My Thoughts Exactly: Wrath of Heroes


     War: Wrath of Heroes looks amazing. It is basically a simplified scenario with three factions. You can choose which class you want to play which will feature the classes in WAR already. The scenario maps will be from the actual game. In my mind, War: WoH will serve as a marketing tool for War: AoC, one of the first in a long time. This game will still have a player base but it will lead players in the direction to our MMO, that needs players badly. I'm not sure if this is going to be more like DotA or revamped scenarios, but I am ready to try the beta. You can sign up yourself here.

     Lately, In WAR, I have been playing on my Marauder who is now level 25 renown rank 32. In tier 2 he is able to do 1v2 and sometimes 1v3! In tier 3 he is a viable asset with heals, otherwise I survive for short amounts of time. I have been switching back and forth from t2 to t3 while I still have the chance. I am a bit worried about my renown rank because it is a bit low for my level. Maybe this is because I have been doing random quests and Public Quests.
     Trippedoutfish and I have been exploring PQs and finding amazing Public Quest loot for appearance gear. You can view this appearance gear and how to get it on my next post. We also finished a Quest to unlock the Crimson Cloak for Destruction classes. You can view the video here or the Order Crimson Cloak Video Tutorial here. The video was set to 15 FPS so its a bit laggy, and also shows trippy playing and talking, which is pretty funny. You might have to scroll through the PQ's on the video to find the quests which are in chapter 11 Chaos, Talabecland.

Video Coming Soon - Keep Sieges

     Hey guys, recently we finished up creating a video tutorial on keep sieges. It should be posted tomorrow so be on the lookout for that. It will include a full review on how to run a warband and take a keep most effectively.  

Still playing my Maruader: Judjent, level 23 rr 30 on Gorfang. Message me in game for some RvR action!

Poll: Which tier is most enjoyable?


Tier 1: 7 (25%)
Tier 2: 7 (25%)
Tier 3: 6 (21%)
Tier 4: 7 (25%)
All are equal: 1 (3%)

Looks like all the tiers are equally enjoyable... Although it seems no one agrees with that!
Leave a comment with your ideas for a poll in the comments section.

Edit: Video is being reuploaded to my new Youtube Channel. Expect it up in February 2012.

Video Tutorial: Pelt of the Dark Young Cloak

     I have been extremely busy lately but I still find the time to play my Marauder in tier 2 on Gorfang (you can check him out on my Toons page). I had been using the Shawl of Spring since level 8 and I was ready for a new cape. As a level 21 rr 27 Marauder, I traveled to Avelorn in search of the mob that would unlock a  cloak. The mob is named Khurraak Might-Horns and is a normal level 26. He is sometimes accompanied by another random level 26. This tome unlock should be available to all players level 20+. The mob is a running beastman that spawns on the path just south of the Order Chapter 12 High Elf quest hub. Before finding the mob, I was killed three times by a pesky level 55 Order guard that seemed to spot me from extremely far away. He would 2 shot me and then I would re-spawn on the other side of the map; this would force me to run back because there was no flight master. Below is a quick tutorial video:

Killing Trolls - Public Quests

Die troll!
     Public Quests have become all but useful in the current version of WAR, as we all know. This saddens me, but I understand why EA is doing it. They need to make all their players go into the RvR areas so there is constant PvP action. I agree with this, but I still enjoy doing Public Quests with my guild. There are still are a few reasons on why you should look into doing a couple Public Quests:
  1. Chapter 5 Public Quests give blue and green shoulders for level 10 and 11 respectively; perfect for twinks or players trying to get an edge up in Tier 1. Not to mention shoulder armor looks badass!
  2. Public Quests have their own unique looking gear for Advance Influence rewards. Stand out from the crowd and look epic.
  3. Farm Repairable items. Certain PQ mobs have really high drop chances for repairable items. These items can be equipped by any class or sold quickly for hefty amounts of gold.
  4. Gain experience, influence, money, talisman, crafting materials, and gear.
  5. Breaks up the Renown grind, but you still get renown from the zone flips!

40 Black Orc - Moggahlub (Gorfang)
     On my 19 Marauder I have been doing more Public Quests than usual. Instead of farming rats in Ostland, why not farm Public Quests? We decided to head to Chapter 8 and 9 in Troll Country. I really enjoyed doing some solid PvE content with my guild. Many of these PQ's I have never completed before and didn't realize how fun Public Quests can still be. I wish the gear from the influence and drop rewards were better so I could actually use them but RvR armor remains on top.
