Also, amazing job on the 'New Player Experience.'

I recommend everyone to start a new character just so they can walk through it and see the huge difference it makes.

I could never quite put my finger on key aspect of this game that irked me, and now I know what it was:

NPC Names!

Having the tutorial quest NPCs have actual character names makes an incredible difference to the mood and believe-ability of the game. Please make adding character names a priority for ALL NPCs, even TGs!

I really think this patch is awesome! I love seeing the textures on the ground and little things floating past in the wind!

A suggestion, though:

The long-winded descriptions for Attack, Consumables, and Utility feats are cumbersome; I feel like the information would be better portrayed in point form, or list form. Also, the entries as they are create a disconnect between Armour feats and Attack feats information, as the descriptions have different formatting. I think the layout of information should be the same for both.

For example:

Point Blank Shot (1)


Effect Power (instead of Keyword Results): 1 | 110% Magnitude and/or Duration
Base Damage vs. Equal: XX vs. Light Armour | XX vs. Medium Armour | XX vs. Heavy Armour
(This data is so ambiguous I really am not sure it is even useful…smile

To keep them equal, I think that the 'Effect Protection' entries in Armour feats should also read like the Effect Power:

Effect Protection: 1 | -10% Magnitude and/or Duration

Not sure what "…effect magnitude or duration against Skirmisher Trainer" means, but it seems like a mistake.

Anyway, the overall idea of the smart tool tips is AWESOME! People are going to love that the matched keywords turn blue and that some of the math is broken out for them.

All in all, excellent work GW!

PS. THE MAP IS SO AWESOME

Mmmm, nope. I think it is for the reason Cal said.

I really like KarlBob's suggestion: just create amped up versions of the same spells for each tier (Fireball, Greater Fireball, Epic Fireball).

Not only is the tech already in place, it frees up those other spells (the ones that used to be the progressions) to have their OWN progression, creating a massive options for spells, and therefore character customisation, in the long run.

I was able to train it in Brighthaven yesterday.

May we also please have a charging version of Strength Surge?

Thank you!

Thanks Nihimon and Rynnik;

The table at the bottom of Page 5 of my guide is strictly for the Feats, not the armour itself. So it should be correct (other than not showing rank 11 and 12, for simplicity sake).

Let me know if that is not the case. As I state in the guide, the progression of Keywords on the Feats and the Gear do not always match up, which personally is the biggest lesson of the keyword system as a whole.

Well, let's start with:

What Utility Feats are you using?

[edit: here is a list of all utility feats currently in the game:

Utility Feats]

I appreciate the help, I use the Golbinary regularly, I have read your Keyword guide and the combat guide; I just struggle to understand what it all means. smile

I understand. There are a lot of options.

The main thing to do is choose, or test, some Feats that work best for YOU. I have trained 6 or 8 of the available Utilities, just so I could see how they work and see if they compliment my other feats and fighting style.

It all really comes down to that. Don't get hung-up in trying to find the 'best-build' and that sort of thing. Find what works best for you, THEN build around that.

Once you have decided on Utilities that work well for you, it is easy to find the Gear that has the appropriate keywords for them.

Multiple versions of the Keywords on the GEAR, not the Feat. You can have two Feats with the exact same Keywords, if you choose.

As to your other points, yes, I would stay away from Charge type abilities for now, but that doesn't really leave you in a bind in any way. There are a ton of useful Utilities.

For your Fighter, I would suggest Bulwark, Trip, Tumble (Dex), or Resiliency.
For your Freeholder, I would suggest Lookout, Evasion, Tumble, or Resiliency
