    The factions were united and the non-human races were cast out of cantha. The Jade sea and Petrified forest still remain. Chances are it would be a story that focuses on the Tengu wanting to reclaim their homeland. Might include the Naga.
    I doubt the Jade Sea and Echovald Forest will still be in their petrified state.

    If you played Winds of Change at all in the first one you hear reports of waves moving underneath the jade and plant life growing normally in the forest. And that's only 7-8 years after the banishment/death of Shiro Tagachi.

    Then while everyone is out, you'll be inside with all the bandwith? i see no problem here!
    I'll just stick my laptop (insert laptop hardware discussion here*) in the backroom of my store and run through character creation

    In all seriousness, lets hope they open the servers at midnight instead of 10am.





    *i5 2430M @ 2.4 GHz
    Nvidia GT 540M
    6GB RAM
    640GB HDD partitioned into OS (name: Barley) and Data (name: Hops) sections. The computer itself is named Kegerator.

    The echovald forest was pretty green and verdant from what I remember of it. Sure the trees were dead but there was moss/grass and small shrubs all over the place.

    Yeah I was trying to determine what time they would do launch. Would they do it the same time they opened the beta's?

    There is nothing to suggest that they wouldn't do a 10am start since that is when all the other BWEs started.

    We should probably ask them if they have anything planned.

    I was thinking, since I want to always have my fingers on WASD, that I could use scroll click, M4, and M5 with key modifiers for all my skills plus dodging. I'd have 12 different combinations I could make easily without taking any finger off of WASD.

    edit: in stead of awkward CTRL + shift modifiers, I also have two out of five macro keys that are easy to hit with my pinky finger

    To anyone that got Digital Deluxe or Collectors Edition: if for some wonderful reason you decide to use your tome of influence for the FP guild, pm me or one of the officers about it before hand.
    I'd like to keep a list and try to do something nice for whoever donated theirs, someday.

    Well that's a bother.


    Since the thread is quiet, what are people going to choose for their main's crafting disciplines?
    I think I will go for Artificer and Chef. Magical weapons, plus potions, as well as all the foods from Chef. Consumables out the wazoo

    Edited:
    Actually, potions are kinda worthless now that I look at them. It's almost all just +damage % vs a specific kind of monster. I can't carry around a hundred different potions for all the monsters I fight.
    Maybe Tailor. Having bags and new armor is always nice.

    That's a good thought...

    I'm terrible with consumables. I rarely ever use them because I figure there will be a better time soon, but then I end up leveled past the stuff so much that it's nigh useless and I just toss it

    but the DYES

    and that chef costume looked cute on the asura, should have grabbed a screencap

    then again, I'm usually one to focus on self-sustaining equipment junk, so my elementalist would probably do tailoring, especially since tailoring yields bags and such. I could go back to make bags for alts and friends at any time so that'd be a great one.

    For secondary, maybe weaponsmith since I can (and do) use daggers, and other weapons would be handy to just sell for extra change

    wait, I don't remember, is dye character-bound or account-bound?

    Placing four dyes into the Mystic Forge to create a new account bound dye.
    Sometimes Unidentified Dye drops from gathering or mobs which when used become a random dye.
    Dyes can be acquired via the cooking crafting skill.
    Purchased from other players though the Trading Post
    There are 390 different colors of dye. All acquired dye can be viewed via the equipment tab on the hero panel interface.

    Thats what the wiki says, 390 dyes too its going to be like pokemon all over again.

    i also got dyes from pvp chests but i think they were account bound.

    unid or id dyes are not bound, but once you use one it's soulbound.

    I'm going to choose Leatherworking, Huntsman and Chef/Cooking on my main (Ranger). My brother will be doing Weaponsmith and Jewelcrafting so that we can share stuff with each other.

    I'll probably be contributing my tome to the FP guild. My reasoning is that its best that everyone throw it towards the larger guild as opposed to just guilds full of friends so we can get upgrades faster.

    Well that's a bother.

    Leathersmith for medium armour and bags, huntsman for rifles and pistols.


    But I found that it was really difficult to gather leather compared to wood and metal.

    They did so many things right

    Crafting doesn't require you to go back and forwarth with storage, you can deposite from anywhere into storage, you can access the Trading Post from anywhere to Buy and Sell

    There needs to be an audible chime or something when you click buy, though

    I tried leather-working and huntsman up to 50 in BWE1 and I found the items I could craft were worse than what I found elsewhere. I never did any crafting in the next two BWEs because of this. It has most likely changed since then but I was rather disappointed.

    I don't think it's 100% confirmed/decided yet until we get the official server list, but we will probably choose Gates of Madness like BWE3.
