More news on Enedwaith
So we had another intersting article from Massively, along with some screen shots of the new Region. All in all its sounds pretty interesting and I’m really looking forward to getting in there and giving it a try. The Instance interface sounds interesting. I have mixed thoughts about breaking the Instances down into wings and letting people jump into them from anywhere in the world. To some extent breaking the instances up, and the insta-port feature feels like its catering for the new influx of WOW-esque players with ADHA who want to run fast everywhere, and everthing to be quicker, and simpler, and destroys the narrative of these instances. On top of this the Lore side of me thinks assembling your party together, for example in Evendim and fighting your way into Annuminas and clearing the zones is part of the experience of the game. However, the tired parent with very limited game time these days, and who has already seen a lot of this goes AWESOME!!! This is no deal breaker for me, and it is nigh on impposible to gets groups for some on these instances, so maybe this new port-to feature will mean people can join groups and carry on questing up until they are all good to go, then just all port in. I suspect I’ll use this feaure quite a lot in the time to come!
Oh, and new factions horse and cosmetics….. sold!
