Default War Online Offical Thread

This is the WAR Online Official Thread!

http://www.warhammeronline.com/english/home/index.php

Official website

Basic Summary: Warhammer Online is a MMORPG based on the Warhameer Universe. There are six races, greenskins (orks and goblins), chaos, dark elves, dwarves, empire, high elves. There are two loose factions, Order (dwarf, empire, high elf) and Destruction (Greenskins, Chaos and Dark Elf). There are four careers for each race, one for tanking, one for melee dps, one for ranged dps, and one for support. The max level is 40.

Basic Terms:
DPS = damage per second literally, most often means a damage dealing class
Tank = a class with a lot of armor that tries to get all of the attacks on him to save the other members of the group
Support = a class that heals and has buffs
Healer =see support

Careers

Greenskins:

Black Orc (tanking)
Orc Choppa (melee dps)
Goblin Shaman (support)
Goblin Squid herder (ranged dps)

Chaos

Chosen (tanking)
Marauder (melee dps)
Magus (ranged dps)
Zealot (support)

Dark Elf

Black Guard (tanking)
Witch Elf (melee dps)
Sorceress (ranged dps)
Disipline of Khaine (support)

Dwarf

Ironbreaker (tanking)
Hammerer (melee dps)
Engineer (ranged dps)
Runepriest (support)

Empire

Knight of the Blazing Sun (tanking)
Witch Hunter (melee dps)
Bright Wizard (ranged dps)
Warrior Priest (support)

High Elf

Swordmaster (tanking)
White Lion (melee dps)
Shadow Warrior (ranged dps)
Archmage (support)

Please check the official site for more info.

Now that we got that out of the way, it's time for the fun stuff!

We are going to make a guild (everyone who whises to participates) on the Destruction (greenskin, dark elf, and chaos) side. Please state your future screen name (optional for now) and your future career. If you can;t decide, that's okay, just say that you don't know what to be. MAKE SURE YOU TELL US WHAT YOU ARE INTERESTED IN!!! We can't help you if you simply put "undecided." Say something like "undecided, want to be a ranged dps," or something like that. Most likely one of the admins will be the guild leader. Make sure you check out that main site if you want more info. http://www.warhammeralliance.com is a good forum if you want to discuss this more.

If there's anything that I missed, please tell me!

Good Links

http://war.curse.com/videos/details/523/
notes: contains info on character advancement. Also announces that guilds , yes, GUILDS will have levels. Very nice.

Make sure you post good links to this. I will update this page frequently.

Let's get this off the ground!

Shouldn't this be in the Video Games & Software forum?
And how, exactly is this 'the official thread' was it approved by mods, or somehow endorsed by game designers?

I was just wondering what makes it more official than, say, THIS THREAD which has been around for a few months now.

Or THIS ONE Started by Jezlad half a year ago?

Well considering that has been dead for nearly 2 months now and Earcar seems to have a lot of info in his. I don't see a problem in letting this one go ahead. After all its only a name and this is onyl the 2nd time it has been brought up.

I'll play.

I'll go with Ranged or Melee dps, any race. Whatever the rest go with really.

If you want to be ranged dps and/or melee dps, I would suggest dwarf engineer. They are best at mid range, not far, far away, and they have a lot of neat tricks at melee ranged, such as grenades! Dwarves also get mounts that are machines that run on beer. It gives a whole new level of drunk driving.

WAAAGH!

Wtf is dps btw?

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Sorry, dps = damage per second literally. DPS usually means a damage dealing class (rogue or mage in World of Warcraft) It is a role that has no pressure, and is typaclly considered the most fun role (although some may beg to differ).

WAAAGH!
