Wolcen: Major Content Patch

If you haven't already heard, Wolcen just dropped a huge 1GB content patch yesterday (6/24/2019). They added a lot of good stuff, and they are really moving along in the development path.  If you haven't heard of "Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem" before, it is an Action RPG similar to Diablo III that is being developed for Steam by Wolcen Studios.  On a side note, it is on sale this week for 20% off!

ATLAS: Present and Future

We have been at it since day one, that ugly and...well, let's just stick with ugly...launch. Even through the lag muck and server instability, you could read the stars and see the potential.  Right off the bat it was only for the tough, and we barreled through the glitchy log-ins, the shaky starter zones and the wretched "lawless" starting areas and found our way to the rafts.  Some were able to get to our island after 3-4 hours of learning how to tack, zig zag and fight through server borders and with a full stack of human hides, and then some were finally rescued after what seemed like days of being eaten alive by scorpions and crocodiles, only to quickly get used to dying to the cold, the wolves, the alpha horses, the water, the sharks and each other's general noob mistakes.
Yes, with the known developer, we did try to ARK it, or Dark and Light it...hell, we've even tried to Life is Feudal this one....and Atlas is just NOT those games.  Some visuals and sounds are there, but the depth and options and functionality is just SO much more.  What really took the game from just another ARK expansion to, the potential mmo of the decade, was getting out on our first schooner, the SS Skjoldr (video below).  The experience was entirely PvE, but when you have 13 people packed on to a single vessel and the guys repairing the ship are as vital as the helmsman steering and the deckhands manning the sails, it became something I haven't seen in a game since our friday night flights on the Decimator back in SWG.
We have had just a blast learning the game and surviving our island and our neighbors over the past couple weeks.  Though it may appear as if we are well off enough, growing from 30 actives day one, to more than double that now, we absolutely could use more folks interested in living the Atlas life.  Whether you are interested in navigating the high seas, captaining a brigand, farming the tundra, mucking through politics, taming elephants or exploring the massive (30-40 hours of sailing from one end to the other) world, it is all here and we have many members willing to help you get started.
Here is a few screencaps and videos to give you an idea of what we have been up to:

  12. Every day of March has new gemstore sales. Today's sale is pretty good, I bought both of these previously. You basically get a bonus chest every day in the mail for each of these boards. If you have some spare gems, worth the buy. https://twitter.com/GuildWars2/status/1104080459443638272
  13. it's not as hard as could be imagined. You have to spend 1 mastery point to unlock the collection, then kill some guards, take a camp, a tower, a keep, and buy a couple things. Then just finish the Warclaw track (a lot of people saved potions apparently, I did not). It's not that bad right now because there are a lot of zerg actions taking things rapidly, and a bonus xp time right now to assist. The keep take is probably the hardest thing, but like I said, lots of zergs out and about right now. They are increasingly hard to follow since most have their kitties.... but I equiped 3 speed skills on the ranger to try and keep up. Also, I went to EotM (which has been dead for yonks) to take a keep. Had 3 other people, we put 2 catapults down and stormed Arid, easy peasy.
  14. Now I'm really jealous! How did you go about the collections? --Leah

  16. Warclaw mount is out today. Queue times for WvW have been horrendous as I understand! I had a queue of over 30 people before work this morning.... so can only imagine what prime time US queue times have been. I'll have to see how I go tonight
  17. Jealous, but not of all the work that goes into it WTG! — Leah
  18. Still have a ways to go before I get the legendary, but got the precursor made http://prntscr.com/mtcvms
  19. I saw the reasons for the delay.... a few big names in that list..
  20. Well Leah, I've had to spend some time out there for the Gift of Battle Then when I got done with 1 of those, I needed another 1 But now I have a third because I'm still short on Memories of Battle.... Silly legendary weapons making me go out there! Almost to rank 50 now. Also, often times I go out to do an easy daily, to get my 2 gold.
  21. [Release has been delayed until March 5th. See the official forums for an explanation. ] Can’t wait! https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/tame-the-warclaw/ —Leah
  22. JQ to rule them all. Cheers Grim
  23. Wait—you were out in WvW and I missed it? I’ve been on leave, kinda, but I definitely have to stop by more often. 😁 —Leah
  24. JQ is no longer paired with TC. We are now paired with Anvil Rock. The few times I've been out there, seems there was a lot of whining on TC... and when I went out shortly after reset after the shakeup... it was quiet chat! could be a good thing, but could be a bad thing too. Time will tell.
  25. If you want to unlock mounts in GW2, now is the time to buy the expansion! 50% off until 14 Jan!
