Non-WoW post

Just had to give myself a reason to come into the Wow..er I mean MMORPG forum!

There are other MMORPGs? Huh. Learn something new every day.

You need a more descriptive headline. And post content is always refreshing.

Hmmmm... how about that Matrix Online MMORPG... it was delayed again until ""Spring 2005"". Boy, I''d love to break the NDA on my Beta Test experience with it but I think I''d rather play WoW...

Speaking of play tests, I had a MS play test this past weekend. It was fun, they were out of XPsp2 boxes though so I get to wait 6-8weeks for them to ship it.

Heh,
with all the WoW posts, it reminds me of when we started in CoH!

Yeah, I wish there was some non-WoW content here myself. I''m a MMORPG news junkie. I''d love a first-hand report about DAoC''s new expansion.. information, rumors, or blatant speculation about SWG''s alleged combat revamp.. some idea of what''s going on in ATITD2 would be nice, too.

I suppose if I feel that way I should start a thread about EQ2. I''ll do that later.

That would be great!

Here is a funny story, I got a cool quest drop, the sword of berik. I don''t use swords, so my friend really wanted it, so I thought I would do the quest anyway and give it to him.

The spawns needed are really (i Mean really!) rare in Stormhold. So I spent alot of time this weekend trying to finish the quest.

Only one more named left, when I;m talking to another friend that says he has the sword and it''s great. When I tell him my plan he drops this bomb on me.

HIM: um...it''s a no-trade item.

D''OH

Which named mobs do you need to kill? I''m on the first, kill 100 former knights, step of that quest right now

You need Lord Byron who spawns in the Quartermaster room, Battlepriest Alexandria that spawns where the other Battlepriest is near Atrium, and Blacksmith Brigg, which is on the first level past the atrium stairs door.

EDIT: BTW what server are you on?

Everfrost. I run a dwarf paladin-to-be, my wife runs a fury no warden no fury okay probably fury, both level 18 as of last night, named Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.

I also frequently log on my 20 illusionist//22 alchemist/money tree, Bascan. I might play him again someday, I like the character a lot.. this touches on the longer post I''ll write later

Yeah karmajay that is a great sword I still use it on my 29 paladin but I have a weakened ghoulbane to use as soon as I hit 32.

Which would be a lot faster if I did not go and make a Ratonga Brawler, Bruiser to be.

These boots were made for..... quest is also a decent quest if you do not mind all the little part to it but the quest reward is great.

Yeah I''m on the second part of that quest and need the TS and BB parts.

Yeah since I''ma monk I can''t use the sword when I get it anyway.

Oh well, at least I can move on and start the Zek access quest tonight!

Maladen, how long did it take you to find the ore for These boots, I have killed grey gnolls (Excavators and miners) for about 2 hours with nary a drop. Also what are the stats on weakened ghoulbane, and more importantly is it Paladin only? I am closing in on this one but If I cant use it will end the quest when I finish the first SH part.

The ore took no time at all really. I just went into the first tunnel on the left and attacked the minner and excavators in those rooms and it dropped. On the flip side though it took me a while to get the hide I needed from thundering steeps. I am guessing there is just a set percent chance of it dropping/spawning and that a string of bad luck can make it take time to complete.

The weakend ghoulbane is not Paladin only. I do not have the stats currently since at work but from what I can see it is not that bad of a sword but from some people on the boards they say by the time you can use it, 32, it is nothing too special. Can not confirm but at my current level of 29 the stats look better than the sword of thunder.

If you ned any tips on getting the sword let me know just one thing will warn you only 1 person in the group can pick the sword up so make sure you have decided before hand who will pick up the sword.
