Ive been wondering what Red 5 were working on since they were founded but Ive yet to get around to playing this,is it worth checking out in its current state?
Where is this game headed? I have done a bit more research on it, and it still seems so.... disorganized. Not really sure what Red 5 is doing during this development campaign.
I have been playing the beta for the last few days, and while I LOVE the shooting spree I dont feel and general direction story wise. Its just run around pop a few ARES kill some Chosen Pats or ships, maybe take out a Melding Tornado and THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP. while the kill fest is fun in thumping they need to make a path of somsort to endgame. like i said I LOVE the killing fields but there is no reason for them outside of getting XP and materials.
As to the materials the crafting is a bit confusing (at lest to me) its seems like thy tried to make all basic professions Armor, weapons, stims packs, available to the player as a WHOLE. this in a way will be a big hinderance to the game economy as why buy stuff from others when I can make it my self.
Upgrading the Battleframes is not too difficult so far along with the adding of abilities.
All in all so far I like this game its finally what I have been waiting for a FPS MMO, but for those entering the world if you are not familiar with the mechanics of the game its self they will not play long without some better tutorials
I feel like the server I'm stuck on is full of people who don't know what to do. There really isn't anyone trying to get their BWA keys. And the one time my group actually succeeds at the diamondhead quest it bugs and doesn't give us our item.
this game could REALLY use a crafting guide as there is soo much involved in the crafting that people WILL get lost and frustrated unless you have been at it for a long time already. This is my only relly game breaker for me I don't like how the crafting setup is

second, the idea that you can learn all the recipes by yourself only SEEMS viable. T4 recipes take 5 days to research... Each. So, unless you drop a thousand dollars in red beans to speed up research, you are going to have to specialize and use the market.
third, if you are having issues. Just ask us! the community for this game will go out of its way to help you.

so i have been messing around with the crafting station and yea it is rather easy to understand now. I will continue checking out this thread for that BWA stuff, i have heard mention of it ingame and do need to know more. gotta say i do miss my TOR companion crafting lol.
Aranha kennels! We find a new species of docile and friendly aranhas that we can groom and take care of! We'll have aranha beauty pageants to see who's the cutest little bugger around! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! Although, the pageants would technically be considered PvP lol.
You know what this needs? The melee weapon system from Global Agenda and the weapon sub types of Defiance for secondary weapons.

I've tried searching the thread for this BWA and Baneclaw stuff but could somebody please explain what these are and how I get to them? Is there a guide out there because I'm not having any luck finding one with google.
But I can give you a quick over view of what to do.
To get into BWA:
First, you need to build the arc port keys to the new zones. To do this, you need a few things.
Step 1: Go to the area north west of Transhub to pick up the package believed to be from dr Batsheba (it isn't but that's another story)
Step 2: Turn in 50 resonators at Copa, South harbor, and thump dump.
Step 3: Use the vouchers from step 2 to purchase the arc port components from the quartermasters at copa, south harbor, and thumpdump.
Step 4: Craft your 3 keys at the printer.
Step 5: collect thousands of melded crystite within the new zones from missions and thumping.
Step 6: get a 10 man or more raid group to go do the events hidden behind the melding in the new zones. This will cost a lot of melded crystite to push back the melding a few times and summon the event many times. Each time you complete the event it is a chance to drop. But when it does drop, the entire raid group gets the part.
Step 7: Take the parts from the three melding pocket events and craft your BWA key.
Step 8: Get 4 other people and queue for BWA.
Join banebusters. They will guide you.
(Basically, you need a summon key which is called a melding anomaly neutralizer (MAN) which is like 200,000 CY worth of materials. Then, at the melding repulsors, you can push back the melding, run up to the cloud, turn on your MAN and baneclaw will summon. You need about 25 people)
