Warhammer Online

geeky
You know the drill... who's playing, what server, etc. This is my mid-semester present to myself. Probably foolish but evilhat got me wound up about it.

Is that a good "good luck" or a bad "good luck"?

Given the subject, probably a little bit of both!

Consider it a wary good luck.

Of course! I plan to roll a gobboe. When we get my video card enough power.

But... how did the exam go?

It sucked balls. I was rushed and had to set up my own cat for the practical part and basically got screwed by not having gotten the exam review that everyone else got before the exam. I did the formula for deltas of cardiac output backwards and forgot the gastrosplenic vein entirely. I am hoping for some partial credit. On the 50 question lecture exam, I marked off 10 that I wasn't sure about. TEN. Fuck.

By which I mean I probably got a low B. UNACCEPTABLE.

That's rough; I'm so sorry. :(

I wouldn't be so worked up about it except that A&P is the one class that most nursing schools really really care about your GPA the most on.

Ehn, I'll just have to do better on the other exams. And there's extra credit. I don't feel like this entirely torpedoed my hopes for an A, it's just annoying to do worse than I thought I would.

I'm installing the game this weekend. Friends (theantichrist and catpawn are two) are on Chaos Wastes playing Destruction in the guild Collateral Damage.

It looks like I have to get a new power supply before I can play... so I probably won't get it working for another week since we're going on a trip. Meh. I definitely want to play destruction side though!

Oh yeah... what kind of server is that? Core?

It's open RP/PVP. Not sure how I feel about that one yet.

Dammit. Yet another online game I want to play but don't have time for and my system won't run it anyway. ;P

It turns out mine won't either, at least so far. But I should note that I have heard both good and bad stuff about it so I'll just tell you the bad stuff and you won't miss it. :)

Sea of Claws - Destruction (may not stay here, the guild is rerolling Order >.<)

Sylvania - Order

Char name is Leliel for at least one char on each.

I noticed for the brief time the game was working they had a little recruitment thing for Sea of Claws on the Order side! But I want to play a gobboe.

Scott, Jody, myself, Matt, Ash and Leigh are playing Order on the Sylvania server. We're in a random but pretty decent guild called Nuln Highway Boys that actively promotes having friends of friends join up. So let us know :)

I did not know! I don't know if we're going to be the kind of players that will be of particular use to any guild. Doing school means that I have limited time spans to play so I will not be "leveling up" at any kind of rate. We got Jack a copy too and his video card actually works so I guarantee he will be into joining you!

Of course, the whole reason I got the game was to play a goblin. That doesn't mean I can't try other things though.

Also, the old Blackspire folks are on Phoenix Throne, Destruction. Jody and I popped over there to moonlight some badguys with the folks. Matt and Sal have dropped by as well. Our mains are still on Sylvania Order, but if you want destro and friends, you can look for the guild 'Blackspire' on Phoenix Throne to find the old DAoC gang.

Excellent, thanks for the tip!

Watch out, many servers are having trouble getting people to play Order, since Destruction is 'cooler'.

On WoW, no one would care, but since a lot of advancement in WAR is tied to the RvR, that means that Destruction sometimes has to sit around for a while waiting for enough Order players to show up.

May your server not suffer from this!

(Not playing WAR myself, wrong OS and don't really want to pay for two MMO subscriptions just now.)

Bummer. I like being the underdog! Thanks for the heads up.

Sadly, neither Trace or I are playing this for now. Not a lot of downtime, and what little we have wouldn't be sufficient for MMORPG grinding. ;)

From a 'light play' sort of perspective, if you're not overly concerned with getting an alt to 40, I've actually had a blast just leveling little alts to about 5 or 6 (takes about 30-40 minutes) and then playing in Scenarios through 12.

I've not really felt like 'grinding' until I hit the 20s - but things definitely slow down at that point. Although, most of the time I'm trying to KEEP from leveling because I don't want to level out of the scenario tier. :)

I'm guessing for me I'd be able to play about 3 hours a week, unless I get really really sucked in, but the plan would be to do this on a BREAK from homework, not make homework a break from playing. :)

I truly don't have the time to justify the purchase or monthly expense. But... you know how I feel about squigs. It just overcame all reason. The opening movie was worth the price of admission!

Nope, not playing. And it seems that someone has somehow managed to find a bit of a cheat in the endgame already. Didn't take long.

I want to play really badly, but my video card sucks @$$. :((((((

Yeah... Mine too. We thought we had a solution but I still can't play. :(
