It's summer here in the south of France, and everyone is busy trying to spend their 2 months of vacation, either trying to avoid the tourists or having fun being one themselves. Age of Conan did a wonderful job at getting a lot of people outdoors this summer, as the Funcom team works diligently to provide a PVP system: one that was promised in June but might be here by the end of the year. Anyway, that failure of a game is behind most of us PVP addicts, and we turn our autumn sights to none other than Warhammer Online.

I've been playing beta. For a very short time, I had thought to perhaps make some videos and some screenshots and write little witty guides and playing experiences for everyone. However, I quickly let that go because I knew other people would do it, and do it better. So, the least I can do is bring my faithful reader(s) a few links with some good stuff so they can read about Warhammer and all of it's glory. The questions most people are asking themselves now are: what faction should I play? What class should I play? What is my life becoming when I obsesse over games like this? Alas, these should help answer at least the first two:

Of course Keen of Keen and Graev's blog, being on the Mythic payroll, has done an excellent series of videos, screenshots, and coherent ramblings:

WAR Beta Movies and Screenshots

Keen's not-quite-sober Beta Impressions, Part 1 (of 78,000)

Good stuff, my boy! Keep 'em coming. Change your damn guild name though or at least go with something a bit more masculine like the "Blue Oyster Club". (name the movie!)

Not to be outdone by simple college students, Massively, in their attempt to have 2000 blog posts on the same topic, have done a series of quasi-article things on the Classes of WAR.

Destruction (I'm evvvill! *emo sob*)

Healing Classes for emo Destruction

Melee Classes for Destruction

Tank Classes for Destruction

And Order (Legolas to the rescue!)

Ranged DPS Classes for Order

The missing ... 4 guides will be coming soon I suppose. Check here if I haven't updated this post yet.

And of course no Warhammer news can be complete without The Greenskin!

Beta Thoughts Part 2

Greenskins in the Beta

Post NDA writeup

That's it! Will add some more if I find them worthy.
