    Character max is 10 right now i believe, but it's only a 4 day trial. Leveling is split into 5 ranks. (Level 1, Level 1 rank 1, Level 1 rank 2, etc.) You gain action points each rank to improve your character.

    It takes abit of getting used to, but after a while, it just flows natural. Durring Stress Test 2, in mid December, got my paladin to 3 in 1 day. Pally, Rogue, Mage and Cleric own in the same group.

    I rolled a bard. I'm doing the solo quests. Once the solo quests stop, and I'm forced to group... I'll probably stop. I just wanted to see the game.

    My name's Paxtor. I'm on the Jorasco server. I doubt I'll be on it much, honestly. =)

    Just wanted to see what it was like as well. Its already down for login problems, but I guess I shouldnt be to surprised. Kinda reminds me of Anarchy Online Graphics with a little World of Warcraft gameplay mixed in. Really dont think its gonna be worth buying unless your just burnt out on all the other MMO's and want to try something different.

    I'm actually looking forward to it, being the D&D freak i am (I got to meet Gary Gygax[D&D's co-creator]. Smoked cigs with him on the roof of the Midwest Airlines Center here in Milwaukee, durring Gamefest 2004, and talk to him about the downfall of D&D, and how 3rd ed sucks compared to 1st and 2nd ed. But that's besides the point).
    Yes DDO doesn't have the perfect gameplay, but I'm ok with that. It's the first MMO to integrate voice chat, for party members. Teamspeak / Ventrilo is still necessary for guilds, but for random pickup parties, you can use the integrated voice chat. I used it durring Stress Test 2, it's really nice, and crisp. Also, they released a press statement that both Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson (both creators of D&D) will be doing DM Text voices for the dungeons.
    For those of you that are in the demo, roll up a character on Wayfarer, and we'll paint the town red!!!!! IGN: Crovus, Halfling Rogue, Wayfarer

    Played this game for a while in Alpha quit, came back for a short time. Attended a focus group at which we were able to comment and give feedback directly to the devs. Got bored of the game shortly after.

    Paxil got reduced to 0 strength and fell over helpless. I couldn't even log out, because I was too weak. So a Turbine rep told me to type /death to commit suicide. All day and only 3k into the 10k I need to level to level 2. I dunno if I like this game, honestly.

  19. #19

    ...Paxil? Youre dead

  20. #20

    I'm sorry, Paxtor. But I was thinking about you! *wink wink*

    Naw, I made up that character years go. Sorry bud.
