are returning to EverQuest II; Innoruuk heard to exclaim “Ahh, fu...”. Which is
inevitable, when you think about it. There seems to be a certain lack of
raiding excitement, of epicness, when there are no
supernatural beings of truly cosmic power to kill and take their things. I only
wish some other angles of the “OMG, Norrath is blown up, pure unadulterated
madness with things mixed up, Gods nowhere to be seen, civilizations rising and
falling, cats loving gnolls having moved on from dogs, etc” storyline would
have been explored before this happened. There was some potential there.

reply to Arthur’s question of “Anyone care to guess what type of pvp
system they can bolt on to LOTRO at such short notice?” – considering that the
playable races are Humans, Elves, Dwarves and Hobbits, I’m going to go bet on it
being Arena-type PvP. It’ll effectively be a place/building that can control
who fights whom, and that offers a backstory of “honor” rather than LOTRO PvP being an
offering of an adventure zone where you can gank Leg0lass for taking your
15-to-1 odds if anyone wants in on the action. “Not having enough time to
implement an arena and resorting to a slapped on /duelling system” makes up the

That's the word/rumor/whathaveyou coming from a post

Already nervously twitching from thoughts of, to
use a technical term, the long-arse rep grind, players began to look for ways
to speed up their race to exalted. They found it rather conveniently and easily
in the form of an exploit.
I did it last night (as did half the raiding guilds on my
server, lol). I'm usually not very fond of sploits, but on this one I said fuck
that and fuck Blizzard. It's so worth it! Took us a while to figure out all the
finer points, but those 4 hours spent in Scholo beat the shit out of 100+ hours
of noxious glade farming.
We messed around with thorns and retribution aura, don't do it. It doesn't tag
the illusions and only kills Jandice faster. While Drillborer Disk does damage
to them, it doesn't seem to tag them either. It has to be a shield with a
You also have to block their attacks to have the shield spike do damage, so you
have to face them. Wear as much +block as you can, it's what gets you rep. I'm
not 100% sure but it seems like shield block (skill) doesn't wear off right
away. She spawns the illusion, they usually walk around for a few secons, I hit
BS then shield block, they all attack at once and my SCT just spams block

Bring lots of spiked shields! My epic shields broke after ~30 mins, a green one
after ~20 mins. When all 3 shields were broken, my armor was at ~40%. Jandice
was at 49%. I think you can get all 21k rep in one session if you bring 6-7
shields or a few shields and repair bots. Might have to evade bug Jandice
towards the end though. Probably better to do it in 2 sessions.
If you bring a 5th person that can't heal or decurse, it's probably best if you
have him hit one of the illusions on every cycle. Healer and decurser get rep
from healing and decursing, the banish bait gets rep for being banished, but
say a hunter just standing there doesn't seem to get any rep (if he's not
BTW this is all over the place now, so it'll probably be fixed very soon.
And indeed it was. A hotfix soon followed.
For those of you that were busy doing something else, like
saving kittens from burning buildings or rescuing orphans from trees, I’d
suggest starting your
tractor now. Or trying your hand at Dire Maul. At least we know that takes
ages to fix.
Of note; * Chris McKibbin, Co-Founder and President of Perpetual Entertainment, daring to call the SOE area the "Mythic booth". * Grant "Rogue_5" McDaniel, Producer of Star Wars: Galaxies, constantly checking over his shoulder in case jaded crafters and other pre-NGE players decide to zerg him. * I'll be damned if that comic creator doesn't at least look interesting.

Aimed at new MMO players as well as existing ones, the PlayNC
portal invites players to try its games by putting them at an
irresistible price -- $0.
The money, of course, lies in areas like micropayments -- while a
great portion of each game is free, features like new items or
character slots will come at a price. Some games may only offer
lower-level gameplay for free, meaning that players are enticed into
purchasing the game once they have become invested in a character. Two
games from the PlayNC portal were playable at E3: Dungeon Runners and
Rather than taking on a more predictable route, the Squig Herder has
a unique method of creating and controlling the ravenous balls of meat
that are Warhammer's Squigs.
When the herder creates a Squig, the
Squig is so ungrateful that he actually eats his master. From inside
the Squig's stomach, the herder can now poke and prod the Squig's brain
to control his actions. For the most part this will involve a lot of
jumping around and biting things. There area few specialized Squigs
however; the battle ball Squig will roll over its opponents American
Gladiator style. Once a Squig is killed, he spits out the poor herder
who is then free to carry on as usual.
I'm feeling a strange burning sensation between my legs.
