So, Call Of the Forsaken was released in Phinigel a couple of weeks ago, and it's time to talk about how we are doing and our impressions of this "new" expansion!.
A cataclysm arrived to Norrath!. A mysterious dragon,Lady Lendiniara traveled from another dimension, passed through Ethernere, and tore into this dimension into the Karanas. While this is a cataclysm, the fact that now there are actually more than zero players in the Karanas is an absolute win in the eyes of the Qeynos Tourist Travel Agency.
Bixies are in the warpath because all the powerleveling we did in the Stone Hive. Neriak's King and Queen are so mad at each other that they built Neriak Fourth Gate, a new zone located inside a big cavern so they can now yell at each other without having to see each other's faces thanks to the improved acoustics!. We also get access to the Plane of War and face the Zek brothers (yet again!).
Of course we have the karanas and the Qeynosian, which I still don't know if they are now good or evil?. I mean, one raid we help them, another we kill them?. I guess when your city is so lame that people born there don't even bother to place the Origin AA in their hotbars, that everyone leaves your city as soon as possible to move to Freeport, and that the only fact people knows about your city is that its name is "SonyEQ" spelled backwards can wear you off and turn you into a villain I guess.
This expansion features Heroic Adventures, these reward a hefty ammount of AAs and the ones in Dead Hills are really easy and fast. A big boon to people catching up or who recently joined the server. Honestly, it's a great expansion to come back, or even start over.
Of course, you have the usual progression questlines, the raid and group currencies, and the difficulty is pretty tame most of the time.
For those people who at some point in the game were so bored they skilled up tradeskills, it looks they get a lot of new recipes and crafted stuff looks pretty good and interesting.
"Things to do in Call of the Forsaken"
How is Rosengard faring in this new expansion?. We are doing pretty great, thank you!. We easily beat the T1 raids and we are working on the T2 raids now. We already defeated Lord Kyle Bayle in the Tower of Rot to make him pay for his villanous intentions. We actually have no clue what he is up to, to be honest, but he broke some nice furniture when we got there and Rosengard does not endorse that behaviour!. T2 raids are a bigger challenge and we will have a lot of fun learning the mechanics and, of course, beating the baddies, and looting all the cool shinies!.
Anyway, loads of fun so far!. See you in Norrath!.
After flawlessly defeating all the raid encounters ins RoF, people always ask me "How do you do that?", "Spoil some secret strategy!", so here is a video of how we fought that bearded midget lady in Crystal Caverns:
Other raids were a bit tricky and it took a lot of effort to figure things out. btw, whoever named this screenshot ashokal.jpg is an ass. and a genius.
And last but not least: A few quotes from our more eloquent members:
