Transferred my 70 BE Rogue over to the Wrath Beta the other day. So here are some gameplay thoughts.
It’s interesting having to redo my talents everytime I log in. Went with a 51 pt combat build (s1 swords) this time around. With Blade furry, sword spec, adrenaline rush, unfair advantage… It’s Cuisinart Rogue! May have to try a bit of herding…
I’ve only been through a few of the quests, halfway to 71 now, but there are some that I really like. Freeing NPCs and having them help out is always fun.
Smashing 100 undead with a tank that’s armed with a big saw… Well, that quest’s good for a little extra grinding. “Hey boss, I killed 3,650 of the scourge things, is that ok?”
Riding under the flying carpet was interesting… (sorry, no screenie, I was asleep at the switch.) Guess the Devs thought it was a glider type parachute.
Speaking of parachutes, yep you’ll get to parachute down at one point (at least.) Very cool.
Joined a guild, Violence, that has 350+ members. Quietest guild I’ve ever been in.
I like the mist effects.
Yeah, I’m looking forward to Wrath.
edit: by the way, I’m already seeing green gear that’s, in some ways, as interesting as my s1/s2 PvP gear. I expect in a couple levels I may be thinking about going back to greens.
