It wont be fun when everyones a dragon though, since it looks like its going to be the "fan-favorite" while your playing all you see is dragons

Not everyone will be a dragon thou. Hell from articles about the beta it's pretty even. Not everyone is doing dragons. And Plus the Power gamers might try dragons but i seriously doubt they will stick to em when they see how much time it takes for them to really get good. probaly the first week or two that it goes live you will probaly see a ass load of dragons. but after that i think it will start dieing down. and mainly the devoted dragon players will be sticking to theres.

"Shall we play a game?"

I was reading a little about this game and how you can make items.  As you progress with you skill in the art of sword making,  you can add little things to it.  Fire, magic, etc and you will see the effect of it...

Hi all, new here (yeah, the beta giveaway sucked me in)...

I'm looking forward to this game.  It has some great ideas, especially the ability to affect the world around you more than in any other game out there that I know of.

As for dragons, I agree... there will be many at first, then it will thin out.  That's not to say everyone won't TRY a dragon.  I'm sure I will, but it won't be my main.

From a artcile i was looking at there thinking about cuting the get to and adult dragon time down a little bit it hink it was close to 6 months. There talking about making it a little easier and makeing it like 3 months and a day. The time to be anicent is still the same i believe which it should be.

Here is a quote from the HZ site.

 

"Here is an example of how many permutations of swords one could create with the crafting system. The following numbers are representative of a conservative look at what can be done in Horizons and are in no way the final numbers as additional assets can be created very easily to add content and style. 25 different blades can be placed on 25 different hilts, 10 distinct tassels could be attached to the hilt, 10 shader effects could be placed along the blade or hilt, 10 particle systems can be placed along the blade or rotating around it and 6 metal alloys usable by crafters allow for millions of permutations.

I am the same way...I love being an archer.  I think from what I have read that the saris will also make great archers.

I found this link to someone who did some investigating into starter stats...this is just from what he saw in a vid, so it is not 100%.

But it sure backs up what I said about Saris archers.

Aye it actually takes RL time I dont think many powergamers want to waist time on that.  Most will be happy with the less damanding characters.  Gald they did this a ncie little way to balance things out and it also adds a little Fantasy background to it, no dragon starts off a bringer of death and chaos it takes time
