Having played humans for while - I'm wildly disappointed..by their storyline.
Does other races have this "problem"? I havent really had change to do other races past intro so i cant really comment on those.
Tho my friend took me into some charr story stuff and it seemed way more intresting on both story and mechanics (stealthy "dont get near aggro range" and some war conspiracy or something..seemed much more intresting than naive goodie-good human with snore politics)
This is first time in ANY mmo I've played when I literally want to punch my own character for being so stupidly naive.
I dont get it. Cant I have any choice here? Cant it be so black and white?
It seems way too black and white with hardly any depth and choppy stories.
Heres examples (dont have to read if you have done some of the human storyline).
My first char was human necromancer. I picked ferocity, thinking shes evil or brutish.
Raised on streets, missing sister and so forth..would make her tough girl who is uses ferocity, right?
-In the intro shes already going "I must save villagers, I must help those who cant help themselves ^__^" - first "ugh" at start of the game.
-Later on my character has to go snitching to guard general about my friend being "in wrong hoods". So my in the streets raised person who has 2 best friends in thief-guild goes to guards saying that shes worried that they get in trouble ó_o
-After saving my friends I had to make choice, either save "lots of innocent people!" or "my best friend, who was annoyingly naive and appeared 3 times total for few sentences". What kinda choice is that?! Didnt really feel attached to my friend so might as well save "hundreds of people".
-Dont wanna do every single annoying part but after that the story is all over the place anyway, storylines you picked at start are not attached anyway and ends in cliffhangers. Full of boring politics, naive goodie good stuff or just "well I didn't see that one coming! /rolleyes"
After that I tried noble storyline, and it made nobles as "money throwing charity workers, helping the poor! Being rich is duty! Thief charity worker, how cool is that". After few quests I gave up and went just sPvP fully ;s
Heres what my friend had, hes comments on the story part:
Needless to say my friend, and I quote, instantly deleted hes human thief and made another race for it.-"say you dont happen to know about bunch of other thiefs (that your friend works with) might be robbing something from someone soon?"
"Yes sir they plan to rob the pharmacy right this night!"
What in the world? You are meant to be thief, not get your friend in jail.
And what happened before that too even. In thiefs HIDEOUT
Talking with my BEST THIEFING FRIEND: "wish you well man"
"you too bro"
walk outside of said HIDEOUT and a guard was waiting for me
"General wants to talk to you"
"RIGTH AWAY I MUST DO GOOD"
How important is the main story anyway, dont really feel like doing it after this :V
I might be spoiled little bit by swtor but I didnt expect it to have similiar story-elements into it. But good heavens I say, this is just..
