Leakreader2 Q&A

""using Sprint the entire time you can. This is the best way to travel"
what about mounts?"

I mean if you are on foot and do not have a mount or a boat and so on. None of which I have had personally in beta. I think what is interesting about sprint is that it lasts for a long time. Many games have a very limited burst sprint that turns off combat abilities and then refreshes. This is very different. You can fight while sprinting and sprint a long time. However, travelling on foot and using sprint quite a bit leaves you in a weakened position if you encounter danger. So it is a trade off to travel faster using it, while doing so with much greater risk.

"- Do you think it will be ready for the limited "open beta" on the 22nd, or will that be postponed?
- Does the game feel more ready after the latest patches/fixes (if there were any)?
- How do the beta testers feel atm?"

Servers are still down and I assume they are working on it. So I don't have much to say about that. Other testers have various opinions as you would expect. Many are huge fans of the game and the concept, as I have become, and others are highly critical of it. My feeling is that if this is the type of game you have been waiting for and following a long time, then most likely you will really love it, as long as your expectations are realistic and you are ready for a very harsh world.




"When you say it takes 30-40 minutes to get from one capital to another.. does that mean the adjoining races capital city? Like Flaming Skull to Sanguine? If so I think the game world will be plenty big then. As long as I can't run the entire length/width of the central continent in 30-40 minutes."

I am talking about the closest different capital cities of the different races. If you were sprinting the shortest possible distance between them on the outer edge of the land mass. Believe it or not, 30-40 minutes is a long time to sprint through the wilderness for one of the shorter journeys. I really don't think the world being too small is going to be an issue for most people. -leakreader2

QUESTION: What about the forest? How does it look like? Is it dense? With bushes, small, large trees? Or just one tree here, one tree there...
Noone said a thing about forest... :(

Thanks a lot for answering the questions Leakreader2 :)

I'm sure there will be more to follow... :-P

Eleven said...

I dont see why people in a pvp game would really give a shit how long it takes to cross the game world. WHO GIVES A SHIT!If anything make the world smaller for more pvp action. This isnt a RP game.

Newjack said...

@eleven, The will be plenty of pvp and resource fighting, but the world needs to be big enough for people to get away from pvp if they want.

This game is not all about pvp.

Nardagor said...

General question to any leaker.
Question, are stats(dex,vit,str...) Fixed or do they improve when you use skills?

Jonny said...

@Eleven, they've said many times before that they want to make the game just as fun for PvErs.

This and if stats improve how fast do they improve, and to what extent(like from 25 to 100).
