  • Jungle Henge

    Smack in the middle of the Maguuma Jungle, you'll find this surprisingly well appointed town. The Henge of Denravi is one of the prettier locations in the game, especially around the fringes of town.

    Henge of Denravi (HoD) is a quiet, mysterious place. It isn't so much carved out of the jungle as a part of it.

    Read more about in our new Guide to the Henge of Denravi at Guild Wars - TenTonHammer.

  • Know Your DDO Spell Combinations

    We all know that any spell casting class finds strength in their spells; but what makes certain spells even more effective or deadly in Dungeons & Dragons Online? Spell combinations! Lyle Vertigo explains when and how to use certain spell combos to their greatest effect.

    Charm person + Cause Fear/Scare - With this you are reducing the number of aggressive enemies engaging your party and making use of the area’s resources. First start off by charming a nearby humanoid, preferably a fighter type since it will have a lower will save. Then follow up with a Cause Fear on a nearby spell caster-type or next level of threat, disabling its ability to take action and--if by coincidence the charmed enemy is near the frightened one--making it the target of your new pet. Cause Fear is great against spell casters, and using a charmed enemy on it will allow your party to take care of the hard-hitting melee fighters first before having to go after the potential danger of the spell caster.

  • Home, home on the range...

    A new walkthrough is up for The Hestia Back Range; Hestia’s training ground for new Freelancers. It’s a zone full of mysterious enemies, random scavengers, and giant mutated bugs. That’s why we are taking you mission by mision through the entire zone, from level two all the way to level five!

    This is a boss encounter that can be tough but doable at level four. Head to where the Maraudaun Crawler is located and begin the battle. Its damage is kind of weak but over time it can easily take you out. Set up any healing abilities you have and be ready to use a few consumables. Target the Maraudaun Crawler while you attempt to keep it in line for your front weapons. Just keep using any skills you have and using various healing items until it is dead. Pick up your loot and head on out!

  • Stuck in Stratholme?

    World of Warcraft's level 60 "Stratholme" instance was recently converted to a 5-person group instance from a 10-person raid. If you found that you could really use another five guildmates on your last Stratholme run, check out the newest guide from WoW - TenTonHammer:

    Stratholme is a very difficult instance to 5 man, so one of the primary concerns with group composition for a 5 man run is level. At least 4 of the members should be level 60 and preferable the whole group should be level 60. If you must take a lower level player with you on a 5 man run casters are not a good choice as the higher level MOBs and bosses will have an increased chance to resist them. Lower level healers are an option if they stay back and know how to manage aggro. If they move forward or cast large heals they will pick up aggro fast and need to be saved.

    Check out TenTonHammer's Updated Guide to Stratholme at WoW - TenTonHammer for information on the instance, tactics, loot and even a full map.

  • Know your enemy!

    According to Sun Tzu, a wise general wins the battle before the fighting actually begins. In Auto Assault, picking the right targets is the difference between great loot and experience versus calling for INC to haul your charred, wrecked chassis home. This guide will teach you how to recognize tough enemies, easy mobs, and everything in-between, plus teach you how and what to fight to maximize your take of experience.

    We all know Auto Assault is extremely fast paced, so we'll need a way to quickly separate the easy marks from the true smashers. If you've passed the Ishihara test for color blindness, you're in luck; your enemies' tag text will be a different color depending on its level compared to yours. Cool colors or white, and you're in good shape. Warm colors... you could be in for some trouble.

    Check out our new "Enemies and Experience" guide right here at Auto Assault - TenTonHammer.

  • 6 Million is apparently enough...

    Subscribers set to auto-renew on April 20th-21st weren't charged, according to Ignig.com and the Blizzard support forums, and subsequently couldn't log in to the game. With telephone lines clogged, those forums are starting to look like a PvP server. Except with more gankage. And no zone / level restrictions. Nevermind.

    It seems the company’s billing system has gone on the blink, causing some accounts to be put in the inactive file since their credit cards can’t be charged. What’s worse, the customer service lines are so clogged, some players are saying, they can’t get through to solve the problem.

    All of this is adding to the frustration of some players, who are now threatening to cancel their accounts. A post has appeared on WoW’s forums from company officials explaining the problem and how to fix it.

    Read Ignig.com's take on Blizzard's billing problems.

  • Auto Assault gets a chron job

    Chron.com reviews Auto Assault. They love the core of the game; the vehicularly destructive dash around a post-apocalyptic world, but disliked the in-town "out of the car" perspective. Personally, after playing Eve Online and never seeing my little spaceman, I think it was better than nothing. What were we talking about? Oh, Dwight Odelus' opinions, sorry :)

    The game play is relatively straightforward on paper: drive fast, kill stuff.

    But in practice, it's a frenzy. Smash through a squad of enemies with flamethrowers, send a rocket up the tailpipe of a van spewing radioactive goo.

    This isn't the whole of the game, but it's easily the best part.

    Check out TheChron.com's review of Auto Assault.

  • The plural of chassis is not chassiseseseis’s!

    The thought of purchasing a brand new vehicle in Auto Assault is overwhelming! Be sure to take a look at our chassis guide before making that giant purchase. There are a lot of misunderstood stats involved with a chassis upgrade and we all aren’t gearheads!

    Everyone likes to own an appealing car! That’s part of Auto Assault, driving around in something that represents your tastes and your style. While that’s true, you must also remember that defeating enemies is also a major part of the game. To defeat enemies properly, you’re going to need something that works for you.

    Dodge those used car salesmen and take a look at our Chassis Information Guide at Auto Assault - TenTonHammer!

  • Boxing Day!

    Remember the box your original copy of Guild Wars: Prophecies came in? The one with the glaring Warrior on one side, and the glaring Necromancer babe on the other. Yeah, that one. Now imagine it bigger—say, around 12x16 inches. We've got FIVE of these to give away.

    So what's the catch? There isn't one, really. All you have to do is tell us who your favorite NPC is and why. We'll select five of the most convincing fans and get a giant Guild Wars box sent to their home. (Warning: Oversize box does not contain oversize game discs. Boxes are not appropriate as a storage device for kittens. Boxes may have sharp corners and are unsuitable for cuddling, no matter how cute you find that necromancer.)

    The contest will run until May 8th, 2006. Post your entry at the Guild Wars - TenTonHammer forums or send an e-mail to Samyel (at) tentonhammer.com.
