    I'm up for elites as well, done all except Hell Eternal and The Slaughterhouse. Not sure if im geared enough for nightmares yet thought, But I'm always up for trying. Currently playing as dps but have almost full Q10 blue gear as healer as well, so i can try healing. And i also have a tanl friend

    For nightmares you basically need full QL10 blues and a good spec, and obviously to have completed all the elites and killed the Gatekeeper :P For builds I can recommend http://wordpress.tswguides.com/tsw-build-page/ I got my dps build from there and I'm doing quite well with it.

    Healing seems to be a bit more complicated to do in nightmares. From what I've noticed, either you have a perfect spec that's ready for anything (no assault rifle shenanigans unfortunately until higher levels of gear) AND QL10 blues with a nice distribution of crit and crit power, or you have an overgeared tank :P Likewise with tanks. Dps seems to be ok with a good synergy spec and not standing in the bad stuff :P

    There are a few things that are pretty important to bring to nightmare dungeons when you start out, and they will get you bonus brownie points. Having Cleanup (from shotguns), any consistent purge effect and the ability to supply debilitate (-30% damage dealt by the boss) consistently. You don't have to have 'em all at once, but generally the group as a whole has to bring at least two.

    Yeah, unfortunetly I love AR so I will stick to that <: I'd say my group is at least decent, managed to clear almost every elite with just one wipe(on the last boss in the facility). I know nightmares are a lot tougher but hopefully it won't be impossible with AR/Blood(which I actually think it will be >

    The difference between elites and nightmares is VERY steep :P I was impressed with how nasty it was. At least in full QL10 blues.

    Damn missions got hard all of a sudden >_< I can barely even kill 1 mob at a time since it has debuff resistance, impairment immunity, 35% extra dodges(god i hate vampires) and an impairment effect themself. While I do like a challenge in a game, and I would love to team up with a friend, it is really starting to get annoying when you have to use healing potions in every fight that contains of 2 "medium" mobs. Larger mobs(14k hp+) and like 4 smaller ones I can handle. And I don't have a friend to play with

    It do seem there is some kind of OP build containing a sword and a hammer, since another guy with roughly the same gear quality as me could solo 2-3 packs at once..

    I'm so happy someone changed the title from Free-to-play to Buy-to-play , I saw it earlier and was tempted to make a post saying it was a misdescription but didn't want to make a pointless OT post..

    Nightmare mobs require builds with special properties. Fights are a breeze if your build can supply the needed debuffs or cleanses and hard as nails if you can't.

    Think of the fight as a puzzle. Check the buffs of the creatures you're going up against before engaging. Tailor your build to suit.

    That sounds really fun but frustrating at the same time, "sorry I have to farm 150 anima points for that spell"

    I played Beta and thoroughly enjoyed it, but it ran a bit crappy on my PC due to optimization not being done. How is it running now, and is the game fun at endgame?
    Bow down before our new furry overlords!

    Well, I run with a 560TI card and I max it (Usually run with SSAO and edge smoothing off) without too much problem, though I have to turn down the graphics a bit in London or it crash. As for endgame, I'm not quite sure what "endgame" actually is as I'm currently playing elite(tier 2 of 3 you could say) dungeons and I still have 2½ "leveling" zones left. Endgame is Nightmare modes and the raid I would guess, and since I haven't gotten there yet I can't tell you much about it though I would definetely recommend this game if you enjoyed it in beta.

    Seems like no optimization was done. I was barely running it in beta, on minimum details. Now, on the same PC it runs slightly slower and I get occasional "out of memory" error. With nothing else running in the background
    I have enough of EA ruining great franchises and studios, forcing DRM and Origin on their games, releasing incomplete games only to sell day-1 DLCs or spill dozens of DLCs, and then saying it, and microtransactions, is what players want, stopping players from giving EA games poor reviews, as well as deflecting complaints with cheap PR tricks.

    I'm not going to buy any game by EA as long as they continue those practices.

    Hmmm I have a fairly old system and have no trouble, what are you running?

    I have a Q6600 Core 2 Quad 2.4
    8 gigs of ram
    Nvidia GTX460

    Very old system by todays standards and I have not had a single issue with graphics or lag outside of occasional network lag.

    As far as performance goes, the game doesn't really like anything other than nvidia video cards and 64 bit OS.
    Meh.

    I wouldn't classify this as very old

    I have Lenovo y550, windows 7 32 bit, 4 (or rather 3) GB of RAM, core 2 DUO T6600 2.2 Ghz and Geforce GT 240M
    But the point was that it runs slightly worse now than it did in beta

    I am stuck. I spent hours running around in the swearer in that zombie infeasted town looking for that one guy. He's never there and I leave out of that place and came back to same spot I was in in.

    It's number 5/10 on mission log

    Is this what you're looking for? Not sure, but it matches the description you gave us(yeah the spelling of the quest in the link is wrong on purpose, for some reason the creator spelled it wrong and it hasn't been fixed yet). Dawning of an endless night is a rough first chain, but it is interesting and fun. Also if you're ever stuck that website is very good for nearly every quest, and I have found lots of use for it on things I get stuck on(especially the quests where you have to do online research; I hate doing online research :/ It's like another uni class).

    Edit: Dang it Sarahjane I didn't notice that was you. Changing your profile pic and stuff.

    I don't think there are any main mission with more than 6-7 tiers to them(as far as I have seen). So going by the sewers and tier 5 I assume it was a mistake or mistype and linked that. TSW is an amazing game, but I think most people got more interested in it when they dropped the subscription requirement.
