  • To specialize or to be everything to everyone?

    Should hybrids have rights? In this week's common content article Ratboy examines the art of balancing 'jack of all trade' classes against the standard 'holy trinity' of gaming classes. Should the hybrid classes be put in camps to seclude them, or should they be accepted. Ratboy discusses.

    Classes in any standard MMO are usually divided amongst the ‘holy trinity’ of classes (Fighter, Healer, Mage) and whatever other classes are added are usually hybrids of these specific classes. The Warhammer World is a good example of a place where classes could be incorporated as singly specified or as having a more broad range of abilities and acting more of a hybrid class. So the question becomes; what is better? Are players who can do a little of everything more practical then the player who has spent his entire gaming career leveling up as just a fighter? Read on and I’ll explain the pitfalls of this scenario.

  • Still Thinking...

    Still thinking on an army to pick for Warhammer Fantasy, Ratboy continues the discussion as to what he should play. Between the infamous & improper suggestions of Yiffing and other more gamer related thoughts, Ratboy vows to make a choice.

I have no idea what army I am going to play for this new edition of Fantasy as I’ve been pulled in several different directions by the advice of different players and friends. So this week’s entry will continue my plight of trying to pick a Fantasy army.

  • Mount Bloodhorn Zone Overview

    It seems in his quest to get the zone guides up, Ratboy left out the ever-important first announced zone of Bloodhorn Mountain. Detailed now with Mythic's information and pretty pictures, players can get a sense of what exactly they can expect when adventuring in this zone. Also if you click the link you get pie!

    Decades ago, an Imperial expedition set out to establish a profitable trade route to the lands far south of the Empire. Unfortunately, the expedition suffered one hardship after another. The terrain was treacherous and the wagons were constantly in need of repair. Supplies ran short, and the caravan was frequently attacked by packs of wolves and bands of brigands.

  • Zones and Images!

    Not only did our team at Warhammer Ten Ton Hammer update their new community site today with class updates and images, but they have updates and images for four zones as well! Don't miss out...keep reading.

    Ekrund is the first zone we are looking at today.

    Amid the rocky slopes of Ekrund, the Dwarfs long ago built a great mining fortress that fell to their hated enemies, the Orcs and Goblins. As the Age of Reckoning dawns, Dwarf forces have made a determined push into the Dragonback Mountains, reclaiming the fortress at Ekrund and claiming a tenuous foothold in the lands surrounding it.

    Next we find ourselves in the The Badlands.

    'The Badlands' is the name given to the arid, rocky country that lies between the Worlds Edge Mountains and the Dragonback Mountains. To the north of the Badlands lie the Black Gulf and the Blood River, and to the south, the Blind River and the Marshes of Madness.

    Barak Varr is the next stop on this tour of zones.

    Barak Varr is the lone seaport of the Dwarf lands, and has long been a key commercial center of the Old World. The lion's share of goods exported from Barak Varr to places such as Tilea, Bretonnia, and the Empire pass through the city's heavily-fortified docks.

    Finally, we come to the Marshes of Madness.

    The Mourkain were a culture steeped in death and decay, destined for an unsavory end from the moment that their leader Kadon first discovered the corpse of King Alcadizaar of Khemri along the banks of the Blind River. The fallen king still gripped the sorcerous Crown of Nagash tightly in his hand.
