This isn't a troll tread at all.

I wrote that I'm looking for classic tank with poor dps and the best defensive skills. 


I also remember something like The Temple Knight class in Lineage 2 (old chronicles , dunno about the new ones), but this isn't the same game anymore.


Thank you for all your responses.


I think I'll give it a try with LoTRO or EQ2 (as f2p can be a free trial) and I'll also check  FF XIV: ARR later.

If I don't like it I'll give it a try with another mmo's mentioned by you.




EQ2 is a great choice.  While there are 4 very classic tanks (Paladin, Shadowknight, Berserker and Guardian), the most defensive "classic-style" of them is the Guardian. 

The sad thing is that it's quite hard experience the real EQ2 game at lower level (or anything other than cap really).   If it's your first time in EQ2, i suggest the following:


1.  Just play the game at low level to like level 25.  This will be totally solo and can be done in a day or a month, depending on your pace.

2.  Once you've done that, roll the same character as a "heroic" - which is level 90.  This generally costs money, but you can TRIAL it for free (you just won't be able to level beyond 91).  But at 90, you'll have your full complement of skills, realistic equipment and much better idea of how the class REALLY plays.  Although groups may still be difficult to come by.

3.  At this point you'll know if you like the game / class.  If you do, either buy the latest expac (includes others) and pay for the heroic character or just go back to playing your level 30 or whatever.  There is lots of great content in EQ2 - at all levels - just not much grouping at low levels (but tons at cap).


Feel free to message Pantheya on Crushbone if you have general game questions.

One of my favourite EQ2 memories is killing Byzola on the last day before the next expac.  Was great to actually get the boss down!    Finally clearing Plane of War was pretty epic too.

Defiance got a bit better this year with all the characters getting a bit more edge.  I'm really glad they finally killed off Tommy (was that the deputy's name?) he was the lamest character in the show and had absolutely no personality.  I hope the mayor is next, despite the show trying to have her go dark, the actress just isn't selling it.


I think Defiance's problem (as a show) is that it doesn't know what it wants to be.  First season it tried to be some kind of very safe, very mainstream piece of crap like Stargate and those types of cheaply produced crappy shows with "all good" heroes and predictable stories.   Second season they decided to go much darker, but they didn't really go all the way with it, since at the end of the day (almost) everything turns out well and the good guys still save the day and win.  


They should focus less on the overall "mythology" and just run it like a sci-fi version of Walking Dead meets Mad Max.   They have tons of interesting characters and lots of potentially interesting interaction among them.  They don't need all this mythology bull.  

surely between EVE, Elite and SC everyone will have their space-game needs fulfilled without this....

uld you pay to skip ahead in Skyrim? 

Would you pay to skip levels in Mass Effect? No you would 

No i would not.  And i do not.  And i do not in MMO either.  Other people do and that's their choice.  

Why do we keep playing these MMOs that design their content around RMT via a "legit" feature? 

Because it's just an option.  As long as the game designed so that i have a legit option to obtain everything i need via reasonable in-game means (which means the game is not "P2W"), then I have the option to play it the way I want to play it  - which is by "earning" my stuff in game.  IF other people want to skip playing the game, that's option if there for them.  Live and let live.  If anything, they're helping fund further improvements in my game.  So thanks.

EQ2 - because that's where my guild is and that the game that - despite everything - still has the best endgame for PvE group content.  Great group instances, tons of challenging raids for every state of difficulty.  And even though it's 10 years old, there are constantly releasing updates and new stuff for the game.  


Firefall - with the official "launch", i decided to check it out  again.  It's a super fun game, if not "big" enough to be one's main MMO.  There are some things that are better now than in beta, some that are worse.  The odd thing is that the developers have ALL the ingredients for an awesome game, they just seem to be switching ON one good feature for a time, while turning off another.  At some point, they'll turn all the right knobs on and it'll rock.   

Avengers Alliance on Facebook!   - not really an MMO, but my friend got me totally addicted to this :(     so wrong....

I have watched the videos about the game and the game is awesome, but will this game run the risk of becoming EVE-Online 2? I am afraid of seeing this game go down as a EVE- 2 cesspool of hate, griefers and gankers,

I've never heard of EVE summarized as a "cesspool of hate, griefers and gankers".  Most people list it as "the best pvp game ever". or something like that.  I don't like PvP games, so i haven't played more than a couple of months a time several times over the years.


My understanding is that Elite requires actual flight skills, which makes it vastly different from EVE and also the main reason why i'm not playing it.  I'm terribad at flght sims and while i love the idea of massive space-set MMO, fact is that i simply can't fly very well.   


As far as ganking, from what i've read, it's pretty much non-stop at the moment in beta, since there aren't any consequences.  But that's what PvP games always end up being.   Until they make a game where the penalty for getting caught kililng someone is permadeath, you're going to have stupid behaviour.  Sadly, the only reason humans don't kill each other is because of consequences.   If there are no consequences or the consequences are light, you get psycohpath-central. 

I haven't found the community bad at all.  As a matter of fact, it's one of the best communities in recent memory.  Like 90% of the in-game chat is people genuinely helping out other people - whether with answering questions or to do stuff. 


There are (quite a few) obvious issues with the game, but them community is great.  If anything, the community is one of the things that makes those things easier to tolerate.

