Don't know. I'm using Direct2Drive, maybe he's just downloading the Fileplanet beta? For what it's worth, I had to shell out cash to get this download.

I mean, it's cash I'd be paying in ten days anyways, so it's no big deal.

I'm very much not sold on this game.

Look, if you've given up MMORPGs entirely I understand.

Otherwise, it's something to tide you over until WotLK.

I haven't given them up and I fully intend to play WotLK. If they'd left the title for first to 80 and first of your class to 80 I would even have skipped work to level.

But I'm not sure I really need something to tide me over until...January? or whatever. It's not that long from now.

I preordered to game via amazon a long while ago. I only just looked up the open beta info (seriously, amazon.com is fairly awesome... very well organized), and I'm downloading the beta via fileplanet because that's what mythic is offering.

I didn't buy the game via D2D so I can't download it from there... and fileplanet is relatively slow.

sigh

Alright...

Pits of Zardok. High Elf Archmage named Manaran. Level 6 as of now.

PVP was fun, Public Quests were fun-ish. Questing was alright. Think I need to upgrade the PC if I decide I really like this game, the frame rate is painful, even with all of the settings turned down. They don't give you many settings to turn down, unfortunately--no smaller textures or anything.

So should I be buying this game from that d2d place and playing it right now or what? You're not providing much support for that plan with your ambivalent comments.

I'm annoyed by the frame rate right now, makes playing unfun. I THINK it would be pretty awesome if I could play.

Really, I'd wait and see what that other guy has to say unless you've got $50 you want gamble.

Look, once I actually get to play the game, I'll post the skinny on it.

Is that a motherfucking warrior priest with motherfucking "SIGMAR" tattooed on his forehead?

You bet your ass it is.

...the real problem is that I have class at 9:30 and really need to go to sleep... but I can't... I'm doomed.

I think some of my dissatisfaction lay in the archmage being a shitty class to start with.

It's about as survivable as a guy in a robe with a couple crappy HoTs and DoTs. Did I mention there's PvP? Yeeeah.

Ok... unrelated to WAR, I got about 25 minutes of sleep last night... and I'm a fellow who likes his sleep.

As such, I'm pretty much a walking corpse atm... after I've slept again, I'll write a little review of the game.

As far as the archmage... from what little I've seen in playing one, it's a very tough class. If you aren't really feeling it, I would STRONGLY recommend trying other classes. I really like the various offense-tied-to-defense and power-building mechanics that the various classes have... the archmage's is quite a wonky one, especially for solo play.

Seriously, where's that witch hunter? It has 'Dante' written all over it. If I get some more time to play later today (damn you psets), I'll give the archmage a little more of a go. My initial impression is that the class is way too fickle and walks too fine a line for me, but we'll see.

Hey, my favorite WoW main to date was a fire mage, and I've always wanted to do some healing...

But early on, this archmage has absolutely zero punch. I did start getting acceptable dps later on. It could be more the pacing of the game, really, I suppose I haven't played anything with intentionally higher dps.

Not having a decent spammable heal is retarded though.

Maybe this doesn't do it for you, but I'd seriously consider trying out a bright wizard if you like the casting.

My warrior priest is lvl 5... I think I'm going to role a high elven swordmaster and take him to 5 to see a different part of the game.
