Wayback Wednesday is ready to party like it's 1999 with the first foray through Asheron's Call. Rob was joined by six members of the Turbine staff as he took his first baby steps into the world. See how it went in this week's Wayback Wednesday and then leave your thoughts in the comments.
Asheron’s Call is the ultimate sandbox MMO. There are no classes in the game and therefore the trinity has never existed. Every character can tank, do damage, and heal. As you progress through the game and earn experience you can put points into stats and skills that you find helpful or interesting. One of these skills is Jump. The more points you put into jump the further and higher you can jump. This is helpful because AC does have puzzles in the game that require you to jump to different platforms. The team compared this to jumping on the moon. Does an MMO that lacks the trinity and has jumping puzzles sounds familiar to anyone else? I love going back and discovering things we consider innovative today already exist in older MMOs.
