    Yeah. It's completelly my personal opinion and to be frank I didn't mind it at first either.

    My part in this story has been decided. And I will play it well.

    Well, the more I played it the less I liked it. I like how TSW handled things. Honestly, some of the cutscenes would've been ruined if PCs talked. There's a ranking mission cutscene where my character is trying to get a drink, and the barkeeper doesn't see her. She's waving her arms frantically and it's so funny. Sonnac said to go get a drink, and as a recruit, she's just trying to follow orders. I also like the jabs some of the NPCs take at you for not talking, kind of like the game is making fun of yourself.

    I didn't like the mute thing at first, but the more I play and more I get immersed, it really makes sense to me why my character doesn't talk.

    I've had my eye on The Secret World for the past week. I haven't ever really gotten into an MMO except for an attempt at WOW back in 2004 as well as a short stint with AION. Anyway, I'm in the midst of figuring a computer to build and wanted to get someone's advice on a build I'm researching to play The Secret World as I'd like to play it on high settings (ultra would be nice, but i'm not holding my breath). Now budget is a huge concern for me as I have a baby on the way (my first!), and so, I would really rather not go over $600. Anyhoo,below are my specs...

    TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

    ASUS M5A97 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

    GIGABYTE GV-R777OC-1GD Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX

    Oh, and I was curious if anyone had any extra buddy keys? I'd really like to give this game a go before purchasing.
    Hexacore AMD Phenom, Radeon 7900 series, no problem whatsoever on ultra.

    Add to that in SWTOR when you level alt you get to see the very same dialogues once again. If you do the same dungeon or raid once again you also see the same dialogues. If you do group content some want to see the videos for the umptieth time, some want to skip them, some are OK waiting for others. I fall in the last category, but only if it is their first time they see the videos. Else I see it as a waste of time.

    I'm running slightly higher than medium on an overclocked Radeon HD4800 512MB, Dualcore 2.8GHz and 4GB RAM, so imagine you'll be fine on High.

    I completely misunderstood your post then, sorry.

    Did you talk to the knight of the circle after you've completed this quest? I found him to be outstanding even in the world of outstanding npcs.

    I suggest taking it to http://www.mmo-champion.com/forums/290-Computer subforums. They'll help you pick the best bang for buck atm.

    As a sidenote - it's an MMO so unless I'm gravely mistaken CPU is far more important than GPU in MMO-specific builds so I'm not sure if this AMD will be good enough. To the Computer subforums, at once!

    What are some decks that people are using for Dragon?

    I'm thinking of joining Dragon, but haven't decided on a deck yet.

    ---------- Post added 2012-07-18 at 05:27 PM ----------

    Or maybe I should go for Templar as I hear they're pretty awesome looking...

  11. #2171
    Templar do have the best looking outfits in my opinion.

    Honestly I think you should pick the faction that fits your personality the best. I thought I was going to like Illuminati, but it turns out the Templars had an outlook that fit me more. The new Templars are trying to get rid of the stuffy old style and inject some youth and technology into the organization, yet still trying to fight for the greater good for good's sake.

    Illuminati just came across as sore losers almost, like they're just fighting bad because bad caught them unawares.

    And chaos is kind of crazy bunch to put it mildly

    I found Dragon to be the most interesting. But then I kind of like the chaos theory.

    I agree. Even if I may prefere Templars, Dragons are the interesting ones.

    Well at the start the guy basically says they are terrorists ... but they do just small stuff. And I immediatelly go wait a minute - I don't really want to play a terrorist But the game is not really giving you a choice does it ... it's interesting to say at least.

    Yeah that one's a bitch. I've been questing in groups here lately so it wasn't undoable, but most of Transylvania is easier to do in groups than solo anyways.
