It's decent, but my Laptop just isn't up to the task and I'm not up to click-click-die anymore. Have fun you all!

Yeah. ToS was supposed to be nerfed to the ground with 1.05, and when it came out they still were very damn solid.

After playing Aion over the weekend I forgot to start playing AOC again.  Are we still on Agony?  Assassins look shiny.

I am on the carebear server. Thought about rolling up on the pvp server and there's not really any attraction. /Maybe/ the rp-pvp, but meh.

Is it bad that I just keep re-rolling characters and taking them from 1-20?  I leveled a character to like 33 but everything gets kind of blah after tortage.

I tried my bear shaman again and I just couldn't get into it, so I'd have to say my experience is that there weren't signfiicantly improved.  Wasn't able to do much damage.  Wasn't able to heal very well.  Didn't seem to have significant buffs or CC.  Char was mid/late-20s, so maybe it picks up later.

They are still refusing to add the one  patch note that I think has been a gross oversight since initial release:

* Added a new endurance bar for all classes. The Endurance Bar is used for sprinting only.

Ultimately there are two issues that are hindering me from having a good time with AoC. 

First, the /who system.  I can't find anyone or any guild names when I search.  Is it because they're not online?  Or are the window functions broken?  Are the stars aligned properly?  I don't know, because it's not documented properly.  And it certainly isn't intuitive. 

Second, I don't want to play without knowing that there will still be people playing in a month.  The whole damn game is instanced, why did they need to have servers?  It would have been a lot cooler to use an instancing system like Guild Wars so I can flip servers if one of the F13 guilds fold.  Granted, not many people play like we do.  But it would have been nice so I don't have to go through Tortage AGAIN.

Yeah.  AoC would really benefit from one world.  The only downside to instancing it like Guild Wars is that GW's hubs can handle a lot more people at once, and the world is huge so people are spread out.

Hahahaha!  I'm really good at this!
