Something Awful Q/A... !?
With E3 over there is tons of WAR information spreading across "the internetz". Joshua Drescher, the WAR Associate Producer has posted over at Something Awful with a WAR Q/A. Here it is:
So can you touch on character advancement at all?
No levels. Four tiers, with ranks within each tier. You'll have 4 XP bars that allow you to select "packages" of advancements - abilities, static buffs, skills, etc. that you want to work on. Three will be "standard" bars, one will be RvR-specific.
The packages allow you to select advancements that interest you without level-locking them. So, if you're a big fan of exploring and you want to get a mount earlier than - say - an improved combat ability, you can choose a package that includes the ability to use a mount. Packages will have SOME restrictions - most likely tier-specific - but they offer players the ability to wind up with all of the stuff they want eventually, but also the ability to get it in the order of their choosing.
