Before I start the next chapter of my WH-Online Review, I have to mention that I expanded my Warhammer Game Experience by another 30 days. Yes, it’s right: I’m a WH subscriber now.
Well, the most important question is: “Is Warhammer Online fun?” Not fully. I am PVEing, even a lot if u consider that I’m not a big fan of the WH way of PVE.
I’m level 18 now but the quests don’t get better. You just need to complete more of them to reach the next PVE lvl. The PQs are no fun cuz it is rather about grinding than telling a story. And still you rarely find people who want to party with u for PVE. But it isn’t WH’s fault that present MMO players are arrogant or solo-narrow-minded. You have to travel all 3 realms to have enough quests to get the next PVE level. PVE in WH is boring. No question. Why am I questing then? Because the revolution of open RvR is in development by Mythic. We just have to be patient. My guess is that I need to lvl much more to meet more advanced “chattish” players. By the way, did I mention it? I am in a guild now. The leader is a sympathic guy. I just wished the rest of the guild was similar to him. He is the only guy who has a conversation with me in a funny or role-playing kind of way. I’m pretty sure that some readers are wondering why I am so slow in lvling. Well, I don’t play 24/7. I chose WH cuz it seems like a nice casual game. But not too casual. It still has to offer much for the case I am in the mood for a long adventure.
For the critical readers among u: I admit it. I tried some other games during my Warhammer Experience. U won! WH isn’t perfect. So what! Pirates of the Burning Sea is a promising game but man, the fighting is very tiring. The rest feels awesome. Hm…..except the quest marking. That really su***. Why am I not transferring to PotBS then? As mentioned before, the ship fighting is bad. No exaggerating, it reminds me on EVE online pretty much. Quite lame.
Back to Warhammer. PVP is great. The best thing is that it gets better and better. Especially the open RVR is the best PVP u can imagine. U just take any enemy u see and try your best. From all other the server, players of your side are coming and join the big sieges. It is amazing how much fun u can have although u are not even close to max lvl. In most games u have to be high lvl if u want any PVP at all. Having fun instantly is what I always loved about GW.
If I keep up this speed, I become 40 before 2010! :P
My temporary goal is getting the horse mount at lvl 20. Just 2 more lvls.
I created some other chars. Usually, that is a sign that u are beginning to get bored. Well, time will tell.
