OP  3/21/12 12:36:14 PM#1

One of the most compelling features coming in Funcom's The Secret World is the way that characters will progress. In a new developer diary focused on the freeform progression system, MMORPG.com has partnered with Funcom to give our readers the first details about how exactly it will work. Read on!

The swarm of abilities makes up the Ability Wheel, and organizes each of them into helpful groups. These main groups are Ranged, Melee and Magic. They divide further into Assault Rifles, Pistols, Shotguns, Blades, Hammers, Fists, Elementalism, Chaos Magic and Blood Magic. All abilities in the wheel are tied to one of these nine weapon groups, and each weapon offers a wide array of different play styles and tactics.

Very interesting system design, I think I'll follow this a bit more than I had been planning to.

This game, surprisingly to me, is shaping up to be my number one in the anticipation department. I am a bit tempered from GW2 after the cash shop reveals, for now, and am hopeful the cash shop in TSW does not turn me off. Looks cool!

Yeah, I have to admit that with the GW2 cash shop info slowly trickling in and not looking very good so far, TSW is definitely getting more of my attention at the moment. Although it must be noted that they will also have a cash shop, so there's a potential for failure here as well. :D

The setting, the lore, the skill-system and the 3-way faction PvP puts this on eon the top of my list of anticipated MMOs.

If FC get's the performance of this game right at launch we'll have a winner.

This game surprise me more and more, it have great potential. With Archeage and GW2, The Secret World is in top three next gen mmo. Keep the good work guys.

I remember when the project started and I have to say that I can't wait. I just hope it doesn't turn out like Chronicles of the Spellborn. This is the first MMO that I truly am wanting in a long time even if I am not a fan of horror.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

Looking forward to this and more so after reading this article. Apparently not the for the 'easy' WoW-at-heart folks?

People can say what they will about Funcom's history of poor releases (and they'd be absolutely right), but it's tough to argue with the fact that their games have always turned out well with time. And on top of that, I've never seen a company make more immersive environments and worlds. Seriously looking forward to this game, and the fact that Funcom is behind it is only a plus for me.

Sounds interesting,

Since it would appear GW2 is now Pay 2 Win this has jumped to the top of my most anticipated games list :) 


Still, TSW is going to have a cash shop too, and its being made by Funcom, so im going to be cautious....

As far as I know the PvP in this game is only a side feature  :(

Please explain to me why would one want to pay a subscription for several years for them to work the bugs out, i seem to remember 2 other launches with this problem.

Current MMO dev teams = Keystone cops.A pure comedy of errors,sadly its not as intentional.

3/22/12 11:07:39 AM#17

So, to sum up,one of this "new" mmo's "most compelling features" is a skill deck..... ?

Bit fanboi'ish about this game was looking forward to it for so long but won't be playing due to the cash shop. Anyone saying 'no to GW2 but this is okay' must be mad. They have a sub and a cash shop, what can be worse than that? It's p2p2w.

I am sooo looking forward to this. It has that Supernatural/Grimm feel to it. I know people bash Funcom for AoC's launch, but don't you think they want to avoid that junk this time? I think they have a genuine gem in the making.

Well, the ability wheel looks interesting now that they fleshed it out a bit. 

 

I'm not gonna argue about the GW2 cash shop comments here...there's enough threads for that already. But I will say comparing the two games is apples and oranges.

 

What I DON'T like is the fact that TSW is keeping a "holy trinity" model. They clearly state that most serious challenges will require a tank and healer. Now, if I can swap specs on the fly in combat, that's as bad a thing. The team can play however they need to accomplish a task. But they aren't making it clear about when or how often you can swap builds.
