Hergthog the Troll Skald is Born

DAOC troll

My new Skald troll Hergthog ready for action

I was perfectly happy trying out instances in DDO, but as I played lately I found out that I really missed Dark Age of Camelot. The Gaheris pve server experiment turned out to be short lived. For a few days, I experimented with a hunter, and though I liked the class, it was just to lonely to try to solo, I gave up after 7 levels because I missed the ability to team up and to talk to other players.

I rerolled a skald troll and on the ywain servers, where I know the b.g.s await and where i can get into some fun and serious grouping. Zergs and PUGs in other games don’t tend to be as friendly or as fun as DAoC, and this time around I plan to spec my toon correctly from now until 50, should I go that far.

I know what awaits me, I have done this before, and I hope to reach max level before the trial ends in 10 days, but it probably won’t happen, I will probably sub to see the journey through. One thing I know, I do not like ToA (Trial of Atlantis) that much, I am not sure that I will go beyond 50, but it remains to be seen. If I am having fun, then maybe. So far I have tried Berskerkers, hunters and skalds and even a bonedancer, all Midgard.

I will document my progress in this latest journey for your amusement. Come back in a few to see how I do and what I discover.

Hey Captain, be a good lad and take me to the Marketplace.

Back mmo gaming for the summer and updating!

The Kill the Goblin blog is back! Even though wordpress coding practically killed my blog, at the very least I have managed to modify the look of it as much as possible, I think there is something wrong with the CSS, but who the heck knows, I have very little time to fix it. If any of you are like wizzards with WP and design, drop me a line, I would love to hear from you. In the weeks to come I will utilize this blog to document my mmo gaming and writing related to mmo gaming during the summer. So check back often. For the record, mostly playing DAoC and have tried out Aion of late. What are you guys playing these days??

Beam me up Bratty

This weekend I had a chance to spend more time playing both DAoC and STO.

I am far from catching up with all the episodes thus far released by Cryptic for the Trek mmo, but I did manage to get through the tutorial. My toon Jack O’Lantern was promoted to Lieutenant and given command of the U.S.S. Summers, but I forgot to save after my last mission, and will have to (annoyingly) run through it again. At least I know where everything is on the map of the starship I beamed to the other night.

I learned one thing about this game: Starfleet Academy is very life like, or at least what it would be if it existed in real life, but alas that zone is very laggy, perhaps so much foot traffic on the servers, or perhaps my crappy rig, can’t tell, either way, not going to be spending much time there since there appears to be very little to do there in the first place.

Since I am way too tired from work to actually elaborate on a full post I will just leave you with some snapshots of my toon’s recent adventures. Sure felt good to move up in rank, at least soon he may get more than one bridge officer.

We can only hope.
