Yet it was the best time I had.
Endless fins groups made it more fun though.
Power levelling killed DAOC pve. My first couple of 50s were done the old way, grouping with a hero and soling (without a buffbot) with a ranger. Grouping was awesome on the hero, Corus mines groups, Darkness falls groups, glimmer groups, proper fins groups. The ranger was pure hell but so worth it when it dinged 50.
It wasn't that bad. You just had to pull faster that's all.. When i leveled my shammy in there i had a new batch inc while the first one were only half dead. We kept missing DT because of it though... >.<
Before power levelling daoc pve was fun for it's time, but once SI had come out I started getting bored of killing the same mob with a different skin. I guess that there was better variety in other games at that point made me start thinking it wasn't so great.
I liked leveling in DAoC because it encouraged grouping and because i made new friends that way. I'm not making new friends in say SWTOR or WoW because they are way to solo oriented...
IIRC It got boosted massively with ToA Giant Pets (ML5 Caby) with damage shields, then boosted again with the heal procs. In POC I used to pull two rounds of 30 plus mobs with a caby, friar and bot. 3 years ago it became stupidly fast with the BG quests etc.
Would agree with that totally, DAOC was great in the early days for PVE social pick up groups. Best times I had PVE'in any game was doing gobo's in Cornwall with Fii, Madonion, Zeyd, Spiral and the like. Great times. You actually felt like you acheived something leveling to 50 in those days.
Heh just got an email 7 days free to try the new patch, sorry Bioware i won't be coming back ever.
Well said (although I do meet new people in SWTOR)
(edit: I must change my ancient sig!)
