Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning Videos: 'Quests' Podcast! (18:52)

EA Mythic gives a firsthand look at the way the quest structure is broken down into charges, adventures and epics. Individual quest types like kill collectors, tome, exploration, RvR and public quests are each illuminated in a way that is only possible with the help of creative director, Paul Barnett.

xAlrythx writes: that was a poor attempt at humour, not to mention a useless podcast, the quest system seems like the usual quest systems in most mmos, they seem to have made it easier to follow the storyline using chapters though props on that if it actually helps. Sun Jun 10 2007 7:40AM Report
Khamax writes: Seems like the usual systems? Where in any other game do you see a public quest system? or smart enough NCPs to know that you already killed the monster they wanted you to kill? Sun Jun 10 2007 8:44AM Report
shargas writes: The Public quests look really nice, not to mention the way they all have influence in the pvp system. Sun Jun 10 2007 9:14AM Report
Sp00sh writes: I love quests, and all of these seem like great new ideas! I can't wait! Sun Jun 10 2007 11:43AM Report
xAlrythx writes: I was just saying there really isn't anything new here, and it's not hard to program the game to record your kills off a certain type of monster and save it for the NPCs related to the specific monster type, there is nothing smart or advanced about the NPCs at all.

Ronadem writes: all seemed like really good ideas, cant remember how many times ive been asked to collect some stupid thing like eyes or paws and only getting one, if that, from a single kill, i know the mob i killed had 2 eyes. The public quests arent that big of a change from raids but i think the new system will help out alot, finaly able to join a raid battle without waiting and searching for 40 different people.

Rhoklaw writes: The quests types themselves are probably not innovative, no. The way you approach or complete the quests are what have been improved. Public raids are not exactly new either, no, in fact they've existed in Mythic's original flagship MMO DAoC as well as other MMO's, but most MMO's instance these raids, where here, its a public open raid. Is that broken down enough for you to understand? =) Sun Jun 10 2007 9:21PM Report

Necrotide writes: I really like the idea of both the Exploration and the Public Quests. Turned from an IP I cared nothing about, to willing to pay monthly for. Mon Jun 11 2007 8:05AM Report
Ormtrod writes: Paul Barnett is hilarious. That was great and I love the fact that the kill quests already know if you killed the target creatures! Sweet. I am really looking forward to this! Mon Jun 11 2007 12:13PM Report
Isane writes: Interesting someone has missed the point, there are several big differences here. And that is no flashing question marks in at least 3 of the 6 types. Shows a lot of scope not seen in many of the current MMOs Mon Jun 11 2007 3:37PM Report
0k21 writes: yeah, I understood everything he said, pretty good podcast, longer and more informative than what the other ones were, they're starting to give more information from what I've seen. Tue Jun 12 2007 9:37AM Report
Povey151 writes: They didnt really add all that much new. BUT BUT BUT, they tweaked everything that was kinda broke about the standard system, and from the sounds of it made it much better. Again for me, this went from an IP i didnt really care about, well now im very interested. Wed Jun 13 2007 2:44AM Report

pristontale writes: sure alryth you can just go play WoW, Public quests? ive not seen those in anything else. exploration quests? ooh cool. not to common. Tome quests which we have no idea about may be new. I bet that you never enjoy things are you yourself a developer? Mon Jun 18 2007 11:48AM Report

unherdninja writes: I love these pod cast. every time i see them i want to throw my WoW discs in the fire and play WAR even more. each one is better and better and this is the most amazing. The Creators of WAR look like there really trieing hard to get rid of the common grind or atleast make grinding alot funner Fri Jun 22 2007 10:06PM Report

Aguy writes: WAR creaters are trying to be as original as possible, while still maintaining the fantasy world. It looks like the quests in this game are going to be great. Another thing, I'm glad they are making those exploration quests. I'm so tired of seeing those people who could care less about the game's story. Fri Jul 20 2007 1:41PM Report
Smackr writes: until now it does not look to exciting :/ but I'm going to keep my eye on this game hoping to see something better and more original. have been a fan of warhammer since I was 7 yr old and have many good memories playing with my m8s. it would be a shame if a big project like WAR is not going to be more than this...
