VPB Cast #23: “For the Love of WAR”

Welcome to our 23rd cast at mmoSmacktalk.com! Ryan is absent this week, but that’s not a problem. Thanks to the love known as WarhammerOnline we missed this week’s cast date (we always cast on Wednesdays), BUT it was well worth it! Not only did we have a blast, but we have loads to talk about. So dive in and listen up. Share your thoughts in our comments section.

1st Segment: We delve right into Warhammer. We have been playing Open Beta for a week, and we go right into discussing Character stats, abilities, skills, spells, etc.

2nd Segment: In this Seg-Seg, we discuss standard Quests, Public Quests, and influence you get from Publick Quests
and the influence rewards.

3rd Segment: We jump right into Warhammer PVP, the gear and EXP you can get in PVP, the PVP scenarios (battlegrounds),
and the “renown” points you attain while PVPing and their respective rewards…

4th Segment: A little reminiscing from back in the 80’s about nintendo, and how we only had a couple games to play; PLUS we continue right on with the PVP and RVR discussion. We compare Warhammer to DAOC RVR,and discuss how in depth Warhammer goes with RVR zones, keeps, etc.

Warhammer Online Server Info

Recently we learned that Warhammer Online will release with two different server rulesets: Core and Open RvR. I included a synopsis of the rulesets, as well as a link to site that defines them in more detail.

Core
        – Enemy factions can only attack each other if both players are flagged for PvP
        – Players are automatically flagged for PvP upon entering RvR areas or enemy PvE areas
        – Players can choose to turn their flag on at anytime

Open RvR
        – All players are constantly flagged for PvP, even in areas that are normally for PvE

Core RP
        – Just like the Core server, only players are expected to roleplay their characters

Here’s the link.

So what do you think?

VPR-B Cast #22b “Our Last Hope”

Welcome to our 22nd cast at mmoSmacktalk.com!
This week we are back with a vengeance. Last week’s failure to communicate has been snufT. Prep thine ears for the most sensual DFO (darkfallonline)analysis you’ve ever been graced to hear, and enjoy the aural foreplay as we delve into more WAR (warhammeronline).

1st Segment: Darkfall Darkfall Darkfall. We review the Darkfall team’s latest in game footage video release.

2nd Segment: Given the goodness known as DarkfallOnline we failed to complete our thoughts, and the video, from our previous segment. Here we wrap up our DFO thoughts for the time being.

3rd Segment: Hey Mom Hey Mom, my Ben is back! Benevolent Bentanica shares his perspective of the first 6 levels of his WarhammerOnline experience.

4th Segment: More of Ben’s WAR experience as well as general discussion on what you can expect for the first few levels in pve and pvp.

Ryan’s WAR Preview (levels 1-9)

Guys, during the Preview Weekend I had the opportunity to level 2 characters: the first was a RunePriest (lvl 9), and the second was a Witch Hunter (lvl 6).  I had a lot of fun and learned tons.  I can’t really say how much you’ll learn from this cast as I conduct it in a very casual way, jumping from topic to topic as they come to me.

Let me know what you think, or if you have any specific questions.  We’ll try to address them in the next VPR-B cast.

VPR Cast #22 WaR “preview weekend”

Guys, we had a kick ass cast lined up about the Warhammeronline preview weekend. Unfortunately we ran into some nasty technical issues and were unable to remedy them. In fact we recorded 2 choppy casts. I considered putting them up, but they’re pretty bad. This weekend I might cut out the good stuff and make a small montage. Regardless we want to share what we learned, so Ryan might have to put out a solo cast that includes a review of low level pvp and questing. Overall, the reports thus far are good, and we’re really looking forward to open beta. Let us know how you liked it (or disliked it).

Check back this Sunday night to see if Ryan was able to post a solo cast. If nothing is there, then we will post the next VPR-B cast late Wednesday (for all intents and purposes… Thursday a.m.).
