75BRD and WHM. No wonder you didn't like it.
2 of the most useful classes but that's all you'll ever be with those classes.

I had a 75RDM, 75 KC DRK and 75 WAR.

RDM being the most useful class, it was also the least boring class.

CC this, heal that, DPS that, remove debuff from allies, buff allies while kiting this.
All in one package. Seriously best fun I've ever had.

I've been there, I had magic resist in the high 90's, don't remember if I ever made gm in my 2 years in ultima but I didn't play to level, I played to play.

Killed a billion quenkers on a permadeath jedi too in another galaxy, that was tedious. They changed the system when I was one box off grand master.
things need to change

during classic era the 2 guys with the fastest rr10 in the world were in my guild. it took them roughly 42 days /played. this was all long before ToA, it took averageJoe ALOT longer. id feast on the tears on this forum if it took even half as long to get to valor 60 in swtor.


Wow.

This is a COMPUTER GAME. Emphasis on G A M E.

_Real_ achievement is starting your own business, graduating college, raising a kid, mastering a sport or a musical instrument. No MMO ever made can compare to any of these activities in terms of "work" or "commitment." MMO's (ALL of them, even Eve and UO) are designed to create the _feeling_ of achievement. But it's bogus, sugar, candy coated fluff - not the real deal. Let's face it - with a computer game, you progress by _sitting on your a ss in front of a screen, clicking buttons_. No one is forced to play computer games (except for Asian gold slaves I guess) . . . they are leisure activities. People who boast about their "hard work attitude" in this or that game deserve pity, not respect.

Noble in Lineage 2 without botting.

I decided after that though, grind is not good.

Much love for my T-Staff. How about Griffen Eggs, or the VT Key? Remember how long it took to get the Cleric Epic (Was like a week long camp for a guild). My Father in Law once bound in Fear - I think I counted over a hundred corpses at one point, they were literally dotting the landscape LMAO.


I hear yah man, and I have great memories of EQ, but the grind in EQ was a pointless time sink and not fun. The new Champion Bag system in TOR is a pretty well balanced grind.

The next generation of gamers will be making fun of you for using a mouse and keyboard to play games.

LOL GAMES ARE ACTUALLY INTERACTIVE. GET OUT OF THE COMPUTER CHAIR NERD. LOL A MONITOR? KEYBOARD AND MOUSE? WHAT A NUISANCE GET A LIFE.
