So my NA brothers, what server and faction are you guys thinking about? I'm fairly set on Ollo or Aranzeb, but I still need to do some more investigating on which guilds are going where. Definitely going West though, that was decided a while ago.
>want to try out this game
>download about half the game before I took a break from downloading
>one week later, the game doesn't recognize it and redownload
Its like you guys are telling me to not play this game.
So when I place a farm house, do I have to build it within 3 days or can I take my time? I think it said something about the construction site being attackable after 3 days... but other ppl said it stays as long as I pay taxes for it, does anyone know more?
>mfw that futilez guy quoted the first half of the dahuta - kyprosa argument and ignored everything from picfag onwards
Because no one should have to visit that cesspool of a forum.
>It doesn't matter if you prove I'm wrong as long as I ignore you
Dunno man, I know it's hipster as fuck and looks like a cyber punk reject hair style, but something about it just seems tribal and brutal to me. Besides almost all but two of the hairstyles are even worse than that one.
yuroshit gonna be yuroshit
if you get even slightly decent ping on any of the na servers it's already looking to be the better option versus all your french german br cramped shit tier servers
Daily reminder that the russian are trying to lure us to Dahuta don't fall for it anons! stay strong for mother moot!
I r-really need the v-vocaroo.
I love your voice.
Way ahead of you. I voted Eanna even though I'm not Euro. You guys deserve a comfy low key RP server like the NAs do. Not everyone who plays this game wants to be a tryhard. A wound down RP server is very idea and attractive and at least one server should get the privilege and clearly it won't be Dahuta.

Guys I'm so undecided, I know which classes are good, but I can't decide on the archetype, anyone know which is more gear dependant and overall more desired in groups and pirating? I'd like to say moneymaking, but I'm guessing making money is going to be strictly limited to picking up cototn and shit like that right?
archerfaggot with MLG leetskills from max range supporting from the back
rapemage who will die like a sneeze
heaweavebro that will touch your leg next to the campfire
meleecannonfodder berserking and tigerstriking and then pretty much useless after 2 or 3 kills
which one would you like with you and become friends forever?
Oh, man, I wonder when that happened. I always played when TC was in 4th place. Wish I was there this year when they got into the tier 1 bracket.
More likely due to holding more Oceanic players. Other servers have always outpopped during primetimes and daytime.
I-i can't anon i have t-to play with m-my guild + i'm too shy to talk to p-people anyway especially girls i'm w-weird ;-;
I'm a cute Chinese girl does that count
pic related its me
>Not being a cute Chinese girl
what is wrong with you anon :3
C-can I put some of m-my faggotry in you?
I mean anal sex
Been watching this for the past week or so, feeling pretty hype for this release now. How hard is it to play as a self sustained trader and make money? I heard you can level up by just trading as well, thats true right? If so, im looking to play a full out trader and just run big in the economy. Was thinking of playing Harani as they have faster gathering/logging time
you mean this dream right?
You faggots just dont lurn does yuhs. You aint havin fun, you just along for da ride. you're like dogs cant remember 2 minutes ago, just want to taste that bone. but they keep fuckin you right in the ass, with the same mistakes and the same shit you played yesterday. see you guise for black gold disappointment tuesday
anyone has a link for the livestream?
that's happening soon right?
a-anon this is all so suddenly, what's your IGN so we can do this through ERP? ;3c
What is the fastest way to level? Going to be playing this at release and I just want to hit 50 as fast as possible. Haven't played the betas or anything but I'll be playing in the head start.
What I know so far: Overachieve every quest. Is there anything else? What should I dump my labor on?
>implying your faggotry is not 4 inches at most
Go to Auriora straight away, swimming there should only take a hour do all of the non-combat quests there, that should get you to 30-32 alone. Then try farming some of the mobs there.
Problem with playing as a tradesman is that you'll have to be working cross-continental runs eventually, which means you'll quickly be ruined by PvP.
Unless you join a massive guild to help you out, but that sort of takes away the fun dont you think?
You can also play it safe by sticking to your own continent, but that quickly grows old and you'll see less profit.
But yeah, you can definitely level up by trading and doing agriculture. You'll be limited by your Labor points though.
Hm, ok, i saw the stuff about planning trade routes and selling cross regions and stuff and im fucking hype as shit to get to a point where i can do that. Only problem is, is that i barely play MMO's, never mind trading in them. Have a lot of trading experience from a good 2 years on Path of Exile though.
Making it from point A to just about point B can be done by thinking, but the problem is that the places you sell your wares to are always in the same place. Those places are exactly where criminals will camp for you.
It's kind of stupid how little risk there is to piracy compared to trading. You'll most likely earn more Gilda Stars by camping Freedich waiting for poor traders to come ashore rather than making the trade packs and sailing there yourself.
So, what class will you be rolling on live, /vg/?
I'm going with pic related, seems like a solid build. I was Ebonsong during OB but I got bored of Songcraft.
