I saw the news about the new Live Event for September and it’s good to see an appreciable step forward in the ambitions of the Live Event team, so a general nod of thanks to that development team.
When I first saw the news and read up about it, I did think of the Herne the Hunter figure, who was first introduced to me a couple of years ago (cough, cough) via the Robin Of SherwoodTV series starring Michael Praed (It was never quite the same with Jason Connery, though I did fancy Judi Trott something chronic). I appreciate all lore comes via Games Workshop(?), but from whence did their lore come from? Who says a bit of English folklore can’t be incorporated into a game. You can look at DAOC as a prime excellent of free lore being used as the basis for a game.
As far as the event itself is concerned, a dungeon entrance within an ORvR PQ event should prove interesting. I am sure that some people will be unhappy with some aspect or other, but I still feel that Live Events are a strong selling point of Warhammer Online.
Now, whilst perusing my Tome Of Knowledge, I actually spent some time in the Wards section, at which point when just clicking on the various sigil elements in the book, I noticed the right hand page, changing to reflect the various conditions under which that particular shard/sigil could be obtained without obtaining a specific armour piece. I honestly hadn’t got my head around the multitude of ways that the sigils could now be obtained. Multiple kills of RR45,55,66 people, multiple mob boss kills, etc etc. My only niggle and it’s a pretty minor one, is that once a sigil was obtained, it shined a little bit stronger in the book, it just seems a wee bit muted for my tastes.
Finally, Eldric reached 40 yesterday and is now ready for ORvR, ho hum.
