The Helm’s Deep expansion has been out for almost a week. This past weekend, along with some of the officers from The Osgiliath Guard on the Elendilmir server (I’m not an officer; I work for a living), we had a discussion about the expansion.
Joining me are Alanion, Grayrider, Osdor and Renani.
We talk about the shock of half our skill buttons vanishing on login, trait trees, the new areas, Big Battles, class changes, mechanics and other topics (including a blatant and shameless recruiting ploy).
This is not a comprehensive discussion of the expansion, nor is it meant to be a guide through the new zones. It’s just us talking about our impressions in the first few days of playing.
Once we’re through the learning curve, we’ll probably have another discussion in a month or so once we’ve gotten to the level cap and had a chance to play through the new content. I’d like to start another round of class roundtables sometime in the near future, too.
For those of you in the United States, happy Thanksgiving! (I know; we’re six weeks later than the Canadians!)
