The Nexus Telegraph: The basics of crafting a WildStar build

There are few things I love so much as writing a column for June 30th only to find out on the 30th that the patch I'm discussing is going live on July 1st. You know, when it's too late to change anything. I really would have been happy to have found that out before the day. But, hey, WildStar's ...

Field Journal: Picking up the pieces of Fallen Earth

I was introduced to Fallen Earth way back in the mists of time, around when I first started reading Massively. It was one of the earliest Choose My Adventures, and I was so impressed that I made my own account and joined in on the fun part of the way through. My character even made a few cameos in ...

The Road to Mordor: Ten virtues strategies for LotRO players

Virtues are never far from my mind in Lord of the Rings Online, although recently they've been more a concern as I've been dithering around with several alts in a reality TV show-type vetting of a backup character. While not very sexy in comparison to class, race, and legendary traits, virtues ar...

Path of Exile hands-on: The sequel Diablo II deserved

Like many gamers in their mid-20s, I spent countless hours in my teenage years smashing through dungeons and hunting for loot in Diablo II. The deep itemisation system made building effective characters a real challenge, and periodic ladder resets kept the loot-hunting economy fresh. Fast-forward...

The Mog Log: Final Fantasy XIV's Armoury system, yesterday and tomorrow

Final Fantasy XIV has always sold its class system on the idea that you use it more as an a la carte buffet. Abilities you learn in one class are useful in another class, and as a result, your Gladiator is a mix of several different abilities in a single package. The idea at launch was that mixin...

A roadmap to The Secret World's ability wheel

After months and months of warning us that dark days are coming, Funcom's new horror-sprinkled title, The Secret World, has finally arrived.

Champions Online rolling out Role and Stat changes

Like many MMOs, Champions Online is at its heart a game of numbers. Your character type focuses on certain stats, and you want to make those stats go higher. But sometimes the way those stats work together is a bit less than intuitive in the live game, hence some recent changes to Super Stats and...

Exploring Eberron: Getting the most from the DDO Character Planner

Many MMOs share a common factor that can either be a fun challenge or a complete frustration: the inability to respec your character. From a lore or storytelling perspective, it makes perfect sense.
