Exploring War Like Worlds.

Posts Tagged ‘allods

I tried out the empire side on the new server. I tried the Arisen and the summoner class. The introduction was fun.

I also read mmotaku’s posts on playing allods with his wife. One on the auction house, one on problems priest and mages have with soloing. He also has a first impressions post.

Prices also came down to X3 russian prices from its high at X20 russian prices.

I don’t know if I will ever spend money though. I usually buy permanent items, like costumes, mounts, pets etc. I don’t know if I am going to buy an item just to remove a debuff.

I have bought extra bag space before, but its not the first thing I want to spend money on.


Just a reminder that allods is in open beta since yesterday.

If you have not tried this fun game I would recommend doing so.

I may get chance to remake my characters today.

But it is against this incredible, immediate sense of imminent peril that they then ask you to learn the game. And to do it by performing relatively menial and chores and tasks, and by reading incredibly large volumes of text which attempt to explain the game’s very complex systems – all of them – while chaos reigns around you. In other words, just about the worse scenario imaginable in which to learn something.

I think this is very true. In Fallen Earth I think many people deal with this by not learning the game in the first tutorial because they are under too much pressure. They learn the game after the first tutorial in the extended tutorial when there is no pressure, or later still wandering in the starting town, asking question in help.

Because as a new player, if the game is telling me in every way possible that there’s imminent danger, but the game is also telling me it’s okay to take the time to read this wall of text about skill system, then I know the game is lying to me.

However with the imminent danger most people don’t read or don’t remember. I know I tend to skip whats being said in those sorts of beginnings, I only read when I force myself to slow down. I remember this from Allods.
