I used to play often but for some reason I stopped. This was before any of the expansions came out. I left around level 18 and 1/2 and was a Warrior/Ranger, whos pet somehow disappeared and I didn't ever figure out how to get it back.
Anyway, I was thinking about getting one or a few of the expansions soon so that I can hopefully getback into the game. If anyone has any of them and would like to sort of sum them up or give your personal opinion of them that would be great.
I haven't played a lot of Factions, but from what I've heard it's good, but not great. It's heavily shifted towards the PvP side of things, introducing Alliance battles vying for physical game territory. The outcomes of the AvA battles between the two factions (the Luxons and the Kurzicks) effect the game map. Pretty cool.
Nightfall, so far, is really damn good. The advent of the hero system is certainly a perk. They're essentially henchmen that you can equip their items and skills and change their attributes and such. You can order them around as well. Very, very good for soloing. On the otherside of things, the campaign is incredibly long, weighing in at 20 new missions over a game map that rivals the size of Prophecies. Almost. As well, the it's got an insane level of difficulty at times. Certainly welcomed.
They've also been doing a lot of tweaking of stuff and prettying up the interface and just changing stuff for the better. It's a completely different game than I used to play a year ago.
If anyone's interested, I started a guild with this guy a couple days ago. We're looking for a bunch of people and plan on doing a lot of GvG and eventually take on the Hall of Heroes.
Catch me in game if you're interested in the guild or just want to go kill shit.
Antioch Kinstar (R/Mo20) beat the Prophecies campaign and has 70% of the map explored, so if you need a run anywhere, I can do it. Hell, I've even ran Drok's successfully a couple times.
Somerset Lopez (D/E 10) is my current Nightfall character. He just runs up and does area damage. Excellent at crowd control, terrible at bosses.
Ya, I think I might have to pick up Nightfall. It sounds good and even the other expansions sound good too. I will check them out and if I get them it will probably be tomorrow since I gotta go out anyway. I am up for anytime, even tomorrow night if you guys want.
I think my old character's name was Master Mercenary, but if I got Nightfall I would probably make a new character anyway. I will keep in touch with you two in this topic and let you know if I am getting Nightfall and/or the other expansions. I think I am though.
Alright, well I got Nightfall today so i have the original and Nightfall. I started a new dervish character named Giran Nola and he is level 3 in the Nightfall campaign. I decided to take a little break but anyway, I hope we all can play together. I won't be playing a ton though, just when I can.
