  1. Nice cast. Good to hear the feedback. Will be looking forward to hear what you think about Blade and Soul.

    To your auction house idea, I understand your perspective, but I just dont see clans willing to gather up on a large scale, just to use the auction house. Especially if you do the “Safe” auction house thing, where you can just do it from your bank.

    Though I can see what you mean with a quicker way to trade. Im not the biggest trader/crafter out there. So thats why I cant really speak on the traders perspective.

    I just suggested that solution because I feel there is a need for some kind of “BIG BAG OF LOOT” that is worth gathering a group of clanmates for, besides sieging a town. A clan carravan, filled with resources or treasure, going to another city to supply them , or Apoc’s idea, he mentioned in previous casts where there would be a bank on a ship. This would also give smaller clans or even clanless people a chance of getting wealthy plus increase pvp. Spoils of war is the thing im looking for.

    So it doesnt necessarily have to be the auction house, I just felt my solution would be killing 2 birds with one stone. You can trade faster, plus a big bag of spoils, for a clan willing to raid a clan city to destroy their auction house.

    But enough of that, I agree with how they need to change being able to hear someone anywhere in the dungeon. Too easy to just go in, stay at top while listening for a scream and then go down to kill.

    I believe they are gonna show herbalism some love, hopefully alot since I dont have it, and in its current state, dont want it either. Get better potions in alchemy. Like “First Aid”, gives 50 hp and stam I believe.

    I also checked out the Tera video and the reticle + the dodging things is nice. Still doesnt grab me as much as B&S but we will see.

    But yea, as I said earlier, nice to hear the feedback. Looking forward to the next and dont worry about the ranting on, the more casts the better.

    Oh and the audio on your last cast was perfect for me.


  2. Awesome Cast Ryan, Yes I like my name also.

    One thing I wanted to comment on was the dungeon sound thing goes both ways. Even though they can hear you when they enter the dungeon. We can also hear them. In most dungeons their are mobs that the players have to walk past, the MOBS cast mana missile and etc. I 100$ agree with you on how they need to redo the dungeons. I just dont think I mind the sound issue to that extent.

    Cast sounded good last week. Make the next cast about the Community expansion NEXT WEEK :)

    Purely great casual cast., nothing got me too excited or engaged but it was still a good listen while at work. I am extremely excited to hear that Billy Bones cast, I am hoping he is able to divulge some more DFO secrets unknown to us lesser hardcore enthusiasts.


  3. @Ryan I laughed so hard at this cast and the last one when you sip your coffee and go mmmMMMMMMMMMM. I am with ya bro, rant on as we love it!!!! LMAO, not that role playing garbage! Blows ass cakes, LOL, dude I love it!!!!! Dude, I love the idea of specialization in crafting, gathering combat etc. That will really make your dude very unique. Also, when respecting having that skill start are zero is a must and they need to give a week cool down as well. That gives people a reason to grind again. Also, the DDO AH sucks balls you can only search by level and type. So if you want a level 7 long sword of death you have to browse them all. You can only sort by bid or name. Having a AH in DFO is a must as it sucked hairy balls in GW not having one. In VG they had regional AH’s and it worked out very well! The one thing that bothers the fuck outa me for DFO is the god damn cheaters. Macro scripting doesn’t bother me but people being able to use a radar or anything else that like sucks. I played the free onlinr 3rd person shooter Cross Arms and people cheated all the time and glitched them selves in walls and it sucked. I will have to look more into Tera as well.

  4. @Ryan ok so now I watched all the vids of Tera Online and signed up for their news letter. I hate to admin but it looks very good and what Aion should have been. I hope they offer a beta or trial of some kinda. Also, the only nudity that I saw were the females breasts, just showing some of it. I don’t think the men really showed any skin and nothing looked gay to me at all. What videos are you watching? LMAO. I am going to keep an eye on this for sure.

  5. Good cast. AV should hire you and almost the entire playerbase posting in the suggestion forum, as they once again messed up @ archery specs. Kinda bored of DFO atm, taking a break, got into APB beta, awaiting Warband release.

    PS: Every week a podcast, I like!
