  • Server Merge Updates

    Auto Assault has posted several items on the official site to help you navigate through the server merges that are happening today. Keep reading to see what you may need to do.

    Character Transfers
    Auto Assault has posted a walkthrough to help you get your character over to the newly merged server, Nexus.

    Character Name Correction

    Previously we noted in the Server Merge FAQ that if a transferred character's name collides when you transfer it, you will receive an email regarding what you can do to change the name. Now however we have made it so that you will be able to simply change the character's name in the character selection screen in-game rather than externally.

  • Creatures of Middle-earth: Neekerbreekers

    On the official Lord of the Rings Online site, we are given a look at some of the creatures that will inhabit Middle-earth. Today, we are given a glimpse at Neekerbreekers.

    Throughout Middle-earth there are many forms of insect; some mere annoyances, others more dangerous, and some that are a mystery rarely, if ever, seen. Neekerbreekers once fell into the last category. For ages, they were merely a distracting noise in the dark corners of the Midgewater Marshes, but recently a shadow has passed through Bree-land, and they have become more aggressive and begun to swarm.

    Learn more about Neekerbreekers and see what they look like. What do you think of this creature? Let us know at LOTRO Ten Ton Hammer.

  • Blizzard unveils the first details of its upcoming player-versus-player enhancements.

    IGN posted an article with all the details and a few screenshots on this upcoming update to World of Warcraft.

    But the big news today is the scoop on world PvP objectives. Whereas before it usually boiled down to getting "wtfpwned" by roving bands of level 60 characters in Stranglethorn Vale, Hillsbrad Foothills and other areas where the victims couldn't possibly be a threat to their assailants, the new world PvP content will take place in Silithus and Eastern Plaguelands, although it may eventually branch out to other areas. Silithus and EPL are the highest-level zones in the game right now anyway (Deadwind Pass is too small to count, really), so it will generally be level 55-60 players bashing away at each other.

    Keep reading to see how you may soon be able to join in the World PvP! Check back to WoW Ten Ton Hammer for all the latest updates and news.

  • Summer Plans Revealed

    John Scott Tynes, Producer of Pirates of the Burning Sea, adds an entry to the dev journal at MMORPG.com.

    ConCo, our content creation team, is busy working on missions for ranks 16-30. New missions and characters are going in all the time and it’s great stuff. We recently added the ability for NPCs to react to a player emote, so that if you use “/emote bow” before a noble we can have him acknowledge your action.

    Read the entire entry and then let us know what you think in our forums. Stay tuned to Ten Ton Hammer for all the latest news on Pirates of the Burning Sea and all your favorite MMOs.

  • Guild Reward...Boon or Bane?

    Guild rewards are a unique feature of EverQuest 2, but what benefit do they provide the playerbase? RadarX takes a look at the pros and cons of guild rewards, and argues with invisible naysayers.

    Why join a guild? Other than drunken voice chat? The social interaction, and having people readily available to group, for quests and raids, is a great start. EverQuest 2 has put in a deliberate system of rewards for guilds. Whether it's crafting machines for your home, special residences, or guild clothing there is a little something for everyone. Recently, even charms with special one use abilities, food, drink, and titles were added. How do you obtain all these wonders? Just obtain a high enough guild level by doing heritage quests, writs, killing raid mobs, or selling status items. Sound neat? Oh it is! These guild rewards are nice, and have there place, but I think there are a few problems ignored.

    Find the Catch-22 at EQ2 Ten Ton Hammer and let us know what you think!

  • Bettering Biomeks
    As we go through and quality check all our content and guides, we realised that we needed to bring the Biomek section up to speed, so we gave it an informational, organizational, and aesthetic rennovation. Basically this means better info and better looks!

    Hundreds of years passed with conflict. No one knows what happened that one day, but whatever it was it nearly destroyed the Biomeks. When the dust settled, the hearty Biomechanical Raiders were still alive. Shrugging away the assault the “pure” Humans launched at the world they began to continue what they were created for. War against the Mutants. In the current time, the Biomeks live out life attempting to gain peace in the world. That peace is when they convert everything into a Biomek.

    The Biomek Racial Section, now updated for your data consumption needs! Look forward to yet more updates coming soon at Auto Assault Ten Ton Hammer

  • Blackrock Depths, Upper and Lower Blackrock Spire, Stratholme and More!

    We have yet more updates today to our where to adventure guide! Today we focus on high-level instances and have updates for Blackrock Depths, Upper and Lower Blackrock Spire, Stratholme, Scholomance, Dire Maul, Zul'Gurub, Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj, Onyzia's Lair, and the Molten Core!

    Blackrock Depths (BRD) is located in Blackrock Mountain between the Searing Gorge and the Burning Steppes and is meant for levels 50-56. There are many quests located in BRD and it is an excellent place to level when you are mid 50's. Blackrock Depths also contains the entrance point that must be reached to access the Molten Core for the first time.

    The instance is full of Dark Iron Dwarves and elementals. Most of the quests revolve around the Dark Iron Dwarves or the various elementals in the area. For a complete list of quests in the zone check out our TenTonHammer database entries for Blackrock Depths .

    For miners there are several places that you can mine dark iron in the instance. It is also where you must travel to to create dark iron bars and to turn them into items, so prepare for multiple trips back here.

  • It's Your Thang...Do What Ya Wanna Do!

    Some people like to be in the thick of the battle, swinging their sword with all their might.

      good melee bashing     
    • I prefer to be in the thick of it with my sword, but casting is a
      good change of pace every now and then     
    • It never matters to me; I’ll be whatever my group and guild need
