    In the end you exactly do what you said, you're bringing them to a place and AoE them down. The only difference is that mobs can stagger you, that's something you cannot do to them, but besides that the AI is as simple as it gets, always repeating the script that's programmed into them.

    Just look at this short clip from 5:51 on (the important part starts at 6:10 - it's the footage shown, not what the guy says):


    The mobs don't have a mentionable AI, they follow you (as long as you're the player with the highest level in their aggro range).

    If your mouse has mouse buttons, I highly suggest binding your weapons to them. That's what I did and it made a massive difference. Weapon 1 is upper, weapon 2 is lower mouse button. Weapon swap is still as clunky as it gets, but way more controlable.

    For skills I did the same as you said, got them 1 2 3 while buffood / potions got 4 5 6 7.
    Why not use a single key to swap weapons?? Much simpler

    I didn't do this because weapon swap is incredibly clunky and sometimes you need to hit the button more than once to get it done. If it's the same button for both I'd accidentally swap weapons back and forth and would lose control. That's why I chose to gave both weapons different keybinds.

    No it isn't and people need to stop making this comparison, Runescape actually has a full fledged endgame (and tons of it).

    (example of one small part of that endgame)


    New World and Runescape isn't even close to being like each other. Just because you can cut a tree doesn't make NW like Runescape.

    New World lacks content (not just endgame content) and that is due to the fact it was originally made to be a PVP focused MMO.

    It's a mostly fun and different take on MMOs than anything else really. Not perfect, but pretty solid.

    No sub and only $40.

    Will only get better.

    D2R is fun also, but I only played in for a few days and haven't had much desire to play it since beating normal difficulty.

    I'd suggest New World between the two.

    yeah its def worth the money. Its a one time cost and right now there no reason to rushing it to 60. Lots of hours can be spendt in the game and you get the values worth of it.

    lol imagine being 'VERY worried' about a video game, jeez.

    NW won't replace WoW, but its great fun for the price and you can sink many hours into the game which gives it a decent cost/gameplay ratio.

    It's clunky until you realize weapon swap is an action that only happens after you've finished the previous one. That's why swapping weapons during a roll makes it faster. The roll can also be speed up by any action like swapping weapons, sheathing/unsheathing and attacking or using a skill

    it's like weapons are any different

    rapier is not fun either you just push lmb and abilities on cd

    Amazon seems to be losing the PR war with the game. A lot of news gaining traction of automated bans from mass reporting. Some seem possible others seem like people did something else and are blaming mass reports as a scapegoat. There are also a lot of exploits that don't seem to be getting anything done. Some are the normal fast spawning game design (like boarsholm). I've heard of others but don't know enough to comment. But they certainly are disruptive at least in the early days of servers where first/fastest to 60 can get faction dominance.

    They've said they don't have automated bans and that all bans have a human review them. This is a popular narrative any time folks get banned in games.

    While I'm super skeptic about New World going anywhere more than Eve went, it's really just typical launch vies for such games.

    Of course there will be a ton of exploits and nonsense going on, it will take a good year to patch most of it, just like in every such big online game, especially new release and not 500th evolution or expansion.

    Can't really blame them for that one - people who jump into new MMO launch should really expect this and it will always be a thing.

    Well these human reviews probably are pretty much "automated" too - I bet the minimum wage modern day slaves doing the reviews aren't going to go CSI:Miami over every report - if they see someone having multiple reports they probably just slam that ban button and move on with their backlog of thousands more cases.
    All my ignores are permanently filtered out and invisible to me. Responding to my posts with nonsense or insults is pointless, you're likely already invisible and if not - 3 clicks away. One ignore is much better than 3 pages of trolling.

    That's a blatant lie on their part. It's literally financially impossible to have humans review all the bans (it's cheaper to ban all players, shut down game servers and go home). It's always "ban first - human review later" and most bans are automated, especially with the reporting feature. it's one of the primary reasons for the report feature - automated bans, so no need to human review all the reports. Only those that complain about the ban.

    People of course may claim they are innocent and it was fake reporting resulting in autoban - but that doesn't mean it's not an autoban due to reporting.
    All right, gentlepersons, let's review. The year is 2022 - that's two-zero-two-two, as in the 21st Century's perfect vision - and I am sorry to say the world has become a pussy-whipped, Brady Bunch version of itself, run by a bunch of double-masked tripple-jabbed sissies.

    game daytime isnt synced between players on your server, meaning one player can see the sun shining and the other one can see the moon. why?????????
    was it too hard for them to sync such a simple thing? is that too much to ask for developers to code properly? these kind of little things astonish me.

    inb4 it doesnt matter. it DOES matter. visibility makes a big difference for gathering alone.

    They could be arguing that mass reporting is not automated in the sense that it requires a dozen of players to report you before the system will eventually ban you. There are multiple people/companies who tried this out over the last week and you definitely get banned by people mass reporting you.

    In sort of burned out on the game, but I can do 1 level a day while in discord with a friend. The problem is that I don't know exactly what I have to look forward to or the reason why I'm grinding when the gameplay will basically be the same. Besides level 60 unlocking outpost rushes (why were these locked to only level 60's?). I cant believe an MMO launched in 2021 doesn't have an instanced pvp mode you can join while leveling. Wow battleground after level 10, ESO cyrodil is any level, ff14 after level 10, etc. And wars are only for 50 people on each faction at a select time of the day.

    Is that the case with plauets in the same spot or does the game have a moving sun?

    I mean they even blatantly lied about server transfers being cross regional a week ago to say now they're region-locked.

    Or, there was an internal communications failure. I mean, it's still bad and I'm not defending the mistake since they got a lot of folks hopes up, but I think you'd be hard pressed to show any evidence that this was an intentional/calculated move on their part.

    Yeah, its VERY weird that they dont have instanced pvp in this game. Especially when this was supposed to be a PvP game from the start. Thats like were the idea of the game came from, a pvp centric MMO. Yet they havent opend up for pvp 1-59. I dont get it.

    It would be a much welcomed change of pace if we could queue for a instanced BG while leveling. Theres really not much pvp going on out in the world. I leave pvp on most of the time, and theres nothing going on. Im level 33 now and I dont have the big urge to play alot.

    I'll reach 60 eventually though and i'll enjoy most of the leveling, albeit it will go slow. Atleast I have a lvl 60 ready to go when new content arrives later.

    I mean it wasn’t just a random dude from the communications team saying that. It was an official response in the medium they use the most to communicate (which, unfortunately, is Twitter and not their own forum):

    https://twitter.com/playnewworld/sta...222047233?s=21

    So intentional or not, but they’ve been very careful what they officially post. I don’t know if anything like this can “slip through“. But yes, mistakes happen, as you said.
