    There are a bunch of options to customize how healing works a bit, I think they have "lock ons" where it will lock friendly targets you mouseover. Healing isn't really a "full time role" in the game the way it is in traditional trinity based games from what I can tell. Healers absolutely don't have the kits to pump out tons of heals all the time, folks have to mitigate their own incoming damage by avoiding it and using their own potions to help out.

    The balance seems way off. Green/Purple seem by far the most popular but maybe other servers are more balanced. Steam global achievements have 26% purple, 23% green, and 12% yellow. Not really sure how the territory warfare plays out but I can see the biggest two on a server gaining critical mass over the 3rd. More land or smaller towns to control might work better.

    But these are just observations from a new low/medium pop server with two towns controlled. At least you can change factions once every 120 days so you are not locked in for good if things don't work out.

    I mean after playing New World, all i think is i'm so not playing an mmorpg, all there is to look forward to is more raids, where's the beef? i mean where's the mmorpg?

    Balance will always be off no matter what with factions, that's just human nature. Blizzard still struggles to find balance in WoW with its two factions. I'm not sure what kind of mechanics exist to encourage more even distribution, or if any exist, but they can't exactly arbitrarily force equality of factions. I'm on a server where Covenant (yellow) owns a whopping one starting territory and the other factions own the rest. It's a bit lame, but again this isn't terribly surprising at launch to see folks naturally gravitate towards the bigger/more popular factions overall.

    We'll have to see how things settle out once the launch rush has died down.

    games without it struggle too, but it doesn't matter

    new world is different. crafting and profession are one of the main parts of the game
    and you can't make game with crafting focus where it will be useless in a few months. it's just bad design decision

    The professions system is actually one of the more polished things in this game. Divided in to 3 categories, gather, refine and craft. The basic idea of the crafting is to craft to yourself and not to others but some people will skip levelling professions and they will need some of the legendary gear in the end.

    2000 player cap on server, no alts, no way to lose gear.

    how many armorers will be able to fullfill demand of the serverbase? I'm guessing about 10
    why would anyone need another armorer if everyone done?

    LOVE LOVE LOVE New World umm? did i mention i LOVE New World - haha

    That's why i want out of my raid commitments, but i'm not a quitter, nor do i ever let anyone down. I'm talking about it though, that's something i know i won't do, turn my back on them, but i'm not going to lose sleep if the team collapses.

    I respect good hard dedicated players, i respect people with integrity, commitment, and that's many of the people i raid with, it's hard to dis wow knowing there are millions of decent peeps playing wow, it's just those elitist turds, one bad apple right.

    Lately though, last couple months we're stagnating hard at 5/10 mythic, speaking of progression, it seems like each night we are progressively getting worse is all and finding or feeling i'm just wasting my time, i could be in New World having a blast.

    We lost a dps to ffxiv, which is fine but was the husband of our prime healer, and like a week later "well i'm off to ffxiv to join my husband, thanks all", uggg like we didn't see that coming, and then the scandal, then all the pod casters, streamers, youtube channels dumping wow like it was the plague, it's taken the wind out of peoples sails, and kinda like New World did to me.

    New World is a flat out better overall fit for me game wise is all. mmorpg wise that is.

    Player cap seems to have been increased on servers, not sure where it's at now.
    You can have one alt on another server, but alts on the same server seems fairly pointless since it A) doesn't open anything "new" since there are no classes and B) causes issues for faction balance and folks easily being able to hop over to check out the faction chat for another faction and report back.

    How many armorers? Depends. I imagine a lot of folks won't use the AH and will just be making gear for themselves or within their companies. Companies may try to keep more valuable crafts internal, limiting access to them. Beyond that there will likely be demand for different types of armor as folks put together multiple sets of gear.

    And I'm not sure exactly how the endgame crafting is, but it seems like crafting will continue to be supported in the longterm so there will be demand for crafters specializing in different things (i.e. focusing on those resources) and just more crafters for more price competition.

    Losing gear would likely push more folks away than anything else. Full loot PvP was initially planned for the game back in early 2020, but they scrapped that since nobody really wanted to deal with it. PvP focused MMO's remain fairly niche overall, especially hardcore PvP games.

