  • A gift for the magi...

    Darkgolem gives you what you want: a complete list of Level 1 spells from Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach! Even better, he tells what each spells does and how useful it is to a budding wizard or sorcerer:

    [Sleep] can be targeted upon a spot designated by a cursor, but the fast paced nature of combat makes this a difficult technique. When placed upon a running creature, it will appear at the location the creature was when activated, usually missing. Hypnotism is much more effective for disabling creatures until dealt with in other ways.

  • Consult the scrolls!
    Messiah, our World of Warcraft community site lead, has another TenTonHammer UI Mod review. This time I look at a mod that was recently suggested to me in game. The Mod is the ScrollingCombatText mod by Grayhoof.

    "This is a relatively simple appearing mod, however appearances can be deceiving. On the surface this mod does not appear to do a whole lot, however once you have played with it for a little while it's hard to part with."

    You can read the whole review at our WoW - TenTonHammer community site.

  • Gamespot had the chance to interview "Lord British" and got some great tidbits on his thoughts of the industry and why he thinks that Tabula Rasa is going to break the traditional MMO boundaries.

    S: Looking at the previous inductees to the Hall of Fame, pretty much all of them are still very active. At the same time, though, the Hall of Fame induction in most fields is kind of a career retrospective. I'm wondering if you worry or concern yourself at all that maybe your largest impact upon the industry has already been made.

    RG: That thought has at least crossed my mind, and, interestingly, I don't think so. And the reason why I don't think so is because Ultima Online wasn't that long ago. You could have made that argument previous to Ultima Online.

    I substantially believe that Tabula Rasa, the game I'm working on right now, is a dramatic departure from all other [massively multiplayer games] that have come before and will revitalize this segment again.

    Read it here.

  • Now this is the kind of Valentine's Day Event that I like to see!

  • A big party will be held with lots of baloons, cake and bloodshed!

    On March 24, 2006, game players around the globe are invited to participate in the Guild Wars Factions Preview Event, an exclusive and one-time opportunity unlike any offered before.

    All current Guild Wars players can join the event, and will be able to invite up to three of their friends using an in-game invitation interface. Entry into the beta event will also be available through the Guild Wars Factions pre-order package, which will include the Guild Wars Factions (GWF) pre-order CD, a GWF beta access key, a "friend" key that allows access to the beta event, a 14-day, 10-hour trial key for the original Guild Wars game, a tactical guide, and a quick-reference card. The Guild Wars Factions pre-order key also adds one unique item for each of the game's two new professions, the Ritualist and the Assassin, and authorizes the user to play Guild Wars Factions 24 hours before the game's street date in spring 2006. The Guild Wars Factions pre-order package will be available in retail stores nationwide beginning February 28.

    Sounds like fun!

  • Well 'tis the season and 1up has the exclusive info on what Blizzard plans to do for this day of love and mush.

    In order to make any headway in this rose-colored endeavor, gamers will need to stock up on "Love Tokens" from Innkeepers, which apparently constitutes the currency of love during the event. Blizzard states, specifically, that "In each capital, most of the guards and a couple dozen townsfolk are infected with amore. Periodically, they will become "Amorous" -- you'll know this by the floating heart above their head. An Amorous NPC is receptive to gifts of love, specifically Love Tokens (purchased from innkeepers). In return for a Love Token, they will reward the player with their own gifts. Some of these gifts are toys for players to play with, while others are "quest" items used to create Gift Collections." It gets more complicated than that though. Nothing is ever easy in the game of love, and as in real life, there is the horrifying possibility of rejection. But don't despair, where there's a will there's a way. In the event of rejection "there is a small chance when a player gives a Love Token to an NPC that he or she will be rejected. When this occurs, players will become "Heartbroken" for a certain amount of time. However, players can help their heartbroken friends by giving them a Friendship Bracelet and displaying the 'Power of Friendship.'"

    Hah to Boomjack! People ARE going to be saying "Just one more friend and I'll log off." I guess I'm going to have to switch from auto kill mode to auto hugs. It's a little disconcerting.
