Yesterday was a big day for WAR, 1.3.5 hit the live servers. Patch days rarely go smoothly and this one was no different. There were a few bugs and some unexpected downtime. The downtime and real life conspired against me so I was only able to play for a little bit. How did it go?
Before the game went down to be patched, Destruction had pushed 2 pairings closer to Altdorf. Not long after the servers were up the first city siege commenced. Luckily, our alliance was putting together a warband which I joined. When the siege started, we had a full warband in the instance.
The siege itself went very smoothly, I didn't see any bug complaints. It was a bit hectic as this was the first time for many of the players. Destruction trickled in and were outnumbered (by a little) for much of the siege. They also seemed like they were pugging it, which puts them at a disadvantage versus an organized group. Word of advice: You will have a lot more fun if you organize.
We ended up winning all 3 stages and somehow I won a bag in each stage! I won a Gold (Massive) bag in stage 1 and a purple bag in stage 2 and 3. I'm not sure how that happened, as I rarely win bags. What were in my bags other than the normal choices?
- Stage 1 Gold: Piece of Invader or 10 Invader crests
- Stage 2 Purple: Warlord weapon (Long Rifle of Boundless Focus) or 5 Warlord Crests
- Stage 3 Purple: Overlord armor or 5 Royal Crests
As for that Warlord weapon...
Ranged snare? yes please. It isn't a huge upgrade, but I am going to try it out. Lately, my wounds have gotten a bit low due to other upgrades. I may have to readdress my talismans to add some survivability. Needing to make these choices is a large part of why I have fun in WAR.
After a ride to the bank, 3 more bank rows were purchased. I could use some more, but I'm too cheap to spend the gold. That is about all I was able to do yesterday. Today I hope to try our that new mount, we'll see if Destro cooperates. How did it go for everyone else?
