FPS testing in Guild Wars 2 is problematic at the best of times. Anybody jumping into WvW can attest to this. We needed to pick a way that would drastically reduce the variables involved while still ensuring that we were being realistic in our test. Logging tests on each of the available systems, we chose to idle in a spot overlooking the Mystic Forge. This was a good compromise as it has a level footfall of users that tend to spend a good length of time in front of the forge. It also demands that any system render a number of effects spouting out of the Forge. In essence, the mystic toilet is about as consistent as any populated environment in Tyria is going to be. … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2 Is Slow…. Is It Time for a New PC?

Yesterday I engaged in some serious nonsense, which is not super surprising if you follow this blog in the least. For whatever reason I got it stuck in my head that I would really like to have the Wyvern Blade “Indigo”, which is an alternate line of the poison weapon I have been using off and on for some time. This unfortunately would involve starting over from scratch and building a new base weapon and upgrading it completely. I had no clue what exactly that mean’t part wise so I created a little hit list adding up everything. … [Read more...] about Indigo Blade Get
Amarr cruisers should do well with Heavy Pulse lasers and Scorch M for long range and Conflagration M for the battleship targets, but may suffer from a lack of mid slots for webs on some ships and lack of drones on others. Missiles may be more useful than turrets due to the difficulty turrets will have tracking the Rogue Drones and ability to choose damage type, but any weapon with small capacity and long reload time can actually be a serious disadvantage due to the timer limit. Packs of rogue drones can be kited to keep them out of their optimal range while you pick them off one at a time, but if you encounter a Drifter battleship you’ll need to get into close orbit of it as quickly as possible to evade its damage. … [Read more...] about EVE Evolved: Getting ready for EVE Online’s Abyssal revolution
That’s not saying everything about combat is disappointing. While the skill-up process itself is grindy, the skill trees themselves are incredibly flexible. Want to play a Paladin-type? Then simply level up in Blades, Shields, Heavy Armour and a touch of life magic. How about a rogue? Go for light armour and sink points into subterfuge. Completing mobs and killing quests build up a skill point pool, which are then gradually allocated to skills the more they’re used. It’s a neat system that molds itself around how you play, but requires time and effort to sink into it. Hence the grind. … [Read more...] about Does Classic Charm Make for an MMO Worth Playing?
