Vanguard Saga of Heroes?
« on: February 07, 2007, 07:05:34 AM »
Just picked this game up last night, since I already have a Station Pass, it's not costing me anything more monthly to play.
Seems like it might be a very good game, much more 'hardcore' than the recent games like WoW and Lord of the Rings. But right now it's a crash happy fool (still first week of retail)

If you already have it, where are you playing?
If you don't, hold off a month or so and give it a try. Reminds me a bit of Asherons Call back in the day, with a good measure of EQ2 thrown in as well. Asherons Call was always my favorite of MMOs so I am (going to be hoprfully when it runs consistently) digging it.
Grapes? I hate grapes, I can't stand grapes. I loathe grapes. All kinds of grapes. I hate green grapes and I hate purple grapes. I hate grapes with seeds, I hate grapes without seeds. I hate them peeled and nonpeeled. I hate them in bunches, one at a time and in small groups of twos and threes.

I don't play MMORPGs, but I do love RPGs.  I'm currenty going through Dragon Quest: The Journey of the Cursed King.  And Rogue Galaxy looks pretty decent, so I think that'll be my next purchase.

i'm really enjoying it.  i loved the old days of everquest and this one feels like that.  i have had a few crashes but nothing that makes me want to quit and come back in a few months, i'll just put up with minor annoyances and keep playing.  i'm on thunderaxe by the way.

I've been stung by this very bizzarre (John Byner) bug that just keeps booting me back the character select screen, which then is populated by my guy and this very generic human guy with white hair and clothes. It seems that with the patch last night, the problem may be fixed on mine, but there are still a ton of guys on the forums there that are still having the same problem. I think this game is going to be very good once it's lined out a bit better.

i keep seeing shouts of people that have that character bug but i havent experienced it (yet) and none of the friends i play with have had it happen either.  those are always the toughest bugs to track down because you cant set up a situation where you can force it to happen.  i started everquest 1 about 2 or 3 months after it started and it still had some bugs but nothing that caused major problems with playing.  i think in a month, this game should have all of those things taken care of and then patches will be mostly new content and UI tweakes.  i'll probably be playing it for at least a couple years.

to Sigil's credit, they had my problem with that fixed within 24 hours of me getting it. I have heard that those fixes did not fix everyone that was having that problem, but I give them more credit than they get on their 'official forum' anyway.
Now still have to figure when I can get the time to play this (as well as SWG I have been playing with Tarantulas)

sigh

Do they have corpse runs ala the days of the original EQ? Did Sigil already perform a nerf on XP??

I went back to EQ2 PvP this past weekend as I have some playtime to work with again. If I dive into another MMO, it will more than likely be Warhammer Online in fall.

they do have corpse runs but they are, in a way, optional.  you can always pay a little bit of cash to have the corpse brought to you at the alter things that you spawn at when you die.  the advantage to going and retreiving your corpse is that you get back a little of the exp that you lost when you died.  the amount you lose also has to do with what you died from.  if you died by being attacked by a creature that you had no possible chance of beating, you lose very little exp.  not sure about an xp nerf, i havent noticed anything change.
