I am still enjoying this huge world in Guild Wars 2. I have 33% of the world map completed. Look and you can see Olfr’s armor steadly getting better looking as I adventure around and level him up. I’ve gone with silver armor with gold trim since the beginning to try to keep it realistic looking. It kind of looks like the armor for the King’s Guard from Game of Thrones. Hail Joffrey!
I have to say the underwater areas in Guild Wars 2 are pretty awesome. So what if my chainmail clad viking would sink like a rock to the bottom if this was realistic at all. The graphics look great underwater with alternating sun rays and bubbles and sharks and frogmen swimming around. I realized one thing that I am really enjoying over Everquest 2. It’s being able to move mobs around during combat. Not just training them backwards either. In GW2 I can kick mobs back, I can rifle butt them back, I can do a fearsome warrior shout that sends them running, or my favorite I can do a huge stomp that sends them all flying. Basically the combat is a blast. Olfr is level 36 now and I’ve been playing with a couple co-workers. One is a Norn Ranger aka Beastlord which I approve. The other is a human Necromancer. Olfr Smash !!
Olfr has recovered his ancestral horn from his personal story mission. I was then given the choice of handing it over to the bear people that made it because they suspected it was corrupted or take it back home. I decided to keep it. Things happen, I wouldn’t want to spoil anything here. I’ve uncovered 13% of the world map. I’ve unlocked some new skills, like a spinning charge attack and a shout that makes enemies run for a short time. I haven’t been burning through the game as fast as I thought I would. There really is a ton of content suprisingly. There is still time to join in on the fun. Join me in Guild Was 2 on the Blackgate server!
I’ve reached level 19 with Olfr the Norn Warrior. I am very impressed with the game so far. I love the world map. It is a lot of fun to just explore. I love how nearby mini events will be circled on the map and will move if the event is moving. It could be a huge boss like monster that all players can gang up on or it might be an escort mission of a large caravan of goods between towns. Most of the quests have mutiple ways that you can complete them. It could be direct slaying of bad guys + revive fallen NPCs + remove traps. You could stick to 1 or do all 3. Adds nice variety to normal MMO kill 10 rats quests. I’ve been using rifle and bow with my warrior which has been fun. If Nindakin would just get the game and join me I could pull out the 2 handed hammer more often!
Decided to try out another MMO. After much research I went with Guild Wars 2. No monthly subscription is nice. Innovative new stuff. Nice graphics, Casual gameplay. I’m enjoying it so far. My character’s name is Olfr and of course he is a Norn (Viking) Warrior. I’ve tried to convince Nin to join me but he says he has too many other games to play. It’s too bad because I feel this game is perfect for 2 people to run around in and enjoy. I’ll post more details next time!
Beodin having a blinking contest with the Overlord of Freeport. The latest game update for EQ2 came out this week, Skyshrine and the level cap was raised to 92. But in more important news an old friend from EQ1 days has joined us, Dwarftossr! I’ve known D.T. since my first guild ever Legion of Light and then Noble Rage. A lot of good times. I hope he sticks around with us.
Viking Fellowship reached the milestone of Level 30 guild tonight. We now have a guild hall and five amenities. The five amenities we purchased were the guild bind statue, druid, wizard, travel globe and broker. At guild level 35 we earn two more spots. Now it’s time to get decorating!
MMO Viking’s guild “Viking Fellowship” hit level 24 tonight. Pretty good for only being 2 weeks old and having only 3 active guild members. We have been knocking out writs and conducting 3-man raids of Veeshan’s Peak to earn status. Level 30 guild is the current goal so we can buy ourselves a guild hall with 5 ammenities. It’s good having another goal to strive for in the game to keep me interested. Reddranth says he will join the three of us after we get the guild hall up and running. He can’t go back to being hardcore and needs his easy guild hall transportation options. I must admit I miss them, but it won’t be too much longer…
MMO Viking and his group of friends weren’t getting much out of our old guilds. Mostly due to small amount of guild members online and the ones that were online weren’t able to really help us in a group. So we decided to form our own small guild with just us. Viking Fellowship the Everquest 2 guild on Butcherblock server is where you can find us and all are welcome to join. We formed on 14 February 2012 and tonight 17 February 2012 we are a Level 14 guild. Level 30 is required for a guildhall and that is the goal at the moment. I am enjoying having something else to work towards considering Beodin the Beastlord is max level and max alternate advancement points.
Tonight I finished Beodin’s Epic quest for his Fabled Claws of Khati Sha. Thanks go out to Nindakin, Reddranth, Neecrol, Colossus and Gaealiege for the help along the way. The quest was very long and sometimes difficult. I was worried about the final solo fight against the Ogre Viax because I heard it was difficult. I learned all I could about it before the encounter and even re-did some AA line with Colossus’s suggestions for the fight. The fight was long but in the end I never fell below 75% health using spiritual stance and my Stag warder spamming the two heals I had. I’m sure my max aa’s helped too. Mythicals are next!
