Man, whats up with DAOC's new website. Last time I played (months ago) they were working on it. I clicked on realm war and it says not available. Are they still working on the site?

Is there any other way to find out who has the relics currently?

Voted hybrid, this game definitely has some of the coolest hybrid classes out there with Thanes being my favorite. Then you've got other classes like Friars, Heretics, Reavers, Champions, Valewalkers, Savages, and Skalds. All of the cool classes in DAoC are hybrids, imo.

@Azzura Yep they ruined one of the best games. 6 year on-going tester here and Pendragon was home back before level bumps and copies. The good old days and the best community. DF simply rocked!

Midgard! I heard they buffed Thanes recently is that true?

Man so many memories, I loved running around with a Berzerker, chasing mages... It would be cool because they would run from me, but thats what I wanted them to do because I had amazing back styles with my axes.

Love how this game requires skill above anything else. If you knew your styles and when to use them you can beat anyone.

As far as I'm away they still haven't brought back the original AoE Hammers graphic that would display over every enemy's head, so they didn't buff them near enough as far as I'm concerned.

But, yeah, they've gotten some interesting boosts thrown their way over the years. I think their spamable nuke has close to the range of a bolt now. Plus some of their styles proc energy damage.

It never went away. In Midgard it's always hammer time.

I know they have the hammers, but once uppon a time the hammers would display over every enemy hit by the AoE. This apparently was really hard on people's systems so they changed the spell to only produce one large hammer over your primary target. Did they change it back then?

This is still the case. Here is a video about 3-4 years ago:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQEwbYn7qig

Nothing has changed since then.

Some very severe sin must have been perpetrated in a former life to have been consigned to a week in what was at its peak only a mediocre game, and now is just another past-its-best titleon maintenance mode with awful graphics and a miniscule population defying the laws of evolution.

Ah well, it'll be interesting to see what you make of it, and besides, I don't think you'd have been any better off with AO or CoH :)!

@Seffrid ^^ this guy doesn't get it, never got it, and never will get it. Oh well, his loss. DAOC may not be all it once was, but it offered things and experiences that will probably never be seen again.

I dont know how to explain the feeling you have holding the first relic ever stolen on your server in your only keep in enemy territory, and having to rush it past 100 angry Albs, and 50 greedy hibs trying to get a free lunch, while your 70 or so guildies and realm mates fight and die all around you, and do everything they can just just so you can sneak it by ...then you make it past by the skin of your teeth and port home, and then pass it off to a skald to run it at top speed the rest of the way home, thereby giving your entire realm a +dmg bonus and bragging rights forever. A plan that took days to form, hours and hours to plan, all day to execute, and the cooperation of 150+ people to get done. An amazing game, and the best game I've personally ever played. so ..yea opinions are like a**holes ..we all got em, but most of us should probly keep em to ourselves.
