|Are we there yet?|
Yesterday, at least in my Twitter feed, everyone went to Nexus.
Although the game's not open to the 'public' yet, those of us with Early Access to Wildstar were allowed in for a Head Start. As there's pretty much nothing going on in Warcraft (more on that later) of real note it seemed like a good idea to jump in and get myself started on my Granok Exile. I'm going to tank eventually, but for now I'll take any piece of gear I can find. Fortunately for me the game I played in Beta is considerably different from the one I saw last night, and that includes gear drops from mobs. I'm not *quite* sure why I picked the Explorer path (I *hate* jumping) but no matter, it is all good in these early days. The game itself seems considerably more polished than it was in many regards, and I'm now quite keen to roll a Dominion character to see the other starting area experience for balance. Having the same two areas for every faction clearly saves a lot of time and effort on content creation, but I suspect if I roll more than a few characters it is going to get wearing quite fast.
|I need a stat guide, STAT!|
Last night I made it to level 5 before I logged off. I should apologise to anyone who was in the Circle that @decodingdragons made and I joined, because there was perilously little chatting going on and an awful lot of learning on my part. New systems are still new, even though I've played this part once already, and I am conscious of may things not being natural as yet. I've not even looked at my free perks or the 44 Boom Boxes I have in my Inventory as yet, it's all about learning how to play and not feel like an utter idiot. That is going to take some time, because if there's one thing I'm very particular about, it is learning how to do things well. Don't say I didn't warn you in advance.
As a result of Wildstar's arrival, I'll be doing a weekly update of my progress in *this* game every Sunday. If it ends up as being *more* than once a week, then Warcraft has something to worry about... ^^
