problem in leveling to 60. But i have to drop gathering and just focus on getting to 60, and then go back to gathering after that. Which is not what I wanted.
>>
>>715839
I'm probably gonna get flamed for this but I never had any issues with the economy and I pretty much spend my gold as I make it, besides the pvp track gear makes gearing way easier
>>
>>715918
How's the endgame loop? Is this just a chore simulator with little to no social interaction? Am I gonna be grinding some dumb shit for 1000 hours before other players acknowledge my existence?
>>
>>715920
I just spam opr and 3v3s so it's basically low fantasy Fortnite for me
>>
>>715839
The economy is generally stabilized, but not really in a good way. Companies make millions of gold legitimately by owning the towns, though they are changing that soon. As a regular player I find the hype over the next patch comical, it's definitely some nice content but the term expansion has been thrown a lot. It's just one new zone.
>>
>>715929
people talk about "fresh servers" all the time and then believe in their own echo about fresh servers coming. And then they'll complain about them not being there at launch.

the life skills are aids. you can't make anything genuinely useful outside of a couple potions and bags before 200 and it takes way too fucking long to get there. not to mention you have to craft tens of thousands of worthless low level items as part of the process. I had all these cool 500 weapon recipes I wanted to try out but by the time I was able to craft one it was A. not worth the material cost and B. outleveled and out-raritied by everything else I had at that point

I played on launch and only got to level 30 should I start playing now or wait for the fresh start servers?

How viable is musket in PvE vs bosses? I always heard it did terrible DPS and it's only value is in PvP for high alpha damage, but recently I've seen a couple people say in game that when used on bosses you can do similar or even higher DPS than weapons like bows. Is this true, is it comparable? Do you have to spec a certain way as to make all other weapons useless or something?
>>
>>716622
Afaik muskets are not used AT ALL in dungeons and you won't get invited to mutators if you even try to join one as a musket player, I think spear, great axe, hammer, hatchet are all good for melee pve dps
>>
>>716625
yeah, I main spear but I like to keep a ranged weapon in my second slot for when a boss is in some sort of AOE that I can't be close for or the healer is dead / I'm on last life and don't want to risk point blank for whatever reason. Considered hatchet but it seemed kind of redundant to my spear even with all the throwing stuff. Just wondering if musket does a strong amount of DPS for those scenarios or if it's completely worthless and I'd be better off with bow / blunder.
>>
Is there any reason to ever wear all light armor? Seems like it's just wasted equip load = less resistances

>>

Only reason to wear 5 light is if you play sword and shield
>>
>>716653
All that matters is your equip weight, the best armor in while still light is med chest light everything else
>>
What are some good weapons and builds? before I stopped playing I was using musket/rapier is that still good?
>>
>>716922
Musket/rapier is good but only for sniping basically, I'd try spear rapier if you want to try out melee, bow is also extremely op
>>
>>716630
Bow is solid for this.
Musket is fine for PVP because boom headshot but a weapon style with fuckloads of downtime is bad for hp spongefests.

you know those basic things in wow, or every mmo really, where your basic talk appears as a bubble above your head, and to people nearby ?
or you click on another driver to select them/ whisper?

how is that the first thing you implement in an mmo is beyond me. A player walks past me, and its a nightmare to actually say something to them. It just boggles my mind that the game doesnt have this at ground zero.
>>
>>717370
Any public thing you say is in a bubble above you though??? You don't click on people because there's no cursor decouple except in menu, they have point + h as the substitute for that.

No, the game is only 40 bucks anyway I'm pretty sure

Im only level 16 but I'm really enjoying the freedom of being able to switch weapons and combat styles on the fly.
This is a huge plus for me where I would normally have to constantly re-roll to try things and eventually get bored. Now I can switch shit up just because.

Whats a good pairing for the war hammer thematically? I tried hammer + spear but I dont like having 2 two-handers equipped.
I've tried WH + Blunderbuss. Smash into the ground then shutgun their faces. Pretty good.
I've tried WH + Hatchet. Knock em down then get hacking but the startup is a bit slow and it's almost always better to just keep hammering.
I've tried bow + hatchet/spear. Get them low then go feral when they get into melee but I prefer the WH aesthetically.
>>
>>718505
WH+GA
WH+S&S
WH+BB

Can't go wrong with any of them really.
>>
I'm just gonna play when the expac drops.
Not waiting even longer for faggot "fresh" servers that will likely be a mess anyway.
