*ding 80* and ~ 15 minutes later... *ding 20k+ IL(Item Level)*...

*pow* *bam* I played him all the way up as a tank, only trying dps long enough to know that it's very satisfying and hard to not play. After swapping back and forth for awhile every time the Role Bonus for Tank would come and go in the Dungeon queues.. it was too confusing. I was using the same general powers but they worked different enough to be confusing and the main goal was to come out of this with a decent tank anyway.

Anyway woohoo. I'm already farming Vallenhas and ME. Minutes after dingation elation. Had to share. *Now* I know why I still play this game  : )

Now I also know why I'm lagging so far behind the megastat people.. You really do have to know what to upgrade.. You not only need an augment companion but you need a gold one. You need gold Bonding Runestones for him and then you need Gold slot fillers in your gear.

So...much...cash...

I would say my stats are .... ~ half of what gold users report and I have about as good as gear on as you can get... without golding my toys or slot fillers.

But hey, look, we get a freebie today! Now I will have exactly 1 piece that is best of the best... what to choose:

If you ever play this game you have to read this:
https://jannenw.info/pages/mechanics16/stats

Skip to the bottom if you want the bottom line.

It can be hard to know where to put your stats in the beginning. It seems super simple to me, now, but, when I first started playing I didn't know about Augment Companions or what the caps were or how they worked. I mean, for example, who knew what the opposing stats were. Or what they were even close to. How am I supposed to build a counterstat against a stat I have no idea about..

Anyway, yeah. I share the joy. It's amazing how many people spend so so many hours on getting gear with stats they don't really understand. Like I did  : ) More Power is not always the best solution - and that is all you will hear in chat is how much Power people have and how important it is to get more. Neither is going way over your cap on one stat at the expense of another. Item Level is not the ultimate thing to have, either. It's all about knowing stats and bonuses (special gear ability) and making them work for your build.

Who knows, Homecoming may have some server down time and you're bored  : ) That's what backup games are for.

OMG Patch Notes! We never get Patch Notes! It must be really, really important..

https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/neverwinter/news/detail/11417473

Or legalistic..

~~~~~

btw I mentioned the STO Newb Event and I was wrong over there, Neverwinter's newb event still has a couple days left in it.

It's been a really great time to make a newb, but, what I wonder, is... if I make a newb today and continue to level it after the event do I still get the great event goodies as I level... I've still got at least 2 newbs I wanna make and I have their names picked out I just have to roll them up and lebel them.

*shrug*

So, there's that to consider about the event. I think you get the bag pretty early on (level 20? 30?) so I might just go for it for that alone.

I have finally deduced how to win NW. You need cash. Lots of cash. Be it virtual or real or both. And, you need to know every place to put it.

Now.. The things I have farmed, to wear, are superior/far superior to what can be bought. But. If I threw it all away and bought all my gear in the Auction House, along with what I can't currently afford, I would have total stats far superior to what I currently have (after 6 months since my first toon) without fighting a single mob or completing a single mish (I think I still have to fight mobs to get to level 80 but I don't have to level my companions - I can buy that).

NW thought of the day. No applause or criticism just an observation.

I have some nice nice gear, now, compared to before. I'm pretty happy with it overall. One of the things I like most about it, is: I picked it myself.

I'm used to seeing questions about how mechanics and gear procs work, and, 'where does that drop', but it has been unusual to see people dress other people so often in NW's endgame due to they asked for it.

What is the BIS...

First, why did we have to invent yet another term for Uberest, and second, usually there is no single BIS. Think for yourself. Dress yourself. And while you're at it, try coming up with your own build and try learning a dungeon without Youtube *nod* and maybe even try showing someone new how a dungeon works before auto-bailing because everything isn't cookie cuttery enough for you.

Every game has its thing. Its hard to take NW leetist attitude serious when you know someone else dressed the person in question and someone else gave them their build.

"Hey you kids, get off my lawn!"

hehe

grumpy grumble about nothing mode:/off

bye

That was a good rant up there ^^.

I never saw so many "tell me what to wear - tell me who's build that someone else came up with should I use" questions before playing NW.. Then out comes the wallet and the copy and paste..

*leans back in rocking chair*

"back in the day we called that..."

nm  : )

Damn, what did I come here for.. Humm... Hey, my new main seems to be a Fighter. My main Alts seem to be Warlock and Rogue and I can't play my Rogue anymore until he's upgraded to a level I've gotten used to.

Fighters are super cool. (No one else plays them btw and ppl would probably tell you to play a Barbarian instead so fighters probably aren't (B..IS)) When playing dps they're kinda like what I remember Brutes being. They can build up damage and they can do respectable damage and they can tank, not great, but better than any other dps. They also make good actual tanks when in tank mode and I've played mine as a tank ~ as much as I have dps. I kinda prefer DPS, but, then again, sometimes it's nice to have the rules say it's actually good for me to step right in the middle of things, and, tanks and healers can make the queues pop a lot faster too.

Hell Pit is on. I couldn't participate when it came around last time due to my gear wasn't good enough to let me gain admittance. Now, lucky me, I get to sign away my soul. (can we get a new theme anytime soon NW..?) So far so good. I think we are only like midway through and it's supposed to get a lot harder, though (and it's a Solo Event). *shrug*. We'll see. I like the event so far due to the carnage factor. It's been reminiscent to CoH AE salvage farming which I enjoyed so much right up to the very last minute sales.

~~~~

HEY!

Now I remember what I came here for.. Console NW.. Console NW actually looks decent/really good.. I have succumbed to YouTube watching pressure due to lots of Fails and Rarely anyone wants to teach you anything in-game for queue content, and, due to a spare minute for nothing else here and there.. and.. the videos I like most so far (by far) are from a Console dude (The Assist Man). I think he possibly no longer plays, but, through his Console videos I see a NW that looks similarly fun to PC NW. I personally would not like to play Any MMO with a console but ppl do... Assist Man who taught me as much as anyone and who looks like he is having fun and is a pretty good player, does, and so does Thunder Glove, from here - so, yeah, check this game out if you have a Console, was what I originally came here for today..  : )

Whaaa?

It's another free goodie that's pretty good. 10 Genie Gifts - the gift, is, the Genie does Boon farming (ugh..) for you. I already picked up like 3+ easy boons while 2x legacy XP was(?) on, with GGs, and now they're giving me moar.

Anyway, yay. And if you were interested in that you might be interested in the Bel event going on in Vallenhas for an artifact perma-clicky that goes in your potion/clicky slots that gives decent buffs that get better as you refine it. I think the bugs are finally worked out of the event, too.

I have no idea what this blank message was but it's here so I'm commenting that I have no idea how it got here. I thought I posted something about the Genies Gifts being an old giveaway that was still current and that they felt the need to re-advertise for some reason. Maybe I flubbed that post? I dunno.. *shrug*

Soo, yeah. Even more goodies. New goodies. New free goodies. OK, actually, it's a box filled with your choice of a free goody if we're going to get technical..

https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/neverwinter/news/detail/11446223

It's your choice of IL 1010 Companion Gear. Yum.
