Where have I been? Everywhere O_o

N’kari the Keeper of Secrets My latest guide.¬† Now I know I havn’t been around at all, so if you see this … Kudos to you. ohh yea I switched to destro shammy ūüėÄ

Cheers!

On the grind.

Howdy fellas!

This poor poor lonely blog hasn’t been updated so I’ll take a minute, and log out.¬† Dark Crag is a bit funny, Destruction has got us outnumbered/ranked by more then a few and continues to dominate all of T3 and T4 (some of T4 is locked into order control for lack of players yet to reach cap). The good part about this is that when we do have a few good men online we run some smash a grab runs to take over a zone and usually start to see some destruction pour in once we have already took out a the last lord of the zone and run some defense until 50+ destro show up ranging from R20-40. Needless to say holding a keep and even getting back to a keep after death proves to be a very difficult challenge ūüėÄ .¬† I have to say I am really impressed with the RvR lakes it is just to bad that Order/destro tend to neglect this area due to better means of leveling/renown via scenarios and PvE questing, it is really a shame!

At the moment I have leveled completely from Scenarios and RvR quests and Currently a rank 31/31Engineer following the path of Grenadier.¬† Now I know if any of you have been following WHA Engi forums… you have already switched mains after cursing your laughable dmg,hp, and armor factor, believe me I’m in the same boat. Sure, I can focus mainly on throwing out damage and rank near the top rivaling with the rest of the DPS classes except for the ranged Bright wizards (apposed to the melee suicidal not-worth-healing BWs) but that means I am focused 100% on killing and I don’t spend much if any time worrying about objectives or using our CC moves.¬† I’m trying to find that niche of play that Engineers excel in because it certainly isn’t high consistent damage or burst damage. Right now, I put our healers as my top priority, I’ll drop my turret near our healers and let them know if they want protection to stand right on top of it.¬† This does a few great things for the team¬† first it hides the turret from being obliterated, and second If any witch elfs pop or a melee zerg rushes I will not hesitate to use Self Destruct¬† (–AoE¬† 5 second knockdown–) followed by a strafing run or frag grenade, followed again by a concussion grenade or land mine (this depends on the amount of players attacking and my range from the turret) Running this combo will effectively stop any onslaught and allow healers to focus on doing their job.

Moving on, I have heard of quite a few people having choppy/lag issues with Nvidia cards and AMD processors and I currently run both. I upgraded to a Nvidia 9600 AMP! edition and still have a bit of bottleneck with my AMD Athalon 2.0 GHz dual core and unfortunately it is restricted from Overclocking.¬† I might wipe Vista from this computer and run XP but I’m unsure that will provide at least 30% boost in performance that I’m looking for. The other option is to pick up a new motherboard and processor overclocked to 3.0 GHz¬† for around 200 USD for about a 50% boost in processor performance. I have some great Ideas for Videos but I won’t film until I’m running full effects and lag free ><.

Cheers!

Dark Crag,The Hardcore Open RvR Server.

Heya fellas and gals here is an announment from the Hardcore Order WAR guild Negative Burn.

Dark Crag

After reviewing the list of servers that will be made available for Collector’s Edition Headstart tomorrow morning, we have chosen our server. Negative Burn will be rolling on the US, Open RvR Server, known as Dark Crag.

Prepare yourselves for War.

Roll Dark Crag destruction, bring your A game and give us some kind of challenge.

Open Beta is here.

Had I known this morning the beta servers where up I wouldn’t have spent the morning trying to shield the sun-rays and¬†cursing my duty to show up for work. I got a small teaser and was able to queue up for a single scenario. I have some plans for open beta, I have goals to get stuff done and brutalize! Ten Things for Beta.

 

  1. Rediscover my love of healing.— I played a cleric back in the days of DAoC on¬†Guinevere RvR server and then again later when I was¬†PvPin on¬†Mordred. I’m going to rank up an Archmage first and foremost. I want to reach Tier 2 with that character and try to decide if I want a Runepriest or Archmage as my healing alt.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†
  2. Level yet another Engineer that will be wiped ūüė¶ and go grenadier spec this time around. — I feel like rifleman spec will be one of the most popular specs to play and most likely what I’m aiming(OMG a pun)¬†to be. I have always been one to take very original spec lines to properly fit my play style. I can only hope that all the paths will be viable to play in the endgame.
  3. Along with #2 I’ll have to play around with the turrets again. —¬†I¬†am very¬†optamistic¬†over the patch notes (even though preview weekend was a good experience)
  4. Dive¬†deeper into class synergies¬†and group make-ups.¬† — There are alot of morale abilities that when used around the same time paired with a specific class can and will manipulate the battle lines with great effectiveness.
  5. Further¬†study RvR zones. — There are tons of choke points, ledges, and secret back roads¬†for good play.
  6. Punt Goblins off our Keep. — hours of enjoyment ūüôā
  7. Find a way to play smoothly with full spell effects. — Easier said then done.
  8. Solo a Hero mob. — Hey, I soloed a few¬†champions… how hard could it be?
  9. Record hours worth of footage. — I know I am selfish but I won’t be making any movies for the first few days I’m out there¬†gettin’ blood and grudge all over me. (haha, ohh the jokes that will come from that mechanic… haha)
  10. WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN —¬†Imagine Tom Vs. Jerry

Cheers!

 

P.S. If ya have something you would like to see In the next movie, throw it into the comments and I just might go out of my way for ya.

It may be a while.

Howdy yall,

I got to say that I am not satisfied with my specific Engineer footage to deliver a quality video.¬† Although, I just picked up some new editing software and just might be able to pull a gem out of these buttocks. One of the reasons excuses I have is … I lagged, a decent amount too while taking on keep lords and other mobs in small areas. It was pretty bad in Closed Beta( I believe the debugger running¬† was reason for most of it) but I have room to improve(down with itunes, firefox,and seeding)¬† and here is something I can give you

Look at that beard!

Look at that beard!
