As the title says i don't do betas. I've been playing MMOs for a long time now and I just don't like the concept of playing the beta from a players perspective. I appreciate all you who do play the beta for the right reason of checking for and reporting bugs.. you make my discovery experience better for it. The discovery experience seems to be the best aspect of mmos for me, the exploring new places - finding new things - fighting new dungeon/raid bosses and beta feels like oh so much a spoiler to that experience. I only now watch videos of boss fights before trying a boss because being the idiot dying to unknown mechanics is unacceptable, as it should be. So, on to the point of this thread - for those that did 'do the beta' tell us all who didn't something we should know. Spoilers ahead possibly, be warned.
Dimensions, I heard we were getting player housing thought meh whatever, tried one in beta then couldn't stop I showed a couple to a friend who plays minecraft, he bought the game yesterday just for them
Same here, Most people play Beta's for a jump/Edge at whats to come, I myself enjoy games for the Solo experience. Doing what i want when i want. Dont get me wrong - Not saying its bad to play for Sport, Its Just not my cup of tea.
The 150% mounts are now 130% and they are bears at the entrance to Tempest Bay. They require level 51 and 300p to purchase.
Edit: I think the spider mounts are 150% and not 200% (the older speeds were in beta only) and I've not got to the area yet but I think their 1000p and notoriety (rep) is required for those.
Somehow I got the impression that 150% and 200% were just tooltip errors rather than actual mount speeds on the beta, but I'm not sure. I already bought my 130% mount but haven't hit 51 yet, so I can't tell if it feels the same as the bear did on beta.
