A few days ago, I tried to take a player down with my fire mage. Something bugged… Or maybe taking him down from the air didn’t work on Dalaran WoW?
There’s only one way to find out, and that’s by trying again, so when my Death Knight, Kerachel, spotted a rogue in the air, hovering on his bird, I took out Taldore on a mission.
Now, Taldore is a frost mage, so I couldn’t use the same spells I could with my fire mage. It took me several trips up in the air, dropping from my bird, casting spells, until I finally got the rogue.Continue reading
I haven’t yet tried all classes in Neverwinter, but so far there are two that stands out for me as my favorites, and they are the Oathbound Paladin and the Control Wizard.
It’s hard to kill the paladin in arenas, but the CW is more fragile. Especially when you’re new to the game and haven’t learned the tricks, yet. (Hehe, I learned some nice ones about discovering stealth Trickster Rogues last night).Continue reading
The Oathbound Paladin is a relatively new class in Neverwinter. And therefore is it OP at the moment.
My paladin, Galit, is pure PvP-breed, but my feats and powers might be a mixture, since I’m new to this. I’m simply sharing my build here to help a friend, who’s completely new to MMORPGs and who wants to create a paladin.Continue reading
Have you ever been on a battleground where people were raging?
Oh, you have?
Well, yesterday was our alliance day, so we were on Sporeggar. I had gotten new PvP gear for my relatively new level 90 shaman, Nezepher, so I wanted to test it in a few battlegrounds.
When I entered this one, Arathi Basin, people were already gathered in the court yard in front of the little house we arrive in. I stepped outside, and saw somebody ask for health stones. Another one said something in a Dutch. The little I understood of it was “open your eyes”. So I looked around and saw the soulwell, oddly placed to the left of the entrance to the house.
I went over there, grabbed a healthstone and then Vìvi from Defias Brotherhood said:
She was born in the same little night elf village like her sisters, of course. But she quickly moved to the big city, Darnassus.
While her big sisters Laylael and Nimrasil would remember exploring their childhood area, listening to birds and deers and the beautiful melodies that hung in the air, she didn’t really recall anything from her early years.
When she was ten, things changed though.
She was told to start working, and she took up two professions that suited her well: Tailoring and Jewelcrafting.
She also discovered an awesome place to go, and that’s where she spend the rest of her childhood, all her youth and a huge part of her adult life: the battleground!
Triest grew up on the different battlegrounds and learned to kill and to heal.
When she was 48, still young for a night elf, she moved from Blade’s Edge (EU) to Sporeggar, a real realm where they didn’t only fight on battlegrounds, but where ever there was a spot shared between horde and alliance. She didn’t get into any fights, though.
She grew up to 72, but then she was left alone for two years. Nobody cared about her. Her sisters were sleeping, too. Laylael had followed her to Sporeggar, but Nimrasil and her half-sister Nezepher had stayed on Blade’s Edge. Triest was sad.
Then one day, things started to happen again. She was taken away, once more. She and her sister Laylael moved to a French country called Culte de la Rive Noire, and there she started to live a bit again. Instead of healing, she tried being more aggressive and showed her dark, shady, side. Only for a short while, though, from she was about 73 to 74.
Then things happened in a blur… She reached 85, but where? On the French realm? Or back on Sporeggar with her sisters? She couldn’t remember. And then she was left alone again and feeling sad once more.
Somebody moved her, again. She was so tired of moving. For three days she didn’t even have a name. Then she got it back. She was again Triest, but where? On Defias Brotherhood? And oh… What is that? What’s going on?
A short pain… then feeling calm again.
She looked in the mirror. She was the same inside, but feeling different somehow. She didn’t really know what it was. Sure, same hair color. Same hair style. Same gentle face… but where were her markings? And her eyes? They were no longer white and blinded by the light. They had turned green as emerald. Her ears were a bit shorter. She was thinner – must have been all that starving.
She stepped outside, but this wasn’t Stormwind. Nor Darnassus, the only city she really remembered. This was a strange city. She cried a bit. Her sister Laylael wasn’t with her. Nimrasil had left a long time ago, but she’d always been close to Laylael. Should the two of them never see each other again?
Triest swallowed. She wouldn’t allow herself to cry for long. She took a deep breath, and that’s when she saw her… New friends. New allies… but this time in a strange place. This was Silvermoon, her new home town, she was told.
She opened up her arms and hugged her new friends. Ready for new adventures. Maybe she would finally be happy and no longer alone? She hoped so.
When we created “Choppa Chicks” back in 2009, the hottest vehicle in the world was the “choppa”. Back then you had to buy a mount for each character, and only two of my alliance characters had one – none of my horde chars. That’s why the guild motto was to make gold to buy a choppa.
Now, luckily, the guild is no longer just populated by “chicks”, and the chopper is almost an archaic mount. So I thought it was time to change the guild name.
I got some suggestions, and I want more, and I want to hear your opinion about the different names. I would love the name to show both that we’re a horde guild, that we do a little bit of role playing, and that we do PvP.
We have had or still have guilds that are called “Scream Aim Fire”, “The Elephant’s Nest” (on Age of Conan), “The Redeemers”… I would have loved “Requiem”, but that name is taken on Defias Brotherhood.
So far I’ve gotten the following suggestions:
Ruled by Magic
Magick by Design
Tormented by Magic
The Old Hag and the Harem
The Chronicles of Nah
That’s the ones I remember reading or hearing.
