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
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!)
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
After a long hiatus, I went back to Guild Wars 2. Of course, I also sat here watching the announcement of the next expansion "Path of Fire" excitedly, but unlike what feels like the huge majority of Guild Wars 2 fans, it did not leave me impressed. A new elite specialization for each profession, 5 … Continue reading New look, new character, new expansion
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?
First things first, we're running a little late here. Preparing the food for our family Christmas took longer than anticipated. So I will not be able to send out the emails with the codes yet. But we didn't want to leave without at least announcing who's won yet. All winners will receive emails from us … Continue reading Announcing the winners of our Wintersday 2016 Giveaway!

Last week, Rift's expansion "Starfall Prophecy" launched and yesterday, Guild Wars 2 released another content patch. Both games made me very happy as the patches feature my most favourite animal ever. Guess what animal that is! No, not dogs. Although that's true. Not rabbits either, although those are also my favourite animal. But no, my … Continue reading Making friends in Rift and Guild Wars 2
First of all, we have Rift and some tiny news about its upcoming expansion "Starfall Prophecy". We still do not have a date for the expansion's launch, unfortunately. I speculated about the time range before, but other than that, it's all guessing. Of course, us players are getting impatient as we would love to hop … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (September 2016)
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
