23 days until the CE bunch of us get to hopefully start playing(server stability and patch size depending of course).

In the upcoming days we will see the start of open beta, and with it, probably many changes being made that started with the end of beta 3's feedback. We all know what we hope to be changed / added *cough* removing surplus *cough*.

But other than the hot buttons so avidly discussed around here, what are your wishes, and what do you want to see before or at release?


For me, i would like the arrow keys to be able to change the camera, or fix the mouse problems. And on a non-actual gameplay note, the game to feel like when i started XI, large unknown world, helpful community willing to help and share info they've found, simple stuff like that. I just hope its at least a little ways down the road that the elitism kicks in.

So what about you?

I would weep tears of joy for them to add Ctrl+R; target closest npc/pc keys; a functional search and for them to remove that ridiculous NPC dialogue overlay.

OPEN BETA
  • Find out exactly which abilities stack with ranged attacks. Does bloodbath ? How about other attack boosts ? GLADs accuracy boost ? LANCs sneak attack ?
  • (Although at the moment I'm leaning heavy to start solos with Cures as needed->SS->shock spikes-> change to bow (out of combat) In combat, start with an attack, build tp, BB->ferocity->ranger buffs-> WS of choice. heal with second wind if needed, so I'm looking at Con20 pug6 Lan6 Mau6 for subs.
  • Get a solid feel for each craft, and then taking fishing +cooking no matter what, and either hide and leatherworking or logging(botany?) and woodworking.
  • (if applicable) Find out which God and starting city give the best bonuses for my play style


GAME (preorder CE- sept 22.)
  • Hope the UI is less laggy
  • Use stuff I learned in beta to get where I want to go faster
  • ???
  • Profit

Mouse lag is the single biggest factor that's keeping me from enjoying this game. After that are various UI hangups and annoyances (it takes me roughly 3 days to equip a new action). If they can solve those, then I'm all-in again. I may not like what I perceive to be the motivation behind surplus, but I'm a very casual player and it shouldn't be a detriment to my own playing experience.

Other than that, I'm liking a lot of what I'm seeing. Great music, nice, large zones, lovely aesthetic. I just really need to see some signs that they'll address the issues that I have.

I've been curious about this too. So I went to the beta manual, and under the character creation info:

Quote:

- Note
In the Beta version, a character's race, clan, gender, nameday, and guardian do not affect his/her attributes.A maximum of three characters can be created per account.


Guess it'll be a big mystery until the game goes live...

S'ok. I know I'm making a red "galka" archer with the word cannon somewhere in his name. I'll spend the entire first day rerolling to see how it comes out each time if i have to. And then ya know, report back my findings for all the lazy shmucks rest of the community.

Though probably wishful thinking, I would like complete control over all of the configurations when it comes to the controls. I can survive not having all my controls preset, I can also survive setting my controls 1 control after the other even if it takes me 30min to and hour if it improves my gaming expirience.
eg:: I prefer controlling the camera with the mouse "Hold right-click."
