Fractured MMO

Fractured is an open-world fantasy sandbox MMORPG which blends action combat with fully interactive environments, appealing equally to lovers of competitive and cooperative gameplay. Jump right into the fray from day one. Defeat your enemies with skill and wit, not equipment or level. Gather resources, craft, trade and venture into legendary travels as a solitary hero, or start a settlement with your guild and grow it into the next empire. A true sandbox MMORPG, Fractured lets players pursue the gameplay they enjoy, create the type of character they enjoy, and focus on doing what they enjoy. 
Fractured Key Features
Unique And Dynamic Setting – Explore the universe of Fractured, which is spread across three planets – Arboreus, Syndesia, and Tartaros. Travel is an important part of the game experience; unlike many traditional MMORPGS, players must find a way to survive as they traverse the worlds. In addition, eclipses, unique PvE events, have a huge impact on the lives of demons and humans. The state of the universe, and even the position of planets, matters!
Race Is More Than Cosmetic – The race you belong to has an actual impact on game mechanics, from the type of society you live in to the ways you can interact with other players. Choose a human and live in – or at odds with – a feudal society. Be a beastman, and live in harmony with nature. Or, choose a demon, and slake your thirst for blood and revenge!
Crafting That Matters – Finding a broadsword in the corpse of a rat sounds a little unlikely? Forget about old RPG clichés and enter a world where every item is crafted by players. Exploit the uneven distribution of resources to get high profits when trading at faraway markets – but make sure you reach your destination alive!
Get Into The Action – You do not need to grind zombies for 80 hours or reach some level limit before you can join your friends on adventures. In Fractured, you can take part in any content from the first day in the game! The Knowledge system offers power and flexibility, allowing players to develop exactly the character they wish to play.
Action Combat Evolved – Fractured melds the combat style you’ve loved in single-player Action RPGs with a complex sandbox universe. Learn to aim, dodge and master over 400 abilities and 40 unique status effects: only your skills and tactics will lead you to victory! The environment is fully interactive, and can be used to give you an edge in your adventures.

ESO: SCALEBREAKER DLC GAME PACK

The Scalebreaker DLC game pack brings two new Season of the Dragon dungeons, expanding upon the events of both Wrathstone and Elsweyr. The Dragons are free from the Halls of Colossus, and now you must deal with the fallout of their release. While these stories are part of the year-long saga, you can enjoy both without having completed either of the year’s earlier content—enjoy!
Lair of Maarselok
For centuries, Maarselok slept deep in the mountains between Elsweyr and Grahtwood. However, upon the opening of the Halls of Colossus, this monstrous Dragon has awoken, and now threatens to spread his corruption into the domain of the Wood Elves. Only with the help of the Warlock Carindon and the forest spirit Selene can you defeat this terrifying new Dragon!

Hunt the great Dragon Maarselok!
Moongrave Fane
Hidden within a fallen Khajiiti temple, the vampires of the Hollowfang prepare to perform a terrible ritual. Joined by the former Dragonguard Grundwulf, they wish to drain the blood from a captured Dragon! You and your team must fight your way into the fallen ruin and put a stop to their plan before it’s too late.
Both dungeons can be attempted in Normal and Veteran difficulties, with a Veteran Hard Mode option available for those looking for a challenge. Brave delvers can discover new rewards up for grabs in both dungeons, too, including new item sets, Achievements, collectibles, and more.
PURCHASE DETAILS
The Scalebreaker DLC game pack is free for all ESO Plus members and available for purchase for 1,500 crowns from the in-game Crown Store (listed under DLC).

What are your character(s)'s SMART goals?

Recommended Posts

Oh no! Why is this office work term showing up for a video game? Don't worry, you don't have to put anything if you don't want to. I just thought it would be nice to get an idea of folks' biggest priorities at the moment. We're a bit far in and maybe some of you have already finished your intended path and are just kind of meandering. If so, maybe put some thought into what next. If not, let us see if we can help each other by making our areas of focus known! Don't worry if someone else already posts the same goal or a conflicting goal. Just have fun with it!

 

What do I mean by SMART goals? If you don't work in an office (or even if you do) you may not have heard this term or may know of more than one definition of the acronym. So here is what I am talking about.

 

Specific: Narrow down your goal and be specific. It isn't just Acquire a House. Row, village, town, city make huge differences to the scope of the goal. Does it need to be an NPC city lot, or is POT lot just fine? Do you want to use a specific house deed? Etc....

 

Measurable: Make sure your goal has a way to measure progress! Things like Reach X Level or Acquire Y Possession are easy. The numbers are right there. Something like Be the best Blacksmith in Novia is rather nebulous. What parameters make you the best? Highest skill? Most sales? Most profit? How do you get numbers from your competition to measure against? By all means, strive to be the best, but its hard to make a measurable goal out of and thus falls short of this exercise.

 

Achievable: The goal should be achievable in the game systems. Becoming the Governor of Ardoris is not achievable in the game systems (to my knowledge).

Relevant: This is more of a workplace thing where your goal should be relevant to your position / responsibilities. In this case we're going to swap it our with Rewarding, Make sure your goal is something that will promote fun for you personally!

 

Timely: We're playing a game, not running a project so we don't need deadlines. But we should keep timeliness in mind. I could say for example, that I want to earn a million gold. That ticks all of the above boxes, but it would take me so long to do that I might become demotivated. In that case, it is time to break it up.

Arnaeus Moonglow's Goals:

  • Save Up 4 Months worth of Tax Credit for a Village Lot
  • Reach Level 100 in Tailoring Skill
  • Reach Level 75 in Tailoring Masterwork Proficiency
  • Reach Level 50 in Cloth Masterwork Proficiency

 

These are broken down goals, out of much larger ones. As these get hit they will be upgraded to their more ambitious versions.

 

Largest Challenges:

  • Grinding out the required Crafting XP
  • Farming the Silver - Earth Elemental respawn rate makes solo farming more challenging last I checked.

Not seen anyone else on in a while, but figured I'd drop a personal progress report in here anyways.

 

Have my village lot paid out to 70 days out of 120. So little more than half. Grinding bandit Fighters for halberds in Serpent's Spine Foothills still seems the fastest gold farm when solo.

Tailoring is at 99/100, so that is almost off my list as well. Crafting XP Grind is still rough in time consumption, though I am starting to do a little better against the elementals. The new resists system made them a bit tougher, but it is more likely to fight one or two at a time than three or four now.

 

 

Still slowly chipping along.

Haha, too many to list!

 

Stretch Goal: More engagement with community in an effort to recruit/grow the chapter!

 

That one is presently tough given my limited play time and the fact that new players are rare and most existing ones have formed affiliations.

I have been busy doing some personal security jobs, but I am home now. I will probably try and get on some as nothing needs my attention for a few months.

It'll be nice to see you again. I had taken a break myself prior to starting this thread up.

 

Just wrapped up my housing pre-payment to 105 days, which seems to be a limit. But I've got the funds set aside to cover another month of tax. So first of the above goals completed. Now I get to go back into mining silver constantly.

More than willing to tag along to help out if we wind up online at the same time. Some areas got harder, some got easier. Mob spawns are way faster, which makes things like silver collection a bit more combat intensive.
