Title: next wipe races alignment?
Post by: Morte on November 16, 2015, 01:32:02 PM
Does the alignment of the character legend unlock only one of the races?
I was considering playing an neutral or evil first will i be able to create a exotic race paladin next?

From my reading: yes and no I should say since you had 2 questions.

I think maybe it means it unlocks that race to make a new character with. Is that what you're asking? Or are you trying to morph something into a gully dwarf at lvl 30/legend?

Well if you are good you would be dargo. My assumption is that your alignment is static set for creation purposes once you legend.

I read it as, once you get a character to legend, you can make a new character as any of the exotic races.

When you reach legendary you have a new option in the start menu, a 5th option.  Once you log your legendary character you can pick option number 5 to roll a new character and the exotic races will be listed. 

This is the way it was before, and I don't see any reason for it to be different.

I guess you can read it that way. Most people I think are reading it the other way.

Honestly, I think the other way would be far more interesting and entertaining... I was excited about having to pick an alignment for legend!  (I read it like most people seem to have, that you get the align you legended.)   I thought it was an incredibly nifty idea, one of the better ones implemented in that note, when I first read it.

I disagree, I think it would be needlessly limiting players options. Our aging player base are more time poor every year (on average) and design should be mindful of our audience. Gone are the days where people have time to make a half dozen characters... mostly anyway. Restricting future character choices beyond the legendary requirement doesn't marry up with where we're at as a community, at least in my opinion. 

That's my two cents anyway :)

I agree with Jorquin.  That's why an update on the wipe would be helpful.  Me included, I know several players who are trying to plan holidays, vacations, etc. around the wipe and it is dragging on and on.  If the exact date is unknown, i'm sure you still know its going to be either this day or that day by this point.  Thanks.

Yeah I agree, next Thursday is Turkey Feast Day for us Americans and shopping weekend of death, then there are other obligations for most of us.    A lot of people need to ask for a day off ahead of time as well.  Even a ballpark idea would help.   I'm ready for some Chaos!    Let the new wipe begin!

Omg these impatient children. I hope they delay the wipe for an extra month every time you ask. They've said time and time again they will let you know when they know. If it is annoying for someone not even involved in the process to see  post after post regarding this, I wouldn't be surprised if it irritated the people responsible for making it happen.  Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

The wipe will not be Thanksgiving week or weekend.

We are currently targeting the week after Thanksgiving, somewhere deep in the week on a weekday.  When we have it nailed down Hoss or I will shout it from the top of Mt. Nevermind.
