And yet everyday, people complete the NYT crossword puzzle without looking up answers on wikipedia.  They like the challenge of figuring it out.  Just because people like to cheat, doesn't mean we should stop making games that challenge people's brains.  Nothing wrong with a guide, and looking stuff up, but that doesn't mean developers should stop giving us interesting puzzles.

Are you playing a game or a walkthrough site?

Oh, and I put another hour into TSW.  It was just more of collection quests with bread crumbs.  I saw one dynamic event with a Golden man that turned into a golem.  The combat just got easier as I plunked down my AP and got some more skills.  I still didn't encounter any mysteries or puzzles.  It makes me wonder, "Shouldn't a game reveal it's essence to the gamer in the first hours?"  The TSW fans keep saying just put more time into it.  I'd compare it to a novel.  If I'm not into it after the first 50 pages, there is little for me to find there or the author didn't do his/her job.  Wouldn't it be smart to make the player solve a puzzle or discover a secret in the first scenario of this game?  It is a beautiful game.  It has a level of maturity I like.  It has a good story.  I also like its skill tree.  Anywho... rambling ending.

Yeah, one thing about all MMOs that I do agree with you on is the idea of clearly marked questgivers and map pointers.  In TSWs case, the investigations are the missions with the little laptop icon on -- there are 3 types (action, investigation and sabotage).

It's a failing of the genre, really.  All NPCs could potentially hand you a quest -- why not bake all this lore and mystery into the world itself, and let us discover it instead of pasting all these signposts around?  I liked the old school Ultima (I-VII) style of having the players talk to the NPCs and using our heads to figure out the story.

So I tried and tried and tried to like this game.  I have rolled 5+ characters before and just couldn't get into it.  Anyway the other night I decided why not I'll give this another shot and I've already made it to Savage Coast and I've been having a blast.  Something just clicked for me I guess.  A lot of my major initial complaints at launch have been resolved - animations in particular seem a lot smoother and tighter.  The game runs flawlessly 60+ FPS with everything maxed out (i7 3.4 ghz, 8GB RAM, 7950) sans a few server desynch issues I had one night but that could have been due to something on my end.

The only thing I'm really missing in this title is some open world pvp but I'm missing that in pretty much every well populated title out there due to current trends.

*Also I think my weapon/power choice made a big difference this time through as far as my enjoyment goes.  So I'd recommend experimenting with different weapons/powers and their combos before totally writing the game off.

The weapons each have their own style of play, and that can be a big part of it, BUT the real key is to understand the active/passive synergies.  Once you understand the combos (passives that exploit the conditions your actives trigger), you can create some powerful decks.  The game doesn't do a very good job of explaining this, but there are some good build guides out there.  The downside is that's it's too easy to create sucky decks. 

The one thing that EVERYONE seems to miss is the Search tool to the right of the ability wheel.  Just type in a condition you want to exploit, and it brings up all the abilities that have it in the description.  This is huge if you are looking for ability combos.


May be black Friday only, not sure -- here's the link:

Edit: thru December 2.

Go try the investigation quests in TSW without looking up the walkthrus.
There's no sub anymore (b2p) so relog and try it again.  Your account should still be on there.

Stupid question.Where can i download these dlc's? :/

You buy them through the in-game item shop.

Does two-button mouse run work like World of Warcraft (and Ryzom and Entropia Universe)? Or do you have to use the keyboard to move?

I am attempting to download the client right now :) thank you for the buddy key.

Yes, 2 button mouse moves you forward, same as in other MMOs.  There's also a reticle combat mode you can use by pressing T.

Originally posted by NevadaJake

Is the control system similar to WoW? (can you hold down both mouse buttons to run?)

Do you have to buy things from the cash shop to win?

Is there any chance of a free trial?



Yeah, best thing to do is use the trial key to test for yourself.  Also, before hopping in look over the stickies in the newcomer forum:

Cash shop is primarily cosmetics and potions (health, AP boosters), with some convenience items and weapons (not as good as what you get by playing thru an elite dungeon) for subs.

Best thing to do is contact customer support -- I believe they have live chat:

combat is 85% of this game and people have a right to like what they want and can voice it how they wish as long as its respectful. I to have always since day 1 thought this game was crap and it wouldnt be buy to play from subscription if it was so successful. Just like people on here saying how great AOC is yet they are down to one server , obviously there is a lot more people that agree with us about these games than a minority of players on this site. They also promised new combat animations and skills yet have still to this day never implemented them.

Naturally , everyone can and should voice their opinion ...

But when it mostly doesn't make any sence then you can also question the reason for why players feel that way.