    Why would there have to be need after everyone is done with crafting gear? Same applies in every game.

    i'm just wondering why would anyone bother creating such complex crafting system and then shooting themselves in the foot making the possibility it will become useless

    new players in big servers in half a year will be doomed.

    about the 3 faction thing. on the new server i rolled on syndicate has the most players by far so the other two factions made an alliance to work against them. that's probably why it's better to have 3 instead of 2. it's easier to just pile on 1 faction when it's just 2.
    I had fun once, it was terrible.

    OK that's the extra character slot, makes it seem like i could just make it on my existing server, dealing with queue be like not f'ing with that atm lol.

    Yeah it's a game where you need or should at the minimum have some drive to do things for yourself.

    Great example was a quest i need 3 of this whatever plant, and three of some other plant.

    Curious, i checked the market a 100 gold each, and 55 each for the other. Nearly 500 gold poof.

    or...

    Go harvest it yourself, and sell some extras on the AH.

    OBV going to harvest myself, and finally come across one, while i'm out doing other things and... /record scratch moment

    You need 30 Harvesting Skill!!!

    I'm at 18 harvest skill, ok gotta get my harvest skill up, and what seems like a hard thing to level at first, i stumbled across a farmers field, or two, hint hint.

    So i mean that isn't my prime goal to skill that up, if you went direct on everything in the i gotta get this done right now, you'll drive yourself nuts. It's just gotta be in your head to make sure you pay attention to that task while doing other things.

    I mean when i get close to a pinnacle say, 50 mining and i'm 46 i'll probaly go slam that out, but not going to go 0 to 50 on that, you integrate it in to your play.

    In the situation above if you bought all that from the AH, this "might" not be the game for you as that's really a "i want it now" trait.

    Mini map i can do without, once you are in a few hours you no longer miss it, however the ability to use more markers and bookmarks on the map however that i do miss
    Chat is terrible, do not know what they were thinking it also is not working properly.

    Quite a lot of improvements left for the game but it is just released we will see what their plans are for the future.

    I'm enjoying New World so far. The only problems that I have---and I understand the design decisions (except one), and they are just frustrating:

    You use your PvP missions if you die. Ok fine, but getting ganked 10 seconds from the sanctuary to turn in feels bad---it's a 10-20 min time loss. Grouping helps, but that leads me to:

    Finding groups is Classic Wow-style. It takes a while, but whatever. You can't share quests though, so that's a frustration.

    I built a caster - all intellect, fire/ice focus. Aiming my regular spells at range is not easy because the reticle is placed oddly off-center. No worries. Practice makes perfect, right? PvE is no problem at all; I almost never take damage with the dodging and kiting.

    In PvP? Regular spell attacks, turns out, are almost impossible to aim in combat with melee jumping all over the damn place. So just hang back and cast AOE at range?

    ....But then the game designer gave big melee weapons a big gap closer or an AOE knockdown stun and at the same time forced casters to walk at a snail's pace while attacking. Even in a group, an exposed caster is one missed dodge away from being globaled by a war hammer or greataxe, and it's not like we're doing massive glass cannon damage to compensate either. I don't get this design decision at all---if you're a caster, you're absolutely boned if players get in your melee range, and there's no way to effectively stop them from doing that. You can't even run away.

    It's like if you took away Blink and Ice Nova from Mages, gave them clearcasting, but they could only RP walk while casting and for 2 seconds after every cast, while every melee character gets Charge and War Stomp. I'm not sure who thought that was going to be a good idea. Maybe it gets better at max level?

    And lastly:
    WHY DID SOMEONE THINK TO MAKE "VISIT ALL 12 TOWERS" INTO 4 GODDAMNED CHAINED QUESTS? Even the quest giver sounds embarrassed to ask you to run to the next 3 to get those astrolabes. Fuck that guy. I could make one full loop in half the time it would take to run back and forth to Everfall.

    Having a stat cap on gear is fine. The question is whether or not theres content that allows you use the gear. PVP is aby other genre isbt avouy outgearing yoir opponent and same MMORPG s have been able to di it as well. Thise games make uo fot it with build diversity and engaging gameplay though.

    what is wrong with everyone becoming full build with nothing left to hunt for? I've never understood why people think this is a bad thing. Fucking break players' idiotic carrot on a stick mentality and make something fun enough to justify playing on its own. PvP games like COD seem to do this just fine, why can't someone fucking figure this out for pve? I guess the gratification of pwning another real life human takes the enjoyment to that next level?
