Chatty

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Well, this post was originally supposed to be about the Third Party Chat Support feature that SOE announced. It would be a cool feature, but unfortunately I couldn't get it to work. I'd like to think I could have eventually but I wasn't going to spend more than a half hour messing with it. The instructions need some serious work. Still, if you would like to try, check out this thread and perhaps it will help. It does require that you have an account with the Advanced Guild Features extra.

If you do have that optional add-on, please note that the SOE guild chat you can access via your guild page does seem to work fine and is a feature I really like. I use it as a way to see who is logged on while I am surfing the web or working on a post like this.

Since that was not much of a post, I'll briefly cover a few more items. My guild managed to get some Wyrmsteel weapons made and I think that quest was an interesting combination of tradeskill and adventuring. On the negative side, these weapons do not appear to have the desired effect on all Drakotas (they didn't seem to work on the Maiden Gulch Drakota). I think they are supposed to work well on Darathar and the Drakotas leading up to him but it would be nice if they weren't so limited in scope.


Also, if you remember my Splitpaw review, I stated that I had not tried the raids yet. Since then I have tried them and I just wanted to add that they are, indeed, imaginative and exciting raids. I recommend you try to do them without any spoilers as it will be much more fun. I never mentioned the Alone in the Dark quest either but that is a blast too. Pretty much the entire Splitpaw Saga has set the bar very high for future content. Let's hope the expansion can live up to that standard. It's a shame the Splitpaw Saga is not being reviewed by the mainstream media, while the expansion probably will be. I would like the general gaming public to know just how fun this adventure pack is.

Oh, and if you are planning a trip to the scenic Icy Dig, you better make sure you are are on good terms with your neighborhood armor mender, because you are going to need their services.

yeah I fiddled with the "new 3rd party chat" features for about an hour as well without getting it to work.

The instructions definitely need some help as they only really cover using one program which I wasn't going to download and install when it also mentions that their is a plugin available for Trillian. But the configuration is completely different.....

My guild made a run down to the "Forge of the Ages" about a week ago, and it was damn fun! It took FOREVER since we had 100+ wyrmsteel weapons made, but it had a completely different spin from other raids I've been on! From the gathering to the calling out... it took around 10 hours, with one combat session lasting 4+ hours. Crazy I tell you, crazy... but memorable. =)

I got the exodus version working finally. Bit of a pain but I perserved

I wish they would just simply take the time to make the web chat one work via proxies.
