ToA is approaching, and if things go according to plan, we should all be playing our newly-rolled Half-Ogre Wizzies and Frostalf whatever sometime next week. However, what will this mean for RvR on the server? It seems to me that RvR is going to have to take the backseat for a while now, almost like it did in the early days of the game when people were still going for their first level 50s and RvR was some relaxation after a long exp session. ;)

So, who will RvR as normal, and who will be PvEing full-stop in the coming month? What will ToA mean for the RP flow in Emain (most importantly, the Alb warder zerg should be greatly diminished to the dismay of RP farming Mids and Hibs ;)).

Discuss!

I believe the high RR gank groups will run out and farm master levels. The other lesser beeings might not even got toa straight away.
I think the warders will still be there for a while and all dragons knights and emerald ridare will go to toa.

Well i think that emain will be a lot less crowded, making rvr there mostl likely much better. I personally can't be arsed spend weeks purely with hardcore pve'ing, more fun to rvr too every once in a while. Don't think i'll even do so much ml's. All the abilitys in Convoker and Stormlord lines are more or less useless anyway.

I'm torn between going with the flow and join everyone getting items and stuff or enjoying the quiet emain (which will imo be a very cool time) and then bumping into the problem of making groups to complete ml's :|

will probably take a week or so for everyone to get ToA - and then I imagine emain will be like odins ;) and odins like HW and HW dead ;)

Personally I'm not all that fond of PvE, and it's generally something I do my best to avoid unless absolutely necessary (ie the occasional cash farm or a break from zergy RvR with some friends). So I want to get the PvE aspects of ToA out of the way as soon as I possibly can!

Basically my plan is to zerg ML's and Artifacts at every opportunity, and take the occasional break to farm Brehons and Vaktens for relaxation... :D

I'll struggle through the pve with breaks for rvr when I can't take it anymore. And I'll thank my lucky stars that I am a cleric and will always be fotm so I won't have to do this again next patch. :p

I'll play ToA with breaks in RvR, or breaks playing lower level alts - but I'll not be tackling it as an xp grind so I expect I might not suffer so much from boredom :p

I don't give a damn about the new items, having putting a heck of alot of time, effort and platinum into my new sidi/mp template recently im not about to change it no matter what drops for a long time yet.

However much to my dismay I will still be going full pve for a month or two to get the master-levels, and don't plan to seriously rvr till I have them all.

Im going to miss playing with the stealthers in odins/hw until then :( hope they wont forget me whilst im gone.