Huh, if thats true i might head into piracy then. I still need to look up a lot of stuff on the game as i have barely looked at it and know literally nothing other than the 4 races and how skills work. I'll be playing with a few friends who will most likely be going dps/tank classes so if i need help transporting shit, they'll be able to help.
I don't have any Korea experience, but as far as I'm concerned there'll be massive +100 player guilds focusing mostly on piracy that will haunt the seas with larger warships.
A mere 6-man trade run will just be crushed by these guys.
Unless you join a calmer server this will most likely be the reality for traders.
Other than good karma there are no true benefits to playing as police. You won't get trade packs to sell or anything.
I wish you'd get some sort of rewards for killing wanted players / pirates.
They've got the whole bounty hunter thing going on.
>+100 player guilds
Well fuck, im way out of my league here then.
Time to stick to one continent.
It would be a nice and easy way to get loot though, looting the looters
Not in the slightest.
StoneArrow is ideal with GHA leather which you can snag up while running it as a healer. Only the Stone Cloth healing gear will be a pain to get.
fuck with muh max conflict people
send all rpers into the german/french server
Greater Howling Abyss.
It's the "pre-raid" lvl 50 dungeon. It drops gear equivalent to Magnificent quality.
Attributes in order of quantity:
Plate: Str + Sta + Agil
Leather: Agil + Str + Staff
Cloth: Int + Sta + Spi
This is the build I ran in OB. It's mainly for PvP though.
Yeah, there is, it's called Spellsinger. This is a rough build of it so it might not be perfect.
I found it in about 30 seconds.
>Songweaving is a technique you can do with the songcraft buffs due to how they operate. They're instant-cast skills (they proc a global cooldown which is reduced by cast-time) that apply at 5 second buff every 5 seconds for their duration. With proper timing you can "wave" them into your healing rotation and keep them up the whole time while also healing as you normally would.
>The end result is a fully functional healer that also provides the following: 35% movespeed, ~35% damage reduction, 20% attack/cast speed, 20% damage, and complete immunity to stun and sleep.
>finally find guild I like
>read their guidelines
>at the end of guidelines it says to enter a password for the last question of the application
>fill out application
>completely forgot to enter the password phrase
I'll be going with pic related
STATE YOUR HOMELAND, REPRESENT WITH HONOR
You're trying to use both magic and healing. I'm assuming you're unaware of the 1.2 split and the new weapon swap mechanics?
Basically: healing had its magic power scaling removed and now scales off of healing power and spirit. There are no weapons with both healing power and magic attack. They added in a 2 second global cool down on weapon swapping as well. You also have to have your healing/magic power weapon on for the entire duration of the effect for the scaling to apply now.
Basically: you can't be a healer mage anymore thanks to the old Cultist.
I'm sure they will accept you. They are used to applications full of typos and grammar mistakes.
You'll be fine.
Going back to the question at hand: what makes the Defiler good is the defense survivability coupled with witchcraft's CC and self heals as well as occultism's ranged autoattack and god-tier hellspears. None of which has any cast time with the right passives so you're free to react to whatever anyone does.
The build you linked will lack the self-healing due to the aforementioned split, lack a lot of the CC, and has a cast-time as its primary damage.
Songcraft doesn't allow you to be very flexible; you'll be tankier but easier to lock down.
Defiler is about using cc to minimize damage and control the fight while continiously chipping down your opponents.
They're doing a livestream where they will clear up some stuff and hopefully announce some fixes to some major problems.
If they don't announce any fixes at all, then the game will probably die within 2-3 months.
its insanely fun compared to all other classes, every mob is fucking stunlocked and so are the players it's retarded and the holla holla get dolla parry to get rid of all cooldowns just makes it a physical slayakillaman
Undergeared people getting blown the fuck out by someone with good gear is normal in any open world pvp game, anon. I used to 1v6 on aion
until I got feared and my buffs stripped.
Link to stream? I've been wondering about the pay2win labor potions...
Why wait until open beta (final beta) is over before they do anything? Are they going to? Is the game going to die at the end of the week?
regardless, it's still a game about gear and numbers of people involved, not about skill
not saying it should be equalized or I rather play an arena game, but the gap is ridiculous
Going to suck a bit until 55 comes out but I'll deal with it. I like the class.
It's the trionworlds twitch channel.
Skirmish Tank relies on lasso and being a huge faggot with CC over survivability and also abusing the invincibility combined with imprison to fuck people over and creating a little fuckdome.
So i didn't play much of the beta, but from what I understand hybrids that have damage / utility classes in combination with Vitalism or Songcraft are bad now since those two classes got nerfed / Vitalism tied to club weapons?
Can you still make these combinations work or are they pointless now in the face of more viable options?
I don't mind gear and numbers gaps at all, skill is relative, some people will always say that X is braindead easy and still manage to fail at it.
I'm talking about gameplay, how common it is to get CC locked? I think the only thing I dislike about pvp is when I get to look at my char for 15 secs while doing nothing aside from being beaten up to death.
