Title: Back after roughly a decade or so?
Post by: Bezerker on April 07, 2014, 07:22:21 AM
Hello all,

Glad to see Arctic still around.  Just wanted to drop in and say hi.  Had the itch to play some Arctic and was excited to see a community (albeit small) still here and the MUD being maintained and updated.

I last played seriously around the time the ranger class was removed. I briefly played around the time DK were introduced. 

Excited to see all the changes.  Currently playing a low level DK and a low level mage. Spent the majority of yesterday struggling with the Conclave Test (really fun/frustrating. well done!). 

So far avoided being pk'd for offending someone too. I noticed clan tags are displayed now and clans are an official thing. Cool to see, though I know very little anyone to even join one haha.

I noticed items pop with +hit and +Dam and +spell level a bit more often now too. I remember +hit being super rare, but it seems they are not anymore.  Or am I just lucky?

Welcome back!  This is my first wipe in 12 years so I def understand the feeling.  If you need help with anything I'm usually on as Ramza.

Oh and yeah, hr is very commonplace these days.

Thanks! I'm generally playing as Gortark (DK) or Dakoran (Mage).   

How are scouts these days? Looks interesting. (I used to primarily play ranger back in the day.)

If you can get all the instincts they can deal a ton of damage.  I'm not sure but I think they are getting the axe after the lube project in favor of rangers.  If your going to be soloing a ton I'd say dks, shamans and warriors are the way to go.   If your going to want a group alot tanks/healers are always welcome.

Glad to hear rangers are coming back. They were my favorite.
