Returning player.

Postby xpgsarajayne » Sun May 12, 2013 12:36 pm

Hello everyone.

I'm looking into starting playing AO once again and was just looking for some basic information on a few things like if anything has changed since I last played.

First of all I'm a level 208MP, Playing on RK1 And If I remember I should be set up with full expansions and have all my armor and a few beast armor items.

So to the questions.

No 1, Did the server merge ever take place I know there was talks of merging rk1,2, together with the German servers also.

No 2, Did the character re-balance happen? If not revert to 3.

No 3, Are there any plans on implementing it any time soon?

No 4, Are there any other changes I should be aware of IE to the player base and the new starter area and new ICC if that got released.

Thank you for reading my questions and answering them if you have the time too.

1/ Yes.
2/ No.
3/ Who can tell...
4/ Not a great deal, if you've got Xan then you're pretty much up to date, there's a few things like collector and daily missions and suchlike. Your biggest job will be bringing your characters back up to speed.

Also, outdoor cities have been removed. Now they are instanced via ICC.

This means not being able to quickly return to civilization through the "bar whompas" if you're out in the middle of nowhere.

I just got stuck last night trying to get back to civilization from Greater Omni-Forest. I was on my way to try to trim a few minutes off the flight when I realized I didn't have enough Comp Lit to use the grid terminal at 4 Holes. It took forever to fly back to Old Athen. For level 208, you should be ok. You'll just have to learn all the tricks as to where the nearest grid terminal or whompa is from some of the out-of-the way places. If you have Veteran points, you can buy recall beacons.

Other changes to look out for as a MP: Rihwen is now YESDROP (as of last week). So in rather than trying to put together a BioDome raid, you optionally can try to find one on GMI and pay vast amounts of credits for your final MP pet.

I can't think of anything else (game changing things) off hand that has changed for the MP profession.

You can always go the froob route. A lot of people that return like to do that first so they can become used to things in the game again before diving in to trying to remember how their toons work ;)
