if your basic cookie cutter is a 3d diablo dungeon crawler type game with a robust dungeon creator than sure

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall.

Cookie cutter? No. Neverwinter does too many things different than, say, WOW or LOTRO. Sorry I am a bit tired to write all the details why atm. ^^;

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

Well reason i asked is 50% of the reviews say it is and 50% say its not. I like mixed reviews but i havent had the chance to try this out yet so kind of wondering is all. Im very picky on my mmorpgs why im trying to read and ask as many questions as possible :)

It's as many things a matter of perspective. For some game X is a WOW clone, for others not.

Mostly ever negative player reviews I've seen never got past the very first few levels of the game, seems hardly noteworthy. I found Spellplague story rather fun, the Orc Skirmishes were also fun to play with random party queue. If a review you have read hasn't even played til level 20 I'd stop reading it.

I'm really not thrilled with the cash shop however, yeah they give out diamonds...but in very small amounts......unfortunately seems like Neverwinter is going to make you spend cash. Say what you will about Perfect World, but I've played many of their games without feeling the need to spend cash, but Neverwinter seems to break that idea for me.

Hopefully it will change.....

I Played till 25 Thief this weekend. I enjoyed the game for what I was expecting since I never played DnD.  I liked some of the ideas foundry had to offer. The rogue class was decently fun and Once it started getting a lot of feats it really started to change into how you wanted to play it. I didn't like only having 3 abilities though kinda felt locked in and didn't like it as much.  Animations were kinda annoying also. I was angry with the dodge system since it wasn't as responsive as GW2's dodging.

 

overall  generiously 7/10

Screw leveling games, give me something with "End game" at the beginning of the game.

If they make their MMO completely free of the 'need' to spend any cash how do you expet them to make any profits? these people are not some machines but actual human beings like us who need money to survive in real world.

I mean in that sense of thinking, why not just charge a subscription....they have to make money right?!

Anyways my biggest gripe wasn't having a cash shop, but the pricing for one mount I saw was 4000 zen....which zen to dollars is $40.00.......for a mount!?!

I really doubt that. If the current marke trend is to go by, MMOS with cash shop tend to generate more profits. I would say they are crazy to not make 50 bucks compulsory to play NW which is standard MMO release price, but maybe they are just confident that people will spend 20 and 50 bucks on founder packs regardless.

heh I didnt even know about the identify scrolls costing diamonds now , so they take a mediocre game and require you to use the cash shop or farm scrolls over and over? Perfect World at its finest I see already , thanks for the info I will not be wasting my time with this on harddrive space anymore. Cryptic has always been a sorry studio anyway on the  verge of bankruptcy when PW bought them out , I didnt expect much from that sort of planning and designers anyways but selling stuff needed in game is beyond stupid when there are other successful free to play games out there making a ton of money , selling convience items and fluff.

I understand the trend of the market, and they technically don't force you to spend. It's the nuisance of things you would expect to be available for free to play that are not (as mentioned I.D. Scrolls) I even saw chest keys in the cash shop.

I get more than enough scrolls just playing the game. Unless they change the drop rate, this is a non-issue.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

I totally agree with the OP.  The caster classes (since they are rooted when attacking) just have to spam their attacks and stand toe to toe with foes, there is no other way to do it. You can't kite and you can't stop the mobs from being on you nearly instantly, so the combat evolves into a rush to kill before your hp runs out.

Now maybe the melee classes are different, but I played the cleric and though it was very easy given I can self heal, the combat tactics dictated by the game mechanics mean you just stand there and click your left and right mouse button with an occassional keybind attack.  This will get old very very fast for players who like to play casters and use their minds a bit.

There is basically no resource to manage so the optimal play is to click as fast as you can (or just hold the button down) but regardless, you have no downside to attacking at anytime.  If you had a mana bar to manage there would be some strategy in your timing of attacks and whatnot, but with only a cooldown on a couple abilities and action points to fill up a giant dice before you can use another big ability, spamming your at will powers constantly is the way the game is meant to be played.  Very unfortunate.

