Hello to all those that have wandered here. I thank you for taking the time to explore my little corner of the online gaming universe. Solcraft has been dead in the water for over a year now. I’ve often reflected on making new posts over that past year but the highly customized theme system that I was using did not work well after certain WordPress updates. This made the site’s functionality take a turn for the worse. I made several attempts to correct the issues with my themes. However, these days I burn out quickly when it comes to trouble shooting and coding. I have finally bitten the bullet and decided to abandon the old layout in favor of a more easily maintained theme system. I will be making some customization to it but nothing to the extent that was in place before...Read More
For anyone interested in Blizzard’s upcoming shooter, don’t forget that the first beta test weekend starts today and runs until Monday. Remember that it is a stress test and there is a high possibility that there will be a good deal of lag as well as some server instability as Blizzard tests their Overwatch server hardware. If you are willing to endure those potential issues and are a fan of Quake like shooters, I think you will have a pretty good time as the game looks to be really fun and fast paced with a lot of people comparing it to Quake. I will be trying the game a bit myself and possibly streaming some of my gameplay. I will post my initial thoughts later.
I haven’t been playing much Tree Of Savior since my last post as the issues I have with the current state of the beta still persist though from what I hear from others that are playing at the higher levels, it doesn’t really get much better. That being said, I’m still rather interested in the game’s development as I believe it has the potential to be a very good game should the developers make the correct decisions and make up for a few of their poorer choices. Recently the game’s developer released a trailer and announced plans for a Korean open beta set to begin sometime in December. If we are to assume that the trend will stay constant then we can expect an international open beta to follow a month or two afterwards...Read More
This will not make any sense to anyone who has not played Tree Of Savior at all or read anything about it, however I will try to explain what it is I’m talking about. Tree Of Savior, like many other MMORPGs, has a skill system. I mentioned before how some of the classes have core skills that have ridiculously long cooldowns associated with them. What I failed to mention was that the damaging spells and skills appear to have no natural scaling whatsoever. While the main stats provide some improvement to the skills’ damage, they don’t appear to have as much of an impact as one would expect.
With my chronomancer for instance, I wanted to see if a different stat build would provide some sort of benefit in the sp regen department so I tried a more spirit heavy build and went with less intellige...Read More
