Reboot

Its been about a week or so since I got back to The Secret World (TSW), more accurately the reboot Secret World Legends (SWL).   What always did appeal to me in TSW was the amazing story.    Funcom decided to reboot TSW into SWL and being free to play from the get go.    I remember being hesitant for months when I heard about TSW, whether I wanted to spend money on the game.   I did.   TSW was and is a lot of fun.   I have a max level character there, well kitted out.   Routinely ran dungeons and raids and was gearing for the end game.

Life led me elsewhere for a while and when I got back to TSW and my guild, the Message of the Day was the Guild was disbanded.     That rocked me.  I had a lot of people there I had enjoyed running content with.

Fast forward a few months, the reboot was announced so I waited.

Do you leave your max level, kitted out character and start over again with no gear, no money, nothing.

I did and many others did too.

Secret World Legends is still The Secret World, just better – at least I think so.  I know of people that grumble about this that and the other.    The new player experience is much better.  A number of in game mechanics have been streamlined and made more accessible.

Plus I still look awesome.

Now if Funcom can just work out why I can’t create a character with my reserved name from the previous incarnation, I’ll be set.   As it stands no one knows who I am here, and that’s not a bad thing.

If you’ve ever wanted to try another MMO, I certainly recommend this one.   The ingame community is top notch, thats a legacy from TSW and it continues here in SWL.

Shes’ got the look

When I created my Dragonborn I knew from the outset the look I wanted, and that was a dragon like race wearing dragon scale armor.

Many thanks to fellow guildies for contributing heroic white Dragon Scales so that I could make this.  As soon as I get a few more favor points I’ll be glammering this and back to wearing my proper armor underneath.

Of Dragonborn

The Dragonborn arrive in Eberron and Cormyr and while they are not the normal race I would play, I must say I really do like the look of them.  They remind me of Draconians from Dragonlance.

While venturing around in Kings Forest, I was left little choice in killing a kin-race.     I’ve got mixed feelings on this one.  I was willing to negotiate;  give me your treasure and you can live.   Simple enough terms I thought.   Anyways, dead dragon it is.