R8 my lack of shadowplay:
I would go:
Vitalism/Witchcraft/Occultism and be a mean support healer, but I only have about 4 IRL friends playing with me
there's a lot of CC, but there's diminishing returns, and the strongest CC gets broken by damage, that's why in the video I linked you don't see the guy being perma rooted, stunned or even toppled, little CC will make diminishing trigger super fast.
But as you can see, you won't survive much anyways if you're being 2-3 shotted by people like the one in the video, they're all level capped as well, he is just severely buffed and has gear at least worth $500
another mudhand build.
duel wield with caster weapon and cloth armor.
will battle focus + duel wield proficency be enough to deal with archers and melees?
is Primeval still OP or did they change anything to it? i havent played since the 2nd beta.
You pretty much need that -20% cool down on either defense or witchcraft since you really rely on a few skills. Hard to fit tele in it without sacrificing something else.
Auramancy for the anti-CC and utility, become a Darkrunner, very solid class
Defence for the survivability, become a Blighter, (sword and board) very good chain of stuns and burst
I'm looking at something along the lines of this:
Didn't have a chance to test in in beta, but seems like it has potential. Or it may turn out to be like an inferior defiler. Whatever.
I found them to be less useful than expected. The physical debuff is meh, and the damage is piss poor outside of the combo with hellspears. May still move a point around somewhere to get them.
Do you have ebough deeps to get me below 50% health?
Also, nth for Abolsiher Vs Abolisher duels aren't slow, they're cinematic.
>is it so hard to just tp somewhere nearby?
You can't teleport with tradepacks. That's why people want houses close to the sea and a crafting bench, so you don't have to travel forever while being slowed with the pack on your back.
Guys, I'm new. Can you please point me towards a good cookie cutter magetype build? Thanks.
>arrows deal 1 damage
>wow youre pretty unskilled
>tfw going to be bullied and abused by either Germans or Spaniards
Why is Euro so suffering ;_;
Don't play Shatigon then?
Dahuta is _officially_ French server, whereas Kyprosa is slightly more than your usual amount of nazis.
Honestly, I'll take nazis over French and Spainland anyday even if they sent their entire community on the same server like the other two.
Give me a build that lets me drop on 8 people and stay alive for 2 minutes. I'm not planning on actually killing anything so don't bother with that too much.
I'm thinking Shadowbane or Dreambreaker.
Yeh Shatigon will be awful.
Germans are usually much better than French / Spanish so just come Kyprosa.
There's a load of English speaking guilds so can't see it being a problem.
I'm going Kyprosa but everywhere I go it's just scaremongering and trying to lure people to other servers, I'm just worried.
I thank Nui all the time for that privilege I remember having to deal with them in Age of Wushu.
hey guys, I want to be some sort of battlemage, sorcery and battlerage, but what would be a good third skillset to compliment that?
I was thinking shadowplay so I can stealth, but I feel vitalism would be better so I can heal myself too.
cloth gear + duel wield with magic attack weapon.
r8 or h8 pls.
I cannot wait for what they have to say for themselves
READY DON'T KILL BOSS
>every fucking time
That's pretty impressive, anon, but ArcheAge has my attention right now.
many of these guilds are casuals
go on dahuta for best pvp but be prepared you will get raped even when you have "good" guild
there are some very well prepared and known guilds and if you are not in one of them, well, good luck
BONUS free pirate band of 300 greeks...free kills for everyone...
are you guys doing this on purpose
>What the *** is going on. This isn't a celebration. This is a *** arguement. We're pissed at you and you're either here to fix it or not. Stop playing shitty videos and get to the point. WE THE PLAYER BASE ARE UPSET. And this is NOT taking our minds of it.
I am extremely pissed
how DARE they act tall happy like nothing is wrong
Goddamn you all are a bunch of whiny cunts. They should leave it alone. If you don't want to support development and their company then don't pay for stuff. However, don't bitch when the developer gods smile upon the faithful. Heathens.
I don't know that anybody in the universe actually knows what proc is supposed to mean in it's raw sense. Basically it's any effect that has a finite chance of occurring. like 15% chance to bum your mom on contact or whatever.
>u dont like this so... we are totally talking to xl about it. Not actually going to change it though, we are talking it will totally change in the future we swear :^)
thanks for nothing, you fucking kikes.
thats not what they said. they said they were talking to korea to make the change, they didnt say they were actually changing it.
>thx for opening bags because we cant read the config file for droprate. I mean we can but its totally different some time because computer lie :^)
No, that isn't how computers work.
I wish we had cool Asian developers instead of these fat fucks
welp game dropped
Okay so, I know Auroria is locked on launch.
But how "locked" is it? As in removed locked, nothing-there-but-land locked, or restricted area locked?
Also, is the farm cart worth getting?
I want to get it after I get my nice boat since it
reminds of S&W, which gives me that comfy feel.
20 apex for patron.
You can buy apex with rl money and sell it for gold.
P2W confirmed, I am sad.
Any irlrichfags in here? I'll suck your dick for 5k gold
