Well I got a little time in this weekend. Lvl 12 Norn Mesmer for a character. I am on Stormbluff Isles for world map location. I may be moving it today which I think is the last day of free move. Mobs are a bit harder to kill like during the beta, i.e. ones that are 2 lvls or higher above you can kill you if you don't do the drop/roll/evade moves. And it appears you only have enough energy to do 2 of them at my current level. Not sure if that increases as you level higher. Buddy saw a lvl 80 next to him yesterday....

Grabbed a Great Sword (shoulda kept one that dropped...vs buying) and does magic attacks?! But I picked up 4 skills on it in a short period of time which was interesting. Started on some of the crafting stuff and found that you can access your bank from them as well as from Lions Arch area.

Overall pretty cool but a much larger learning curve IMHO.

Elvish characters? They don't look Elvish to me. Same kind of skill/character setup as the rest. I didn't do much on the Asuran side (I checked out both). Just can't wait till it is officially out next month. I have to probably go read up on character building to understand the choices I make before jumping into it so I have a better idea what to choose depending on class/play type I will be going for initially.

95 yrs old and was still doing voice-overs. He was a great actor. He will be missed, especially by Spongebob and Patrick!

I would say PS3 since if you have Amazon Prime you can watch (free and rent) movies, tv shows, etc...

Why not in middle of battle? You have different mobs showing up that you want to use other skill combos for vs current mobs? But I have to look into the skills and associated sub-skill/rune stuff I guess to get a better grip on doing more damage while taking less damage on my monk. Still can get quite busy lol. haven't played since early last week, maybe tuesday I go back into it.

Well the Monk class is interesting with his aoe skill(s) and getting the npc char in the skeleton king dungeon was good to have because he is tough (for the lvl you are at). Skill switching is something I haven't really done much of because I don't know if it is hotkey-able or not (switch on the fly vs bringing up menu and selecting in middle of battle seems to be a bit dangerous depending the scenario). I guess I'll need to go read up some more on this since the manual is a joke in that respect.

A bit underwhelmed that they are using the same basic interface for movement (no free-form camera like other games). Vomiting zombies lol, fat ones drop worms or whatever when they die so gotta keep distance.

I am playing a wizard atm to see how well she does. Died in dungeon due to 3 fat ones + zombies + bats on my ass....it's ok but a) don't like that it has to be online to play single player (i.e. internet connection) but understand why (to a point) and b) disappointed they kept the same style interface, i.e. didn't make it more modern with free-form camera movement to see around yourself, unless I am missing something. Same as D/D2 and after 12 years you would think they'd update the interface at the very least....but it is dark, brooding and still like the music.

Played for about an hour so far.

Well I tried a Charr briefly as well as a Norn and Human. It was interesting, being able to swim and jump. I guess depending how much you worked on leveling very early in this beta depends how you survived some of the tough enemies to solo. I got killed so much I was fighting in my underwear (game char lol) due to armor being decimated from the enemies pummeling me (the burning orphanage) but I did finish it off solo. I didn't team with anyone, think one person rezzed me/healed me out in the grasslands.  Multiple storylines depending on what character you played, etc... Interesting that we get pistols and rifles in it now too. It seemed to be missing a lot of stuff still as I thought this was kind of a limited beta in that respect, not all races could be played for instance. I didn't look into any of the crafting stuff because it appears I'll have to be doing a fair bit of reading to determine which ones to work on depending on the class I play.

So who has pre-ordered this one? An oldie but goodie from Blizzard. I did and am going to see if I can get into the beta which I believe is happening this weekend. GW2 I heard was next weekend for another beta.

So is anyone pre-ordering and going to get to go into game 3 days ahead of non pre-orders? I did yesterday and am on fence if I want to blow $150 on the collectors edition for the art prints, figurine, etc....

Heard this thing looks amazing and that they have double the number of servers compared to the original. Also, original took 2Gb disk space, new one will require 25Gb of disk space!

I turned off an option and it didn't display any different so I am stumped for the time being. There is a new version out (up to 1.01 now) that I am debating on updating to which would be a complete re-install from scratch. I will ponder that later. If anyone runs e107 please feel free to shoot me a private message with suggestions.

See if you can get into the site now. I changed a setting in preferences.

[edit] Hmm, I have Restrict Website to members only turned off (was before I made change but that didn't make a difference. I may have to go read the docs to see what setting turns off the registration stuff.  I am not sure where it is under e107 to make the site more open other than the stuff I have set to Off which should allow some viewing of the site. Will try to check into it later as time permits.

It will auto-renew but I need to update my credit card info before that so it is up to date. I have to see how my site is set up sans logging in to see what I can see. I like to keep it semi-secure after that damn virus last year....I had to reload the site with newest version of e107 (well not absolute latest, 1 rev behind = fine w/me) due to re-uploading site and damn thing was hacking it again. Was a fiasco and had to go through Google to check it out eventually to check for trojans and such.

I will probably keep it. Renewal of my site at the hosting service isn't till later this year (up to $10x annually but tons of space/bandwidth hence considering dumping things). I will have to look into domain pointing but would have to re-register elsewhere as host is doing that for me atm.
