|Information about Talents and crafting?
||[Jun. 16th, 2010|06:12 pm]
Hey all. wow, not much going on here...|
I've been looking through the official sites for some information about the talents and the crafting in the game but I have been unable to find anything.
Is there really no official information about these two, I would've thought, important aspects of the game?
I think they removed the crafting forums in their official forum. You can still try and ask questions in the "new player discussion" area (or maybe even find a thread about crafting).
About classes and talents: They also removed the individual classes' areas. There's now only the archetype forums for more information.
You can try here: http://www.warhammeralliance.com/forums/
for more information. It seems like they at least still have those forums for information etc. ;)
Sooo... they are still actively sabotaging their own game by not providing such basic information?
I can't say I'm surprised. What a pity, it had so much potential...
I think they reduced their forums because they don't have the staff any more to monitor all those areas (although it sounds silly, especially as they've gotten volunteers as moderators). Otherwise, it just doesn't make any sense. People complained and were told to first test the new forum structure because they'd see then how awesome it is. But as far as I could see, nobody's too thrilled about it. But of course, Mythic won't reverse that change. ;)
Hmm, yeah, I was more hoping to find something like the WoW talent calculator where you could see all three talent trees and experiment with putting points in the various talents.
Sigh, And to think that I had been looking forwards to that game for almost 10 years...
Then maybe this: http://www.wardb.com/
is something for you? (--> "Tools" has a Career and a Renown Builder)
I don't know it it's updated, though. And maybe there are addons that at least lets you see all the talent trees in game? I thought there was something like this back when I was still playing. You couldn't put any points into the talent trees but at least you could have a look at them without standing next to a career trainer.
In 2012, there'll be Warhammer40k Dark Millenium. Maybe that one will be different... :) I'm at least following the news about the game. Of course, I didn't know about Warhammer before WAR was released (or rather, my boyfriend had told me about Warhammer but I hadn't known anything about it. Now I own a few little figures to paint and put on a shelf... or maybe even play one day. But it's expensive, so that'll have to wait a bit ^^).

Will that help?
Thanks. That's a bit more what I was looking for.
It's still disappointing that they have nothing on their own site.
Can you actually make anything useful with the crafting skills(Like in WoW)?

Re: Will that help?
I guess it all boils down to potions and talismans. Talismans are improving specs of weapons or armour permanently and potions are improving players specs temporary.
For example you have a shield +200 armour and one socket for talisman. You can insert +150 talisman and it will permanently increase your shield to +350 armour.
There is an in-game guide, that have few pages on skills and crafting.