As evident in your post you are making bold assumptions based on both these games populations, If the populations are low that means the game must be bad and that they also agree with you..

I'll give you somewhat right, It could be "ONE" of the reasons people isn't playing AOC or TSW.

I Think the bad population numbers come from a whole multitude of diffrent reasons, where one of them is an old rumour about bad combat and poor animations that has been around since the game released.  Naturally it's up to each individual to Think what they wan't and also voice it, but in this particular case , I'd say it's pretty much bullshit.

Bullshit you say, well that's your opinion, yeah , thats right..But I'm basing it off playing the game with a alot of players , and not even ONCE has ANYONE  EVER complained about "the poor animations" or the "bad combat"

The ONLY time I see this is in forums talking about the game, and well...

Yeah..I Think it's wrong...but that's me :)



I think the real problem is that there's very little in the way of tutorial on the combat system, and many people are picking abilities and skills without really understanding how they work.  The freedom of the TSW ability wheel and skills also gives players the complete freedom to create a deck that is utter crap.  It doesn't help that the decks (hidden where many never see them) aren't that great either.  Once people start to understand the synergies between abilities, they start feeling better about what they can do.  Most, I think, though jump in, pick some random abilities, create a random crap deck, mash the buttons for awhile thinking they are locked into that build forever, and then quit/start trash talking.  There's good info in the forums, but if the average ADD gamer doesn't take 2 seconds to read and learn, it's unlikely they'll pick things up.

As for animations, that's completely subjective.  /shrug

To expand a little on the above posts (all good info), the PvP in the game has a small but dedicated following, primarily focused on theorycrafting builds, and countering other popular builds (glance tanks were the rage for awhile).  Coming up with a good build that counters what other players are doing in the battlegrounds can be fun or not, depending on your preference.   And yes, if you don't take the time to learn and prep, you will die frequently and fast.

There are 3 battlegrounds -- Fusang (the largest), El Dorado and Stonehenge (the minigames).  All are server agnostic, though Fusang has battlegroups based on your home server.  Being undergeared in PvP is the big hurdle, and after that it becomes about customizing your build.  There are also 3 fight clubs (London, New York and Seoul), where tournaments are scheduled fairly regularly for solo and team fights).

In general, the players are friendly to newcomers and will help you get acclimated.  Here's a coupla links:

Really one of the better written articles on the game -- thank you, Chris.  TSW is not for everyone, but it's definitely nice to see some new ideas in an MMORPG.  The scenarios in Issue 8 are challenging and a lot of fun; it will be interesting to see how they expand on these going forward.  Tokyo is next!  :)

I haven't played in a while (since 5). Do you buy the issues in game? I got an email letting me know 8 was up with a link to buy it, but when I click the link I go to my account, but no offer to buy the issue. I looked at the in game store and there isn't a clear way to buy it there either. I haven't bought 6 or 7.

Yeah you can buy the issues through the in-game store.

I recently bought a decent enough laptop (MSI GX60), and I finally got the whole "TSW combat suck" thing.

Combat really does suck, playing TSW on my laptop :(

I am 90% sure that explains 90% of the critisism against TSW combat. I`ve been scratching my head since launch, trying to understand how so many people could find the fluent, elegant TSW combat "cluncky". Now I understand.

I wonder what percentage of the combat criticisms are due to:

- Dislike of animations (even with a high-powered PC)

- Underpowered video card/CPU

- Default settings too high (DX11/high settings vs DX9 or lower)

- Misunderstanding the ability wheel and deck system

- Server lag

- Builder/consumer mechanic

Or, ask for a trial key below and actually play the game:

Still the best write-up and summary of the game:

Definitely worth it.

Looking forward when they decide to introduce additional slots for active buttons. One of very fun  and pretty original but I stopped long ago to play buttons mashers.

Don't forget that you have up to 525 abilities that can slotted in your deck (7 active / 7 passive + aux weapon).  There's no need to stay with the same abilities throughout the entire game -- as you earn more abilities, switch up your build!  See:

I just picked it up the other day and have mixed feelings about it so far. I like that its partially open ended in how you play and has a unique setting. I don't like that its utterly confusing in some cases, what to do, how to play and do things, and there doesn't seem to be much social interaction with other players. Combat is probably the worse aspect of the game, being a very boring mix of unrealistic actions and repetition. Plus you die a lot, partially because enemies are very thick, dangerous and respawn quickly. But Ill keep at it.

Hola!  Here's a couple forum threads that I think will be helpful:

Once you start increasing the number of skills and abilities, you can switch up your build and get more interesting combat effects; your build is key to survivability -- don't be afraid to ask questions.  Lots of good tips in the build section as well:
