    The old ARGs were CRAZY. I knew just about everything about Amundsen at one point. I wish I still had the original email for that, it was so cool.

    Yeah typically that happens when things change.

    I'm happy the game is getting a resurgence of life I've been watching a few streams to see if I might get back into the game. I tried it in beta and after watching some streams I know it's just not my type of game I can't see myself investing time in the game even though it's b2p.

    Was it time travel o_O? I never got that, I just thought it was where Amundsen disappeared in 1928(?), near Shambala. I never quite understood the people going around, the memories you "pick up" or what the voice is talking about. If anyone could enlighten me it would be great as I feel like I have a big hole inside me, as if there is something important I'm missing.

    All this is supposedly going to be built upon in the future. But no, I don't think that was a time-traveling bit. Amundsen disappeared in '28 when the plane he was riding in (a Latham 47) went down and was never found. The theory went that they actually found a gate to Agartha and that's why they were never found.

    Waait, Agartha is taken from reality!? I thought Funcom made it up, god damit there is so much information I have yet to aqcuire >_< Oh, how I wish I could live forever and learn everything there is to learn>: Could you possibly tell me a few things I could read that relates to TSW :3? Games get so much deeper when you actually take time to read everything surrounding them. Going to read about Agartha and Shamballa now at least, no sleep yet woho!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agartha

    http://wiki.crygaia.com is a good resource when it's actually up. I'll have to poke one of the admins there and see what's up.

    Kind of a random though, but damn this game is unforgiving. No classes, so you have plenty of rope to hang yourself. i finally figured out a decent leveling build, and figured out gear Game is going a lot better. aint no wow though, no aoe gringind. Mostly I survive if i pull two mobs, but barely.
    Get a grip man! It's CHEESE!

    the thing i have with this game is that i always dont got the motivation to start playing..
    BUT when i start playing i play for hours just following the awesome story =)

    I tried this game last night. Its certainty different. It has adult words in it and its bizarre in a strange way. I thought it was very compelling the story line however the combat leaves much to be desired. Though its entertaining and since I'm very very early. Not much I can say certainty not bad. I'll be able to detail the more I play.

    Leveling combat is pretty run of the mill stuff, but it gets exciting in the dungeons where you have to move a lot and the pace is pretty fast in some fights (The Ankh has some siiiiiick fights).

    Edit: Here's a video I did with the folks from the CryGaia wiki, tanking Ankh on normal difficulty. Lot of downtime but we had fun.

    Hers a short video I took. Shows the level of detail in the graphics. Not bad at all.

    Thinking about picking this up to kill time with since the price is so low. I was wondering if there are any tips for beginners and if there is any sort of guild (or whatever it's called here) recruitment location online or in game. I'm a pretty casual player but I want to find a good group of people to chat with as I play and hopefully eventually get into the bigger group content.

    http://wordpress.tswguides.com/newplayerguide/ is a good read. It exaggerates a bit on how hard you can fuck yourself over by the 'wrong' build. Just go for one of the starter decks you find fun and take it from there. And don't stress it about the bigger group content. This game is -very- much about the journey rather than the destination.

    http://wordpress.tswguides.com/build...play-to-build/ is also a good read if you feel like you're getting overwhelmed by the skill system. The most important piece of advice there is that you should NEVER be afraid to try new things and you will not be fucked over if you decide to switch your character around. I swapped from assault rifles / shotgun into blood magic / elementalism on my Illuminati character and it took all of two crafted weapons and three missions before I had a rudimentary build up with seven actives and seven passives. I did not have to re-do any content.


    Oh, final edit (for now).. it's infinitely more fun to use and develop your own build rather than copy/pasting something off a webpage. With a bit of effort and clever usage of passives, you can make pretty much anything work. Don't let anybody tell you otherwise.

    I just got together with a group and we did all elites except the two last, I just love when you find people you really enjoy playing with, it really is a great feeling. We will play more as well, hopefully progressing together

    On another note, I REALLY like the transylvania music, the moment I got there, looked at the map(which is amazing) and heard this song I knew I'd love transylvania, first time i have been so hyped over just a map and some music.



    Edit: Look at that, I listened to the song when I linked it and now I have a too big of an urge to play, that I cannot resist.

    The music is amazing. I bought the OST on Amazon as soon as I heard it was up. The music that played the first time you meet all the Sentinels in Egypt tugged at me pretty good. Who could forget the Siren's Song too?

    Yeah, both of them are awesome, kind of sad that the sentinel songs were so short >:

    I do love the mix of post-apocalysm and "traditional" style in Trans, we have all these old, romanian(I believe?) houses such as the first village, we have an old type of church but still these industrial ruins, and ruins of more modern architecture, and then mix in so much from fairytales and legends, it's amazing

    I've been taking it slower, but if I should be QL10 this weekend. Want to run a few heroic dungeons when I get there?

    By the by, if anyone wants to run nightmares, feel free to send a tell to Deylana if I'm online, I've only done polaris so far, but my gear and spec are good for it (dps) Just lemme know you're from mmo-champ, I'm generally a little apprehensive with complete strangers. Oh, and I play with a tank friend
    Meh.

    I'm probably geared enough for Elites, but haven't done a dungeon in quite a while. I'm always up for trying! My main' is Melisande on Arcadia.
