My Mini-Mes (November 2018)

I saw Tyler from Superior Realities's posts about his stable of characters (impressive!) and decided I'd do the same or something similar. After searching through my own blog, I found that I last did that in August 2015. I am going to focus on my most played characters instead of showing my whole stable, as … Continue reading My Mini-Mes (November 2018)

GW2 New Lion's Arch

New Lion’s Arch

Can you believe that after all the screenshot galleries I've made for Lion's Arch in its various stages, I have never made one of the rebuild town? You can see the original Lion's Arch in this post (from April 2012). About two years later, in February 2014, I made a second gallery because I felt … Continue reading New Lion’s Arch

Lake Doric in Kryta

I admit, it does feel a bit like cheating when I'm filling my picture-count for IntPiPoMo with a blog post like this. But when I thought about what kind of blog posts I could do with pictures (other than the regular ones as I always include at least one picture with each blog post), this … Continue reading Lake Doric in Kryta

Please give me Rift Wars 2 (Blaugust Post 6)

If Rift and Guild Wars 2 had a baby, I would probably end up with my perfect MMO. Both games have features that I really love while also missing the mark in other areas. Together, however, it'd be great. I love Rift's open world. Switching between continents gives you a loading screen, but other than … Continue reading Please give me Rift Wars 2 (Blaugust Post 6)

Defiance 2050

Summer of MMOs: Rift, Defiance, Guild Wars 2

My little rogue in Rift (Prime) is still little. Well, she is a dwarf, but she still hasn't reached the level cap yet. Ember Isle has been released on Prime and since I never experienced this region when the level cap was at 50, I would actually really like to make it there. But levelling … Continue reading Summer of MMOs: Rift, Defiance, Guild Wars 2

Rift Greater Vicious Wyvern Beastmaster Pet

Pet classes and MMOs

I have often seen people ask "Will there be a pet class?" before an MMO released and it appears that this is the deciding factor in whether they're interested in the game. I personally am torn when it comes to these classes: I actually enjoy playing a pet class sometimes, but not as my main … Continue reading Pet classes and MMOs

Cities in MMOs

One thing that's been bothering me about Rift since its release is the lack of "proper" towns and cities. The "main city" of the Guardian faction, Sanctum, is a building with some space all around it. The Defiant faction doesn't have anything bigger either. It is understandable given the lore and all.  But then there … Continue reading Cities in MMOs

Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire – First Impressions (NO story spoilers!)

Just as indicated in the subject: I am not going to write about the story here. I, myself, am not far in yet and I certainly wouldn't want to take away any content for my readers either. So instead, I am going to give you a few impressions I have gotten without talking about the … Continue reading Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire – First Impressions (NO story spoilers!)

MMO gaming-goals this autumn

I really miss the time where I played only one MMORPG (World of Warcraft) and Guild Wars 1 for its story whenever I found time. I am currently trying to dip my toes into too many games at once while actually not having time for any of them. So I thought about what I want … Continue reading MMO gaming-goals this autumn

Paeroka’s Ponderings: Racial skills?

I have recently tried hopping into Elder Scrolls Online again and as I want a fresh start, I looked up guides and possible builds for the classes, to get a feeling for which class I may want to play. While I did that, I noticed that several posts about builds (e.g., this one or this … Continue reading Paeroka’s Ponderings: Racial skills?