So what's changed?

a linear and much more vertical level progression has been added.

several major dynamic events have been removed (hopefully temporarily)

lots of voices storyline quests have been added.


How is the crafting? Are player made items the mainstay of the economy in the game, or?

the crafting is very extensive, but at the moment it all takes a s**t ton of resources and most people aren't bothering with it and just using mob drops.  seems like they'll need to make some adjusments to materials required, but the system is there and massive.

Is there open world pvp? Or is it everyone against an AI?

both exist.   i haven't gone to the open world pvp continent myself, nor likely ever will, since i play the game to PvE.

Is there an "AH" per se where you can sell items without having to spam in a chat channel?

yes, there is a market, accessible from anywhere.  i don't think you can auction things, but you can sell them.

How in depth is the battleframe customization?

the perk system added qutie a bit of options, since you can cross-use many perks from oher frames. there are also modules for weapons and frames that allow you to customize your loadout, all seems pretty good to me.


Haven't played this game in forever. I know the word sandbox got dropped around a little but It seems there have been many changes.

it was much more sandboxy prior to 1.0 (which was the "launch patch").  It can be played as pretty much 100% themepark now, but you CAN also play it as more of a sandbox, by just running around doing what you want, switching to the right level frame for whatever content, etc.    Personally, i really liked the sandboxy nature of things before and would like see the crafting go back that way and the dynamic events to be returned, but i am also enjoying the storyline missions - which are well done imo (even have voiceover) and really add to the flavour of the game.   IMO, if they had kept the game as it was and just added all these storyline missions, it woulda been a better game than it is now.  But it's still loads of fun and great immersive world to spend some time in.  (But probably not to make your one and only main MMO). 

Thanks in advance for the feedback!

No they did a resource "wipe"  but any frame you leveled will still be leveled  and if the gear could be converted it was.

i'm re-DLing now.  So what exactly did the OP mean by "everyone was started over again"?  


and did stuff like paint and patterns carry over?

Yes, the third main system is time-based, with EVE being the major game that uses it.


Level-based = as you gain levels, your character becomes more powerful.

Skill-based = as you use your skills, your character becomes more powerful.

TIme-based = as time passes, your character becomes more powerful.


Another system is "Action-based", although usually it ends being tied to levels.  But theoretically, you can have a system where "As you complete certain actions, your character becomes more powerful".  In most games though, there is an intermediary called "XP" which is awarded for actions and then the XP is used to get levels or skills and so on.  


There are also many combinations of 2 or 3 of the above. 


Didn't leave anything.  Still playing EQ2 for my raiding / challenge/ endgame type gameplay.  Playing ESO because it's new and shiny and for doing solo / small-group stuff.

I was trying to follow the storyline of the trailer,  but couldn't figure it out. 


So the guy in the middle tower with a bunch of nazguls around him, is like a general of MOlag Bal that is sending down the daedra against the "good guys" that are led by the horned helmet dude.  


But then there is another "good guy" (or not?) that is using a super-powerful wizard chick to lightning-break the walls so that the horned helmet dude can get inside... but why is she in chains?  


Anyhow.. i'm quite noob to ES, maybe someone can explain it all to me?

In today's MMO landscape, reaching max level has very little to do with difficulty.


As a matter of fact, it's usually done by avoiding as much of the difficult stuff as possible.

Spamming their acheivements all over forums is the number one resource for advertising there ability to get people leveled in a day.


Congrats to the advertising you just gave for power leveling.

Oh come on! That's just mean slander! How can you know this! I dubio pro reo. As long as there is no proof for anything shady, I won't believe they are hax bots just because you think so.

thats thebiggest problem, getting proof.


What is evident is this, im standing in daggerfall right now, seeing Power lever 1-50 and gold spam, in early access. If you are going to tell me there is no link between players getting to 50 in a day and gold farmer/levelrs, I got bridge i want to sell you for 1$.


Well, there is very easy way to prove what you're saying. Just take a screenshot of a level 50 gold spammer and post it. In my experience most new games offer "level 1-50 power levelling and gold for sale" even in games that have no levels OR gold (use a different currency). These people generally just use the same macro for every game.
Cogratz to peeps!

Same reason.


As far as the "it'll eventually be free", well, that's true for most things in the world.  If you want long enough, you can get just about anything free.   But with MMOs, i find they're much more fun early when you're among the explorers, all learning about the game, etc.   That experience justifies paying $60.   Unlike something like  Dark Souls 2 - i'm gonna eventually play it, but they'll be the same game in a year when it costs $20.  With an MMO, if you miss the launch, it's never quite the same.   

Why do so many people care about how OTHERS spend their in-game time? Maybe they thought the quests sucked or that the story was boring. Maybe what they skipped was what making them miserable and NOW they're having fun.   Or maybe, they've just been on for 48+ straight hours and didn't skip anything at all.  Maybe they DID do all the content, smelled the roses and everything.


Different people enjoy different things in MMOs. Live and let live.


Personally, even though i think most of the quests in ESO are pretty lame, I still plan to take it slow and do them.    But that's because I am not counting on ESO be my #1 game and to provide me with endgame (i already have EQ2 for that).  But that's me... everyone's different.
