The Plan

Early access for The Secret World begins today!  The launch of a new MMO is a fun time, despite all of the likely issues.  I have not exactly been fawning all over TSW, but it should be an interesting game.  So here is my plan.

Faction.  I will be rolling a Templar.  The Illuminati is nice and all, but I'm in the mood for some righteous fury.

Dimension.  A dimension is TSW's version of a shard, but it is not a server.  It's basically a big instance of the game world which allows you to change on the fly.  So I have not really given it any thought.  I'll probably just roll on a PvE dimension.

Cabal.  This is their version of a guild.  I have no plans on joining one at the moment.  I'm not sure  I will stick with TSW, so I am not comfortable putting down any roots.

Weapon of Choice.  Just like in beta, I will be going with an Assault Rifle.  No particular reason except that it is a machine gun and feeds into my Commando fantasy.

PvP.  I might be checking out the PvP areas.  I am pretty sure they have a Bolster mechanic which helps us slow advancers at least compete.

That about covers my thoughts going into The Secret World.  This weekend will be a busy one for me, so I'm not sure how much time I'll actually get to play.  Probably better off that way as we know how these launches can go.