I personally detest kiting in games, it offers little to no skill.  In NWO its about proper skill use and dodging outt at the msot opportune time.  You wil ltake damage and its designed with this in mind as evident by the liberal use of potion chugging.  Very reminescent of a Diablo styled ARPG but with WASD movement and 3rd person perspective.  The 2 things I wish all ARPG's used and the reason why I do not like games like Diablo or Path of Exile.  Hate top down isometric view and click to move systems, totally immersive breaking!!!!

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

same for me i hate click to move and the isometric view.. probably only reason i can't get into games like TL2 and PoE..

also you can still offer non rooted ranged classes and not allow them to kite its pretty easy. You just greatly decrease movement speed while casting and/or give melee more options to close gaps if they don't have them already.

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

I totally agree with the OP.  The caster classes (since they are rooted when attacking) just have to spam their attacks and stand toe to toe with foes, there is no other way to do it. You can't kite and you can't stop the mobs from being on you nearly instantly, so the combat evolves into a rush to kill before your hp runs out.

Now maybe the melee classes are different, but I played the cleric and though it was very easy given I can self heal, the combat tactics dictated by the game mechanics mean you just stand there and click your left and right mouse button with an occassional keybind attack.  This will get old very very fast for players who like to play casters and use their minds a bit.

There is basically no resource to manage so the optimal play is to click as fast as you can (or just hold the button down) but regardless, you have no downside to attacking at anytime.  If you had a mana bar to manage there would be some strategy in your timing of attacks and whatnot, but with only a cooldown on a couple abilities and action points to fill up a giant dice before you can use another big ability, spamming your at will powers constantly is the way the game is meant to be played.  Very unfortunate.

oO! Why would you stand there toe to toe and spam an ability with a wizard or cleric? Wizard has a lot of knockback and slowed abilities. The cleric has some nice CC. Not only that but both have some nice evade abilities. Slide and Teleport which you can use often enough. 

 

I couldn't keep mobs away 100% of the time but I shouldn't be able to. I was however able to keep them at a distance the majority of the fight with both my cleric and my wizard. 

Your daily, encouters, mobility, and second at will abilitiy do a great deal to helping keep mobs at range. Why not use them?

If you are sitting there spamming your first at will of course you are going to go toe to toe with enemies because you have just failed to understand how the class works. 

 

The click as fast as you can is another dumb thing to do. Clicking faster doesn't do anything, just hold the button down. Also it's an at will ability so of course theres no resource to manage. There however are plenty of resources to manage such as your daily, your stamina, and your overcharge (Completely forgot what this was called so I simply call it overcharge).

 

If you waste your daily on a pack of grunts and end up at the boss fight with nada built up, well your at a disadvantage. If you waste those dodges just messing around when those mobs get up close and personally you are at a disadvantage. If you are on your cleric and you simply spam heals for no reason you are at a disadvantage (They build up over time so you can cast multiple times before the ability goes on a cooldown). 

Theres a good number of resources to manage. So again, you are wrong. 

 

Doing nothing but spamming your at wills is NOT how the game is meant to be played. People doing that are going to come to the forums and complain about how mobs are always in their face, how theres no resource to manage, and that all they do is spam at wills... oh look, theres one now! 

 

Heres some advice if you play again when you encounter multiple mobs on your Wizard. 

1) If there is a boss/mini boss, hit him with the levitate ability. 

2) Throw your friggin ice cicle at another, prefferably the ranged attack first. 

3) The others should be close by now so let them start to swing then evade. 

4) Use your ice beam to freeze and finish off one that got close. 

5) Boss and last mob should be on you at this point. Use your daily to damage and knock them back. 

6) Finish off the little guy if he's still alive with your magic missles. 

7) If its a mini boss he should almost be dead so magic missle, icicle, evade, w/e. 

8) etc. 

 

Notice how I didn't say stand there and spam magic missle?

Make sure that your firewall is set up to allow Neverwinter through.

Crash crash crash.

 

odd not a single crash here

I am having the same problem, I crashed so much yesterday that I didn't even bother playing today.  I'm not good enough on the driver/software end to really track down the problem.  I just know I have typed in a ton of the messages that the cryptic crash  compiler (or whatever it is called) asks for.  I'm assuming the game just doesn't like something on my computer because it isn't happening to everyone.

Hmm.  That's a bit different than mine.  I always crash when doing something.  Usually zoning, but also when I go to sell or buy I'm pretty much guaranteed to crash.  I never crash just running around.
