It was great to get into the guild last night and chat with folks, even if I didn't get a chance to group due to prior obligations making me leave early. I really look forward to playing with y'all again!

And I want to give a big shoutout to Rubi for being so wonderful and patient. She was just getting flooded with tells there at the beginning but she was always very polite and nice to people. :-D

I actually skipped the first night because I thought it might be chaos and I didn't want to add to it. =)

I'd love to join you guys with my level 4 toon on Cannith once you get to that level.

I was honestly 2 seconds too late for the guild photo, but it was tons of fun. I had a great group. Can't wait for next week!

Had a blast. But I had some technical difficulties and left the guy in the party, Storm, hanging towards the end as I wrangled my PC into submission.
But it was still fun! I rolled a new class that I hadn't tried before.

Got a bit of a late start last night...I rolled a new toon to join up, but shortly after I actually got in game, Rubialina logged out. Got you on my friends list, ill make sure to get in touch next time for a guild invite.

Had a really good time last night once I actually got into the game (I think everyone showing up on Cannith's Korthos suddenly slowed down the instance server). I'm used to soloing or two-manning it, both of which get old sort of quickly but this should help for when I'm by myself. Looking forward to seeing everyone next week, though I might reroll as a halfling instead of a human.

That was great fun =)

I think we quadrupled the population of Korthos swarming on the place like we did!

I'd like to give a huge shoutout to Rubi as well.
She must have been absolutely swamped with tells and guild chat, yet she made sure that each and every person knew what was happening and that they felt at home and looked-after. She's a real star.

(I thought her story about inviting a non-Massively reader to the guild was hilarious - Rubi you need to retell that one here!)

I'd also like to say hi to the group I ended up in. You guys were extremely patient and helpful - couldn't have gotten a better bunch of lovely people if I'd tried. And thanks for the scribing mats! =)

I'm really looking forward to us all meeting up again for the next stage of our adventure.
Great stuff and many thanks.

This sounds great, too bad that the Massively Wednesday sessions 9pm are at a time I am deep asleep (EU here). But maybe I will reroll on that server anyway; some EU players in the guild?

We were supposed to stop at level 2 and just outside of Korthos? Ooops. I somehow ended up in a group that was about half non-Massively, clicked the chat tab over to "party" (thereby missing what was going in in /guild), and ended up burning through the entire island on Elite, hitting level 3 in the process.

Oh well, it was a good time anyway, and I've made something like half a dozen level 2 characters already, so I shouldn't have trouble catching back up on a new character before next week.

Matt6: Just go ahead and create a character on the Cannith server, and add Syp and Rubialina to your friends list so you can get them to add you to the guild when they're on.

Also be on the lookout for anyone in the guild named 'OnedAwesome' hanging around Korthos.

=)

While I want to actually enjoy the MMO, I feel let down by spellcaster classes. Why should I have to actually manage spells? Not to mention that if I run out of "Spell Points" that I am completely useless in any combat situation without a rest location! Maybe I haven't reach a high enough level for extra magic skills but it felt too wonky coming from other MMOs where mana/magic/MP/wtfevar regenerates normally giving combat for spellcasters fluidity. Another thing, EVERYONE IS A MELEE CLASS. This is a shame because it makes the triangle of Tank - Healer - DPS redundant because it's 80% Tank, 10% DPS and 10% Healer. While yes you can have cross classes, it doesn't work well because you lack in other areas as it should according to DnD. Either they find a way to streamline spell casters more or I feel that many people won't play due to much frustration on unable to be their class.

"Why should I have to actually manage spells?" Because if casters in this game could go on forever just by stopping on their own for a minute, they'd be insanely overpowered. I hated it at first too, coming from WoW where all I had to do was hit a switch and keep fighting, which made the bar top itself off.

I play a heal/buff/crowd controller (only because I'm a dork and half the time I forget I can make things explode in a cloud of sparkles or torture them mercilessly by spell-cutting them to pieces), but my main is almost 7, and I rarely run out of mana now because I understand my class more and don't blow every spell in my repertoire (and there's a *lot* of them) at the drop of a hat. Me and my bf were 2manning elite quests last night and were only in danger once when some fast elite dip got lucky and kept critting us both 3-4 times in a row, but I never dropped below 30% of my sp bar healing us or using big crowd control spells.
