    It's called a Role-Playing Game for a reason... Maybe these are the wrong kind of games for you? The game revolves around that one character that you make, I sure as hell hope I look different than other people. The customization in this game is amazing, and the gameplay is up there too, although I've only seen levels 1-15.

    Get to the 30s grind fest then you will see :(

    I guess I just had enough with clicking and button smashing games for now.
    I just can't wait for Monster Hunter Frontier :D

    hehe. Yeah that's what I hear. I find getting friends together and chatting on vent or something while grinding together helps with the grind fest that most mmo's turn into.

    I personally don't mind watching my character progress through quests. Every game has them, I don't see them any different, even if your not killing x of these, it's always a basic kill something or do something layout.

    What I hate is grinding resources, but watching my character increase in level and fight better tings has always been something I really enjoyed. I don't want a game that doesn't have that, it doesn't make the character feel like your own till you have some good seat time with them, almost think of them as a friend.

    I like MMO fantasy style games.BUt the only thing i hate are BOT's.I left lineage2 because of too many bots.Hope here will be less annoying bots at the start atleast for some months.When they will swarm all over the servers like a plague.

    Bots starts poring in on the Taiwan servers even during closed beta. :cry:

    The thing about Aion is that the 30s is all about killing X monster a thousand times....

    I believe that Israphael name is changing to something else. There should be a new server name list coming up. But I might be wrong.

    Anyways we should all get on the same server/side. Try not to be scattered. I have a preorder so I'll be setting things up on the 18th.

    Human Error's list is what I have as well. I'm on the west coast and am already meeting a UK buddy half way. It's only a 100 ms ping difference as far as i could see so i figured it wouldn't impact me that much (famous last words).

    What's everyone rolling?

    Between Sorc, Ranger, or Assasin...I probably won't pick till the 18th.

    Your mate in the UK will need the NA serial key to play on a US server btw (just so they don't get caught out).

    I'm rollin' a templar as i loved it in the CBs and since it matches very closely my first MMO pvp character (which was in SW:G and was a jedi tank - couldn't kill very fast but he was amazing at hassling healers so they'd forget about their team and panic heal themselves :D)

    Sweet thanks for the list. Israphel sound's good to me. What's side everyone going?


    I'm either rolling a Cleric, doing a Templar again, or gladiator.

    I vote Asmodian only becasue Elyos armor looks so fruity...if I decide to roll Ranger or Assassin, I can't stand the idea of having armor that has a unicorn head on my shoulder!

    On a side note...I just got my Razer Naga (new mouse) this morning and have been testing it on Warhammer Online most of the day. I am dumbfounded and astounded that a mouse like this hasn't come out till now! I could have bypassed learning keybinds 1 through = system all together! This mouse will be great for melee and the ranger as I’ve officially ruled a sorcerer out!

    I know its $79 but honestly it’s a worthwhile investment as it’s a well built piece of hardware from Razer!

    *edit*and before anyone reads this rave review and says something stupid like I am a Razer employee or paid or whatever other stupid shit people say, shove it! I am just a happy ass consumer!

    The numbered buttons seem awfully small and close together. Don't you accidentally hit the wrong key quite often?

    That’s actually a good question, I did some prep work before I even opened a game up (and yeah I tested Warhammer, Champions Online, and TF2 obviously to see if this was a viable FPS mouse as well).

    What I did was opened a word document and practiced hitting the #s in succession forwards and backwards. I did it maybe 50 times and only messed up twice. I did it about 50 more times and messed up once with a double click of the 10 button. I felt ready and tried it in war first...I was able to mow people down just as fast as I do with the standard 1234567890-= (& shift & alt). I honestly didn’t see much of a difference in any case.
