Paeroka’s Ponderings: Gear and level-advantages in PvP

Some time ago, I read a topic in the German section of the Black Desert Online forum where a player suggested that the game's PvP may be better if there were no level-advantages as a higher level gives better stats, for example. He was laughed at by others and called "carebear" for wanting that. Unfortunately, … Continue reading Paeroka’s Ponderings: Gear and level-advantages in PvP

Guild Wars 2: The upside of having a “content drought”

I saw a post on MMORPG.com about the potential correlation between content updates and increased earnings for ArenaNet and Guild Wars 2 which got me thinking about my gaming behaviour related to their content updates. In general, I would say that the less new content they release, the less money I spend in Guild Wars … Continue reading Guild Wars 2: The upside of having a “content drought”

Why the rush? – Blaugust Day 16

I was so close to level 18 with my spellslinger, that I headed off to a nearby quest hub, grabbed all the quests I saw, killed whatever had the quest-icon next to its head and ran back as fast as my Aurin's legs could take her, just so I could finally get this new level. … Continue reading Why the rush? – Blaugust Day 16

GW2: Which specialization to play? – Blaugust Day 6

The first beta weekend event is fast approaching and I can't seem to make up my mind. I know I want to try the new specializations, but I don't know which one. On my live account, I mainly played my warrior and my thief in PvE and my Mesmer in PvP. However, I am not … Continue reading GW2: Which specialization to play? – Blaugust Day 6

My gaming update

Day no. 6 and I already need to add a "filler post". I had planned to post about my dimension in Rift tonight, but due to a horrible back ache, I cannot spend any lengthy amount of time typing. So instead, I'll just tell you what I've been up to lately in terms of gaming. … Continue reading My gaming update

I am the “eternal soldier” kind of Guild Wars 2 player

ArenaNet currently offers Guild Wars 2 for 50 % off until November 9 - and to celebrate that (or in order to direct more people to that site, I guess), they added a little quiz: What kind of Guild Wars 2 player are you? My result was this: You're a... Eternal Soldier You know what … Continue reading I am the “eternal soldier” kind of Guild Wars 2 player

Weapon Master…

We have successfully moved and most of our stuff is in the new place. I have also been ill for the last three weeks - yes, my timing is impeccable. However, now that most things have settled, it is time to call for an end of our summer break and you'll see me blogging here … Continue reading Weapon Master…

Flammkuchen

Update April 10: I forgot to edit this post to say that this is, of course, just an April Fool's Joke, but to be honest, I did not expect anybody to fall for it anyway. ;) I just remembered that last year, I had posted a nice recipe on April 1 already and wanted to … Continue reading Flammkuchen
