If anyone's listening, did he say the level cap is going to be 30 or 50 at the start? It's a little loud here so I couldn't hear clearly.

quick story cuz i never have anyone to tell.
at the vanafest in anaheim, me and a friend decided to explore the hotel, well we ended up sharing a long elevator ride with a few japanese people and a white guy that spoke japanese.

later in the event we realized it was tanaka, sundi and the translator.

Im sure if you can understand what they are saying this seems a lot cooler but without being able to understand what they are saying watching slides of things like in game map or still shots of characters of each race isnt very interesting.

Wow...this event is about as exciting as an Amway meeting :3 They all look so bored - there! - the Wakka/Totoro lookalike just yawned twice!

Where's the big reveals? Local release parties have spoilt us. (Yes - I like colours and incessant flashing, it pleases me)

Anyone else wishing something awsome like a picture of an Auction House would pop up on the screeen and the people in the audience would start cheering. I think even I would understand that!

But...why...so...dry?

Now remember, and I can´t stress this enough, this is a talkie, so I want the full gamut of emotions. You extras! wave your arms and make faces, what is this, a morgue?!, Action!, and I mean circus-grade action! - truer words never spoken.

Fast summary:
- Physical stat distribution will affect both crafting and gathering classes.
- There will be "open world" NMs outside of guildleves.
- Crafters will be able to cooperate in large-scale projects (cannon, boat, wedding cake).
- There will be guildleves where crafters and fighters/mages have to cooperate.
- The frequency of guildleve issue will be raised (or the time between issues lowered below 48 hours).
- In turn, anima regeneration will have to be raised (as travel back to town will become more frequent)
- New hairstyles will be added, as well as the ability to change hairstyle after character creation.
- The faction leves will see you fight beastmen tribes.
- This was, even for me, the first time I saw the whole f*cking trailer. Holy crap.
