OP  11/21/12 5:24:34 PM#1

The Wizardry Online Wikia site has been updated with tons of new information about classes in the game as well as new information about the chat system that will be featured. The new details will emerge when the site is officially updated at 3 pm PDT/6 pm EDT.

Difficulty: Easy

Survivability: High

Play Style: Tank and/or Melee DPS

Available Alignments: Lawful, Neutral, Chaotic

Ability Requirements: STR 8

Check out the Wizardry Online Wiki.

When you die you have 12 minutes to get to a Guardian statue to rezz before you turn to Ash, when you get there it has a percentage of success, for you soul level( which is about your first 7-7 levels ) you have an automatic 100% success rate, afterwards the percentage is based on how long it took you to get to the statue and a few other factors but you can sacrifice items in your inventory to increase the chance of success up to 100%, if you fail to rezz you are turned to Ash and then can still try again, if you fail a second time you are lost and thats perma death. Its really not as unforgiving of a rezz system as people make it out to seem, especially with the 100% rate for the first while to give you time to learn the ropes and figure out how to not die, but at the same time still having the hardcore aspect and chances of losing it all( Your character level and Soul level are different though, and your Soul stuff carrys over to your next made character, so you dont lose everything that you have banked or your progress in the storyline ).

Mess with the best, Die like the rest

Thats not even the worst part...

 

When you level you can actually lose stats... (You gain 1 point of STR, you lose 1 point of VIT) leveling is a TOTAL RNG depending upon your roll of the (figurative) dice you can have better or worse stats of another character of equal level.

 

I mean hell I played the original Wizardry games back in my C64 days, they were very unforgiving and you had to carfully plan parties etc. But when you try to impliment a system like this in an MMO with PvP etc. well it just doesn't fly. 

 

Losing stats for progressing.. never a good thing.

What are your other Hobbies?

That's how the wizardry series has always been but It usually depends on the age of the character.

the game tut is really irrtiating  it takes to long to get to the meat and the character models are awful.

the one thing that needs fixing asap is the game lighting its over the top and every time i revive i have to remeber to look away from my screen strong flashing bright lights are a no no

man i have to say i really like that idea because its  a true rpg idea. like if you have someone in your party whos a old blind mage.  the old blind mage would have  low accuracy, low vit, but in return he has high wisdom and can cast  the most powerful spells much earlyer than other mages.

 

but for an mmo i don't think it works but consideirng how this game works who knows its to early to tell if it will be accepted or patched out

I love that this game already.

All the gamer types I hate seeing in MMOs just complain out of fear, and that's hopefully a good sign that they'll stay away from it completely.

People still need to get used to change, the permadeath is not new, but it makes the game way more interesting. Old skool mmo's used to be like that all the time.

All commercial mmo's have been dumbed down to 1-3 tab target button smashing, even a 5 year old can beat the hardes bosses.

Getting penalties for playing bad, or choosing bad teams makes you put more effort into it and makes pvp much more interesting.

 
I'm still waiting for my beta key though, so can't say anything about the game itself, love the concept though !

Is anyone else pissed that they turned one of  the greatest roleplaying games ever written in software into cheap anime crap.

Furthermore, they managed to make the easiest things completely unnecessary complicated with the probably worst UI I've ever seen. And while people ride on the permadeath feature (which is perfectly fine to me, also the "hard" attribute, nothing wrong with that) they just forget that a game has to be fun in the first place. This is no fun rather than a big headache. What a wasted opportunity...

The ui is fine for me, in fact this is like any other game out there. The game is fun too, maibe you dont like it but i do and many people do too so, this is a matter of opinion.

The only thing who bother me is the animations, they are horrible, but that no game breaker for me.

That's how the wizardry series has always been but It usually depends on the age of the character.

 

I am well aware of how the single player variants were, as I played (and still own) every one of them. While yes Wizardry was a very harsh world back then it became more forgiving especially 7 and 8.

 

If we want to talk about Wizardry at it's core this is a very poor interpritation of probably one of the greatest SRPG franchises. Where are my Ninja's Samaurai, Psionosicts? Where are my  Dracon, Felpurr, and Rawulf among others... Instead I have some friggin anime pikachu style race and a few of the standard races for the original.

 

This is just some bastardized asian misinterpretation by a few hacks who probably purchased the rights to the franchise at a fire sale. What a shame...

That's only because the western fans of Wizardry sold it out to play more forgiving sprpgs like The Bard's Tale, Ultima and Might & Magic. Truth be told the japanese fans are the only reason we are still talking about Wizardry to this day. Sir-Tech made 9 Wizardry games with the last being in 2001.  The japanese: 38 with the last one being what you are bashing now. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. At least it's closer to the spirit of Wizardry than how some other IPs end up becoming in the hands of their original creators...

@Kalafax Dont bullshit man, you have no idea how it works.  Its 12 hours, not twelve minutes.

Anyway, this wiki article is most assuredly a breach of NDA.
